NCC Coffee Wishes cu 09588
It’s my turn to host the Featured Stamper Challenge (FS494) on Splitcoast! So a big congrats to Jen, the newest Featured Stamper! I chose THIS card to case. I kept the coffee theme and layout, but I used different images, different colors, different papers & white embossed my navy “chalkboard”.

After die cutting the navy & designer paper panels, I white embossed all the coffee sayings on the navy & added a little die cut scallop border underneath. The two coffee cups were stamped w/ the Memento, colored w/ Copics & overstamped w/ the denim ink. The denim ink was the color I wanted, but this particular ink doesn’t play well w/ Copics, so I had to stamp w/ it after coloring. They were fussy cut & I also fussy cut a couple of sections of some of the printed paper to put on top.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used. NCC Coffee wishes inside 09591

Splatter Art 09545
For my Create card, I started w/ a splat embossing folder, inked it w/ the different colors of distress inks, spritzed it w/ a little water, then placed my piece of white card stock inside & pressed. It wasn’t’s still flat. (There’s a tutorial for this showing how to do it w/ daubers, but ink pads work great, too.) I wanted just a bit more of the raspberry color, so I used the Ink Spots image to add some here & there. I placed a couple of frames on top of it & added my stacked Create die cut on top. The Mug of Art was stamped, colored w/ Copics & fussy cut along w/ the paintbrush. A few sequins were added for a little sparkle.

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

Sparkle cu 09577
Today’s Color Challenge (CC592) is coral, cantaloupe & saffron..these colors seemed a little retro to me so I pulled out some spiral images that also feel a little retro to me. Sparkle IMG0428
The little strip on the left was actually a brayered leftover that just happened to have the colors I needed, so I stamped the spiral border on it.

The little spiral flower was stamped & a little matching color added & fussy cut. After die cutting the white panel, I put it in my Misti and stamped the greeting. Then I colored the SPARKLE word w/ a black Wink of Stella & stamped it again. I added some clear WOS to the spiral images & stamped die cut sequins. It’s REALLY sparkly in person! I added a narrow frame behind the main panel which I also colored to match.
