Heart Punch Cupcake

Heart Punch Cupcake

Heart-Punch-Cupcake_KristieSloanIt’s my birthday and here is a no calorie cupcake just for you! Plus I wanted to show you this nifty way to use a heart punch or die cut.  Who knew you could make cupcake frosting out of hearts?

At least 3 punched or die cut hearts, 1 square.

Take your hearts and flip them with points at the top instead of the bottom and layer at least three of them.  The number you use will depend on how big your hearts are.

I sponged a pink colored ink onto the bottom of the hearts, starting outside the heart and dragging it to the inside. That way it gave more definition around the outer edges.  I liked it best with the sponge having less ink and being more dry.  I was able to better able to control the depth of the color, by layering it.

Heart-Punch-Cupcake-Kristie Sloan_1I layered and arranged the hearts and glued them to each other. I then used a 2-way glue pen and ran glue around the bottom edges of my “frosting” layers, and applied glitter.

I ran paper through the Big Shot in an embossing folder before I cut it into a 2″x2″ square, so that it had vertical lines to resemble a cupcake paper.  You could just as easily score lines for a similar effect.  Then I used the same sponging technique on this piece.

Simply adhere your square cupcake paper, and then your frosting hearts!

Next, I punched a small red circle and adhered it to the top of my frosting, and used Crystal Effects to give my “cherry” a shiny finish!Heart-Punch-Cupcake_KristieSloan_3

  1. Another great idea from you Kristie. I love how you think outside of the box. I am going to try this idea with my little one and make little cards for her class for Valentines Day!
