Okay…can we just acknowledge how over-the-top darling the new Sugar Rush products are? Hi there, Stampin’ Buds. It’s Becca with my Sous Chef Saturday post, so it only seems appropriate that it be all about food…donuts, to be precise.
These first two cards feature the Sugar Rush paper prominently.
Nothing earthshattering about how I made these. By mounting the very detailed paper on mattes, they became a focal point. The smallest, focal panel is 3″x 4.25″. The next matte out is 1/8″ larger each way. For the card on the bottom, I added one more panel measuring 4″x 5.25″ on top of the 4.25″x 5.5″ card base. On both cards, the top two layers were glued together and foam mounted onto the card base. On the top card, I added two banners. The sentiment one was cut using the thin cut dies that coordinate with the Sugar Rush-Cardmaking stamp set; the second was cut with a paper trimmer first, layered with the thin Pomegranate Washi tape, then fishtailed with Micro-tip scissors. I also used the Micro-tip scissors to cut the “Happy Birthday” sentiment from the full stamp that says, “Happy Birthday with sprinkles on top!” I get more bang for my buck by cutting some stamps apart and using only part of them…like how I used the same “Happy Birthday” on the bottom card then added “Sprinkled with love” beneath.
Note: I don’t own Pomegranate ink. On the bottom card, I used Cranberry ink instead. Since I stamped both the donut frosting and the second half of the sentiment on colors, it came out looking pretty close to Pomegranate. In fact, even if I owned Pomegranate, I might have used Cranberry anyway in case the Pomegranate came out too dark. I’ve added links to both Pomegranate ink and Cranberry ink below for that reason. I did the same thing for Sea Glass and Juniper ink. Also note that the links below include both the stamp set on its own and one that looks like just the die cuts. If you want both the stamp set and the coordinating dies, click on the link with the three die cuts only. The stamp set is in there, too. I promise.
On this card, I used the thin cuts directly on paper rather than stamping the image and then cutting with the thin cuts. One of the paper patterns in Sugar Rush has large circles on it. I used it to make the Pomegranate frosting. To decorate, I embossed with white powder. That was the only stamping, aside from the sentiment. I cut the donuts directly from Cashmere paper.
I created my own background by layering the three different Washi tape patterns.
The sentiment is the cut apart one from above pieced back together on the acrylic block. I accented it with the Sugar Rush Glitter gems.
Oh, yeah…I’m going to have fun with everything Sugar Rush!
Until next time,
