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?!

  9. 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!!
