(Looking for my Paper Smooches Blog Hop post? It’s the post right below this one!)
Are you a planner? Just getting into planning? I’ve got a tutorial for you.
Stop by the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog for a quick tutorial on making your own page markers for your planner, as well as Washi tape storage cards.
These page makers (and storage cards) are a fun way to add a pop of color (and your personality) to your planner. Plus it is a great way to use up some of the patterned papers and stickers that might (emphasis on might) be in your stash of crafting supplies.

Alright! Enough hop talk. Let me share the card!
I had so much fun making this card. Created the hearts with the help of the new Stitching Basics dies. I simply set the heart die on cardstock and cut it three times. The result? Three hearts I added floss to.
I could have easily turned this into a love-themed card, but I instead went the thank you route with a sentiment from the previously released Fun & Flirty stamp set. It just seemed like a good one for it.
Alright! Not much more to say about this card so thanks, as always for stopping on by. It’s sure a treat when you do.
Do you like to add texture to your handmade cards? I’m up on the blog today for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, sharing a card that had couple unique ways to add texture to it. Here’s a peek-a-roo for you.
Can you see my two tricks? Hint: The background with the hearts. And hint, hint: The blue sky.
These were both super fun techniques to do. I’d be tickled if you’d check out the post for the scoop.
Thanks for stopping by. Be back later, gators.
I’m here today with a couple cards recently shared over on the blog for Paper Smooches. I’ve had so much fun lately going though my stash of Paper Smooches stamps and dies and creating a few cards every month. Sometimes, it’s easy to get caught in the “new, new, new” thing and forget about the good stuff you’ve discovered along the way.
Created this first little one with a couple different stamps (and dies):Fruitastic stamps; Fruit Icons dies; Hot Concoctions stamps; Sentiment Sampler stamps; and Kindness Sampler stamps.
I really wanted this card to be unique so I paired together several different sentiments. I think the end result is pretty nice. All words I’d love to say to some of my sweet, sweet friends.
This second card really was the result of me goofing around and pulling two stamp sets (Hot Concoctions and Feathered Friends) randomly and seeing if I could make something with them. After a lot of messing around (and dreaming up some ideas), this is what I ended up with. Fun stuff!
Alright! That’s it for me. I’ll be back later, gators. Thanks for stopping on by.
I couldn’t resist squeezing in one more card for the Fall | Winter 2018 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.
Meet today’s card.
This guy may look all clean and simple, but know it took quite awhile to put it together. All that coloring. Correction. All that FUN coloring! Wink!
The little coffee cups (as well as the words and the wand) are from a couple stamp sets from Studio L2E. If you haven’t been to their website, I encourage you to go…. fast… and see all their fun stuff. I am particularly fond of the wizard-inspired stamp sets.
For the card, I stamped the cup three times on cardstock. I colored them in with markers and fussy cut them out with my scissors. Then…. there’s always a then…. I added a few drops of Glossy Accents to the eye glasses! It’s subtle, but the end result is super cool.
The little bear was stamped and die-cut with a stamp set (and matching dies) from Ellen Hutson. His little arms just needed to be holding something… thus, he ended up with his very own wizard-style coffee cup. Forget realism when it comes to my cards. All things are cool when you stamp, right?
The little stars were stamped with a star from a stamp set from Sunny Studio Stamps.
Alright, friends. It’s late. I’m tired and I can’t possibly type another word. My ability to form a clear sentence is lacking. If you haven’t checked out the the hop yet, please do. So many amazing cards!
I’l be back again later.
The cards just keep coming. Yessss! 🙂
I was inspired yet again by the latest Coffee Lovers Blog Hop to make today’s card.
I once again whipped out the Thanks a Latte stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn. It’s such a cute set!
I stamped and die-cut the mugs, scarves and heart. I colored them in with markers and then set them aside.
I sponged some blue ink onto a card in a circle. I added the cups and hearts to it, and then stamped the snowflakes, steam and sentiments.
For a finishing touch, I added a few white drops with my white Nuvo Crystal Drops. I sure like it adds to cards…. and yet…. still keeps your cards relatively flat and easily mailable.
Alrighty. This post is short and sweet… and all I have. I’ll be back again later, gators.
Don’t forget to check out the hop. So many wonderful projects have been linked up so far. So…. stinking… many. If you love coffee, cocoa or tea, this hop is worth checking out!
