More fun with this bundle!!  Check out this super cool 3D frosting for the Sweet Cupcake stamp set.  Sara Douglass, the CEO of Stampin' Up! demonstrated this card at a recent event.  She used a mixture of glue, reinker, corn starch and water to create the amazing 3D frosting - recipe is below.

Sweet_cupcake3

Here's a closeup of the frosting, how cool does that look!!  This stamp set is a three step set so the first two images were stamped using our Classic Ink pads and the third image had this mixture spread on the stamp and then stamped as the top layer creating this wonderful 3D effect!  Clean your stamp right after using it with the 3D frosting.

Sweet_cupcake5Here is the recipe for the frosting:

1/4 C Corn Starch
1 T white acrylic paint
1 T Multipurpose Liquid Glue
10+ drops of reinker of your choice
Add water for consistency a few drops at a time

Cupcake_angiel
To create this card, I started with the Banner Triple Punch to flag the end of the strip of Designer Series Paper and add it to the Crumb Cake layer.

Use the layering Squares Framelits (scroll down to download and print a file with all the sizes our our three new sets of Layering Framelits) to die cut a 3" scallop square from Whisper White. Ink the dots mage in Pool Party and stamp where shown (they will be behind the cupcake). Add this layer to the piece of Pool Party with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Ink the #3 cupcake paper stamp in Crumb Cake and stamp onto a Whisper White scrap, Ink the #2 cupcake paper stamp in Crumb Cake and stamp it over the #3 image. Lastly, ink image #1 in Soft Suede, stamp off once onto scratch paper and then over the other two images. Die cut with the coordinating framelit and adhere to the Whisper White layer.

Cupcake1_angielInk the #3 frosting stamp in Pool Party and stamp onto a Whisper White scrap. Ink the #2 frosting stamp in Pool Party and then the #1 stamp in Bermuda Bay stamped off once. Add Wink of Stella in Clear all over the frosting. Allow to dry and then die cut with the coordinating framelit and add to the Whisper White layer with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Ink your greeting with Bermuda Bay and stamp on a scrap of Whisper White, crop it with the Classic Label Punch and adhere it where shown with halved pieces of Stampin' Dimensionals.
Crop swirly image from a scrap of Crumb Cake and add to the card with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen.  Adhere completed layer to the main card base.

Measurements:
Crumb Cake - 8-1/2” x 5-1/2”, 4” x 5-1/4”, long scrap
Diagonal stripe Crumb Cake DSP - 2” x 5-1/4” before punching
Pool Party - 3-1/8” x 3-1/8”
Whisper White - 3-1/4" x 3-1/4", scraps for cupcake liner, frosting and greeting

VIDEO - Diagonal Gate Fold Card

Another video for you guys, this one will show you how to make this fun fold card.  I am not really sure what it is called, I looked around a bit but couldn't find it anywhere so I am calling it the Diagonal Gate Fold Card.

I received one in a swap a few months ago and just had to show you guys how to do it.  The one I received was pretty manly so I made one with the kiddos in mind.  This card uses the Foxy Friends set and A Little Foxy DSP Stack.

Four Alternate Projects with the June Paper Pumpkin Kit

One of the best things about Paper Pumpkin is the flexibility to get creative with the included supplies.

I added the Washi Tape over the white stripes on one of the cards and came up with this.  I also added the sequins and White Baker's Twine.  This looks sort of manly to me so I think I will save it for my husband of his father, they both have birthdays coming up in the next month.

Banner_surprise_washi

Use the gold stickers on the card front and stamp directly on the cellophane bag with our Archival Inks. This card uses just one cellophane bag (wrapped around the card front) so you can save the bags for another project, like a bigger banner.

Pp_june_alternates_2-(1)

This next card has us all starry-eyed! Grab your Big Shot, Star Framelits, Whisper White Cardstock, and some of the new Foam Adhesive Strips to create an adorable shaker card. A Gold Binder Clip perfectly complements the gold confetti. And the stamps add a fun, splattered effect.

Pp_june_alternates_1

Pull in a few supplies like the Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper, Basic Black Baker’s Twine, and the new Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies to create a bold card that is sure to brighten anyone’s birthday. Again, we love the splattered effect and the color combination is so on point!
