Hi!

        I have another another bright Fall card to share with you. I designed this with STAMPlorations products for the Fall CLBH.

STAMPlorations is one of the FAll CLBH sponsors and Shery has a bunch Coffee & Tea lover themed products in her store.slide011

Here’s a closer look at my card:slide005 I love this new STAMPlorations stamp, Framed Coffee Cup.preview-FramedCoffeeCupBesides the stamp I also used the ARTplorations’ Stencils Some Birds and  Chevron Crazy.

How I made this card:

  1. I made the background by stenciling on water color paper with Brusho Crystal Colours and the Chevron Crazy stencil.slide003
  2. I stamped the Framed Coffee Cup in embossing ink and then heat embossed in white embossing powder on the chevron background. slide007
  3. I added some details and shading to the cup with some Zig Clean Color Brush Pens.slide004
  4. I added some steam with a liquid chalk pen.slide010
  5. I stenciled on the birds.slide006
  6. Matted the chevron panel.slide009
  7. Added the matted panel to the black card base.

Plaid – 3 color families

Hello! Thanks for visiting. I’m here with a card inspired by CASology’s Week 161 challenge: Plaid. I missed the deadline for CASology though!

IMG_0924edited

First I sponged 3 basic colors, yellow, green and purple. Then I used stamps from PTI’s Plaid Builder and Background Basics: Super Stripes Stamp Set. The “XOXO” sentiment is from Happy Little Stampers’ Bold Birthday Sentiments.I think that this sentiment will be a “go to” sentiment for me!

IMG_0900editedNext I used a Spellbinders square die to cut out 3 squares.

IMG_0901editedI would like to play this card at SSS’s Monday Challenge: A Trio of Colors.

IMG_0926editedI used a new embossing folder, fittingly named “Argyle Textured Impressions”. I really really like this embossing folder!

Thanks for stopping by!
