Cake Anyone?

On my recent day out with Sarn, we went to Camden Lock in London. On our way back to Euston, we stopped off to meet Sarn's hubby Gra at the National History Museum in Holburn. Of course, Holburn is also home to Blade Rubber Stamps, so we popped in there on route and I bought these gorgeous Hero Arts Stamps - Cup Cakes. Aren't they gorgeous! I love them so much and each card I make with them makes me HUNGRY! Ha Ha Ha

I made this card using the masking technique (all the cup cakes are on one level rather than decoupaged) i.e. stamp the image you require onto card, then stamp it again onto a post-it. Cut out the post-it image and then stick it over the top of the original image you stamped. Once you have masked it, you can then add as many other items as you want around it. I stamped the left and right cupcakes first and then masked them and then added the big cupcake at the back, and because they are clear stamps, the masking technique is even simpler, because you can see exactly where your stamped image is going to go. This was a really simple card to make, but I wanted to jazz it up a little so I added clear glaze to the left and right cupcakes and then added 'sprinkles' on top. Yummy!
