Winter wishes

Hello. Continuing with the winter coffee theme.

I paired this with the sketch challenge over at TGIF Challenges and The Code word of Sparkle at Addicted to CAS.

Stamps are from Verve. I colored the cup with Copic's, then cut it out using my Brother Scan N Cut. Added some puffy paint and heat embossed it so that it looks like whipped topping. The little snowflake in the middle of the cup is from PTI.

Cut a snow flake out of glitter paper for the sparkle and then also added some bling into the middle of each of the stamped snowflakes using the stardust gel pen.

Thanks for stopping by.

Big cups

Hello. Playing in the Winter coffee lovers blog hop.


Coffee related stamps are from Technique Tuesday. Plaid background stamp in from Concord & 9th.

Coffee cup is colored with Copic's. Layered two together and popped them up using foam tape.

Flannel plaid shirts are all rage right now and my inspiration for this.

Designers choice challenge - Glitter

Hello!

It’s time for another challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week we were challenged by Joy to use some Glitter. Here is what I did with it.


I first stamped the outline of the Christmas ball ornament (3814-K, Ornament Frame)and colored the hanger with a silver marker. Then I used some sticky glue on the snowflake stamp (8905-I, Snowflake Orb) and positioned it into center of the ornament and added some teal glitter. Luckily, I had a piece of ribbon that matched. Tied a bow using the Bow Easy tool and stuck it on with a glue dot.

We just lost one of our design team rock stars. Sniff.  Patti G had to step down for family matters and that left a position open for Ester to join us. Welcome Ester and please leave her some blog love, link below.

Celebrate the Season

Hello. Yes, second post today. Whew. Trying to get my Christmas cards done and in the mail. So, this one covers the challenges at Less is More and TGIF.


Poinsettia stamp is from Technique Tuesday. I stamped this on water color paper and then water colored it using Zig clean brush markers. After it was dry I cut it out using my Brother Scan N Cut.

Sentiment is from Hero Arts and heat embossed. Tied a piece of gold cord into a small bow and glued it on the stem. Both Poinsettia and sentiments are popped up using foam tape.

I also added some sparkle to the poinsettia using the clear spectrum sparkle pen.

Thanks for stopping in.

Holiday snowflakes

Hello- Playing in the Freshly Made Sketch challenge today.


Sentiment is from My Favorite Things. I stamped it in Versamark and then heat embossed it twice in Silver embossing powder.

Cut out a few sizes of snowflakes from silver glitter paper and popped them up according to the sketch below. Also added one to the inside. Glitter paper is from The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby brand).

To be different I took out my notch corner punch and punched out each corner. I then stuck some fun foam behind it and adhered it to a 110 lb card base. Neenah solar white used here.

Adding this into the Anything goes challenge over at Simon Say Stamp too!

That's it for today. Thanks for stopping by.

Sketch challenge - Repeat Impressions

It’s time for another challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week we were challenged to the following sketch to create your card.


I stamped the moose, colored with Copic's and then fussy cut it out. Stamped the pine branch using markers that were directly colored onto the stamp. Did the ol' huff method to stamp it. 

Used some plaid designer paper from Carte Bella for the back ground and turned this into a masculine birthday card. I giggle every time I see this moose! 


So, what are you waiting for?!

I turned the sketch sideways. I had to put the sentiment on the opposite side because of his scarf.

Plaid designer paper is from Carta Bella. Kraft, black and pure poppy cardstock is from PTI.

CAS Holiday Cheer

Hi there! Playing in the Wednesday SSS challenge of Food and/or drink.


I kept this really clean and simple. Stamps and dies from Hero Arts. I used PTI's pure poppy dye ink to stamp the body of the cup several times. Colored the whipped topping with C1 and C00 Copic's. Holly is stamped in pine green ink from Hero Arts and the berries are done using Fabrika Decoru.

I used some fun foam to make the cup stand out on the card.  Planning on putting a Starbucks gift card on the inside!

Thanks for stopping by!

Celebrate the season

Hello. Playing in the challenge over at Sunday Stamps. It's a sketch this time around and this is what I did with it.



I used the window die from Simon Says Stamp to cut out the squares. Added the three snowflake dies from Concord & 9th (included in the build a tree die), which I cut out of glitter paper. That was a chore! The glitter paper is really hard to cut!

Sentiment is from Hero Arts which I heat embossed in silver. The card base is a dark navy blue.

I love the look of this, very clean and simple! Happy Thanksgiving.

Let in snow

It’s time for another challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week is our ever popular Anything goes challenge.


I used the snowflakes stamps and stamped them randomly in Hero Arts navy ink on the top 3/4 of the white card panel. Added the sentiment and then tied some silver ribbon at the bottom. Attached this onto a Navy card base and called it good to go! 

So, what are you waiting for?!
