Summer 2016 Coffee Lovers Bloghop: Thanks A Latte



13130832_10209657747231052_7266796962897251339_o

This is a fun card I made for this year's Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop.  I moved last month and am still putting my craftroom together, but I was able to find a few things to make this card.  I decided to make a little pocket to put a gift card or tag in.  I made the tag using my tag topper punch and used dies to cut the cups out of DP.  I found my almost forgotten stash of eyelets and used those to make the pocket.

Recipe:
Stamps:  Better with You, One Cup - Verve
Paper:  WW, Crumbcake, Early Espresso, DP
Ink:  Memento Rich Coco and Tuxedo Black, Early Espresso, Crumbcake
Accessories:  Tag Topper Punch, Verve Dies, Eyelets, Ribbon

Emboss Resist Thank You


I got to play with a stamp set that I have had for a while but have never used.  I love the style of this set but wasn't quite sure how to use it so I went to Pinterest for some inspiration.  I found many lovely examples but this one really caught my attention.  I loved the muted colors in this example of the emboss resist technique.  I added a ribbon and used a "thank you" sentiment for my cards.

Recipe:
Stamps:  Postage Due, Thank You Kindly - SU
Paper:  VV, Soft Suede
Ink:  Versamark, Baja Breeze, River Rock, Soft Suede, Mellow Moss
Accessories:  Ribbon, Postage Stamp Punch, Clear EP, Heat Tool, Sponges

Java Joy #1

This card was made for the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop 2016.  Coffee,. coffee, Coffee... is aal I talk about at work until that 2nd cup kicks in.  Those that know me, know that I love my coffee and that "decaf" is actually a curse word to me.  My family is of a Caribbean  heritage where as a  child is weened off the bottle or breast, the coffee introduction begins.

This card was made in celebration of coffee.  It is a simple design but for any coffee lover I think the image and sentiments speak for them selves.

Last of the Blizzard of 2016


In the past few days the temperatures here have been above freezing, even a couple of times in the high 50's.  The great amount of snow that was rapidly dumped on us over a week ago is melting into large puddles and streams.  I think this week should be titled "The Great Thaw of 2016".

This is the last card that I made during the Blizzard of 2016.  I CASE'd it from this card.  It was nice having an extended weekend with no where to go and nothing to do except drink coffee, watch Netflix, and make cards.
