Sparkly cupcake



Like so many of you I just LOVE cupcakes!!! What is it about them that make them so irresistable? I don't even like eating them much I just LOVE all of the stamps, towels, plates, clothes, etc. that come with cupcakes on them. They're adorable!

For this card I used the new cosmo sparkly colored glitter. I love this stuff! To do the top part of the cupcake I stamped it on whisper white cardstock with versamark. I poured heat and stick powder over it and heated it with my heat gun for a couple of seconds - just until you see a sheen cuz you don't want it to lose it's stickiness! Then pour the colored glitter over it. Tap off the excess and heat again for a few seconds to set it. Then I cut around the cupcake top and attached it with stampin' dimensionals. A great way to fancy up a card! I will warn you that the glitter clings everywhere. I found it helpful to rub my embossing buddy over the cardstock before stamping with versamark. The glitter still clings where you don't want it but not as much.

Recipe:

Stamps: Big Bold Birthday
Ink: Versamark, Chocolate Chip, Pixie Pink
Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Tempting Turquoise monochromatic designer paper, Chocolate Chip
Other: Versamark, Cosmo glitter(new from Stampin' Up!), heat gun, stampin' dimensionals, 5/8" chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon.

This is so awesome! I love cupcakes and yours is super nice. So, those glitters, they stick pretty good? I'm thinking of getting some but just afraid they might go all over the place even after you stick them on there good. Let me know!

I agree with you - cupcakes are too much fun! I've got my Cosmo glitter ordered - can't wait to get it. I always forget to use my embossing buddy, but you are right, it really does make a difference! Love the card - it is just Yummy!! :)
