I am so sorry this card is so late!! I start the cards with my YouTube upload, then I post to the blog. Well, we had a power outage in between and I couldn’t post it! The power was out all day and didn’t come on until dinnertime. Well, then soccer, kids, etc and now here I am at 9:45pm with a moment of peace with my computer.
When I started to think about the card for this week, I was drawing an absolute blank. I thought for sure that I had depleted all the creativity I was born with. Then I remembered that I had picked up this liquid applique paint pen at a stamp show about a month ago. The people at the show were marketing it as a way to create snow on a card. Then I thought about how cool it would look as frosting on a cupcake. Man, this pen is really, really cool!! You apply it by just squeezing the liquid out of the pen. When you heat it up, it bubbles and pops up. Like frosting. And snow. How do people come up with this stuff??
I experimented with putting beads on it (sprinkles!) before and after heating it up. Putting them on beforehand definitely worked better. Those beads are going no where.
I also used the only circle cutter I have, which has been discontinued. I am so bummed about it because it’s so easy to use. It’s the Provo Craft Coluzzle. You may be able to pick one up on eBay. It’s a swivel blade that you just put into a template and slide around – so simple!
