A Note to Say…

Hello, Today I am back with a quick card and this time I am playing along with TGIF Challenges. Anyone that knows me at all, knows I love Coffee, so when I saw this challenge I thought it could be interpreted in a couple of different ways. I could have shown you my favorite card-making stamps, dies, or techniques but that list is so long…LOL, or I could share with you my favorite drink that I certainly could never survive without. I chose the latter.

I am also linking up over at Happy Little Stampers– Anything Goes with Dies.

A Few Card Details: The Cozy Cup stamp and die set, spoon, and coaster die are all from The Greetery. The little green leaf is from Stampin Up. The bow is from Paper Smooches. The DSP is something I have had in my stash for eons and use it sparingly. The spoon is cut out of mirrored paper. The small flower and heart are just something I have sitting in a magnetic dish on my desk, to use at any moment, and not sure whose they are at this point.

I hope you are having a wonderful day and you found something to do today that brought you JOY! Nanc’

All I Want for Christmas…

Hello, Hope you are doing well! Today I am playing along with the Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge and what they want us to do is make our card masculine. Of course, it must also be Coffee and Christmas-related. I have had this sentiment and fun fold card panel waiting in a drawer for years and I am so happy to finally put it to use.

Card Details: The sentiment is probably from Stampin Up. The AND die and coffee cups are from MFT, and the arrow and Coffee die on the inside are from Verve. I used a bit of Antique Linen Oxide ink to ink up the coffee cups.

I am so glad I finally took the time to once again play along with this challenge, as it’s certainly time to get started on those Christmas cards. Have you started on yours? I have ten done so far!

Take care, Nanc’

Today over at Just Us Girls, sweet Carol Mayne is our hostess and it’s Wild Card Week. Every time I type that I always say Rivalry Week in my head! It is a Sports phrase and hubby and I always say using W’s instead of R’s. LOL Just like Elmer Fudd. Anyway, it is probably funnier to us than to you right about now. 🙂

For those unfamiliar with Wild Card Week, it only happens when there are 5 Saturdays in the month, and the challenge is wide open and the hostess can pick anything she wants. Carol has selected Plaid as her challenge. Easy huh? Today, I have another Coffee Cup Gift card holder for you using some fun plaid paper from Pink and Main.

Card Details: GC holder is from Catherine Pooler, the coffee cup is from MFT, the sentiment is from Verve. If you look closely I have a scalloped piece of vellum behind my stitched circle. I sponged the top and bottom of the cup with Oxide Inks.

Before I go I want to say a HUGE thanks to both Chrissie and Stef for being such fabulous guests this month at JUGS! We have certainly enjoyed having you along.

Hope you will join us at Just Us Girls this week and happy creating, Nanc’

Hello there! I hope you are doing well! It’s the first of November and time for the next hues of colors at Color Hues! Sheri has chosen a perfect color combo for this time of year. I have a fun Gift card holder for you today. I have such a love for all things coffee, so when I saw this die at Catherine Pooler I knew I had to have it. See the rest of the details below.

Card Details: Catherine Pooler Card to Go Die. The background and small coffee cup die are both from MFT. The sentiment is from Verve. I forgot to take a picture of the cup pulled out but you can see how it works as the die is in my photo. I used some light Oxide Inks to put some color on the top and bottom of my cup along with the circle piece. I also have a piece of scalloped vellum behind my cute cup.

Now, stop on by Color Hues and check out the Design Team’s cards along with our guest Asa! I know you will be inspired!

Happy creating, Nanc’

National Coffee Day

Hello It is national Coffee Day and I just had to partake! If you know me at all, coffee is my love language and one of the casualties of Covid is I am now pretty much addicted to DD’s Iced Coffee! My hubby will totally agree with that statement and I have taken him to the dark side with me! It really has become a serious problem. Speaking of Coffee you need to hop on over to The Coffee Loving Card Makers Blog and check out the Hop they have going on. Lots of prizes to be had. Amy Tsuruta does and incredible job with this every year! Well done Amy!

Thanks to my enabling best friend Carol, I recently purchased this fun Coffee Cup Gift Card holder from Catherine Pooler that is super fun to play with. I have linked it up for you, as she can’t be the only one to enable people around here. LOL

Here is the inside so you can see how it works! I took this pic today as I forgot the first time. Notice the sun is not shining! LOL

I also want to add my card to the challenge over at Tic Tac Toe where I have selected the diagonal row of Diecut-Free-Fall. And over at Global Design Project where the Theme is leaves.

Card Details: I paired my new fun Coffee Cup Gift Card Holder with my favorite leaf die from SU. The sentiments are all from retired Verve and the top and bottom of the cup is sponged in yellow Oxide ink. If you look closely there is a piece of scalloped vellum behind the sentiment and some dimensionals. You will be seeing more of these cups real soon!

Take care and happy crafting and coffee drinking!

I made it to Duncan Donuts for my free coffee with purchase…did you? Nanc’

Coffee and Friends…

Hello, It’s Color Week at Just Us Girls and Angie has a great palette for us to work with. I have been wanting to get out my Coffee stamp and die set from the Greetery and I knew these colors would do the trick. I used brown and black as my neutrals and my teal is more on the green side of things so I apologize for that. I would have made a new card but life didn’t cooperate.

Card Details: Stamps and Dies are all from the Greetery, DSP-MFT.

Hope to see you in the gallery at JUGS and you should check out the cards from the team also, they all did a great job and stuck to the right color family! LOL Nanc’

We’re the Perfect Blend

Hello, I wanted to give some more love to the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. They are to the mid 600’s with entries already! WOW! That is so amazing!

Card Details: MFT -Mini Cafe All Day stamps and dies. The little coffee beans that I added to the DSP are from Verve. I did a tiny bit of shading with colored pencil on my coffee-to-go cups. The Ef is from SU too. The hearts are from the SU owl punch.

I hope you have a really wonderful day! Nanc’

Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

Hi, I am back again today for a second post as I wanted to take part in Amy’s Spring/ Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop that started today! The amount of work that she puts into these events is unbelievable! You must check out all the amazing sponsors and prizes she has too. Way to go Amy Tsuruta!

I chose to use one of my favorite sets from the Greetery for this card. The greeting is from Gina K Designs. I used a few other things from my bits and boxes for some accents. I just love the spoon done in mirrored paper.

I hope to be back with another card or two before the deadline!

In other news…Hubby got his first COVID shot today! Woohooo!!! We were back home in about an hour. What a well run site!!! We arrived at 11 and he had his shot by 11:08. The drive was 25 minutes. Take care, Nanc’

Hot Hot Hot

Hello, Today I am playing along with the 2020 Fall/ Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.   If you haven’t checked it out it’s a must! I can’t get over the gallery and all the amazing prizes involved. AMY TSURUTA is amazing for pulling this together! I am so impressed!! My card doesn’t quite resemble fall or winter but I don’t think that was one of the requirements. 

I have had this sweet coffee die set from MFT for quite some time and this is the first card I have made with it. I paired it with a great SU embossing folder and some Verve stamps (HOT) and Heart Border die. The greeting is from MFT. 

I hope you are having a wonderfully creative day! Nanc’

Let’s get together…

Hello,  I finally broke down and purchased this darling coffee set from The Greetery and I am so glad I did.  I have been keeping my eye on a fun challenge called the Global Design Project and this week they asked us to CASE a card.  I decided that I would try to make a repetitive background with my coffee cups like they did with their world die. After I was done making my background paper I decided it needed a bit of something more and I added the little brown hearts from Verve. The sentiment is a mix and match of two other stamp sets from Verve as well. I added the leaves and the bow to mimic the feather and string on the designer’s card. I cut the spoon out of gold paper and the bow die is Paper Smooches.

Have a wonderful day, Nanc’
