Coffee Cafe-Thanks a Latte

Coffee Cafe-Thanks a Latte card is the perfect way to say “thank you” to that special friend that is always there for you…just like your morning coffee or in my case, Diet Coke.

For DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge. Sketch Pad. Shared by Dawn Thomas #crackedpotstamper

Time for the DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge, this week it is a “Sketch Pad” Challenge.

I was inspired by the versatility of this sketch and the endless opportunities for creativity.

I love that this card was so simple to put together because Stampin’ Up! offers so many products that work together perfectly…I know they planned it that way but it sure makes my life easier. So I have extra time to share a cup of joe with a friend.

Eastern Medallions Sequins Shaker Card

Eastern Medallions Sequins Shaker Card

An Eastern Medallions Sequin Shaker Card was not what I planned to create when I sat down in my studio today

but

I do have to say…I think it is FABULOUS!

This weeks Tic Tac Toe Challenge board was filled with lots of options, as always.

Tic Tac Toe Challenge No. 009 shared by Dawn Thomas #crackedpotstamper #stampinup #tttc009 #thankyou #easternmedallionsthinlits #lotsofsequins

 

This week I choose the elements in the top row: thank you, sequins and all things round.

I love how the sequins sparkle and twinkle when they catch the light while shaking this card.

Ink: Smoky Slate

Accessories: Iridescent Sequin, Linen Thread, Burlap Ribbon and Striped Grosgrain Ribbon

Tools: Big Shot, Eastern Medallions Thinlits, Triple Banner Punch

It’s All in the Details:

  • Love the shimmer behind the window as the sequins dance around
  • And it was quick and easy to assemble

Daisy Delight Bundle Swaps

WooHoo!! The Daisy Delight Bundle is available!!

Stampin' Up! Daisy Delight Bundle is now availalble. For details and more ideas click through to my blog. #crackedpotstamper #stampinup #handstamped via @ Dawn Thomas (Cracked Pot Stamper)

 

With the Daisy Delight Bundle you can picture yourself lying in the sun, sipping your favorite beverage, kids playing nearby, soft music playing, and everything on your to-do list and every household chore is already done.

That’s the same feeling you’ll get from this lovely floral stamp set. It really is just delightful.

TIP: Stamp the daisy image and then punch out the image for flowers in a flash. Stamp and punch multiple flowers for a more full flower.

What is a Swap?

The best way I can explain what a swap is to compare it to a cookie exchange.

Each stamper makes a number of cards and then trades them with other stampers.

It is far easier to make 15 of one card than 15 different cards.

Why Do I Swap?
  • Swapping is one of the ways I like to connect within the Stampin’ Up! community of demonstrators.
  • It is a GREAT way to share ideas and learn new techniques.
  • And by participating in swaps I also am able to acquire lots of samples for my customers viewing pleasure.
  • Ready to see some swaps?
Swaps: Daisy Delight Bundle

Stampin’ Up! has done the work for you…feel free to CaSE it!

Incidentally, if you do not have a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator or a catalog-please let me know as I would love to pop one in the mail for you and earn your business.

Stampin' Up! 2017-18 Annual Catalog page 137 shared by Dawn Thomas #crackedpotstamper

When I started working on this project, I envisioned

  • Powder Pink cardstock
  • Pinewood Planks 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder

but then somewhere in the creating process I took a different turn and ended up with

  • the gorgeous Wood Textures Designer Series Paper
  • Fabulous Designer Foil Acetate
  • a Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper Dragonfly.

Boy, I didn’t see that coming-but I really like!

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #199: Petals & Paisleys DSP

Time for Thursday Challenge – Woo Hoo!!

This week it is a "Sketch Pad" Challenge.

This is the Inspiration.

DSC#199

And this is my interpretation.

Petals & Paisleys card created by Dawn Thomas for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge no.199  #crackedpotstamper

What did I use to create this beauty? (scroll down to bottom for complete supply list and links)

  • Stamp Set:  Endless Thanks
  • Paper: Petals & Paisleys Specialty Designer Series Paper, Rich Razzleberry, Delightful Dijon and Very Vanilla    
  • Ink: Rich Razzleberry
  • Accessories: Gold Wink of Stella Glitter Brush, Mint Macaron 3/8" Sheer Linen Ribbon
  • It's All in the Details: 
    • The gold speckles were created by squeezing a little extra Wink of Stella onto the brush and then "flicking" it-it's a bit messy and my "flicking" was not very accurate but my desk now has a beautiful gold speckled look. 


Remember…

"You is kind.

You is smart

You is important."

~Aibileen Clark, "The Help"

Blessings and Joy to you,

Dawn
