You're My Cup of Tea

Sunday, February 16, 2020

I love tea and coffee sets!  This one from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is one of my favorites!

I cut openings into the card base and layered different cardstock colors behind the openings.  The sweet images are from the Tea 4 You set which I copic colored.

Saturday Coffee Cafe - Purrfect Brew

Happy Saturday and welcome to the Cafe!  There are some 'special guests' here today so come on in and grab a purrr-fect cup of brew!

I've loved this darling stamp from Newton's Nook called Caffeinated Cats!  The little kitties are so cute peeking out of the cups!

Instead of coloring the entire image, I used the highlight stamping technique.  I stamped the entire image on white cardstock as the background then stamped it on a die cut circle.  I colored the images on the circle and layered it on top of the background matching up the images.

Hello Beautiful

Thursday, February 13, 2020

Hey, Pink & Main Fans!  It's snowing today (insert sad face!)  I'm SO ready for Spring and thankfully, it has arrived in my craft room!

 For my card, I cut black and white cardstock using the Stitched Rectangles Set 2 dies; adhering the black cardstock piece to the card base.  On the white cut piece, I used the new Daisies Stencil blending cream ink with the awesome Ergonomic Blending Brush (LOVE this new tool!!)

 I inked up the solid butterfly in the Hello Beautiful set with several springy distress ink colors, then inked up the floral butterfly in black ink and stamped over the colors.  For the center of the butterfly, I used the set's coordinating die to cut black glitter cardstock.

Light Up My Heart

It's almost Valentine's Day, but any day is a good day to tell someone you love them!  In fact, tell them how much they light up your heart!

For my card, I layered two different pattern papers over pink cardstock and adhered to the card base.  I then took the You Light Up My Heart Shaker Card Kit and applied Gina K Red Velvet Glitz Glitter Gel to the light bulb/heart shape.

To finish, I added the 'love' word die and shadow from the I Love You Shadow Die.

Kat Scrappiness shaker kits are so easy and fun to put together!  Here's a video to show you how. I assembled the shaker and used Candy Kisses Valentine Shaker Mix and 4mm Gold Heart Sequins to fill it.

Wishing you a Happy Valentine's Day and to say You Light Up My Heart!! 


Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps: I Believe In You

Sunday, February 9, 2020

Those four little words, 'I believe in you', can move mountains!  To know that someone believes in you and is in your corner is gives you wings to fly!

Being a guest designer for Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps this month feels a little like that :) I'm humbled the team believed in me to give me this opportunity to share projects created with their lovely products!

For my card, I white embossed one of the dragonfly images in the Dragonfly Dreams set.  Then, I blended multiple colored distressed oxide inks. To finish, I stamped the sentiment and added a few clear glossy dots.

Check out the new Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Release and this terrific bundle deal!
