Another post today ;). At work, we’ll be celebrating my boss’ birthday today (his actual b-day is tomorrow)!!! We’re going to be taking him to lunch and giving him his gift. Exciting! So, I wanted to do a quick share of the decorations I made to go on his cupcakes (I made him triple chocolate chip with cream cheese frosting). I love how hey came out. Super simple, but super fun! I'm entering it into Wee Memories Challenge #57:
Their challenge this time around is stamping. So here is my entry:
I started by punching a large scalloped circles out of October Afternoon’s Thrift Shop paper. Then I went to town stamping music notes (a la “Happy Birthday to you”) using Lawn Fawn’s Teeny Tiny Backdrops in Jenni Bowlin’s Cough Syrup (a purty red) onto white cardstock. Next, I punched put 1" circles and used a mini blending tool to ink the edges.
It was my 1st time trying those mini blenders & I really liked them!!! I got that tip from Kathy’s Blog “The Daily Marker”. You use it just like the Ink Blending Tool - just on a smaller scale. It’s cool because I matched the ink from the stamped image and edges of the circles perfectly ;).
Anywho, so then I used more pretty OA paper and I stamped the banner & sentiment using Lawn Fawn’s “Bannerific” and “Sophie’s Sentiments” and glued it all together adding a toothpick between the scallops and circles to stick them into the cupcakes ;).
Eh, just a little something. I had fun doing it too. I always have fun when I’m stamping with my Lawn Fawn Stamps ;). Hope you have an awesome rest of the d
