Time for Coffee!


I'm on the LDRS Creative blog today sharing a card I made using the newest release from CHA!

...and it falls along with the Spring Coffee Lovers blog hop!!

Here is Time for a Coffee Break...

Time for coffee

I colored with Copic Markers and layered my image with Creative Basics dies:

- Basic Pierced Ovals

- Basic Stitched Flags

- Fancy Rectangles & Layers

I also embossed the patterned paper on my card base using a Majestic embossing folder, and as usual embellished my card with coordinating twine & sequins!

Hope you take the time to enjoy a coffee break!

Grab Some Brew?

Coffee brew that is...

I'm back on the The Greeting Farm for my last post as guest designer! I can't thank the amazing peeps at TGF enough for this fun chance to play and share their fabulous stamps!

For my final card I used the Mini Remix- Brewtiful stamp set! AND just in time for the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog hop too! 

Grab some brew?

I masked the sweet pup from the Mini-Remix Boys before stamping mini Anya to give her a little friend as she sips her frappe-drink! I stamped the sentiment using pieces from the Brewtiful set to create my own message, paired my images with coordinating papers, washi tape, and embellishments to complete my card!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hey Dude!

Hey Dude (-ettes!) I'm on the The Greeting Farm for another guest designer post sharin another card- this time one for the boys!

Hey Dude!

I inked up one of the Ians from the Mini-Remix Boys clear stamp set and colored him using Copic Markers. I had originally planned for my card to be 'clean & simple' but I just couldn't stop- so I decided to use more sentiments included in the set to surround the mini Ian. I put the card together by layering coordinating patterned papers with some jute twine-and now it's good to go for my son's birthday in a few months!

Hi Anya!

2nd post for me today and I'm SO excited to share...

I'm guest designing with The Greeting Farm this month!

For my first card, I decided to play with one of the newer Anya images to join the Farm, Hi Anya! She's just the sweetest- loved coloring her dress and the cute flower in her hair!

Hi Anya

Since the Farm Fresh Challenge for the month of March is 'mixed media' I pulled out a few distress inks to create the background circle- using watercolor card stock I first stamped & clear heat embossed the flower that is included with the Anya set. I then choose some colors to match her flower (spun sugar, picked raspberry and seedless preserves), and blended them for and ombré effect. I added a few strips of washi tape and sequins to complete my card!

flower: RV02, RV66, RV69, Y35

Thanks for stopping by... have a fabulous day!

Need a hug?

Hello & Happy Tuesday!

It's the first Tuesday of the month which means its new challenge day at Tiddly Inks! This month's challenge theme is Animal Magic!

I decided to go with this sweet Penguin image Christy of Tiddly Inks created as a freebie to share a little love with all that is going on in the world today... Be Cool & Love Each Other

Love Each other

I colored the penguins in 3 shades of Copic grays (neutral, cool, & warm) and die cut the image using a Stitched tag die from Pretty Pink Posh. Keeping my card simple to allow the penguins shine, I added a simple sentiment from Lawn Fawn and put it all together using coordinating paper scraps, sequins, & a tiny wood veneer heart!

Hoping to see you play along with us... you have a whole month! Check out the details and more fabulous inspiration from the rest of the design team HERE!

Sending Happiness!

Somehow this card never made it on my blog when I shared it on the LDRS Creative blog back in January (pesky blogger)!!

I used one of the *NEW* stamps sets, Outdoor Play by Becky Pearce, from CHA, that are avaialable now for preorder here...

Sending Happiness

I love me some cute critters, and this set is just filled with them! I mean how could you resist cuddly bears & FOXES!? I couldn't help but to color of bear as a sweet panda, don't they look like the cutest bunch of friends headed to the park to play!

I colored and fussy cut out each one to create my playful scene. I diecut some coordinating patterned papers using the Fancy Rectangles & Little Things and a Basic Pierced Ovals for ground and layered them together on the a patterned sunburst paper that is also embossed with the Picnic Quilt embossing folder. I finished off the card by stamping the sentiment (also in the Outdoor Play stamp set) on the 'grass!'
