Hey Brewtiful!


Yay! It's the first day of the Spring/Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!!


Graciellie Designs has done it again -- created a SUPER FUN digital stamp set with a fabulously vibrant paper pack to coordinate. AND....just in time for the Spring/Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!

Say hello to:



I know I say this every time, but creating is super easy and quick when you use digital papers --- and just look at how short my supply list is on this colorful card!

Supplies and tools: 


This set was so much fun I couldn't resist creating a second card....


To make my glass of tea look enticing --- I stamped my Versamark Watermark ink pad over it and added one layer of UTEE. The background is painted with distress inks on watercolor paper. I lightly rubbed the walnut stain pad over the painted bottom and look -- it actually resembles sand!

Supplies and Tools for card #2:
  • Brew Like a Boss Digital Stamp Set
  • Prismacolor Pencils
  • Versamark Watermark Ink
  • Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel  (UTEE)
  • Tropical Dies (Sizzix - Tim Hotlz)
  • These colors of Distress Ink (Ranger)
    • Salty Ocean, Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers, Pine Needles, Mowed Lawn, Fossilized Amber, Picked Raspberry, Walnut Stain, Gathered Twigs

Fabulous tropical cards, Esther. Very bright and colorful, so fun! Glad you played with us this week at Krafty Chick Challenge.

Suzanne Reynolds said...

What a great summery feeling, I'm thinking Hawaii, and imagining on the beach. Cards are so colorful. Please join us at Double Trouble, or check us out and see what we're all about. Been fun going through your blog to see many of your cards. My daughter and I went to a tea store this past week and I'm usually a coffee drinker, but got some white raspberry tea, and I think I may change over to tea.
