TCM March Release Preview Day 3: Take the Cake

Welcome to the 3rd day of our preview of 4 new stamp sets being released this month at The Craft's Meow, and to our continuing week-long celebration of our 2nd Birthday!  Today's set is called Take the Cake, designed by Nina B.  Here's my card for you today:

TCM March Take the Cake

I chose just one of the smaller images and one of the sentiments from this large set for this card.  I stamped the group of 3 roses repeatedly (using masking) to make an oval wreath, and then stamped a sentiment inside.  Then I colored them in with markers and added some pearls and gems to match.

I used just one of the "layers" that Nina has given us and made a 4-layer cake, stamping on 4 different colors of cardstock, cutting them out, then stacking them together on the cakestand and adding the adorable little birthday banner and the rose cluster.  Papers are from Graphic 45's Secret Garden Patterns and Solids paper pad.

If you haven't already, please visit The Craft's Meow blog to see what my team-mates and our March Guest Designer Stacey Schaefer did with this lovely stamp set.  I know you'll love seeing some of the other images and sentiments from it.  Leave a comment at The Craft's Meow blog by 8:00 PM PST tonight for a chance to win this new Take the Cake set!  In honor of TCM's birthday; Lisa will be giving away TWO of these sets to 2 lucky commenters there!  And please come back again tomorrow for a preview of the last of our new sets!
