Faux Frosting Birthday and Happy Moments

All you girls who came to last month's Technique Night, see what I did with our sample!!!  This card was "kinda" copied right out of the Stampin' Success magazine that we demonstrators get!  We made the 3x3 card shown in the magazine at Technique Night but I took mine apart and used the same colors and design for a full sized card.

The stamped images are from the Happy Moments stamp set which can be found in the Sale A Bration catalog.  The set is FREE with any $50 purchase through the end of March.  (And it is TOO CUTE - so don't miss it!)

 Here’s how to frost your creations:

1 Mix Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter with your choice of Stampin’ Emboss powder. Use a one-to-one ratio, or if you prefer less sparkle, use two parts embossing powder to one part glitter. The best way to mix these is to shake them in a bag. Stirring doesn’t work as well because the glitter is lighter than the embossing powder and will end up on top.

2 Stamp and prepare your project. Then apply Tombow Multi Purpose Adhesive to the area you want to frost. Leave some texture as you apply the Tombow so it mimics the look of real frosting. We spread ours using a circular motion.

3 Sprinkle your secret powdered mixture over the frosted area.

4 Shake off excess powder.

5 Heat set as you would any embossed image. When the frosting starts to bubble, stop and let the bubbles go down. Then heat set again
to make sure the adhesive is completely dry.
