Welcome to the Create Inspiration Team’s February Party!
Spring is in the air, friends! After a LONG winter, our area finally surpassed the 40 degree mark. Pretty soon, the crocus and daffodils will be blooming and I can’t wait! In honor of this “spring fever,” I put together a project that is perfect for your next Spring celebration:
These darling cupcake toppers are from Carina Gardner’s Fresh Picked Spring Stamp Collection. Here’s a close-up of each design:
Ready to make your own hybrid cupcake toppers using digital elements from Jessica’s Shoppe and traditional scrapbooking supplies? Follow these simple steps:
- Open each stamp in PSE.
- Use the “Fill Layer” option to select what color you would like the image to be.
- Drag each of these shapes onto a new 8.5 x 11-inch document.
- With the grid function on, size each circle to fit a 1-3/4th inch circle punch.
- Print your stamps.
- Cut out each shape using a 1-3/4th inch circle punch.
- Edge your stamped shape with glue and sprinkle with glitter.
- Add embellishments to the center (rhinestones, punched flowers, etc..)
- Cut out a scalloped shape from a piece of scrapbooking or digital paper. (I printed digital files from the Happy Spring Mega Paper Pack.)
- Layer your stamped element onto your scalloped circle shape and adhere.
- Tape your finished topper to a toothpick or a lollipop stick.
- Add your beautiful design to a delicious cupcake!
If you need a refresher on how to edge your paper with glue and glitter, see this POST or this TUTORIAL. For my center embellishments, I used a combination of shamrock, heart, cupcake, and flower punches. There are so many crafting possibilities– 4 little hearts punched on green paper, for instance, transform into a shamrock! Likewise, I added a little bling to the top of the cupcake candle by adhering a simple clear rhinestone.
Wouldn’t the shamrock toppers be festive for a St. Pat’s Day celebration? Pair them with this DIY digital print using supplies from Jessica’s Shoppe and you’ve got instant party decor!
