Second Post for Today
If your looking for Week Two of the 30 Day Coloring Challenge, click here

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

This week’s cue card:

week-224-embrace

Take a look at my card:

hugs-its-your-birthday-cas

For this week’s cue card, I went with Lawn Fawn Scripty Hugs die and fun foam!! I used a scrap piece of watercolor paper and die cut the word hugs once. Then I die cut a piece of white fun foam three times.  I adhered them together and adhered them to the card front.  I used Altenew Celebrate stamp set to stamp the sentiment in black.

I rounded one corner of the card to finish it off.

Are you inspired to play along?  Please let me know below!

For more inspiration, check out my fellow Design Team members blog for more awesome work.

Holiday Gift Coaster Tiles

handmade-holidays-banner

Hello everyone!!  I’m super excited about participating in the 6th Annual Handmade Blog Hop!! This is my first year participating and I have to say I had so much fun creating my handmade gift.

The Handmade Holiday Blog Hop goal is to inspire you to create something from the heart this holiday season for your loved ones.  All of the participates have chosen projects that are easy to do with products that you use everyday or new products that you’ve never thought of using before.

The blog hop spans over three days, November 8th, 9th and 10th!!  Today is day 2 and its all about Holiday Decor Ideas!!

I created a set of coasters for my brother and his soon to be wife. They are about to get married and I wanted to give them a gift from my heart.

Take a look at my coasters:

kt-purple-coaster-final

I love how these coasters turned out!!  The purple and white look so good together.

Let me show you how I created these coasters:

Gather all of the supplies needed for this project.

kt-coaster-supplies

Select the two colors you want to mix in order to create a unique color. For this project DecoArt Americana Decor Chalky Finish for Glass Treasure and Romance were used.

Make sure you use the right ratio to achieve the color you want. For this purple color, mix 3 part Treasure and 1 part Romance.

kt-coaster-paint-mixing

Paint each of the tiles with long even strokes. One coat at a time covering the entire tile.

kt-painting-the-coaster

Give each tile a total of 3 coats each for a super smooth finish.

kt-completed-painted

Once the paint dries, its time to add the letter you want on the coasters.  Simple place the stencil on top of the title and use Colorbox Frost White Pigment Ink with a sponge dauber.

kt-stenciled-coasters-final

Once the pigment ink dries, it takes awhile, you can add Americana Decor Light Satin Varnish as a top coat to seal the top of the coaster.

To finish the coasters off, cut a couple of pieces of cork and adhere them to the bottom of the coaster in the four corners. This will prevent the coaster form sliding on different surfaces.

kt-adding-cork

Here’s a close-up:

kt-coaster-close-up

Wrap the coasters with some ribbon and tie a bow.  Place these coasters in a box and this handmade gift is ready to go.

Coasters in action:

kt-glass-of-water-on-coaster

The clean up was super easy.  Water washes the paint off of the palette and out of the brushes.

If your looking for the Your Next Stamp Winter Fun post, click here

Hello everyone!!  I’m super excited to be here today with the Where Creativity Meets C9 Blog Challenge Design Team!!  This is our third challenge and we couldn’t wait to share our love for Concord and 9th!!

Exciting right!!  I think so!!

So without further-a-do, take a look at our challenge theme:

sparkle-and-shine-c9

Take a look at my card:

grateful-wcmc9

For this challenge, shape cards were in order.  I love making cards that are odd shaped from time to time. For the sparkle and shine I foiled the sentiment and adhered it to the card front.  Super doper easy!!

These cards could be turned into tags as well.  Just punch a hole and write on the inside of the tag.

What do you think?  Please let know below.

I can’t wait to see how you interpret our challenge theme this month.
