Summer Lover's Coffee Blog Hop Card #10--Side Kick


I saw my google eyes today and this is what they inspired! I definitely consider my daily frappuccino as my favorite side kick!  LOL 



Summer Lover's Coffee Blog Hop Card #9--Snorkeling Kitty


I've just loving not having the summer off, so I can make lots of coffee-themed cards!  Today I was hard at "work" again, and I just LOVE how this card turned out.  I can't believe that I am just barely playing with my Newton Nook's Designs stamps. This kitty is from Newton's Summer Vacation. I did some masking since I needed my Newton to be snorkeling in a cup of coffee vs. his fish bowl. I stamped the coffee cup (Paper Smooches) and did some paper piecing. The paper is from Echo Park's Summer Bliss, and I used a preprinted sentiment from the stack. I then stamped the coffee sentiment (YNS--Coffee...Right Now) over sunshine!  I colored Newton with my Prismacolor pencils.









Summer Lover's Coffee Blog Hop Card #8-Low Battery


I think this card sums up how all coffee-lovers feel when their batteries are low!
This card features one of the darling kitties from Your Next Stamp's Coffee...Right Meow set.
This time I colored the kitty with my new Prismacolor pencils.
The sentiment is from Hero Arts. 
Now off to play with more of my coffee-themed stamps!

Summer Lover's Coffee Blog Hop Card #7-Need to Venti


This coffee-themed card features Kraftin' Kimmie's Coffee & Friends. Every time I use this set, I think of my sister and wish we didn't live so far apart and could partake in a cup of coffee.

Summer Lover's Coffee Blog Hop Card #6--Perfect Blend


I'm back with another coffee-themed card. My hubby and I usually make our own frappuccinos, so I made a card showing what our kitchen counter looks like most mornings. I used Lawn Fawn's So Smooth stamp set, The Greeting Farm's Perk Up set, and K. Andrew Designs' Coffee & Tea for You & Me sentiment set. With the summer heating up, a cool frappuccino is just what is needed!

Summer Lover's Coffee Blog Hop Card #5 (Wake Up and Enjoy Today)



Good morning!  I think this card says it all!  The kitty is from Your Next Stamp--Coffee Right Meow!  I am loving this stamp set right now.   (I've used it 3 times so far for this blog hop!).  The sentiment is from The Greeting Farm's Perk Up stamp set.  Thanks for stopping by!

Yikes, I just realized that I need to do some masking!  That cup needs a happy face!  I'll try to fix that up after getting some yard work done!  :)

Summer Lover's Coffee Blog Hop Card #4


Here's my 4th card for the Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop. This card features one of my favorite sets because it has both cats and coffee!  It's Your Next Stamp's Coffee Right Meow!  I used the sketch from YNS #41 Challenge as a sort of "movie" of what happens to us coffee addicted crafters!  (Seriously isn't that what happens to us!) I also used the colors from the YNS #41 challenge. 




Summer Lover's Coffee Blog Hop Card #3


I'm back with my third coffee card for the Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop
For this card, I used Your Next Stamp's Thanks a Latte set and the colors from YNS Color Challenge #41. I stamped the sentiment in different colors. Then I stamped and fussy cut the cup and cosy. I stamped the fun face and adhered. I added some enamel dots to pull it all together!






Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop Card #2


Here's my second card for the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. This card sports a fun caramel frappuccino from The Greeting Farms's Perk Up set. The embossing folder is Tim Holtz's On the Go by Sizzix. I used distress ink to add a bit of color to the embossed background. I colored the frappe with Spectrum Noir markers and topped it off with Liquid Pearls for the whipped cream.  Doesn't it look yummy!



Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop Card #1


I am so excited that it's time for another Coffee Lovers Bloghop!  
Here's my first card that showcases Lawn Fawn's Loads of Fun and the little cup is from Sweet Stamp Shop's Sticky Situation. I water colored the t-shirt to give it a tie-dye look. As I haven't had coffee for the last three days (thanks to bad potato salad), I am definitely feeling this sentiment!

CIC364--Pickled Potpourri


Welcome to this week's Cupcake Inspirations Challenge. Since Cupcake Inspirations will be taking a summer break, this challenge will run until July 2nd. We have a wonderful sponsor, Pickled Potpourri, who is generously provided a $7 gift certificate to one lucky winner. 





For my card, I was unable to use one of the fabulous images from Pickled Potpourri because my OS system has been upgraded, and I am not able to print because my printer is not supported by the new OS system. Ugh!  Be sure to check out my fellow sweeties' projects who fortunately did not have printer issues and showcase some fabulous Pickled Potpourri images!  

                                                        Amy
                                                     Deborah
                                                       Kathy
                                                        Naki
                                                       Tanja


I decided to make a shaker card and not use any stamped images as I really wanted to use a sponsored one!  I used a die cut from Your Next Stamp and some sequins and confetti from my stash. The banner die is from Elle Avery and the sentiment is from Paper Smooches.

Smooth Birthday





Here's another birthday card. This one is for my sister. I think this rounds up my June birthdays!  For this card, I used a new stamp set from Lawn Fawn--So Smooth. I am so loving this set!  



5th Birthday


I'm back with another birthday card for another granddaughter. This one is for my little Molly, who is turning 5 this year. I used Paper Smooches' Surf Stamp; Turf stamps and Paper Smooches' Digits and Number Dies. I decided to play in AAA Cards challenge, so I watercolored my background.
