Carnival Cupcakes & Toppers with Torico

Hi Mama Elephant fans! It's Torico here for my guest Designer Series post.
First of all I'd like to say a big thank you to Kryssi for giving me this great opportunity to collaborate with you in designing stamp sets!

Today I'd like to show you how versatile the CARNIVAL CUPCAKES and CARNIVAL TOPPERS sets are.
These sets feature cupcakes and cupcake toppers, and you can mix and match the images in these sets to design your own cute cupcakes. But wait... look at those images carefully. The cupcakes are not only for cupcakes!


For my first card I created a baby mobile with a top part of cupcake, which was cut out using the Carnival Cupcake Creative Cuts, and a few tiny images from the Carnival Toppers set.


For the background I stamped a sentiment border from the Sentimental Borders set on vellum in white pigment ink. I used the Just Hatched set for my sentiments, which were also stamped on vellum.


For my second card I turned a cupcake wrapper from the Carnival Cupcakes set into a lamp shade. Can you guess what image I used for the light bulbs? -- Cherry!:)

And the top part of cupcake can be used as a mushroom cap!

  • Stamp a bunny and mask it. Then stamp a mushroom cap (I mean a top part of cupcake) and draw a stem with a gel pen.
  • Mask the mushroom cap too.

  • Remove the masks, color in the images (I used Copics for my coloring), and add the grassy ground. 

I decided to add some polka dots to the mushroom cap with a white gel pen. The sentiment is from the Up And Away.

I hope you enjoyed my cards. Thank you for stopping by!
