Coffee Loving Cardmakers and Cats Pajamas Collaboration!

No photo description available.

Happy Thursday crafty PEEPS! Today, the Design Team from Coffee Loving Cardmakers is hopping with The Cat's Pajamas as they feature a new adorable stamp set called "Make Tea." It is available today over at The Cat's Pajamas store

This stamp set is so stinkin' adorable! I couldn't decide which image to ink up first so I did them all at the same time and whatever I didn't use on these cards, will for sure be used SOON ;) 

For my first card, I used this sketch from Sunday Stamps and colored in this sweetie with Copic Markers and used some circle dies to cut him out and layer. Although I am 85% team coffee and 15% team tea, this sentiment is adorable and I love it :) 



Here's a close up:



Here's a close up of my 2nd card:


I started by sponging the ombre background and placed it under the die cut heart panel, then assembled the card as usual. I colored in this sweet bunny and fussy cut him out to use with the hearts...and I fully agree with this sentiment 100% - there is no life before caffeine! ha ha



Be sure to hop along with us and the Cat Pack as we share some tea-lightful projects with you. Be sure to leave comments along the way as one lucky commenter will have the opportunity to win a fab prize from TCP! Thanks for stopping in. Cheers!

Eat, Sleep and Drink more Coffee!



Happy Monday crafty friends! I sure hope you are warm where you are because here in central Alberta, CANADA, we are in a deep-freeze, to say the least. Daytime temps are near -30C with windchills around -40C and night time low's are -40C with windchills around -50C! BRRRRR!!! I am enjoying a lot of warm bubble baths, crocheting and coffee as soon as I get home from work lol...remind me again why I live where I live?!? hahahah...ok onto my card...

I am up on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers today with this cute card made with some of my older coffee related stampin' stash. I came across this fun set from  Reverse Confetti - Drink More Coffee. Totally perfect for our winter right now ha ha! I decided to keep it fairly simple and clean - with some beautiful plaid paper.



I also die cut 2 coffee spoons from the Confetti Cuts that match this set from Early Espresso to add to the details of the card..so fun!



Thank you so much for stopping in to see what I've been up to - be sure to grab a hot cup of your favorite beverage and stay warm! Cheers!

Joy, Love, Peace


Happy Monday everyone! The big day is only 2 days away - are you ready? I am - FINALLY! :) I spent the day with my kids yesterday (teaching Kim how to cook a turkey dinner - and man, was it delicious!) and then I will be having another large family gathering at my house on the 28th. I am hoping to relax a bit in between and do some crafting!

I am up on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog today with this pretty Christmas card:

 

For this pretty Christmas card, I dug out this gorgeous stamp from Unity Stamp Co. It's one of my all-time favorite coffee stamps :)

 

You can use any color you wish with this stamp - it's such a bold, wow-factor stamp! I just love it. I added some puff paint to the bottom of the cup for some added fun!

Coffee and a Good Friend

Happy Monday folks! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. T'is the season for Christmas parties, get-together's and late nights lol...It has been pretty crazy for me the past couple weeks so I am hoping for some quieter evenings so I can finish up some Christmas cards and get to decorating my house! I am wanting to see my cute snowmen and my tree out and making my house festive :) How about you? Are you completely done and ready for the holidays or just getting started? I am just getting started....lol 

I am up on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog today featuring this super cute and fun card made from goodies from Your Next Stamp.

 

Coffee Cuties is the name of this super cute set - it features these 2 friends in the coffee cup and the sentiment. There is also a matching die for the coffee mug!



I used the Window Panel Die and layered a light yellow gingham designer paper behind then added the image with foam dots for dimension. Super cute and fun! 

 

Thanks for stopping in today - be sure to find some crafty time in among all the hustle and bustle of the very busy Christmas season! Cheers!
