Cool Coffee!


Hi everyone,

It’s time for another Pretties Wednesday Challenge & Blog Hop. If you didn't hop onto my blog via Jackie Rakoski's blog then you might want to hop back over to the very start of the blog hop which is at Christie Ortman blog.

This week the challenge is hosted by Jackie Rakoski, who challenged us to a color challenge …  the colors being red, kraft & green.

The stamps the design team are using on our card/projects this week are “Right On Par” and “Coffee Cool” . Both these stamps sets are available for sale this week at 35% off the normal price.

My card today uses the “Coffee Cool” stamp set. I stamped the image onto kraft card, then used a white colored pencil to color the top portion of the circle and the ice cubes, then colored the rest of the image with copics.

Want to play along with us

How to Enter: Create a card/project using the challenge above and any Paper Pretties stamp set(s) you have. Upload your project to the Paper Pretties gallery. Please include it in the Weekly Challenges category and use keyword PWC105.

Don’t forget to check out the rest of the Paper Pretties Design team to see what they came up with for this challenge.

Now to continue on the hop you need to head on over to Heather Lee-Reppen’s blog to see what she has created for this week’s challenge.
