Clearly Besotted | With Sprinkles

Good Morning everyone, 

Today I've got a collection of cards that I made using an excellent stamp set from Clearly Besotted called With Sprinkles. I love the doughnut trend and thought these sentiments were adorable, so I had to have it.

The papers I used as my backgrounds were just papers from my 6"x6" paper pad stash, I couldn't tell you where they were all from off the top of my head but if you would like to know then just ask!

To give the donuts they're shine I stamped them out using a selection of Hero Arts Shadow inks and then went over the icing part using glossy accents and left them to dry. Next time what I might try to do is add actual sprinkles to the glossy accents as it's drying. Not sure whether that would work or not :P

To create my main focus panel I cut some circles out of white card using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Circle Dies and stamped a variety of the sentiments onto them using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I then adhered the doughnuts into them using foam pads and did the same thing to the circle panel. 

The full stamp set can be seen below:

Hope you like these cards and I will talk to you soon!

You are kind of amazing, just sayin'.

Hello there! 

I've been attempting to use some of my pre-coloured images and decided to revisit the gorgeous Wplus 9 set, Unforgettable. 

This card came together pretty quickly, I used some scraps I had in my stash from the Avery Elle paper pads The Bright Collection & The Sorbet Collection and created a background using these by layering them up.

I cut a white tag using the Pretty Pink Posh Die Stitched Duo 3 and stamped the greeting onto it using Memento Tuxedo black ink. I adhered the little watercoloured elephant onto the tag using a foam pad and then did the same to the tag and stuck it onto the card.

I'm quite enjoying trying to use up all my bits and pieces. I'm attempting to use up what I ahe already before I start using my new supplies. I figure that I'm so eager to start using my new stuff that it'll push me to use my older stash. We'll see though :P

Thanks for reading and hope you have a great day!
