The Diva's Coffee Break Designs/ Challenge #117

Greetings everyone!!

I hope you all have had a good week!! It's time again for our challenge over at DCBD. This time we had a sketch to follow.... so when designing a card, that's kinda half of the whole process. The colors I am using are: (all Stampin Up! , of course ;~)) Pacific Point, Sage Shadow, Really Rust and Very Vanilla. The stamp set I used was, A Kind Word, # 113194. When designing this card, I took the opportunity to use a few different tools, that I don't use just every day... I used the new Eyelet Border Punch, #113692, the Floral Frenzy Classy Brass Template, #111807, and a rather new embellishment the Pacific Point Corduroy Brads, #114341. I also colored the stamped image with the SU markers, and they worked SO WELL coloring this image... I felt like a little kid, coloring my picture. I hope you all do enjoy this card... it was enjoyable putting it together.

IF you are looking at the picture where I used the new border punch, and wondering how to use that punch... CALL, and let's get together for a workshop with you and your friends!!

Check back soon, and thanks for stopping by.

Enjoy your day, it's a gift!!




  1. Nice job with your coloring Denise, and such a neat way to use that new punch. Mine is on my next order!

  2. Wow, Denise, nice job! See you went ahead and changed it up. I like how you made it the other direction. I like how you used the eyelet punch to go over the top. Wonderful.

  3. Nice job on the challenge and making it your own!

  4. Nice work! That is a cute stamp you chose!

  5. Hi Denise, your card is awesome! I love the colouring. I'm still learning how to use the markers and I am not good with it (colouring, watercolour etc) Thank you for the comfort words too! I will try to keep posted about Jhoi's health.


  6. This is great! I love how you flipped the sketch! Everyone always "sees" something different - I love it!

  7. Very pretty card. I like the differnt look of the sketch.
