Second Cup Sunday - Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog


Hello and welcome!

I'm so excited to let you know that I will be joining the awesome ladies over at Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog every other Sunday with "Second Cup Sunday" series.  Every other Sunday I will be sharing a hot drink inspired creation on their blog and hopefully a little bit of kindness too!

  Thanks so much to Amy and the team for inviting me to join them!!!


Here's my first creation, made with a lovely digital stamp from a stamp set by Super Sponsor Graciellie Design called "Coffee Queen."   I made the stamp large enough to cover most of an A2 size card and colored it with alcohol markers, then fussy cut it out.


I paired it with one of my all time favorite word die sentiments from Super Sponsor Stamplorations.  The Cutplorations die is "Oh Frap" and I die cut it 3 times, twice from white card stock and once from black, then offset them just a little.   Then I added the stacked die to the coffee cup center.  The background paper is from a retired American Crafts paper pad called "Hot Cocoa."

Here's one last look at my card:

I hope you like my card for today!  Let me know what you think in the comments below!

I hope your upcoming week is a special one and always remember:

"No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted."
-Aesop 

See you next time!

Just Us Girls Color Week #606



























Hello and welcome!  Today starts a brand new challenge at Just Us Girls hosted by Lisa!

Here are the colors she has chosen:

Yellow, turquoise, green

For my card I took the 3 Hero Arts Mini ink cubes in colors from the challenge and swiped them directly onto a piece of card stock in diagonal lines.  I went back over them several times to get them blending and then I used several of the layering flower image stamps from Altenew and also did some masking.
The sentiment is from Woodware Stamps.

Here's another look at my card:



I hope you will have a chance to play along this week!  Be sure to stop by the JUGS blog and see what the team and our special October guest have prepared to inspire you.

Thank so much for stopping by!

Bon Voyage with Woodware Stamps "Snail Ride"

 


Hello and welcome!

I have a fun birthday card for you today made with a brand new Woodware Stamps stamp set called "Snail Ride."  This new stamp is available HERE.

The release of gnomes from Woodware Stamps by Creative Expressions is so adorable!

Here's a closer look at this cute image!







 I stamped the images in black ink and then colored them with Karin markers and a water brush.  Once it was dry, I added some Zig Clean Color markers and white gel pen for a little more depth.  The sentiment is from the same set heat embossed in white on black card stock, then trimmed into a banner.  Lastly I added Glossy Accents to the hearts and butterflies.  Here's one last look:



































I hope you enjoyed my card for today!  This stamp set is available in the USA at Scrapbook.com HERE, and at Craft Stash USA HERE!  And it's available in the UK Creative Expressions store HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

 Isn't he just the cutest?

Here's a closer look at this cute guy!






 I stamped the images in black ink and then colored them with Karin markers and a water brush.  Once it was dry, I added colored pencils and white gel pen for more depth.  The sentiment is from the same set heat embossed in white on black card stock, then trimmed into a banner.  Lastly I added Glossy Accents to the hearts, cake sprinkles and candle flames.  Here's one last look:
