So I got a fun package from the UPS man today. It was my order with some of the fun new products. I got the new cutter bee circle cutter and some new stuff for the big shot. Of course I just had to try it out. My son actually gave me the perfect opportunity. His Birthday is in the middle of summer when life is usually crazy so I told him we could have a 1/2 Birthday party instead. We are planning for Friday night so I made him these cute cards to invite his friends. His favorite color is blue so of course I had to use the in-color Pacific point. Plus I had to try out my new toys.
I really loved putting the texture on the Bold cupcakes. The frosting has the swirl plate and the cake has the polk-a-dot. Then I used the directly to paper technique to get a little ink on them and really make them pop. I loved how it turned out. I really loved using the circle cutter. It was so fast and easy. I can’t wait to try it for more projects.
I did learn that I need to cut out the items with the big shot and then run the texture on them otherwise the pressure of cutting it just smooths it back out again. Anyway I had lots of fun and my son loved them so I hope you like it too.
