Settle down, it's a long story.
It started while I was watching Mastermind last night. I know I get card inspiration from some strange places, but Mastermind? REALLY? Well, the answer to one of the questions was "The American term for what we call Hundreds and Thousands is Nonpareils" - which led me to think of rainbow sprinkles - which made me think of the sentiment I've used on one of my cards - which made me think of vanilla doughnuts. My mind works that way. Sometimes.
So, armed with my Dylusions sentiment and the doughnut and sprinkles stamps from a past issue of Creative Stamping, I set to to create this card.
I am sharing this card with Less is More - Rainbow.
Next I had a delve into the snippets box and came up clutching a bundle of pretty floral papers. As there were three co-ordinating ones, each roughly a third of an A4 sheet, I decided to make a trifold card. The plan was to stamp the doughnut on the offcuts of the paper (snippets of snippets, if you like) and add them to the patterned panels - however they looked lost against the patterned backgrounds, so I stamped and coloured three more plain vanilla doughnuts which worked much better.
I am sharing this at Pixie's Snippets Playground - challenge #363
So here is my Twofer pair, as I had originally planned them.
Which, of course, I am sharing at Twofers - Sweets
However there were three stamped doughnuts, on patterned paper, left sitting on my table. Once I'd coloured in the "cakey" part they looked so pretty - if Cath Kidston made doughnuts, I reckon these would be them! I couldn't just throw them away or bung them in the Black Hole of "stuff I didn't quite use this time but might some time in the future" where so many stamped images go to die, so while I had the stamp set with its fun sentiments to hand, I popped them onto an extremely quick and CAS card:
So there you have it, the twofer that became a threefer.
Incidentally if you are still reading, apologies for radio silence for the last few days, I've been away at my Mum's for a few days. She's almost 94 now and getting very frail both physically and mentally so it's been quite a challenging time. It's lovely to be home and crafting again - crafting takes my mind off things wonderfully!
