Coffee hug – Feb. 1, 2021

Coffee, Dull Glossy Paper

Happy Monday and first day of February! We have been experimenting with alcohol inks again. For this one we used a paper heart that we cut out and splattered alcohol ink over, creating this empty space that we stamped the phrase in. Then added the coffee cup with a pop up and the ribbon.

Bib Cards, Dull Glossy Paper, Retirement

Happy Friday! We have a retirement bib card this afternoon. This one is really easy to put together. We stamped the dotted circle first, then punched it out with a 1-3/4” circle punch, then stamped the coffee cup, and colored the cup with copic markers. For the overlay, we stamped and colored the coffee beans across the bottom and stamped the retirement saying above. Then glued the circle and overlay on the bib card and added ribbon. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Coffee, Dull Glossy Paper

Hello! We have another card today. The inspiration for this one came from Pinterest and now I can’t find the card but it had diagonal lines across with tiny hearts at each intersection. When I saw it, I thought of this Solid Heart and how I could adapt it. Still want to work with other variations but like how this one turned out.

Dull Glossy Paper, With Sympathy

Sometimes a sympathy card is needed unexpectedly. This one came together very quickly. We used dull glossy paper again so did allow for time to dry before coloring the flowers but still didn’t take long. The grass under the flower was created with a marker. Hope everyone has a wonderful Thursday!

Wonderful birthday – Jan. 27, 2021

Birthday, Dull Glossy Paper

Almost halfway through the week! Today we have a quick and easy card with the birthday candles. We stamped the birthday phrase first on a 3.75”x5” swatch of dull gloss paper to allow time to dry. Then stamped the blue square on a scrap piece large enough, then cut it out with scissors, and then stamped the candles. Colored the candles after letting it dry for a little. Since we used dull Gloss paper, it needs a little extra time. Then we glued the paper swatches on the card, added pop up dots to square before putting above the birthday phrase. Added ribbon and that’s it!

Grande birthday – Jan. 19, 2021

Birthday, Coffee, Dull Glossy Paper

Good morning! Do you ever get card stock that is just hard for you to work with? This color came in a pack and I’ve struggled with it for months now but I think it came together in this card! Is it working?! 😆
