Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop

Hi there!  It’s time again for the Coffee Lovers Bloghop!  We are celebrating coffee, tea, and cocoa by making cards and other papercrafts. This year they have combined seasons, so there will only be 2 bloghops, but will they be fantastic!!!   Here is my card for the bloghop:

  I thought a little unicorn magic would be in order for this time!!!  I cut the coffee cup by hand and used the Pinkfresh Studios Magical Unicorn stamp and die set.  I printed the sentiment on my computer and added a few embellies!  The background paper is from American Crafts.

Please be sure to go to the bloghop and check out all of the talented participants, it is amazing!  A special shout-out to my sister, who always inspires me, and gives me advice on my cards when I need I!  Have a great day!  “Be Good!”  Debbie

If you want any information on one of my cards, please comment and I will respond. I hope you all have a wonderful Mother’s Day! “BeGood!” Debbie

Newton’s Nook Birthday Theme Challenge – Holding Happiness

Hello!!  April is a big birthday month in our family!  My sister, step-daughter, and sister-in-law, all have birthdays on the same day in addition to about 5 others throughout the month.   Newton’s Nook has the perfect challenge for me right now, as I have a lot of birthday cards to make!  It’s called the Birthday Theme Challenge!  They released a new stamp set this month called Holding Happiness!  I love the set with balloons, gifts, and a cake, with the sentiment Big Wishes. This is a great set for cardmaking!!!  Here is my card for the challenge:

I had this cute paper from Echo Park, called Birthday Gifts, so I thought it would be a perfect pairing.   I colored the stamp using my Copics, RV14, Y06, B12, E00, and E01.  Hope you enjoy my card for today!   Make sure you check out the blog, there is lots of inspiration from the Design Team and the contest entries there. Have a great day!  “Be Good!” Debbie

 

Happy Easter

Happy Easter everyone! Here are my Easter cards for this year:

I was a bit obsessed with the Lil Inker peek-a-boo  bunny die!  You can do some really fun things with it!   I also used  Taylored Expressions (Iconic Wishes, Savior Stamp), Mama Elephant (The Bunny’s Hop), and Memory Box (Simple Chicks), and a few others too!  Hope you all have a wonderful and Blessed Easter! “Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!” “Be Good!” Debbie

Pinkfresh Studio March Challenge – Houseplants Thank You

Hi!  I am here with a card to join in the first ever Pinkfresh Studio Monthly Challenge!  I recently found Pinkfresh Studio and love their stamps and dies!!   Their first challenge is to make a card or scrapbook layout inspired from their chosen color combination.

And here is the card that I chose to make:

I used the Pinkfresh Houseplants die.  I cut it first out of green paper, and then the 2 pinks that I chose.  For the leaves on the left, I used my Copic markers, RV06 and R39 to color over  the green leaves.  (I was trying to make them look like coleus leaves)  For the other leaves I sponged a darker green on them to give them some variation in color.  I cut the vases from the pink papers and glued them in place over the green ones.  I used dimensional adhesive to pop out the leaves on the plants.  The thank you sentiment is from My Sentiments Exactly.  I highly recommend that you check out Pinkfresh Studio  for lots of great stamps and dies!  And check out their blog for lots of inspiration!  “Be Good!”  Debbie

Happy St Patrick’s Day!

Hi everyone! This cute little leprechaun and I have come to say Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I love Mama Elephant dies, and this card uses bits of two of them.  At Christmas I used the Favor Bag Accessory Santa/Elf and thought at the time, it would make a great leprechaun too!  Thankfully, I remembered when it came time to make my St Patrick’s Day cards.  The bow tie and hat are from the Snow/Deer Favor Bag Accessory sets.  I used a shamrock die from Impression Obsession and a sentiment that I had in my stash.  I think he is adorable!!!  Wishing you the luck of the Irish today!  Happy St Patrick’s Day!  “Be Good!”  Debbie
