medallion stamp

This is quickly becoming a favorite stamp. It's so simple but elegant. It can also be used for just about any card.
card 1:
ink: summer sun, chocolate chip
paper: summer sun, chocolate chip, white
I stamped the middle circle in chocolate chip and then punched it out. It was then adhered in the center to make it look like a sunflower! I also added chocolate chip ribbon.
Card 2:
ink: old olive
paper: vanilla, old olive
This is a simple card and I haven't decided what I'm going to use it for yet. It can actually go either way. I found some ric rak which matched the old olive perfectly.

Coffee Card set

This is a card set that I made as a gift. It includes 8 cards (2 of each design). All cards were made using the espress yourself stamp set from Stampin up.
Card one: Coffee mug
ink: chocolate chip, ruby red, black, old olive, creamy caramel, versa ink
paper: choloate chip, creamy caramel, white, old olive
I stamped the beans on the chocolate chip with versa ink and them embossed them with clear embossing powder.
Card 2:3 mugs
ink: olive green, pumpkin pie, pacific point, chocolate chip
paper: chocolale chip, olive green, white
I used a CB embossing plate and added green ribbon that matched old olive.
Card 3: 5 mugs
ink: creamy caramel, ruby red, olive green, chocolate chip, versa ink
paper: off white, creamy caramel, old olive
punches: scallop border punch, corner punch
I took a mug and inked it up with versa ink and stamped it on my paper. I then took creamy caramel pastel and applied it to the versa ink to make it look like a coffce mug ring.
Card 4: transparency
ink: black, ruby red, old olive, creamy caramel
paper: transparency, very vanilla, old olive
punch: curly label
I made this card with a transparency. I backed the olive green with very vanilla on the inside so that you wouldn't see the adhesive. I did the same on the inside and the back of the card, with the very vanilla on the inside and the old olive on the back.
The plastic box was purchased but I decorated it to match the card set.

Spider treats

I made these spiders for Halloween. These is a peppermint pattie in the middle. I saw these on splitcoaststampers and had to make them. I also have made a bag topper so I can give them as a Halloween gift. I used gogglie eyes which made them soooo cute!!
Spiders: scallop punch, corner punch, hole punch
paper: black, orange, purple, green (all were scraps!)
