On Sunday night PaperPretties released two new stamps in conjunction with their Pajama Party, I attended the party but I did not create cards for the challenges. I wasn't feeling up to stamping on Sunday night, I am feeling much better but now I don't have time to stamp! Christie picked the newest Cutie Pie for PaperPretties Sunday night as well, and although I entered this round, I was no selected, but don't worry I will keep on trying! I thought I would share with you the three cards I created using the coffee set that PaperPretties released in late February.These cards I created a backaground paper for by stamping a pattern from the coffee bean pile that comes with this stamp set. I had a lot of fun turning the coffee beans in different directions to get various looks to the paper I was creating. I colored all parts of these images with Copic markers, then I went over the sugar bowls and the coffee pots with a Spica clear glitter pen...I love this thing! I don't know if you can see them, but these pens really create a nice shine to a fun image. I created the last card before I created the yellow coffee pot card, there was something about the coral that I didn't like so I tried a similar card with a differnt color to try and get better results. I like the layout of the coral card more, but the colors of the yellow card...oh well, you can't win them all.
