Christmas Coffee With Honey Bee Stamps Mugs & Kisses

Hello! I have a card to share today that I created for the Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge #6. The theme is coffee (surprising) and masculine. A little challenging for me. I hope this works for that.

Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles

For the background I used some Tim Holtz Metallic Kraft-Stock and an embossing folder.

The white rectangle is die cut.

The mugs and all that is with them are also die cut. This mug set is a fun one and has two mugs with handles on opposite sides. It has a spoon, candy cane, marshmellows, whip cream and a few other dies.

Entered over at the Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge #6.

Supplies:

  • Honey Bee Stamps Mugs & Kisses
  • Unknown holly embossing folder
  • Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles die set
  • Tim Holtz Metallic Kraft-Stock paper

Easter Cards 2022

Here are the Easter cards I made this year with a combination of different companies dies.

For this I did ink smooshing, die cutting and embossing with a folder. The bunny is die cut from felt. The bunny has spots because the glue was still wet.

Supplies: Tim Holtz Quilted 3D embossing folder, Distress ink, Lawn Fawn Build-A-Basket: Easter, Tim Holtz Movers & Shapers Mini Bunny & Bow die, Hero Arts Celebrate Everyday stamp set.

Ink smooshed background. Die cutting.

Supplies: Spellbinders Sun & Clouds, Distress ink, Hero Arts Celebrate Everyday stamp set, Tim Holtz Simple Plaid die, Tim Holtz Papercut Chicks

Pretty much all die cutting from some interesting papers in my pile and water coloring the grass patch. And then there is the golden egg done with Foundry Wax.
Supplies: Tim Holtz Simple Plaid die, Tim Holtz Papercut Chicks, Tim Holtz Foundry Wax

Stamping, coloring with Copics and die cutting. That bunny is by Hero Arts and is so darn sweet.

Supplies: Hero Arts Garden Bunny stamp, rectangle dies, Copic pens

Lawn Fawn

This just might be my favorite of them all. The background was a piece of paper embossed when I got it. I sprayed it I think or maybe ink blended. The rest is die cutting. The bunny is die cut from felt.

Supplies: Lawn Fawn Build-A-Basket: Easter, Tim Holtz Movers & Shapers Mini Bunny & Bow die, Tim Holtz Simple Plaid die, Hero Arts Celebrate Everyday stamp set.

Elizabeth Craft Designs Gnomes Christmas Card

Here is a little Christmas card for you. I had fun with this super cute die and tried die cutting felt to make the Santa gnome.

So as you can see most of the gnome is die cut from felt and it worked really well. It is not really a Santa specific die but I wanted to make it a Santa. It is a great die set with male and female gnome pieces.

I used the sketch from Build Your Stash Holiday Cardmakers March sketch and entered it in the Facebook challenge.

Supplies:

  • Elizabeth Craft Designs Gnomes die set
  • Can’t remember where the sentiment came from…

Hero Arts Coffee Christmas

Today I have a interesting themed card for the Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge for April. The challenge is coffee, Christmas and rainbow. Kind of a challenge for a Christmas card for me anyway.

Here is what I came up with using the Hero Arts August 2018 My Monthly Hero card kit. It is a good one, full of coffee stuff!

Ciao Bella Coffee Stains

For the background I ink blended using Distress Oxide ink. I then used a coffee stains stencil over that also using Distress Oxide ink.

The coffee cups were cut out using the dies from the Hero Arts MMH set and I inked around the edges using you guessed it Distress Oxide ink. Merry was die cut using a Momenta die set and Christmas was die cut using a MFT die.

Supplies:

  • Ciao Bella Coffee Stains stencil
  • Momenta Alphabet dies
  • Distress Oxide ink
  • MFT Merry Christmas die
  • Hero Arts August 2018 My Monthly Hero

 

Build Your Stash Christmas Card

Here is one more card I created for the Build Your Stash group in Facebook. The picture is maybe a little darker colors than it is in person.

So this is another fairly simple card. Most of it is from a paper pad. I colored in the acorns to add a little detail. The washi tape across the card is colored with Copics. I really like it and I got it at Daiso so it was inexpensive. The gold bling is Pink Fresh Metallic Pearls and I really like them. There are several different sizes in the pack and I have gold and silver.

Supplies:

  • Paper Pad
  • Pink Fresh Metallic Pearls – gold
  • Washi tape

I thought of this card long ago. I made the background almost long ago. Ha.  I finally just spent a small amount of time to finish it.

The sentiment is die cut out of some shimmery purple paper.

Today I have a card I created for the Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge that is a new challenge that started up this month. And.. I didn’t pay enough attention to the close date on the challenge so this will not be entered. Oops. I am looking forward to playing along in the future.

Memory Box Large Snowflakes

The background is one that I created many months ago. For the purple I used a Distress ink pad straight to paper. For the snowflakes I used some translucent embossing paste with a stencil and then sprinkled on some Pixie Sparkles. The background is actually more of a medium purple not so dark like the photo.

The cup is die cut and ink blended with purple and blue Distress Oxide inks.

The sentiment is die cut and inked up with the same blue I used on the cup.

Supplies:

  • Distress Ink
  • Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Sparkles – Beyond Blue
