LOC Cake Party!

Welcome to the Layers of Colors big Cake Decorating Party!
It is my last week as Guest designer for Layers of Colors and I have had a great month!
To make sure that I did go out with a big bang I decided to make a couple of cake slice boxes, and before I knew it, it ended up with a fabolous cake party blog hop!
If you came from Graces blog you are on the right track!

These boxes were a lot of fun to make. I have used the Joiful Noise Set and the Merci Buoquet set.

I used the Joiful Noise set for my top decorations.

On the side I used the Merci Bouquet stampset.

I filled it up with yellow and pink roses, a stick pin and a metal butterfly. In between the roses there are small blue pearls. Over it all I have spun some gold tread.

I also used the Merci Bouquet on the end of the slice. Then I made this haning charm from some beads I have in my stack and topped it of with a little white bow.

But You know, I am getting marrid in a months time - so I kind of needed a wedding cake - right? Even though it is going to be a small and quiet wedding a girl is in title to have a three tire wedding cake!

Layers of Colors wedding cake!

For my bottom tire I have used the Merci Bouquet stamp set.
I have distressed all egdes with Distress ink Vintage Photo.

As top decoration I have stamped both the small and the big flower from the Nature walk set and cut them out. Added some stickles to the egdes and glued them togheter with a pearl in centre.

I think that these little flowers from the Merci Bouqet set is gorgeous!

My second tire has a butterflyflavor.

I have used the Belle brocade art stencil on the top of each slice. then on every other I have stamped a butterfly from the Flutterscent set and added some fluffy string around it.  On the end I have stamped the leaf from the Merci Bouquet set.

On my top tire I have used the smalest flower from the Merci Bouquet set, both on the back and on top. 
My top decorations are made of the biggest butterfly from the Flutterscent set. 

So, now I am ready to get married!

I am sorry for the bad photos, but this was one difficult cake to photograph! 

If you want to join us that would be great fun! Here is the template I have used for my cakes.  I know that Laura has a little givaway going today. She just became a grandmother. 
Congratulations Laura - little Landon is so sweet!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
I now say thank you to Laura for giving me this opportunity to be Guest Designer for her gorgeous line of stamps. 
The next stop on our bloghop is Guro.

Hei kjære datter.
Jeg gleder meg til bryllupet og ikke minst til kaken. Den kommer til å få hedersplassen. Håper den "smaker" like godt som den ser ut. Kaken var festlig.
Klem Mamma

Guro said...

Wow Gunn, dette er jo helt fantastisk! For en utrolig flott kake du har laget, bryllupet ditt blir en opplevelse uten tvil, og jeg ser for meg flere "doggybager" for å få med seg et stykke hjem :-)

Nydelig de to øverste stykkene også, utrolige å jobbe med disse flotte trykkene fra LOC.

Ha en herlig uke; og masse lykke til med videre forbredelser :-D
Hva var datoen deres igjen?

Blir litt lite hobby for meg om dagen, skriver på en vitenskapelig artikkel, som jeg skal publisere etterhvert, itilfelle jeg ikke får den doktorgraden jeg søker på!

Klem Guro
