...Petite Patisserie and some shiny blog candy


ED - the winner of the blog candy was:
This is such a darling set! Love the cake shop images and the sentiments. Your card is so amazing. Thanks for sharing the tip sheet. - Hussena, pop me a message on Fb or an email at claire.brennan1@ntlworld.com with your addy and I'll get your sparkly bits out to you!! Thank you to all who played along! I appreciate the comments!

Morning! You missed a great party at Stamp TV last night! Gina K released a whole bunch of new stamps and some of mine were in that mix! This card features one of my newest sets, Petite Patisserie! I am in love with this little cake shop! I'm in love with cake shops generally, and my current fave is Le Petit Parisien, a great little place in Wicklow St, Dublin, Ireland. If you are curious, you can see them here. I try to call in here for a cuppa if I'm in Dublin, which should be way more often...

The stamp set is a brand new set, available in clear photopolymer from Gina K's store here. This image shows you all of the stamps in the set:


For my card above, which I shared at the party last night, I used the main shop image. I stamped the image a few times on separate pieces of cardstock and then coloured with copics. I trimmed out the window shapes with a craft knife and then popped the matching cake stand and chandelier in behind the openings, I love the depth this gives. I also stamped the Patisserie sign and trimmed that out, popping it up on the roof. I was really chuffed with this set and I have loads more samples to show you. Pop by over the next couple of days to see!


Inside my card I added a simple panel. I used the larger of the cake stand images and added the interior sentiment underneath it. I love colouring those little croissants and buns and doughnuts! The delicate font choices suit my idea of fine dining...lol!


Just for inspiration, I made up this tip sheet - it shows a few examples of how the stamps from the set can be arranged to give nice little scenes, I really hope you like it! The store stamp is shown in black and all the other little co-ordinating stamps in orange. You can achieve these looks with simple stamping and/or a combination of simple masking or layering by trimming images out. There are FOUR different 'shop signs, so you could have yourself a little street! My current fave is the itty bitty curtains, check out the Caffetteria below!


I'd love to know what you think, so shoot me a comment on this post and I will pick a random winner on Sunday night to win a prize...lemme see, what can I give you....(rummaging in a drawer...) ah yes - how about some shiny things, I have some pretty sequins here left over from WMS - I will pop out 5 little baggies of sequins to one random commenter. It could be any combination of coloured sequins or maybe some shaker mix (pictured below) if I can find it!
