I feel like Homer Simpson! I love me a beautiful box of  FRESH donuts (I can personally slam down half a dozen glazed Krispy Kremes on a 45-minute drive from Provo to Salt Lake … ask me how I know for sure!)! So I’m staring at the images in the Ice Cream Swirl Bundle and I am just fixated on the one little bitty donut stamp and coordinating die … and all I can think about is eating a box of fresh donuts! Soooo … I made one instead!!!
After stamping several donuts I colored them with my Stampin’ Blends. Then I built the donut box!

I used the Deckled Rectangles and cut a frame using two of them of graduated sizes. I also cut a rectangular piece of Crumb Cake to put underneath the donuts as a base.

I ended up using a double Dimensional (one of top of another) to prop up each of the corners of the box “lid” to make them higher than the donuts, which I also put on one layer of Dimensionals.

I then cut a piece of window sheet to put behind the frame I made for the upper box lid. A layer of Pretty in Pink embossed with the So Swirly embossing folder added a good overall background, don’t you agree?

Stamps: Ice Cream Swirl, Happy Little Things
Paper: Crumb Cake, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White, Window Sheet
Ink: Black Memento; Stampin’ Blends - Pretty in Pink, Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake, Pecan Pie, Lemon Lolly
Accessories: Ice Cream Swirl Dies. Deckled Rectangle Dies, So Swirly Embossing Folder, Black & Very Vanilla 3/4” Large Check Ribbon, Adhesive Backed Sparkle Gems

Now I need to go buy some donuts … or maybe not … because I KNOW I will eat too many!!
