Happy Early Caffeine Burst

A friend’s Birthday is right around the corner and I felt the Coffee Cups framelits would be perfect for her. I’ve been using up a lot of my Designer Series Paper lately in my efforts to #cutitdonthoardit, but I was really keeping a tight grip on this particular sheet of coffee rings. I just love it as the background and I’m so glad I used it, along with some Color Theory DSP for the cup. There’s a lot of dimension going on here, as I popped up the Crumb Cake oval, the cup, the sleeve and the lid. I think it allows the thickness of the Bitty Bow to fit in quite well. The Magnetic Platform is a dream come true, cutting out the shapes without the dies moving on me. I hope my friend likes her card as much as I enjoyed making it!

P.S. Big thanks to Hunter for telling me to put the ribbon behind the oval. I struggled a little with that placement!

Colorful Smiles

I am so glad I decided to get the Color Theory Suite on pages 146-147 of the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog. The colors and designs evoke a colorful calmness. So what better way to send a little Thank You note than with a relaxing drink and a lounge chair? Hunter selected Berry Burst and I decided to add a touch of Crushed Curry pop of Basic Black and I think it’s a lovely color combo! The new Mini Dimensionals are awesome – I used one little one on each drink to pop it up. So nice to not have to cut a regular size Dimensional into smaller pieces!

Sweet Elegant Twist of Watercolor Wings

I am beside myself with happiness over the new Embossing Paste!  It is so easy to use and a little bit goes a long way! I used about 1 Tablespoon of paste mixed with 2 drops of Lemon Lime Twist Classic Ink Refill and was able to create 10 card fronts! I was struggling to figure out what colors I wanted to use, so I consulted a handy website called My Create Ink to randomly select my color combination using the Color Lab. It’s an awesome, free site that you can browse color combinations or select one, two, or three colors and let it generate additional colors. I selected Elegant Eggplant and let it come up with combinations for me to choose from. It’s super fun!  http://colorlab.mycreateink.com/

To My Amazing Son

I had a wonderful time visiting my son this past Memorial weekend. He left the base and stayed with his sister and me at our hotel. It was a much needed vacation for all of us and it went by way too fast. I love to sneak a card into his suitcase any time he visits and I completely forgot to make him a card before his sister and I hit the road for the 14 hour trip. I know he’ll still appreciate it, though. By the time this blog post is published, he should have already received it.

To My Amazing Son

I made a fun Z-fold card and decided to rough up the edges a little.  Even though I have lots of awesome new products, these work together quite nicely for a classic masculine card.
