All Your Wishes Sneak

Hi friends! Happy National Coffee Day! Now that's definitely a silly holiday I can get behind.{grin} I'm popping in with another fun little card for the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. I haven't been able to participate as much as I'd hoped this week since Kellan has been sick with a high fever the past couple of days and has needed an extra helping of TLC.


But I did convince him to sit with me in my craft room and watch Marble Maze Teamwork Racing (his newest obsession, which I GLADLY accept after MONTHS of YouTube bowling videos) while I made a quick card in honor of National Coffee Day.  I've been wanting to make a coffee card using this sentiment all week, so here it is.

The cup, pumpkin and sentiment are all sneak peeks from the Everything Nice stamp set releasing this Saturday.  I added a bit of sparkle to the pumpkin and cut the mug out with the coordinating Pumpkin Spice Die Set. I did the text coffee background with stamps from the previously released Coffee set.  And since I had the Carly Simon Clouds in My Coffee song in my head, there just happened to be some puffy little clouds from the Partly Cloudy Die Set that hopped onto my card.  A smattering of fall colored scraps make up the layout and I added some touches of tissue tape and two wood veneer scribble stars for accent.


Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Hope you're having a fabulous week.  See you back here on Saturday for the Verve Release Hop!

Getting Together

Hi friends!  Happy Tuesday!  I'm back with another card for the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. And I'm being a little sneaky with another peek at another new set releasing from Verve this Saturday, October 1.


After strolling through some of the cards on the Coffee Lovers hop, I was inspired to do a little chalkboard focal point.  I even remembered a pad of chalkboard cardstock I picked up a while back on clearance at JoAnn's, so pulled it out and embossed the sentiment from Get Together in white.  And here comes the sneaky part... That little laurel is from a soon to be released set called Autumn Blessings.  Swoon.  I love it.  I colored it in with colored pencils, then decided it needed a few berries to complete the chalkboard effect, so penciled in some berries and outlined with a white gel pen.

The cups are from the Get Together stamp set and stamped onto a background created with Lindy's Magical powders.  I hand cut them, and slit a hole in one with an X-acto knife to tuck in a trio of leaves/feathers (also from the new Autumn Blessings stamp set).  The leaves are cut out with the coordinating Autumn Thanks Die Set and I made another set to tuck behind the kindness die cut (from the Great Kindness Die Set.  A few scraps of designer paper (don't you just love that swirly leaf one?) and my card was finished.

Hip to Be Square Mojo

Hi friends! It's the last Monday of the month, so we're going for a non-traditional shape with the Mojo Monday sketch this week.  It's hip to be square!

My card is a sneak peek of the new Angel Voices stamp set that releases from Verve this Saturday, October 1.  I paired it with some pretty My Mind's Eye papers and some glitzy gold die cuts to set things off.  This was a super easy 15 minute card, perfect for crunch time during the holidays.  :)  The angel is embossed in gold onto vellum and then I colored with Copics for a stained glass effect and cut with the coordinating Angelic Die Set.  The sentiment is also embossed in gold, then I simply sponged all my layers and glued them down, adding a bit of linen thread and a rhinestone to my sweet little angel tag.
