Cup of Coffee in Orange

Hello and hope everyone is well.  I've been home a lot lately and you would think that means more crafting time, but honestly, I haven't been inspired.  I check out other people's blogs and think "that's wonderful!! I'm going to make a card too!"  But then it just doesn't happen.

I did start this a couple weeks back and decided it had to be finished.  Plus, it's a reminder of the current Anything Goes challenge at Corrosive Challenge Blog!!

I'm featuring the I Luv Coffee stamp set from Ikes Art.  Basically I'm taking the same layout as another card but changing it up a bit.  I've added a copic refill smooshed background, and a paper pieced image.  The sentiment is from From the Heart Stamps.

I popped up the white frame and the cup for a bit of dimension.  Other than that, this is rather CAS and simple.  So you still have time to join in till the end of the month for a chance to win!

Bear Balloon Double Point Fold card

Hello and Happy St. Patrick's Day!!  Of course the little Leprechaun paid us a visit, made a bit of a mess, and left some gold coins behind.

Today at Catch the Bug Blog is new release day.

So this little cute balloon bear is now available at the Bugaboo Stamps shop.  I've been inspired lately by CardzTV and all the fancy fold videos Mary has been posting.

So I followed along with her Double Point Fold card to make my fancy fold.  I encourage you to see her video to fully understand how this card unfolds.  The white area on the polka dot paper is the writing area.

The sentiment is from Stampin' Up's Teeny Tiny Wishes set, and I actually pulled out an embossing folder for the dots texture.  So that's it from me today.  Don't forget to wear a bit o' green!

House Mouse Birthday Cupcake card

Hello and yay it's Friday.  This weekend I will be making my annual St. Patrick's day meal, so I've got a lot of cleaning and meal prep to do.  But even with all the hustle and bustle, I do enjoy having people over to celebrate.

But for today, I would like to share a birthday card made for a dear friend I have never met IRL.

I'm featuring a cute House Mouse stamp, framed with my new MFT frames.  I got this wonderful discount that I couldn't pass up and have been eyeing these frames for a while now.
I have heat embossed the sentiment from Stampin' Up's Teeny Tiny Wishes set - one of my favorite stamps sets ever, and added a little glaze to the flames.  Super simple layout.

So that's all from me for now.  Have a wonderful weekend!

This meets the following challenges:  House Mouse Challenge: #311 Embossing, Cute Card Thursday: Anything Goes, 2 Crafty Critter Crazies: Anything Goes, and Watercooler Wednesday: All About Occasions.

  Thank you House Mouse!

  Thank you Watercooler Wednesday!

Hippo Got Cake card

Hello.  Today I would like to share a birthday card.

Quite a while back, I made a purchase from Paper Wishes.  It's sort of like a card kit, called Summertime Gumdrops, with papers, die cuts, and something called Dazzles.  So the hippo and sentiment are from this kit, and the layout is made using an MFT Die-Namics set (used in my trusty Cuttlebug).
The black hippo portion is the Dazzle that I put on white cardstock, colored with Copics, and fussy cut.  The sentiment is also a Dazzle that I put directly on the DP.  The Dazzles are shiny, and I actually quite like them.  I popped up the hippo for a little dimension.

That's about it for today.  Thanks for taking a look and have a wonderful day.

This meets the following challenges:  Cut it Up: #195 Green With Envy, Cuttlebug Mania: Birthday (Must use a Cuttlebug), Digi Choosday: Anything Goes, Die Cut Divas: Anything Goes, and Through the Craft Room Door: Anything Goes.

Thank you Cuttlebug Mania!
