For the Inspiration Challenge (IC655), I was inspired by THISI’ve always loved this unique coffee image & it’s been way too long since I used it. So I managed to locate it (since moving, it’s been a challenge to find a lot of stuff!).
For my card, I put the coffee image (Smell the Coffee set CL157) into my Misti and stamped it on some paper I hand marbled. Well, actually it’s a copy of the paper I hand marbled. Since each one is a one of a kind piece I started using color copies so I could hang onto the originals. After stamping, I die cut & used some the leftover paper to make a frame. Some stickles was added for the glitter part.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Stamps: Impression Obsession – Smell the Coffee set CL156
Paper: Staples 110# white, black

It’s my turn to host the Splitcoaststampers Inspiration Challenge (IC635) & I chose Theme Rooms for our site. Since we recently moved, I find I’m always on the look out for ideas for our new place. The pictures are also pretty inspiring for creating cards & I was inspired by THIS picture.


I had a lot of fun making this one. I used the greeting as background & stamped it over & over in white then heat embossed it in white powder. I know a lot of people will use clear ink/white or black powder or else white or black ink & clear powder, but in my experience, I get a much better, clearer result (especially when using black) if I use the same color ink & powder. Just my 2 cents…well, w/ inflation it’s probably a dollar now. 

So after it was all embossed, I sponged on inks from a Kaleidacolor rainbow ink pad called Cappuccino over most of it. Then I stamped the coffee cup on a separate piece of white & sponged it w/ the same colors. The band was done again, masking it & stamping w/ the argyle pattern then cut & attached on top. Since the greeting was all over the bg, I made a little flag w/ just the die cut letters Coffee on it.

Here’s a look at the inside.

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!
