How to Make a Donut Card

Donut CardIf you are wondering what donut stamp this is, you will be surprised at the answer.  There is no donut stamp set, but you can create the perfect donut using a combination of a couple of stamp sets.   I got the idea for this card from a fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, Leah Fedynak.  Demonstrators belong to a special Facebook group where we share information and ideas.  And there are sooooooo many good ideas on this group. When I saw Leah’s card, I just knew I needed to try it.  It is a fun and fast card to make too!

You’ll need the pieces from these two stamp sets:  Painted Poppies and Dressed to Impress. See what the images I used circled in green below! And you can see the full supply list for this card at the end of this post.

Dressed to Impress stamp set to make donut card

  • First, you ink up the large blob from the Painted Poppies with Rococo Rose ink.  Then you use the small blob from the Dressed to Impress stamp set to remove ink from the image.  Stamp this small piece a couple of times right in the middle of the large blob to remove the ink.  You might need to wipe it off as you go.
  • When most of the ink looks like it is removed, stamp the image on your cardstock.  This becomes the icing on the donut.
  • Then trace around the icing to make a donut shape using a Crumb Cake marker.
  • Colour in the space between the icing and the outline with the Ivory Blends marker (see more about Blends markers here).
  • Then you make sprinkles with other colours of markers.
  • Add your saying.  The saying I used is from the Piece of Cake stamp set.  I though this sentiment was perfect for this card.  This fun birthday stamp set is on the retiring list along with the matching Cake Builder PunchSee the retiring list here (only a few more days to get retiring items).

See the full list of supplies used on this card below. I can’t wait to try other “flavours” of donuts.  Let me know if you try to make a donut card too!
