Sip By Sip

Why oh why oh why did I buy this set? I love the coffee cups and so want a decent SU! coffee set, but this one isn't cutting it for me! Talk about hard to work with...sheesh!
This chick need some serious help. You either get an all black ink image or you have to paper piece and marker it. Way more work that it's worth. Yeah, I'm complaining.... But I do love her blinged out diamond ring ;)

  1. Really? I'm finding Sip by Sip easy to work with, but I've been using the cups more than anything.

    I love this set and I don't even like coffee!

  2. All your projects are just fabulous. Lovin that hugh it real?

  3. I just found you thru SCS and have to say I luv your blog. These coffee cards are adorable. I'll be back to visit again. Take care!

    Peace and Luv,

  4. You are so talented. When I don't like a set, I just don't use it. You manage to come up with adorable works!! You are so inspiring!

  5. Wanted to add to my first comment... to say, I love what you did with this set, even though it seemed difficult for you.

    Love that bling too!

    I find the coffee cups fun to work with but can see how the lady is a struggle. My first attempt with her was red! LOL!

  6. I think your "sip by sip" cards are fantastic! I love the color combos with the dsp and the embellishments. I also would like to see a more "perfect" coffee set from SU. I am thinking of getting the Flourish "Coffee with Friends" so I can paper piece with dsp. The images look big enough to do that successfully. Congrats on working through a "tough" set!

  7. You say you don't like it but you did a great job designing this one. I never considered buying this one but now I may have to re-think it. You are very talented!!!

  8. i think you're doing fine with this set becky. your cards are great!!

  9. I agree with you that Sip by Sip is not a very good set, but you worked your usual magic and made it amazing!! I especially love the first card with the cherry paper. Thanks for the constant inspiration!

  10. Becky, I think your cards are lovely! I'd never guess that you had trouble working with that set!! I've debated on whether to order it or not.
    Thanks for sharing!

  11. I love your creations using Sip by Sip... it's because of your work that I've added it to my wish list!

  12. All your projects are just fabulous. Lovin that hugh it real?
