Cupcake Fun, Mini Tutorial and Color Throwdown
Cheesy title, I know, I just could get more creative this morning! I have moved my blog candy to a link in my side bar, if you haven't signed up already there is still time! I made this card using the new set Lori and Laurie created to celebrate CDS 5 years of business. It is such a cute fun set to use, you should check out the whole set at the store. It comes with alot of great stamps! Also I finally got to squeeze in a card for the Color Throwdown challenge which I love, their colors are always so inspiring. It is the first time I've actually gotten to play! I thought these colors would be great for this stamp. I'm also using this weeks sketch from SCS which I just noticed happened to be my teammate Dawn Burnworth's original Sketch. Yay, Dawn! I love it!
Everything was paper pieced this time, no painting at all. I did do some sponging to give the paper more depth. I took a few pictures to show you how I did the top of the cupcakes. I'm not sure you would call this a tutorial. But anyway, they were a lot of fun to do! And it looks so sparkly in real life, you can tell better if you enlarge the pictures.
What you would need is your stamped image, Scor Tape sheet, Glitter (I used doodlebug designs sugar coating In choclate)and bugle beads.Dark ink is better so you can see through the scor-tape.
stick the sheet over image and cut out. This is why dark works better. You can do any detail cutting after you pull off the top layer but it is harder because it sticks to the scissors.
Next you will stick your bugle beads were you want them.
Then you will pile on the glitter!
Wa La done. So easy I'm not sure it's really a tutorial but it was fun so just thought I would share!
