JustRite's, It's Hip to be Square, Blog Hop!

I always love when it is blog hop day......because the DT just rocks out with some fabulous projects! The talent just never ceases to amaze me!

I am loving all the new sets that JR has come out with, especially the Just a Note Borders and Centers set. When I saw the Make a Wish stamp, a birthday cake came immediately to mind. I decided to make a big ole' birthday cake complete with frosting and candles! The cake was cut using my Cricut and the "From my Kitchen," cartridge. I embossed the cake plate for added texture. I added frosting with texture paste and glitter. (Can't have a card without glitter, now can we?) I stamped the image and border separately and cut them out with my circle Spellbinders. The center image was airbrushed with my Copics. I added the candles and bows to finish it off.


Here is the blog hoppin' list.......you don't want to miss any of these projects!!!
