Birthday Donuts with Skipping Stones Designs

Today, I am using the Donuts #5153 stamp set from Skipping Stones Design to create this cute birthday card.


I did some masking to create the stacked donut cake. I then colored it with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers. Then, placed the donuts on the cake stand and embellishment it with Nuvo drops - to add dimension to the sprinkles. I also added a doily to create my table. Stamped the sentiment onto vellum and adhered it.

Thank you for stopping by I can't wait to see your cards using the Donuts # 5153 Stamp Set.

I am so honored to be Guest Designing for Kindred Stamps this month and to be a part of the November Stamp release. I was given the Christmas Chaos set to play with - boy did I have a blast with this set. 

Below are the three cards I created with the Christmas Chaos Set. 

This first card reflects that one family member that just drives you crazy during the holidays. But deep, deep, down you truly love them and you know it just wouldn't be the same without them.


I created this cute shaker card using the Christmas Chaos set (the RV, lights and sentiment are not part of the set - I hand drew the RV), I colored the images with Spectrum Noir markers, added Wink of Stella to the lights, Gelly Roll gel pen in White & Silver for highlights, along with some Deco-Arts Snow to finish the scene  I used die cuts to finish my scene.

How about some eggnog for the holiday season?

I created this card using the Christmas Chaos set, along with some other stamps from my stash. Colored the images with Spectrum Noir markers, added Gelly Roll gel pen in White & Silver for highlights, Glossy accents on the Moose Mug.


We all have one in the family, the lights obsessed person or maybe it's a neighbor that just has to light up the entire neighborhood - even if they can't get all the lights untangled. 

I created this card using the Christmas Chaos set, along with lights from another stamp set from my stash. Colored the images with Spectrum Noir markers, added Wink of Stella to the lights, Gelly Roll gel pen in White & Silver for highlights, along with some Deco-Arts Snow to finish the scene

Now, remember All you have to do, in order to win, is to visit the following blogs and comment on the posts! Easy Peasy!
