On A Pedestal


on a pedestal


For the remainder of the month, I’ll be highlighting some of my favorite, can’t do without sets. Sadly, these sets are retiring  and I just hate to see them go! This set has some key images that work wonderfully with other sets, including Got Treats and Create a Cupcake which are remaining in the new catalog. I also think these bold image sets are great because they survive the outdated factor very well.


In deciding which sets I purchase, there are usually three factors that I look for and this set has them all.  First it has to be a versatile set, one that I can use for multiple occasions and themes. I also look for images that will stand the test of time,  as well as one that will work great with other sets that I own or plan to own.  I will occasionally buy a set just because it thrills me so, or it may fill a void in my collection while lacking one of these qualifiers, but this one was a no brainer. Plus it is a solid image which are my favorite images for quick and easy cards.


This card was very quick and easy. The cute paper is part of a collection from the new catalog appropriately called Just Add Cake, The ribbon is a retired stripe in Baja Breeze. I just stamped the image and then layered it on a piece of Baja Breeze with a scalloped border on one side.
