Welcome to the Lawnscaping June Blog Hop! Theme! COFFEE!

Hi everyone!

If you're going along the list you will have arrived from Curl E. Cue's post.  

I and SUPER excited to have to the opportunity to join the Lawnscaping Coffee Blog Hop this year!

I am humbled to be among these talented hoppers and awesome sponsors.  If you're going along the list you will have arrived from Curl E. Cue's post.  

Prizes! We have lots of sponsors, which means lots of prizes so comment, comment, comment! Make sure you show all the hoppers some love.
 Winners will be chosen by unique comments left on all the hopper's posts.   

 Here is a list of all the AWESOME sponsors.  Be sure to show them some love too by clicking on their links below to see what great products they all have.

Now on to my card!  I have a lovely Cafe Latte sitting pretty on a stand just waiting for that special someone to come and take it away!

I used the Lawn Fawn Love you a Latte and Baked with Love stamps sets.  The cup and sentiment is from Love you a Latte and the cake stand is from Baked with love and coloured them in with my copics.  I added a twine bow and white dots to the stand for interest.  

I cut out the front panel from the Lawn Fawn stitched rectangles and then framed it with a piece of grey card stock.  
I used a circle die and cut it out of printer paper so it wouldn't be too thick when I stamped it out.  I used a wood panel background and used a light grey ink then took a black pen and added stitch lines.
To finish off the card I took some hearts I had in my stash and added some sequins.

That's it for me.  A list of all the supplies are at the bottom of this post.

Happy Birthday Sister!

Hi everyone!

I'm back here a card that a coworker requested for her sister's birthday.  She loves cats so of course I thought of the adorable "I knead you" set from My Favourite Things stamps.

I started out with the cute kitty in the box, which is normally where I can find my kitty whenever there is an empty box laying around.  I had a recycling bag on the floor one day and I went to push it out of the way with my foot and the cat came running out of the bag!  Just about scared the daylights out of me!  Hehe!

I actually used the paw prints from the "You make my tail wag" set from MFT and stamped out the background with SSS Fog ink.

Then I coloured in the kitty and his fish with my copics.  I've been watching Sandy Allnock making magic come alive with her colouring and I need to practice more.

I used the SSS Happy Messages stamp for the sentiment and Milo's ABS's for the Sister and I stamped those in Slate SSS ink.

I used the Wink of Stella on the fish and the collar but unfortunately you can't really see it on the fist.

I used the Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle dies for the panels.  I used, I think it's fog card stock for the bottom panel (it was in a monthly card kit).

Stay tuned on Friday for the Lawnscaping Coffee Lovers Blog hop!  
I can't wait to show you my card!

You're Fintastic - Card

Hi everyone!

I just couldn't wait to post this one!  I had the idea when I was oogling over my recent order from Butterfly Reflections Ink and it hit me!  Here it is!!

I used the LF Fintastic Friends for the fish bowl, fish and coral.  This set is just adorable as will all of the Lawn Fawn stamps.  If you follow me, you'll notice that I am a HUGE fan!!!

I used Memento Onyx for all the stamping as this is the best ink to use with copics.  There is also the MFT Hybrid ink that works well also.  I used my copics to colour in the images as well as the table and the wallpaper.  I thought I would go out on a lim and try my own background.  It's a bit scary but I think it turned out okay!

I used the LF stitched oval dies and this is the large set and cut out my panels and card base.  I popped up the top panel on foam tape.  I used the Petite Patterns for the base and 110# card stock as the base.


That's it for now.  Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!

Monster Wishes - The Alley Way Stamps

Hello everyone!

I have a card today from  The Alley Ways Stamps Oogles.  I just love this set.

I stamped him and the sentiment out with Memento Onyx directly onto the card base.  That is a pretty scary thing but I think I did okay!  I used my copics to colour him in as well as used the W family to add in the ground.

I used the Pico embellisher for his eye and I thought it might be thick enough but when I added in the glossy accents it kind of bled into each other.  So I took something pointy and swirled it a but and used a black pen and added in the black dot.


Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!
