Hello everyone! I am SO excited to be participating in a blog hop to celebrate Simon Says Stamp's New Beginnings release! If you're just checking in make sure to start at the top of the hop on the Simon Says Stamp blog! Here are the links to all the stops along the hop - I HIGHLY recommend checking them all out as there is some fabulous inspiration:
Also stay tuned to the end of my post for some GIVEAWAY info!
You can check out the entire New Beginnings release over at SSS HERE <------click! So much fabulous new products to choose from!
I decided to use the new Funny Food stamp set and coordinating dies because they made me giggle the first time I saw them. Then when I got to thinking what to create I knew I HAD to combine the donut from Funny Food with the To-go Cup from SSS's Coffee and Tea set:
I stamped these characters onto Canson XL watercolour paper with Versafine Onyx Black ink then watercolored them in with my Clean Color Real Brush markers and a water brush.
The sentiment is from the new Funny Food set and I show in the video how I cut it apart so that I can stamp them separately. The Donut Worry I stamped in black by the images and the Be Happy was stamped with SSS Clear Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder on the black card stock.
I created the "sprinkles" on the donut by drawing them in with a white gel pen then colouring over them with a couple different Copic markers (BG05, RV17 and RV02). If I had some fun colors of gel pens on hand those would have worked perfectly as well!
The donut patterned paper is from the Doodlebug Cream & Sugar 6x6 pack (linked below with the supplies!) that I just adore.
I finished off the inside of the card with a sentiment from the Coffee and Tea set and added another stamped and coloured donut from the new Funny Food set and that was it!
To see how this card came together check out my video below:

I list all the supplies I use at the end of my posts (below) or in the description box directly below my video on YouTube.
