Cupcakes are the sweetest. When you’re at the bakery, don’t you just love the assortment of colours, flavours, shapes and sizes these sugary treats come in? Eat one and straight to the hips it goes!
Luckily, with this stamp set, I don’t have to worry about the calories. I can stamp them in all the flavours that I like. It also gives me inspiration in real-life baking when I stamp a colour combination that I like (tee-hee, I can stamp my cake and bake it too!).
So what else do I love about this treasure of a stamp set? I love that they are photopolymer, meaning I can see through the stamps and I can align and build up the colour by layering each one perfectly. Since I have a Big Shot machine, I also love the option of purchasing the dies so I can cut out the shapes without a hitch. Check them out at the online store:
This stamp set involves a technique called 2-step stamping. It simply means, the stamp set comes with layering elements so you can build up the colour that you like. Stamp a colour in it’s varying shades from the lightest to darkest. Not quite sure how to do this? Why not attend Coffee & 2- Step Stamping and get introduced to this easy but fabulous technique? I promise you’ll come out an expert after the 2-hour class.
