Hi Everyone!

Today, I'm joining in the fun for the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  I used stamps, dies and sequins from the Kat Scrappiness shop to create a fun shaker gift card with tons of dimension. 

1

I started out by die cutting 2 rectangular panels using the Never Ending Rectangle Die Set.  I cut a yellow panel with the 2nd largest rectangle and the kraft panel from the 3rd largest. Using the rectangle die makes getting your panels perfectly straight a cinch.  No more crooked edges!  I die cut the Teacup Stack Craft Die from Poppystamps into the kraft panel as well as out of a piece of Gina K. Turquoise Sea cardstock.

After covering over the back of the die cut window on the kraft panel with acetate, I adhered the die cut teacups to the front of the window with a Zig 2-Way Glue Pen, flipped the panel over and created the shaker area by lining it with foam tape.

2

I created a notecard from white cardstock 4.25x 5.5" and adhered the yellow panel to the front.  I adhered a small piece of kraft cardstock to section off the area where the kraft shaker window would be.  This way the background would be the same color as the front kraft panel.  I filled the area with sequins from the Sparkling Manhattan Mix.

8

I die cut another teacup from Gina K.'s Passionate Pink cardstock along with some adhesive foam and adhered the two together.

After adhering the shaker window to the front of the card, I layered the foam-backed teacups over the shaker teacups.  I really like the shimmer of those coffee colored sequins!

5

I stamped a sentiment from Echo Park's But First Coffee stamp set onto a white piece of cardstock with Versafine Onyx ink.  To add some shine, I covered the black ink with Ranger Clear Embossing Powder and heat embossed it. 

8

I made a quick gift card pocket for the inside of the card.  A perfect way to thank a teacher or bus driver with a little coffee "pick-me-up".  I used Lawn Fawn's Let's Polka In The Meadow paper pack and decorated it with some hearts from Doodlebug.

9

A Scor-Buddy comes in handy for this.  All I did was take the patterned paper and cut it to 2 times the height of the gift card, give or take.  I left about 1/2 inch on either side to make score lines.  

8

I scored the pocket in half and made a snip on either side so I could fold up the pocket and seal the side folds together using Scor Tape.  I used a circle punch to cut a notch in the front.  

8

I added a few wood veneer leaves to the front of my card to go with the fall theme.

"Sugared" Citrus Card

Hi Everyone!

I'm back with a card for the current CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge.

I was in the mood to make a food card.  I first thought about doing candy or cookies for elements in the sketch, but then I  came across an older stamp from Simon Says Stamp called Lemonade.  The refreshing fruit slices made me think of fun summer drinks.

To add some shimmer, I stamped Versamark ink over my fruit slices and heat embossed them with WOW Clear Hologram Sparkle embossing powder.  You could also just brush on some Wink of Stella shimmer pen, but I liked the glossy finish you get from the heat embossing.  It reminds me of those bright, sugary gumdrop  fruit slices you can get at the candy shop.  I'm also entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: A Bit of Sparkle.

Sweet Birthday Greetings

Hello Everyone!  I'm back to participate in this week's PTI Make It Monday Challenge #274.  The challenge was to create a card using die cut silhouettes made from patterned paper.

 I used the sweet little Cake Plate Dies along with some papers from the Nostalgic Notions paper pack to create my silhouettes.  The scalloped strip is from the Monthly Moments Journal Card 2.   Originally, I wanted to use the entire square shape to mat the cake plates, but I felt like they looked better against the white, so I just cut a little grounding strip instead.

 Thanks for joining me--have a great weekend!

Soda Pop Greetings

Hi Everyone! Today, I'm playing along with My Favorite Things Color Challenge #59.  These colors made me think of the Soda Pop Bottle Dies I had from MFT which are so fun to work with.  I love that they even have the little bottle caps you can die cut!

The only color of cardstock I didn't have was In the Buff, so I substituted Whip Cream instead.  I started off by cutting some circles to make a background onto the card panel that would be the shaker top. soda-pop-3

 

I made sure to put a lot of sequins into the shaker to be sure it looked like "bubbles".soda-pop-5

Warm Wishes

Hi Everyone! I'm here with an entry to the Lawnscaping Challenge as well as the 2016 Winter Coffee Lover's Blog Hop. .  Lawn Fawn has the cutest little food and drink stamps and I'm still loving their new plaid paper line.  I used the Perfectly Plaid Winter 6x6 pad to make the little strips.  I was trying to get that "frosty" winter look with the glitter paper and the snowflakes.  I raised the strips and the little coffee and donut up on foam tape to give the card some more dimension. warm wishes use this.JPG Thanks for joining me--have a great day!
