First up is one of my favorite cards I made for this release. This new All About Ampersand die is pretty cool! It has 3 options for the "&" symbol which seems to be popping up all over the place. I cut the die from corrugated cardstock which gave it that wrinkled look. I then stamped two of the sentiments from the coordinating stamp set, All About Ampersand stamps, with VersaMark and then embossed them in gold and popped them up with dimensionals.
I really liked the sentiment "we go together like" that is included in the All About Ampersand stamp set. I thought it would be perfect to use with the Donuts die & the Eat More Donuts stamp set released last time and the frosting die and stamp from the same sets. All of these are adhered to one of the Stitched Mats: Rounded Rectangles. I cut out the pink stripe with one of the stripes in the Long & Skinny Rectangles die set. And then I used the single stitched die piece (it doesn't cut, it only stitches the line wherever you place it) to make another line next to it.
I also die cut another one of the All About Ampersand dies in a shiny foil like cardstock. I distressed the donut to make it look more realistic. The center of the plain donut was cut out using one of the small dies (for the hang hole) from the Anytime Tags die set. I added glossy accents to the top of my frosting die cut and then sprinkled some small "sprinkles" on top. After everything dried, I adhered the donut pieces with dimensionals.
