Favorites Blog Hop


This blog hop is to feature some of our favorite stamp sets or papers or techniques.  That is really difficult for me, because I love so many of the TAC stamps.  But I chose  Rise and Shine, a set I've used quite a lot.  I fell in love with this set when taking Mischelle's Copic Caboodle Coloring Classes last year.  The rooster is a fun image to color, and I like the sayings that go with it. 

My card is made with Hemingway SWIC printed cardstock and Hemingway solid cardstock  The image is stamped on white cardstock and colored with Copic markers.  The distressed look comes from crumpling the paper and sponging ink over the creases.

I have also made tumbled marble tile coasters using this same stamp set.  These tiles are stamped with Stazon-Ink and colored with Fabrico Markers. I heat set them and sprayed them lightly with a clear matt enamel spray.  The backs of the coasters have cork bottoms.


Coasters make nice gifts, and I have given several sets of these coasters to friends who have a rooster decor in their kitchens.  This year I decided to do another set for my Seminar prop swap, so some angel will receive them when we do our swaps!  Hope she likes them.

What is your favorite stamp set? 
Make a card and share it in our blog hop.

I have this set but have yet to ink it up b/c I didn't know how to color the rooster. Thanks for the sample!
