Card Recognition

thanks a latte



I saw ~amy~'s card this morning and she inspired me to break out the Verve coffee stamp set and play along with the Mojo Monday challenge, so here I am waiting till the 11th hour.  In addition to the Better With You stamp set I've used a PTI tag, Simon Says Stamps die, May Arts ribbon and burlap string, Pebbles patterned paper and DCWV burlap paper.  My mini coffee holder is upcycled from an actual one (I have a whole box of them!).


And my second card was inspired by the Fusion Challenge's woodgrain background, I had some felt out and kept trying to come up with some fun flowers, but it wasn't working, so I used the Top Dog Dies heart doily and the PTI In Bloom flower, I added some SRM stickers to the velum and after I'd embossed the cardstock rand some distress stain over the card stock to give it a more weathered look.  I'm trying to think what I've been up to this week, my craft room is a disaster, but part of me thinks it may have been that way for the whole week and I just keep stepping over the piles instead of dealing with them.  I co-taught a business blogging class which went really, visited a local Native American musuem on a school field trip, saw the movie Frozen, took photos of the visiting Tibetan Monks, went for a walk...  Now all I need is some snow.... anyone want to help??

Nice work! Love your fresh colors, that kraft and aqua is fab.

Awesome take on the Fusion challenge, I just got that heart doily and will be playing with it tomorrow!

Of course you know I love the Verve goodies...and the woodgrain on your Fusion card is so cool looking. The texture is fabulous. So glad you could play along with us!

Two gorgeous cards, Erin! My crafting area is a disaster zone at the moment also. Maybe this week-end I'll sort it out. ;-) Thanks for joining us at Fusion!
