Pink & Main Sneak Peek: Starfish Wishes

Sunday, June 16, 2019


Without a doubt, my favorite vacation spot must have sand and sea!  I grew up near a beach and now that I live land-locked, I miss is so much.  Creating this card with some of Pink & Main's upcoming release products (available on June 20th) brought back many happy memories that I could almost smell the salt water!


 Wait til you see the new The Shore Paper Pad - you're gonna love it!  I layered two of the patterns and cut with Stitched Rectangles #1 dies for the background.  I then made a shaker using another pattern as the backdrop and cut thin cork using one of the new Reverse Scallop Circle dies.


 How cute is this little mermaid on her seahorse friend?!!  The image and sentiment both are included in the new Starfish Wishes set with coordinating dies!

Divinity Designs June DT Color Challenge

Saturday, June 15, 2019


 It's time for Divinity Designs Design Team Color Combo Challenge!  This month's color combo was inspired by the colors in the Spring Flowers 2019 Paper Pad...


For my card, I cut white cardstock using one of the Pierced Rectangle Dies and then blended pink, yellow and lavender inks using the Flower Burst stencil to create a background.


 Using papers in the Spring Flowers 2019 Paper Pad, I used the Alphabet Flags die to create the 'happy' banner.  Then I used the Birthday Stamp/Die duo to cut the 'birthday' word and stamp the 'to you' sentiment.







You'll want to check out the Divinity Design blog and enjoy the fabulous projects the rest of the design team is sharing today!

Sing To The Lord

Friday, June 14, 2019


 Every morning - at 4:00 am - the birds who have nested in our trees wake up and sing!  I think they are singing God's praises and even at that early time of the day, it's really beautiful!

For my card, I began with cutting cardstock using the Tri-Fold card die and cut papers from the Notable Notes pad using the layers dies in the die set.  

 

I then used one of the Circle dies to cut the light blue cardstock that I placed behind the 'world' die cut from the new Globe & Stand dies set.

 

I stamped the sentiment from the new Color My World set onto white cardstock cut with one of the Circles dies and layered with purple paper cut from one of the Scalloped Circle dies then adhered to the front of the Tri-Fold card. To finish, I added the Musical Notes dies cut from Notable Notes paper and cardstock.

National Iced Tea Day!

Monday, June 10, 2019


Happy National Iced Tea Day!  The Coffee Loving Cardmakers are thrilled to be collaborating with Super Sponsor SugarPea Designs on a super fun blog hop!  Leave comments along the way for a chance to win a $25 SugarPea Designs Gift Card, the more comments that you leave, the greater chance to win! Commenting closes on Saturday, June 15th at 11:59pm Pacific. Look for the winner announcement on the blog the following week.



For my first card, I layered green cardstock and two different pattern papers to the card base.  Using Reverse Confetti's See Through Tag die, I cut white and yellow cardstock to create a backdrop.  The 'iced tea' cup was made with SugarPea Designs Coffee to Go Dies and the 'ice cubes' are from MFT.  These adorable images and sentiment are from SugarPea Designs Pucker Up set.


I love iced tea!  My preference is green or black tea and unsweetened...hope my southern friends will forgive me as I know how much they love sweet tea!


My next card also features the SugarPea Designs Pucker Up set.  I first layered kraft and MFT pattern paper onto the card base.  As a backdrop, I cut white cardstock from Reverse Confetti's Stitched Hex Tag die.  The darling images are copic colored and I added some glaze on the pitcher and glass to look like condensation.


Hope you enjoy seeing the fabulous projects along the hop...and remember to leave a little love along the way!

Saturday Coffee Cafe - Thank You Coffee

Saturday, June 8, 2019

Hey, there Coffee/Tea fans and welcome to the Saturday Coffee Cafe!  I'm thrilled you decided to stop in today to see what's brewing!


Honestly, it isn't often that I 'ooh, ahh' over my own work, but this STAMPlorations set is so gorgeous and just came to life after the image was colored in that I even surprised myself :)


To start, I layered kraft cardstock on to the card base then two patterns from Bo Bunny Stay Awhile 6x6 pad.  Using one of the Stitched Tags Nesting Dies, I cut kraft cardstock for a backdrop.


This lovely coffee cup and floral image from STAMPlorations Thank You Coffee set is copic colored and fussy cut.  To finish, I stamped the sentiment from this set and added grape colored embellishments.

Super Sponsor STAMPlorations is currently having a 6th Birthday sale now through the end of June on all products in the Birthday Section.
