Donuts and coffee and a giveaway

This is my 2nd post today! If you're looking for Lawn Fawn flamingos, scroll down or click *here*

I am so excited to share 2 other sets that I designed for Neat and Tangled's May release. The donut images may be familiar, if you've followed my blog for any length of time. Last year, I threw my kids a donut-themed birthday party that looked like this:


Since then, I dreamed of having these images in stamp form. I tweaked the images a bit so that they worked for card-making, and I hope you love Say Yes To Donuts as much as I do:



I made a main donut boy and a main donut girl. I like to think of myself as an equal opportunity stamp designer. haha. I hate having nothing to use for boy cards! And then, there are the extra heads that could peek out from behind the sides of the donut, or drape over the top. I think it would be totally fun to use the birthday hats from Big Top Birthday on these little guys.

I also worked on a separate, 3x4 set (my first mini set!) to bring you what I love best with my donuts: COFFEE. Big Bold Brew features the boy holding his giant mug of coffee, and a mix of fun (and I hope fresh) coffee-themed sentiments.



I thought I would make a simple card showing how the 2 sets could work together:

I really did draw them to work together, aren't they cute? I love his giant mug, and how the coffee is spilling out.

The hardest thing about designing coffee and donut sets? Coming up with some fresh sentiment ideas! I hope you like some of the ones I picked. 

Before you go, I am doing a giveaway for a copy of the Say Yes To Donuts stamp set. Leave me a comment on this post and tell me what you think of these new sets! I'll announce the winner on Friday morning's post. 

Now hop over to the NT blog to see what the rest of the DT made - click!

  3. I love donuts!!! For Mothersday my children gave me 5 delicious donuts with different toppings! And that's so funny about these stampsets. With color pencils you can give te donuts your most lovely topping...! And about the coffee mug: my husband drinks coffee during the whole day. It's a pergect set to make a card for my husband! The sentiments of that set are perfect for such a kind of card!

  27. А stunning collection of stamps, I like a girl in a donut, so many different options of cards can be done. set very multifunctional. especially like that the children can be attached to a donut from different sides. and especially like the label - from all of us. I'd love to make a card with this set.
