Fall Mug

Had so much fun making this CAS card. Dies and fussy cutting, my faves!

The MFT Out on a Limb die for the leaves is flipped, cradling the awesome Create A Smile mug. Scalloped impression around the edge is from Avery Elle Scalloped frames, which makes the impression only. Added the fabulous Paper Smooches Stitched Flourishes 2 above the mug.

Mahalo for stopping by!

Sit For A Spell!

It's time for the Fall Coffee Lover's Bloghop! We had a great time with family from Hawaii, and now it's time to create some coffee/tea/cocoa cards. Can't wait to see all of the creations, always so wonderful and inspiring!

I found these delightful Great Impressions stamps at a recent crafty garage sale (thank you Amy Tsuruta and friends)! I tweaked a Pretty Pink Posh Halloween sequin mix so the green would match the lime green in the papers. Sit for a spell and have some brew!

Mahalo for the visit; happy hopping!

Camping Friends Gown

What? A camping gown? I had some fun playing with the Pretty Pink Posh Camping Friends stamp set! For some reason, I saw a gown when I cut out the tent. It's always a good thing to be able to stretch your stamps!

The tent flaps are the skirt overlay. I stamped the tent, then fussy cut just inside the lines to eliminate the black outline. Embossed after cutting. Cut a heart and attached it to the tent poles, trimmed some of the poles that stuck out. Used a 1/8" white ribbon on the waist. Fun, right?

Stamps: Pretty Pink Posh Camping Friends

Dies: Pretty Pink Posh Scallop Ovals, Pretty Pink Posh Camping Friends (tent), Lawn Fawn Hearts
Embellies: Pretty Pink Posh new 3mm sparkling clear sequins, 1/8" white ribbon, silver embossing powder

Delighted you stopped by!

Baby Girl Giraffe

I am so excited to share this card with you today! Combining stamps and dies from different companies is so much fun. I combined the Avery Elle Burst and MFT Jumbo Peek-A-Boo Circle Window dies and love it!

Oh my gosh, I want to use this combo on more cards. It seemed perfect for a shaker using Pretty Pink Posh sequins. Isn't the giraffe from Wplus9 adorable? I also made some of these cards in blue.

Stamps: Wplus9 Party Animal (giraffe), Avery Elle Storybook (sentiment)
Dies: Avery Elle Burst, MFT Jumbo Peek-A-Boo Circle Window, MFT Blueprints 20 (banner)

So nice of you to visit!

MFT Polynesian Paradise

 Aloha! It's summer in Seattle and the nice weather inspired a tropical card:

Played with this MFT stamp set Polynesian Paradise I have had for a while and am wondering why I waited so long! It stamps beautifully, is fun to color, and is super cute. The dies sped up the process, yay!

So here's a close up since the first pic doesn't show the Shimmer Spritz over the watercolored background. The fun sparkling clear Pretty Pink Posh sequins gave just a touch of bling.

Stamps: My Favorite Things BB Polynesian Paradise, Stampin' Up! Express Yourself (sentiment)
Dies: Die-namics BB Polynesian Paradise, Die-namics Stitched Circle Frames, Papertrey Rounded Labels 

Just hopped the MFT new release. Oh my gosh, the Beary Special Birthday is so adorable.

Mahalo for coming by!

Have Fun!

Back with another card for the Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop! Poolside came to mind, and I pulled out this fun image of the bear in an inner tube from Taj of Honolulu. Made the bright to-go coffee cup in another neon color, and with matching dots. I thought the parchment paper looked a lot like cement. Water is patterned paper. This summer theme is so much fun, but I need to stop making cards and visit the many participating blogs! This is card #589. Wow, so many fabulous cards! Off to hop tonight.

Stamps: Taj of Honolulu: Bear, inner tube, & sentiment. SU Dots for Days
Dies: My Favorite Things LLD Coffee Cup

Mahalo for the visit!

But First, Coffee

I do get a kick out of this sentiment! Poor ducky is waiting for swim time, but must be patient while Mr. Bear is finishing his coffee. 

Stamps: Lil' Inker Coffee Talk (sentiment), Rosie's Roadshow Booker (duck), Rosie's Roadshow Wade (pool), Wplus9 Happy Mail (bear), Denami Petit Four Espresso set (coffee cup), Stampin' Up! Sheltering Tree (grass).
