Cupcakes & more cupcakes

Cupcakes are very popular at the moment so I asked CCTV member Tracey Doorbar to come up with some ideas using the Hero Arts Stamp.  True to form Tracey has come up with these amazing ideas proving just how versatile stamps can be!

Number 1 
          Plain & simple - even for the novice stamper.  Stamp in black ink such as Memories and then colour with your current favourite markers/medium.  Add some dimension by cutting extra swirly bits and adding a touch of diamond glaze or glossy accents.

Number 2
          Some fancy folding here but doesn't it look good!  It will also fold flat to go into your envelope.

Number 3
          I was really impressed with this bunting.  Such a clever idea that just lends itself to any celebratory occasion.

Number 4
         Tracey decided to make a card just using the elements of the cupcake stamp.  She has used the swirls to make the centres of the flowers.  The stripes on the paper case have become the border and so on.  Sometimes we have to "think outside the box" to get the most from products.

I do at the moment have cupcake stamps in the shop for sale.  Also you may have seen on the Website but on Friday and Saturday this coming weekend it is a simple "make and take" with Suzanne - where you will be able to make Mother's Day cards.  Hope to see you!
