Okey dokey, now on to my project. I'm using Coffee? Tea? This is this month's WTG set and I love it. (Yeah, yeah.) I made a little gift set--some altered coasters and a card. Here's the set:


The images were stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa on Perfect Paper Panels and colored with Copic markers. The little crocheted flower was made my moi! I crocheted flowers on the drive to and from CHA, LOL.

Here's a closer look at the card:

This paper is from a new 12 x 12 pad called Moravia by SEI and it's luscious! Such rich colors and metallic copper stripes. Yum! Card stock is Not Quite Navy and Really Rust and the base is Very Vanilla.

Here you see the top of the coaster container:



The side of the container:


And the individual coasters:

These coasters are the kind you used to be able to get to put cross stitch projects in but I never got around to it. So I thought this was the perfect use for them. (BTW, if anyone knows where I can get more, let me know, please!) These three mug images are in the set. Since I needed one more. I stamped each of them lightly (stamped off twice) and then stamped the sentiment on top. The mug on the far right is paper pieced, the others are colored.

Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget the release party tomorrow night at the Member Company Forum at SCS from 8-10 pm EDT. There'll be more samples and the blog candy winner will be announced. Be there ;-)

  13. Oh my gosh, I love your idea!!! Those coasters are so awesome!!! Fabulous coloring!!!

    And can I tell you that when I go on your blog, I feel like I just entered your comfy living room? I obviously don't know what your real living room looks like. But, the way you decorated your banner, and the things that you have on the sides, and even your creations that you are debuting, it's just so warm and inviting!
