Later, Gator

Hi Crafty Friends,
Have you seen Poppy Stamps Whittle Kits? I am showing off the NEW Tropical Gator Kit. It comes with all the cute dies to make a tropical summer scene with a fun sentiment stamp set too.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Do you like card kits or do you prefer to buy products separately?
A: Me? Both!

 Final_2

I started my card by putting together the alligators with their pink tie, bow tie, and hula hoop. I used Poppy Stamps Double Scalloped Stitched Frame Dies for my blue and green frame.
Final_2I put the water dies at the bottom of my frame and added the palm trees to the center. Then I arranged the alligators across the card with the the cute sentiment in the top left corner and the "Hoop to it" next to the hula hooping alligator. I finished my card by adding white highlights to the dies to give them some dimension.

Bring on the Merry

Hi Crafty Friends,
I just adore these cute characters from Hello Bluebird's North Pole Littles.

Mrs. Claus has her little cup of coffee and Santa has his cookie to fuel him through the night.

I Love You More than Coffee...

Hi Crafty Friends,
Coffee cards are always a good idea! I love the Brass & Bliss Mix and Match Coffee Cup dies and Let's Meet for Coffee Sentiment Stamp. 

Make Crafty Friends Q & A
Q: Which kind of coffee do you like the best? Iced? Hot? Black? Latte?
A: Me? I like medium roast coffee with french vanilla stevia

Step #1: I used the Brass & Bliss Java Good Time 6x6 Paper Pad to cut out the two Mix & Match Coffee Cups. I inked the edges with Brass & Bliss Color Fuse Pecan Ink.

Step #2: I stamped the funny sentiment from the Brass & Bliss Let's Meet for Coffee Stamp set and mounted it on a piece of brown cardstock

Step #3: For my background I stenciled kraft paper with the Brass & Bliss Coffee Bean Stencil using the Brass & Bliss brushes with Color Fuse Pecan.

Step #4: I die cut the coffee stenciled background out of the Brass & Bliss Outside Scallop Frame Die and mounted it with the brown scalloped piece to a piece of the Java Good Time Paper.

Step #5: I finished my card by mounting the coffee cups askew in the center of the card and the sentiment below.

Happy Christmas Santa Star Mugs

Hi Crafty Friends,
I was inspired by Hero Arts Stay Crafty with Hero Challenge Color My World and a few other challenges listed below for my Christmas coffee card. I used Hero Arts Fancy Tag Dies Santa & Mug along with Hero Arts Happy Die Cut from the Happy Thanks Stamp and Cut Set. I used Distress Oxide Ink Candied Apple for my background splattered with white Copic paint and silver glitter paint then embossed with the Paper Studio Stars Embossing Folder. Then I masked half of the Happy Die and used the Distress Oxide Ink Candied Apple at the top. I did a similar technique for the green one using Distress Oxide Ink Lucky Charm. I used Hero Arts 5 Point Stars Infinity Dies to make glitter stars in the background just to add more sparkle and stars for the Time Out Challenge #267 Seeing Stars.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Which one do you like better red or green?
A: Me? I like Green

Card #1: Green & Gold
