Denise's Valentine's Day Cake Inspiration and TWO 25.00 Gift Certificate Giveaways!



The wonderful Denise Phillips of Bird Nuts Mixed Media has created another fabulous cake for you as well as a few other inspiring projects! In celebration of Valentine's Day and sharing the love, we are BOTH having a giveaway on our blogs for a $25.00 Retro Cafe Art Gallery Gift Certificate! SO you have two chances to win! Before we get to the giveaways, let's check out Denise's lovely pieces!


Denise used several Retro Cafe Art Gallery products to make her amazing Valentine's Day cake including Paper Mache  Boxes, Incredi-tape and sheets (to attach her papers), German Dresden (Fancy Silver Scalloped), Red German Glass Glitter, Silver German Glass Glitter, Stand-Up Bus Stop Lady, a Large Broken Heart, and Black Alpha Beads.


The topper is my favorite part! I love how she used the Large Broken Heart and Bus Stop Lady. Seriously brilliant!


Denise also created 2 projects usig the MEGA Circle Shrine Kit. Rather than making one shrine, she opted to use the pieces in another way! For the shrine above she used 2 of the shrine pieces along with Bus Stop Lady, Red German Glass GlitterWhite Alpha Beads, Black Alpha Beads, Mini Bottle Caps (SO fun how she used them!), Silver Stickles, and the Small Heart Background Stencil (my favorite part!).


She cleverly displayed her shrine on a Clear Acrylic ATC Stand (not just for ATCs as you can see!).


Denise used the third piece of her MEGA Circle Shrine Kit to create this lovely work of art. It's a recycled CD case! So cool how the case is also the stand! She also used White Alpha Beads, Black Alpha Beads, and a 3" Distressed White Metal Heart.


Thank you Denise for the awesome love day inspiration! We have some love for YOU too in the form of TWO giveaways!

    I ADORE the way she is "enshrined" in bottle caps!
