Coffee Lovers Bloghop

Hello Friends!

You are in for a treat today!

The Coffee Lovers Bloghop which was dreamt up
by our fabulous hostess's Amy and Chaitali is
sure to inspire!  So grab a cup of your favorite
coffee and hop along!

Ok....I have a confession....I am not a coffee drinker.  There
I said it!  I do however, love people that love
I think that counts.  I also love coffee/tea themed stamps.
My favorite coffee shop drink is a vanilla chai tea latte.

The card I am sharing was super fun to make
using the October Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp
and some Lawn Fawn Lawn Cuts.

To create my funky coffee cup I stamped my image
three times on designer paper included in the kit.
I paper pieced it all together and tucked in
some whip cream...or could be foam, 
whatever your preference :)
Can you tell what I used to create my whip cream creation?
It's actually the top part of a cloud
 from a Lawn Fawn Lawn cut.  How fun is that?  
The sun is also a die from the same set.  
To finish my card off I stamped on a smiley face,
 some steam, and the sentiment topped with a couple of pearls.

For details of all the products I used,
see my "icandy" list below.

Did you happen to see all the amazing
sponsors for this blog?  They will be offering up
some fantastic prizes!

Amy and Chaitali even have "Flash Sponsors".
I am told prizes from these companies
 will be given away every 3 hours!

inspiration for my card design today.
The challenge is to show how you are inspired
 by this amazing card by

Whew, I think that's it for me today!
I will be hopping on and off all
day today to soak up inspiration
from all the fabulous designers and leaving
them a little comment love. :)

I Quite Like You

Hello Friends,

I'm sharing a card today that I created using some 
fun stamps  and a die from WPlus9.
I "quite" fell in love with the sentiments from the 
"Quite Like You" set :) and combined with the "Ink Splat" Set 
and a few sparkly sequins this card emerged.  I used the negative from the Label Layers 1 Die and adhered 
it to some white cardstock after I finished stamping.  
That way some of the paint splats peeked out beneath the DP.
That's it for me today...I'm off for a run in the sunshine.
Thanks for stopping by!

No Peeking!

Hi Friends!

It has been one cold, gloomy and rainy past few days.
I mean one day it was 80 degrees and sunny...
and the next 45 and rainy!  Really?
This body just can't adapt that fast.
I will take some Indian Summer....please!

So with the cold, I thought I would cheer myself
up with some fun Christmas tags.
Lately I'm loving any dies with faux stitching
and this Pretty Pink Posh tag die is bigger than most and one of my faves.

Speaking of favorites, How about this larger "To and From"
sentiment from Paper Smooches that I used on the back of my tag?
I'm crazy for the font and the words are not 
swallowed up on a large tag.

A sparkly gem and cord plus a fun paper clip and
ticket finish it off.  I created a set of six of these 
in no time flat.

Thanks for stopping by and
enjoy your weekend!
