A Big Cup Of Thank You

Hello my friends and welcome back to another weekend and another card.  I decided to make another card for the Spring 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.



The first thing I did was cut a tea cup from white card stock using the Tea Part die-namics from MFT Stamps.  I decided to decorate the cup with the Fresh Cut Florals stamp set from Wplus9 and Hero Arts shadow inks.  I coloured the base and handle of the cup with a couple of Copic markers to match the flowers.

I filled the tea cup with flowers for the Fresh Cut Florals and Freehand Florals stamp set from Wplus9.

The pink card panel was cute using the largest die from MFT Stamps' Blueprints 27 die-namics and the white panel was cut using the Simon Says Stamp's Stitched Rectangles dies.

The sentiment is from the Cup of Tea stamp set from MFT Stamps and stamped in Bubble Gum ink from Hero Arts to go with the cup and flowers.

I popped up the tea cup bouquet with foam tape and the last finishing touch was to sprinkle around some Pink Lemonade sequins from Neat and Tangled.

Hello my friends and Happy Friday!  I hope your work day goes quick and you can start enjoying your weekend.

Today, I made a card using the Freehand Florals stamp set and matching dies from Wplus9 and lots of different coloured inks.

This card is for a girl that works at my local Starbucks and who just got a great new job with the government,  I thought I would make her a congratulations card and give it to her on her Sunday, which is her last day.

This particular card was inspired by the one Dawn Woleslage, the owner of Wplus9 made in a video introducing the Freehand Florals stamp set.

Here is the card I made.

Nuts For You

We are half way through another week and it's finally Spring.  Now if only the weather would warm up, so that we can spend some time outside.

Yesterday I coloured up with awesome image from the Neat and Tangled - My Favorite Nut stamp set, using Copic markers and adding a bit of detail with Prismacolor pencils.



Today I made that image into a clean and simple card.  Even though it hurt a lit, I finally cut into the Perfectly Plaid Fall 6x6 paper pad from Lawn Fawn.  I thought the colours would work perfectly with the acorn and squirrels.

I cut two pieces of card stock with edge dies from MFT Stamps and popped up the panel on the card front with foam tape to add some dimension to the finished card.



Below is a list of the supplies I used.

Stamps: Neat and Tangled - My Favorite Nut
Inks: MFT Stamps - Black Licorice Hybrid Ink,  Versafine - Onyx Black
Copic Markers: Acorn Bottom - E11, E13, E15, E17  Acorn Top- E37, E39, E29  Leaf - YG03, YG63  Squirrels - E40, E41, E42, E43, E44, E47, R20
Other: Recollections - 110lb White card stock and 65lb Aqua card stock,  Spectrum Noir - 100lb Ultra Smooth Premium White card stock,  Lawn Fawn - Perfectly Plaid Fall 6x6 paper pad,  Prismacolor Pencils - Burnt Ochre,  Foam Tape

Thank you so much for taking the time to drop by and I hope you have a wonderful day! Kathy

Gardening Bunnies

I'm back again with another card using the My Monthly Hero kit from Hero Arts.  This time I thought the bunnies should be doing some gardening.

The background for this scene was done with card stock and dies only.  I used the ground and fence dies that came it the kit along with a couple of dies from Lawn Fawn and MFT Stamps.

Here is a couple of pictures of the finished card.  I'm not quite sure if I will cut off the handle of the shovel that sticks over the edge of the card, or whether I will just put it into a bigger envelope.




Below is a list of the supplies I used.

Stamps: Hero Arts - My Monthly Hero kit - March 2017
Dies: Hero Arts - My Monthly Hero kit - March 2017,  Lawn Fawn - Stitched Hillside Borders,  MFT Stamps - Cloud 9

I am still playing with the March 2017 - My Monthly Hero kit from Hero Arts.  The first card I made today was inspired by a card I saw on Flickr by Marcia Harper.  I really liked her card layout, so I made something very similar.
