So Much COFFEE!!!!

I have had the sassiest coffee stamp set from Ink Road Stamps for about two years and never played with it until now. I like that it comes with sentiments and an option to swap out what each mug says. In addition there are quite a few options for coffee drinks. There is a mug, paper hot coffee cup and once for iced. These are the cards I created with this fun set!

The above cards were created with die cuts from Stamps of Life. Though I am not affiliated with them, they have some of my favorite die cuts for card making in the industry.

These two cards were created with one die cut set from Ink Road stamps on Rinea Foiled Paper that I used alcohol ink to create the background.

Please check out the video I created demonstrating how to color these sassy coffee drinks in here.

What’s your favorite coffee based drink? Tell me in the comments! I like straight up iced coffee with nothing in it. I am hardcore like that!

Rad Cards!

Simon Hurley’s February 2020 release with Ranger is a lot of fun! Between the birds, dogs and nod to high school doodling I could not help but to create 25 samples and 5 videos. Then there is the ink! It is not only gorgeous and bright, but also blendable and easy to work with for a variety of techniques.

Bleach It

Don’t let the title fool you — no bleach is required. This technique can be used with just water. The results are awesome!

Here are the samples of this technique as promised in the video. The Bundle for this is here.

Tone on Tone

Super simple technique with stunning results.

The following samples I created as I was discovering this technique and playing with the new stamps. The bundle for these samples is here.

Pull Apart Backgrounds

Timber is a fun new background stamp in which you get to decide how many trees you want to create. You can have a forest or a single tree. Color them different or all the same. The possibilities for this stamp is endless! It pairs beautifully with the new bird set. The bundle for these samples is here.

Multi-Purpose Ink

Like I stated previously the new ink is full of possibilities.

Here are the sample cards I created while discovering all the amazing uses for this ink! The bundle used to create these samples can be found here.

Stencil Craze

I have to confess that when I saw the scene building stencil I was a little scared, but it ended up being my favorite! I also created my favorite card with it.

Here is my very favorite card:

Here are a few more samples created with the new stencils:

Your Turn!

Now that you have seen all the new Simon Hurley line, which one is your favorite? Tell me in the comments! I am torn between the Birds, Dogs and the scene builder stencil. What’s yours?
