Thanks a Latte - Tiddly Inks Design Team Call

So I am totally jumping out of my comfort zone and treading into scary territories. One of my favorite digital stamp designers is doing a design team call and I figured it wouldn't hurt to try, so here this is my entry post. The challenge is to make a card using your favorite Tiddly Inks Stamp. Let me tell you, it was hard to pick a favorite but I decided to use "thanks a latte" (you can purchase your own copy here at I chose this image because it makes me think of one of my besties from college who shares my great love for coffee as well as crafting. She has since moved to Guam as a mission school teacher and I only see her once a year in the summer. I think I will send her this card after a bit.
So here is the card I made using this delightful image. IMG_20150418_203027
I colored it with my favorite method of coloring, Prismacolor Pencils and odorless mineral spirits. Since the image made me think of my friend, I tried to color it to depict us sitting at one of our favorite coffee places. The girl on the left is supposed to represent my friend, and the girl on the right is supposed to represent me.  These are the colors I used.
For the girl on the left:
Skin: PC928 (Blush Pink) - PC1085 (Peach Beige) - PC927 (Lt. Peach) - PC1092 (Nectar)
Hair: PC997 (Beige) - PC914 (Creme) - PC942 (Yellow Ochre) - PC943 (Burnt Ochre)
Clothes: PC1099 (Espresso) PC931 (Dark Purple)
For the girl on the Right:
Skin: PC1083 (Putty Beige) - PC927 (Lt. Peach) - PC939 (Peach) - PC928 (Blush Pink)
Hair: PC1080 (Beige Sienna) - PC1081 (Chestnut) - PC937 (Tuscan Red)
Clothes: PC930 (Magenta) - PC1068 (10% French Grey)
For the Rest:
Chairs: PC905 (Aquamarine) - PC949 (Silver)
Table Cloth: PC905 (Aquamarine) - PC941 (Lt. Umber)
Cups: PC918 (Orange) - PC1070 (30% French Grey) - PC910 (True Green)
Here is a shot of the inside: I like leaving a large blank space so one could write a personal message. Sometimes I would put a scripture or inspirational saying, today I chose something about coffee.

Sasayaki Glitter Christmas Shaker Card

Hi Friends! Today I am sharing a card using an image I had the privilege of coloring for the Sasayaki Glitter Digital Stamps Nov. 1st New Release.  I couldn't wait to color this image us as I had inspiration for what kind of card I would make before I had even printed the image to color. I love those AH HA moments.
This was my second attempt at a shaker card. I am still trying to get the technique down without getting sequins and glitter stuck on the foam that raises the shaker layers. But, I thought this turned out really well for a second attempt. Here is a close up of my colored image. I colored the image with my Prismacolors using the pencils themselves as the blending agent on Canson Mi Teintes white paper. The Merry Christmas Sentiment came from a friend of mine from a Kit and Clowder Facebook Card Swap. Let me Tell you, I am so thankful for Alyce and Kit and Clowder. I look forward to all the coloring classes and group support you get from being apart of her group!

Julia Spiri Scalloped Circle Easel Card

Hi All! Today I am sharing a project I made using this "Mask Girl" stamp from Julia Spiri's Digital Stamp Shop. I used to not be into the color purple, but over the last few years, it has really grown on me, and I thought purple would be just fantastic on this image. 
I colored this girl with my Spectrum Noir alcohol pens then I accented it with stickles glitter.  The card base is from another project I'm working on and will hopefully share with you all in the near future.  The lace and ribbons and green stick-on gems are all random finds from our local Walmart. and I accented with some Mulberry roses from Hobby Lobby as well as a couple handmade roses from your's truely.  Here's a little closer shot of the card and image.
I am entering my image in the following challenges: Julia Spiri Challenge Blog #25 Anything Goes with a Twist of Tic Tac Toe Addicted to Stamps Challenge Blog #134 Lots of Layers + a Stamp Crafting when we can #130 - No Square Cards

Demera Bashful Fae Scalloped Easel Card

Hi friends!  Today I'm sharing yet another card I made with my Scalloped Easel SVG Template that I designed this week. Keep looking later this week for more info on how you can get that SVG for free.  For this card I used a freebie image from the Faery Inks Facebook group. I believe she is called Demera Bashful Fae. If you just LoVE this image check out more from the Faery Inks Shop. You can also join the Faery Ink Facebook Group as well.

One of my favorite parts about the Easel Cards is that they make the cards more like gifts than cards. I love to accent them with tons of embellishments as well. This one I acc noted the images with a variety of pink papers and fake daisies and a couple of my handmade roses, as well as some burlap and lace.
I colored the image with my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Pens. I am still very much getting the hang of coloring with alcohol pens, but I am pleased with the way she turned out.  I am super excited about sharing my SVG with everyone so keep checking…
