Donut You Know? with My Creative Time

Hello Sweeties, and happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and Mother’s Day! This week I am super excited to be joining in on the fun over at My Creative Time for their 43rd Edition release. Today is day one of sneak peeks, and I think you all are going to love this month’s release, celebrating all things sweet and birthday in honor of Emma’s birthday month.

This is the adorable new We’re Better Together stamp set and coordinating dies. Dontcha love that fun coffee cup and donut and puny sentiment? Just makes me smile, and as a huge lover of all things coffee (and donuts, of course), this new set is right up my alley.

I paired the new We’re Better Together set with the previously released Bunch of Fun Circle dies to create a cute watercolor shabby shaped card. So quick and easy to do, and a really fun alternative to the standard card base.

I used Distress inks to watercolor the background in one of my all-time favorite color combos, blue and brown, and then pulled out an older My Mind’s Eye 6×6 paper pad to match. The scalloped circular frame was die cut from the patterned paper using the two largest Bunch of Fun Circle dies nested. The coffee cup and donut were then paper pieced from complementary prints. Blue frosting? You betcha!

I added some shading to the coffee cup with a very light wash of watercolor Distress. The patterned paper is thin, but with a gentle touch you can add color without warping. The donut was more heavily inked using an ink blending tool, and then stippled with water droplets. I coated the frosting die cut with several layers of clear embossing powder, after stamping with the coordinating sprinkles stamp. Love that bit of frosting shine.

The coffee cup is perfect to go with the donut and I like the idea to use embossing instead of glossy for the frosting…great idea and much faster…it looks wonderful. Great job on your guest spot!
