People Who Leave A Great Impression On Us

Thursday, January 5, 2012

Well, Hello There Cupcake!

Happy Thursday!

Angi here, aka Mistress of Mayhem, known to a precious few as MoM (4 in particular)...I'm sure more than a few of you can relate at this time of year as the holidays wind down and we get back to the (hopefully) less hectic pace of

It's day 5 of 2012, my kiddos are back in school and I have a wonderful feeling it's going to be a GREAT year of crafting!

I don't know about you, but I can never have too many cards and Great Impressions' December Stamp of the Month stamps hit that sweet spot! When I first saw the images, I naturally thought 'birthday.' After playing with the stamps I realized these stamps aren't just for birthdays; there are so many adorable and usable images...cupcakes, cocoa/tea/coffee cups, candles, balloons, and more.

Lots of celebration inspiration!

With Valentine's Day on the way, you could easily whip up a few of these with a little prep work. The frame is heat embossed in white and the cupcakes are simply stamped and 'water' colored using ink and a water brush.

Want to add that special touch? Get out the liquid appliqué and your favorite glitter and frost those cupcakes! You won't believe the difference this little detail will make... If you'd like more detailed instructions and pictures of this and other Great Impressions projects I've made visit my blog here.
