Espress Your Pockets!

The Technique Lover’s Challenge at SCS this week was to make a Pixie Pocket Card.  I have made something very similar before but not with these dimensions. The directions are in the first post if you click on the link above.


One of my favorite color combos is Pink and Chocolate Chip.  Since that was one of the VSN challenges, I had some scraps that I thought would work good for this card.  Pink and Brown always goes good with Chocolate!!! 🙂

My cardstock started out as 7"x8" then folded (so your card is 4×7), Open the card back up and cut down 1-1/2" on the fold and score across so you can fold that flap down. Place adhesive across the bottom edge and up the side to hold the card together.

I added the DP which is from DCWV’s Spring Stack.  Since I made that round card with What’s Brewin’, I really wanted to use Espress Yourself this time.  It is one of my favorite sets!  An oldie, but a goodie!

I applied liquid applique to the marshmallows and added glitter to it while it was still wet.  Then I heat set it to make it puff!  Now they are glittery and puffy!  I also added glitter to the mug and heart.  The flower stamp is from In the Spotlight and was punched out with the 5 petal Flower punch from SU! as well.
The rectangles were cut with my Nestabilites and my Cuttlebug.  I also added primas, brads, ribbon and the most important thing…..a HERSHEY bar!!

Until Next Time….Happy Creating!!!

Did You Participate?

My weekend was full, how about yours?  This past weekend was VSN weekend at SCS.  VSN stands for Virtual Stamp Night!  They issue many challenges throughout Friday night and Saturday.  It is such a blast.  This past weekend was already full for me so I only got 2 cards done.  I may go back and complete some more later.

The first challenge I completed was to make a circle card with a particular layout. Here is the layout:  Circle20card20sketch

Here is my card:


Stamps:  What’s Brewin’, Espress Yourself
Paper: Bravo Burgundy, Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip, White
Ink: Bravo Burgundy, Going Gray, Chocolate Chip, Versamark
Accessories: Scalloped Circle Nestabilities, Stickles, Clear Bubble sticker, Iridescent Ice EP

The sparkly images around the outside are coffee beans embossed with the iridescent ice EP.  I used the stickles on the steam and the heart.

The second challenge I completed was Chocolate Shoes!  Jamie posted a picture for inspiration.  This is that picture.


  Those are some yummy looking shoes!  Here is my card, inspired from this picture.


I really like this Bella stamp!  I’m not an avid shoe shopped but I have friends that are! Somedays I think I need to be, but it’s just not in me!  The DP is from DCWV’s Spring Stack and I layered it with Chocolate Chip and Pretty and Pink.

Until Next Time….Happy Stamping!!!
