What Could Be Better than Donuts and Coffee?

Fun Donut Birthday Card by Neva Cole

Chocolate donuts are simply the best, even better if they have Cocoa flavored frosting as well! I used a new set of The Stamps of Life to create a few yummy looking donuts with different types of frosting. Delicata Dark Brown Shimmer is embossed to create a shiny frosting on one donut. The other donuts are stamped and embossed to create Radiant Neon Electric Pink sprinkles, and white frosting from white embossing powder. Delicata Dark Brown Shimmer is applied with an ink blusher to give a shimmery frosting look.

‘Thanks a Grande’ Handmade Card by Tenia Nelson

Tenia here from Jazzy Paper Designs with a very cool card using Cocoa as my main color and of course made with Imagine and Tsukineko products. I stamped my sentiment and images onto kraft paper with Brilliance Pearlescent Chocolate and embossed everything with clear embossing powder. I fussy cut the images to create some fun layers. For the background I added some splatter onto kraft paper using Fireworks Craft Spray in Rich Cocoa. To create my finished look I adhered a scrap piece of patterned paper, and added washi and sticker stitches onto the image panel. I used foam tape on some elements to give the nice depth, and added a few fun matching embellishments.

  1. Virtual coffee and doughnuts – great fun – and slightly less chance of those doughnuts finding your hips or thighs! Not a card maker, but have been known to knit doughnuts for calorie free fun!
