Yummy Gel-a Tins Cupcake Card

17 Nov

I thought that since last week when I used the set  Sweet Cakes, I had used Shrink Film and the cupcakes were tiny.

So this week, I am using the stamps full size.

I decided to use coordinating papers from Authentique Paper – Fair Weather collection.

I love using un-usual prints for things like cupcake card.  I think it gives the card lots of personality when I use non-traditional types colors/prints for something like cupcakes.

To describe briefly how I made this, let me start with the background.

I used an embossing folder on the white paper first, then I used gold ink here and there and used clear embossing powder to make the embossing shine.

After those steps were done, I sprayed some Tattered Angels on it and let it dry.

I then attached my ribbon and did the sewing around the edge.

For the cupcakes, I stamped them on different patterned papers, cut them out and adhered them to the gray paper.  I had already distressed the gray paper and cut them to size.

I then adhered all the cupcakes to the card front, and embellished the cupcakes with dimensional glaze, glass beads and that  sparkly white powder.

The final step was the phrase.  It did not fit in the frame, so I stamped it again and went outside the frame as shown.

I hope you like this card as much as I do.  It is fun to come with different techniques to use on cards and I always enjoy sharing a tip or two.

I am enjoying working with Gel-a-Tins, they are simply wonderful!

Sweet Stamps Lots of Layers Challenge

18 Oct

It is Tuesday and you know what that means?  A new challenge is up at Sweet Stamps blog.

Our challenge this time around is all about layers.

Lots Of Layers.

My inspiration for my layers was this lovely ribbon I had.

I made my layers by layering paper in all the colors in the ribbon.

I used a sentiment stamp from Sweet Stamps called: Hope your Birthday

If you love that cupcake die, it is available at Sweet Stamps and is called:  160 Cupcake.

All in all I just love how this turned out and am so happy I had the Ribbon to inspire me.
