Spring + Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop

Hi everyone!  I’m joining in on the Spring + Summer Coffee Lovers BloghopKat Scrappiness is a Super Sponsor for this hop, and has a great sale and prizes available for the hop.

I have a confession to make – I hate coffee!!  However, I do think coffee cards are cute and have lots of friends and family that like coffee.

I made this card using the Kat Scrappiness Layered Coffee Cup Die and Got Coffee? Sentiment die.  The sentiments on the coffee cozies are from the Avery Elle Cool Beans stamp set.

Merry Christmas Challenge #20 for 2018

Remember a couple of weeks ago when I said the warm weather has arrived, well now the hot weather is here – in the 90’s this week!  This makes it hard to get in the mood to make Christmas cards.  I was able to push through and make a couple of cards for the Merry Christmas Challenge!  This week was anything goes with an optional theme of gift cards.  I choose not do do the optional theme this week.

I used the Freshly Made Sketch for this weeks cards.  The pattern paper is from Recollections, and the sentiment is from Hero Arts.

Merry Christmas Challenge #18 for 2018

Hi everyone, May is here and so is the warm weather (finally)!   I’m back this week with another card for the Merry Christmas Challenge.  This week’s theme  is anything goes with an optional theme of decorations.

I’m used Lawn Fawn’s Mine Picture Frames dies to create “pictures” for this card.  That counts as decorations right?!  I used stamps from Simon Says Stamps Ugly Sweater and Sweater Words,  My Favorite Things Santa Elves, and a sentiment from Paper Smooches Christmas Sampler.  I did some simple coloring with my Spectrum Noir markers.  The green patterned paper is from Pebbles Home for Christmas paper pad.

Merry Christmas Challenge #16 for 2018

Hi everyone, I’m ready for the spring weather to arrive and stay!   I’m back this week with another card for the Merry Christmas Challenge.  This week’s theme  is anything goes with an optional theme of presents.

I have a very simple card today that only uses patterned paper, card stock, glossy accents, and adhesive.  The present patterned paper is from American Crafts Deck the Halls paper pad.  The sentiment block is also from this paper pad.  I added glossy accents to the tree to give it a little bit of something extra.

Merry Christmas Challenge #14 -2018

Hope everyone had a good Easter.  This week for the  Merry Christmas Challenge is anything goes with an optional theme of old fashion.  This  isn’t a style that I’m comfortable with, but I wanted to give it a try!

I used a piece of patterned paper from the Echo Park Reflections Christmas collection that I thought looked ‘old fashioned’.

I distressed the edges of the patterned paper then swiped the edges with some brown ink.  I stamped and embossed the sentiment with Zing Chestnut embossing powder.  The sentiment is from Paper Smooches A Blessed Christmas set.  I adhered it to a cream card base to finish the card.
