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!

For my first card, I used the oh-so-fun set called "Caffeinated" and I will definitely be using this set, along with the matching dies, a lot in the future! SO FUN!


I used the iced coffee/tea die and cut it out of the black front layer then secured it over top of the white card base in my Misti and stamped the image inside the die cut hole so it would match up. I then stamped the image again on the polka dot yellow paper and fussy cut it out. I used Copics to color in the straw to match the designer paper. 


I then stamped the "cute tea" sentiment from the "Caffeinated Two" set onto the same yellow polka dot paper and mounted it on the black front panel and used dimensionals to pop up the entire black panel for some added dimension.


Be sure to comment along the way for your chance to win a $25.00 gift certificate to the PS store...you can get yourself some of these fun goodies to play with :)

For my second card, I used the other coffee cup from the Caffeinated set and the "err mah gerd" sentiment is again from the Caffeinated Two stamp set...makes me giggle every time I hear this saying hahaha ... when coffee tastes good, I say it - A LOT! ;) 


I did a bit of paper piecing for the sleeve of the cup to tie it into the bottom layer designer paper...so fun!  



 Well, that's it for me...be sure to hop on over to Annette's blog HERE for your next stop on the hop. Thanks again for stopping in - have a fun day hopping! CHEERS!

coffee, coffee, coffee!!

 

Happy Monday everyone! Today I am up on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers BLOG sharing some "Caffeinated Creativity" with you all. 

Mother Nature decided to unleash some nasty white stuff on us yesterday morning so now our ground is covered with a couple inches of snow. It's too early yet. I do love the winter and snow, but we need to get our crops off first...THEN she can unleash all she wants LOL! We are scheduled for more snow today, but we are hoping the weather people are wrong and we start getting some decent temperatures.

Ok, onto my card. I wanted to use my new-to-me stamp set/dies from Reverse Confetti - called Drink More Coffee. I went to Pinterest for some ideas on how to use the set and I came across this GORGEOUS card from Jen del Muro and I had to CASE it...


I tweaked mine a bit - adding another layer of espresso card stock under the main panel, coloring in my hearts on the foam in the coffee cups, moved my coffee die panels over to the right of the card and added some pearls for more detail. The coffee cup designer paper is from the coffee pad at Your Next Stamp. Thank you, Jen, for such an awesome, EASY card to create with this fun set! 


Thank you so much for stopping in today! I hope you have enjoyed this installment of Caffeinated Creativity - grab yourself a warm drink and enjoy the rest of your Monday! Cheers!

KCC #478 {Packages/Tags}



Happy Thursday everyone! 

This week at Krafty Chicks, our challenge twist this week is "packaging/tags" and being hosted by miss Leanne. Since Halloween is right around the corner, I decided to dig out my Paper Pumpkin kit from last year (yep, I said "last year" - never been opened...head hung in shame lol) and got busy making these super cute treat bags...



The kit came with all the materials to make the treat bags and it was fun to just sit and stamp, attach the die cuts, glue and fill 'em up with treats...It will be fun to hand them out to the kiddos this year. 


 Thanks for stopping in today - be sure to hop on over to the Krafty Chicks blog HERE and join in the fun! Cheers!
