Birthday Cupcake Sneak Peek Treat Purse


This is for today's COLOR CHALLENGE - Black Rose Artichoke. I did another treat purse for Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE - Treat Purse and doodled around the white layered scallop circle for this weeks OUR CREATIVE CORNER CHALLENGE - Doodling. These little treat purses are quick, easy and so cute. I ran my artichoke cs through the CB swiss dots folder. Punched out a black giga scallop circle and a white mega scallop circle which can be found at Treehouse Stamp Co. My main image was stamped in black brilliance then I attempted something I found on here several weeks ago and am just getting around to. Frosting/Snow. My main image was stamped in black brilliance then I attempted something I found on here several weeks ago and am just getting around to. Frosting/Snow. You can view the video tutorial on Donna's Blog at BUTTERNUTSAGE TUTORIALS, thanks Donna. She really has some great tutorials. I don't think it turned out quite as I expected but you mix equal amts of plain flour and salt then enough water to make a glue consistancy. Dry with the heating tool from the back then the front and it it suppose to bubble up. I am not sure if I put too much on the icing part or what but man talk about top heavy, LOL. Anyway I am ok with how it turned out I guess. My image and sentiment are from a new set being released Friday from TREEHOUSE STAMP COMPANY. I used the MS dripping border punch with rose red cs to simulate drippy icing. Hope you like it

Hi again, I commented in split coast about your frosting I love how your card came out! I am concerned about the "heaviness" though. This technique should not be haevy at all just light and airy! I have a feeling you may have used too much. There should be all air behind the frosting. We use this technique a lot in class for various cards. I have mailed the ballons one with no problem and they are quite hard when finished. Try using less batter and more heat for a longer period of time to allow it to rise. It takes very little batter to accomplish the effect! Good luck. Your first try is phenomenal!!!!!~Donna
