About Me

My photo
Welcome. My name is Lisa and I live on a farm in Northeastern PA. I have a wonderful husband of over 30 years and two fabulous sons. One with a wonderful wife and another with a wonderful girlfriend. I have a 6 year old granddaughter and an 4 year old grandson. We have a dog, two cats, and 5 horses. I started into this art as a possible scrapbooker until my good friend Lou Ann (SCS Crooked Stamper) invited me to a Stampin' Up party. Now I'm hooked. We had to turn a room of our home into a craft room for all my stuff. Then I needed a second craft room and did classes. Then I decided to open an in home store using three more rooms of our home. Between Lou Ann (Crafter and IT department) and Mary Ann (Crafter and Jewelry department) and a few other friends, I'm having the time of my life!!!!

Friends Like Coffee

     This card is done with the stamps designed by my friend and fellow giggler Diane Zeckman aka Cookie Stamper called Special Blend and sold by Sweet n Sassy Stamps  It's such an adorable set with several images and loads of sentiments.

     This is a no reason card that I made while playing around with the set.  (Don't tell Diane, but I hate the taste of coffee.  I'm a Pepsi girl.)  But I love the sentiment. 


I started this with the coffee mug, stamped with Memento Ink on X-Press paper and colored with pencils and copics. I then die cut it with Spellbinders Label Three.  Next, I die cut a scrap piece of SU Crumb Cake with the same die, sponged it with SU Crumb Cake ink,  and turned it 1/4 turn to put behind my mug.   The center panel was from the same scrap of cs that a punched and sponged the ends.  I stamped the sentiments in SU Early Espresso with the COFFEE stamp I did on another scrap (man, do I have alot of Crumb Cake pieces) and pop-dotted that and the mug.  I tied a little SU ribbon and the bottom.  From that I did my background of those adorable coffee beans stamps in SU Crumb Cake on SU Very Vanilla cs that was cut 1/8 inch smaller that 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 (I hate fractions.  That's why I have measured cutters).  All was attached and put on a Crumb Cake base.  Hope you like it.
