Coffee

Hello again! What?  Two posts in a row..can it really be?? Yep, this is me trying to be more creative this year (my one word for the year if you must know) and trying to do a lot more stuff in my craft room than I did last year, and that is including layouts as well as cards.

My big crafty resolution for this year, is to start doing all those online classes that I have paid for and not attempted yet….I think I have 5 or 6 just from Scrapbook & Cards Today (who by the way launched their 365 Class for 2018!  Here are the deets! )  This double-page, sketch-based class features exclusive PageMaps sketches, trendy techniques (all spelled out in photos), a monthly bonus card, cutting files, complete instructions and so much more.  All taught by some of the biggest names in the biz…really fun and new this year, there is a monthly sponsored prize for doing the challenge! How fun is that????

Anyway, here are a couple of cards that I made for a swap on Splitcoast Stampers.  The theme was Caffeine.

I finally broke open my Stampin Up Coffee Suite Designer papers and used the SU The Perfect Blend stamp set as well as the Kraftin Kimmie – One Cup at a Time.  The sentiments are from Stampin up and Paper Smooches.  I added in some small embellising on the first one, with some Nuvo drops.  Since I was mailing these out, I wanted to keep them as flat and simple as possible.

So for this card, I found some Stampin Up paper I received in a swap and used that for my DP.  I colored the image with my copics and also a bit of wink of stella in white and blue to add a bit of shine. The flowers and blig were from a swap and the resin flowers are just from my stash.

Scrappy Fun

Happy weekend all!  It’s a long weekend here in Canada, but unfortunately, I have to work so no camping for me. BOO!  I have been hard at work clearing off my scrap space as I am preparing to make a schwack of cards for Ronald McDonald House in BC as part of a group in Splitcoaststampers.  Anyway..I’ve had this pile of scraps and bits and bobs on my desk FOREVER because I didn’t want to throw them out until I tried to use them up a bit.

I wanted to share with you a few of the card I made with the scraps & die cuts and some inspiration from Pinterest.

I killed a kit!

When I was at crop & create a couple of weeks ago, I got a kit when I attended Vicki Boutin’s cluster class.  It was just a small kit, made up mostly of the Moonstruck collection from Pink Paislee.  I finally put that puppy to bed.

Besides the 3 layouts ( 1 Single & 1 double from the class) I managed to get in another single layout and 4 cards.  I probably could have stretched another one or two cards as I have a few die cuts and some of the rub-ons left and one 3.5 x 5 strip of paper! LOL However, I called it a day and figured I got the just of it. 🙂

I will be sharing the projects over the next week, so here is a card that I made, which I put together for the My Favorite Things sketch challenge this week.

MFT Sketch #327 #mftstamps

I did add some extra sequins for my card just to bring in some more of that gold from the rub on at the top. The alphas came with the kit as well and they are American Crafts.

I hope you like it!

SCS- A Crazy Christmas

So I am part of a swap in Splitcoast Stampers called the Crazy Christmas Swap.  We basically send and receive the bare bones to make a Christmas card – the image/sentiment and 2 sheets of DP.  The rest is up to us.

Mine came from Kelly. She sent a Cat’s Pajamas sentiment and some Papertrey Ink designer paper.  I used this week’s sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches to set up the card.  I added in just some card stock, a bit of cord and a few sequins.  I colored the image with my Copics and then went over the igloo and the bear with my Wink of Stella.

Here’s the TMS sketch

And now my card:

Eggspecially for you

Hey there!

I’ve got a fun card today for the Mojo Monday challenge.  Here is the sketch they put up for this week!

This is the card that I made!

dav

I don’t make a lot of Easter cards but I needed this one for a swap on Splitcoast Stampers that I am in.  The chick paper and the glittery pink is from my stash, but the fun bunny paper is from Echo Park’s Spring 6×6 pack!  (I am making a conscious effort to crack open the 50+ 6×6 packs that I have and actually use them!  The sentiment is from craft lounge and the fun chick is a sticker I picked up in the $$ store as are the enamel dots. The ink is from Colorbox.  I really love this card and I hope you do too!
