Cards Made Stamping with Texture Paste

I wasn't able to go to "On Stage" but I watched the sesson on Line.
One of the techniques demonstrated was stamping with a form of texture paste - made using corn starch, white acrylic paint, tombo glue ad a bit of water (recipe at bottom of post) This paste could be coloured with reinkers, but I chose not to do that.


I first stamped 3 tops of the cupcake from the Sprinkles of Life stamp set using Black Memento ink, I thought  this stamp set was retired but that is not the case, and it is in the new catalogue. The images were punched out using the Tree Builder punch.  The paste will be stamped onto these images.

Using a wooden stick, the paste was applied directly to the stamp , after which the paste covered stamp was stamped directly  onto the punched out image. When the punchie was peeled off the stamp, the paste left behind an icing-like image.

 Important: Clean with soap, water and a gentle brush immediately  (before the paste dries and ruins the stamp)

Searching my cupboards I found some edible cupcake sprinkles, and sprinkled them over the paste covered punchies.  I was a bit worred that the colors would run, but that did not happen. Ideally, these should have been allowed to dry over night, but I was in a hurry. So, I elected to gently dry the paste covered images using the lowest setting of the heating tool. A Calypso coral cherry was placed on the top of each cupcake.


After stamping the cupcake holders  with Crumb Cake ink they were and hand cut and the edges sponged, then attached to a piece of Whisper White cardstock with dimensionals.

The pasted tops were then adhered to the top of the cupcake holders with dimensionals.

The sentiment is stamped below the middle cupcake.

Before adhering the image panel to the Calypso Coral layer, a piece of Crushed Curry thick Baker's twine was wrapped around it and tied it into a bow.

Supplies Used: 
Stamp Sprinkle of Life
