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!

How strange that they picked you as GD for this release.....LOL!! You and coffee cards are a perfect pairing. These are both gorgeous. Love the simpleness of the first one, beautiful colours. And the fact you randomly put the stamps on your blog and stamped, your a genius. Must try that technique myself, would be quite fun. You rocked this release!!
