St. Patrick’s Day is coming next month, and at our house it’s a fun day where we celebrate mostly with food! We die our milk green, cook green eggs and ham, and always have a yummy green dessert. This year, I’m thinking it’s going to be cupcakes. Who doesn’t love cupcakes, am I right?
And to dress up those cupcakes, I’ve got a fun idea for some St. Patrick’s Day stamped cupcake toppers featuring the CMYK Stamps + Inks
, and the We R Memory Keepers Acrylic Block Set
. I thought this CMYK layered stamp set
would be perfect for the holiday since it includes all the colors of the rainbow.
I started by stamping the design from the Hello CMYK Stamp Set
. These stamps have a cool pixelated look and work by layering the four basic colors together one on top of the other.
I substituted the “hello” sentiment in the middle with the “lucky” sentiment from another stamp set. I used some washi tape to cover the “hello” sentiment when inking the black layer of the design, and then removed the tape before stamping so the sentiment didn’t show up.
Once I finished stamping the toppers, I cut them out with the We R Memory Keepers Detail Scissors
, and then hot glued them onto some paper straws with the We R Memory Keepers USB Power Mini Glue Gun
. I love that this glue gun is portable since I don’t need to worry about connecting to an outlet. I simply used my phone charger–awesome!
What I love about the CMYK Stamp Sets is that they really are a statement piece on your craft projects. They’re perfect focal points and really don’t need much embellishment.
