I made 2 fun cards to share with you today using this adorable new set from The Cat’s Pajamas called Make Tea. I love punny sentiments and these are fabulous! Pair them with these to-die-for bunnies and I’m set! I love it all!!!

For my first card I die cut some patterned paper for my background. The rectangle is adhered to a card base and the pink circle is glued directly to that. The blue circle with the sentiment is popped up and then the green circle and the bunny are both popped up as well. I added some cute baker’s twine to the left side and some half-round black beads throughout. I love that bold pop on this bright fun card!

For finishing touches I added black glaze pen to the eyes and nose and glossy accents to the coffee mug. I often feel like this bunny looks on a Saturday morning before the caffeine has taken effect. LOL! This makes me want to lay down next to him.

For my next card, I decided to get inky and blend distress inks for my background. I started with twisted citron and moved up to cracked pistacchio, finishing with mermaid lagoon. I love how this blend turned out! Then I spritzed for that fabulous distress look!

I popped the distress panel up with foam tape and added a strip of red washi tape above it. I stamped, colored and cut my images out and then popped them up with foam squares too. Next I stamped my sentiment and started on finishing touches.

For those I added glossy accents to all the mugs and then glued these fabulous clay hearts all around. Can’t you just feel the love??? So sweet!!!

Don’t forget we’ve got a blog hop going on. Hopefully you’ve just come from Katie Brooks and now will head over to Lori Turner.

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

Peek-a-boo Thanks!

Happy Tuesday everyone! I’m up on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog today with my first post as a design team member. I pulled out those fabulous Avery Elle peek-a-boo pals again and paired them with the awesome cool beans set for this adorable thank you card.

To make it I stamped, colored and die cut my my panda from the original Avery Elle Peek-a-boo Pals set and the coffee cup, sleeve and beans from Avery Elle Cool Beans. Then I die cut the Avery Elle Quilted Frame from gray cardstock and, using that for a guide, inked spun sugar distress ink in the center of my card front. I popped the frame up with foam tape and adhered my cup and panda to that. Using my MISTI I stamped the steam in light gray ink and then my sentiment in black over that.

For finishing touches I added black glaze pen to the panda’s eyes and nose, glossy accents to the coffee beans and white gel pen accents throughout the images.

Last but not least, I added some adorable sweethearts clay hearts from Honey Bee Stamps on the coffee cup and throughout the background. Super cute and easily customizable by changing the critter and sentiment to match whoever your recipient is.

I don’t know if pandas like coffee, but in another life I must have been a panda, and I love coffee so we’ll go with that. Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed today’s card. Have a fabulous day!

Coffee Loving Cardmakers Design Team

Yippee!!!! I’m sooooo excited to finally be able to spill the beans…the coffee beans that is! I’m joining the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Design Team for the 2020 year! This is an amazing opportunity and I’m so honored to be joining the fabulous group of talented cardmakers!

To celebrate this super fun announcement, I made a cute little coffee card with one of my new Newton’s Nook stamps – Slothy Coffee.

To make it I masked off the top portion of my card front and blended distress inks, then spritzed them with water. I stamped, colored and die cut my sloth and popped him up with foam squares.

Using him as a guide, I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment in white. I love how it pops off the dark blue background. Then I added a strip of washi tape from my stash to break up the transition between the card front and inked area.

For finishing touches I added black glaze pen to his eyes, glossy accents to his nose and claws and the stripe on the mug. Then scattered Nuvo Crystal drops across the card-front for added interest.

This is a super simple but really fun card to make and share with any of your coffee loving friends!

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