A Cup Full Of Spring

Spring time brings new colors and flowers! 

Using paints, they were spread to create the background.  Then stamps add some of the interest.  A cup was stamped and colored.  Then, it was filled with leaves and flowers.  Buttons were used for the flower center.

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your spring.  The birds are starting to sing each morning!

American Girl

I am having so much fun with these face stencils because you can take them as far as your imagination goes!  

Using a fine point sharpie, the face was added to the card stock.  Stamps were used to add the hair.  Stencils were used for the stars and the background.  Her face has happy birthday stamped in a very light color.

When I think of hugs, kisses and birthday wishes, I think of a mother who gives birth.  What a miracle when each new life enters the world.  I think of the hugs, kisses and love you have for the new child.  That is the inspiration for this card.  I live in the USA so she bears the colors of her country.

Hi stamping friends!  Have you had a chance to play along with this month's theme or sketch?  It is a brew-tiful challenge as it features coffee/tea!  STAMPlorations also has all their coffee/tea stamps in the coffee/tea lovers area for easy that is my cuppa Joe!!

I adore the Abandoned Coral Distress ink and it pairs so well with kraft paper.  It seems uncolored images are popping up all over social media so today this card is joining the trend!  By adding pops of color, it works.

The kraft paper is stamped in brown ink.  The coffee image was stamped and fussy cut.  The heart and sentiment strip was stamped and embossed.  Now, to dip the coffee die cut in that lovely Abandoned Coral!!  All the elements were added and the card was finished with a few sequins.

Life is busy so take time to smell the coffee and stamp!!

Good Day Sunshine Mail Art

Don't just make it...mail it!

This fun mail art creates a scene of kids having fun  at the lake.  This envelope started by stamping the image and then masking off the address area.  The rays of sunshine were added through a stencil.  Then the leaves were added using a stencil.  Lastly, the sentiment was stamped twice.

  Thanks for stopping by and have a sunshiney day!

Musical Happy Birthday

Happy birthday to you my siblings!  One of the greatest gifts in life are my siblings.  We are there to cheer each other on, in time of need and just to laugh with each other and have a good time.  Every birthday, my phone rings and my sibling on the other end is singing happy birthday!  So this year they are each getting a musical birthday card!

I saw a canvas on Pinterest and wanted to duplicate it as closely as possible on paper.  After embossing the piano keys on the side, the black keys were colored in.  Black paint was feathered out with some splatters on the opposite side.  I had metal music charms that I heated and dipped in white embossing powder.  Each card get one metal charm and two paper punched music notes.  Happy birthday was white embossed for the sentiment.

Did I mention I have four siblings?  Yes, they all call on your birthday and sing the happy birthday ditty!  These cards will be perfect for my brother and three sisters.  They are also all different.  

Well, I am ready for their birthdays this year!  They will also each get a phone call with a sily birthday song!!

Have a happy day.

Hi stamp friends!  STAMPlorations is rocking the theme and sketch challenge with coffee/tea theme this month.  What do they say, bottoms up or good to the last drop?!

This color combo makes me happy and a few extras were added to this card.  This card was started by spreading the paint and stamping the background,  Then, coffee bean hearts were stamped and embossed in brown.  Since the background is so busy, the digi was printed and just a little color was added to the image.  What's brewing was stamped on the image.  The words from the Framed Coffee To Go stamp was stamped on the side of the digi image.  The word coffee was stamped on the ribbon.  A resin circle with coffee beans stamped underneath adds a little more interest to the card.

Oh boy, I think I may have had one to many cups.  When I started listing the products I used, I think every coffee set I own is listed!!

 Thanks for stopping by and while you are enjoying your morning brew, craft up a coffee card and join the challenge!
