Cupcake Card Workshop

The workshop and scrap day up at Inde-Scrap-Able! in Sandy was a HUGE hit!
There were 17 spaces sold for the workshop. Two were unable to attend but took card kits home. I think everyone had a good time and walked away with 4 fun birthday cards for only $7.

The first card took some time to complete. That was because we had to wait for the stamps and inks to pass around the room. Fortunately, that was the only card I had not prestamped in advance. I figured everyone would want to play with CTMH's fabulous stamps -- the My Acrylix make it SO EASY to stamp.

Here are the cards we made:

Products used are all CTMH except white ribbon on the first card.

I designed each of the cards using the basic layout from CTMH's ORIGINAL's Card Sketch book.

Card 1 -- stamped with Hollyhock wrapper and Creme Brulee frosting with Hollyhock sprinkles onto cardstock. Stamped extra Hollyhock wrapper onto regular printer paper and accordian folded on the white lines.

Using either Liquid Glass or the CTMH 2 way glue pens -- apply glue. If using Liquid Glass sprinkle Prisma Glitter while adhesive is still wet. If you are using a 2 way glue pen allow the glue to dry. Stick your finger into the Prisma Glitter and rub it around the glue. This method uses less glitter.

Edges of the card were inked with black to make it POP some what. Cardstock pieces were all sanded. Used a white brad to hold on the little HAPPY BIRTHDAY tag.

Paper is Daydream paper packet and Lilac Mist cardstock.

Card 2 -- stamped Chocolate ink for wrapper, masked it off and stamped Tulip frosting with chocolate sprinkles. The image is cut out and pop dotted onto white cardstock which is edged in chocolate ink.

The top corner of the card is just dog eared over so you see the pattern on the back of the paper (B&T Duos means there are patterns on both sides of the paper). Colonial White brad on the dog ear.

Paper is Perfect Day paper packet and Chocolate Cardstock.

Card 3 -- stamped Barn Red ink for wrapper, masked it off and stamped Twilight ink in 2nd generation for frosting and Barn Red sprinkles. Image is cut out and glued flat onto the Black cardstock.

Cardstocks are sanded. Three Antique Copper Brads used.

Papers are Sarsparilla paper packet with Barn Red, Twilight and Black cardstocks.

Card 4 -- stamped Chocolate ink for wrapper, masked it off and used Twilight in second generation with Vineyard Berry sprinkles. Image is cut out and pop dotted off the card.

White strip in the center of the card is a 12"x1/2" strip of White Daisy cardstock. Spritz with water and scrunch it up. Applied a bead of Liquid Glass across the card. Stick down each end of the cardstock strip first then scrunch the center to fit. It gives the appearance of a gathered ribbon.

Papers are Emporium paper packet with Vineyard Berry, Chocolate and White Daisy cardstocks.
