Saturday Coffee Cafe - My Peeps

Happy Saturday and welcome to the Cafe!  I'm so glad you decided to drop in to see what's brewin' today!
 

 

I giggle at this saying "Coffee is My Spirit Animal", because it's true for me :)

For my card, I layered two patterns from Echo Park Little Dreamer Girl paper pad onto the card base.  These darling little critters, colorful coffee cups and sentiment are from Ellen Hutson Latte Love set...SO cute!  To finish, I added a few Coffee Bean embellishments from Kat Scrappiness.

Nature's Surprise

 

We don't get to see hummingbirds very often where I live, but when we do it's such a wonderful surprise! They truly are amazing and a joy to watch! Know what else is truly amazing? The newest Pink & Main release!!


For my card, I first used the new Dotted Cover Die and cut the inside and frame in different colored cardstock then placed a third color behind the center, dotted piece. These beautiful images and sentiment are from the new Sweet Greetings stamp set and coordinating dies. To finish, I added a few Rainbow Pearls (LOVIN' all the new embellishments!).

Hello Ducky

 

Pink & Main’s July Release is filled with the sweetest products that you’ll love creating with!! New stamps, coordinating dies, embellishments, word dies, embossing folder and more — you’ll want it all!


For my card, I used the new WOODGRAIN EMBOSSING FOLDER for the background which I brushed light brown ink with an ERGONOMIC BLENDING BRUSH. I love the new word with shadow dies and used the BIG HELLO DIES here. These super adorable images and sentiment are from the new JUST DUCKY stamps with coordinating dies. It's also cool that the coordinating dies include ones that can be used with the sentiments. These stamps and dies are part of the Stamp and Die of the Month SUBSCRIPTIONS. To finish, I used the green pearls included in the RAINBOW PEARLS embellishment pack.

Saturday Coffee Cafe - Get Crafty

 

Happy Saturday and welcome to the Coffee Cafe!  I'm so glad you're stopping by today to see what's brewin'!


I love all things crafty or items I can use to craft with!  Besides spending loads of time at our local, independent craft store, Legacy Paper Arts (who I work for, actually), I've been known to browse the office supply store for an hour or more!  Please tell me I'm not the only one -- LOL!


For my card, I used several paper patterns from the Carta Bella Craft and Create Collection - such a fun paper pad!  These wonderful images and 'crafty' word die are from the Studio Katia Craftastic stamp set and coordinating dies - love, love, love!

Saturday Coffee Cafe - Tea Party!

 

Welcome to the Saturday Coffee Café!  I’m so glad you stopped by to see what’s brewin’ today!


Did you have tea parties with your friends (or toys) when you were a kid?  I used to love to play pretend and have festive tea parties with apple juice and cookies 😊 

 

These little cuties from My Favorite Things Tea Party stamp set have gotten all dressed up and are ready for a super fun party!  I just love the sweet little mouse in the cup and perfect sentiment.

Hope you have a tea party kind of day!

Life's A Beach


 My favorite place is at the beach!! If I had my way, that's where I'd be for the rest of my life, but - alas - I'm landlocked and have to image being there. Thankfully, Pink & Main's NEW RELEASE is filled with fabulous goodies to celebrate summer and make me feel like I've got the sand beneath my toes as I take in the wonderful salt air!


For my first card, I used the new Catch a Wave Embossing Folder to create a fun, textured background. This cool image and sentiment are from the new Sunkissed Stamp set and coordinating dies. To finish, I added a few Vitamin Sea Glitter Enamel Dots!


For my next card, I used the new Circles Stencils and Ergonomic Blending Brushes to create the sun then, masking the stenciled sun, used distress oxide ink to make the sky/sea/sand. These super fun images and sentiment are from the new Flip Out Stamp set and coordinating dies. As a finishing touch, I added a few Essential Pearls.

Saturday Coffee Cafe - Latte Love

 


Welcome to the Saturday Coffee Cafe -- I'm so glad you dropped by!  Grab your favorite caffeinated brew and check out what's brewin' today...

 

Coffee has never been so FUN!  My card features a delightful, new stamp set from Dare 2b Artzy called Latte Love Stamp Set.   For my card, I created distress oxide border and stamped the word border in this set.  On the right side, I stamped the coffee ring image down the card.  These super fun coffee cups are copic colored.  I love that the handle is a separate image so it can be added or left off making the cup your own!
