Fall 2017 Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!

Hello, Crafty Peeps! The Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop
Is almost over with! So I wanted to share with you my final card for this fantastic hop!
Here is my 4th and Final Fall Coffee Lover's Bloghop card! I can't believe it's already almost over! So let me show you what I made:


For this card, I used an image by Createful Heart Digis & Designs called Perkin' Up! You can tell by her look, she is anticipating that first taste of coffee to get her mojo going! I do that too! Ha!

I colored her with my Prismacolors, and added some black and yellow lace onto a mounting sheet that called 50's circles on red patter digital paper that's in my Silhouette Portrait. I thought it was perfect for her! I used pop dots to adhere her to the paper, but I didn't use those for the sentiment. I then mounted both pieces onto red cardstock.

I hope you enjoyed this and that you will join too! There are so many sponsors! Yay!

Outlawz Color Challenge - Sept 19th

 Hello, crafters! I can't believe that we're so close to the end of September...ALREADY! This year is just whizzing by! With that being said, The Outlawz has begun a new Color Challenge! And this month we have the amazing sponsor, Sheep  Ski Designs!

Our winner will get 3 digis from the store!

For this week, DT AJ has chosen a Tic Tac Toe Board. Goodness! There's a lot of goodies to choose from in this photo inspiration! You can pick anything from any of the squares, as long as you go vertical, horizontal, or diagonally. I chose to go from top left to bottom left.


Here is my card, using Ice Queen. What a pretty image she is! Unfortunately, I wish I had felt better at the time I was coloring her in. Ever have one of those days? One day I will do her again! But I hope that she still inspires you to create your own Color Inspiration for this week's challenge!

Everything was cut with the Silhouette Portrait, including the frame around her and the sentiments. I used pop dots on the sentiments to...well..."make them pop"! Ha! What else, right? 

I hope you join us in this week's challenge! And thank you so much for stopping by!

It's time for the 
I have just finished my 3rd card for the Fall Coffee Lover's Bloghop! And I am having a lot of fun doing it! Before I go on, here is my card: 

This one is called Coffee Break by The Paper Shelter. She is so cute! I love this especially because I've been at my laptop many times with my coffee....although, no cupcake, unfortunately! Lol. I used my Prismacolors on her, cut her out with my Silhouette Portrait, and mounted her and the sentiment on my watercolor paper. There really isn't more that needs to be done for this card, as the image and sentiment speak for itself! For any coffee lover, that is!

JessicaLynnOriginal Coffee Lover's Blog Hop - Card #2

Hello, Crafty Peeps! Do you know what time it is?? 
It's time for the 
The DT for JessicaLynnOriginal stamps is joining in the fun AND is one of the sponsors for this amazing hop!  Here is my 2nd project using the Coffee Lover's Yarn.


I must say, I love this cute little image! It's so adorable. The coffee cups have their own little knitted sweaters! Love it! So this was a pretty simple little card to make. After coloring it, I used watercolor paper underneath it and just added a sentiment and a little twine bow. Very easy to do! I wanted the focus to be on the image. I did use pop dots on the sentiment and the image to give it more depth. 

We would love to see you join in on the blog hop using one of Jessica's design! And please feel free to post them to Jessica's Facebook page and in the Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop.

JessicaLynnOriginal - Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!

Hello, Crafty Peeps! Do you know what time it is?? 
It's time for the 
The DT for JessicaLynnOriginal stamps is joining in the fun AND is one of the sponsors for this amazing hop!  Here is my first project using the Fall 2017 Coffee Blog Hop Stamp #2.
I have a coffee station in my kitchen, which was looking kind of plain without any decor above it. So I decided I'd make a piece with one of the newest digitals! I started off by coloring my image with my Prismacolors. Then I printed off the coffee design paper you see there in the background, using my Silhouette Portrait. I had some "watercolor" paper and thought it would go perfect with it. So I added that, some black, and some burlap to the background.

As you can see, my frame has metallic looking colors to it. It didn't have that before, so I used some white Gesso onto it to prime it. I then painted black acrylic paint on top of that, then some Art Alchemy Sparkle to the top of the frame. I used my heat gun to dry it faster. Then it was time to put it all together! And I must say, I was happy with the results!

We would love to see you join in on the blog hop using one of Jessica's design! And please feel free to post them to Jessica's Facebook page and in the Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop.

I really enjoyed coloring her in! I love the Victorian style images anyway, along with any of
the vintage looks. They are so fun! I decided to make this card in the reds and purples. 
I used my Silhouette Portrait to print her out and cut a fancy border around her. I then 
layered her on black paper and added in my embellishments and flowers. 

I sure hope you join in on our challenge! There are prizes to be given every time!

Thank you again for stopping by!
