 i could not resist Tracy's new image, "PinUp Kisses"  Colored with my Copics, and Spectrum Noir Glitter on her bow!  All layers are raised, so this card has alot of dimension.  Do you hate having white foam or foam tape show under dark colors?  I do, but I found a new product, Cool Tac Foam Clear"  LOVE IT!!!  Adds dimension but you can't see anything but your creation.  And its soft so it compresses for easy mailing then pop backs up.  Cardstock is fro Stampin Up, rest from stash.

Paper Players: color challenge

I am so excited to share Stef's, aka Glitterbabe,  Engagemet Ring with you.  I cheated and used her precolored image,   anything to save crafting time, right?  I added shimmer with my Spectrum Noir Glitter Markers. 

 I love shaker cards,  and with the Fuse tool, you can make shaker cards so quickly and not have to worry about getting a good seal so nothing sneaks out. sEquins are from Pretty Posh pink, and stamp is from Stampin Up, Banners.  Stamped in Smokey Slate

I fell in love with a new stamp company, "Mint Owl Studio"  Stamps are cute, stencils and sequins outstanding!

This is their Coffee Craze set, I'm not a coffee fan but the set has "Ice Tea" which is my favorite beverage in the world.

I colored the images with my Copics and actually cut them out by hand.  Paper, ribbon and ink used to stencil is Early Espresso from Stampin Up,  my favorite brown! And I used my Fuse tool to make the shaker, so easy!

Challenges:
Simon Says: Stencil It
Ribbon Girls: Anything Goes with ribbon
Chocolate, Coffee, Cards: Circles/Square

Although I am not a bee fan, I do love bee stamps any anything with a honeycomb effect.  This stamp set is from Reverse Confetti, the die is from Stampin Up.  I was so excited when I found yellow and black M&M's at a store in DeKalb, Illinois. I found the jar at Target years ago on clearance,  now I wish I bought more.
