Scor-pal and Clearsnap with Lori Williams

This week the DT's from Scor-Pal and Clearsnap have joined forces to bring you some amazing projects.  Be sure to check the Scor-Pal Blog and the Clearsnap Blog everyday for inspiration, and also to enter to win a Scor-pal!  Just leave comments this week on any of our Scor-pal posts, and we will choose a winner next week.

Hi Everyone, Lori here with you today.  I've seen cupcakes created for quite some time and I finally broke down and made one for myself, and must say I love it.  The tutorial for the cupcake was inspired from Miranda Edney's . 


You'll need your Scor-Pal for the base of the cupcake and 2 strips of designer paper 2 inches x 9 inches.  Score each of the strips every 1/4 inch and accordion fold.  Attach your two strips to make a circle and you have your base for the cupcake.  You can cover this over a cup for more support if you  need or want.  



For my flowers I used Cheery Lynn's daisy die and colored the base of the flowers with Clear Snaps Donna Salzars Mixed Media Chiffon Ink , leaving the very tips white.  


With a sponge dauber I colored the center of the petals with Donna Salzar's Berry Ink.  Once the flowers are glued together with the layers on each color the tips of the flowers with the Berry Ink too.  


The cupcake is completed by adding leaves and the flowers to the half of a Styrofoam ball with push pins and adding pearls to the center of each flower.
