A big Congrats to my sweet friend, Beth, our newest Featured Stamper (FS554) on Splitcoast! She has a beautiful gallery filled w/ so many colorful & creative cards & after much window shopping, I chose THIS to case. I kept the coffee theme & most of the colors, but I used different images, an embossing folder instead of a stamped background & moved the greeting to a circle element.

With the fall like temps we’ve had this week, I’m thinking it might be time for some Pumpkin Spice Latte! I’m not a big fan of pumpkin anything, but it sounds good.  I thought I had one of those go cup dies, but I didn’t so I used this fancy one instead. After I die cut the cups I sponged the edges & cut one handle off & put it on the other side so they could be facing each other. The Bee Trail was stamped w/ the Distress ink to serve as steam & I added a small label & little pumpkin to each cup. The kraft bg was embossed & the edges sponged then the larger pumpkin & greeting were added.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.


Congrats again, Beth! Thanks so much for stopping by!

To make my fall card, I put a piece of ivory card stock into my Misti & stamped the Tree Frame w/ the Kaleidacolor rainbow ink pad a couple of times. I used a water brush to drag the colors into the image then stamped over it w/ the vintage photo oxide ink.  I ended up fussy cutting the trees & attaching them to die cut piece of ivory where I stamped the tree frame again a couple of times w/ the Kpad (to add a colored outline). The greeting was stamped w/ the Versafine ink & a couple of leaves from the Remember To set were fussy cut & added. On the bg rectangles, I stamped the Wood Grain Bg onto ivory using the oxide ink then sponged some of the antique linen & vintage photo Distress inks onto it.

Here’s a look at the inside.

For today’s Inspiration Challenge (IC612) on Splitcoast, I was inspired by THIS picture. I wish I had an image of Snoopy but I don’t. But it reminded me of this tree & the pile of leaves images I have so I used them.

To make my fall card, I sponged  distress inks onto white c/s then stamped the tree & added some white highlights. The moon part was stamped on a separate piece of white & fussy cut. I added a thin white & a wider black layer then attached a white frame on top. The greeting was stamped across the bottom ( I forgot it was retired, but I still like it:) The pile of leaves was fussy cut & I added a couple of little punched pumpkins.
