FMS 190 Like You A Latte

Here’s my take on Freshly Made Sketches 190 (FMS 190): Like You A Latte!  It also works for the Heart2HeartChallenge – to create a man’s card.  I made this for my husband for Father’s Day.

All product are Close to My Heart except the Stickles I dug out a very old stamp set – Coffee Stain. We love all things coffee in our house so I tend to keep these sets long past their retirement date!  I used one of my favorites from the Seasonal Expressions, C1616 Treats of Friendship:

I took Jackson Paper, Colonial White Card from the Value Pack, Cocoa paper, and Memento Cocoa ink.  Little distressing with ink, some Stickles, Enameled Hearts, and lots of random stamping:

Jackson is the name of the game!

Jackson is my featured paper pack for June.  On June 13, we’ll be doing the Jackson WOTG from 12-3pm, followed by a crop until 9pm.  You still have a day to sign up!

1506-maincarousel-jackson-paper-usThe colors in Jackson are all about being outdoors.  They are gender neutral.  Best of all, not only do you have the coordinating compliments and assortment designed to match the Jackson paper pack,  you have all the addition embellishments from the My Crush Wildwood and My Crush In The Pink which work extremely well!

Smiles

A smile is the best thing ever and this card “Smiles” is the easiest card ever!!

Smiles WMI got the idea from our new Season Expressions.  The stamp set, A1172 Smiles Begin With You,  is featured as the front of a Z3069 mini mix album.   I decided to make it into a card.

mini albumI used the wider washi tape on it.  What I love best is since I did the sentiment, embossed in silver on black cardstock, you can use ANY washi tape you have to do this.  We made these for team cards and the Come and Play Card Buffet as well as making several using other brands of washi I had laying around.

washi tape

It’s so versatile and fun.  Brings lots of smiles to everyone’s faces when they see how quick, easy, and simple it is to make an awesome card.

You can make this card tomorrow at the Harbor Scrapbooking Day Event in Annapolis MD!

Smiles and Happy Creating!

Smiles begins with you….

This “Smiles Begins with You” card was created as I am working in refreshing my card choices May Come and Play Card Buffet!  I  love the Brushed paper with it’s water colored look.  It looks amazing with black.   I used one of the new stamps, A 1172 Smiles Begins with You from Seasonal Expressions 2.

MMojo 394 WM

It worked very well with the Monday Mojo 394 design!

Mojo394The MM design provided for several options to show case the paper.  I used Z1994 Floral Embossing Folder to dry embossing the pear (green) piece.  I used Cricut Art Philosophy to cut out the roses as well as the frame for the image.  I wet embossed the image with silver embossing powder and the Versamark Pad.  To make the roses, I dampened them to roll them, used liquid glass to adhere the centers of the roses, sponged them to give them more depth, and put Z679 liquid glass on the roses to look like dew.

This card is certain to bring smiles!  Thanks for stopping by to look.  Hugs and Happy Creating today!!
