Cup of Christmas Cheer

Hi friends! I'm back with another quick card for the Winter 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.



I pulled out the Very Merry collection again and loved this little santa tag from the ephemera collection.  The sentiment from the Running on Cheer DIGITAL Set fit perfectly, so I used it as a frame.  Next I colored the big snowflake mug with copics and added a bit of stickles to the snowflake and brim of the cup.

I used an old fiskars border punch to mirror the scallop trim on the tag, then finished with a few rounded corners, some vintage photo distress ink and a polka dot bow.


Hope you're having a fantastic week! There's been an event or 2 every day this week for the family.  I'm headed out right now to Kellan's holiday celebration at school. He's so excited to sing Christmas songs to us!

Calm and Bright

Hi friends! I've got another quick little Christmas card for you today.  Here I used the Winter Peace DIGITAL Set printed on a laser printer and then foiled the image and sentiment with my Minc machine.


And miracle of miracles, I was actually able to capture a photo that shows the silver foil off. When unpacking all the Christmas decor this year I realized I have a bit of a thing for reindeer. Our living room kind of looks like a reindeer breeding ground! They're just such noble looking creatures, I can't help myself. But maybe I shouldn't have bought anymore last time I went shopping! {teehee} 

Anyhow, the card layout is simple, just square and circle die cuts with silver mats and a silver ribbon to finish things off.  Quick and easy... the perfect combo this time of year! I just love the soft, serene look to this card, and you already know I'm all about the aqua! {grin}

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you're having a fabulously, calm and bright holiday season!

Santa's Little Helper and a Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Hi friends! It's time for the Winter 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  If you've been following me for a while you know how much I love these hops. As hubby calls it, coffee is my "pinnacle drink". I like tea and hot chocolate and wassail, too, but given a choice, my coffee mug would never be empty!


And I love designing coffee images about as much as I love drinking it! So in honor of the hop I produced another digital set that released this morning. I wanted a really big mug of coffee that said Santa's little helper, since with everyone in the house feeling sick I'm living on coffee and Christmas cheer right now.

My card uses the cup from the new Running on Cheer DIGITAL Set, which I printed on my laser printer, then masked off the top and sponged salty ocean and faded jeans distress oxide inks to color.  The papers and the tag are from the Very Merry line by Carta Bella. I fell in love with this collection and bought it all this year!  Love this little reindeer tag from the ephemera pack.

I rounded the corners of my papers, added a silver bow and a wooden snowflake covered with glitter drops and was done.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! If you want to play along in the hop, just make a new holiday themed coffee/tea/or cocoa card and link it up to the official hop post before next Friday. You have to play to win, but there are so many wonderful prizes from the Super Sponsors, including a little Verve!
