Welcome to my post for Taylored Expressions April Release! Today I’m showcasing the NEW ‘Some Like it Hot’ stamp set! So many FABULOUS sentiments! Made you smile!
The NEW April release products are in the TE store right now! YAY!
I used the NEW Build a Bookmark die cut from watercolor card-stock for the base and the ‘steam’. Then the NEW Stacked Mugs die cut in black card-stock and coated with Glossy Accents. (the steam too) The die cuts the card-stock pieces to go behind the mugs too! I used Red Pepper and Cookie Monster TE card-stock.
I inked the tag a lot with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink, then I got the bookmark wet, threw on some Walnut Ink crystals and dried it with the heat tool. An eyelet, ribbon and brad embellish the top. I love it! We used to make everything brown and coffee stained, so it was fun to revisit this technique!
Here’s what I used for the bookmark…
Such fun NEW stamp sets and die sets! To see what the other TE designers made, click over to the TE blog and scroll through Taylor’s post and at the bottom you’ll see links to their blog posts. Always LOVE more inspiration!
Thanks for stopping by today! Happy creating!

Pam. Love your work!!
Well I can tell this post is going to cost me some money!! Love the book mark and those coffee cups. Wonderful Pam – once again I am begging you to go on a vacation and quit posting so much!!! I need a break!
What if I don’t have any walnut ink crystals!!!!
Oh wow!!!! I am not a coffee drinker-but it makes me want to start-just so I can send these adorable cards. I could send to friends that do though. So very cute. I love the coffee stain look. That would cover up any mistakes I might make-tee hee!!!
When I placed my order I put in the comment section that you were responsible for this sale!
Both cards are amazing – I love the coffee cups.
Oh my, these are FABULOUS, Pam, those CUPS!!!!

Oooooh I love them both!! The distressing on the bookmark looks amazing! The florally springy card is stunning!I adore the cups die and you showcased it beautifully on two very different looking projects!!
I had forgotten about the walnut ink crystals technique. It makes a great background and looks like spilled coffee !!!! Great cards.

Love all the color you used in these cards. Just saw that I missed a couple of days of your cards. Still don’t understand why I don’t get the emails as I get them from other sites. Oh, well. Great inspiration on all these adorable cards.
These are beyond lovely, Pam 🙂
