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:

This past weekend I attended Heirloom’s Lawrenceville Rubber Stamp & Paper Arts Festival. Friday night I attended the Design & Treasure Make-n-Take with some friends. Saturday we went shopping! I was in search of some stamped images for my Spectrum Noir coloring class held at the end of this month which will feature coloring fabric/clothes. I came across the Santoro stamp sets at the Creek Bank Creations vendor booth. The stamps they featured were large with open areas to color and practice blending techniques. Here is the Santoro Tweed – The Friendly Hedgehog stamp set:

Four of us got together Sunday and made several creations using some of our recent stamp haul. While the other ladies finished their Pink and Main cards, I decided to work on my sample of this stamped image for the Spectrum Noir class at the end of the month. I also like to kill two birds with one stone, so I looked at the online card challenges available this week and decided to enter my card creation for CASology Week 234 – Youth challenge.

I had already stamped the images using my MISTI the night before. I chose Spectrum Noir cardstock and inked the images with Memento Tuxedo black ink. The ladies around the table wanted a sepia/lavender colored card; therefore, I chose the following colors. I began with the frame and used Spectrum Noir TN1, TN3, TN9, and GB10. Next, was the hat and clothing on the adorable girl. I used IG1, LV1, LV2, and HB1. As usual, I colored the hair a reddish/auburn color. I didn’t want to go too brunette because I felt the hair would blend in too much with the other colors. I wanted a little pop of color against the muted shades. I chose TN2, TN3, TN4, TN9, and OR1. Last but not least was her face. I used FS6, HB3, TN3, and FS8. The colored images are simply stunning.  Once everything was colored, I cut the images out using Cheyenne’s new Brother Scan and Cut 2. I did have to cut the inside of the frame by hand but I’m sure there’s a way to do this with the cutter.

The finished card ended up being a 5 x 7 card because the frame is almost that large. I took some SU! retired Grape cardstock for the base (I can’t remember the name other than Grape). The mat is SU! Rich Razzleberry which I embossed with one of my new We R Memory Keepers Next Leveling Embossing folder. I LOVE that folder design!!! Contact Creek Bank Creations to purchase one for yourself. The frame is popped up using two layers of foam tape and the girl is adhered using FSJ White Liner Tape.

Here is the finished card. It is just too cute.

Just for comparison, I’ve added Cheyenne’s photo taken with her iPhone before the card was assembled. It’s amazing how colored cardstock and lighting make a difference in the same completed image.

Thanks so much for dropping by!
