COFFEE WITH A FRIEND

There’s nothing better than coffee with a friend and good conversation!  This card was created to celebrate that fact.

I used the Coffee Cafe Bundle(145331) and Shimmery White paper to get the “recycled” look for the coffee cups.  The background paper from the Wood Textures designer series paper stack makes the perfect background as I was looking to give this card the feeling that one is in a coffee cafe!

CRAFTING IS FUN

Crafting is fun and I love to create so when this stamp set showed up in the new Catalogue, I just had to get it!  It’s called Crafting Forever and has some wonderful images to use!

Here’s what I created.

I used all of the colour families for our Stampin’ Write Markers to colour the container of brushes and also did a little paper-piecing with the Wood Texture Designer paper stack for the brush container.  If you look very closely, you should also be able to see our Gold Metallic Thread weaving over the top of the images.

Check out all the fun images in this stamp set.

Here’s the list of goodies that I used.

CASE-ING THE CATALOGUE

Good day to you and today’s card is a “Case” (copy and share everything) from page 18 of the new Catalogue.  I used the new Coffee Cafe Bundle for this one.

There are several different sizes of coffee cups in the matching framelits and I used the smallest one.  A quick and careful swipe of colour from the Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker was all that was needed to colour the lid on the cup.

Here’s the list for you.  If you are a coffee lover and know someone else who is as well, you may like to add this bundle to your stamp collection.

THE CUTEST PIGGY ON THE BLOCK

He, he, I think that the This Little Piggy stamp set is the cutest on the block!  And I really love and relate to the greeting on this card!

Isn’t she just the cutest and with the best greeting ever!  Of course adding that bit of the Naturally Eclectic designer series paper shows that she is the “gem” that she is for sure!

I was playing along with The Paper Players sketch for this and am quite happy with the simple and powerful message!

Below is the list of products used for this card.  If you think you might need this very cute stamp set, just click on the picture to go directly to my Online Store.

ORCHIDS ARE SO BEAUTIFUL

Do you like Orchids?  I think that they are so beautiful and was delighted to play with the new Climbing Orchid Bundle.

This is one of the cards that we had fun with in class yesterday.  I kept the background plain so we could show off those beautiful Orchids.  Perfect Plum is the perfect colour to set them off don’t you think?  We just stamped the images and then used the matching Orchid Builder Framelits Dies to cut them out.

It didn’t take too many supplies to create this card so this list is short.

SUNNY SMILES FOR YOUR MONDAY

We had an absolutely lovely weekend full of sunshine and smiles, so I thought it only appropriate to share this sunny card today.  After all, isn’t a sunny smile a great way to start off the week?

I “borrowed” the greeting from the Colorful Seasons stamp set and did something a little different to get that shape. TIP:   I first traced the outline of the stamp onto the whisper white paper, then stamped it with Old Olive ink and then cut it out with Paper Snips.  It’s a fun way to add a little interest to your project!

A CUT ABOVE:

I’m delighted to share with you that I was one of the Paper Players choices for A Cut Above on their challenge for last week.  This is the card I shared with them.  Thank you for choosing my card!

Here’s the list of great products that I used for today’s card.

COFFEE, COFFEE, COFFEE!

Ah, coffee!  What a great way to wake up to the day!  Today’s card shows the perfect cup of coffee to help you wake up and get on with your day.

I used the new Coffee Cafe bundle to create this card and it’s perfect with the matching Coffee Break Designer Series Paper!  Don’t you just love those coffee beans?

If you look closely, you can see the White Perfect Accents that I added to look like foam.

Here’s the full list of products for you.

QUIRKY CRITTERS FROM STAMPIN’ UP!

Hi.  Today’s share was created with the Quirky Critters stamp set and I chose to use the image of this cute little Quail.

Cute for sure, don’t you think?  I chose to use an Aqua Painter to colour this little cutie and added the piece behind the image from our new Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper.  The soft sky blue works beautifully to help set off that little bird.  I’m also playing along with The Paper Players challenge this week.  We are use create a Clean-and-Simple card with a feathered friend image so the quail was the natural choice.

Here’s the full list of products used.

ONE LOVELY ROSE JUST FOR YOU

Happy Monday to you and what better way to start a new week than with one lovely rose!  This card was made with the Graceful Garden stamp set and I love the rose images.

It’s perfect for watercolouring so I brought out our Watercolor Pencils and Aqua Painters to get just the right touches in that lovely rose.  TIP:  Use our Shimmery White paper when watercolouring.  It won’t pill while you’re blending the colours.

Notice that interesting layout?  It’s from Freshly Made Sketches and was fun to put together with the Layering Circles Framelits Dies.  The background looked a little too bare for me so I added that trellis image from the Graceful Garden stamp set to finish things off.  Perfect!

Here’s the sketch for you – you might want to give it a try yourself.

Here is the list of products that I used.

COLOURING IS SO VERY THERAPEUTIC

Do you like to colour?  I find it very therapeutic and really enjoyed colouring these two pretty birds from the new Hostess set, Feathery Friends(144307CM 144032WM).

The beauty of colouring is that you can use any colours that you want to make the images your very own!  This new Hostess set would be perfect for you!

We will be away for a family holiday in July, but I’ll be back in August and ready to book your Stamping Party.  Make sure to check my calendar and Contact Me to book a date.  I’d love to stamp with you.

Here is the full list of products that I used.  I needed a lot of Stampin’ Write Markers to colour those two cuties!
