Happy Thursday!  I’ve had such a productive morning and I sure hope it keeps me going the rest of the day.  My new coffee pot (my sister gave me a Bunn for my birthday) was not flowing well this morning.  This darn hard water here had already caused some problems.  I found the little tool to clean the coffee maker, and went to it . . . works like a charm now.  I did learn that you should always check the sprayhead first, little bits of calcium build up in there clogging the water flow and that truly was the whole problem.

While I was waiting for the coffee maker to cool down, I did check in on today’s Splitcoaststampers Ways to Use it Challenge.  It’s a fun one today – use pearls (any type of pearls, i.e., Pearl Ex, Perfect Pearls, Liquid Pearls, Pearl stickers, Pearl brads).  Well, I have every color of Ranger Liquid Pearls – WOO HOO!

I received a few days ago some new stamps from my friends over at Our Craft Lounge and have been wanting all week to work with them.  Today is my chance!


I used the cupcake from Life is Sweet and colored it with Copic Markers.  I used Circle Nestabilities for the background for the cupcake and used the Scalloped Long Rectangle to cut the scalloped edge along the bottom of the cross piece.  For my pearls, I decorated all the scallops with a drop of White Opal Liquid Pearls.

I’m heading back down to the studio since I feel so creative today.  Hope you enjoy your day and you feel creative as well!

  4. I need to find me some of these liquid pearls….of course, I also need to find me some time to do some creating!! Soooo, until that happens, I’ll just live vicariously thru your creations (get busy gf…..I have a lot of time to make up for!! BWHHAAAA)

  5. Yummy Sherry, love your faux pearls!!

  6. Love the colour combo of the pink and black with the pink highlight around the tag. I always adore using a dangling tag with a sentiment on it, but never seem to use it at the time of my creation. HUMPH!

    P.S. Have you ever tried using a product called, “CLR”? It’s wonderful for removing hard water stains & build-up in coffee machines and pots, dishwasher, washing machine, pretty much anything that houses water. Also great for removing that gross scum that seems to grow constantly in the shower and bath tub area.
