Celebrate Birthday Mug Cake with Pretty Pink Posh

Monday, February 27, 2023

Have you ever made a “mug cake” before? I thought it would be fun to make a shaker birthday mug cake and use all of the Pretty Pink Posh mug dies! I started with die cutting all of the pieces I needed from the different die sets in colored cardstock. I will add in some color to each of the images using Distress Oxide ink or my alcohol markers so there is some dimension to the pieces. Starting with colored cardstock and adding in ink is one of my favorite ways to have color without having to completely color a piece of white cardstock in ink.

To make the card extra festive, I used the Streamers Stencil to create a background. The “A” stencil was colored using Distress Oxides in Picked Raspberry, Carved Pumpkin, Squeezed Lemonade and Cracked Pistachio. The “B” stencil was colored using Platinum Stencil Butter - I love the mix of bright colors and silver together!

While the background was drying, I started assembling the shaker birthday mug cake together. The shaker bits are the adorable sprinkles from the Birthday Cake Clay Confetti. I also made my sentiment in silver foil with Hot Foil Large Celebrate and Large Celebrate Shadow Die. Once my background was dry, I assembled the card together and added a sparkly frame die cut using the A2 frame from Fancy Cake Dies. I hope you enjoy today’s video and that it brings you inspiration for using your Mug Dies all together - especially to create a fun shaker!
