The Alley Way Stamps Guest Designer: enjoy


I’m up on The Alley Way Stamps blog today!  

It’s been so much fun guesting for them this month…..I have 2 cards up on the TAWS blog, I’m sharing one of them here on my blog:
cardstock:  strathmore watercolor, stampin’ up basic black  stamps:  the alley way stamps/tri-me  ink:  ranger archival black, target  watercolor tray  other:  dcwv card base, stampin ‘up embossing folder
My card and inspiration.

Wouldn’t you love to work for Starbucks and create the graphics for their gift cards?!  They are always so fun and trendy.  I spotted this one and couldn’t wait to design my take on it.  

Aren’t the stamps perfect?!

I cut a to-go cup out of Strathmore Watercolor paper and fashioned a lid out of Stampin’ up Basic Black cardstock.  

All the stamps are from 

I’m a big fan of premade cardbases, because, I’m lazy.  I tend to pick them up when they are on sale/clearance.  Today’s base is ala DCWV and I think they were 70% off at M’s awhile ago.  The embossing folder I used is by Stampin’ Up, Tiny Triangles.  Is it just me or does the cardbase remind you of: 



Yes, I’m hungry.


Thrilled to have The Alley Way Stamps as one of the Super Sponsors for the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  Read about it HERE and remember, the hop starts Friday, Feb 27th and runs through Friday, March 6th!


So, I’d love it if you’d pop by The Alley Way Stamps blog because I have another card over there!
