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.
