AUGUST COUNTDOWN for PaperTrey Ink
FALL ELEGANCE releasing Aug. 15 for only $24!!!
This stamp set features 28 images and has already become my favorite fall stamp set.
It's so hard to find a good stamp set for the fall season- and you stop your search here! As an update from yesterday's post: I mentioned that I am moving to Colorado. One of the many miracles of this move is that our house sold in 2.5 weeks. Praise God! So, as a kind gesture I decided to make a cake for our buyers. They are a lovely young couple, and I am really excited that this home will be a special part of their lives as it has been so special for me.
Bakery Band: I used one of the swirls in the set which was designed to seamlessly repeat which makes it perfect for backgrounds. So after stamping the background on the band, I just stamped, cut out, and popped up of the pumpkins. One top I made a label with my SLICE by making memories. (I love my slice! LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!) I have to admit that I did use PTI's awesome set Handwritten Notes to add the adorable sentiment. But it also features one of my favorite parts of the Fall Elegance stamp set... the elegant leaves with the swirls inside. I must say- I have been so impressed with the quality and clarity of this stamp set. PTI products are really the best! The details stamp perfectly every single time. It always comes out perfectly clear. Not to worry- you will see more of these beautiful leaves on tomorrow's blog post. Don't miss it! The projects only get cuter and cuter!
PS. I didn't mention my yummy cake! If you want an INCREDIBLE cake recipe... check this out! It's a Butter Pecan Cake... and seriously, it's one of the best cakes I have had.
BUTTER PECAN CAKE (aka "Your New Favorite Cake!")
Ingredients: Pecan Cake Mix, 1 can coconut pecan icing, 4 eggs, 2/3 cup oil, 1 cup milk
Mix all ingredients into bowl, spray bundt pan with cooking spray - and bake at 350 degrees for 45min. Let cool in pan then remove. (Yes, it's that's easy!)
A light drizzly frosting goes nice or I usually just sprinkle some powdered sugar and garnish it with berries. It's a fabulous recipe for fall.... but really I could eat it all year round! It's the perfect cake because you can always have the ingredients waiting in your pantry- then when you have a surprise guest drop by- you can whip up something amazing without running to the grocery store. Give it a try and let me know how you like it.
