Treat Yourself

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’

Have you had enough Coffee yet?

One more card using this fabulous Coffee set from Verve!  This time I am linking up to The Paper Players Sketch Challenge. I decided to make my card Vertical instead of Horizontal. I always have a devil of a time photographing horizontal cards. The square stitched dies are SU and the heart banner die at the base is Verve as well.  I made my own background paper once again.  I believe the Apricot polka dotted paper is from Bo Bunny, but don’t hold me to it.

Hope you are having a fabulous week and haven’t gotten caught by the Flu/ or Respiratory crud that is going around unlike me! 😦 Time to go heat up my coffee!  Nanc’

Great ideas start with…

Want to sneak in a post really quick before I hit the hay.  I have been eyeing this great color combo over at The Color Throwdown this week and I finally snuck in a few minutes today while it was raining to play along.  I got out one of my all time favorite stamp sets from Verve called Coffee and its matching die too. I am in LOVE with the shape of this coffee mug! It super whimsical and cute at that same time.  I loved it so much, I decided to make my own background paper too. The coffee cup stamp doesn’t come with the heart, but I thought it worked really well, so I added it.

Thanks for always making my day with your visits and lovely comments. It sure makes me smile! Nanc’

Keep Calm and Drink Coffee!

Hello Friends, I am going to sneak in a quick post this evening just hours before this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch comes to a close.  I just recently got this great Coffee stamp set and two die cuts from Verve and I couldn’t wait to use them for the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. I doubled the Coffee die for some depth and cut the sentiment in half to help stay with the sketch.  Not only is this set simply awesome, but Julee the owner of Verve sent me these pieces of Designer Paper with my order too. Love them! Thanks Julee! You will be seeing another card made with these great papers very soon. This card is rather simple and I felt it needed something else, but I just decided to leave it be before I ruined it. Sometimes too much is too much! Ya know what I mean?

Now go check out the Verve products that I have linked up for you,  they happen to be on SALE!  Hugs, Nanc’
