The new release is 10% off until September 9th!!!

Here's a peek at the new sets.....Oh my Goodness, yes, it's a brand new release by the super awesome Becca Cruger!!!!!!!



A super BIG shout out to the FABulous Becca for such a spectacular new set!

...and check out Shery's Sketchy Coffee Cups:


I'm so thankful and grateful that I was asked to be a guest designer...evidently you all know how much I love my coffee!!!!!

Here's how I was inspired:

cardstock:  recollections/110/white, papertrey ink kraft, stampin' up gumball green  stamps:  stamplorations sketchy coffee cups & literary caffeine-ations  ink:  ranger archival black  other:  kuretake gansai tambi, mama elephant/basic set creative cuts

I absolutely knew what I was going to do when I saw the Cup Runneth Over sentiment...gotta love the Kuretake Gansai Tambi!  I'm such a fan of mixed font sentiments and that coffee cup <-- love.

Next up is a card that I had in mind especially for Becca and Shery and their mixed media style:


cardstock:  recollections/110/white, impress stampin' up basic black, chalkboard card base stamps:  stamplorations sketchy coffee cups & literary caffeine-ations  ink:  ranger archival black  other:  kuretake gansai tambi, pretty pink posh/stitched duo 2, spellbinders circles

I'm super happy with how this one turned out...love the random stamping!  I should have taken a photo of the process.  My acrylic stamp block is almost the same size of the stitched rectangle so I placed the images randomly on the block and stamped!  It worked perfectly!  It's a great way to showcase just a handful of the coffee cups.  The sentiment <-- perfect, eh?!

I can't wait to see what the other gals have designed...seriously...who doesn't love coffee?!

Please pop over to the STAMPlorations blog for tons of inspiration!
