Good Days Start with Coffee

Good Days Start with Coffee

I had a fun time making this card.  Been in a shaker cardmaking mode for a bit and this was great fun to use the coffee beans in the shaker with various toppings from Queen and Company.   Another card for the Summer Coffee Lover’s Bloghop.

I used Stamplorations coffee mug to cut out the center of the shaker from No Worries paper from CTMH.  Sapphire is the background cardstock (25% off this month).  Cut transparency out  and put on the back of the paper creating the window.  For the coffee beans to work, you need to double layer 3D foam tape.  Create a box on the Sapphire cardstock and add your shaker fillings in.

Mount the top of the card on the 3D foam tape.  Stamp the sentiment from My Favorite Things – LLD Perk Up in Sapphire on Lagoon paper.  Cut out the  “and you”.    Put the sentiments as shown.

Some of the beans are a little big and don’t shake around very well.  Love the brown and blue combination.  The card smells amazing with the coffee beans in it.  =)

Perk Up!

Perk Up:

Perk Up is a stamp set “Kimmie Girl” from Unity Stamps.  It’s part of the Angiegirl collection.  Be forewarned, they are all super cute!  I picked this set up to use for the Summer Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop because she looks like she’s ready for summer.

It’s all stamped on the CTMH watercolor paper, which is a smooth watercolor paper that allows for great movement of the watercolor and you can layer it.  I stamped Kimmie and the sentiment in Memento ink and masked her using masking fluid.  Then created the background with the watercolor palette from CTMH.

Once the background was dried, I rubbed of the masking fluid and painted Kimmie with the palette.  Take the CTMH Clear Shimmer Brush and go over the hearts on her shirt and on the cup to give them a little sparkle.  If you like using Wink of Stella, you need to check out the Shimmer Brushes from CTMH.  Better price point, more shimmer, and more juice!

Happiness in a Cup!

Happiness in a Cup!

This super fun card is “happy” because of all the bright colors and that for some of us, coffee is happiness.  Love the smell of fresh coffee beans and coffee brewing.  This card is linked to the Summer Coffee Lover’s Bloghop.  Stop and check out all the great cards. Better yet, whip out your own coffee project and join the fun.   It’s also made using the Freshly Made Sketches 292.

The papers are Prickly Pear.  The colors in the paper pack are nice and bright, just right for Summer.  Love the rainbow paper in the pack.  

The sketch is simple and fun to make.  The dies for the circles are from CTMH.  The coffee cup is Sugar Pea Design’s Coffee To Go Cup die set.  The sentiment is from Stamplorations Coffee Happy.

 No Worries Family Layout

Wanted to share another great layout from the workshop you can get free when you place a $25.00 order.  Cocoa cardstock is the base for all of the layouts in the workshop and you can get it for 25% off.  The No Worries sequins and the Enamel and Glitter Blue Dots Duo add the bling to the pages.

The title “Family” comes from the No Worries Compliments.  The mix in the Compliments is kraft chipboard and stickers.  On the arrows, put a piece of the scraps from one of the background and texture papers.

You can add flip flaps – 4×6, 3×4 and 3×3 – to get more pictures on the layout.   Here’s some close ups of the different elements from the pages that I just love.  You always need a layout for family events.

Store these great layouts in our wonderful albums.  Get your albums this month Buy One Get One 50% off.  =)

I Love you no Coffee

I Love You, no Coffee

It’s that time again for the Summer Coffee Lover’s Bloghop!  Here’s my first card for the blog hop.  All the stamps/products are Close To My Heart, except the stamp “Coffee” which is from Sugar Pea Design’s Caffeine Addict.and the Liquid Pearl that is in the center of the sequins.  You can join us in the bloghop as it goes from June 23 – June 30.  Lots of time to have a cup of java and do some creating! You have a chance to win many different items by participating.  It’s great fun to receive Happy Mail.  There are some amazing artists in this hop so take some time to check out the artwork.

I used the following sketch from Mojo Monday.  It is, in fact, their last sketch. =(  So sad for this to be their farewell.

Prickly Pear Workshop Your Way  has all the components used along with the sequins which are great fun.  Jack Cardmaking Stamp set has this cute little bear and the coffee cup, both of which have thin cut dies to match! Sweetness!

I crossed out “you” on the sentiment with a red Shin Touche Marker and took “Coffee” and stamped it above it.  I used 3D foam tape to lift the sentiment and bear up.

My finishing touches were to use a Shin Han Touch marker to color the liquid in the cup brown to look like coffee.  Liquid Glass is used to create the shiny on the coffee, eyes, and nose.   Liquid Pearl was added to the center of the sequins to pull more of the coffee color in.

Something New Something Blue

Something New Something Blue

My creative challenge this month was to play with something new.  I tried out the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks which I got for Mother’s Day.  I was excited to play with creating some different backgrounds.  This is my favorite.  I love how you can dry and layer different colors on top of each other.   Here you can see the difference between water and different colors layered on top of each other.

 

Jack Cardmaking Stamp set is great.  I love that it comes with dies.  When you are making a card or two, thin cut dies are the way to go.  Isn’t he cute? The “paws” are created to be able to be able to hold different things.  I used the “Bear Hugs” sign, put googly eyes on the bear, and Liquid Glass on the bear’s nose to make it shiny.

For the sentiment, I stamped in the dark blue distressed oxide ink but it did not pop like I had hope it would.  So I took Memento Black ink, shifted just a hair to the right and created a “shadow” behind or alongside of the dark blue ink.  I love how it tuned out.   You can see the smatterings of different colors.  I’m going to see next, if I can take regular pigment ink reinkers and mix with dye based ink and create something similar!

Happy Father’s Days

 Happy Father’s Day

Here is a wonderful Father’s Day card using the Jack papers and the Jack Cardmaking stamp set and it’s blessed set of thin cut dies! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate not having to fussy cut and thin cuts are wonderful when you are making a card (I prefer the Cricut for mass production).

My card design and inspiration comes from the final Mojo Monday sketch, 500.  It’s so sad to see Mojo Monday end.  However, it’s another season for Julee.  We can say a fond farewell to her, be grateful for all the inspiration she’s provided us over the past years and wish her the best for her new chapter of life!

 

This bear is so stinking cute!  I love the little arms and different things you can put it in there.

Use a brown, or in this case, kraft paper, and you don’t have to color.  Sometimes, time is of the essence and solid cardstock or kraft paper rocks to make less work but still keep the completed card looking awesome.  Did I mention that you can get all cardstock AND kraft paper 25% off until June 30?

Several patterns from the Jack paper pack were used to create the different layers along with the burlap ribbon.

Colors used for stamping match the paper pack: Archival Black, Ruby, and Juniper.  Color in the coffee cup with a watercolor brush and the Chocolate Ink Pad.

Use the Black and White Dots and Liquid Glass to create shine on the coffee in the coffee cup as well as the eyes and nose of the bear.  Such a happy bear.  Love him.

Best Wishes

Best Wishes

Man, it’s hard to say good bye to people you work with when you like them!  It seems that summer times brings retirements and transfers (military moves).  The No Worries Cardmaking Stamp s one of my favorite stamp sets with the chair and umbrella with dies to match!

While one of the sentiments is about retirement, you can use it for transfers or promotions as well.  The beach scene can be used for any occasion.  Just grab a different sentiment to use.  This set and dies will stay in my collection for a few years.

The blue patterned paper with the ombre palms on it reminds me of the Tommy Bahama prints I’ve seen in my past life of living on Guam.  Use 3D Foam tape to pop up the chair and umbrella which brings dimension to the card.  You can get the directions for free from my website.  The sequins that go with the No Worries paper, are great with the wood print or pattern on the them.  They are neutral enough to use with other paper kits (like Jack) and projects so you’ll want to get a few extra to have you your stash.

Retirement with No Worries

Retirement with No Worries

It’s been a long time coming to have fun retirement set and it works so well with the No Worries paper.  This is the No Worries Cardmaking Stamp Set that you’ll need to create the three cards that are shown in the CTMH Workshop Your Way guide.  I love any stamp set that comes with dies!

You an see how they match up to the stamp images making stamping and cutting out super easy.   See how the glass and starfish are cut out with the stamping done.   Have very clean cuts looks great.

Use the zip strip and the burlap ribbon to add layers to your card.  Add the awesome sequins that have the wood pattern on them.  Use 3D foam tape under the images to pop them up and to add more dimension.  Anyone retiring would love this card!  You’ll want to stock up with this ribbon and sequins because they will work beyond the No Worries collection and soon (August 31) they go into retirement.  =(

There’s no such thing as Blue Unicorns, right?

There’s no such thing as Blue Unicorns, right?

We needed a boy birthday card.  SG  loves the unicorn.  “Make a blue unicorn for a boy”, she says.  Using scraps, it’s not girly..right?  Maybe that top stripe with the purple or the bright pink a little girlish but all and all, it looks pretty “boyish”.

I do really like that I can use the thin cuts where I can stamp, then cut out the image.  Makes life so much easier than fussy cutting.  Love that CTMH packages the thin cuts in a storage envelope, has them cut out for you already (not hooked together so you have to cut them apart), AND they include the magnetic sheet.  The price point for the stamps and matching dies is amazing compare to others and you don’t always get a great storage envelope or magnetic sheet!  Great deal for YOU!  With this stamp set, you can cut out as many unicorns as your heart desires and stamp them in whatever color scheme you want.  Here are some of the die and stamp sets so you can check out what a great deal you get:

I laid out the stripes of paper in a diagonal pattern across the base white paper, 4″x 5.25″.  After getting one done, I decided to mat it on a piece of black cardstock, an 1/8th of a inch larger.  It make the top panel stand out.  3D foam tape the unicorn and banner.  Distress banner in matching Sapphire ink.
