National Coffee Day with So Suzy Stamps

Hi Everyone,

it's National Coffee Day  - the perfect day to use So Suzy Stamps! 
I love this coffee cup and I made a messy background for it.


'

My So Suzy stamps supplies:




I used photo paper and smooshed distress oxide ink and regular distress ink on it. This becomes almost dimensional on photo paper. You have to buff it after its dry, to get the oxide film off the paper. Added the heat embossed sentiment and a strip of patterned paper.


Yummy! Ready for some coffee?

STAMPlorations Christmas Release Blog Hop - Day 4

Hi Everyone,

today is the last day of STAMPlorations fabulous Christmas Release Blog Hop.


Today we are featuring the new dies.
 My first two cards are made with the new cover plate and dies:




I die cut the plate using black card stock that I had "treated" with ScorTape. I stuck it onto white card stock and colored in the rest with Finetec Mica colors.


For my second card I used the ScorTape backing as a mask and used another piece of ScorTape. Added gold Micro Glitter. Burnished the glitter onto the tape, lifted the mask and added black micro glitter. Colored the candles and bow with Copics.




For my first Christmas Blessings card I used a background made with black card stock and Fireworks sprays. The word die I cut out from a different part of my background paper.  Added the Winter Landscape Die and some glitter Washi tape on the side. Also added white gel pen accents to the die to make it more prominent.


For my second card I used the deer mask and brushos. After it dried I went around the deer mask with a fineliner pen. I then used the deer stencil and sponged the deer to make it stand out more. Added Washi tape at the bottom.




For my first card I used the new Mistletoe set. Stamped it with Versamark and heat embossed it in clear. Stamped the outline leaves in green and sponged. Added the red berries with additional Stickles. Glitter Washi on top and at the bottom.


For my last card I used my favorite set - Woodland Friends, lightly colored those darling animals and added Washi tape at the bottom.

So Suzy Stamps Event - Color your Life with Catherine Pooler

Hi Everyone,

today is a special day! We are celebrating our collaboration with Catherine Pooler in the So Suzy store, since we now carry her fabulous inks and a few other items, like stencils.


I am a big fan of those inks and often use them for my cards. They are very juicy and give you great coverage. But they also make for crisp impressions. They don't bleed and you can use the black with watercolors as well as Copics. 

For this card I stayed with simple stamping - a few taps of your stamp on the ink pad, stamp and you are done!


I used photo paper for this card. I first stamped the solid wispy chrysanthemum with Tiara yellow. Then I added the wispy outline chrysanthemum with Black Jack and the mini spray as well as the regular spray


I stamped the birthday sentiment and heat embossed it in white. Added a strip of patterned paper below.

Twofer Card Challenge #9

 Hi Everyone,

its time to play along with the current Twofer challenge. I almost didn't make it. I am going on vacation in two days and had to make a load of DT cards, but I had to squeeze this one in...

The theme is LEAVES.



My first card:


Made a birthday card with a Brusho background and that pretty leave die facing outwards. The sentiment is by Avery Elle. No idea by whom the die is.


  My second card:
Went with Halloween, what else would be a good option right now?

Had the leaves facing inward. Used rainbow paper as background  - a real time saver. Added some stamps (Teresa Collins, We R Memory Keepers) and a rat punch border (Martha Stewart)


This challenge just makes me happy!

Happy Twofing!
