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!

Pretty Pink Posh

Hearts Make Me Smile | Pretty Pink Posh

Hello Crafty Friends and Happy Monday! It’s been a minute since I have been on here with a Pretty Pink Posh card! Between the holidays break, guests and germs, I’m finally getting back into a “routine” and it’s been really fun digging into my stash to find new stamps that haven’t been inked as I’m on a “no spend” challenge! 6 more days to make it a month!! I heard rumors of a Pretty Pink Posh Birthday release in February, but thankfully I have been saving my gift cards for that!

Okay, back to the card! To create this card, I started stamping the “outer” hearts from the Floral Hearts Stamp Set and the Large Floral Hearts Stamp Set with light brown ink on to heavy weight white card stock, and colored them in with copic markers. Once the coloring was done, I restamped the images with watermark ink and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder, and die cut them using the coordinating dies (Floral Hearts Coordinating Dies and Large Floral Hearts Coordinating Dies).

Next I created the background by embossing Petite Hearts Stencil (similar from Pretty Pink Posh : Scattered Hearts Stencil). To finish off the card, I built the sentiment using the Love You Script Die, Simple Sentiments Stamp Set and Simple Strips Dies, along with gold glitter card stock, black card stock and gold embossing powder. Finally added some jewels.

Newton’s Nook Designs January Release – Day 2 – Orchids + coordinating Dies

Happy Tuesday! It’s the first reveal week of 2022 over at Newton’s Nook Designs and I’m so excited to share a ton of inspiration with you this week! Today we are showcasing the Orchids stamp set along with the coordinating Dies.

To create my card, I paired it with the new A7 Frames and Banner Die Set that was revealed yesterday.

To create this card, I started by stamping the Orchids image from the stamp set twice with copic friendly ink on to heavy weight white card stock, and colored in using copic markers (BV02, 00, 000; BV04, 08; Y17, 15; E15, 37; C00) and die cut them using the coordinating Dies.

Next I created the card front by die cutting all the layers of the A7 Frames and Banner Die Set. I left the base and the frame in white, but inked up the stitched rectangles using distress oxides in Shaded Lilac and Wilted Violet. I tried to add the Petite Hearts Stencil with white pigment ink, but it didn’t really work as my purples were too light but don’t worry I have more card with the stencil!

I finished of the card with two sentiments from the Orchids stamp set embossed in gold and add the Orchids using foam tape and finished off with some jewels.

Books, Coffee and Snowfall | Newton’s Nook Designs

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!

Cup of Cocoa | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Monday y’all! I hope that you had a great crafty and caffeinated weekend! Popping in today with a winter themed card, incase you are done with holiday crafting, but still not ready to move on to Valentines!

I started this card by stamping ALL the images from the Cup of Cocoa stamp set on to white card stock and colored them with copic markers (sorry no combos as I used so many I made a mess and lost track!). Once the coloring was done, I fussy cut the images (I finally ordered the die, they just haven’t arrived yet!)

I die cut a stitch square and using some thin washi tape to make a grid that I then inked up using some distress oxide ink in a rainbow order. After removing the wash, I stamped a sentiment in the center square and added the colored images using foam tape. As always I finished off the card using some jewels and adding the card front to a 5 x 5 Kraft card base.

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!
