Coffee Lovers Blog Hop: The Holiday Edition Part 2

I am sharing my second card for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.
HERE is my first card for the hop, a pop-up card. 
 
This one features a design from my Silhouette Cameo and Echo Park papers.
 
Check out Amy Tsuruta's blog for all the information on
how to join the fun and be eligible for some great prizes. 
 


I used my Silhouette Cameo to create these cards.   
I cut the tops in heavy weight paper.  The "sleeves" are made from Echo Park paper.

 
The top is attached when it is cut on the machine.  How cool! 
Makes an easy shaped card.

 
I made a few designs.
Simple and Clean.
I will use these as gift card holders for the boys' teachers.
 

Thanks for visiting.
Enjoy your hopping,
Kelly

Coffee Lovers Blog Hop: The Holiday Edition Part 1

Happy Holidays!
Feels like I fell off the planet for a few weeks,
but believe me when I say that I am still crafting.
Work has kept me from posting and visiting blogs,
but I wanted to be sure to join in the fun with the Coffee Lovers Holiday Blog Hop.
There are many great sponsors so check out the hop,
get inky and link up for a chance to win.
 
All the info, link up spots and sponsors can be found on Amy Tsuruta's blog.
 


 
Here's is my first card for the hop.  I used most of the sentiments in my Hero Art Holiday set for the front.  The words are embossed in Ranger Platinum.


 
and VIOLA!  You open it up and it is a POP-UP card.
My 7 year old BOY was in the craft room one day and showed me how to make
one by hand.  His art teacher showed him how to make it.
My pop-up features the Reverse Confetti "Be a Barista" set.
I stamped it on red foil and heat set the ink with clear embossing powder.
I used wire for the steam and a wee bit of dimension fabric paint for the "cream".
 


Supplies:
Stamps: Lawn Fawn and Reverse Confetti
Ink: Ranger black., HA silver
Misc: wire, clear embossing powder, Ranger embossing powder
 
 
 I have another card to share featuring my Cameo.
Thanks for visiting.
Go get another cup of java and enjoy hopping,
Kelly

Poppy Sketch #17

Back today with another card for Poppy Sketch Challenge #17.
This challenge is sponsored by Starving Artists Stamps.
I am using an adorable alien stamp called Final Frontier

I stamped the alien in Navy ink and paired it with a sentiment by Lawn Fawn.
The shimmering silver background paper is by Cut Cardstock.
The glittery star and raspberry papers are by DCWV.
I embossed the stars in white to create a background.
The circles were made with Lawn Fawn dies.  


 

Thanks for stopping by.
I can't wait to see what you create using this great sketch and color challenge.

Poppy Sketch #16: Gift Card Holder

Back today with another card for the Poppy Sketch Challenge Blog.
We are using Cut Cardstock for our cards.

Here's my interpretation. 
The base is Cut Cardstock. It has a bit of shimmer to it and it is VERY sturdy.
The patterned papers, die and stamps are all by Lawn Fawn.
I made a gift card holder by layering the LF "Stitched Journaling" die.
 
 
 
Supplies:
Stamps: Lawn Fawn "Birthday Tags" and "Pa-rum-pa-pum-pum"
Die cut: Lawn Fawn's "Stitched Journaling" die
Patterned Papers: Lawn Fawn's "Dewey Decimal"
Cardstock: Cut Cardstock
Punch: Fiskars
 
 
Can't wait to see what you make,
Kelly

Sympathy Card

Sharing a card I gave to a friend going through a difficult time. 
The bunny's sweet face was sure to cheer anyone up.

 
 
I colored Rosie with Copics.
The twine is from The Twinery.
That raised panel is by Nestablilites.
The background stamp is "friendship definition" by HA.



 I am entering this into the Purple Onion Stacey Yacula card challenge.
Thanks for looking!

You are a Blessing

Sharing a card I made with a fall theme.
I was inspired by a sketch challenge at A Cherry on Top.

Here's the awesome sketch:

 
I used Lawn Fawn's "Harvest Season" and Stitched Journaling die.
The background is Punchinella by Neat and Tangled.
I colored the cornucopia with Copics and swiped a bit of Wink of Stella over the pumpkin.
The sentiment from the set is embossed with Ranger Platinum.  
 
 
 



I am also entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp: Anything Goes Challenge.
I like to shop a couple different places!
Thanks for looking,
Kelly

Baby Cards featuring Lawn Fawn

Sharing a card I designed to greet new babies.
Both cards feature Lawn Fawn's "Bon Voyage" set. 
The boy version also used "Harold's ABCs". 
The planes were colored with Copics.




The girl version features pink patterned paper by Echo Park and a sentiment by Verve.

 
I am posting to share these for the Lawnscaping FB DT call.
I think I have 23 Lawn Fawn sets and more on the wishlist.
ALWAYS more on the list...
Thanks for stopping by to look at my projects.
Have a great week!
