Because life's better buzzed

Hello! Playing in this weeks Freshly Made Sketch. Also adding this into the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.


Coffee sentiment stamp is from Lil' Inker Designs. Coffee word die is from Sugar Pea Designs and the coffee cup die is from Paper Smooches.

I colored the coffee word die using a Copic marker. I doubled up on the coffee cup to pop it up and give it some dimension. Plaid designer paper, I believe is from Echo Park's Carta Bella line.

ETA: I forgot to enter this into the Wednesday SSS challenge of Pop it up.

Have a great weekend!

Inspiration Palette - Thinking of you



It’s time for another challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week we were challenged to create something using the following inspiration palette.


I smooched some distress oxide and regular distress inks onto a acrylic block then smashed them onto a piece of  watercolor paper. After I heat set it, I stamped the open leaf (10203-D, Leaf Cluster Outline) randomly across it and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. It's subtle but so cool in real life. I used brown as the card base.

 
So, what are you waiting for?!

Why not play along with us and start stamping up a card now. We can’t wait to see your creations!

CAS Happy Birthday

Hello! Playing in the Addicted to CAS challenge today. Code word is Florals.


Flower stamps are from Purple Onion Designs. I used markers to color these directly onto the stamps and huffed on them to reactivate the ink. Added some black dots for the flower centers and a bit of interest. Sentiment is from Papertrey, Ink, bigger blooms.

Black cardbase and rustic cream cardstock is also from PTI.






Project of the week - Inlaid sentiments

Hi everyone. It’s my turn to host the project of the week over at the House That Stamps Built. I’ve chosen to do an inlaid sentiment, so grab your supplies, and follow along.


I used the new Distress Oxide inks, Versamark ink, the Solid flower stamp from RI #10301-H and the Happy Birthday Day die.



I stamped the flower randomly over the card front with Versamark, then heat embossed it using clear embossing powder. Using the Oxide inks, I blended out my color combo. Then I cut the sentiment out and preserved all the bits and pieces.

Cut out another sentiment using a coordinating color of cardstock and again, preserve all the bits and pieces.

Lay your piece onto a card base and add some tape or glue and then reinsert all the letters and pieces.  

This is what it looks like finished and you can get two cards out of this technique if you plan right.


Hope this inspires you dig through your dies and supplies to make a few cards.

Fall Pumpkins

Hello. Playing in The Paper Players challenge today.


This stamp is an old one from Yvonne Albritton that I picked up at a stamp show years ago. It's colored with Copic's.

The white layer in back is impressed with the picnic plaid impression plate from Papertrey, Ink.

I'm so glad that it's raining and fall is in the air. Thanks for stopping in.

Coffee solves everything

Hello. Playing in thee Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop.

Stamps are from SugarPea Designs.

Stamped the cup and lid onto rustic cream cardstock and then fussy cut it out. Sentiment is also stamped onto the same cardstock.

Designer paper is from an old fall leaf K&Company paper pack. I've had it in my stash forever and hoard it and use is sparingly. Burlap paper used in the background is from DCWV and I fancy cut the side that is showing.

That's it for now. Thanks for stopping in.
