A Rainbow of Coffee

Hello!  I'm here today with a just for fun card based on a few challenges! :)  If you hadn't seen yet the Summer Coffee Lovers Hop is going on now until June 30th, and I just had to play along...

To create this card I was inspired by the Simply Irresistible Challenge focusing on the Emboss Resist Technique.  I started by stamping and embossing this coffee cup by Mint Owl Studio in a Sparkly White Embossing Powder.  At first I had thought about watercoloring over the image, but then when I opened up one of my drawers I came across one of my chalk circular ink pads and decided to simply turn it over and press the ink down onto the image as it was.  I then went back in with a sponge and added more color where it was needed.  Once it dried I diecut the heart around the cup and hoped it up with foam adhesive.  I stamped the heart and sentiment with a kraft ink onto the Kraft cardbase.

Oh, and I almost forgot I added a spritz of shimmer, simply because I like it! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Happy Crafting!

July 11th Crafters Companion is on HSN

YAY!!!!  It's getting closer to another fun filled day on HSN July 11th with Crafters Companion, and I can't wait!  For now I have the pleasure of sharing peeks of the new products in use, and let me tell you there are so many new goodies it'll be hard to narrow it down.  You can see the products now by going here.  Today I'm going to share a card I've created with the new Spectrum Noir Colorblend Pencils that will be available in sets of 12 with a dvd, and there will be a blending kit that you can add on, as well as the Spectrum Noir Premium Pencil Paper Pad.

To make this card even easier to put together I used the Crafters Companion 30 piece Card Blanks, that are amazing and come with matching envelopes!  These will be available on HSN too!  The floral images are from the Colorista Stamps Collections.  For added shine I've used the Luxury Cardstock in Silver.

These pencils blend beautifully, and all of the colors mix so well between both sets of 12.

Make sure you join in on the Crafters Companion HSN party on Facebook for more peeks, prizes, and fun!

This card is great for today, because it just so happens to feature both new products!  To create my background I layered strips of the Paper Tape diagonally before die cutting it with the Postage Stamps Die Set.  I had stamped the floral and leaf images from the Dear Friend Set with Grass Pigment Ink and Hibiscus Pigment Ink.  I added some cute Cherry Blossom Sequins, and Creative Candy Pretty Pearls in Sugar.

A Muse Studio Sneak Peeks Day 2

I'm back, woot woot!  And it is time to share some more sneaks of another new set making it's debut in the A Muse Studio Store this Friday!  Today's set is called Banner Sentiments, and it is exactly what you think it is...

The Banner Sentiment set also has a matching die set, and three different banner styles for displaying the sentiments.  On the card up above I went for a more masculine feel with a mix of the Melon, Mermaid and Grass colors.

Supplies Used: MelonMermaid and Grass Cardstocks, Hexagon Background Set Stitched Circle Windows Die Set, Banner Sentiment Set and Die Set.

I have also created a mini plant holder of sorts with the smaller sentiment floral banner image...

Isn't it so cute and little?!  For this little holder I've used the Tiny Popcorn Box Die, Banner and Sentiments Stamp Set and Die, Creative Candy Pretty Pearls: White, Petite Gingham in Bubble Gum Cardstock, and Grosgrain Stitch Ribbon in Bubblegum.

Make sure you head over to the A Muse Studio Blog for more peeks and a giveaway!
