Coffee Wishes

Hello and happy Saturday to you. It is raining here today so it is the perfect kind of day to stay in and create!
There is a fun blog hop going on at the Coffee Loving Card Makers blog so I thought I would whip up a few coffee themed cards.

My first card started with the CASE this Sketch Challenge #373 and the SSS Wednesday recycle challenge. Using an old dictionary page I stamped and embossed the cup from the HoneyBee Stamps Coffee Break set. Then die cut the neutral rainbow from the HB Rainbow Wishes die set. Using the Sassy Coffee set from Technique Tuesday for the greeting.

 The second card uses the same set from HoneyBee Stamps with the addition of the Stamploration With Coffee greeting. Pretty straight up stamping and making with a little washi tape. Thanks for stopping by, Sue.

Crazy Happy...Thanks

Hey there. I hadn't stamped for a few days and had an idea that popped in my head. The card combines a ton of challenges all rolled into one card. I am in love with how it turned out. Bunches of details that still read CAS!

My card uses a ton of stamps and dies from a lot of different companies. Like a equal opportunity employer. Lol.
My Favorite Things Stamps
Essential Sentiments
Thanks Die
Honey Bee Stamps
Coffee Break
Bee Stamp
Papertrey Ink
Happy Hexagons
Echo Park
Hexagon Confetti Die 

I was working with the sketch and color challenge over on the MFT blog and adding in the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge of "We're All A Buzz". Uniko Studio Challenge this month was Anything Goes with an optional twist of Bright & Happy. I stamped and colored the front with alcohol markers. Then die cut the thanks from the front of the card. It is always a little scary to die cut when your card front is stamped and colored but I wanted the thanks to be a window that would chow the charcoal panel through. Thanks for dropping by. If you have any questions ask away I will try to get back to you as soon as I can.
Thanks again, Sue.

Hello. Hoping you day is off to a great start. We have a new challenge up on the CASology Challenge Blog this morning. Our new cue card is...

My card could not be easier to recreate. Just a simple top-folding white note card, scrap of yellow card stock and Versafine black ink.

The greeting is popped up with a little fun foam and I added a few yellow dots from Hobby Lobby.

CASology #367: Magical

Hey there! There is a brand new cue card up on the CASology Challenge blog today. 
Our new cue should be magical!

The card I created came from an idea my hubby gave me. Thanks honey! I have an unmarked top hat die that I cut out of a satin finish black cardstock. Then cut the band from gold glitter cardstock. The greeting is computer generated and printed on 80 lb white cardstock. Bunny ears are stamped in Versafine black ink from a Papertrey Ink set, Scrambled Eggs. I colored the ears in with an alcohol marker and added a little sparkle with Wink of Stella.

I can't wait to see what you create. The team has some fun cards to spark your creativity.

CASology #366: Zodiac

Hey there. We have a new challenge cue card up on the CASology Challenge Blog today and our new word is...

I wasn't sure what I was going to for this cue, then my daughter gave me a mini paper pad for Christmas that had this paper in it. Perfect. I die cut the star from the celestial paper and heat embossed it with clear detail powder to give it a little shine. The greetings are from a SugarPea Designs grad set and the washi tape was just some I had collected over the years all on a 110 lbs white card base.

I am sure the team has some fun ideas for you to check out then I hope you will join us and create a card too.

CASology #365: Kite

Welcome to Spring! Well I am hoping it at least feels like spring where you are. We have a springy cue card up today on the CASology Challenge blog.

My card is a simple white, top-folding card base that I stamped with the Lawn Fawn Just Flying By set. Then die cut a few outline cloud images in white with the Rainbow Wishes die set from Honey Bee Stamps. Using a small piece of pattern paper from Lawn Fawn I cut out a kite and tail by hand. I folded the kite and lightly sanded the creases. Then mounted it to the card front with a little foam tape. The tail was added with blue bakers twine and glued in place.

I hope you will join the team and make a kite card also. Thanks for stopping by, Sue.

Quarentine Cards...

Okay, not really quarantined because we are healthy but feeling pretty isolated. So why not just make a ton of cards right?? Well that is what I have been up to. How about you? What has been keeping you all busy?

These are going to be some of my first Christmas cards of the year. Just playing with a new challenge I found. CAS and Christmas plus a little mixed media what could be better!
Both cards were made for the CAS Christmas Card Challenge of Winter Flowers. The pink floral card is also for the CAS Mix Up Challenge using aycrilic paint and the CAS Stencil Challenge with heat embossing.
 My card started with a top folding white card base that I stamped with the Stamplorations Joy set in black versafine ink. Then using the Pettite Posies from Papertrey Ink I stamped the mini poinsettas with red and green ink. I added some metalic gold drops to the flowers and just a few drops also spread between the words. Trimmed the card a little and added it to a red panel with gold spotted washi tape along one edge. Clean and simple.

My next card started with another white top folding card base that I stenciled the pink polka-dots in the bottom left corner. I took some light gold acrylic paint and created the brushstroke and some splatters on my card base over the polka-dots. I heat embossd the greeting from Papertrey Ink with gold detail powder on lower right corner. I created the pink poinsettia with dies, watercolors, shimmer mist and liquid gold drops. The glued it on the card front over the stenciling. 

The SSS Monday Challenge is all about using a stencil on your project. Thanks for stopping by, Sue.

P.S. The card below was also added to the CAS Mix Up challenge too. I posted the info on my Instagram account SentSue.
