Oh the #Foolishness

Happy Monday! How about a mini-hop to alleviate the pain of the weekend being over?

So, I have had the epic joy of considering the wonderful Kymona Tracey as a friend for...wow, three years now I believe. We first met when we were on the original So Suzy Stamps Design Team together. And since then...my goodness, the foolishness we have shared! LOL

So some people say silliness, some tell you that's ridiculous or crazy or nutty...but our Kymona is all about the foolishness. Thus, after Suzy, Justine, Josefine, Kymona and I hung out all of Creativation this January the plan was hatched that we needed a special stamp to commemorate such an occasion and the memories we made - #Foolishness.

Better still, Kymona is now waking up to see exactly what #foolishness we've been up to. Oh yeah, this is a total surprise for her. Happy #Foolishness Day, Kymona! Hehehehehehe...and I can totally hear her telling me just how foolish this card is.

Now, we all know how much I love my coffee. If you don't, um, #foolishness. LOL But there's a certain trend I just could not get behind...I do hope you can figure out which one.


Total. Utter. #Foolishness! Of course, Kymona has also witnessed just how much caffeine I like to consume in a given day, which she has also deemed as #foolishness. I love you, too, Kymona!

I actually had to Google an image of the unicorn drink (as I went nowhere near that #foolishness) for my color palette. After I had that, I went to town masking and stamping my unicorns. I simply fussy cut the masks out of my Post-it tape, which is a fabulous (and cheap) way to do it. Better still, the tape is still sticky and tucked into my stamp packaging for next time. I die cut the coffee cup out of Neenah Solar White first so I knew how much room I had to work with. Then I stamped them all in Memento ink and had fun coloring! It was so much fun using such different colors together in a project.


Copics used: RV04, RV25, RV17, V05, RV02, V01, V0000, BV000, BG13, BG15

I also die cut the cup and lid out of acetate and layered it over the top of my cardstock piece. It's hard to see in photos, but in life it really gives the illusion of the actual frapuccino cup. I stuck it down by running it thru my Xyron machine. Then it was just a matter of heat embossing the #Foolishness on a scrap of purple cardstock (Kymona's favorite color, FYI) in gold embossing powder and adding it with foam tape to the front of the card.


I had to finish up the inside as well, of course! The sentiment is from the Magical Unicorns stamp set and is totally true - you are magical, Kymona! Enjoy this mini-hop in your honor and all the #Foolishness we cooked up for you.

Be sure to visit Suzy, Justine, and Josefine as well to see what #Foolishness they've cooked up!


Thank you so much for stopping by, and try to add some fun #Foolishness each and every day. Happy Caffeinated Crafting!
