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,


Question: Are you addicted to coffee? Other than Ice Capps I actually do not drink Coffee much.

My Answer: Other than Ice Capps I actually do not drink Coffee much. I am addicted to coke cola though so I get my caffeine buzz that way!




Oh My Gosh, I started a blog!!!

Hello World!!!

I really don’t know how to start an intro about me blog post, so I thought I would skip that for today and think of some interesting factoids about myself for the next post.

Last month I created a project inspired by my darling niece Sofia’s love for all things elephants. Of course as soon as I started working on her card she quickly changed her mind, and decided she loves puppies. I guess at 3 attention spans are limited.

I knew I wanted to make something special for her… a bit more “artsy” than my traditional style, so I turned to the ever distracting Youtube for inspiration. This led me to Laura Bassen ( She used a fun technique called Watercolour Smooshing.  I wanted to try this technique by adding white embossed hearts onto watercoulour paper, then I smooshed Tim Holtz Distress Inks onto a transparency and added water for an easy whimsical watercolour background. I added this too cute stamp from Kraftin Kimmie’s called “Dream Big”, which I coloured with copic markers.

I finished the card up with some homemade epoxy dots to add some matching embellishments, and then added it to my grey cardstock.

I decided to name the card set “Safari Sofia” after my niece.


Thanks for ogling!
