The Cutting Cafe Shop Birthday kit Card

I just received this gorgeous box of The Cutting Cafe Shop's stamps, papers, and goodies!! I jumped right in and played with almost everything. This is their Birthday Party Fun  stamp set which is divine, HERE. I colored the cake with my copics, E 37, E39, BG45, BG10, and C1 for shadow. I used Blue 2 in 1 glue for under the silver glitter, and added Crystal Lacquer to top the turquoise icing. Using some of the Echo Park Party Time 6x6 paper pad, I stamped the HB directly onto the white then stamped again onto the EP Party time paper, and fussy cut it out and popped it up with Tombow pop dots. Using the Cutting Cafe Shop's Birthday Party background stamp set, with Clearsnap yellow ink onto turquoise paper and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The red ribbon that came with the kit, seemed perfect to pull it all together with some pieces of the Echo Park Party Time Ephemera pack. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Graphic 45 Cityscapes album

Here's an album by Pine Cone Press using Graphic 45 Cityscapes papers, ribbons, and Liquitex bronze paint for the spine. Hope you enjoy the inspiration. I don't have pictures to put into it yet but am hoping to go to these cities. I put the album together with all the papers but with Pine Cone Press instructions. I took liberty on some of the pages such as the front cover being fussy cut and popped up. I also chose to paint the spine bronze as well. The size of photo will be dictated by the center of each of the postcard pieces, and smaller pics as well.
Challenges: Paper Crafter's Corner Magazine
The magazine inspiration makes me think of all the places we want to go.  In that, I thought of making an album for all the mini vacations my hubby and I will travel. Can't wait! If it doesn't count because it is from a kit, I didn't know.

30 Day Coloring Challenge by Kathy Racoosin

I am coloring along with Kathy Racoosin's 30 day coloring challenge that started on July 5th. So with that in mind, I wanted to match this week's Paper Crafter's Corner Magazine Monday Challenge #151 with the vintage cover, and purples of the background. It also had flowers along a fence. I tried to find one of my stamps that was like that with a house or something, and came across this stamp (that I loved but had never used) that made me think of the picture because of the flowers and instead of the fence, the bracket surrounding her. I used two copics per color. Fussy cut out the image and added it to patterned paper and a ready made card.

DCWV June Stackaholic Layout using Watercolor Stack

Siesta Key Layout was a breeze with the beautiful papers of the stack called Watercolor. I did use a Burlap stack turquoise piece as the mat of my pic as well. Some of the flamingo circles are popped up with 3L Adhesive.
    This is my family at sunset on Siesta Key Beach. I am always using my tripod for these nice pics of the WHOLE family!
This won for the 2016 June Stackaholic Layout sketch challenge. Seen here

Summer Coffee Lover's Card

Clearsnap have fabulous products and these are some that I used to make my card. I used the Smooch Spritz in 2 colors to spray the doily and white flower. Also embossed the tablecloth with the Mix'd Media Inx, and clear embossing powder. Used Webster's Pages pattern paper for the card base, to match the coral colors of the cup.  Stamp is from The Cat's Pajamas Stamps.  I am entering my card in the
Clear Snap June Challenge-Used 2 Smooch Spritz's from Donna Salazar's set as seen above, on doily and white flower. Also, used her Mix'd Media Inx embossed on the card itself, as the "tablecloth".
