Coffee and Friends

Wow...two days in a row and two challenges!  Today I'm playing along with SSS Wednesday Challenge using patterned paper.

I used the cute paper I got in a SSS kit and the stamps that came in that kit.  These papers have such fun colors and prints!  

I made a shaker card with some dies from PTI.  I paper pierced all the different patterns for the coffee cups, added brown cardstock for the coffee, and stamped a heart and added swirls.  I also added sugar cubes which were from the kit.   The card came together pretty easily.  The polka dot paper is also from that same kit and is all Doodle Bug Cream and Sugar paper.  

Hope you enjoy and will subscribe to my blog.  Have a great night!

PTI Make it Monday Patone Paint Chips

Oh my, just realized it had been close to a year since I posted here!  This year has been a tough one but everyday gets a little better!  I'm still creating and having fun with paper!
Today I played along with Papertrey's Make it Monday!

I die cut and stamped 3 lollipops from   Colorful Treats!  I stamped the solid image in Pale Peony 
and the swirls in Hibiscus Burst. The sentiment is from KIS: Friendship.  The card stock is also Pale 
Peony.  I added sparkle with Wink of Stella and glued some cute sprinkles from Honey Bee Stamps!

I decided to make another card using the same stamp set only this time I used the Popsicle.

I stamped the popsicles on water color paper and watercolored the chocolate and colored in the sprinkles with copics.  I added the same sprinkles and Wink of Stella!  This cardstock is Cocoa Bean.

That's all for me today!  Have a great week!!  Please follow my blog.  I will try and post more often now that life has slowed down a bit!!

Little Beach Houses

Well it's been over a year since I posted!  How'd that happen?  My mom got sick number one and I spent a good bit of last spring and summer in SC with her.  She survived but it has been a long road!  My twins were in their final year of college so I tried to see their sporting events as much as possible.  My oldest son joined the Navy.  Life just keeps moving forward and I try to keep up!! 😅  Enough of that!  Today my post is all about a blog hop with Papertrey Ink.

This is the inspirational photo!
I decided to make some little beach houses!  I'm going to the beach next week with my family and extended family and I thought I would make these for the girls and put some lip balm, hair ties, little hand sanitizers and chocolate in them!  It all fit! 

These little houses were made with Betsy Veldman's Tiny Town houses.  The roof was die cut out from the new Tiny Town Sweet Shoppe.  Betsy had made a beach house on her blog and I took her idea and made them my own.   I think the girls will love these.

I added tags to the houses with the new PTI's Some Like It Hot stamp set.

I hope you like these little beach houses.  Thanks to PTI and Betsy for the idea!!

Reverse Confetti Sketch #23 challenge

Wanted to enter the Reverse Confetti Sketch #23 this week.  I had a great time creating something fun!

I played with several RC stamps and dies...Fabulous Flamingos, Here We Go and Love Note dies.
 Love these stamp sets and matching dies.  I die cut the little car from Away We Go and stamped it in a hot pink and used cute little brads for the wheels and headlight.  It looks like a little Beetle.  I wanted it to look like the flamingo was driving it with his head stuck out the sunroof!  I had to fussy cut the windows out and added a clear cardstock window, then Glossy Accents.  

I water colored some paper and cut out one of the hearts from Love Notes and used that as my sun.  The flamingo was cut out of that paper as well.  I cut clouds from white cardstock and added the sentiment from Away We Go.  Added some die cut raindrops and added Glossy Accents.  My road is a strip of black that I die cut some stitching from RC Office Edges to create the lines.

Life is an Adventure if you have the sunroof open in the rain and you are on a road trip!!  Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday afternoon!  The rain has finally stopped here and the sun is out!!

Sweet Sixteen Box Card

Good morning!  Today I have a box card that I made for a friend's niece.  She requested red, black and white and I added a little gold too!  I was super happy with the way it turned out.  I had ordered a new die from Winnie and Walter called Lulu Fringe.  I used that to make little cheer pom poms.  I also had just gotten these fun word dies from them as well called The Big, Bold and Party Cutaways.  I used that for my Celebrate! 

I love making these box cards.  Once you have done a few, they go pretty fast.  The hard part is deciding what to put on them and in them.  You are suppose to be able to fold and put in an envelope...I had to make a special one for this one as it was a little big.  That's ok as the envelope was made out of gold dotted vellum!
Have a great day and get a little crafting in!!!!  :)

Mason Jar Easter Toppers

Happy Sunday!  I hope your day is sunny and bright like mine!  We do not usually have so much snow but schools here have been closed for a total of eight days, but hopefully we are on the way to Spring!  I've been busy working on some Spring and Easter projects that I thought I'd share.
Betsy Veldman has created a series going forward called Petite Places with Papertrey Ink that I am in love with.  The first in the series is a little church...swoon!  This month she is releasing a Sweet Shoppe.  I love minature buildings!!  Betsy showed how you can make toppers for Mason Jars in some of her videos and I wanted to make some for Easter.

 Ok, so you see how my window is a little crooked but they are so little.  From afar you really cannot tell it's a little off.  There is landscaping for the church too.  Betsy has thought of everything!!

I have also made some with little bunnies from Impression Obsession dies.  

 Sorry for the glare.  Still working on my photography.  Well there you have little creations!  Hope you enjoyed.  

Materials:  cardstock from PTI, Spring confetti collection from PPP, Stickles, the grass from terra textures.

Papertrey Ink's February 2015 Blog Hop Challenge

This is the image of PTI's February Blog Hop Challenge.  It is so beautiful.

Blog Hop Inspiration 

I decided to play along this time as I had that whole week last week to play!  This is what I came up with . . .

  I used Papertrey Ink's Doodlie Do stamp set and dies.  I heat embossed the Versamark images with white embossing powder first.  I then used a variety of inks to watercolor the flowers and leaves.  I used mostly Raspberry Fizz with some Sweet Blush mixed in and brushed that onto the flowers.  For my background I first embossed some watercolor paper with a chevron embossing folder, and then used Distress Inks and  water on an acrylic block to smoosh the colors on one at at time.  The sentiment is also from the Doodlie Do stamp set

 I took the back ground after it dried and sprayed it with some gold mist to give it a little sparkle.  I arranged my flowers and used dimensional tape to give them a little lift.
 Lastly I adhered it to a card base made from PTI cardstock and added some enamel dots.  It looks like Spring.  I could use some Spring right now.

Hope you like my little creation.  Happy Hump Day!!  Hope you get a little crafty today!  :)
