Successful Woman


Woohoo! Remember how I told you about the order I placed with Carrie owner of My Little Stamp Shack last Wednesday...well I got my stamps on Friday and this was one of the sets I ordered from Impression Obsession, called Smell the Coffee (this was the set I used my 40% off coupon for). I made this card for the Limited Supply Challenge posted on Friday, to make a long and tall card, this card measures 4 x 8 1/2. I used Versamark to ink the image and then embossed it with copper ep. I used my SU! chalks (really rust) to lightly color the coffee mugs. I also embossed the sentiment with copper ep. I used my cuttlebug and the negative inking technique to emboss the vanilla panel. For the bottom detail I used 2 rows of red sticky tape to adhere micro beads that I have been hoarding for an embarrassing amount of time. Simple and fabulous and I just love that sentiment! Click on the picture for a closer view. I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend, see you tomorrow.
Thanks for stamping by!
