  • Coffee Owls

    A fun, easy to make coffee themed card w/ adorable little owls & coffee printed paper. Perfect pick-me-up for a friend or relative who loves coffee.

    We are visiting Bloons Pinterest Board for this week’s Inspiration Challenge (IC921) & I found THIS picture. I liked the colors so I used them for the basis of my card.

    The owls were colored & die cut & I thought this cute coffee paper would work well behind them. The above view of the round cups reminded me of the balloons in the picture. I added very narrow dk brown layers behind the two panels in order to show off the detail edges of the dies.

    The owls were popped up slightly & I added some sequins for a little sparkle.

    Here are the Copics I used:

  • Most of All You

    A very quick & easy card w/ lots of possibilities. Change the small words of the greeting or the flower colors & you have a different card. Lots of different small greetings in this set as well as a coordinating stencil to color the flower.

    A big congrats to Girlia, the newest Featured Stamper (FS859)! She has a lovely gallery & I cased THIS pair of cards. I kept the layout w/ the quilted look bg & big flower, but I used stamps & a stencil instead of die cut flower & a divided greeting instead of a monogram.

    My card is very easy & quick. I used a quilted look piercing die on the white background. The big flower was stamped & I used a 3 part stencil to sponge the ink colors onto the flower before die cutting it. The YOU part is a stamp/die combo that comes w/ the flower set & I added the rest of the greeting on a small tag.

    I used a shimmer spray on the flower, but it’s very hard to tell in the pictures. The center part of the flower was stamped again, stenciled & fussy cut to pop up on top of the original flower.

    Thanks so much for stopping by!

  • Gold Glitter Trees

    A very glittery, gold Christmas card featuring some die cut trees & greeting. Easy to make w/ lots of impact. Change the paper or colors & you’ll have a bunch of finished Christmas cards in no time.

    It’s my turn to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS858) so a big congrats to Vikki! She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the gold trio element & horizontal layout, but I used trees instead of leaves, added a layer of designer paper & a die cut greeting instead of a stamped one.

    For my glittery gold trees, I used a roll of glittery gold wrapping paper & attached to plain card stock before die cutting the trees & Merry out of it.  There is one larger tree, but it was too tall to fit this direction so I used 1 medium & 2 small trees instead.  I attached them to a piece of ivory card stock, then attached this to a larger piece of green print paper w/ a very narrow ivory frame behind it. I die cut of the shadows for the Merry greeting..one in ivory & one in dk green. The Merry is attached as normal on top of the ivory. The dk green shadow was offset a bit to add some contrast.

    The center tree & greeting were popped up to add some dimension & interest.

    so much for stopping by!
