#663 – Say Hey to Coffee

Hello! I made a couple of cards, both of which I made yesterday –

Hey Friend

For my first card, I used Ellen Hutson Bohemian Garden stamps set, heat embossing the images in white, then colored the images with Zig brush markers. The sentiment is from My Favorite Things Friends and Paper Smooches Hello dies.

Thank you so much for stopping by! 🙂

#647 – Marbled and Flowery Hello

Hello!! 🙂 I’ve been a bit busy creating things which will only be posted next month.. A little too busy to keep current posts coming, I realized. So I decided to take a break and create a card I can post about now.. its nice, after all, when I can just create something because I want to, than ‘have’ to! 🙂

Hello

I used a new stamp set in my stash, another one that I absolutely wanted as soon as I saw it – Waffle Flower Layering Marble. Now, I know that the color combination is somewhat unusual for a marble, but I thought it would look good with the card..

Hello

The flowers are from My Favorite Things Bold Blooms, and the sentiment is from Memory Box Hello die. I added a strip of triangle pattern washi tape as it matched the rest of the card so well.

#635 – The Right Cat-itude

PE: CAS(E) This Sketch Favorite!! Wow!! 😀

CASE This Sketch - Honorable Mention

Hello! Made this thinking of practicing my critter coloring, but, it didn’t end with any sort of proper practice, except if you consider that messy coloring can be a practice (though not on the critter!!) 😉

The Right Cat-itude

I stamped all the images, from My Favorite Things Cat-itude stamp set, on scrap cardstock, fuzzy cut and colored them all using Zig Brush pens. The frame is die cut using Paper Smooches Scallop Frame die. I then adhered them using double sided tape and, the frame inset using glue.

#633 – A Cup of Love

Hello! Its been a long time since I made something coffee/tea themed, and since the Coffee Loving Cardmakers’ Summer Blog Hop is going on, I thought it the perfect opportunity to get going! 🙂

A Cup of Love

Following the sketch from the latest MFT Sketch Challenge, I first colored the base using My Favorite Things Chunky Herringbone stencil and Pumice Stone and Weathered Wood distress inks. I hadn’t yet decided on the layer in between, so I decided to go wit the coffee cup instead. I die cut My Favorite Things Cool Cup out of white cardstock twice, and trimming out the mid piece in the second piece, I stamped the flowers and leaves from My Favorite Things Mini Modern Blooms, then applied a bit of Tumbled Glass distress ink on the open sides. I also die cut the lid and straw out of blue colored vellum, and then adhered all the pieces together.

A Cup of Love

Now, I came to the frame. I had this piece of die cut square frame with vellum adhered on the inside, left unused from a previous project, I thought it would fit well. I stamped this frame using the same Mini Modern Blooms flowers and leaves, then adhered this over the base. I then foam mounted the cool cup, then added the sentiment from My Favorite Things cup of Tea stamp set. I added a few dots of Nuvo Drops for embellishing.
