Friends Are Like Sea Shells Challenge Card

Just look at how this card shines!! That is all because of the new Stampin' Up! Pearlescent Specialty paper. The Sand and Sea Suite can be found on pages 40-42 of the new mini catalog and eventhough the nautical theme does not normally speak to me this suite really stood out. So much so that I could not wait until my March card class to play with it.

Shadow Stamping Technique And The New Blender Brushes.

When I received the Enjoy the Moment in my package of OnStage gifts from Stampin' Up! I knew I wanted to do a card with the shadow stamping technique. What I didn't know was that these blending brushes would be a game changer!

You’re Top Shelf Card

We just finished up my "masculine" card class. Why the "s you may ask? Well I called it a masculine card class because the designs and colors were definately not flowery and pink but honestly the person who is going to get this card will be a female. So drink up ladies I like manly drinks like bourbon and I am not afaid to say it!

Consume Coffee Card

My day starts EVERYDAY with Erie Island Roasters (love love love local companies) Jamaican Me Crazy Coffee only it is a max of 2 cups for me! Comment below with what is getting you going in the dark of the morning.

I see this card being sent to all kinds of people- men, women, coworkers, friends and family- maybe a stranger at the coffee shop! It can even be given for all kinds of reasons like a birthday card with a sampler of fun coffees (there are crazy fall k-cup boxes out right now!), a thank you card for that coworker who saved the day when you were a cup short of a fully functioning brain, or how about a funny congrats card for new parents- we all know they are gonna need LOTS of coffee!
