Tie-Dye Cupcakes

 

Inspired by the rock and roll technique, I decided to try something just a little different for a friend’s birthday card – and it resulted in a really cool, almost tie-dye effect on the cupcakes:

To create this effect on the cupcakes, first I stamped in Baja Breeze and then coloured in around the edges of the cupcakes with my Really Rust Stampin’ Write Marker

I love this combination of Really Rust, Baja Breeze and Creamy Caramel.  It is one of those colour combos that could be for boy or girl.  I’ve used my favourite birthday stampset – Party Hearty and added a Baja Breeze button with a thin strip of Creamy Caramel as the “thread”. 

Tie a piece of Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon as the final embellishment and you’re done!  If you are looking for a really versatile ribbon option this has to be the one! – I find it coordinates well with Really Rust, all the reds, pinks, and looks extra great withPacific Point.

  1. Hi Jan.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a commenton my Blog. I’m fairly new to Stampin’ Up! too. I joined just over a year ago & let me tell you, I love it! I mainly joined so I could have easier access to their fantastic products & my projects are usually are made for personal reasons.

    I, too, have had a look through your Blog & from what I have seen I have no doubt that your SU business will be a success. I’ll defintely be back for regular ‘visits’ – ha ha!

    Thank you also for adding my Blog to your list of favourites. Just one little thing, my surname has been mistyped.Trust me, it happens often. It should read Karadimos.

    Well, best of luck!

    Andrea
