I Like You a Latte

Hi friends! I've got another fun little coffee card today. It was so nice to spend part of a day stamping last Saturday. I can't even remember the last time I made four cards in one day, and it felt GREAT!  And it's even sweeter since now I have something to share with you this week!


Today's card uses the current SCS Sketch challenge. It looked like just that... a challenge...so I had to give it a go!  The images and sentiments are from the new All My Love DIGITAL Set. I printed the pdf version on my laser printer on cream cardstock, then colored with copic markers and fussy cut.

I wanted to give a bit of dimension to the cups, so I sort of curled them with my fingers then put a skinny strip of dimensional tape in the center and glued the other edges with liquid glue.  I cut out the sentiment with a die cut, then promptly misplaced the die.  I looked everywhere, but couldn't find it, so had to make the embossed heart circle backgrounds for the cups just slightly smaller.  I added smoky slate mats, sponged with hickory smoke distress ink to give it a bit of depth, then finished the detailing with some gun metal Nuvo drops on the scallops.

In relation to the sketch, I extended the flag portion to go under the bottom circle, since it felt a little more balanced that way and then added a die cut heart using the Heart Quartet Die.

Hi friends! I'm back today with a sample using the all new All My Love DIGITAL Set. I got a little crafty time this weekend and couldn't wait to use this fun little hot air balloon image.


I'm also sneaking in just under the wire for the current challenge at The Card Concept. I loved the inspiration, especially the soft pinks and blues and the bows and that's where I started with this shabby chic card.


The papers are from an older My Mind's Eye Collection and I printed the pdf version of the digi set on cream cardstock, then colored with Copic markers and cut with die cuts.  I layered some fun papers and a scalloped border die cut across the bottom and finished with a hint of sparkle on the hearts and a seam binding bow above the sentiments.


Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope your Monday is looking up! :)

Sending You Love

Hi friends! This morning I've added an all new digi to the Verve shop along with two updated digis from years past. On my card today, I'm showcasing the new additions I included in the updated Love From Me DIGITAL Set (this set was available as a limited time download in Jan/Feb 2017).


I started with the heart mug, because I have a serious little thing about coffee mugs. They make me smile. Especially ones with hearts!  I printed the PDF (which is already laid out and sized for cardmaking) on my laser printer, then colored with copics and cut with the coordinating Happiness in a Cup Die Set.  I also colored the hearts, fussy cut, then added morning dew Nuvo drops to all the hearts.  The sentiment is cut with the stitched rectangle from the Falling Leaves Die Set.  The rest of the card was just layering papers, adding black accents and finishing off with a red and white polka dot bow.


The layout is the January Viva la Verve Sketch.  The sketch continues through February 1, so you still have a couple weeks to play along!

Well, that's it for now.  I had a doozy of a dentist appointment yesterday and my mouth is sore! Thanks so much for stopping by!
