Strong Coffee

Hey all, one more post for the coffee hop, and unfortunately it might be my last for this round.  I have been buried at work and not enough time to get this done.  Sigh, that's how the cookie crumbles.  But... my card might bring good tidings for next week, perhaps it is a premonition, perhaps just a bit of hope. ;)

I think you follow me now. :)  

this one features several Super Sponsors including Ellen Hutson, Whimsy Stamps and Trinity Stamps.  

I used the Catherine Pooler Stamps from Ellen's, colored them with Copics and cut them out.  Next, I used Doodlebugs paper with the Slimline Fancy Frame die from Whimsy.  I coupled it with the Scalloped Slimline Frame from Trinity.  I adhered all the layers, stamped my sentiments and used foam tape to adhere my coffee cups.  Lastly, I added these Java Stop Embellishments, also from Trinity. 

Three great super sponsors and one great Coffee Hop.  

Hope you are having fun, I sure am!

CLC Hop Day 2

Welcome back to day 2 of the Coffee Hop!  For the past 3+ years I have been on the CLC team and participated in these hops.  I try to post every day of the hop.  I am not sure I am going to make it this time, but we shall see. Regardless, I have another card today featuring Super Sponsor Doodlebugs WA. 

Here is this fun card featuring these cute Mama Elephant characters from the Boba Tea stamp set.  I stamped and colored my images with Copics.  I used a black glaze pen for the boba and added white gel pen highlights.  I cut them out and placed them on my background, which is basic white base with Distress Oxides and some sparkle pen splatters.  Once everything was mounted, i stamped my sentiment and added some of these embellishments. 

I quick one today, but hope you like it!

Trinity Release Day!

Happy Trinity Release Day!  We have a ton of fun goodies to share with you today over on IG and we hope you will join us for the hop! 

Meanwhile, I wanted to share my card with you here too so you could have the details. 

My card for today features some old goodies, but lots of new ones too.  Let's start with how I made it. 

First, I stamped the images from Spring In My Step, Gnome Bunny, and All Cracked Up and colored with my Copics.  I cut the elements out and set them aside.  Next, I die cut some white cardstock using the Slimline Quilted Cover Plate.  I distressed it using my Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and Blending Buddy.  Next, I die cut some grass with green cardstock using the Slimline Scenic Border.  Next, I die cut the base of the Make-a-Spaceship die in Kraft.  I used brown Copic to create my own basket. I placed all my elements in the scene.  Stamped my sentiment.  Then I added the New Leaf, Fondant Florals and Butterfly Bon Bon embellishments. 

I think they turned out pretty cute, I hope you like them too.  Thanks for visiting and be sure to check out the Trinity Stamps Shop for the new release!

CLC Spring Hop &Trinity Sneak

Hey everyone, happy Friday!  Today is the kick of the Coffee Lover's Spring/Summer Hop!  It is fun and exciting stuff AND... I have some sneak peeks for Trinity Stamps too. 

Here is my CA-UTE project (I hope you think so too).  My mini coffee cup is perfect to hold and Easter or spring treat for someone special.  I love this darling bunny which is part of a brand new stamp set, available tomorrow, from Trinity Stamps called Slimline Bunnies.  

I stamped my image and colored it with Copics, cut it out and set aside.  Then I used the Mini Coffee Cup Sleeve and Decor Die set with some Doodlebug Designs Inc. DP for the strip that goes around.  I used Cardstock for the scalloped circle portion and the white circle.  I used a bone folder to curl the items and then used sturdy adhesive to put it all together.  I mounted my bunny using foam tape.   I wrapped this around my mini cup from the Mini Paper Cup Craft Kit.  I took a tag and used my Blending Buddy and added some orange distress ink.  I stamped my sentiment and used green twine and added it to the cup.  The last touch was to color the stopper with my Copics to make it look like a carrot peeking out of the top. 

I am pretty happy with how it turned out, maybe I'll give it to my favorite coffee loving friend. 

I hope you will join the Coffee Hop and check out the new Trinity release which is live tomorrow (Saturday 3.20.21). 

Happy hopping!

Creative Scrapbooker Magazine

Hey!  I have some exciting news today.  I finally attempted to get a few of my creations published and guess what.. they were!  YAY!

I am featured in the spring issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine!  

The category was cards that make you laugh and i did just that.   All the cards feature various products, but the main images are from Create-a-Smile stamps.  

This first one features a fun Oops Word from Whimsy Stamps.  I used Distress Ink with my MFT Stencil and Trinity Blending Buddy. I used Copics for coloring and added glossy accents to my flies. 

This one makes me giggle.  I wanted the background to look like a nice plush sheet of TP, so I used the Heffy Doodle Quilted heart die.  I used distress ink to make it pink.  I colored the rainbow poop with my Copics and piled them high.  The sentiment is from Your Next Stamp.  

My last card only features Create-A-Smile products with the exception of the Wonky Edged die from Avery Elle. 

That is my exciting news today, thanks for checking out my cards.  Hopefully the make you laugh!
