After watching a CTMH video demonstrating the "front and back stamping" technique,
I gave it a whirl.
First I turned the stamp to the back side (flat side) and masked the top of the cupcake so that only the paper liner would show. I stamped this in Honey and the shape came out evenly covered.
Second, I cleaned the stamp, then turned it over to the front side, and stamped the entire cupcake shape with Lagoon ink. That allowed me to see the cupcake paper "pleats" and also the icing.
Then I added a few sparkles to the icing.
I also used:
For Always patterned paper, Honey paper, Honey ink on the birthday sentiment,
and Baker's Twine
I think this card turned out sweeeeet! It was fun trying something new too!
It was a fun way to begin the NEW year!
Happy New Year, and Happy Creating!
