Congratulations to Michelle who won our 3rd Pinny Party.
This was her copy cat project -
Michelle won $5 worth of ipaper!
My repin today comes from Teresa Jenkins
originally from Moey's Heart and Hearth
So come on...
You know you see something on Pinterest and think
"Oh WOW...I could do that...and it would look awesome,
and people would admire me near and far."
That is why I love these Pinny parties.
They humble me,
but hey...I still feel good about myself for trying.
Not like some people who just pin and pin and pin :D
But I digress.
Now for the humble part...
So, since our Pinny Parties require the use of paper,
you are now wondering - where's the
Here it is:
The reason why I thought that maybe I could even attempt
this project in the first place is that you TRACE!
Just size up a coloring page, or a digi stamp in this case
and tape it upside down to a piece of glass
(like take a piece of glass out of a picture frame)
then flip it over and tape a piece of wax paper to the other side.
So it goes:
(Keep in mind that the final product will be a reverse image)
Make sure you have a yummy cake.
You can cheat if you want to
like some people do and buy your cake from Costco.
Just cover the top with some white icing
and unassuming people will think that you are
Martha Frickin Stewart!
Next on to the drawing part.
Pipe the outline FIRST
and then color over that.
Do not follow my example.
Follow the expert example of the original pin.
See all those wormy lines?
Don't do it.
No, No, NO.
You will get a wormy elf. Ick.
Smooth it out or use a big icing tip.
Put your smooth, pretty icing artwork into the freezer
(check to make sure your glass picture frame will fit before you start)
and you will leave it there - glass and all - for about 15 minutes.
With incredible finesse and skill you will now flip it onto your cake.
It is frozen and hard, so aim well and pray.
Once that puppy has landed,
peel off the wax paper
and stand all amazed.
If it doesn't work,
you can always send it to cake wrecks.
One random winner gets a $5 gift certificate.
