I am sooooo excited to announce that I am now designing for my friend, Selena who runs the Scrapmobile here in Calgary, Alberta and has an online store you can shop from!! Her blog is Scrapendipity Way Of Life  and you can also follow her on Facebook at the Scrapendipity page to find out all the new and exciting things that are going on!! You can find me posting here and there every Tuesday!

This week I wanted to share a card set I made featuring the Tim Holtz coffee blueprint stamps. I coloured them with Prismacolor Markers, which are alcohcol based, and gel pens. After colouring my images I cut them out with Spellbinders Nestabililities dies and my Cuttlebug and then layered them on some papers from the Echo Park Made From Scratch Collection and some Gorjuss Girl paper.

I wanted to make a coordinated set of greeting cards that my daughter could give as part of a teacher gift at the end of the school year. Holy cow, that's coming up soon!

Inside and Envelope - 
I stamped a Tim Holtz sentiment stamp inside using Faded Jeans Distress Ink and then used a CTMH coffee stain stamp to add details. The sentiment on the envelope is from the same CTMH set. I still wanted to keep the inside and envelope fairly clean and simple, but wanted to tie it together with the 'coffee' theme. And, of course, I had to add a little Distress Ink ;)
