Simple Thanks



This a quick and simple card I created.  It is so quick and simple to make that it only took 5 minutes to make.  It is all done with embossing and no stamping.  The design makes this thank you card appropriate for a male or female.  I will be making more of these in different colors to build up my stash of thank you cards.

This Girl Just Wants Coffee


Here is a third card I made for this year's Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop.  Sometimes I just am in the mood to color images without having a card design in mind.  I keep these pieces in a box and I pull them out when I have an idea for a card or other project that a piece go with.  This MFT Pure Innocence image was colored with Prisma Pencils and paper pieced a few years ago.  For this card I cut out the image with my Brother Scan N Cut and then I cut off the flower in her hand to attach the mug.  The mug was colored with Chameleon Pens. 

Recipe:
Stamps:  Pure Innocence Water Lily - MFT, One Cup, Coffee Helps - Verve
Paper:  WW, So Saffron, DP
Ink:  Black Licorice - MFT, Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories:  Prisma Colored Pencils, Gamsol, Chameleon Pens, Ribbon, Prima Flowers, Brother Scan N Cut, Sequins, Nuvo Crystal Drops

Perk Up Your Day


This is the second card I made for the Summer 2017 Coffee Lovers Bloghop.  I created the background using a stamp from the My Favorite Things Perk Up stamp set.  Because Independence is coming up next Monday I chose to do a red, white, and blue theme.  I used shades of red and blue from Gina K. Designs ink cubes to stamp the coffee cups.  My MISTI helped with lining up the stamped images.



Recipe:
Stamps:  Perk Up - MFT
Paper:  WW, Real Red, Basic Blue
Ink:  Cherry Red, Blue Denim - Gina K. Designs, Versamark
Accessories:  MISTI, Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Nuvo Crystal Drops

Tea...Enjoy Every Sip





The Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop has begun!  Here is the first card that I made for this season's bloghop.  

Since it is summer I decided to stamp a tea cup with the summery flavors of lemon, lime and strawberry (ink).  I used my Brother Scan N Cut to fussy cut the lemon and lime wedges, and to make the banner around the sentiment.  Rather dig out my dies, I also used the SNC to cut a perfect circle around the teacup and the green circle layer.

Recipe:
Stamps:  A Nice Cuppa - SU, Get Together - Verve, Pick Me Up - Sweet 'n Sassy
Paper:  WW, Cucumber Crush, DP
Ink:  Strawberry Slush, Daffodil Delight, Cucumber Crush, MFT Black Licorice
Accessories:  MISTI, Brother Scan N Cut, Nuvo Glitter Drops

Mojo 498 Masculine Birthday



This card was made for 2 challenges.  The first one is the Splitcoast Stampers Technique Lovers Challenge #639.  The challenge was to make a card using the Smack Down Technique.  You can find out more about it here.  The 2nd challenge is this weeks Mojo Monday 498 Sketch Challenge.  

Coming up with masculine design cards is sometimes tricky for me.  The smack down technique provided the opportunity to use the Stampers Best Gears Background stamp to create this masculine birthday card.  To keep with the theme, I used a Tim Holtz embossing folder with gears.

Recipe:
Stamps:  Gears Background - Stampers Best, Party Punch - SU
Paper:  WW, Baked Brown Sugar, Basic Gray, Basic Black
Ink:  Tip Top Taupe, Smokey Slate, Basic Gray, Color Box Wicked Black
Accessories:  Embossing Folder, Ticket Punch, Brads
