Creative Ways to Use Border Dies to Make Fun Cupcakes!

 Hello Crafty Friends and welcome! I have a fun post for you today, along with a new YouTube video. I really love Karen Burniston's Cupcake Add-On die set. This is a great add-on die set that pairs with another one of my favorite die sets, the Landscape Rectangle Accordion! So, I decided to show you three different ways to use Karen Burniston's border dies along with the Cupcake Add-On!

For this blog post, I will not be explaining the steps taken to put the card base together, just the cupcakes and toppings. 

For my first set of cupcakes, I used the individual cupcakes just on their own in a birthday card, using Karen Burniston's Rockin' Rectangle die set. I also used Karen Burniston's Baking Borders to create fun cupcake toppers! 

For these cupcakes, I colored the frosting like Neapolitan ice cream! Chocolate, Strawberry and Vanilla. I used Simon Says Stamps Pawsitively Saturated Ink in Seafoam and Surf to create the cupcake wrapper. 

I then die cut the pie, cookies and mini cupcakes from heavy weight smooth white cardstock and colored them in with Copic markers. I show how I did this in my YouTube video, which is at the end of this blog post, so be sure to check it out, subscribe and give it a like!

For my next set of fun cupcakes, I went with an Easter theme. I used Karen Burniston's Easter Borders to create my cupcake toppers. 

I colored the icing and wrappers both using Copic markers. For one of the cupcakes I created a glaze over the top, which I show in my YouTube video. 

I die cut the border dies from heavy weight smooth white cardstock and colored them in with Copic markers as well. 

For my last set of fun cupcakes, I went with a summer/beach theme. This just shows you that these border dies, any border die, can make a wonderful cupcake topper!! I used Karen Burniston's Beach Borders to create these toppers.

For this card, I only used one set of cupcakes instead of two. I added some beach/summer themed add-ons to my card, including Karen Burniston's Tropical Scene die set and her Sea Animals

For this card, I used a Lawn Fawn stamp set to create my sentiments. This stamp set is called Pool Party. 

Be sure to check out the video below on how I made these fun cupcakes! Thank you so much for stopping by today and Happy Crafting!
