Coffee Loving Cardmakers – Fall | Winter Hop

Hello everyone! Very happy to be a super sponsor for another Coffee Loving Cardmakers hop! I actually think I’m a little extra excited this time because we’re also having a new release of super fun products today too!!!

We’re releasing a handful of new embellishments along with two new other products too! We have Twiddler’s Nook Stand Up Blending Brushes available! I’m so excited about this and hope you love them too! We also have mesh zipper pouches to hold your embellishments or project pieces! I know, so many exclamations points. Sorry not sorry. I’m really excited, friends!

Okay, so we’ve got our own blending brushes now. They have bright white bristles, come with a cap and stand up on their own. However! They coordinate with our magnetic color coding caps which also coordinate with all of our platforms so they have a place to be. The magnets in the color caps stick to the metal in our platforms so you can have your brushes at your fingertips and they don’t fall over if you bump your desk. Click HERE to check it all out!

Our new mesh zipper pouches measure 6×9 inches and have a gorgeous blue zipper. They work great to keep embellishment bags under control or pieces to your projects that are in process. These are also amazing if you’re a traveling crafter to pack things in manageable amounts. Click HERE to check them out!

Pro Tip: I love cleaning the outside with rubbing alcohol and decorating them with my waterproof stickers!

We also have 5 new embellishment mixes to share with you today! So much fun and so much great color! I hope you enjoy creating with them.

I would love it if you headed to the shop to check out all the great things we have to offer! If you see something you like, use the code COFFEE10 to save 10% on your order from today through November 18.

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!

BYSHC – Falling for the Holidays Hop

Hey friends! So excited to be sponsoring another BYSHC Hop! Today I have a super simple and fun shaker tag to share with you using one of our embellishments and, of course, I use our crafty tools whenever I craft!

To create my tag, I stamped Santa and the holly from Avery Elle’s Ho Ho Holidays using my pressure pal and colored them with my copic markers. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and set that part aside.

For the tag I used the new Avery Elle Snowy Tag dies. I cut multiple layers to create the different elements.

Whole tag – 1 acetate, 1 white glitter cardstock and 1 white cardstock
Frame – 1 black
Snowy elements – sky portion from ink blended cardstock using blueprint sketch and salvaged patina distress oxide, hill from white cardstock

I used liquid glue to adhere the glitter tag to the white. This give the back of the tag a pretty side to write on. Then I added the frame to the acetate and finally the background scene pieces over the glitter. I added foam strips to the frame, sprinkled in some Snowy Day clay embellishments and sealed it up.

Next, I die cut the banner from the Avery Elle Easy Layer Tag and stamped a sentiment on it from Ho Ho Holidays. I adhered the images and banner to the tag front with liquid glue. Next, I threaded red sparkle twine through the hole. Cut another piece to tie in a bow and adhered it down.

Then, for finishing touches I added glossy accents to the holly berries and a bit of stardust Stickles to the ball on Santa’s hat.

Products used today:
Pressure Pal
Paw Print Magnetic Die Stand
Paw Print Embellishment Tray
Snowy Day clay embellishments
Avery Elle Ho Ho Holidays stamps and dies
Avery Elle Easy Layers Tag dies
Avery Elle Snowy Tag dies
Distress Oxide – blueprint sketch, salvaged patina
Bearly Art liquid glue
Scrapbook Adhesives foam strips
Glossy accents
Stickles – stardust

I appreciate you sharing your time with me!

Coffee Loving Cardmakers – National Coffee Day Hop

Welcome everyone! I’m so happy to be sponsoring another fun hop with the Coffee Loving Cardmakers! Today instead of my usual rundown of products we sell, I’d like to share a fun card with you and invite you to take a look at the shop to see all the things we have to offer. You’ll get a bonus entry into our giveaway if you check out the shop and comment with your favorite item too! Click HERE to visit the shop.

For my card, I cut down a piece of black cardstock and layered the Newton’s Nook Mugs stencil over top. I spread Thermoweb transfer gel blanco through the stencil and set it aside to dry. While I was waiting, I stamped and colored my favorite image from Newton’s Nook Pumpkin Latte. I used the coordinating die to cut it out and set it aside. Now that I had a bit of a color palette chosen, I switched to my card panel.

I took an A2 panel and die cut the stitched banner from Newton’s Nook Frames & Flags die set from the center. This is a sneaky way to save cardstock because you’re going to cover up the hole.

Then I inked up the edge of the panel with distress oxide in rusty hinge and dried marigold. I splattered the panel with water and let it dry. Then I inked the banner with distress oxide in shabby shutters and forest moss and splattered it too.

With my stenciled panel dry, and laminator heated up, I layered Snow Day Deco Foil over the top and place them in a Craft & Carrier sheet. I ran this through my laminator so I have shiny, bright white mugs. Next, I wrapped some recycled packaging around the panel, sealing up 3 sides and sprinkled in Twiddler’s Nook Caffeinated Crafting embellishment mix in the pouch. I sealed it up and adhered that to a dark brown panel. I added foam tape to the back of that and adhered it to the ink blended card front.

Finally, I added my image and sentiment banner with foam squares. Then, for finishing touches I added 3 hearts from the Caffeinated Crafting mix to both. I especially love the heart on the pumpkin. I think it’s extra cute!

Mama Elephant – Set of 4 Little Agenda Shaker Cards

Hello everyone. I hope your week is chugging along nicely. We have had some wild weather the last few days but it’s so sunny and nice today, it’s hard to believe the hail and downpours we had just yesterday.

Today I wanted to pop in and share a set of 4 cards I created using the most recent Mama Elephant release paired with shaker bits from the Twiddler’s Nook shop.

I couldn’t resist this adorable Little Line Agenda set. It was a freebie last year that I missed out on and was ecstatic when they brought it out for regular purchase. These cuties are so fun and these arrangements are great for so many occasions!

I stamped each of the images on Bristol Smooth cardstock with VersaFine ink and colored them with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. This is not my go-to coloring medium but sometimes a change is just so refreshing. I saw down and colored them all and then assembled them in the same layout for a great set to use or give as a gift.

I chose a textured cardstock from my stash for the background of each card, cut to 3.75×5 inches for that extra wide white edge. Then I used the new Two Scallop Frames die set to create the shaker mechanisms.

For sentiments on each card, I used the Easy Sentiments stamps and coordinating die. I absolutely love this set and being able to have multiple sentiments at a time is fantastic! I have pre-mades ready to go in white, kraft and black cardstock.

The shaker filler for each of these cards come from the Twiddler’s Nook shop. The kitties at the beginning have pink primrose confetti bits, the bunnies have fresh as a daisy clay bits, the puppies have a combo of love letters and sweethearts clay bits and the last card with the packages has wishing on rainbow stars confetti.

Aren’t these all just the sweetest!?! They have a really clean and simple design but I feel like the shaker adds so much and makes them so fun!
