Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop (SPD)


Today, we're hopping with the Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop!


I had some fun using these SugarPea Designs products:

-Perfect Blend
-Class Act
-Caffeine Addict
-Coffee To Go Cups

Don't you just love the size of the coffee compared to the woman? I know many coffee drinkers feel like this!

I started with a craft panel and created a frame with the line of beans. I cut the cup and sleeve and stamped the sentiment and 'caffeine addict' label.  Next, I stamped and die cut my coffee-drinker. Here's a video of the copic colouring.






Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop (AJVD)


Today, the A Jillian Vance Design team is participating in the Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop. Since I'm currently guest designing for AJVD this summer, I thought I would join in.


When I first saw this stamp set, I laughed out loud. Given the current political agenda in Canada of legalizing marijauna the word 'pothead' brings out the immature me. Such a fun, slightly shocking pun.

I stamped a tone-on-tone background using the various sentiments in Pothead, then stamped this super-cool, graphic coffee pot. I colured the coffee with copics and then cinnamon stickles.

Muse221 - Thanks, Jenni


Here's my card for Jenni's final challenge at Muse. She gave us this inspiration:


But, really, I feel like I should be thanking her - I have so enjoyed having her as a member of the Muse DT over the last year or so and we will miss her inspiration for sure!

I focused on Jenni's:
-square card
-thank you theme
-colours

IB61 - You're the Best


I love blue flowers - they're so unexpected and somehow they seem to just glow!  And while I had my Mondo Hydrangea out for yesterday's card, I made a card for this week's Inspired by All the Little Things:





But, as often happens, I had some trouble making up my mind about which direction to go. I ended up with two other cards as well!


You just know that this one appeals to my CAS, minimal mind. I used a stencil and Distress Inks.



I love this big flower stencil (had it forever and I have no idea who made it - I was thinking it might be Hero Arts, but I can't find it) and I used Distress Inks.

I focused on the flowers and the window.

MCV81 - Merry Christmas


Here's my next card for this month's Muse: ChristmasVisions challenge where Chriss has given us this neighbourly inspiration:


I focused on Chriss':
-colours
-pattern of stamping around the edge of the card
-centred black sentiment

I used my MISTI and placed the stamp in one spot before inking and stamping then turning my panel 3 times. Then I moved the stamp, and repeated with a different colour. Again, and again, until I had used all 4 colours. I added Stickles to the snowflakes for some sparkle.

I used:
