Fresh Brewed News!

I'm super excited to announce my New Design Team Gig! I'm now with Fresh Brewed Designs!!!

Fresh Brewed Designs

Heather Dennis is the owner of FBD and hand draws the most adorable images! She has rubber stamps, digi stamps and digi paper! It's not just coffee related's all sorts of fun things! AND....just wait till you see the cuteness coming in Feb!! I can't wait to share! EEEEK!!!

For my card, I used 2 stamps. Love Mug is one of the first stamps I got my hands on. I just LOVE IT! The sentiment is from the Skinny Minnie's Coffee Break stamp set

I designed my card for the January Brew of the Month Challenge. I went with the sketch. The challenges run for a NO EXCUSES that you don't have time to play ;) Plus...if there's a prize can you pass that up??! Really!  (no pressure...right? lol)  If I can do a sketch...YOU can do it to! Just give it a'll see.
 I've been doing an Online Card Class called Stenciled. Super fun! I used one of the simple stencil techniques to create the flag banner. So clean and SIMPLE! Ahhhh...Clean & Simple...the perfect blend.

Coloring is done with Copic Markers. I also pulled out some vellum and my dots embossing folder. Touches of glitter...(for Heather!) to add that extra touch of sweetness. The faux stitching around the center panel pulls all images together. White gel pens ROCK!
