By The Tide Cupcakes

Ok, here is the last post showing you some of the items I made for my Retirement Party this past Sunday. Today I am going to share with you how I made these cute little By the Tide cupcake toppers for the treat table and my Bon Voyage banner.

I used the By the Tide stamp set (item 129117/129120) from the Spring Catalog to make these cute little toppers to keep in line with the Bon Voyage theme of the retirement party.

I stamped the anchor image using Night of Navy Classic Ink (item 126970) onto Whisper White card stock (item 100730). Punched out the image using my 3/4″ Circle Punch (item 119873) and attached this to a 1 1/4″ Scallop Circle Punch (item 127811)Night of Navy card stock (item 100867) piece.

I then layered that onto a Real Red card stock (item 100052) 1 3/8″ circle and finally onto a 1 3/4″ Scallop Circle (item 119854) Night of Navy piece.

Finally I added a dab of Liquid Adhesive (item 110755) to the back and added a toothpick and a second Night of Navy Scallop Circle to cover up the adhesive.

Here is a close up of the cupcake topper. How cute right?

And finally the banner – I really loved the way this turned out. I used My Digital Studio  along with the Travel Journey Digital Kit (item 121071) and World Traveler Photobook (item 130066) Digital Downloads to create the images and Designer Series Paper that I cut the letters out with using my Big Shot.

I took my Regals Designer Series Paper Stack (item 117154) and used the Night of Navy patterns and cut my paper into 4″ x 6″ pieces. I cut out the bottom triangles by finding the center, cutting up the middle to the point I wanted and then cutting in from both sides to that center mark. (hope that makes sense) Finally I attached the flags to some twine by punching holes in the two corners using my crop-a-dile and stringing the twine through. I tied bows on each end to finish it off.
