Simon Says Stamp Stars

I just loved the theme for this weeks challenge
 where they are seeing stars. As I did not want to make a
Christmas card, I looked at my favorite coffee
stamps and came up with this idea.

I started with printing the words on white paper
and cut it out to size for the square 5,25x5,25 inch kraft
colored card. Next I cut the distressed doily from sizzix
by Tim Holtz and colored it with vintage distress oxide ink.

Then I took out the coffee stamps from Concored & 9th
called Let's Chat to make this cup and spoon.

For the cream i embossed the circle with white seafoam 
embossing powder and for the star I made a template, so I could
color it with vintage distress oxide ink.

The spoon is stamped on silver paper and a tiny
star is added on top of the spoon.
Thank you for looking
ánd have a latte creative day!

Create with TLC Vintage Summer Blog Hop

Welcome to the
I hope you arrived here from
and see what awesome art she made.
If you happen to loose your way,
you can always go back to the Create with TLC Blog,
where you find all 14 paricipants.
You don't want to miss any blog,
for on all blogs you can find FREEBIE images.

Now let's show you what I came up with:
When i started making mycards, I had a slight
printer problem.....everything came out sepia!
Needed to order new color refills, but that took time,
so as this is a Vintage Summer hop, I thought it
was just a fun coincidence and I decided to use them
for my cards.
This card is build up in layers. I was thinking
of the old fashioned photograpers, where one
poses for a picture and then it is behind
a cut out shape. 
Here is the colored image for you to grab and make your own 
cards with. Just click with your right mouse button
and save it to your computer.
I cut out the shape from kraft colored cardstock
and embossed it with a wavy shape, that I colored 
with vintage photo distress ink. The sentiment is also from 
Create with TLC and you find it as another freebie below.
So I decorated the card with paper flowers, a ribbon
and some cut out shells. I colored the shells with 
glitter glue.

For my second card I wanted a little more color and 
for this I  used a few stencils and distress oxides inks.
The sun is a die and the sentiment is one I found in my
Create with TLC sentiment folder and perfect for this card.
At the bottom of the card some raffia is tied around
and a flower added. Love the powder pink color for
vintage cards.

Yeah!! my cartidges arrived yesterday and now I can print the 
Summer image in color. I decided to make some ATC's with it.
So I printed the image small size (that is the advantage of
digital images, you can use them anysize!)

This is card 1:
atc's are 3,5x2,5 inch, so it is small
even though you do not see this on the picture.
The sentiment is another oldie from
Create with TLC, the seahorse is by

For card 2 I used the shell stamp by
Michael Strong and added cute little 
sticky pearls. I cut up the sentiment
for a more decorative look.

Here - on card 3 - I used the complete sentiment.
Blue baker's twine because of the sea
and the fish stamp from Michael Strong
is stamped on shrinky dink, so now it
is small enough for the atc.

Well enough ideas I think for you to use the
great image and sentiments from Create with TLC.

Not enough? Go to 
and see what she has come up with
and what freebies she has for you.

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!

Vintage Botany Plaid

It is USE PLAID on the Simon Says Stamp blog
this week and here is my version with
Club Scrap's July Vintage Botany stamps and papers.

For my background I made the plaid with this stripes
stencil from the Tim Holtz collection. With brown and green
I created the background panel.
After making the background I stamped with the
rubber stamps on top of the plaid background.
The  flowers at the center of the card are colored 
with pencil.
This posteroid woodsie button came with the kit.
I used a sentiment from the Club Scrap Secculent kit
that was small enough to fit on the button.
Ribbon from my stash.

Starting the background with the flowers on the light purple

The butterfly is stamped on the lighter paper

The butterfly is cut out with the matching
metal die. The circles on the top where punched
out with a 3/4 circle punch, so you see the purple.
Finishing of the butterfly with some sticky gemstones.

a die cut sentiment.
