Hey Stampin’ Buds! It’s Becca with my last post for Sous Chef Saturday. As promised last week, I’m showing you a couple more ways to combine the Sugar Rush Cardmaking Bundle (stamps plus coordinating Thin Cuts) and the Here for You Workshop Your Way (WYW).
My first card uses the “glaze” or “frosting” part of the donuts from Sugar Rush as flowers. I stamped them in Pixie and then stamped both of the circle scribble flowers from Here for You in Poppy over the top. (Because the coordinating die cut from Sugar Rush Cardmaking cuts out the center, I didn’t use it. I hand cut instead.) I didn’t worry about the center dots having two layers of stamping which is why they have a heavier concentration of color. The remainder of the flowers and greenery are from the Here For You WYW. Gold sequins finishes it off with some bling. The woodgrain paper from Rustic Fundaments is 4.25 x 4.25 and was glued over the top of a 4.5 x 4.5 card base cut from White Daisy cardstock.
I started with a 4×5.25 panel of white cardstock and die cut “happy” out of it. I took the larger leftover piece and sponged it with Cranberry Ink before stamping “Mickey.” Since the stamps have dotted centers, I carefully inked around the edges and avoided the middle. (Of course, I made a boo-boo over on the right side, so I added black enamel dots over the top to disguise it. Thank goodness those dots come in the WYW!)
I glued the Cranberry panel over top of a black card base, fit the “happy” back inside, then topped it with the banner. Both the banner and “Birthday” come from the Sugar Rush Cardmaking Bundle.
Thank you for letting me be a part of your Saturdays for the past few months. I hope I’ve inspired you with several ideas you can put into practice. I hope you will join me over at my blog, too, so I’ll close with my customary salutation…
Until next time,
