Cake is the answer…who cares what the question is?

Today’s post features the stamp set, Piece of Cake, which is scheduled to retire the day before Stampin’ Up’s 2020-2021 Annual Catalog launches on June 3rd. Look at the Last Chance Products page in the Stampin’ Up store to see what else is retiring. The items on this list are available until June 2nd or until supplies run out.

Piece of Cake coordinates with the Cake Builder Punch, which eliminates the need for fussy cutting if you want to pop up the images from the card. The set features multiple kinds of cakes such as birthday, wedding, plain, decorated, etc. so you’re not limited to just making birthday cards with this one.

Here are two cards I recently made with this set:

The base of this wedding card is a silver foil-edged card, which also comes in gold. The card bases come with coordinating envelopes. Right now, the silver ones are sold out, but the gold are still available.

The next card is a more masculine birthday card featuring the Country Club Designer Series paper, also slated for retirement. Golf is on my list of least interesting sports, but this set of paper has some amazing argyle prints on the reverse sides.

Retirement Party

Over the next few weeks my blog posts will feature Stampin’ Up products scheduled to retire when Stampin’ Up’s 2020-2021 Annual Catalog launches on June 3rd. Look at the Last Chance Products page in the Stampin’ Up store to see what else is retiring. The items on this list are available until June 2nd or when supplies run out.

Today’s projects feature the 2018-2020 In Color collection and the Celebrate with Cake stamp set found in the 2019 Beginner Brochure.

(Note: some of these cards use retired products. Don’t let that stop you from coming up with a version of your own though!)

The 2018-2020 In Color collection featured vibrant colors that I think are well suited to the playfulness of the Celebrate with Cake stamp set. (Lovely Lipstick was my favorite from this group.)

I love the little bird and his hat from this stamp set. The bird and the hat are two separate stamps, so you can stamp the hat in a different color (or not at all).

I based this card off several versions of the hearts flying from the mailbox theme I saw online.

This final card features the flowers. The stems and flowers are on different stamps for easy separation of color. The set is clear photopolymer so it’s easy to line up the separate images.
