Cupcake Icing

I make no secret of the fact that I adore Daisy Mae Designs Stamps, especially the Faraway Forest Collection and the earlier stamps. I love the animal ones. These are mostly out of stock everywhere now but I did manage to get my hands on a couple of used ones off ebay.

Here is my first card made with one of them

There is a video on my YouTube Channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner

Cardmaking Tutorial 
I begun by stamping the image in Rustic brown and colouring with my spectrum Noir markers. I tried to apply all that I learnt in my last marker class and added folds to the icing bag 

Using the Time for Tea Die I cut a border in the teal green card
A stitched rectangle die was used on the red card
These were assembled onto a cream card base

The sugar and spice sentiment was heat embossed in blue Glitz onto Kraft card and the luggage tag die used to cut it's out. 
It was finished with twine and added to the left corner

Nuvo drops were added to the remaining 3 corners

Inside a piece of red card was cut using the same stitched rectangle nesting die and the sentiment 'you are the icing on my cupcake' was heat embossed in the mint

This is being entered into the following challenges.
