My Alone Time / #fall2017clh

I absolutely love ALL things about rubber stamping, I also have a bit of a snarky, sarcastic side. This probably isn't much of a secret to my close friends. I love bringing out that side in the cards I create and this Dark Coffee set from STAMPlorations is just perfect.  It is from the Big Grins by Becca Cruger line and I'm thinking that maybe she and I are long lost relatives -- we have the same sort of sense of humor.

My Alone Time is For Everyone's Safety

  • On a  DCWV  tag, I stamped the Dark Coffee Gal in the lower Right corner and colored her with my Distress Markers and Faber-Castell PITT Artist pens . She was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and her glasses were stamped with Clearsnap ColorBox Fireberry.
  • The sentiment was stamped on a scrap of fall-patterned paper and attached to the tag with a copper staple.
  • I placed a bit of Fall-themed washi on the tag, then tied a bit of Maya Road twine cording to the top of the tag. .
  • A turquoise rhinestone made the perfect earring for this gal and a bit of coppery tinsel glitter added a touch of shimmer to the coffee.
  • The tag was popped up on the Paperlove card base with foam dimensionals.

The image of this coffee gal really reminds me of my mom. I colored her hair like my mom's and put the glasses on her like my mom  wore. I don't think I really even thought of this when I ordered the stamp set, but then when I inked it and stamped it, there SHE was !! As you can see in the picture I posted, it's pretty close !!

  6. what a coincidence to see your mom
    in a stamp and be able to adapt it
    so it "is" her. Love snarky.
    I'd rather have fun than gooey
    sentiments.
    thanks for sharing.
