Frosty Cupcakes!!

Hi Everyone, Sorry my blog posts have been a bit sporadic lately, but things finally seem to settling into a routine now, so I hope to be again posting regularly.

I made this birthday card for a very special friend, Shelley (whose favourite colour is also pink). I was having fun experimenting with the new Imagine cartridges,  and for this card I chose to use "Imagine Yummy” - check out the gorgeous colours and swirls of the images on this card.


I have used only the Core-dinations white cardstock for all the images below. This card prints and cuts beautifully with the Imagine. Isn’t the “happy birthday” paper gorgeous?


I’d also like to show you this really cool technique I heard about last year with SU. To achieve a look of real frosting on the cupcake, simply cover the area with Tombow multi liquid glue, leaving uneven swirls as you go.


Liberally cover the glue with embossing powder. You could use any colour, eg brown for chocolate frosting, but because my image was already pink, I used clear powder with some glitter mixed in.


You then heat emboss until it bubbles up, let the bubbles settle, and heat again. You may need to repeat this a few times until all the glue has dried.


Real frosting…. What do you think?


I added my two layers to the base image using foam dots to add extra dimension.


These flourishes and gifts were all cut at 1″ – and glittered accordingly.


And the sentiment was also cut at 1″, base image only, with a little bling added.


I hope you have found this useful – and enjoy making some yummy frosting.

And now that I've whet your appetite, Mandy at Scrappy-Go-Lucky has 30% off all Imagine cartridges for 2 days only. Don't miss out.

    I am going to have to try this 'icing' technique. It makes such a great texture.
