Good Memorial Morning!

I hope that all of you are having a nice, safe & relaxing 3 day weekend.

I think that I have my computer issues figured out. Knock on wood, keeping fingers crossed! So I thought that it was time for a post.
First things first. I wanted to show you some cards that we made at Anne's Stamp Camp last week. I don't know why I forgot to post them, I just did.. She had us use a stamp set and one type of DP and that was all. But we were to come up with the different ways to put it together. It was fun! And this is an idea for a quick and simple set of note cards to give someone as a gift. Great idea Anne!!
I sat down at my table the other day and I had no inspiration. I wanted to make some cards, nothing would come out. When that happens I grab a box of stamps and start to look thru them. Whatever jumps out at me I use. Well the set Espress yourself jumped out and I used it. I'm not really a coffee drinker, but I love all the coffee sets!
The base card is Chocolate Chip. I layered it with Creamy Caramel and Really Rust. I stamped the beans all over the card with Creamy Caramel ink. The image I used my markers to color directly on the rubber. The coffee cups are stamped on the Chocolate Chip layer in Chocolate Chip ink. I stamped the sentiment caffe' Latte is from TAC's The Morning Buzz set and it is stamped in Chocolate Chip ink.
I layered a piece of white cs inside and stamped the words The Morning Buzz in Real Red ink and I was done. Simple, quick and easy.
The next picture I apologize for, it's a little fuzzy that's why I took a close up.
This is a very old set called Feathered Hope. That's going waaaaayyyyy back...
I stamped the nests on the Riding Hood Red base with Ruby Red ink. I also stamped them on Certainly Celery cs with Old Olive ink. I then tore the Red base card and attached the Certainly Celery layer inside it. I stamped the image on to a piece of River Rock and colored it in with my watercolors. I then cut it to resemble a tag and added a piece of twill ribbon and an eyelet. I added pop dots to adhere it to the card. I used some stickles on the flowers for an added touch. The inside of the card I stamped the sentiment with Ruby Red ink and I was complete.
I hope you enjoyed the cards today. I'll be back tomorrow with something else to show you! I appreciate all of you stopping by to see what I've done!
Have a great rest of your weekend!
