Another cricut cake

I made this cute cake for my best friends little girls. They are twins. Can you tell? I used my cricut to create a border stencil and air brushed the sea horses around the cake. I also cut the palm trees from my cricut. I think this is one of  my favorite cakes so far. It was so fun to make.

Altered Art

Today I want to share a couple of altered frames that I made for a gift for my father-in-law. I love how they turned out. These are plain wooden frames that you can purchase at Michael's arts and craft store. First I  painted the frames. Then a piece of decorative cardstock was added to the front of the frame. After doing this I just embellished away!! I added chipboard pieces, rubons, and of course a little bling. I took a black ink pad and inked the edges for a more worn look on the wild thing frame. They are very easy to make and they make wonderful gifts.

Another cricut cake day.....

On this cake I used the cricut once again to create a stencil for air brushing. I air brushed the flowers on the corners of the cake and also alone the borders. In the center of each flower I just added a little yellow dot to dress it up. The flowers on the cake are not real (I pretty much stink at making flowers!). Airbrushing a stencil on a cake can add so much detail. If you don't have a cake airbrushing system, you can always use the cans of airbrush color they sell in the wilton cake department at most craft stores, it works just as good!

Cricut Cake

This week I am going to share with you a couple of cakes that I made using my cricut. On this one I used the die cut shapes to make the man in the boat and the fish. I also used the border feature to create a stencil to air brush the fish on the side.I used the lollipop sticks that come from the candy making department at Michaels and stuck the die cuts to them with a glue dot. (All die cuts and border were cut using the cricut) So easy and so cute
