2 cards, one sketch




Happy Friday.  I'm playing along with the CAS(E) this sketch, I did two versions for this week's challenge.  The first card was inspired by my slight obsession with Project Runway.  I used an upcycled letterpress piece for the dress form and a button to "make it work."  My second card uses Altenew stamps and a MFT hi die with a PTI tag die.

Welcome to another Tag You're It Challenge, this month it's an interactive tag (not my speciality, but that's the point of challenges, right?).  So I made a shaker tag....  Hope to see how you get outside of your "norm" and play along.

Coffee Cards


Two cards today (I actually have a back log of things I've shared over on Instagram, but I'll update them here maybe tomorrow?).  My first card is up on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog.  I just love white on white...  and to add a little extra texture to the background I used a MFT die to create the stitching.  For my second card I used another piece of the Alcohol Inks on Yupo paper and MFT dies with an Altenew sentiment for this week's MFT Sketch Challenge.  Hope these coffee cards with a pop of color inspire you (even if it's just to drink another cup of coffee).

thinking of you


Hello, I'm up on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog today with this card.  The letterpress paper from my stash (it's an upcycled wedding invitiation) was turned into a sympathy card for a friend who recently lost her dog.  I've paired the CASual Fridays coffee mug with an Avery Elle sentiment, Lil Inkers woodgrain die and some MFT banner dies.

round up of cards


So I survived my excess coffee loving card making fun (the grand total this year was 69 and I did an amazing job of trying to use as many super sponsors for the hop as possible, a bit of a rabbit hole).  But, then I cleaned my craft room (see Instagram for proof) and got back to tinkering... just getting slightly lazy on actually posting them on the blog.  So here's a round up of creative fun I've been up to in the last week.  The top card is for Laurel's Inspired By Challenge.


This card is for the current CAS(E) this sketch.


This was for last week's MFT Sketch Challenge.


This was last week's CAS(E) this sketch.

This one was just for fun.


And this is yesterday's Coffee Loving Cardmakers card.

a sunny hello....


My final two projects for the Coffee Loving Cardmakers hop.. what FUN!   The grand total was 69!


a latte birthday wishes and more...


TGIF... we'll see if this is really the last of the Spring Summer Coffee Loving Cardmakers hop fun....   but I'm going to post these and recognize that I have to cut myself off at some stage.  My first card uses goodies from Fun Stampers Journey, Lil Inkers, Papertrey Ink.


This card uses a Sugarpea Designs sentiment and PTI die cuts and Fun Stampers Journey coffee rings.


Love mixing and matching....  Honey Bee Stamps and Sugarpea Designs sentiments...


Reverse Confetti tag, Sugarpea Designs coffee sentiment, PTI coffee cup.
