International Women’s day Bloghop | Customer Playful Sentiments – Cute Donuts Digi Stamp

by Colleen Balija

Hi everyone,
This is Colleen.

Happy International Women’s Day! Today crafters have come together around the world to celebrate YOU and all the amazing women in this wonderful community around the world, with an inspirational blog and Insta Hop.

Alex Syberia Design is proud to be a sponsor of this inspiring event, along with these amazing companies:


All the details about the Blog Hop & Insta Hop can be found HERE at the beginning of the hop!


Today I want to share 2 cards with Custom Playful Sentiments! I’m using the Cute Donuts digital stamp that was released in February. One of the donuts looks like a kitty, which inspired my idea!

cute-dinuts-alex-syberia-cardmaking-stamps-cascardsIsn’t this stamp adorable? Alex has some real playful digital stamps to choose from! I looked up cat memes online and came up with two custom playful sentiments that are PURRfect for my cat cards!



For my first card, I printed my cat onto Neenah Solar White 80 lb cardstock. I did this twice so that I could use one as a mask to do some ink blending behind the cat that I shall now name Beatrice! I used Catherine Pooler inks in Garden Party, Lime Rickey, and Grass Skirt and then sprayed them with water to get a cool distressed look. Can you see it below?

Aren’t those colors springy and cheerful! Next I colored Beatrice and added googlie eyes to her. I got this idea from my dear friend Erica C. Thanks for the idea, Erica!


The last part was to add my custom playful sentiment, which says “Meow You Doin?” That seemed to fit perfectly with Beatrice’ playful personality! I arranged the letters in a playful way too, using Stamp Market’s Chunky Alphabet stamp. I adhered Beatrice to a black cardbase and she was ready for some mischief!



My next card is mostly filled with playful sentiments and one of the Cute Donuts from Alex’s release! This one is Beatrice’s cousin, and his name is Frank. Frank was not happy with having to blend in rather than stand out like his cousin. But hey, I needed him to cooperate! Ok, I digress, back to the card now.


Frank is located within the word “Don’t”! I saw a t-shirt online that looked similar to this and knew it would make the perfect playful card!


My first step was to upload this design into a Word document and reduce the size to fit with the Chunky Alphabet stamps. Then I printed the design onto Neenah Solar White 80 lb card stock. I used a ruler to create lines so that the letters were in alignment. When I was finished stamping with black ink, I erased the lines.


The last step was to color Frank so he popped up more than the other letters, add a few paws in the same color, and place the card panel over patterned paper that reminded me of a stressed out cat! I’ve had cats, I know what a stressed cat looks like! It’s not pretty! But this card is pretty, right?
I really enjoyed playing with custom sentiments and Alex’s playful stamps! And thank you for staying with me as I got silly!

These cards are just adorable. I have not really played with making my own sentiments for the front. I have done it for the inside but never the front. It is a genius way to make digital stamps, or any stamp more versatile. Very inspirational and lovely results.

Whimsy fun with wonderful coloring of cats. Like the slimline that is popular these days and eyes for attention grabbing focus. Like the bold bright colors with large lettering sentiment.

Cuddly cute! I love the cute face as donut kitty on the first one with googly eyes with additional spot details and the focus on the sentiment on the other one with paw prints is just awesome!
