Like it a Latte Card

One of the cards from the Oldies but Goodies Party

This is one of my favorite sets, I have a lot of the coffee sets that are retired but this one I love and still use it a lot. Deanna (my best friend from High School) stayed the weekend with me for the Party. It was nice having her here and all her help. She was the one that picked the colors and out line for this card, I think we were up until 2am making cards on Saturday we had a blast!

On the Cup I stamped it in Tempting turquoise and then used my Early espresso marker around the edge of the stamp then stamped it. I think it looks great with the outline around the cup. I did the same thing with the Heart stamp and put it on with dimensionals.

Stamp set:

Dark & Dreary Card

I just had to make a card with the new Spider Web Textured Impressions folder. Its just a simple card to show how cute it is. The Spider stamp is from "Dark & Dreary" and the word stamp is from "Twick or Tweet".

I used red glitter on the spiders to make them look more scary. The saying fits a spider card Perfect! "It's Halloween... enjoy every bite." After I used the Impressions folder on the white card stock I used a sponge dauber with black on the web, then used silver ink on top of that. I just took the silver pad and ran it across the top of the card. Then just for more bling I added the new Glimmer brads in Silver and Black.

Only 83 Days until Halloween!!!

Espress Yourself Coffee Card

I love making coffee cards!!!

I have lots of Coffee Stamp sets "Like it a Latte", "What's Brewin'?", and the new one "Morning Cup" but the set I used Today is "Espress Yourself". I love Coffee so goes to say.. I love Coffee stamps. They make the best birthday and friend cards and you can always add a Coffee gift card inside. Right now my favorite Coffee is a Mocha with Coconut in it.. YUM YUM! at my favorite place they call it the "Hollywood Star" Terry and I get it every time we go there.

I stamped the words in Chocolate chip and then added the mug in Baja breeze. I stamped and cut the little cups then taped them to a piece of Baja breeze and cut them out again and then added them with hemp thread. I put lots of Dimensionals so that it looks like the mugs are hanging on the card. Some of the other saying in this stamp set are Happy Birthday to a Regular Joe", Your friendship warms my heart", Just wanted to Espresso my thanks" really great sayings! That is one reason I have kept this set for so many years.! I can't wait to see what Terry Su's card looks like.

Artistic Etchings Pink Card

I was helping Terry Su out tonight with her stamp-a-stack, and made this card for her group of gals that came out. I was real happy how it turned out. I just used Pink Pirouette paper instead of white, that is why the card is so Pink looking. I used the sponge dauber all over this card with rose red ink. I just love how so many stamp sets have crowns in them now.. makes the princess in me so so happy. lol I spritz the card before I put it all together, then added pearls and rhinestones. I was trying to stamp the image behind the Eiffel Tower to look like fireworks.

If you click on this photo you can see how pretty the Silver Smooch Spritz is. I took it outside in the sunlight and it sparkled like diamonds.
