We’ve been taking note of a new trend…DONUTS!

Just looking at that picture is making my mouth water!

Introducing DONUT YOU KNOW stamp and Confetti Cuts dies…

DonutYouKnowProductGraphic

The DONUT YOU KNOW stamp set is full of cute, witty and sweet (of course) sentiments (and sprinkles!) that pair perfectly with the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set.

CCDonutYouKnowProductGraphic

This is a set of 6 Confetti Cuts dies: the donut base, the icing, the hole to cut the center of donut and frosting, as well as 3 different perfectly sized sprinkles.  You’ll be whipping up the cutest baker’s dozen in no time!  The best part?…no calories (and they’re super cute!).

My first card today features both the DONUT YOU KNOW stamp and Confetti Cuts die set together to make a sweet birthday card.  You could switch up the colors of the sprinkles to personalize it for a boy or girl…or even your recipient’s favorite team.

Creating these donuts is much easier than making real donuts.  Here’s the how to:

1. Cut the base of the donut with a hole in the center

2. Cut the icing, also with a hole in the center (lining up center holes, adhere to base)

3. Cut your sprinkles out and adhere to frosting

Of course, there are lots of ways to dress up your donuts!  I’ve had tons of fun playing around with different ways to create a variety of different frostings.

For this particular card, I used Ranger white enamel (that I’ve been hoarding for a few years now), along with a white and silver glitter mixture that I picked up at Michaels (there’s a pic of it a little ways down on this post).  I sprinkled the hearts and rectangular sprinkles in two different colors of pink to create the perfect (girly) confection.

And, as you may know, sprinkles tend to fall off here and there so I made a sprinkling of sprinkles around the donuts on the card.

The sentiment is stamped on the rounded rectangle from the CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die set and sewn on the card.

Notice anything else on this card that is new?  It’s subtle, but it’s there!

Introducing the new CIRCLE GARLAND Confetti Cuts…

On the card above, I layered it under my main image panel to give some dimension and detail without taking away from the focal panel.  I also used this Confetti Cuts die on the inside of my card that I peeked on Monday for the Caring Hearts Blog Hop.

My second project featuring the DONUT YOU KNOW stamps and Confetti Cuts is this sweet door hanger.  Our HANGING OUT Confetti Cuts door hanger die has been quite popular and it’s perfect for projects like this.  On this project, I used it in an upright manner.  It still fits perfectly on a door handle, or I could add it to a small bottle of milk…

What’s inside?  Real donuts, of course!

The scalloped edge detail was created by cutting a pink piece of cardstock with the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die.

I love this sentiment that plays on words!  It’s great for friends, teachers and neighbors!  I added the name using the LIGHTHEARTED LETTERS stamp set on the flag-ended panel from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set…

ElliesHanger3

For this frosting, I used t-shirt paint (!!), the glitter from Michaels that I mentioned above and some cute lil’ sequins…because some donuts need bling!

Here it is in the making…

My final project today is a tag cut from the TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts die set along with the new DONUT YOU KNOW stamps and Confetti Cuts…

For the icing on this donut, I used Diamond Glaze over the pink cardstock and then added my sprinkles.  Here’s pic that picks up on the how shiny the frosting is…

There is so much more inspiration to see using these stamps and dies that are releasing on November 8th!
