I like Big cups....


Today's card is a little mixed media, but I love the results!
The base of the card is Oatmeal Cookie Cardstock.  I then cut a layer of Cocoa Powder Cardstock.  On this piece, I used the Rings Stack Stencil and Journey Modeling Paste to create the background.  When it was fully dry (I usually let pieces dry over night), I took Rich Sorbet PanPastels and colored the modeling paste.  I tied a Oatmeal Cookie Satin Ribbon bow around the piece and adhered it to the card base.
Next, I die cut a Journey Circle from Buttercream Cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Hey Sugar set with Cocoa Powder Ink.
To finish the card, I added a few Spring Accent Dots.  Enjoy!

Love you a Latte


I don't know about you but, coffee is good anytime of the year.  I want to share a card with you today that is for someone I love who loves coffee too.
The base of the card is Hazelnut Blend Cardstock, a layer of Buttercream Cardstock that I distressed with Hazelnut Blend ink and a layer of Autumn Prints Pattern Paper.  I tied an Oatmeal Cookie Satin Ribbon around the layers and tied a knot,  I then added the Heart Button to the top using Journey Natural Twine.
I then die cut the small circles with Journey Circle from Buttercream Cardstock and distressed them using Rich Sorbet PanPastels.
I stamped the latte and the sentiment from the Hey Sugar stamp set using Hazelnut Blend Ink.  I adhered the circles to the card using foam squares.
I then die cut the leaf from Snapshot Frames die set.  One from Candy Apple cardstock and the other from Summer Days cardstock.  I adhered them to the card with glue.
I finished the card by adding some Spring Accents Dots.  Enjoy!

Can You Case It? #139

A rainbow of colors is the theme today at the Can You Case It? Challenge Blog.
http://canyoucaseit.com/?p=3413
Here is the card I created using PanPastels.
I started the card by cutting a piece of Whip Cream Cardstock at 5 3/8 X 4 1/8.  I then took my different PanPastels from Rich Sorbet and Party Pop collections to create the rainbow across the Whip Cream Cardstock piece.
I then adhered this piece to the card base made from River Stone Cardstock.  I then die cut the largest heart from the Decorative Hearts die set from River Stone cardstock. I adhered the card to the card base with glue and wrapped and tied the side of the heart with Whip Cream Thread.
I finished the card by stamping the sentiment from Beautiful Wings with River Stone ink on Whip Cream Cardstock.  I adhered this piece to the card using foam squares.  I then added a few rhinestones.  Enjoy!

Can You Case It? #138

Today is another challenge at Can You Case It?  A fun challenge!  


Here is the card I created:
I love the Slice of Life collection and to make a shaker card, I was happy.
The base of the card is Pineapple Smoothie Cardstock.  I then took a piece of Whip Cream Cardstock and Slice of Life Pattern Paper and made the top layers.  I placed these on top of the card, and using the Journey Circles, I die cut all three layers.
I then made the shaker card part by making a sandwich of acetate, foam squares with the Slice-fetti, acetate, Whip Cream Cardstock and Slice of Life Pattern Paper.
I then added a piece of Whip Cream Cardstock to the back and stamped the sentiment from the Make Lemonade set with Watermelon Fusion ink.
On the front of the card, I stamped the sentiment from Make Lemonade with Watermelon Fusion ink on Whip Cream Cardstock and added it to the card with foam squares.
To finish the card, I tied a bow around the whole card with Lemon Grass Thread.  Enjoy!

Can You Case It? #137

It's Sunday again and you know what that means....
A new Can You Case It? Challenge!  Today we have a color challenge.
Here is the card I created:
The base of the card is a Sweet Pear Cardstock, with a layer of Watermelon Fusion Cardstock.  I then took a piece of Whip Cream Cardstock and stamped the Beautiful Wings image onto the cardstock randomly with River Stone ink.  I then stamped another butterfly on a scrap piece of Whip Cream Cardstock.
Using my Journey Splash pencils, I colored the butterflies.  Bubble Gum for the background butterflies and Sweet Pear and Watermelon Fusion on the main butterfly.  I then took the Fusion Blender Pen, filled with water, and blended the colors a little bit.
I added a River Stone Satin Ribbon bow around the card, and tied the heart button from Journey Color Buttons II with Whip Cream Thread and tied in a bow.
To finish the card, I added some Journey Glaze to the main butterfly and dusted it with Journey Sparkle Dust.  Enjoy!
I hope you will join us this week with the challenge.  Also remember to follow us on Facebook to see upcoming challenges as well.

Can You Case It #136

Good Morning Card makers!  I hope today you are enjoying your Labor Day Weekend.  We have a new challenge over at Can You Case It?.  Today it is a sketch challenge.
http://canyoucaseit.com/?p=3406
Here is the card I created.

My card is actually a tunnel card.  To make the base of the card, use a 8 1/2 X 11 piece of Pool Play  Cardstock and cut it in half, like you normally would do to make a card.  Fold them both in half, but the inside piece gets folded back on both sides.  I also die cut a Journey Circle in the middle of the piece.
I then attached the two pieces together on the sides.  When folded again, it makes a regular card size. Next, I stamped the balloon from the Blown up set on Whip Cream Cardstock with Pineapple Smoothie ink.  With the same set, I stamped the black dots on top with Black Licorice ink.  I die cut this piece out with the Blown Up die (Current Bloom Benefit) and cut another one from Whip Cream Cardstock.
I then made a sandwich with both and a piece of Whip Cream Thread.  I adhered the top to the inside of the card.
On the front of the card, I created a layer of Black Licorice Cardstock, Cool Pool Cardstock and Celebrate You Pattern Paper.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate You ATS with Pineapple Smoothie ink background and Black Licorice ink for the words.  I then detail cut this piece out and adhered it to the card using foam squares.
To finish the card, I added some Journey Sequins-Pink World to the card.  Enjoy!

Faith Friday 9/2/16

Faith Friday today and I have a special verse to share today.
I love Proverbs 3:5-6 and today's card is this verse.
The base of the card is Cranberry Bliss Cardstock with a layer of Black Licorice Cardstock.  I then cut a layer of Bubble Gum Cardstock and stamped the Lots of Love ATS with Cranberry Bliss ink.  I folded the corner up and attached it to the card.
I then added a layer of Cranberry Bliss cardstock.  I then stamped the "Trust in the Lord" stamp from the Trust the Lord set with Cranberry Bliss ink on Whip Cream cardstock.  I added this piece to the card.
Next, I wrapped a piece of Bubble Gum Satin Ribbon around the Cranberry Bliss cardstock piece and tied a knot.  I then added a piece of Black Licorice Twine around the knot and tied a Heart button from Journey Color Buttons II set.
To finish the card I took two hearts from the Amazing Accents, added them to my card and colored them with Cranberry Bliss Silk.  I also added some Journey Glaze to the heart.  I then added some Journey Sparkle Dust to the two red hearts and the main heart.  Enjoy!
