Coffee Anyone?

Hello Junkies!

The Crafty Nurse here with more inspiration using the February Technique Junkies release.  I am a coffee JUNKIE!  Starbucks to be specific. I’ve also found a really cool treat called “Topperfino.” They are little chocolate discs that you put in your coffee that are actually pieces of art.  They are only 25 calories and so beautiful to look at.  The best thing is it combines both my loves, art and coffee.

Now on to my card.  I used “Drinking and Thinking SD656 with the  Acrylic Gesso Tutorial from the Artistic Effects CD.  To add a little pizazz, I added book paper under the gesso, then stamped my image.  In addition, I took “Kona” Velvet  by Art Anthology and framed my stamped image.

I liked the versatility of this stamp so didn’t even give her a sentiment.  Pick up a cup of coffee, add a Topperfino and stop by Technique Junkies to pick up some great supplies!

I hope you’ve been enjoying some of the inspiration using the February release.

Happy Crafting!

The House That Stamps Built: Photo Inspiration

It’s the third Wednesday of the Month and time for The House That Stamps Built photo inspiration challenge.  For February, the design team chose a love themed scene.  As with all our challenges, let the photo be your guide and please use your imagination.  For example, just pick out a color, a shape, or even use just one element that you are attracted to.  It’s all about creativity and fun.

You have until Tuesday, February 23rd to enter for a chance to win a $25.00 gift certificate at Repeat Impressions.  If you use a Repeat Impressions stamp, you’ll get an extra entry!

Here’s the inspiration chosen by our Rock Stars:

Photo Inps

When I looked at the picture I knew that I had to use watercolors as a starting point to create the feel of the photo.  I continued to add layers until I got the depth I was looking for.  For the trees, I used Repeat Impressions “Lg Pine Tree 2719-K” stamped in archival ink in case I wanted to add more color, which I did.  The sentiment is from the “Hello Cling” and captures to scene for me.  I finished off with a few recollections gems.
