Macaron Madness

Dear Crafters,

Well, today I have a very yummy and delicious looking card that I created as part of a challenge with our SU team. Some very worthy demonstrators got to experience the Mediterranean Cruise in May and then extended their time in Paris. This photo of the macaron tower was in a shop window in Paris and wow, who wouldn’t take a photo of it, it’s a beauty! So when Claire returned, she challenged our team to create a project using this photo as inspiration.  I immediately knew what I was going to create!!!!

Macaron Inspiration challenge by Claire D

Using the Build a Birthday & Balloon Builder stamp sets, I began by stamping the cake stand, then layering up my Macarons one by one. Then I added a layer of double sided tape and sprinkled over some gold glitter to create the layers in between.

I added the clear Wink of Stella to the centre of each macaron, I’m not sure if you can see that in the photo?

I loved this card so much, I decided to make another one using the bigger stamps from the same Balloon Builder stamp set. Who said you had to make balloons? I love to think outside the box!!!!

This time I used made some Peekaboo Peach, Mint Macaron and Sweet Sugarplum macarons!!!! They look so good I could eat them.
