Before I get onto my card I am really sad that this will be my last week as Guest Designer, it been amazing to be part of the team for a month, and also for that month to be STAMPtember made it even better, I really have loved every minute of it and cannot thank everyone for having me. 
For my card I have used the Hipster 1 die set from Spellbinders, I am a HUGE coffee nut so it just had to be this set for me as it contains a fab coffee cup in the Starbucks style, it even comes complete with a little die so you can create the wraps that put round them ! 
This was another total non planned and just sat down and see what happened card….seem to do them a lot lately. I decided to create a shaker using the die cut cups. 
The sentiment is just perfect and is from the Choose Happy Stamp set by Simon Says Stamp (all supplies are listed and linked below). Sadly the papers I used are no longer available ! Although I am going to try and hunt some down because I LOVE this pad. 
If you want to see how I created the card in more detail then check out the video below. 
I hope you enjoyed the video, as you can see the dies are lots of fun to work with and I think they have become a firm favorite with me already ! 
I wanted to show a bit closer of the detail I added with the pens and Distress ink and also the embossing detail from the dies. If I had planned it better then I would got some coffee beans and added them to the shaker but we only have ground ! 
I also wanted to show that you don’t just have to use Sequins or beads in a shaker card and I am really pleased with how it turned out.

 I created two cards for this challenge.
The first one I created using just the leaves from the beautiful Hydrangea Blooms Stamp set (all supplies are listed and linked below) and the sentiment is from the Autumn Greetings set.

 I used a fun technique with ink pads for this card.Check out the video below where I show you both sets, and also how I created the card.


For the second card I used the Hydrangea Blooms set but this time I have used the main flower. In this set they have included the flowers open, like I have used below so you can colour them, or they have also included them solid so you can ink them up.

 I have heat embossed the flowers and then water coloured the whole piece using my Mission Gold water colours. I then heat embossed one of the sentiments from the set and die cut the piece out using a Stitched rectangle die. I then adhered it too a matching card base and added some sequins.

 Both of the stamp sets I have used are part of the big release for STAMPtember.
