Sweet Cake Valentine

I thought I'd better get a smooch on and make a Valentines card or two. My excuse was the new colour challenge from CAS Colours & Sketches, where our new hostess for February is Stef. She's chosen these really pretty colours, perfect for the occasion and my inspiration for what to do with the colours came from CAS On Sunday where they have a technique challenge - paper piecing.

 You might recognise this one, Sweet Cake. It's an old, retired SU stamp but I still think it's got mileage in it and I thought it would look really good with paper piecing.

Of course, I've kept it really CAS on a white card base. I used three different papers plus the melon mambo card and ink. When I needed a cherry on the top I used my cupcake builder punch, it matches perfectly.


  1. Great paper piecing, the stamp reminds me of an old radiogram. Super CAS card.

  2. LOL, yes I see Jane's point. It's gloriously old fashioned somehow. A really fun card. Liz x

  3. I really like how you've pieced the rays behind that yummy-looking cupcake! It's a terrific way to show that a valentine doesn't necessarily need to have a heart on it! :) Great job, Louise!


Thanks for leaving a comment. I love reading them all!
