Coffee Lover's Hop - Day 4



On to Day 4 for the Coffee Lover's Hop.  Half way through the days.

Once again, I used my Fuse tool to make this card,  [Hey, I had it out - might as well make more then 1 card!] and used the Verve Coffee Helps set again too.  [That set is fabulous!]

Okay that's Day 4.  See you tomorrow for Day 5.

Coffee Lover's hop Day 2




The Coffee Lover's Hop is still young - only day 2.  I am sure there is lots of amazing cards uploaded by now.  I'll check when I get done here :).

This is the card I will be using for my customers.  I think I made 15 of these.  Easy when you use the the sneak peek Fri-Die from CAS-ual Fridays [coming in January], along with a sentiment from Hero Arts Holiday Sayings [retired], and the tiny cup from Verve's Coffee Helps [and matching dies].

Off to check out the entries!  See you tomorrow.

Winter Coffee Hop with STAMPlorations - Day 1





It's Day 1 for the Winter Coffee Hop!  All week long on my blog, I will be featuring coffee cards. Some will be using some of the sponsors images, some will just be for playing along.  Either way, I had a blast making all the cards~

Today I am starting out with a brand new set from STAMPlorations; Big Christmas Cups. This set is so fun - lots of big cups.  You can see more inspiration over on the STAMPlorations blog, or I'm sure over at the Coffee Hop.  [I'm sure any samples were uploaded.]

Isn't it fun!  A big ole mug, and a fun stamped background.  There are so many fun images in this set!  I highly recommend this set! :)  I also used the Merry Christmas Word Die.


[Remember, you can save 20% off STAMPlorations products, by using my code STAMPGIRLVICKID.

Happy Little Stampers Challenges

Happy Little Stampers has a lot of challenges!  How fun they are all listed on the blog's sidebar, and easy to access.  I am joining in with 3 of them today.

My first card goes in the Watercolour Challenge; Anything Goes with a twist of Christmas.

 I inked up a background panel, and dropped water on it. I decided to use my foiling machine too. I used the ornaments from the Hero Arts Decorate Your Holidays stamp set.  I stamped them, and imported them to print on my laser printer.  Once printed, I ran them through my Mink machine.

It is really hard to get a good photo once the images are foiled.  This gives a better look - just can't see the pretty shiny effect.

----------------------------------------------------
I went on to join in the CAS Challenge; New Year and combined it with the Anything with Dies Challenge.

I used MFT Emmit Numbers & Symbols, Emmit Alphabet, and Pierced Circles Die-namics.  Talk about a CAS easy card!  Oh yeah~

Thanks Happy Little Stampers -- great challenges!

A Couple of Challenges

I'm taking some time and play in a few inspiring [to me] challenges.  For the first one, I joined in at Less is More #367 - red & green, and CAS on Sunday #122 - Christmas.

This card came together very quickly [I like that].  I can't believe I ran short of Christmas cards, so I made a few of these to fill in the lack.  I used the Ali Die Merry Christmas.

---------------------------------------------------------------

I also found a new to me challenge, [sadly, I am getting in on the last one].  Paper Sweeties #62 had a fabulous inspiration photo.  It screamed at me to play!


I am so enjoying making my own wood grain panel backgrounds.  I used the Dare 2B Artzy stamp set Family Stockings [with matching dies!].  Seriously, I adore this card!  Thanks for the great photo Paper Sweeties - I loved it.

Another fun day - thanks challenges!
