Coffee Cuties

Hello Coffee Loving friends! I'm over on the Coffee Loving Cardmker's blog today with a super cute caffeinated card! I was waiting for the recent Sugar Pea Designs release like a little kid waiting for a new toy! It was so hard to wait to get my hands on the super cute coffee dies they just released!
The new set has the cutest coffee cups, coffee pot and adorable little arms, legs and faces to go with all of them. I fell in love when I saw them and couldn't wait to get my hot little hands on them. 
Here is my card for today and it just might be my favorite coffee card of all time!

Oh I could not love this trio of coffee cuties anymore if I tried! Sugar Pea Designs has really outdone themselves this time in my opinion!

For the base of my card I did some light stenciling with the Cool Beans stencil in some light grey ink. I then got to work putting together the coffee cups and coffee pot from the Coffee Cuties Sugarcuts dies. The little faces and arms and legs just give them such life and character! The little eyeglasses just put me over the edge with their cuteness!!!

Once I had assembled all the pieces for the cups and pot I popped them up with foam tape on my coffee bean background. I also included a sentiment from the Brew-tiful Sentiments stamps on the bottom of the card in black ink. 

I am in love with those little eyeglasses but I think the little pink cheeks really hikes up the cuteness factor!! And I'm in love with those cute little arms and legs, they make the cups look like they are dancing don't they!

Thanks so much for joining me today! 
I hope you enjoyed my little caffeinated cuties as much as I did!

Have an awesome day, I already am!

Pretty Poinsettia


Have you been hard at work creating your holiday cards since June or are you just starting now? Either way, LDRS Creative has some fabulous stamps and dies to not only put you in the holiday mood but also help you make beautiful cards for your friends and family!

Today I have a slimline card to share with you that I made using 3 products from the recent holiday release.

I just love the Potted Poinsettia Stamp Set and I decided to stamp it on to some watercolor paper and paint it in some pretty reds and greens. To give the flowers some added sparkle I added glitter to the centers.
The Potted Poinsettia Coordinating Dies cut out my image perfectly and I set it aside to dry and work on the rest of the card.

For the base of my card I used the smallest die in the Elegant Stitched Frames Slimline Dies and cut out a white panel. I lightly stenciled some polka dots all over it to give it a bit of interest. I layered the polka dot panel on to a larger panel cut with patterned paper and the base of the card was cut with kraft card stock using the largest die to form the side opening card.

After assembling all the layers on top of each other, I stamped a sentiment from the Potted Poinsettia Stamp Set at the bottom of the card and then popped my flowers up on some foam tape.
For the finishing touch I added some sparkly red jewels around the card.

Such a festive holiday card! 

Thanks so much for joining me today, I hope you enjoyed my card and will check out all of the 
LDRS Creative holiday collection and get started on your own holiday cards!

Have a great day, I already am!

Disney Coffee!


Welcome Coffee Lovers! Today I am up on the Coffee Loving Cardmaker's blog with a couple of famous mice! It's amazing how iconic a rodent can become if you dress them in black, red and yellow and relocate them to Orlando or California!

❤️ 💛 🖤 😂 🐭 😂 ❤️ 💛 🖤 

These famous fun loving Mickey and Minnie themed coffee cups were made using the 
Bear Cozy Kit from super sponsor Ellen Hutson.
This kit features enough materials to make TWELVE cozies!

* 10 piece die set
* 6 colors of Essentials by Ellen Wool Felt 8 1/2" x 11"
*6 colors of DMC Floss
* Large vinyl mesh zippered storage pouch

Instead of using the felt in the kit I decided to make these cups out of cardstock. If you're interested in seeing the cups I made using the felt from the kit, you can check out this blog post:

Here is a closeup of the Mickey inspired cup using the dies from the Bear Cozy Kit :

And here is Minnie! The bow from the kit was the perfect addition to my Minnie cup!

I just love how these cups turned out! 
It's amazing what you can create with a little imagination and some basic shapes!

Thanks so much for joining me today 
Have a great day, I already am!
