Donut Girl

I had another play with some stamps today :)
This time I used the hungry girl from the CC Designs Donuts set.

She looks like she's having a great time, listening to her favourite songs and eating a donut (plus she has more donuts in the bag for later)!

The sentiment is from an older set called Cinnamon with Sunflower.  I just thought it went perfectly with Donut girl.  And the hug and kiss is from the Make a Card #12 Smoochies Die.

Ingredients :
Stamps : Donuts, Cinnamon with Sunflower
Card : x-press it, regal rose, pumpkin, choc chip, pip, old SU dsp
Ink : memento black, white craft, versamark
Other : white ep, Make a card #12 die, copics

Nice Breakfast

I decided to use the little guy from the Breakfast stamp set by CC Designs on a card.  He's very cute isn't he?!
I must admit, I was a little surprised that eating donuts for breakfast was a thing!
I only ever eat vegemite on toast for my breakfast.
But I do LOVE donuts!  Maybe he is having a pyjama day and eating whatever he likes whenever he likes?  :)

Card : x-press it, old SU dsp, choc chip

I used one of the cats from the the cute new Meowy set from CC Designs on a tag.

I use tags quite a lot on my cards, but this time I decided to just keep it as it is.  They do come in handy for present giving don't they?!

I used the smallest tag from the Make a Tag die for this.  And I used a discontinued stamp from CC Designs (BamPowPop Sentiments) to create a starry background with the emboss resist technique.  
The "HB2U" is from the Make a Card #14 Die.

Stamps : Breakfast

Ink : memento black, white craft

This new set called Donuts, is just so adorable!

I used one of the adorable reindeer from the Reindeer Games stamp set and the sentiment comes with the set too.

This time I used the little musician from the new Snowies set.
You could use the cuties in this set for so many different occasions, but I need more Christmas cards! :)

I used the Jumbo Alphabet die to cut out the letters for "joy".  And I tried to make the "O" look like a wreath by using a white pen and adding some twine.
The stamped sentiment is from the Little Pixie Angels set.
