Family and Home

The design team at myStampBOX is featuring stamped projects about family and home on the blog today.

For my card, I used the Lovely Houses and Wishing You Sunshine sets. I pulled out some gel markers that I have had forever and never used and colored in the images. 
Head over to the to myStampBOX blog to see the creations by all the design team members.

Enjoy Your Latte!

Here are some more cards created with myStampBOX stamps. I had fun breaking out the Enjoy Your Latte! set and pairing the set with some products from our product partner Canvas Corp. Aren't these papers and the canvas and burlap tags perfect for the Enjoy Your Latte! set?

On this card, I stamped and embossed with copper embossing powder on this card for a different look. The embellished envelope is perfect for a gift card from your favorite coffee store.

For this card, I put a couple of colors of tan/brown paint on a piece of chipboard, then added three layers of Ultra Thick Embossing Powder. When the last layer of Ultra Thick Embossing Powder was still hot, I stamped the coffee cup image and let it sit a few minutes until the embossing powder had set up. This technique makes a nice focal point embellishment for your project. I adhered the chipboard to the canvas tag with some foam adhesive and layered two fussy cut pieces of the steam stamp behind the chipboard. All this card needed now was a simple sentiment.
This card is my favorite of the three. I stamped the coffee ring and cup on kraft cardstock, then randomly stamped just the coffee ring after stamping off a little of the ink.
The coffee beans are set with black embossing powder, fussy cut, then colored with a brown pencil; I then applied Glossy accents. To give a little dimension to the card, I overlapped the two pieces and adhered the top piece with foam dots.
These last two cards also qualify for the Moxie Fab World Canvas, Cork and Burlap Challenge.

Square Punch Challenge

I created this card for the Square Punch Challenge on the Moxie Fab World Blog. I punched the blue checked squares with my square punch then cut them in half to form arrows.

Country Pumpkin Chowder

The Jillibean Soup Country Pumpkin Chowder is one of my current favorites. I love the rich colors and the die cut and sticker sheets for easy embellishing. Here are a couple projects created for Cord Scrapbook Studio with this collection.

Take A Hike

I recently had some layouts posted on the Cord Scrapbook Studio blog featuring Simple Stories Take A Hike Collection. These papers were perfect for some photos from a recent trip to Glacier and Yellowstone National Park. The Simple Stories collections make scrapping so quick and easy with the page, strip, and photo elements.

Acorn Hollow

I am quite behind in updating my blog. Today on Cord Scrapbook Studio blog, I have some projects using Little Yellow Bicycle Acorn Hollow. Love this beautiful fall collection.
For the flower cluster, I used some foam adhesive to give the cluster a little depth.
I thought these photos of this cute chipmunk were perfect with the acorn paper. It was so nice of the chipmunk to pose for me on the side of a trail in Glacier National Park.
