Golden Butterflies


I'm on the So Suzy Stamps blog featuring this beautiful stamp, Blowing Butterfly Tree. 
To make my card I started with an A2 Sized card base, a white panel cut slightly smaller using a scolloped die for the mat and then the stitched panel in which I stamped the image using Versamark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder. For the background I used the Abstract Squares stencil and those amazing Clarity Brushes along with some Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana and Pool Party inks. 

Here is a close up of the gold embossing, I love to emboss in gold, it's so pretty!

Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day 7




I'm back with one last card for the Coffee Lovers Summer hop. 
Can you believe there is over 800 entries!?! Wow! 
I am sharing one made with the a couple sets from Sweet 'n Sassy.
To make my card I started with an A2 sized card base and a stitched panel using the Silly Stitched die from Lil' Inker Designs.
 I stamped the cup image from the set Fill Me Up on some patterned paper and fussy cut it out, next I stamped a select group of the hearts from the Grunge Elements 2 to use as the steam. The greeting is from the Fill Me Up set.

Quick card share using a new company to me, Newtons Nook. I seen this stamp set at Drive By Crafts and it was perfect  for my husband's Fathers Day card with him being a hunter.

Summer Coffee Lovers Hop Day 2




I am also sharing this card on the Sweet 'n Sassy Blog today.
It's day two of the Summer Coffee Lovers blog hop and today I am sharing another card using the Fill Me Up set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. This set is from our Creative Worship line, and is super cute and fun. I paper pieced the image using the left over pieces from yesterdays card. To make the background I used a sunburst stencil from Stampin Up and Clarity Brushes, they make stenciling so easy. To finish the card I added the rise & shine sentiment to match the background.

Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day 1




Hi there and thanks for stopping by,
 I finally got a chance to make some cards for the Summer Coffee Lovers blog hop, I used a set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. I am leaving in the morning for a week long mission trip and made some time to get some coffee cards made and scheduled posts, so be sure to check back during the week.

To make my card I started with a white A2 sized card base and added a 2 inch strip of patterned paper to the bottom. I cut another white panel 4.25 x 5.5 and then used a new border die from Lil' Inker Designs Dual Dotted Border, I love the look this gives to a card. The coffee cup and sentiment are from the Fill Me Up set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. I Love this set! I stamped the image on some patterned paper and fussy cut it out and added some foam tape for dimension.
