Studio Stampers February Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to My Paper Paradise and to the Studio Stampers February blog hop. I do hope you will join us on a hop full of Amuse Studio goodness.

I needed a quickie birthday card earlier in the week, and the new Amuse Studio colours and the hey, cupcake set just called my name.


And here's a close up of the frosting - what do you say?  Good enough to eat?


To get the wonderful frosting, I first applied a layer of Le Pouf, and, although the instructions say leave to dry for 8 hours, I didn't have time so I heat set it immediately and them sprinkled it with diamond glitter while it was still warm. (NOTE: if you do it this way, the Le Pouf can still be wet inside even when it poufs up - just don't smush it and you'll be fine).

Can you see the 'halo' effect around the flame - that's really easy to achieve with the quickie glue pen, just draw a circle of dots where you want the glitter and add glitter.  It's not your traditional glue pen, more like writing with a nice gel pen.


That's all from me, I do hope you enjoyed your visit, next stop on the hop is the very talented Kathy Hatze I can't wait to see what she has in store for us for us. Here is the complete in case you get lost on the way.  Happy hopping!

I really like grapefruit and pistachio together. Great reminder that Le Pouf needs 8 hours to dry even after being heat set.

Super Cute, Karen! I've been on the fence with this set but since I always need so many last minute birthday cards, I might break down and get it.

LOVEly little card, Karen! I've been holding off getting stuff from the new catalog - I'm such a junkie! But seeing your creations is tempting me. (:
