Coffee and Copics | Reverse Confetti

Hello, Hello! I managed to finish my 4th card for the Caffeinated Christmas Card ChallengeSnowflakes that ends in a few hours and wanted to quickly pop in to share it!

To create today’s card I used a stamp set from Reverse Confetti, the sponsor of this challenge!

To create this card I started by stamping on of the mug images from the Brew It stamp set in a teal color and die cut using the coordinating die. I also stamped the copics from Honey Bee StampsLet’s Get Crafty and colored them with copics (B02, 05, 12 and C00, 1, 3), before die cutting them using the coordinating dies.

To create the background I used distress oxide inks (in tumbled glass, broken china and mermaid lagoon) along with the Falling Snow Background stamp embossed in white on to some Bristol Smooth card stock. After adding the color I die cut it using the Circle of Waves die cut. I layered all the elements on to an A2 card base and finished off with a few sequins.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope that this card inspires you to create something and you get some crafty time this weekend! 
Happy Crafting!

Mountains and Mugs | Mama Elephant

Happy Sunday! Woah, what? I blog all week and then I have a card on Sunday too, whhaaatttt! Well I made this card that perfectly match’s the Caffeinated Christmas Card ChallengeSnowflakes so I had to she before the challenge it over!

I created this card using some of my favorite Mama Elephant stamps!

To create this card, I started by stamping some coordinating images from the Hot Cocoa Stamp Set and the Sweet Treats Stamp Set with copic friendly ink and colored them in using copic markers. Once colored I die cut them using the coordinating dies (Sweet Treats and Hot Cocoa).

Next I created the front panel for the card, starting with die cutting a windows using the Window Frames Dies, and embossed it using the Snowfall Stencil. Then I stamped and colored the mountains from the Scene Builder using copic markers and a snow pen. Make sure to die cut the mountains with the coordinating dies. Lastly, I created the snowflake background using the Falling Snow Background, embossed with white onto Bristol Smooth card stock and inked up with some tumbled glass distress oxide ink.

I added all the layers together, added the colored images using some foam tape, and finished off with a embossed sentiment and some confetti hearts.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope that this card inspires you to create something and you get some crafty time this weekend!

Happy Friday crafty friends! Hope you’re all having a great start to the new year. Popping in this Friday to share my first Newton’s Nook Designs card as them as part of their design team this year. Chase card is inspired by unusually, unexpected levels of snowfall in the Northwest this past December. We did not have a white Christmas, but we had lots of snow to make up for it through New Year’s.

To create this card I started by stamping the image of the girl from the Sips & Stories Stamp Set and colored it using copic markers (R05, 08, 14, 17, 22; Y15, 35; B02, 05; C00, 5, 7; E13, 15, 27, 34, 37, 57, 59) and die cut it using the coordinating  Sips & Stories Die Set

Next I created the card front using the Serene Stripes Stencil to dry emboss the striped pattern, and die cut a window from the panel to create a shaker using the Snow Globe Shaker Die Set.

Next, I created the shaker using distress oxide inks in Kitsch Flamingo and Salvaged Patina, and added glitter accents using the Petite Snow Stencil, and filled it with some clay confetti pieces.

Lastly, I embossed the “I’m so glad that you’re part of my story” which is embossed in gold onto black cardstock and fussy cut before adding it to my card front. 

I hope these cards inspire you to create something winter themed! Please make sure to stop by the Newton’s Nook Designs Blog for more inspiration and don’t forget to tag #NewtonsNook or #NewtonsNookDesign on Instagram to share what you created!

Happy crafting!

Sweet Treats | Mama Elephant

Happy Friday Crafty Caffeinated Friends! I’m up on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog today with a guest post! Thank you CLC and Amy for having me again! I’m usually a layer it up card maker, but today I decided to attempt a CAS card inspired by the first challenge from the new Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge, Snowflakes and my winter break being stuck in the snow! 

To create this card, I started by stamping the mug image from Mama Elephant’s Hot Cocoa Stamp Set and the other two images from the Sweet Treats Stamp Set with copic friendly ink and colored them in using copic markers. One colored I die cut them using the coordinating dies (Sweet Treats and Hot Cocoa).

To assemble the card, I started by dry embossing an A2 card front using the Snowfall Stencil from Newton’s Nook Designs. I layered the images using some foam tape to add a little dimension. I stamped and embossed a sentiment from the Sweet Treats Stamp Set on to a piece of black paper, and trimmed it down. As always I added some jewels to my card to finish it off.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope that this card inspires you to create something and you get some crafty time this weekend! 


Happy Crafting!
