On the 8th all the new Reverse Confetti stamps and confetti cuts AND the limited edition Quick Card Panels will be available for purchase. We will be counting down the fun until New Release Day!  Let's get started, shall we?!

Today we're featuring a new Folded Tag Sentiments set:

cardstock:  recollections cardstock pack  paper:  jillibean, pink paislee  stamps:  reverse confetti folded tag sentiments  ink:  ranger archival black  other:  upcycled grosgrain,  reverse confetti/love note confetti cut, doily, recollections white clothespin

Don't you love the yellow, green, white and black combo?!  I'm smitten with how Springy it is!  See that grosgrain ribbon?!  It was upcycled from some towels that I bought at Target.  This card is 4.25 x 4.25.  The Folded Tag Sentiment images are bold and FABulous.

Next up is some packaging...Now you can see the Folded Tag Confetti Cut in action!


I used a steel gray cardstock as the base.  I stamped the friend sentiment onto cork with a charcoal pigment ink.

This is what it looks like open:


I knew I wanted to stamp that CUTE chick from yesterday's featured release, The Tweet Life.

tea time.







I wanted to squeak in here and post a quick Tea card, yes, Tea not Coffee card.  I actually started drinking tea when I was really young.  It is generally what I will drink at work or in the afternoon.

cardstock:  recollections/110/white  paper:  pebbles/we go together  stamps:  avery elle/tea time  ink:  memento tuxedo, various copics other:  stitched rectangle dies, memory box/large coffee on the go dies, avery elle/tea time dies, starbucks coffee sleeve


The Large Coffee On The Go Die is by Memory Box and there's still one available at Butterfly Reflections Ink!  I used the back side of a Starbucks Coffee sleeve for my cup.  The tea bag is by Avery Elle, their new Tea Time set that I also picked up at Butterfly Reflections Ink!

The patterned paper is Pebbles, We Go Together. 

Here's the interior of my card...Wait for it...


HA...I love that sentiment!

I picked up all my supplies from Butterfly Reflections Ink, who is one of our Super Sponsors for the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

A Jillian Vance Design: coffee + love





Hello!

I'm up on the A Jillian Vance Design blog today, sharing a coffee card AND linking up to the Spring Hop!



Tuesday, March 3, 2015

home is where the heart is...




Hello!

We're on Day 5 of the Coffee Lovers Spring Blog Hop!

cardstock:  recollections/110/white  paper:  Gold Soiree Specialty Designer Series   Stamps:  Impress  Ink:  memento tuxedo, various copics  other:  cork, studio calico heart veneer, sewing machine, circle punch

I have a ton of coffee stamp sets...a ton.

This one is one of my newer ones from Impress.


I can't seem to find it online right now but here's a shot of it that I found on their FB page.


We're doing great on the Spring Hop!  


Have you linked up?!

coffee.




Monday...already?!

paper:  mme/jubilee/tangerine  stamp:  studio calico  other:  recollections/doily, mme/jubilee/tangerine sticker, Create a Smile/coffee chipboard

So, this 'card' is filled with a bunch of different manufacturers, something that I don't generally do.

I've been really loving the Create a Smile chippies...that's what the sentiment is made of, chipboard, not wood veneer....isn't it awesome?!  Create a Smile is one of the Super Sponsors for the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

So yes, my card base is a kraft bag!


It's perfect to use when you need to slip in a note or perhaps some cash'ola.

I stitched the interior so that the money could only go so far into the bag...LOL.  I covered up the stitching on the interior with patterned paper.

cardstock:  stampin' up basic black  paper:  fancy pants design/memories captured  stamps: paper smooches hot concoctions/cyber cafe  ink:  memento tuxedo other:  paper smooches/coffee & tea dies

I'm sneaking in here to post a quick card I whipped up!

I used the Paper Smooches Coffee Cup die and cut 2 in solid black and 1 in the patterned paper.  I layered them up so from a side view, it has a great black outline.

I was inspired by the current

Coffee Lovers Spring Hop: rule the world





Well, today is the day!

The Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!
Yes, I know that it isn't technically Spring but who doesn't love to celebrate Spring?!

For all the deets of the hop including the FABulous Super Sponsor & Flash Sponsors, please go HERE.

A big shout out to Chaitali for helping in all the graphics and setting up the new Facebook group and the new Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog!

My goal is to link up (almost) daily for the week long hop!  Let's get started, shall we?

I decided to start the hop off with a shaped card:


cardstock:  recollections/110/white, mft steel gray, papertrey ink vellum  stamps:  mft/perk up  ink:  fresh ink charcoal  other:  mft dienamics coffee cup, studio calico heart wood veneer, spellbinders circle

Coffee ● Polkas ● Wood Veneer

That makes me a happy crafter.


The patterned paper is from My Minds Eye/Jubilee/Tangerine



The stamps:



I decided to also post this card to my blog.  It was up on the Stories of stamps, paper and... blog

It's definitely a celebration since my Momma is turning (whispering) 75  today!  I made this especially for her!

cardbase:  impress paper:  neenah white, stampin' up basic black, papertrey ink vellum  stamps:  kellie stamps/epic  other:  mama elephant veneer 2014 calendar, studio calico heart wood veneer, divine twine/red solid

I upcycled a 2014 Mama Elephant wood veneer calendar.  I trimmed it to look like a to-go cup and slapped a lid on it...

Isn't that sentiment fun?

A big shout out to my bloggie friend Thanh, she RAK'd me that set:



Coffee + Naps = ♡♡♡

So, I'll be taking my Momma out for a birthday luncheon today and no doubt come home and nap...so I might be a smidge quiet on the hop front for a bit :)

Seriously thankful for this AWESOME paper crafting community.  For all the WONDERFUL people that I've met along the way...to the FABulously generous Sponsorships...to not only having crafting as a common link with you all but coffee/tea &/or cocoa too!
