SSS Monday Challenge-anything but a card

Every month I make a new layout to insert in my starbucks water cup. For June I made a watercolor background and used Hero Arts mermaids to decorate the under sea scene....

I enjoy using this cup to drink water all day, every month a new theme!

He loves to watch all the space shows on TV so I made him this card yesterday, I special ordered the AltENew Moon stamp set just to make him this card! get yours at

I embossed the moon to give it texture and I used ranger inks to make the sky background.

Simon Says Wednesday challenge

Use more then one stamp:

Not hard to do when you have way too many stamps! I started out in the 1990's buying wood mounted stamps at the craft store,, from there I started buying from Stampin'up and CTMH...from there I started finding cool stamp company's at stamp and scrapbook expo, Lawn Fawn, MFT, Pink and Main, etc... Now online I love to shop at Simon Says Stamp, they have all the cool stamp companies in one place with all the accessories you need to make fabulous cards and scrapbooks and more.....and I can buy in my jammies while sipping a nice hot cup of coffee, nice!

Here is a card I made using more then 1 stamp:

I used a little bit of various stamp sets to make this coffee card, just grabbed a bunch of coffee sets. I like to collect coffee stamps so was not hard to make! Just a little of this and a little of that....
colored with my markers, popped them up on wood grain paper squares.
Happy Weekend!
