My Pink Stamper Design Team Call!

It's that time of year again when Robyn puts out her Design Team call and all of us crafters get to work. Robyn's instructions are to create a project using the colors, green, brown, orange, and turquoise.

Unfortunately, I don't have any of Robyn's stamp sets (*gasp*, I know, I'm not sure why. I want them so badly I can't stand it.) So, I began going through my stamp collection and rediscovered my 40:31 Creations Say Something set. I've been dying to use this sentiment on a project (I'm a coffee fiend). Then, using, I searched Cricut images for a coffee cup. Using my Gypsy, I cut this image at 3 1/4" from the Graphically Speaking Cartridge. I used Basic Grey's Sweet Threads, Stampin' Up cardstock, and for the steam, velum from my stash.

I used my Martha Steward Punch-around the paper to create a lace doily. I finished by adding stitching with my Gelly Roll pen.

I can't believe it's only been a year since I found Robyn's videos and If it weren't for Robyn there's no way I would be typing on this blog today. She is the reason I got back into crafting and found a piece of myself I didn't even know was missing. Unfortunately, I'm not surrounded by people who understand my obsession with crafting, so Robyn's introduction to the online "support group" was exactly what I needed. Being on her design team would be a dream come true. Thanks Robyn, for everything you've given me.

 Wish me luck and as always, thanks for stopping by,
Dana Desmond
