A Creative Journey With Melissa : October Stamp Release!!

Welcome to the monthly NEW RELEASES for A Creative Journey with Melissa. Every SECOND WEDNESDAY of the month we will be featuring our newly released stamp sets! I am thrilled to be able to share these creations with you today. The new stamp releases are the You’re Snow Wonderful and Coffee Is My Liquid Therapy. We are also highlighting our amazingly cute and versatile Everyday Alphabet stamp sets throughout this hop as well.
I am showcasing You're Snow Wonderful and Coffee Is My Liquid Therapy stamp sets.  Here are my projects and directions.

Coffee Is My Liquid Therapy  - Red Cup : I stamped out my cup from Coffee Is My Liquid Therapy and colored it in with my Copic markers, then I cut it out and used my Copic blender to add random polka dots. After cutting it out, I added some popdots (foam squares to pop it up) and placed it on diecut from JustRite called Antique Tag 1 Die, paired with a Spellbinders Parisian die behind it.

You're Snow Wonderful - Tag : I cut out the swirly tag in Kraft paper, using my Silhouette Cameo, with a design I found on the Silhouette America site. After cutting my tag, I stamped the snowman from You're Snow Wonderful set and colored everything in with my Copic markers. After coloring everything in, I cut all my images out with my craft knife and added them to my tag, using glue, adhesives and square foam dots to my snowman image, so it would add dimension to my tag, instead of being flat. I added it to my gift cup with a green satin ribbon, tied in a bow.
Coffee Is My Liquid Therapy - Java Birthday Frame : I colored my cup image in with my Copic markers and cut it out using my craft knife. I cut down a piece of Flourishes Classic White paper and stamped a star image from the Coffee Is My Liquid Therapy set, in Memento Desert Sands ink, then added my sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Finally, I added some adhesive to the back of my cut out cup and smoothed it onto the decorated paper background and attached it to my frame.
