Gelato Cupcakes

Today I’m sharing a card I made almost a full year ago when I attended the Sunshine Crop hosted by The Sunshine Foundation. It was a fun event with 50 creative ladies who came together and spent 12+ hours crafting. I did a demo on Gelatos for The Paperie while I was there, and this card was the result of the demo…

I used a technique I saw online by Damask Love, where she scribbled Gelatos across a piece of paper and then used a baby wipe to blend. Although this card was made a year ago, this still remains one of my favourite ways to create a fast and effective background for a card.

I’m one of those nuts who actually loves to fussy cut so I don’t have very many stamp & die combos. What drew me to this one in particular is that the shapes can also work on their own without the stamps, a big bonus in my books. I have a little weakness for cupcake stamps and this is one set I could not resist.

Happy Labour Day, I hope to pop in here a little more often with cards that are much more current… we’ll see how it goes!
