If you're new to my blog, Hello!  I've been blogging for a bit and also have an instagram HERE.  I'm a coffee-holic that loves all things cute.  The Coffee House set was calling my name! 

 


Oh my goodness, the look of sheer joy on their faces?!  That's how I am with my morning coffee!  All my designs are clean + crisp to let those sweet guys shine.  Yes, they're throwing confetti.


This set is sure to get a ton of love from me.  The images are absolutely darling!  Love the teamwork with the french coffee press.



The Hedgehog Day set is next!  Are you kidding me?  Packed with sweetness and love the sentiments too!



My final card today features the Watch This! set.  All the previous cards were copic colored.  This one is Zig colored on Bristol with the Zig Blender Brush.


I was inspired by the Fusion card sketch and inspiration!


I was also able to use the Color Throwdown palette for this one!

My favorite cards are clean and simple, and you have nailed it! I love the softness of the Coffee House cards. And the bright colors of the Watch This! because dogs are not subtle! My favorite set from this release is Home Sweet Home, but I will be picking up the other sets because, as you have shown, the images are wonderful. Thank you for sharing your talent!

Love all of your cards Amy with these new stamps. And I couldn’t agree more, each set is sweet and darling, and once they get in my collection, they will get a lot of use! Thanks for inspiring me.

Love your cards. I love these stamps. I can't decide if the Coffee House or Home Sweet Home is my favorite.
Thanks
Ang

GetSewing said...

I agree, they have such joy on the critters! Anita Jeram's designs are very expressive. That is what I love about them.

Sra. Spitzer said...

HI,
I love this Anita Jeram series with CCC and find these stamps just irresistible! The free shipping really helps... but I choose one set to buy b/c I can't afford just to buy them all most of the time. I'd love to win a prize.... but who wouldn't?
Your CAS cards are fantastic. I love how you used PURPLE for the coffee cup/saucer - I'm a fan of purple. I also adore that "have a ball" card - SO GOOD! Love the way you colored that!

Sra. Spitzer said...

Dear Amy - I'm so sorry if I just sent you a note addressed to "Jennifer." I must have gotten mixed up since Jennifer is the next site to visit. I'm sorry! I'm getting toward the end of the hop list and I guess I am sort of dizzy after seeing so many cool cards by so many über-talented artists and designers!

LIZARD said...

Anything with the bunny rabbits is my favorite by Anita but I think my all time fav and most used CCC stamp is the lovely legs Shamrock version! I really like coloring that up for St. Patrick's Day! Cute, cute, cute cards! Those doggies are the bomb!

Jeanne Beam said...

Such adorable cards! Love the colors and designs...
Thanks for sharing.

DorothyA said...

Great CAS cards (the 1st two). I love the sentiments and simple but sweet friendly invite. The doggie card (and stamp set) is truly my favorite- it's just too much fun! Almost like going to a circus, seeing the dogs' antics and skill set LOL! I love your coloring and composition of this last card.

Donna said...

Beautiful cards! Love the coffee set. But the watercolored doggie card is my fav. Love the look!

Gab said...

Really gorgeous cards
