Gingersnap Creations challenge is "Hot Beverages." I had remembered seeing a very lovely stamp plate from I Brake For Stamps, so I had no choice but to send Della an order! I also ordered the new Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities, Labels Four and boy are they grand! For this wideload bookmark/tag, I used the two smallest dies! And speaking of coffee, Vicki's current challenge is let's relax and what a better way to relax than with a nice cup of coffee!
Linda's and we did "Colorful Layered Fragments." I would have to say that three times is a charm and ended up with a partial cheat. I say partial, because the background paper is glossy white, but was a leftover from a previous technique. The fragment mug was stamped and inked as directed! Now I did three fragments! The first one was all fine and dandy and then I added the back and was trimming away excess paper, somehow my thumb removed the stamped image! I am a medical marvel! I know it was dry, so I guess it was the lotion on my hands. I was quite shocked to see that, but not as shocked as last weeks ink all over carpet trick. The 2nd fragment, who cares! The coffee cup and saucer was cut out after stamped on yet another technique called "Alcohol Splatter" and I liked the look! And you can't have coffee without the beans, so we embossed and cut them out!
I used Whisped Frames from the Technique Junkies on both die cuts. Now I suppose I should actually do something not craft related and earn my keep! Thank you for stopping by to see what I am up to!
