ARE TEAMING UP THE ENTIRE MONTH OF JUNE TO BRING YOU AN AMAZING CREATIVE COLLABORATION MIXING DREAMWEAVER STENCILS AND ART GLITTER. COME ALONG FOR THE RIDE...WE PROMISE IT WILL BE A SPARKLING ONE!
Have you noticed how many cupcake shops are popping up all around? Within a 10 minute drive, I have my choice of Sprinkles, Kara's Cupcakes, Nothing Bundt Cakes (love this name) and, the latest addition, SusieCakes. So it was a no-brainer that I chose LL551 Cupcakes for the last double glitter card of the month.
If you've been following along this month, I'm sure you could do this technique in your sleep. For the newbies, here we go:
Adhere one side of the double-sided mounting paper (MPDS) to card stock, leaving the protective covering on the top side until you are ready to position your stencil. Rub the back side of the stencil with Handmade Hawaiian Coconut Soap (DHHS), making sure to cover the entire stencil. This will keep the stencil from making a tight bond with the adhesive. Carefully brush the soap "crumbs" from the stencil openings, making sure not to bend the stencil. Remove the protective paper from the double sided mounting paper and position your stencil, soap side down.
Use removable tape or blue painter's tape to mask off all but the chocolate kiss, cherry and candle. I used Art Glitter's #58 Brown for the chocolate kiss, #119 Cranberry for the cherry and #93 Lemone and #97 Nirvana for the candle and flame. Apply glitter using a cut off straw as a scoop and rub in with your finger. Tap of excess and return to jar. For the frostings I used #95 Summer Sea, #215 Wild Rose and #87 Hot Kiss. #90 Melone was used for the cupcake bases.
Place the glittered image, stencil side down, on a flat surface and begin removing the card stock. Be sure to keep the stencil flat against your work surface, moving or "walking" your fingers along the stencil as you peel back the card stock so that the stencil always remains flat and does not bend. Apply #86 Angel Dust to the exposed areas and rub in with your finger. Trim the image, adhere to coordinating solid or patterned paper and you're done!
