Life is Delicious!

That is pretty much my take, anyway. Life is delicious. And food is delicious. And you need food to live. Therefore, we are back to life being delicious! See how that works? (This is likely why I had to sign up for three fitness classes. For reals, though.)

I was recently sent these super cute Donut Die-namics and Donuts and Sprinkles stamp set to create something adorable. You guys, for REALS, these are so much fun!

I decided to create a good ol' Dunkin Donuts strawberry frosted with sprinkles. Because I am a Boston girl, what can I say? I die cut the donut base and then inked the edges to make it look real-ish. (Yes, that is totally a word. Don't argue with me.) I then die cut the frosting and cut the sprinkles OUT of the frosting.

A couple of things to mention here: 1. I LOVE that these dies allow for so much flexibility! You can seriously create awesome layers. 2. I am a lazy crafter. There was NO WAY I was going to glue on a gagillion (yup, that's a word, too) tiny sprinkles, so I used some ingenuity to get that same dimension with less work.

I cut the sprinkles from the frosting layer and then adhered it to the inked donut base. I then used Ranger Enamel Accents to fill in the sprinkle 'holes' the die had left on the donut. They look like REAL SPRINKLES, YOU GUYS!!!!

Sigh.

I do so love when something comes together. For the background, I stamped the Simon Says Stamp Wide Stripe first, allowing it to dry thoroughly before continuing. I then did a little stamp surgery to cut the sentiment apart, bent it to make it curved like a donut, and then stamped and embossed it on the background above and below where I planned to place my donut using my Fiskars Stamp Press. I popped the donut up with a bit of foam tape and ended up with a SUPER stinking cute card.

It makes me happy. And hungry. Iced coffee and a donut, anyone?

Have a Happy!
