Hi all! It’s hard to believe that Summer is over! It seems like it went really quickly! But now that Fall is fast approaching, it’s time for the Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop. Each of the four seasons is celebrated in coffee, tea, and hot cocoa!I’m thinking Halloween for this one, so here is my card:
This cute vampire would rather drink coffee than anything else for Halloween! The die set is Mama Elephant for the vampire called favor bag accessory Halloween, and the Taylored Expressions joe to go die for the cup. I used kind of shimmery paper that I had for his face and hand, to give him a bit of an eerie look. I had the background paper in my stash and printed out the sentiment on my computer. Please check out the other wonderful cards on the bloghop, and there are great prizes too!! Thanks to all the sponsors and to Amy Tsuruta, who always does a fabulous job as the Co-Hostess! “Be Good!” Debbie
Hi All, This is the last day for the Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop and I made one more card! Woo Hoo!
Of course you know that Mermaids need coffee too:
The mermaid die is from Gina Marie, and I added Martha Stewart iridescent heart glitter to her dress. Her hair is colored gold with Wink of Stella. The coffee cup is from a cute garage sale stamp that I stamped in gold Delicata ink, and cut out. I printed the sentiment from my computer and cut it out with a tag from Mama Elephant Slim Tags Trio. The starfish is from Reverse Confetti, again stamped in gold Delicata ink. The background paper is from Momenta and I crimped it to make it look wavy. The bubbles are from Pretty Pink Posh.
Be sure and look at the other cards in the Bloghop, they are amazing!!! Enjoy the rest of your summer and see you for the Coffee Lovers Bloghop in the fall! “Be Good!” Debbie
Hi all! My husband and I have these really really cute Great-grandsons who love Pokémon! So G (what he wants to be called) was 4 on Friday. I wanted to make him a Pokémon birthday card, and the only character I know is Pikachu. (I need to better educate myself I think to keep up with these kids) I have the Favor Bag Accessory – Bunny from Mama Elephant, so I thought I could adapt it to be Pikachu.
I just cut pieces to make the black on the ears and made them a little more pointy, and hand cut the tail. The happy sentiment is from Memory Box. The inside sentiment I did on my computer and reads, Happy Birthday to Pika-you! I know he will love it! Happy Birthday G! “Be Good!” Debbie
It’s time to celebrate Spring! Last week at this time, we had snow on the ground, but yesterday, (Hooray!) it was 75 degrees! It is also time for the Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop. There are lots of fun cards in the Bloghop to celebrate warm weather and sunshine, coffee, tea, and cocoa. For my card today, I say “Cheers to Spring!”
This fun little bunny is raising her coffee cup in a toast to Spring! She is made from the Favor Bag Accessory – Bunny die from Mama Elephant. The coffee cup is from Taylored Expressions, from a set called joe to-go. The paper I used is from Doodlebug, spring things and cream & sugar. I created the sentiment on my computer and used the My Favorite Things Fishtail Flag Frames for the banner. The little embellies are from Doodlebug also. Happy Spring everyone, and be sure to check out the other wonderful cards in this fun Bloghop! “Be Good!” Debbie
Hi, I am here today with my second and final card for the Winter/Holiday Coffee Lovers Bloghop. I wanted to do a card with coffee and cookies for Santa.
The paper I used is from Doodlebug, the Sugarplums collection. The cup and sentiments are from My Favorite Things (Hug in a Mug for the Stamps and Hot Cocoa cups for the die.) The cookies are an old Quikkutz die, and the plate is from My Favorite Things also. (Zig Zag oval) The little tag is from the Mama Elephant Mini Messages set. The candy cane is a little chenille pipe cleaner I had in my stash. Thanks for checking in with me today, my Christmas Card preview will continue on Sunday. Wishing you all the blessings of Christmas! “Be Good!” Debbie
Here is another quick and simple card that is soo cute! The stamp is from Mama Elephant and is called Pandamonium. I used Memento ink, black and ladybug to stamp the bear and hearts. The background paper is from Bo Bunny, and I used Mama Elephant’s Femme Frames to cut out the rectangle and background paper. I love panda bears, and love this sentiment for Valentine’s Day or any day. Hope you have a good day! “Be Good!” Debbie
