I'm sharing my projects here on my blog too:

I designed two cards using the new release along with the Pigment Craft Co ink pads: Glow + Jade

Let's chat about my first card.  I started off with the previously released Eyelet Background Cover Plate Die.  I layered images from the Winter Bloom Set.  The sentiment is from the Christmas Season Sentiments set.

I'm loving the Pigment Craft Co Ink, the coverage is awesome.

I love how the Eyelet Background looks like snowflakes to me.

Next up is my other design.  I used the same Winter Bloom set but the primary color is Glow.

This time I used the Cozy Stitches Cover Plate Die.

The sentiment is from the Snow is Falling set.

This release is amazing!  I'll be sharing more projects in a couple days!  In the meantime, make sure you join in the fun over on Instagram!

Happy National Coffee Day | A Jillian Vance Design


I'm back with another project for National Coffee Day!  In case you didn't know, there is a National Coffee Day Hop that starts over on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog.  You don't want to miss out on the fun, inspiration + prizes!

My project today features A Jillian Vance Design:

I'm featuring the Cozy Cup Die Set and a sentiment from the BREWtiful Stamp Set.

This card measures 3.5 x 5.5 inches.  I used different shades of peachy colors to a persimmon color cardstock.

Before you go, you'll want to check out the sale over at A Jillian Vance Design:

That's it for me, make sure you check out my other National Coffee Day post HERE.

Happy National Coffee Day | Ellen Hutson LLC


Happy National Coffee Day!  We're celebrating hop style over on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog and you don't want to miss out!  There are a total of 25 Super Sponsors that are hopping along with a total of 26 prize stops!  There are several of the Coffee Loving Cardmaker Design Teamies that are playing along, there are nine of us that are sharing projects that are made with Super Sponsor Ellen Hutson LLC - Bear Cozy Kit!

Here's how I was inspired:

Let's chat about my Bat Cozy first.  I made the ears pointy and cut scallops on the cozy.  Here's a photo of the back of the cozy:

I did a smidge of hand stitching to keep the cozy together and used a circle for a bit of an extender while still showing the scallop details.

I decided to do a card too!

The bat from the Halloween Treat Tags makes me smile!  I added a to-go cup from the Leading Ladies - Cozy Lady by Brandi Kincaid.  I did a partial foiling on the pink moon with the Tiny Stars Background by Julie Ebersole - Hot Foil Stamp.  I used Crafters Companion Gold Foil.  The black panel has been cut with the Nordic Cross Cover and backed with C&9th Ballet Slipper cardstock.  The sentiment was computer generated on 80 lb cardstock and then ink blended with coordinating Ballet Slipper ink.  Yes I could have printed on a sheet of Ballet Slipper but decided to conserve it since I could ink blend for the same results.

That's it for me, I can wait to hop along!

Thankful | Honey Bee Stamps


I picked up some of the newest Honey Bee Stamps collection via Ellen Hutson LLC.  This card was inspired by Dilay Nacar + Jessica Frost Ballas:

I'm a fan of non-traditional colors and went with a pale peach to rust color combo for the Lovely Layers Sunflowers.  I'm pretty sure I need to collect ALL of the Lovely Layers collection.

That Autumn Splendor A2 Cover Plate is GORGEOUS.  The details are wow.  I used Dilay's technique of doing a bit of an off set with a darker color under the white panel and then a pale cardstock as the base.

The sentiment is from Bitty Buzzwords Fall Honey Cuts.  I used the same color cardstock as the sunflower.

National Coffee Week | STAMPlorations + Trinity Stamps


Did you hear that we're celebrating National Coffee Week over on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog?  We will be sharing sponsored posts so there will be inspiration + prizes!  Today we're featuring

I'm playing along today and sharing a project that features each of the Super Sponsors.  Up first is STAMPlorations:

I combined:

Some of you might recognize the paper...I'm using my much hoarded Basic Grey 6x6 pads.  What's the sense of hoarding?!

That sentiment CRACKS me up.  Check it out, STAMPlorations is having a SALE:

Next up is Trinity Stamps:

I recently picked up their Coffee Cut & Foil Die Set.  I love the bold lines!  You can literally Die Cut & Foil or just Die Cut or just foil.  

The word sentiments are from their Happy Hour set.  It has been heat embossed in copper.

Yup, the paper is still from Basic Grey.  

Remember to check out the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog for today's prizes + inspiration!
