Coffee!


It's Sunday and time again to share a card made with stamps from I Brake For Stamps.  I have this really cute coffee shaker card made with stamps from MS79 Full Plate of Coffee and sayings.  Here is how it was made;

1.  A circle was diecut in a white panel and the coffee beans were randomly stamped with VersaMark Ink and embossed with white embossing powder.
2.  Antique Linen, Tea Dye and Walnut Stain inks were sponged on the panel in the order listed.  When done, rub the coffee beans with a paper towel to remove ink and make it pop. Set aside.
3.  Stamp sentiment with Onyx Black VersaFine Ink on blue paper that is smaller than the coffee bean panel and emboss with clear.
4.  Diecut Fun Foam using a circle die one size larger than used for the coffee bean panel and glue so the opening is over the sentiment.  Add sequins and beads.

5.  Glue acetate to the back side of the coffee bean panel and glue the panel onto the Fun Foam.  Glue to a brown card.
6.  Stamp the coffee cup on watercolor paper with Onyx Black Ink, emboss with clear and color with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens.  Cut out and glue to the side of the shaker opening.
7.  Add a few Black Dot Sparklers and your done!

To Brighten Your Day


Today I'm sharing a pretty flower card that's sure to brighten anyone's day.  It was made with the Large Fritillaria and Sending Smiles stamps from I Brake For Stamps. Here is how the card was made.

1.  1 1/2' was cut off the bottom of a white card and the remaining portion was randomly stamped with the Large Fritillia stamp with Leaf Green Archival Ink.
2.  The Large Fritillaria was stamped on separate white card stock with Leaf Green and Aquamarine Archival Inks, then cut out.
3.  A strip of green paper was glued to the bottom of the white card and the flowers were glued to cover up the seam.  Rhinestones were placed in the center of the flowers.
4.  Nuvo Crystal Drops in Caribbean Ocean were randomly added around the flowers.  Set aside to dry.
5.  Stamp Sending Smiles on acetate with Jet Black StazOn Ink.  Cut it out and glue to the card with Glossy Accents.

Valentine's Day Hearts And Tag


Wow I can't believe it's already time to make Valentine's Day cards, the holidays just flew by! Today's card doesn't use any stamps, it's all made with the Sizzix Triplits Chevron Tags set of dies from The Stamps Of Life.  To make the background, Wilted Violet, Tea Dye and Walnut Stain Distress inks were splattered on a white panel, wahsi tape was placed on the left side and the panel was glued to a purple card with 3 in 1 Glue.  The tag and heart pieces were diecut from purple and tan papers, then layered to make the tag. The heart were glued to the card with Glossy Accents as were the confetti pieces that were left over from diecutting. The tag was popped up with foam tape and tied with ribbon.
