Clean and simple coffee card

Good morning,

I am popping in with a quick and easy card which I made for the Newton’s Nook Inky Paws Challenge #31.

First I cut a smoke grey cardstock with a SSS swirly background and then with a stitched rectangle die as a base. Then I chose 3 matching cardstock from my stash and die cut a strip with a PPP border die from each. For the tag I used heavy weight white cardstock and my favourite SSS tag die. The bow is die cut also with a PPP die.


On the tag I stamped Newton with a big coffee, masked his bottom and stamped some coffee beans with black ink. The sentiment is also from the same set. I coloured the images with Shinhan alcohol markers and assembled my card.


A few sequins, glossy accent and wink of stella shimmer finished off this clean card. I used a gemstone for the middle of the bow.


This was the sketch I used:

I hope you like my card, I will run now to have my first morning coffee.

Have a nice day,




Beach scene with YNS

Hello again,

It is my second post for today, as I made a card for Your Next Stamp Sketch Challenge #38 and I didn’t want to miss the submission deadline 😀

I wanted a simple card with not many layers this time, so I masked off the sky, beach and the sun and sponged them with distress inks. Then I stamped the palms, the coconut drink and the camera on smooth white cardstock, coloured them with alcohol markers and fussy cut them out. For the island I took a strip of kraft cardstock and added some dots for the sand with my Shinhan markers.


After gluing everything in place, I added some waves with a Sakura glitter pen, a little sparkle with Wink of Stella to the sun and the camera and a bit of glossy accent on the straw, lemon slice and some parts of the cam too. I also stamped 2 birds from a Lawn Fawn set to make the scene complete. The sentiment is from the same YNS stamp set (Vacation Phoebe).


I hope you like my summer scene and got inspired. The challenge sketch was the following:


See you soon,



Stenciling with glitter paste


Long time since my last post, I have troubles with downloading pictures. Today I wanted to share a card I made for SSS Wednesday Challenge Stencil it. Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog

I recently took the Clear&Sheer Online Card Class, which was gorgeous and full of inspiration. That clearly had an effect on my card.

First, I took a piece of acetate and used the MFT sunray stencil with some Bobunny sugar glitter paste mixed with squeezed lemonade and mustard seed distress inks. I applied the paste with a palette knife and let it dry for long. Meanwhile I cut a white cardbase to have a half inch flap on the front only and used the remaining cardstock with a cloud border die from Mama Elephant 2 times and I also cut a strip of white cardstock to be able to sandwich my acetate sheet in-between.


The sentiment is from The Greeting Farm Magical Friends stamp set, stamped with Altenew Mango Smoothie ink 4 times (the Misti makes it so easy). Then I glued the sunshine die cut from SSS which I cut from some shiny black packaging – I love to recycle when I make a card.


A tiny strip of black cardstock on the top and a few SSS sequins and my card was finished. I love how transparent and shiny the sunrays are due to the coloured glitter paste.
