Today we're showing off the Caffeinated Octopus and Caffeinated Unicorn sets and I had the pleasure of working with the octopus! And here's how I was inspired:


I decided to go with some different colors this time ... I love this aqua and purple combo and I think once she wakes up, she will too!


I just love this sweet lady!!  It's almost as if she was made to be resting on various objects... love the way her arms lay over the edges...lol!  And all of those coffee cups!!  I just love hashtag sentiments and love that each of these sets comes with one of them!


And the caffeine molecular structure stamps are so cute for a little extra something in the background!  I stamped and embossed them using some beautiful Atlantic Sea Spray Wow Embossing Powder and then ink blended a few different colors over them ever so lightly... then I splattered some metallic watercolors.  Hard to see in these pics but I also added some pretty purple glitter Stickles to her face that I won from my Bloggy Friend Maryann's birthday bash on Instagram..  woo hoo... I'm positive she loves the glitter... in fact... this might be me right now...


I'm playing along with the "Something New" challenges at Cupcake Inspirations and Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge today!  I'm using a new stamp set from a new stamp company as well as new to me embossing powder and my new glitter Stickles!  I'm also playing along over at the current challenge over at Color My Heart Color Dare... check out the colors below!

UPDATED: This little lady was a Sweet Select over at Cupcake Inspirations!


Just LOVE her!!  I hope you do too!  Now you should make your way to Katie's Blog!  You don't even realize it yet, but you can't wait to get there!...lol!
