Your Next Stamp October New Release Preview: hello coffee






Hello!  I'm back with a couple


projects!

I'm super excited to sneak peek a fun new Scribbled Alpha set!

In my first project, I've teamed it up with the Large Ink Splatter set:

cardstock:  stampin' up night of navy  stamps:  your next stamp/large ink splatter/scribble alpha  ink:  fresh ink navy, a muse studio toffee

I upcycled a fruit clamshell package!  I've been saving some here and there because we are such huge fruit-a-tarians in this household.

I stamped directly onto a Simple Stories, A Charmed Life, 4x6 journal card.

TIP:  I gravitate towards supplies that help me stamp straight'ish - LOL

Here's the inside:


This will be sent to a lucky coffee drinker!

Next up is a clean and simple, tall and skinny card:


cardstock:  pti/black, strathmore watercolor  stamps:  your next stamp scribbled alpha/awesome journal words  ink:  fresh ink black tea/mojito  other:  dcwv cork, circle punch, crop-a-dile, watercolors

I did a very light watercolor wash on the tag and hit it with the heat gun.  When I was absolutely sure that it was dry (patience grasshopper), I finished up with my stamping.

I even stamped the interior:


In an effort to design more postal friendly cards, I'm going to be making a ton of this particular size, 3.5x x 5.5.  It adds some fun interest to the design.

Make sure you pop over to the 


for more inspiration!

The New Release Blog Hop starts tomorrow!
