A Cupcake made of...SEQUINS! :)

Well, it's official, I'm addicted to sequins. There, I've said it! I wish these little suckers didn't freak my camera out, this looks WAY cooler in real life! I used my Silhouette to cut out the cupcake shape. Then I lightly traced around it to make and outline for where I needed to make my sequin patterns. And then it was just a matter of mindless gluing for a few hours. :) I ♥ that part! Just turn on some tunes and glue. BUT here is a cautionary tale for you. If you have piles of sequins in front of you, and "Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay" comes on, hit mute. Do NOT whistle along with it. Ask me how I know. WHOOPS! But, I digress... I stamped the first layer with the Happy Definition background by Hero Arts. If you look closely, right above the cupcake it says "super yummy". I think this turned out super yummy! :)
I popped up the top layer to give the sequins room and create a "shadow". Finished by adding some pink sequins with bling centers. Hey, did I mention I ♥ sequins? HA ;)

Seriously, I wish the pictures would show how cool this looks in real life. Le sigh. 

Have a shiny day!
♥ Nikki ♥

Oh and check THIS out!!! :) Gotta love

  1. Too funny...don't whistle :o Have you mentioned where you get your sequins from? I remember where you were sorting them. What a super card...I love this idea and sequins look wonderful. When they came off my daughters dance dresses I would pick them up and save them :D I know I am so sick :( I knew they would come in handy some day. Great card!
