ED006-Coffee Cafe

You can almost smell the coffee aroma from this card!!  Actually you can since I used a coffee scented ink....
Elemental Doodles  Plate 006 "Coffee Cafe"
Papers by DCWV "Safari Chic" matstack
Brown and black cardstock from my stash
Diecut shapes by Nestabilities
Brown dye inkpad by Ranger "Vintage Java Fizz"
Black Memories dye ink

I cut and layered the designer papers onto a black base card leaving slight borders. I stamped the small cup on one paper and the "wake up" verse on another.   A diecut Nestie stamped with "Java" was layered on top.  Simple and quick, just my style!

ED010-Autumn Splendor

This card features a beautiful outline and fill in combination. I used dark green ink for the outline of the leaf. Then I took my markers and scribbled on the outside of the solid leaf stamp with green and the inside with a grayish lighter green, leaving space between the two. I misted the stamp with a spritzer spray bottle and stamped the inside. I love how blotchy it looks, just like the leaves all over my driveway.

For the text, I took the saying "Autumn is a second spring when every leaf's a flower," and just inked the word "Autumn" with my marker. Since they are clear stamps, it is so easy to place the word exactly where I wanted it under the leaf. I used the whole text statement on the inside of the card.

You can click on the card for a close-up view.

Hope you enjoy --- cat >^..^<

Praise for our DT

We just wanted to take a moment to acknowledge our DT members. Ya'll are doing a GREAT job with creating projects using our images and accessories. Thank you all so much. I am amazed every day at the wonderful and creative projects you all have come up with.

Our shimmer spray not only has MORE shimmer than any other spray on the market........but it is also SCENTED!!!!! It's a's shimmers (a LOT).....AND, it is available with SCENT!!!!! So now you can add sparkle, shine, color and scent all at one time to your projects.

Scent-A-Mist is available in 8 colors to start with (we have many more to come very soon). Available in 2 sizes (1/4 ounce travel size and 2 oz refill size).

Below is a color chart that one of our DT members (Paula) put together for us. As you can imagine, capturing the true color on camera is not easy with products that are translucent and shimmery. We will post a picture of the actual product very soon so you can see the packaging.

We have a TON of new projects that our DT has submitted to us. We are currently working on getting them all posted to our blog and website.
