Coffee time!

 

Hello Gals and Pals!

I have something a little different to share with everyone today! My very supportive Aunt had asked me to make some going away cards this weekend for her 11 co-workers!

I didn’t have any gender netural cards, as most of mine do have some sort of character on the front of them.

I pulled out Tim Holtz Coffee Blueprints and embossed each watercolour paper with black embossing powder. I wanted to make sure that the watercolour wouldn’t react with the image, and I really wanted to make sure the stamp was bold on each image. (Since the stamps have the cute blueprint notations on them)

After embossing I pulled out my little distress cubes and Zig real brush markers to smoosh ink in a loose watercolour look. I kept the card design pretty simple, letting the emboss image make the biggest impact. Of course, I did have to add a sprinkle of little sequins or homemade epoxy circles.

I had fun making these cards and I hope you enjoyed looking at them as well!

Lots of Hugs,

Patti

Hello Gals and Pals,

Today I made this card to participate in the challenge set forth by Kraftin Kimmie Stamps. The challenge was to use your Favourite colour!

I thought that would be an easy one. If you ask anyone they will say my favorite colour is purple… Nowadays though I feel like I have a spectrum of hues that change on a daily basis as my favorite colour.

At the end of the day, Purple/ Magenta (ok I am cheating a little by choosing two colours) is the colour I chose for my project.  I got to say that choosing pattern paper and cardstock to match was hard. When I went to find a cardstock to match the pattern paper, I had nothing… But that is ok I just took my Copic and coloured some express it paper to make an instant match! I love this for when I am struggling.

I coloured up Angie By Kraftin Kimmie Stamps as an Homage to my Nana. When my Nana greets us at the door you can usually find her in a fuzzy housecoat… I love this, because it makes her house feel like it has a more relaxed atmosphere.

The question of the week; What is your favorite colour? Maybe it isn’t an easy answer for you too!

Lots of Hugs,
