Hug in a Mug!


Coffee Loving Cardmakers is currently hosting the 2020 Fall / Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! For my second entry into this hop, I chose the adorable stamp from (My Creative Time) called Cute Mugs – MCT326. 

To create this card, I first used my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Bunch of Fun Circle Dies to cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card paper. The image was stamped onto the die-cut with Memento – Tuxedo Black using my MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool to get a nice clean image. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then stamped the image again on the same paper that I used for the background and fussy cut around the tea-cup piece. I used a black marker to go around the edges and then paper-pieced it into place using some glue. I die cut the sign using Spellbinders – Shapeabilities S4-322 Grommet Tags and also the background circle using some scrap yellow paper. The sentiment was then stamped on using Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder was applied on top. Then, I used Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool to heat emboss the powder. I also die cut some red hearts with the die-cut that came with the stamp set.

I cut the background pattern from My Mind’s Eye – Lost and Found paper and then used Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Antique Linen to go around the edges. I also used this ink to go around all of my other die cuts.

The card was now ready to assemble. I adhered the background to a base card of 6″ x 6″. Then using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape, I popped up the 2 circles and sign. I added a couple of brads to the sign before adding the tape. I ran the hearts through my Xyron Create a Sticker to make them into stickers and added them around the kitty to complete my card.

2020 Fall / Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! #fallwinter2020clh

Dear Santa!


Hi Everyone! I’m participating in the 2020 Cat Lovers Blog Hop (#2020CatLoversHop) this year.

This is my third year joining the fun event. For six years, Her Peaceful Garden has been sponsoring The Cat Lover’s Blog Hop and it is a lot of fun.

Here is a third Christmas card that I have created for the hop using Christmas Kitten – GSD617 (Gerda Steiner Designs) for the main image and sentiment. These little kittens are getting into all kinds of trouble. It reminds me so much of when I had my little fur babies. LOL!

To make my card, I started with a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″. I cut some Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card the same size and stamped on the fun images. Copic markers were used to colour the images in. Once this was done, I stamped the sentiments using Versa Fine – Onyx Black and applied Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder which I heat set with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.  I adhered the completed image to the base using double-sided tape. To finish off the card, I used some Clear – Wink of Stella to add a little bit of sparkle to all of the baubles and Stickles – Diamond for the hats.

THANK YOU so much to Her Peaceful Garden for hosting this event again this year and also a big THANK YOU to Gerda Steiner Designs for being a sponsor this year as well.

Hi Everyone! I’m participating in the 2020 Cat Lovers Blog Hop (#2020CatLoversHop) this year.

This is my third year joining the fun event. For six years, Her Peaceful Garden has been sponsoring The Cat Lover’s Blog Hop and it is a lot of fun.

 

Here is a second Christmas card that I have created for the hop using Deck The Halls – GSD438 (Gerda Steiner Designs) for the main image and sentiment. I have always had black cats, so that is why I mainly colour all cat images in shades of black. LOL!

To make my card, I started with a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″. I cut some Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card the same sized and stamped on the main image. Copic markers were used to colour the image in. Then I used some Clear – Wink of Stella to add a little bit of sparkle to both of the baubles. For the background, I started with Copic colours BG01 and BG000. Then I blended in Tim Holtz Distress Inks with a sponge dauber working from the inside to the outside. Once this was done, I stamped the sentiment using Versa Fine – Onyx Black and applied Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder which I heat set with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.

The frame was die cut using my Cuttlebug, Crafter’s Companion Luxury Cardstock – Red cardstock and die cut called Hero Arts – Fancy Dies – Christmas Lights Border Fancy. I added some liquid glue onto the back and placed it on top of my finished image. To complete the card, I attached the main image to the base card.

Card Recipe:

Inks: Memento – Tuxedo Black, Versa Fine – Onyx Black, Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Tumbled Glass, Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Broken China, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean

Define Naughty!


Hi Everyone! I’m participating in the 2020 Cat Lovers Blog Hop (#2020CatLoversHop) this year.

This is my third year joining the fun event. For six years, Her Peaceful Garden has been sponsoring The Cat Lover’s Blog Hop and it is a lot of fun.

This year, I created a Christmas card using  Callie Christmas Kitty – R096 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Define Naughty – FLL004 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. I just love this adorable stamp and it reminds me so much of how my cats used to love playing with the Christmas tree ornaments every year. We definitely learned our lesson after the first time, 2 of our little babes as kittens decided it would be fun to take down the entire tree. After that happened, all ornaments put on the tree were unbreakable and cat friendly. LOL!

To make my card, I started with a base of 6″ x 6″. I cut some Recollections – Cranberry cardstock to the same size and attached it directly to the base. For the main background, I used my Cuttlebug and Creative Expression Craft Dies by Sue Wilson – Noble Dies – Double Pierced Squares – Set B to die cut Recollections – Christmas Pets paper. I inked around all of the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Weathered Wood and applied it to the base using 2-sided tape.

For smaller background Recollections – Cranberry cardstock was used and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card paper for the main image. I used My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers die cuts. Copic Markers were used for the main image. Once the image was coloured, I stamped the sentiment using Versa Fine – Onyx Black and applied Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder which I heat set with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.

To complete the card, I attached the main image to the red backing with 2-sided tape. Then I popped up the small background with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I applied Diamond Stickles all around the frame of the image and added a little green bow and some pop-dots to finish off the card.
