Just wanted to espresso my thanks - Day 1

Friday May 25, 2018
 
It's that time on year again..
This is day 1
This is my card.. First off yesterday I got my awesome Simon Says monthly kit and it has a detailed embossing folder in it among other goodies. I had to try the folder so I just grabbed a scrap of paper and embossed it.. WELL it's so beautiful I had to use that embossed scrap. So I added this to a bright pink card base. Then I stamped some flowers from Simon Says with SS ink on a scrap of paper trying to place them in the right place as I kept lifting up the unstamped coffee cup. Once I was satisfied with the placement I stamped the coffee cup by Reverse Confetti and then stamped the coffee inside the cup with Ranger ink I then went over the coffee with Spectrum Noir sparkle pen. I fussy cut the cup out then using copics added some other colors to the cup ring and handle. I added some Nuvo drops to the flower centers. I didn't like it just sitting on the card so I adhered some Martha Stewart punched leaves under it so it had a base. I stamped the sentiment also from Reverse Confetti.   I tell you this embossing folder is unbelievable. I hope the computer gives it justice.. I hope you play along with this week long hop. 

Challenges:
As you like it - flora or fauna (for my card I liked the flora, it makes the card more feminine and so many colors can be used. Love nature

Every time you smile at someone - Inspiration Destination #151

Wednesday May 23, 2018
 
Hello and hope you're doing great and having some fun crafting time. Today we are back with another two week challenge at
 Inspiration Destination #151  - our theme is ANYTHING GOES
 

I chose a Hero arts red rubber wood block stamp and stamped on water color paper. I purchased on Amazon a little tin that has 40 little cubes.. I filled them with re-inkers from Ranger and Stampin up. I let it sit out for a few weeks to kinda thicken them up. Well I used them to color this image. I like the look and will use this more and more. I then mounted it on a piece of Stampin up designer paper and using Stazon I stamped the Verses rubber stamp sentiment and used a piece of SU dp to cover the adhesive. I added a few Nuvo drops.

wishing you a Happy Birthday - Sunny Day Crafting #21

Wednesday May 23, 2018
 
We're back with another fun challenge at
and the theme for this week is UNICORN
  
 
 
I just used this image a few months ago for magical theme but didn't know this theme would be unicorn this week so since I don't have another unicorn.. I am using it again.. That's good cause I like that my stamps get used more than once.
I started by stamping this image then used Prisma colored pencils and rainbow colors. I used Stampin Up stitched circle die and adhered to the maroon card stock. I used Simon Says speech bubble and stamped the sentiment and Ranger ink for the stars.  I had some left over MFT stars from the outer space card so added them to the card they were colored with Mission water color paints. I went over the rainbow colors with Spectrum Noir sparkle pen and the stars.

It's time for another challenge at
 
Our theme is ALWAYS ANYTHING GOES + CHRISTMAS
 


So this card was very simple to make. I have a box of small Christmas items that I just found in a drawer.. I looked through my dp and found this awesome paper with the snowflakes all over it. In the box were these awesome stickers of a snowman and bundled up girl I got some time ago at WalMart.. when I have no idea. I usually don't buy this type of item at WalMart but it must of been a good deal.. I wanted the snowman to have a grounding so I just freehanded cut the image under it. I used Paper Trey sentiment stamp at the top and Paper Pretties stamp sentiment below. This is a simple fun card.
