Kathy Schweinfurth YOU ARE HERE



For my first card, I first dry embossed the background with a coffee bean embossing folder then layered pattern designs from Echo Park's Welcome Home paper pad.  I used this fabulous Fun Stampers Journey coffee set/dies, Coffee Helps! I copic colored the images and popped them up on the card.  To finish, I added one of the wood word from Fun Stampers Journey Hello Word Bubble set and placed black cardstock behind trimming it to the wood word piece.





For my next card, I used this awesome Fun Stampers Journey die set called Coffee First.  For the 'iced tea' cup, I cut the top from vellum and added sequins for 'ice cubes'.  The coffee cup was cut from cardstock and pattern paper.  The fishtail banner was stamped with a sentiment from Coffee Helps and then tied with Fun Stampers Journey Whip Cream thread!



I am in love with these new products!  Check out the new Fun Stampers Journey catalog -- it's chock full of wonderful goodies!  Next on the hop is the super creative Laurel Seabrook!

Dies R Us - Celebration Cupcakes

 

Celebrations almost always include some sort of sweet.  In recent years, cupcakes have been the perfect sweet and for those trying to watch the calories, mini cupcakes are the perfect thing!


 For my card today, I chose some yummy mini cupcake dies that come with the perfect little stand from Impression Obsession.  To start, I layered a light blue cardstock and a pattern paper design from Doodlebug Cream & Sugar.  Using one of the dies from 
Tutti Designs Nesting Dotted Oval Dies, I cut a paper pattern design from Lawn Fawn Spring Perfectly Plaid Spring paper pad.


I then cut the stand from white cardstock and the cupcake bottom and tops from different colored cardstock.  I attached the tops and bottoms, arranged them on the stand and used pop up dots to adhere them all.  The sentiment is one of the word dies from Karen Burniston Birthday dies.   The silver oval at the bottom is also included in the Impression Obsession Cupcake Stand die and can be used as a shadow or plate under the cupcake.

Color Throwdown Challenge #502

Wednesday, July 18, 2018

Happy Wednesday and welcome to a new Color Throwdown Challenge!  The beautiful colors in this week's challenge makes me want to sit at the beach in the warm sun watching frothy waves hit the sand!  How will this week's colors inspire you?  Can't wait to see what you create!

For my card today, I chose several fav products from Reverse Confetti...

I started by creating the background using the new Striped Circle Cover Panel and placed Stormy, Navy and Baby Blue cardstock behind the openings.  The frame was created using the smalles Stitched Squares die and popped on the darling little seal, which I copic colored, from Sealiously.  The sentiment from the set was white embossed on Midnight cardstock.

I'm excited to share my card in these fun challenges, too:

Pink & Main Diggity Dog

Monday, July 16, 2018


Hot diggity dog - it's Monday!  Ok, I'm not very excited about it being Monday, but I am definitely thrilled with Pink & Main's July release -- are you?!


For my card today, I created a plaid background using two of the stamps in the new Pattern Maker stamp set and inked with The Park and Riverwalk inks! These oh-so-cute pups are from the new Diggity Dog stamp set and coordinating dies which I copic colored.

And check out these new inks!  The colors are bright, gorgeous and coordinate perfectly with many of the pattern papers such as Sunrise, Sunset and Beach Babe.





What is your favorite product(s) from the new release?

Dies R Us - Country Summer

Friday, July 13, 2018


Summer is one of my favorite seasons! We've had a lot of rain storms this summer which the flowers and plants have loved -- everything has grown bigger than I've seen at this time of year!

For my card, I used the following products:



To start, I stamped and die cut the Lawn Fawn - How You Bean  jar.  Using the Lawn Fawn - How You Bean dies, I cut a light blue cardstock and made a wavy trim to the top.  I cut a slit in the top and bottom of the rim of the jar to slip in the die cut stems from Impression Obsession - Strawberry Set.

Using the Impression Obsession - Strawberry Set, I cut the strawberries, stems, leaves and flowers.  The darling berry carton is from Impression Obsession - Tomato Carton.
