How can you not create something sweet with Dyan’s new stamps! They are quite the delectable treat! Only downfall: After playing with these stamps you may want a treat yourself, like a chocolate cupcake maybe!!!
Step 1: On a sheet of Dylusions Mixed Media paper stamp the images shown from the stamp sets as follows:
Let Them Eat Cake = head
Eat Me = muffin and shoes
Drink Me = candy canes
*The small cupcake from Drink Me stamp set also gets used later if you would like to stamp that out now as well.
Step 2: Color your images with Dylusions Ink Spray. The colors used here are Postbox Red, Fresh Lime, Polished Jade, Vanilla Custard, Laidback Lilac and Balmy Night. Set aside to dry while working on the next step.
Step 3: Take a #10 Dylusions Journaling Tag and paint it with Dylusions Paint in Rose Quartz, Peony Blush and Bubblegum Pink. Here the paint is applied starting with the lightest on top and getting darker as you go down, like an ombre blend.
Step 4: Once the paint has dried, stamp a pattern on your background. Here we alternated using two different border strips; the candies and the cupcakes. This was stamped with Ranger Archival Ink in Rose Madder from the Letter It set.
Step 5: Getting back to our stamped images; cut the candy cane image as shown in the picture. This will work for the arms and legs.
Step 6: Glue them to the cupcake and shoes as shown.
Step 7: Piece your sweet lady together as shown making sure to not cover the hole on the tag.
Step 8: If you haven’t stamped that extra cupcake mentioned in step 1, do so now. Color it in with the Dylusions Ink Sprays. Attach a piece of Silk Sari Ribbon to the tag by tying it or by stapling. Then attach the other end of the ribbon to the cupcake with glue.
Step 9: Glue your Sweet Lady down onto your tag. Add extra colors and marks using the Dylusions Paint Pens. The white was used for the white parts of the candy canes; the black to enhance some of the lines and the Pure Sunshine and Bubblegum Pink for Sprinkles on the cupcakes.
I do hope you enjoyed the tutorial and have fun creating your own sweet treats!
