Fe, Fi, Faux Fun!

Stampin' Up! Faux Frosting!
I had so much fun making this faux frosting for my cupcake! There is a product available called Liquid Applique that gives this puffy look to whatever you put it on. Fun flock is out there too. But I wanted to figure out how to do it using Stampin' Up! products. So after a little playing... I did it! So fun!
Begin by stamping your image onto your cardstock. I used Basic Black ink on More Mustard card stock.



Then I applied Crystal Effects to the frosting area of the cupcake!



Then I poured White Embossing Powder on top of the Crystal Effects.
It will look like this when you gently shake off the excess powder. Be sure to wipe away any stray powder that may be left on your card stock.

Now, grab your heat gun and give it a go! You can apply heat from the top or the bottom. So fun to see the "frosting" start to bubble! Careful not to cook your frosting too much.


Ta da!

So now I'm sure you are wanting to know what other embossing powder colors you can do this with! I tried clear embossing powder on my duck. Here's how she came out...

Not as fluffy as the white embossing powder, but it does give the duck a little texture and the illusion of feathers.
Alrighty! Go give it a try, and let me know what you come up with!
