This is gonna be a long post so I’ll try to be synthetic! Please, if you have any questions, leave them in the comment area below and I’ll be happy to answer you!
My first card features a new Thankful Thoughts stamp set filled with lots of different style and shape sentiments! And you know that sentiment sets are absolutely must have in any crafter’s stash.
On my project I decided to build a stamped background using one of the sentiments from Thankful Thoughts set. To start, I masked a rectangle directly on the card front and repeatedly stamped the sentiment using different shades of orange inks for an ombré effect. Next I die cut and stamped a cute squirrel and a few small elements using new just released Harvest Tails, Newton’s Thanksgiving stamp and die sets and finally colored all the elements with copic markers and assembled everything with a bit of dimension.
As always, I’m leaving you the complete list of all the copic markers used here: E30-E31-E35; squirrel Y21-YR23-YR27-E99; YG01-YG95; YR00-YR04; Y13-Y15-Y17.
Next comes super fun Slothy Coffee stamp set. This cutie will bring a smile onto your faces for sure!
Once die cut the sloth with the coordinating Slothy Coffee Die Set from Strathmore Bristol paper and stamped the coordinating image from Slothy Coffee stamp set with a VersaFine Onyx Black ink, I colored it with a water based markers. At this point I also added a few cups to my design using Cuppa Cactus stamp set and Cuppa Cactus Die sets. Next I die cut a stitched frame using Frames & Flags die set and blended some yellowy-orange tones of Distress inks through Sunscape stencil. Finally, before assembling everything together, I simply stamped the sentiment from the same Slothy Coffee stamp set.
In case you’re interested, I’m leaving you the colors I used on this project.

Finally it’s turn of Tea-Rex stamp and die sets with a super cute dino.
Thinking about the design of this project, I thought it would be fun to recreate a tea bag. I stated with a new Tree Rings stencil and once the embossing paste was dry, I die cut a tag from Tag Times 2 Die Set in the center of the card front. I also use a small top element for my tag from Fancy Edges Tag Die Set and finally gathered the tag and the label with a heat embossed sentiment using a baker twine. Next I die cut using the coordinating dies, stamped and colored a Tea-Rex from Tea-Rex stamp set along with a few small cups from Newton Loves Coffee and Coffee & Wine stamp sets. Please note that these sets don’t have the coordinating dies, but the stamps can be easily fussy cut with a sharp pair of scissors. Assembling this projects I played with different layers and gave some dimension using double or three layers of a foam tape.
And here’s the complete list of all the colors used here.
TOMBOW MARKERS: n.090, n.126, n.243, n.493, n.673, n.752, n.885, n. 946, n.977, n.991, n.992.
