Wednesday’s Card: Festive Cupcake

Festive Cupcake

Festive Cupcake

It’s Wednesday again!!

I was in the mood for something fun this week. I love to use cupcakes for birthday cards and I LOVE to use polka dots on birthday cards. Not sure what it is about polka dots – they just make you feel good. However, I did realize that I don’t have enough cupcake stamps. I need to buy some new ones… ah! A reason to place another scrap booty order!!

Anyway, I used the Marvy liquid applique again, this time in pink. Isn’t it so cool? I used it on this very same cupcake awhile back. This time I added some glass glitter from Stampin’ Up!. It’s very chunky, so it made a nice cupcake sprinkle. You need to sprinkle before you heat it up or it won’t stick.


SONG: “Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough” by Michael Jackson. I know he’s controversial, but I LOVE MJ music. I include at least one song in every Zumba class I teach. It just makes you want to move, doesn’t it?

    I have to say this icing is one of my favs! I love the way it comes out and gives the card that finishing touch.

    Darlene I love watching your videos. I wish we coud have more. I am surprised that most of the stamps you use I already have so I go back and do one similar to yours. This is a great card and I can’t wait to see the next one.

    I love that pink liquid applique. I’m glad to say it’s also available over here, I always get frustrated when products are used which I cannot buy. I love the card.

    Great card! I usually use a baby wipe to get the ink off the embossing (I keep a bin with baby wipes in my craft room). ;D

    Wonderful creation, Darlene! Just as all of your cards are 🙂 Where do you buy Marvy Liquid Applique? I looked at Michaels and JoAnn, but couldn’t find it.

      Thank you Julia! I bought the Marvy Liquid at a rubber stamping convention in town. If you have a specialty scrapbook store near you, try there. Otherwise, I would search for it online.

      Stampin’ Up! still sells glitter (dazzling diamonds, gold, and silver), but the chunky stuff is no longer available. Sorry!
