Cupcake/Cake Take a Long

This is another “Cupcake/cake Take a Long” that I did for our Stamp Club. We will be making these next Sunday when we meet. For this one I used the Tea Party DSP and the ribbon is the Sale-a-bration bundle (free). On this one I used the Sizzix Envelope die and part of the Scallop bag for the closure. Inside has the 3 test tubes you can put sprinkles in and don’t forget the frosting. (I didn’t take a photo of the frosting.)Click to see the photos up close. I almost forgot, I layered the flower from the DSP. 3 layers. Not a lot of stamping but still a fun project. This is the perfect give to give someone who has everything, but you still want to remember them on their special day. 

Easter Basket from the Envelope die

Isn’t this cute? You would never guess that you use the Sizzix Envelope die and cut 6 of them. Glue them together by the side pieces and add a piece of DSP around the entire basket. I also used the new Eyelet Border punch for the handle. The stamp set I used is A Good Egg. The DSP is Bella Birds.

Fifth Avenue Floral all a Glitter


I was so excited to order this new glitter in Chocolate, and to use with this stamp set. So I started out using my Embossing Buddy on Whisper White c/s. Then I stamped the flowers in Versamark and used Heat & Stick powder, heated the powder & sprinkled the ultra fine glitter and heated it up to set. But I couldn’t get all the excess glitter off of the card stock. I tried to use a Swiffer cloth, it stuck to the glitter, tried a stipple brush and I felt like I was taking all the glitter off. So I decided this was as good as it was going to get. Anyone have any other suggestions? If you click on each of the photos you will see what I’m talking about. Or am I just being to critical?
