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:

My little kiddos love to play any type of Super Hero. It can be Captain America, Wonder Woman, Super Girl, Superman, Batman, and it goes on and on. This was the reason I purchased Darcies Super Heroes rubber stamp set at the Stamp and Scrapbook Event back in September. I stamped the images when I got home and colored them with my brand new Fun Stampers Journey (FSJ) Color Burst Pencils, and then they have been moved between the kitchen and craft room many times until today.  I, finally, took the time to make a card with my buddy, Jacob, because he asked me to make a card with the super hero images he found laying around last week in my office. I suggested he make a card with his image, and I would make a card for my super hero girl, Sam.

I chose my layout based on Fab Friday’s Sketch Card Challenge #101. Once I got started, the card fell right into place. Here is their sketch:

The base of the card is FSJ Whipped Cream with two mats on top of it FSJ Cranberry Bliss and FSJ Catalina Splash cardstocks.   I took some FSJ Lemon Drop cardstock and using the FSJ Sun Rays die I ran them through the FSJ Platinum Machine. I DID NOT punch out the negative of the cut image, instead I applied adhesive to the backside of the pieces still in the die and carefully tuned the die right side up (the cardstock is on the bottom side of the die) and centered it on the FSJ Catalina Splash mat. I pressed each piece down and then lifted the die creating a negative image sun ray onto the mat. Using FSJ Circle dies, I cut a large pierced circle out of FSJ Cranberry Bliss cardstock and a smaller circle out of FSJ Catalina Splash cardstock and layered them over the negative image of the die circle. The final step involved me stamping the sentiment onto FSJ Lemon Drop cardstock and die cutting them out with FSJ Star dies. Since they blended into the background, I matted them onto FSJ Cranberry Bliss cardstock. The Super Hero girl is raised using FSJ Foam Squares. I LOVE THIS CARD! Sam wanted to hold her card, and I said no – LOL. How ’bout we get a picture of you in a super hero costume, and we can make a scrapbook page to keep for a long time? That sounded good to her – wow, missed that bullet of the card, more than likely, getting torn up and/or mutilated.

Here is the card:

The next card is Jacob’s creation. I helped to adhere everything and the image was already stamped, colored, and cut out, but he directed where everything needed to be placed. He did place his stars into position.  I suggested a couple of thin Catalina Spash strips a little more than half way down and he nixed that idea. He’s just keeping it simple! He is my super hero.

Since Mother’s Day is just around the corner, I decided to create a Mother’s Day card using Fab Friday’s color challenge.
I chose SU! Painted Petals and SU! Perpetual Birthday Calendar to create this card. I think this unique color combination turned out well. This will definitely be a wonderful card to receive on that special day! I tried to get the best picture I could, but it does not do the card justice. I had used the hexagon metal die as a mask to add a little Hello Honey to the background and in person, it looks good. But, in the picture it looks like a dirt smudge. I added some bling
