Sentiment stamped in Enchanted Evening by PTI. I added die cut stars from Spellbinders using glitter paper from American Crafts. That is little Navy Candi Dot to finish the card off. All the die cut stitching is from Little Inkers Dies.

PTI Stenciling with Texture Paste MIM #254

Papertrey Ink Make It Monday #254
Stenciling With Texture Paste
I decided to give this one try ... because well I actually have the paste I thought well now is as good as time to use it (or lose it because it is going to turn into cement!). In fact I made my own stencil out of the Cover Plate Peony Die. Just  cut it up in some card stock, a bit of taping, and turned the paper around so I did not break the petals between. It worked.
I definitely got to get some real stencils but I like flowers mostly so I will just wait for some other designs as they come out. The texture paste grabs color so easy, and was even easier to work with than I thought!

Ideas Start With Coffee

Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop
So I picked some bright happy summer coffee cups for those chats to come with new plans while drinking that favorite beverage! I used Stamps and dies from Verve Stamps sooo cute.
 To help my coffee "pop" it was die cut in brown card stock, then I die cut it in  some yellow fun foam. I left some of pieces in the letters to add more color. The pattern paper was then die cut at the corner, then trimmed up. Glued the card stock word to the yellow foam and inserted the word with liquid adhesive at the top of the word. The entire panel was placed on foam to match the height then adhered to the Summer Sunrise colored card base by PTI.
