What's Up Cupcake?


Yesterday, I created this card using the "Cupcake Sprinkles" stamp set from CTMH. The paper is, also, from CTMH and is called "Daydream". I gave this set to my good friend Jackie for her birthday and she asked me how to use it. So, I searched the CTMH Board for ideas. This adorable card design was created by Vicki W. She used Sculpting Foam for her frosing. I used Liquid Appliqe. To get that creamy looking frosting, I stamped the image in a light colored ink, cut it out and applied Liquid Applique. While it was setting I sprinkled on glitter and let it set over night. In the morning, when it was dry, I took my paper piercer and poked holes in it and inseted brads. I then attached it with popdots. So, here is your card Jackie. Liquid Applique comes in different colors, so you could have chocolate frosting, strawberry frosting or any other that is your favorite. I ,also, thought of adding real sprinkles to the frosting. When I thought of the idea last night, it was too late. The Liquid Applique was already set. I will have to try that next time.
