Sugar and.........Spice Cake

Hi Everyone

Stampin Up currently has a new Summer Mini catalogue on the go (see pink catty pic on sidebar) and from the moment I saw these Fabrics and new DSP (Designer Series Paper) I knew I wanted to have a play with it and so I have. Some cards have been inspired by others and you will see credits accordingly.
Here is the collection I am working with....

DSP Spice Cake (             )

they come double-sided - 12 papers - of 6 double designs- as seen below

the collection also has a Fabric collection- 3 complimentry pieces- 
 and here is what I've come up with so far (yet to get into the fabric swatches, so call back another time for them too)

Schultz Family- Layout for the heritage album

 and a collection of cards, some which are inspired by other demos work, and credited accordingly.

Spice Cake of Cards

Autumn Spice - card

Spicy Flower Folding - card (inspired by here)

 and another- this one using the oval of the duo set of Designer Frames
(inspired by here)

this one a nice simple design and using a bit of Designer Spice Cake Fabric
(inspired by here)

 and for something a bit tricky- It is an interlocking circle card.  What that means is the circles on the front of the card actually "lock" the card and need to be "untwined" to open.
(inspired by here)

A bit of Autumn-like treasure using the Bigz L Die- CandyWrapper
- a nice little arrangement to store some goodies for a pressie or Hostess gift.

Well hopefully that will 'spice' up your mojo as those gone before I have done so in exploring the play with this lovely DSP - Spice Cake.
Have an awesome weekend doing what you love,

Enjoy - Ruthy xf
