Saturday Coffee Cafe - A Good Idea

Saturday, February 17, 2018

 Happy Saturday!  The Café is open on the Coffee Lovers Cardmakers blog and I’m really glad you stopped by!

A good idea.  That’s how my weekend started.  My daughter is co-planning a baby shower and had a good idea for the perfect baby shower gift she wanted to create.  Since she’s away at college and was only coming home this weekend, she did some things from school, I did some things here and yesterday we ran all over to get the things we still needed for this good idea! (see below)

For my card, I started by creating a background with distress oxide inks.  I cut kraft cardstock with Mama Elephant’s Tri Window Cover die.  The fabulous coffee cup images are from Honey Bee Stamps Coffee Break.  I used Verve Stamps ‘coffee’ word die and a sentiment from SugarPea Designs Caffeine Addict to finish.

Thankfully, I was (and still am) fully fueled on caffeine, because coffee IS always a good idea when you gotta get ‘er done.  The café would not have been open today, nor the perfect baby shower gift would have come together, otherwise!!

 Lots of pink tissue wrapping and love!


Paper Sweeties February Blast From The Past - Day 3

Friday, February 16, 2018

Today's the last day of projects for Paper Sweeties February Blast From The Past.  Hope you have enjoyed seeing over the last few days all the fun creations the Design Team has shared.  
When I was little, I wanted to be an artist.  One Christmas, all I asked for was art-related things: pastels, sketch pad, watercolor paints, markers, etc.  I would spend hours sketching pictures (they were nothing to write home about) and coloring them in.  So, I may not have grown up to be a real artist, but I'm so happy that my love of creating was found in stamping and papercrafting!


For my card, I thought I'd make a card that reminds me I'm a 'type' of artist ;)  This fun artsy set and coordinating Sweet Cuts, You Add Color To My Life, from Paper Sweeties has so many great images to make colorful projects with!  I layered the colorful paint brushes and pallet onto the For You tag cut from black cardstock which I think make the colors pop.  Don't you just love those paint splats?!  They make great ink splots, too!

Hop on over to the rest of the Design Team blogs today.  You'll be in for a real treat!!
