Hello everyone!!  I’m so excited to be apart of this fun Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop again!!

I love this hop because I love Mugs!!  Coffee, Tea, Hot Chocolate Lovers all need great mugs to enjoy their morning, afternoon and evening hot beverage.

I’m here today representing Top Dog Dies, who is a Super Sponsor.  They recently released a Mini Coffee Die Set that is to die for.

Lets take a look at my card that I created for this hop:

Awesome Coffee

For those of you who follow me know that I have this new found love of shaker cards.  I couldn’t help myself to create one for this hop!!

Here is how I created this card:

1. I cut my Neenah Desert Storm cardstock to an A2 size card (4.25 x 5.50).

2 I stamped My Favorite Things BG Pinstripe Background using Simon Says Stamp Khaki Stamp pad unto the card base.

3. I cut my card panel out of  Neenah Solar White cardstock to a size smaller then the card base.

4. I centered the largest Simon Says Stamp Circle Stitch Die in the middle of the white card panel and die cut it out.

5. I used my We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool to create my shaker pocket.

(To see how I did that check out this post.)

6.I added Pretty Pink Posh 4mm Metallic Bronze to the shaker pocket and then I used the Fuse Tool to seal it close.

7. I attached the shaker pocket to the back of the card panel with tape.

8. I added foam adhesive to the card panel to pop it off of the card base.

9. I die cut my coffee cup, lid, wrapper and heart.

10. I put the coffee cup together and adhered it to the front of the shaker circle.

11. I stamped a sentiment using Lil inker designs Seriously Awesome Stamp on the front of my card panel.

13. I added some of the same sequin to the front of the card.

That’s my card!!  So what do you think? I would love to here from you!

CS Take It Make It: Take a Technique Challenge

Hello everyone!! I’m here with CS Take It Make It: Take a Technique Challenge for our June.

Our theme is Take a Technique!

This months challenge is going to be super fun!!  Its all about texture!

This means using texture paste or embossing paste on your project or using a technique such as embossing, either embossing powder or embossing folders. Anything that gives your project a “touchy-feely” style!!

Wait, don’t forget the stamping, that with your texture should be fun!!

Take a look at my card:

Smile (CSTIMI)

Take a look at that textured background!!  I love it.

Here is how I created this card:

1. I taped my card base down to my work surface to keep it from moving.

2. I taped the Simon Says Stamp Grid Stencil on top of my card base.

3. I spread Wendy Vecchi White Embossing Paste on top of the Grid Stencil from the top left corner to the bottom right corner.

4.  While the paste was still wet, I sprinkled some Tim Holtz Distress Glitter Clear Rock Candy on top of the paste for a glittery look.


5. I set the card base down to dry.

6. I die cut Stampin’ Up! Butterflies Thinlits Dies out of a watercolor piece that I created awhile back.

Watercolor scrap

I love keeping scraps, you never know when you will need them.

7. I attach the butterfly with Glossy Accents.

8. I stamped the sentiment using Simon Says Clear Stamps Happy and Smile to the bottom right side of his card.

Nice and easy!!

Now its your turn to play along with us.

We have a great prize pack for you.

CASology 149 – Vintage

Hello everyone!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!! We are back with another Cue Card for you!!

How did you like last week’s cue card?  I had so much fun coloring that image!!

Week 149 - Vintage

Now take a look at my card:


I have to say this Tim Holtz stamp is my favorite!  Look at all of that detail in the face.

This card was super easy to create.

I used my Misti to stamp the face image from Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Daydream Stamp Set using Distress Ink Walnut Stain.

I used Tim Holtz Perspective Stamp Set to stamp my sentiment in the bottom left corner of the card.

I used a mini blending tool and add Walnut Stain to the edges of the card front.

I think this card is totally vintage!! What do you think? Let me know below!!

I hope you join us this week!

a2z Scrapbooking June 2015 Challenge

Second post for the day

If your looking for So Suzy Stamps New Release, click here

Hello everyone!!  I’m here with a2z Scrapbooking today with our June Challenge!!!

Our new challenge is sure to please you this month!!  Our challenge this month is New Beginning!!  Use any Hero Arts product to create anything that fits your fancy.  This will be fun and interesting.  The possibilities are endless.

Check out the card I created for this challenge:

So, I’m taking the new Online Card Class Mask-erade and Shari Carroll taught us how to create a background using liquid masking.  I thought it was such a cute idea that I wanted to try it myself.

Here is how I created this card:

1. I cut my watercolor paper panel down to 3-3/4 x 5-1/2.

2. I stamped the Hero Arts Three Artistic Butterflies with Ranger Archival Jet Black Ink.

3. I covered each butterfly with Incredible White Mask and let it dry.

4. Then I stamped Tim Holtz Mesh & Linen with Hero Arts Soft Granite Ink right on top of the butterflies.

5. Then I used Hero Arts Bubble Confetti Stencil and Distress Inks Spiced Marmalade, Peacock Feathers and Mustard Seed and added different ink spots to my card panel.

6. I let my card panel dry and then I used my fingers to remove the dried liquid mask.  In the process of removing the mask, my paper tore.


7. To fix that, I used a little bit of glue to attach the ripped piece back.

8. I attached my card panel to the front of Simon Says Stamp Audrey Blue cardstock.

9.  I attached the card panel to the card base with tape.

10. I die cut Hero Arts Stamp and Cut Congrats out of black cardstock 3 times.

11. I stacked the die cuts on top of each other and adhered it to the card front.

12. I stamped another sentiment from that same stamp set underneath the die cut.

13. I added Clear Wink of Stella to the die cut for added interest.

I had a lot fun creating this card.  So what do you think?  Let me know below.

Amazing isn’t it!! I hope you love what you see and that it inspires you to join us this month. You have the entire month to create a new project and enter it into our challenge. By entering you will have a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate to the a2z Scrapbooking Store. Winner will be announced on the 7th of May.  Good Luck!
