Merry Coffee - 2

A card for the ongoing Winter coffee lovers blog hop

I began by randomly stamping the snowflakes stamps on a beige coloured card panel. Later, trimmed this panel and mounted it on a beige card base. On a white card, stamped the ornaments using various dye inks by Lawn Fawn. Die-cut this using a stitched rectangle die. Drew lines to show the string over the ornaments using a black gel pen. Stamped the sentiment on the bottom of the panel. Stamped the critter/cup, coloured with zig markers and fussy cut the images. Adhered the images on the die-cut. Lastly, added few sequins on the snowflakes to add some element.

One more card for the ongoing Winter coffee lovers blog hop!

It is Christmas time and our very own Santa, Reindeer and the Snowman are all tired bringing gifts, playing along and doing their chores to keep everyone happy. All of them have decided to take a break from their busy schedule and have a cup of Tea! Hey! Let it not worry you, your gifts will surely reach you on time. 

Meanwhile, here's the Team enjoying their much-needed TEA TIME! 

This is how I created the scene for this card. 
On a white card panel, I stamped some Xmas trees and coloured them with Polychromos. Distressed the clouds over the trees using peacock feathers DI. Drew few birds. I die-cut another white card using the Snowdrift die from MFT. Layered this panel on to the coloured trees. Mounted this layered panel on a green coloured card base. Stamped the sentiment (a combination of two stamps from my stash) Stamped the images (figures and cups), coloured with zig clean markers and fussy cut them. Adhered these images on the card to create a scene. Lastly, added glossy accents to the cups to give added effect.

Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas ahead!

Let's have Coffee!

Hello friends!
Today I am showcasing a CAS card for the ongoing Winter coffee lovers blog hop!

I have used the Gerda Steiner Coffee stamps for my card.
The Coffee Monster stamp set for the images and Coffeesaurus stamp set for the sentiment.

I stamped the images (Critter and cup) using Black Archival ink, coloured it with Zig clean brushes and an aqua pen & fussy cut the image. On a white card base, I distressed one corner using Peacock feathers DI. Adhered the critter image on it and the cup over the critter. I drew the horns on the critter to give a Christmassy/Wintery feel to my card. Lastly, stamped the sentiment on the card to complete it.

Merry Coffee

Hi, friends!
Another card for the Winter Coffee lover's blog hop.

For this card,
On a Kraft top folding card base, I randomly stamped the snowflakes with Versamark and heat embossed them with white EP. 
Using my Fine tip Versamark pen, I drew some smaller snowflakes and heat embossed them too with white EP. 
On a white strip, I stamped the sentiment. The original "Merry Christmas" sentiment is masked and stamped along with "Coffee" to get the "Merry Coffee" sentiment. 
I stamped the image on Montval Canson paper, coloured with zig clean brushes and fussy cut it. 
Mounted the image on the card using foam adhesive. 
Lastly, using my Uniball white gel pen, I made few snowflakes to fill in the empty gaps. 

Few more pics!

Hi, friends!
Here's my first card for the Winter Coffee lover's blog hop.

My card features Stamped images from Craftyscrappers and Gerda Steiner.
On a white card panel, I distressed the Twisted Citron DI through a stencil. 
Stamped the images on Canson Montval, coloured with Zig clean brushes and fussy cut them. 
On the card panel, I mounted a die-cut circle over the distressed BG. 
Adhered the tree cut-out on one side. 
I stamped my sentiment on the panel. The sentiment is again a combination of the Santa's Christmas stamp set from Craftyscrappers and Coffeesaurus stamp set from Gerda Steiner. I masked the Christmas sentiment (May your Christmas be blessed with love and joy Always) and stamped COFFEE from the other set. 
Mounted this card panel on an Apple green coloured side fold card base. 
Mounted the dinosaur image using foam adhesive to give it a pop. 
Lastly, added few sequins to complete my card.

Christmas tags

Hi friends!

Do you ever find it difficult to stick to your plans? 
I, for sure, am always running behind But with a family around that is acceptable. 

I had great plans of participating in the 25 days of Christmas tags hosted by Tracey this year, but it didn't happen. 

I did make the tags but was late in making and submitting them. 

Here are my tags made for this Holiday season (Few are still in the making)

The bigger tags are the plain tags from Darice matted with pattern paper. One of the tags has a distressed background. 
The Star and circle tags are die-cut from the Lawn Fawn Perfectly plaid pattern paper, using Stitched circle dies by DCAM and Stitched star dies by Gina Marie.
 The images are stamped with Black Archival ink on Canson Montval paper, coloured with Zig clean markers and fussy cut. 
The images and sentiments are from the stamp set Santa's Christmas by Craftyscrappers

That's all for today!

Have a great day!

Merry Christmas

Hello friends!
Christmas fever is completely over us now. 
We are all busy making Christmas cards. 

Now, I wanted to make multiple cards (instead of a single) at one go. 
I made these 4 cards simultaneously. You will see how!

I used the "Santa's Christmas" newly launched stamp set from Craftyscrappers for these cards. 

I took a couple of pastel green card bases measuring 4.5" x 6". Using Lawn Fawn's "Freshly cut grass" dye ink, I randomly stamped all the sentiments from the stamp set over the card base. (I did not use the larger/longer  sentiments) Once the ink was dry, I die cut one card using a Stitched star die by Gina Marie and other card using heart die by Spellbinders. I trimmed each of this die-cut panel to the size 4" x5". I stamped the images from the stamp set on Canson watercolour paper. Coloured them using Zig clean markers and an Aqua pen. Fussy cut all the images. Stamped the sentiments on a black cardstock using Versamark ink and heat embossed them using white EP. 

On to the assembling of the cards.
I foam mounted both the die-cut card panels on a green card base each. Adhered the Santa image and the sentiment strip on the card. Lastly, added few enamel dots to add some elements.

I adhered white card panels to green card bases. Foam mounted the die-cuts over some twine. Adhered the images and the sentiment. Lastly, added some enamel dots to complete the cards. 

Here are the pictures.



Hope you liked my cards!
Looking forward to your feedback.
