Here I am with another weekend creation from our most recent stamp haul at the Heirloom’s Lawrenceville Rubber Stamp & Paper Arts Festival. This card was created with a Pink and Main stamp set called Need Coffee. Here is the package image containing all the stamps (you can click on Pink and Main or the image to check out their shop).


Isn’t this an adorable stamp set. This stamp set was from Cheyenne’s haul. She has been wanting this stamp set since October when she first saw it at Pink and Main’s booth during a different stamp show weekend. As I mentioned in the last post, I like to design a card around a card challenge and well, why not???

The challenge I chose for this card design is Fab Friday 105 card sketch challenge. Here is the card sketch:


There were four of use working on our own variation of this card. We chose our own color palette and embossing folder. I will post Cheyenne’s card at the end of the post. I don’t have pictures of the other cards.

We took our coffee girl and stamped her onto FSJ Whip Cream cardstock using Memento ink. In hindsight, we should have stamped the image using FSJ Black Licorice because the FSJ Fusion Blender we used to blend the colored pencil areas made some of the ink smear. We colored our images with the FSJ Color Burst Pencils. The FSJ Fusion Blender was used with the Blender stumps to smooth the colors together.

I used the FSJ pierced Circle die to create the circle mat out of FSJ Whip Cream cardstock and stamped the coffee cup in FSJ Oatmeal Cookie to add depth and bring interest. I added a touch of Spectrum Noir clear glitter pen to the bunny noses and ears, the steam from the coffee, and the pink sponge curlers. I applied Journey Glaze to the cofee to add a little shine. The sentiment is stamped with VersaMark ink and embossed with white embossing powder on FSJ Black Licorice cardstock.

Let me take a moment to comment on the mat and the red dot embellishment next to the sentiment. The quilted mat was created from FSJ Candy Apple cardstock using a We R Memory Keepers Next Leveling Embossing folder (this one is Cheyenne’s) purchased from Creek Bank Creations. Under the Candy Apple mat is a FSJ Cool Pool mat giving a hint of light blue. The red embellishment dot was created using Nuvo Red Berry Crystal Drops which was purchased from Sparkle and Sprinkle.

Here is the completed card:

I must say having a make-n-take right around the corner helps me to overcome a creativity block. I’m so glad Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch #162 gave me the perfect inspiration for one of my September Make-n-Take designs:

PCCCS-162-205-001-300x232

I had wanted to use up some of the DSP paper in my paper stacks, and this card fit the bill. I took DSP from SU! Fresh Prints paper stack, cut it into 1 1/2″ strips and then cut the strips diagonally from corner to corner. I then spiraled them around a small circle in middle of the card (I did have to overlap the last two or three very slightly to make the card look good). I then took SU! Perfect Blend and made a cup with a sentiment banner. The card is accented with copper twine and sequins I just bought last week on Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deals.
