Yummy Frosting...Oh My!

Hi Stampers....

I am back and got my pics all taken of my card that should have posted YESTERDAY...hubby's and their need for sleep...geeze - LOL!!!

Anyway here it Birthday Lulu with her super yummy paper pieced cupcake with my homemade paper "frosting"...

I made this for this week's Kraftin Kimmie Challenge to use paper piecing on your card. I paper pieced the cupcake wrapper and Lulu's party hat and dress. I used papers from the Simple Stories 6x6 paper pack - Baby Steps.

The color scheme works for the challenge at Polka Doodles....Ice Cream Colors. I love ice cream and I have lots of favorite flavors so it is hard to pick just one...
Neopolitan (cuz you get 3 flavors in one!) Chocolate (my base), Strawberry (frosting), Vanilla (main designer paper color)
Then once in a great while you just need pistachio which is sort of the greens in my papers...PLUS nothing goes better with ice cream than Cupcakes with Frosting!

My homemade "frosting" is a mixture of shaving cream and elmer's white glue mixed up so it is thick and goopy like melty half dried out cool whip and then I mixed re-inker drops in to color it. When it was thick and goopy enough I piled it on with my stir sick and then sprinkled pink chunk glitter on top and let it sit and dry overnight. It dries so it is a little puffy and the glitter stays on perfectly!

Here are some close ups, I was trying to capture the puffy frosting like texture, kinda hard to get so I hope you can see it ok....

I also did the "out of the box" technique for my circle piece. The layout is for this week's Mojo Monday Challenge #258.

Be sure that you check out HOLLY'S CARD from today...she also created an ADORABLE Kraftin Kimmie Paper Pieced creation!

Don't miss our DESIGN TEAM CALL either!  I am going to try and figure out how to make it a wish me luck :)

I am off to TRY and sleep since I have to report to work...not by choice... at 3am and work until exciting!

Happy Stampin All! Try the frosting technique and let me know what you think! Leave a link to your project so I can check it out :)
