Funky Colored Lacquer Cakes!

Each year I participate in the Jerry Lewis Telethon and we raise funds at our store The Stamp Addict by having an 'Opportunity Drawing' for a basket of great goodies and by holding several classes where all of the class fees go to the MDA. This year I am holding a class on Aug. 12th (call the store if you want to sign up to take the class) and when I was designing the class I wanted to use the Sakura Hobby Craft colored crystal lacquers for at least one of the cards in the class. I came across some Funky outline stickers of wonderful crazy cakes and thought they would be perfect to showcase the lacquers.

I took each of the cake stickers and put them on different colors of shimmer papers, then the fun began!

I filled in many of the spaces with different colors of the pearl, metallic, glitter and colored crystal lacquers and let them dry....

The hardest part is to not touch them until they have time to dry! After they dried I layered each piece onto white cardstock and used some decorative corner punches to add something extra to the cards.

If you come to the class on Aug. 12 (you can call the store to reserve your spot) you will get to choose one of these six cards to make along with 4 other cards using other techniques!

The Coffee Cup Card:

The Wedding Cake Card:

The Flower Cake Card:

The Butterfly/Flower Cake Card:

The Funky Floral Cake Card:

And the Manly Tie Cake Card:

I hope you liked the cards and enjoy the technique! Come see me on Aug. 12th to try the technique yourself and raise some money for a great cause the Muscular Dystrophy Association!
