Today I want to share a simple card. I used Coffee Shoppe #695 Digital stamps on it.

Image is colored with Promarkers. I added Glossy Accents to the classes.

I used some old scrap pieces made with glitters (Luau Green, Daisy, Orchid Rose) and lace on the Sticker Paper. It's easy. Just lay lace to the Sticker Paper and cover rest of the sticky part with glitter. Remove lace and add another color of glitter to the Sticker Paper.
Dark red strip is heat embossed with Sangria Star EP.

I also added some clear rhinestones to embellish the card.

Card base is covered with golden paper. Matting layer of the image is inked with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Sangria Star EP.

Materials used:
Stamp creditsCoffee Shoppe #695 Digi
Embossing Powders: Sangria Star (EP424)

Coffee Time

This month Sparkle N Sprinkle released several fabulous coffee stamps. On this card I used two of them in both rubber and digi versions.

On the card front are merged two digital stamps: Coffee Time #694 digi version and Coffee Shoppe #695 digi version. Images are colored with alcohol markers. Edges of the layer are covered with Sakura Glue Pen and Luau Green glitter.

Back of the chairs are colored with VersaMarker Pen and heat embossed with Silver Detail EP. Chair covers and table are popped up with foam tape.
I added green Marvy Uchida Liquid Applique to the small bushes and heated with the heat tool. The texture it gives is awesome.

Sentiment on the banner is stamped with Rich Cocoa ink.

Card opens up to reveal the side panel. Only embellishment on the card is two strips of Mon Ami Gabby Diamond Mesh. They are adhered with Aleene's Take It Over and Over glue.

Sentiment and small cups are from Coffee Shoppe #695 stamp set. Sentiment is stamped with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Silver Detail EP. Cups are stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored with markers.

I also stamped three sets of cups with Rich Cocoa ink to the inside of the card.

One for the Guys

 It's time for a new challenge at the Stamping Sensation. This month our theme is: One for the Guys.
I was asked to make red and white pocket card for a male. I also added black and silver to these colors to make the card more manly.  Card design is similar to the graduation card I shared last month.

I used the car from the Sparkle N Sprinkle Road Less Traveled - Stamp Set 629 as main image. It is colored with Promarkers. Some details are inked with VersaMarker pen and heat embossed with Silver Detail EP. I added Glossy Accents to the card lights.

I die cut several numbers and layered them all together. Top layer was heat embossed with Silver Detail EP. Silver brads was covered with  Black Enamel Accents

Crackle Background was stamped with VersaMark ink to the red and it was heat embossed with Clear Detail EP. Matting layers was heat embossed with Silver Detail EP.

Here you can see the inside of the card. It follows the similar design as a card front. Checkered pattern paper is made by me. 

I also made a simple envelope for the card.

Our this month sponsor is Foil Play who are offering one very lucky winner a £35 voucher to spend in their store.

Cards for guys are difficult for me. I hope you all participate in the challenge so we can inspire each other. Don't forget to use stamping on your project.

I'm not a big fan of the coffee, actually only thing I like about it, is it's smell. But I did enjoy playing with all the new coffee stamps which SNS revealed this month. On my Today's card I used Expresso Yourself Stamp Set #699.

Coffee cups are stamped and paper pierced with three different pattern papers. I also added some shading with Promarkers. Lids are inked with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Clear Detail EP. I also added a green flourish die cut behind the cups.

Sentiment is stamped with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Brown Fizz EP. Sentiment layer is inked with Evergreen Bough Distress Ink and I draw a frame with VersaMarker pen and heat embossed with Brown Fizz EP.

Background layer is stamped with Evergreen Bough Distress Ink. I used same sentiment all over the layer. It fits perfectly, like a puzzle piece, side by side. You can't even tell that the sentiment is originally in two rows. After stamping I covered words with Clear Detail EP and heat embossed. Edges are inked with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Brown Fizz EP.

The new SNS Creative Challenges also begins today, with lots of prizes and recognition badges.  The theme is always Anything Goes using Loose Glitter, Embossing Powder, and or Flock.

Notes holder

Then I lost my Mojo for card making, I try something different. Here is a little notes holder. It hold 8 x 8 cm papers and also a pen.  

Top of the box is decorated with white border,  1/8" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape and Orchid Rose glitter.

I used new Iris Garden stamp set as a focal point. These stamps are wonderful for any projects. Matting layer is die cut from cardstock which was covered with  2 1/2" Double Sided "Tear-ific Tape". After adhering the image, rest of the sticky tape was covered with  Orchid Rose glitter. 

Strip of Mon Ami Gabby Diamond Mesh is adhered on top of the 1/4" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape. To avoid any dust sticking to the tape I covered rest of it with Orchid Rose glitter.  

Back side of the holder is very simple. I just used decorative border punch,  1/8" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape and Orchid Rose glitter to hide the joint of the pattern papers.

I also made some notes papers. I stamped single iris flowers to them.


Material used:
Stamp credits: Iris Garden #687
Glitters: Orchid Rose (GM2016) 
Inks:  Memento (Tuxedo Black )
Dies:  Spellbinders (Label Four Small);
