Happy, Happy Wednesday to you all! I am STRESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSED!!!! LOL---yikes, so much still to get done today before I head to CHA tomorrow. And now they are calling for snow today---omg are the weather gods trying to KILL me! I am so sick and tired of cruddy weather and if my flight is delayed I am going to LAY AN EGG I tell ya, LOL---I have got to be in LA by Friday morning to teach my class. ACKKKKKKKKKKKK! This is the only thing about CHA being in January--you never know what the weather is going to be like here, terribly stressful that's for sure. So please pray with me that we end up with mostly rain and NO snow 'kay? I seriously am going to need to be drugged on this flight--poor Marti--AND we have a layover in Denver of all places. Are you kidding me?
If I make it to LA in one cohesive piece I'm going to kiss the ground I swear---Marti will take a pic of me doing it, LOL! I will be posting sporadically while I'm gone so please make sure to check in for new projects, new challenges and NEWSIES from CHA :)
Today I have a vintage, shabby-chic project to share with you all! I am a guest designer for In Style Stamps for 3 months so I am sharing my project with you today for the month of January. This fun lil' digi image is called "Small Cup" and I was imagining it filled to the brim with some yummy raspberry hot cocoa---mmmmmmm good! Perfect for this freezing weather we're having right now! Perfect card for a friend to let her know you are thinking of her! I also did this card for this week's SCS Color Challenge CC305 which was to use a light, medium & dark pink and one neutral color--I have more neutral than pinks but I did use all the colors, LOL!
I really enjoy using digi stamps because they are so convenient, easy to resize and easy to store. In Style Stamps has lots of great digis for you to use too--see them all HERE! I created a digi stamp faq sheet HERE awhile ago if you are new to digi images.
My papers are from K&Company--I love the vintage feel they give to my project. I distressed a lot of the edges with my Zutter Distress It Tool and then inked the edges. The center panel was made by using my MS border punch on both sides of my cream cs, then ran it thru a Cuttlebug folder (swiss dots) and inked the edges. A bow, some Prima flowers and small tag finish this card off.
Here is the "Small Cup" up close---I colored it with Copics and then added Stickles to the steam & cute heart on the front. I used my oval SB's nesties to cut the image and matting out & inked all the edges with my Inkssentials Blending Tool. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm...mmmm..............good!
Have a wonderful day---and hopefully when you hear from me next I will be in LA safe & sound for a few days!
