Addicted to CAS #79

Hello Blog friends and welcome back to the first challenge
of 2016 over at Addicted to CAS

This one is being hosted by our talented teamie Jaydee who has
chosen the Code Word: Cake - well who can resist that one!!!
Even if we have over indulged over the festive season!

We have our first Guest Designer for 2016 too
Elizabeth Stewart 
our talented winner of challenge #76 (Hero) - I'm sure you'll 
want to take a look at her stunning designs HERE

... and there's plenty of stunning cakes, created by my clever teamies
 over on the main blog HERE so if you haven't already done so - please hop on over!

Here's mine ...

This one uses a mish mash of products from some of my favourite companies!
Clearly Besotted: All Occasion Cupcakes, Uniko: Balloon Bash & All Occasion 
Seniments #6 and Mama Elephant: Carnival Cupcakes with the images 
watercoloured using Distress Inks.

Our generous sponsor for this one, offering a prize of $10 to spend in store, is 

It's a birthday theme over at Time Out challenges 

Birthdays with the optional Technique Twist of adding sponging.

I've used minimal sponging to the icing on the cake but thought I'd
hop across there with this card. Their sponsor is Uniko and having used 
a couple of their sets on my card it would be rude not to! 

I hope you feel inspired to play along and I can't wait to see what you 
come up with for this one! I'm sure it won't be good for my diet motivation!!!

Thanks as always for stopping by and I'll catch up with you again soon.



  1. I love this touch of sponging it works so well for icing. Great colour combo and fab to see you at TO

  2. OMG, what a color combo, Sarah! And coloring! And sweet bear! Totally adore this sweet card.

  3. This is adorable, and what a fun cue word. I need to get over there and play--only decision is which of my many cakes shall I stamp. Yours is sweet and delicious--you are quite the baker. Thanks so much for playing along at Time Out.

  4. Beautiful watercoloring on your cupcake and I love all of your gold embossed accents! Love your color combo, too! Such a pretty card, Sarah!

  5. Sarah, this is so sweet! I love your colour combo and outstanding icing colouring ;)

  6. Great cake and superb colour combination. :-)
    Have a nice week,

  7. Love the shiny gold and the way you colored the cupcake...very cute!

  8. Fun card! Love the delicate sponging!
    Thank you for taking some TIME OUT and joining us again!

  9. Adorable ombre cake :) All the glitter and star and cupcake all come together

  10. Oh wow. That icing looks just perfect. Love your work Sarah. x Carolyn

  11. Gorgeous! Love those colors :) the ombre pink looks so cool!

  12. Hi Sarah,

    Oh oh OH - the glittery tag on the top is so fun!!!

    I also like the "ombre" coloring using distress inks for your graphic, it is so soft and lovely.

  13. Sarah, love the cold on chocolate stamping - it's so striking and your image is adorable. Hope you are all OK after the dreadful storms you had in December! Thanks for rocking my challenge
