4 CC #433 Masculine Greetings


Happy 4 Crafty Chicks Thursday! Nance is our challenge hostess for this week and she's wanting to see some projects using some masculine greetings. Cards for guys are ones that I do not make very often and I should have more of them on hand - so this was perfect!

4 CC #433 {Masculine Greetings!}


This card was very easy to create - the majority of the wow factor comes from the designer paper! We made it at a stamping club night - and we just fussy cut around a stack of wood on some designer paper and adhered it to another layer of nice paper...added the die cut Thank You and wa-laaa!!! Card idea was case'd from Pinterest...

Be sure to hop on over to the 4 Crafty Chicks challenge blog to check out what the rest of the Chicks have in store for you! There is some awesome inspiration in the hen house this week! Don't forget - you do NOT have to use the weekly twist in your project, but we would sure love it if you did! Thanks! Cheers....

I started by stamping her and coloring her with my Copics then fussy cut her out and made a cute little scene behind her with some hill and snowflake dies; then added some sparkle and shine with sequins and glitter gum drops:


Peppermint Kisses is the perfect sentiment as she is enjoying a peppermint latte from Starbucks...lol...mmm sounds delicious doesn't it?!

4 CC #431 {Anything Goes!}


Welcome back to another "4 Crafty Chicks" challenge. This week, it is our Crazy Egg Challenge and Tangii is our hostess-with-the-mostess. As there are 5 Thursdays in November, we throw out an Anything Goes challenge and do not have a twist. It's a creative free for all! Fun! 

4 CC #431 ANYTHING GOES

I really love this Happy Birthday die from Stampin' Up! and I figured this bright and cheerful background needed a golden sentiment - so what a perfect one to use, right?!

Baby It's Cold Outside!


Happy Wednesday everyone! Wow, November 28th already...where oh where does the time go?! It was JUST summer time a blink ago wasn't it? And now, the hustle and bustle of Christmas preparations is upon us! I haven't even started shopping - ACK! But...on a good note, ALL my Christmas cards are out in the mail as of tomorrow. Including this beauty I am bringing you today over at Coffee Loving Cardmakers


I started by stamping the sentiment and coffee cup with Cherry Cobbler and cut out the mug with it's matching die. I believe this is from Lil' Inker Designs...


 I added the layers - plaid paper, woodgrain strip, vellum circle, greenery, ribbon, then I popped up the sentiment and coffee cup to give it some extra dimension.


I LOVE plaid and these colors are so pretty together! It reminds me of a traditional Christmas...I added a few sequins to give it a bit of bling and finish it off :)



Thanks for stopping in today and seeing what I've been up to! Enjoy your Wednesday! Cheers!

4 CC #427 {Christmas}


Welcome back to another "4 Crafty Chicks" challenge. This week, it is Leanne's turn to be our hostess-with-the-mostess. She is looking for us to show off some of our projects with CHRISTMAS themes! FUN :) 

4 CC #427 "CHRISTMAS"

My card was made at a class last moth that a few girls and I signed up for and it was so fun! We made quite a few projects that day and you will be seeing more in the near future ;) 


We did some inking with a brayer on the embossing folder for the top part of this card and it turned out beautifully - it goes so well with the plaid paper! The green Christmas word is a die cut and we stamped "wishes" with red then added some punched out stars. I think it's so pretty!

Warm Winter Wishes


Happy Wednesday everyone! It's my turn to share over at Coffee Loving Cardmakers and I couldn't resist sharing this pastel cutie!

I have started making Christmas cards already and I am excited to show you all a card that I had made a while ago, and am now getting ready to make a bunch of them for the holidays! This bear and his coffee are sooooo adorable!


I started by stamping this cutie from Craftin' Desert Divas onto some Copic Paper and colored him up with my copic markers...then I cut him out and layered him with various dies and added some sequins and a paper pieced to-go mug.  


I LOVE the non-traditional colors for the holidays and the sequins remind me of snow falling inside a snow globe...so cute!

Thanks for stopping in today and seeing what I've been up to! Enjoy your Wednesday! Cheers!

Collab Hop with CAS-ual Fridays and Coffee Loving Cardmakers!


Happy Friday and welcome back to my blog. Today the Coffee Loving Cardmakers and CAS-ual Fridays Stamps have joined together to bring you a collaborative blog hop featuring all things coffee! Yay!!
For both of my cards, I am featuring the Coffee Talk stamps set and Coffee Cup Fri-Dies

For my first card, I wanted to bring out some pretty Christmas papers and use some of the sentiments in the stamp set:


I heat embossed the sentiments on the top and bottom red pieces with winter white embossing powder, and used the coffee die for the word coffee on the cup...I also popped up the coffee cup and coffee using foam dots for a bit of dimension.
For my 2nd card, I went for the Fall papers :) One of my favorite seasons due to the rich, beautiful colors!


I love this coffee cup in plaid! There are so many ways to use it!! And that baby mug is just adorable! 


Thank you so much for stopping in today! Be sure to hop on through the links below or you can jump over to the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog to check out all the details! Cheers!

Guest Designer fun with Bugaboo Stamps!


Happy Saturday everyone! Welcome back to my blog to see what I'm up to. I got a very exciting email last week and I get the extreme crafty pleasure of being a Guest Designer over at Bugaboo Stamps for the month of October! *insert big, huge grin here!* 

Today is Saturday and that means its time for a challenge over on the Catch the Bug blog. This week, the theme is "Cowgirls/Cowboys" and I just couldn't resist coloring up this cutie patootie called "Cowboy Chaps." 



I left a sentiment off the front so that he was the main focus...the inside is blank so I can use it as a boy birthday or just to say hello to a special little buckaroo! 



Here are the rules for the challenge:

*  Post your project to the blog, by 10/20/2018 at 7:00 AM EST
*  New projects only, no back-linking please!
*  Please limit your projects to 3 per person

You could win 10 free images (using a Bugaboo image), 7 free images, or 4 free images using any image! How fun!

Thank you so much for stopping in today - be sure to click HERE to hop on over to the Catch the Bug challenge blog for all the info and to link up with us! Cheers!
