Sprinkles Just Make Life Better

This is the card I made for my step-father for Father's Day.  We both LOVE donuts, and I have had this stamp set for awhile (and never used it), so I thought it would be perfect for his card.
I stamped, colored, and cut the donuts out.  I applied Espresso Dimensional Pearls for the frosting.  Now, I didn't have any beads or glitter for the sprinkles, so I cheated and punched some teeny tiny holes out of cardstock.  I had a lot of help with this card, and Oscar is covered in teeny tiny little dots from the cardstock because he felt the need to roll in them every time I punched them out.  I stuck them to the Espresso Dimensional Pearls, but it just didn't look shiny enough for a chocolate frosted donut.  So, I added a layer of Diamond Glaze to the top and I think it looks really good. 
The coffee cup stamp that comes with this set, is really cute, but chuck is not a double shot orange mochaccino with whip kind of guy.  So, I improvised with making a to-go style coffee cup.  Every thing is adhered with differing layers of pop up dots.
I added some letter stickers and a Whoo Hoo label to finish it off.  I really have a hankering for Dunkin Donuts right now, but, its thundering/lightening something wicked out there and it's Game 3 of the Stanley Cup, so I will forgo my donut to cheer my boys on.  Go Bruins!

  1. Those donuts look good enough to eat! I love your coffee cup too- sounds like Oscar would have a blast with my Tigress. She has loads if fun with any scraps of paper (especially ribbon) that fall from my table *Ü* hope the job front opens up for you real soon. Hugs~
