Coffee Goodness Overload

Happy Saturday, take 2.  If you don't like coffee cards, I highly recommend coming back to visit me in a week.  In the mean time I'm on overdrive and having way too much fun playing along with the Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop.  The first tag was take 2 for the PTI March Blog Hop (see the coffee card below with the die cut cup for take one).  I wanted to do flowers, but then decided that I'd rather just be inspired by the colors.  Everything (minus the cute Paper Smooches cookies & May Arts ribbon) on the tag is from PTI.  Click here to see the inspiration source and the rest of that hop.  And the rest of the cards are just me playing... sometimes you've got to stretch your stash and ink 'em all up (hence why there will be more cards, my apologies to the super star commenters for the Coffee Lovers hop), today's post brings up my current tally to 24 projects, but who's counting?

given enough coffee

Okay, round 2 for the Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop... you knew I was going to go overboard, right?  If you don't like coffee, please check back in with me in a week.  The first card is inspired by The Heart Desires Challenge.

This CAS tag was inspired by the current Reverse Confetti sketch challenge.

Inspired by the new Altenew Sketch Challenge.

This card is a CASE of ~amy~'s recent card.

I heart coffee

Welcome to the Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop... I might...cough cough... have a small addiction problem to coffee themed coffee stamps, so I love this hop.  It inspires me, encourages me and usually ends up costing me money.  So... last round I made over 40 cards, while ~amy~ says I don't have to beat my record... we'll see...  So with that in mind, here are some cards to start this hop off.

Inspired by the current Mojo Monday sketch.

Tag inspired by the current Ellen Huston Pin-Inspired challenge.

let it snow

Today's PTI Make it Monday challenge is to make a chipboard window card.  So I made a snowy card to celebrate the amazing spring weather we're having...  So I made a card with foam instead of chipboard...  Truth be known I don't really love the card... so I made another card below for no particular challenge.  Okay, off to conquer my Monday to dos.

infinitely grateful

Happy St. Patrick's Day!  Not that this card really has anything to do with St. Patrick's Day... but... playing along with the MFT Sketch Challenge (truth be known I'm over here making coffee cards and tags when I get a chance....).

happy birthday

A CAS birthday card inspired by the CAS(E) this sketch with some stamps I had never used... and somehow I keep justifying buying more stamps....

dreamer tag

For today's PTI anniversary fun they asked to redo a project we'd already done, or improve one...  so I went back to the inspirational photo from Day #1 and made a new tag.  Here's a link to my first project.  I used some PTI map parterned paper, PTI tag dies, doily, Butterfly Reflections sentiment and some May Arts burlap string with a Reverse Confetti clear pillowbox.  Super simple... totally my style.

I heart coffee tag

The other day Nichole challenge people to think in multiples and I pulled out a MFT heart die that I have to create this fun background (I cased Nichole's card).  To get a bit of sparkle I added washi tape to a piece of card stock and then cut out the hearts.  The cup, sentiment and tag die are all PTI.  Happy Monday!

happy camper....and coffee

Happy Sunday!  Anyone else sluggishly starting their day?  Two cards... the first one for the MFT Sketch Challenge, I used MFT dies, Hero Arts tent, Technique Tuesday sentiment and some new Oxide Distress Inks.  My second card is for the PTI Anniversary fun, the challenge is to pull out your favorite flower stamp-- so I'm definitely trying to embody this PTI sentiment, "A good day starts with a positive attitude and a great of coffee."  Or today is might be 2 or 3 great cups of coffee.  While it was snowing here less then a week ago, it's so great to feel spring finally arrive... and loved seeing campers at the campground last night enjoying the warmer temperatures.

happy birthday flower tag

Welcome back to another Tag You're It Challenge, for the new challenge we have inspiration from Marion Vagg, loved the embossing paste detail.  I found this flower (most likely from Jen) when I cleaned my craft room over the weekend, so I decided to put it to use for today's project.  I can't wait to see how the tag inspires you.
