How to use the Stampin' UP! Big Shot

Sweet Cupcake card with "frosting"!

 

Stampable Frosting... I really don't know what else to call it.. but the minute I saw Sara Douglass demo this on stage at our Stampin' Up! event last April, I knew I needed to try this Sweet Cupcake stamp set and her frosting recipe!!  Mix up the ingredients per the recipe in the photo in this blog post, spread some on a clear block or plastic lid, then stamp your frosting stamp into it and you have stampable frosting to stamp onto your project!!

I stamped this adorable card with Cindee and I put the stampable frosting only on the middle cupcake above.  The other 2 are just regular ink.  See my photo tip below for stamping this 3-step frosting stamp!

We saw this basic card layout idea online somewhere (Pinterest probably) and decided we needed to make our own version of this card.  I made chocolate and vanilla cupcakes with strawberry frosting :)

 TIP: clean your block and stamp right away when done stamping.. since this has paint and glue in it, you don't want it to dry on your stamp!

Below: spread some of the "frosting" mixture onto a clear block and use it to ink your stamp, then stamp onto your paper!

Below: this is my preferred method for stamping the cupcake images... stamp the most solid image in the lightest color and add the other images on top.  You can also stamp it "dark to light".. either way seems to work well with this stamp.

You don't have to add the frosting recipe layer.. you can just stamp the 3 images as shown in step 1, 2, 3.  If you want to add the frosting recipe layer, go ahead and stamp that over the stamped (ink) images.

For the final touch on this delicious card, we added some Clear Wink of Stella glimmer pen to the frosting part of each cupcake... so pretty in person!!

We stamped the cupcake and frosting directly on the Whisper White cardstock for the left and right cupcakes, then stamped the center one onto a scrap of Whisper White and die cut it out with the Cupcake Cutouts framelits.  It's mounted onto the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.

The sweet die cut is found in the Cupcake Cutouts framelits set as well!

I am in awe over the icing recipe to stamp the cupcake. That is just awesome. I do,, however, like your own cupcake equally as well. I just never would have guessed that you could make an icing to stamp with. You are sweeter than a cupcake, Patty, for always having such wonderful examples, tips and ideas.
Thank you for sharing.

Best wishes,
Karren

Oh me oh my Patty, these cup cakes look absolutely delicious! Thanks for sharing your photos and explanations of how you created these. Now I'll have to add this bundle to my wish list! Have a lovely week. Cheers Donna Z :)

Good morning Patty, I LOVE this card. I never dreamed you could make a frosting for the cupcakes. I just have to try it.I wasn't planning on buying this set, but guess what,,,LOL..... Thanks for sharing all your cards and giving us all these wonderful tips.. BTW, How long does it take for the frosting to dry???? Have a great day.

Patty Bennett

The frosting only took about 5 minutes to dry... and as I mentioned in the blog post, be sure to wash it off your stamp and block quickly because since it does dry fast and contains paint and glue, you don't want it drying on your stamp :)

Love both the chocolate and vanilla liners! So perfect!

Tara

My frosting seems to get into the cracks of the stamp and then not stamp clearly. What am I doing wrong.
