11/14/2015I can’t tell you how excited I am today to announce I am now on the first ever design team for the awesome blog and blog hop site, The Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog! And here is the entire wonderful team!… I’m absolutely THRILLED to be working with these amazingly talented and fun ladies! Now OF COURSE I couldn’t resist making a card for this Post, so I pulled out a bunch of Lawn Fawn goodies and created a Christmasy coffee themed card; so fun 😀 I used a BUNCH of Lawn Fawn products for this one (you can see which ones in the product list below). The images are colored with Copic markers. Here’s some more coffee themed inspiration from projects for 3 previous Coffee Blog Hops: Feel like you need a cup of coffee now? I sure do! LOL 😉 Thanks for stopping by today, and make sure you head over to The Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog to see the other FANTASTIC Teamies I have!
11/13/2015Hello Crafters! I have a sweet, cheerful one featuring DeNami Design for my second post today! (you can see the first one, a Thanksgiving card, here) I pulled out several DeNami Design stamps for this one:
- Mini Monster w/ Heart Flower
- Circle Scallop
- Assorted Greetings
- Forever Friends
- Teeny Holly Berries
- Mini Berries
11/13/2015Good morning, Crafters, and TGIF! I’m over on the AJVD blog today with a pretty card for the Thanksgiving holiday coming up! I’m using 4 AJVD products today: 2 die sets (the Grateful word die, and the Minnie Pearl die set), the Owl Give Thanks stamp set, and the Pure Gold Satin sequins. I created a 4 1/4″ square card.
When I die cut the tag, I actually die cut it shorter! This made it fit perfectly on the square card. And I die cut the Grateful die 7 times and layered/glued them all together with Tombow Mono Liquid glue. Then I painted it with Clear Zig Wink of Stella Glitter pen ink, and then a nice, thick slathering of Glossy Accents.
11/09/2015Good Morning, Crafters! I hope you had a good weekend! To start our week off, I’m over on the MarkerPOP! blog featuring 2 adorable new die sets from Paper Smooches! I made a Christmas card using the new Snowman 2 die set and the new Let It Snow die. I also used 2 other die sets: Pretty Pink Posh’s Stitched Banner Duo and Mama Elephant’s Basic Set. There is no coloring on this project; all the colors come from the Doodlebug 6×6 Sugar Plums paper pad. I added some Pretty Pink Posh cupped sequins for a final touch: the 4mm and 6mm Marshmallow. This was really fun to make; the Snowmna die is like putting a little puzzle together; very relaxing, and I could see die-cutting a bunch of them out and putting them all together while watching TV! Hope I gave ya some good inspiration; have a great week! P.S. I will have a fantastic announcement on Wednesday, so keep an eye out for that post!
Hello, Crafters! Today I finally get to announce that I am joining the AJVD Design Team!
They were actually fairly simple cards!
I hope you enjoyed these 2 holiday cards, and that you have some inspiration to go work on some holiday cards this weekend!
