Thinking of Coffee!

I was able to squeeze in two cards today as I didn't have a big schedule for once.  The is card was made for our groups' challenge for someone on the Need a Lift forum on SCS.  This is for Sandy and her family. Sandy is a stamper who lives in FL. Florida has had some nasty brush fires and Sandy's home was one of three that burned.  She and her family are safe and just trying to figure things out.  I hope this card will brighten her day.  Our challenge was to use a sketch on Holly's (Toy) blog.  While making this card, I realized that it could qualify for another addition to Sharon's (notimetostamp) challenge. I decided to brush off the dust of some El Cheapo stamps that I have... we all have them! $1 Studio G stamps.  This one, however is quite nice and decorative.  These inexpensive stamps work fine with dye inks but much better and clearer with craft or pigment type inks.  They are fun to play with and at least you never have to worry if any get ruined or damaged! Thanks for looking!

Materials used: Basic Black, white, Blush Blossom, unknown dp, scallop punch, circle punch, blush blossom ink, Brillance Graphite Black, stickles, brads, word window punch

This card is one of my favorites to make.  3x3!  Just so quick and easy to whip up.  I made this for the MFT Ambassador challenge.  The challenge was to make a 3x3 card with a matching envelope.  I used my favorite Tea Time set along with some new dp that I picked up.  In case you don't know, I {heart} coffee!! I am not human in the morning without it!  I think I just may bleed coffee, but my dh says I bleed green instead... (Army)  The main image was colored with Copics and Prismamarkers while I then paper pieced her dress.  I added some ribbon and a few staples and I was done. Hope you have a wonderful coffee/tea break sometime today!! Thanks for looking!!
Materials used: MFT, Flair designs dp, Chocolate Chip cs, Me and my big ideas dp, Kraft cs, ribbon, staples, slit punch
