Not My Cup of Tea – Clean and Simple Challenge #672

Lisa is hosting this week’s CAS challenge and she wants us to feature our favorite drinks. Tea has always been my favorite. I’ve been drinking it since I was a kid–several cups a day. So I went searching the internet for a fun tea joke and found this one.

This is made with my very own font that I designed using calligraphr.com.  If you’d like to use this on your cards just right click on the image and save it to your computer.  If you use it, I’d love to see it, so please tag me @cardsbyjennifrann and #thestampingactuary.

Tacos Fall Apart – Featured Stamper #779

Today’s Featured Stamper is leslielarkin. Leslie has such a wonderful gallery, I wanted to CASE all her fun cards. She uses DSP so well. I couldn’t decide between using Witty-Cisms by leslielarkin at Splitcoaststampers and Whale Done by leslielarkin at Splitcoaststampers so I combined the two. 

       

You know I can’t resist a good pun, so they both spoke to me.  I started by stamping black and white tacos with little pink cheeks to make my own DP. Then I stamped and colored the focal taco. I chose to use some fun bright DP behind my black and white tacos in honor of Leslie’s fabulous work.  It took me a while to decide between “Let’s taco ’bout it” and “Let’s taco ’bout your birthday.”  In fact, I had the party hats all ready to go for this card.  But once I decided on this inside sentiment, “Let’s taco ’bout it” won out.

This is made with my very own font that I designed using calligraphr.com.  If you’d like to use this on your cards just right click on the image and save it to your computer.  If you use it, I’d love to see it, so please tag me @cardsbyjennifrann and #thestampingactuary.

Stampers Delights January Sale! – Chibi Spotlight

I’m back with some more inspiration to go along with the HUGE SALE in the Stampers Delights shop!  Today I chose Chibi Get Well Girl.  I colored her with Copics, but also masked off and stamped some patterns onto her blanket and pillow.  Her hair is colored with Y21, E25, E37, and E99 and her skin is colored with E000, E21, and E00.

I felt like trying a new technique, so I went looking through the SCS Tutorials and found the Acrylic Batik technique.  As usual, it was very fun.

First you clear emboss a background on some cardstock and then spread acrylic paint with a credit card or gift card.  I don’t know about you, but I keep all my used gift cards for just such an occasion.

Stampers Delights January Sale!

There is a HUGE SALE going on in the Stampers Delights shop!  I chose to highlight a pretty floral image today.  This beautiful rose can be found here. It was so fun to color with my Copic Markers.  I kept the card design pretty simple to let the beauty of the flowers shine (with a little help from some Stickles).
