Spring + Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Welcome, friends! I'm so thrilled to be joining in with Honey Bee Stamps for the Spring + Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop today. Honey Bee Stamps is a super sponsor and will be giving away a $50 gift certificate and 2 flash prizes for $25 each! 

I mixed a few different products to create my card for today. I started by stamping, coloring and die-cutting my mug from Tea Time. I then die-cut a Double Stitched Frame and attached my mug to the front. Next, I stamped, colored and die-cut the flower bouquet, from Penny the Platypus, and attached that next to my mug. I also added a few white polka dots to the tag with my white gel pen.

For my sentiment I mixed the Happy Honeycuts and Simple Sentiments and attached those below my mug. And lastly, I added a few light pink sequins to complete it!

Be sure to visit the Honey Bee Stamps blog and the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog for more info on how you can enter to win one of many great prizes!

A Rainbow of Love and Smiles

These rainbow cards have been a labor of love. I started them way back in September and just recently completed them. It has been a multiple step process … a little bit one day and a little bit more another. Finally they are complete and I am so happy with the end result. You can find all of the supplies I used below. Now to send them off and brighten the day of a few special people!

Have a happy day, friends!

Papertrey Ink May Release Countdown - Day 5

Hey there, friends! Here we are on the final day of the May Papertrey Ink Release Countdown. It has been amazing, hasn't it? I have two more cards to share with you using the new products introduced today. I hope you enjoy!

**Just a reminder that all of the new products will be available May 15th at 10pm EST!**

Up first is Text and Texture: Roses and Words to Live By: Courage. Both are truly beautiful sets! The rose background is a two step stamp … I stamped the first in Pale Peony and the second in Pure Poppy. I then rounded the top right corner and attached it to my white card base. 

I stamped the sentiment (from Words to Live By: Courage) in black ink onto a piece of white cardstock that was die-cut with the Noted: Pinked A2 Vertical die collection (also available May 15th). Then using the coordinating Words to Live By: Courage die, I cut 'courage' out of Pale Peony cardstock and attached it below. That was then all attached to my card front with dimensional foam. I also added white twine and a few sequins to complete it.

My second card for today features the Glorious Globes: May and Corner Adorner: May sets. Along the bottom of my white card base I added the new patterned paper that is also being released this month. The bases for my globes were stamped in Fine Linen using the Glorious Globes: Basics stamp set. Then using the new Glorious Globes: May set, I stamped one of the globe images included. Inside the pink one I stamped the 'wild & free', also from the new set, in black ink. After they were all stamped, I die-cut them using the Glorious Globes: Basics die collection.

I added a few stars (from the Stars and Stripes die collection - available May 15th) around the globes and a few clear sequins inside each one. The sentiment is from the Corner Adorner: May set being released on the 15th, as well. 

You can read all of the details on these new sets right HERE!

Thanks so much for visiting with me today. You can see what the rest of the team has to share by visiting the Papertrey Ink blog. 

Have a wonderful day!

Papertrey Ink May Release Countdown - Day 4

Happy Sunday to you and Happy Mother's Day to all of you beautiful & wonderful Mama's out there! Here we are on Day 4 of the Papertrey Ink Release Countdown. Are you ready to celebrate?! I have two cards for you today that are full of wonderful new products and lots of COLOR! Up first is Kaboom and Kaboom Stencils ...

**Just a reminder that all of the new products will be available May 15th at 10pm EST!**

What are fireworks without lots of color, right!? I used the Kaboom Stencils to create my colorful fireworks and used the following colors … Pure Poppy, Summer Sunrise, Simply Chartreuse, Berry Sorbet and Hibiscus. I used my distress ink blending tool to fill in the stencils on a piece of white cardstock.

After they were all colored in I used the coordinating Kaboom die collection to cut them all out. I attached them to the front of a plain white card base and then attached a few colorful sequins. My sentiment was stamped in black and then attached using dimensional foam.

Card #2 is filled with lots of color, too! This one features both Celebrate With A Bang and Stars and Stripes. Using Versamark ink, I stamped a white card base with one of the images from Celebrate With A Bang and then heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Using distress inks, I colored in the front of my card.

The sentiment, from Stars and Stripes, was stamped in black and attached to my card with dimensional foam. I die cut a few stars with the coordinating Stars and Stripes die collection and then attached them around my sentiment.

That brings Day 4 to a close for me, but be sure to pop on over and see what the rest of the gals have to share …

Thank you so much for stopping by. Enjoy your day!
