Hi, all!

Back again with a quick card to share! Couldn’t resist making a coffee-themed card in honor of the Spring & Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop. I always enjoy seeing all the coffee-themed cards that are shared because of this hop.

Pulled out a couple Paper Smooches stamp sets (Hot Conconctions and Cyber Cafe) to make this one.

It was pretty simple to make. I stamped the cups and spoon on cardstock and then simply colored them in with markers. Once I did that, I whipped out my scissors and fussy cut them so I could put them on my card. Yep. Nothing fancy here.

The patterned papers I put on my card to make the background are from Lawn Fawn and Doodlebug. I always love when you can mix and match different patterns together and have them look like they were meant to be.

Once I added the cups and spoon to the card, I stamped some “steam” and a heart. I also stamped the sentiment right onto the card.

I finished the card off with a few dots or drops of Nuvo Crystal Drops.  Always a good finishing touch.

Alright! That’s all I have for now. I’ll be back again later, gators. Thanks for bopping on by!

Today’s Card (1-19)

Hi guys!

I’m back with another card to share with you!

Meet today’s card.

Created this guy with the new Breakfast Puns stamp set. My friend, Mendi, just released it along with a bunch of other new products for Sunny Studio Stamps. She was so kind to hook me with up  a few of her new products early for my birthday last month. (Thank you, Mendi!)

I couldn’t resist making a quick card with this little coffee cup. Happy face + coffee  = can’t go wrong in my world.

Cut the banners and rectangle with a couple dies from My Favorite Things. And the patterned papers are just from my scrap box. Really trying to use my scraps, rather than hoard them, get frustrated to have so many and then recycle them so I can start fresh…. wink.  Can you relate?

Added a few extra dots to the card with some red enamel dots (from Simple Stories) and my trusty bottle of white Nuvo Crystal Drops. Those white dots are kinda of light, but they are there. You are going to have to trust me!

Alright! That’s it for today. I’ll be back again later, gators! Thanks, as always, for stopping by!

PS-StitchedCircleDie-Teri

Just played to play when I made this card. I used the stitched circle die to make the cross stitch panel. Then I used the new Embroidery Hoop dies with it to frame the circle. I did place a solid circle of black cardstock behind it so one could see the stamped and stitched coffee cup design.

The coffee cup was stamped with the new In Stitches stamp set. Then I used embroidery floss to stitch over the pattern. Took quite awhile for me (a non-stitcher) but it was awfully fun to do!

By the way, you might be wondering about the words. I stamped those bad boys with the Cyber Cafe stamp set. Such a fun one.

Alright! That’s all I have for you for now. Be back again later, gators. Thanks, as always, for stopping by!
