Marbled Cupcake Card
While getting ready to stamp the other day, my daughter (5 yrs) found a container full of marbles in our stamping room and asked me what they were for. I grabbed a Marina Mist Classic Re-Inker and showed her the rolling marbles technique. She was amazed and couldn't believe that marbles could do that. hehehe This is the card that I came up with after showing my daughter the rolling marble technique. I think this technique is perfect for cupcakes. I used the Build-A-Cupcake punch to make this card. Since I had some Bashful Blue and Marina Mist marbled card stock left over I made a second card so that I could have some cards on hand when I need them. I must get in the habit of making multiples. Another item I like to use when I make cupcake cards is the paper crimper. I tend to use that on the cupcake bottom.
Rolling Marble Technique
Take a plastic container big enough to place a fair size piece of card stock in it. Place a couple of drops of Classic Re-Inker inside the container. Place some marbles inside the container. Close the lid and shake the container back and forth. Open the lid and place your piece of card stock inside. Close the lid and shake the container back and forth again. Keep doing this until you are satisfied with the marbled effect on your card stock. Take card stock out and set aside. Clean the marbles and container and set aside until you want to do this technique again. This is a great technique for any stamping level. You will never get the same marbled look twice.
