Happy Cupcake Day



Here is a card I made for a friend's daughter's birthday.  I CASEd this card I found on Pinterest using a stamp set I recently got from My Favorite Things.  I used my Brother Scan n Cut II to make the round edged rectangle and the scallop border, and to cut out the stamped images.  The dress was paper pieced and I pierced the edge of the rectangle.  The images were colored with Chameleon Pens and Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.

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

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.

Stamps:  Perk Up - MFT
Paper:  WW, Real Red, Basic Blue
Ink:  Cherry Red, Blue Denim - Gina K. Designs, Versamark

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
