Can you believe that it’s August already? That means there’s a new Stamp of The Month over at The Stamps of Life! This month, the stamp set is called donuts2stamp and it’s so delicious! It also has a fun coordinating die set that will be available to all non-club members on the 20th of this month.
How cute it this set?! I love the option to either stamp a large or a small donut and the sprinkles are such a great embellishment.
My first example that I’d like to show you is a single layered card that I achieved from simply masking, stamping and coloring. The masking took a little bit of time and I did have to try it twice before I got a design similar to what I was looking for.
Here’s a quick photo tutorial that shows you how to mask and stamp. It’s a little bit tedious to fussy cut the donuts, but not difficult.
I colored my donuts with Copic Sketch Markers. I used the following colors:
Chocolate Icing: E25, E27, E47, E49; Light Donut Bottoms: E41, E31, E55, E57; Dark Donut Bottoms: E71, E77, E79; White Icing: 0, C00, C0, C2; Pink Icing: RV000, RV00, RV11, RV13
For my second card, I used only the diecuts and some ink pads to create my donuts. The cute base of the card was diecut using the Sizzix Triple Square Flip-its Card Die Set on white cardstock. I used the SOL Darling Collection Patterned Paper for the panels. This is one of my favorite patterned paper pads. There are so many soft and beautiful patterns to choose from.
I tied a pink ribbon to one of the front panels of the card and added a tag with a stamped sentiment using the Sizzix Tags & Words Stamps & Dies Set. For the inside sentiment, I diecut a stitched oval and used one of the sentiments from the donuts2stamp stamp set.
I really love the look of ink blending on die cuts. It adds so much more dimension to your project and with a little practice and light hand, it’s not a hard look to achieve.
If you look at the photo above, I first diecut my pieces, added my ink, pieced everything together and was done!
I again used my Copic Sketch Markers to color this. The colors that I used are as follows:
Chocolate Icing: E74, E77, E79; Donut Bottom: E41, E31, E55, E57; Beige Part on Coffee Cup: E81, E42, E43; Green Part on Coffee Cup: YG61, YG63, YG67; Coffee Cup Lid: 0, W0, W1, W3
I will be entering this card into the following challenge:
