Kathy Schweinfurth YOU ARE HERE


I'm super excited - being on both Design Teams - to share my projects created with the new STAMPlorations Zen Coffee #2 Cover Plate!


 For my first card, I used the inlaid die technique. I cut several colors of cardstock with the plate using a dark brown cardstock cut out for the base.  I 'colored' in the cut out spaces with the various die cut cardstock colors.  Yes, this did take some time, but oh-so-therapeutic for me :)  To finish, I cut gold cardstock using the Rise & Grind Phrase Die.


My next card was very easy to create.  I made a background using a few distress oxide inks.  Then, I cut white cardstock using the Zen Coffee #2 Cover Plate and adhered to the background.  To finish, I cut the Coffee Fix Phrase die from dark brown cardstock.

  2. You are a MASTER with this cutplate! I am so starstruck right now. You are a STAR! Love the way you kept the dark brown pieces together to help you focus on the cup/steam. GENIUS! The other two cards are just as beautiful. Bravo!

  6. I can't wait to receive this cover plate! I love that you can do the inlaid technique and get something so pretty (without coloring, which I don't do much of). Or, of course, you can color as beautifully as you did on the 2nd card.

  15. I love how you inlaid the coffee bean designs with brown so they stand out. When I first saw this cover plate, I didn't even realize there were coffee beans as part of the pattern.
