Thanks Tui you! Cupcake

(Simple birthday thanks, Sweet little sentiments-SU!)
When I first saw this stamp, I wasn't sure how much I'd use it. But once I realized I could omit the "thankyou" message inside, it has become a great versatile birthday cupcake (stay tuned for other great ways to use it!).

Anyway my first idea was to just glitter the frosting, and at the time I was going to make dozens of them for my swaps but somehow after making the first one I looked like the milky way!
I wanted the look of frosting, but wanted to steer away from using soo much glitter. It needed something, but I was stuck until I saw what Tui did here. Brilliant! Why didn't I think of that?!

So I outlined the frosting and filled it in with crystal effects. then placed the beads while it was still wet. After it had dried I decided the cherry needed bling, and again using the crystal effects filled it in and sprinkled on the glitter.

Be sure to check out Tui's blog, you won't be disappointed!

(The card base and frosting is Pixie pink. Pink Passion stampin pad, Parisian breeze DSP background and Raspberry Tart DSP which has been crimped)

  1. Aww geez Yvonne .... what a lovely rap, how very sweet of you!!! But your creations are just wonderful pieces of art work themselves ... oh how I love that cherry .... it really makes the whole cupcake "pop", and that is exactly what cherries do to real cupcakes, they just add that little bit extra to make you reach out and "bite" ... thanks again and well done to you!!!
