Anything is Possible with Coffee

I was able to put together a second card for the 2020 Spring & Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop, and wanted to do a slimline card:
 Using all product that's been around awhile... Cream & Sugar Doodlebug Designs paper, Verve sentiment & die, and Tim Holtz Blueprint Sketches from Stamper's Anonymous.
 The white circle & squares are all adhered with 3D adhesive tape to raise them up a little.
Many thanks to Amy Tsurata for putting together a fun week as always!

2020 Spring/Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop

Today is the start of the 2020 Spring/Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop, so I dug into all my coffee themed goodies to put together a little something:
The plaid is from my favourite paper pad of the moment - Goldenrod by One Canoe Two.  All stamps and dies are from Verve - still my go-to products for coffee cards!

 The pink and silver papers behind the sentiment are both lovely and pearlescent, providing lots of shimmer along with the matte sequins.  I die cut the coffee word die and layered it 4 times to give it a little extra height.
Check out the hop - there will be hundreds of entries, and lots of fun prizes for participants :o)

Quilt Set card

I have a card to share using one of the Art Impressions Girlfriends' sets today.  This is Quilt Set:
 These are the lovely Goldenrod papers by One Canoe Two.  I love the colours.  The gals are coloured in Copic markers, then fussy cut and adhered with foam dots.  That pink paper has a lovely pearlescent shimmer to it, behind the image.

Snowmen cards

I am doing a lot of TV colouring during our lockdown!  So I've made a point of using my Copics to colour images that I'd stamped previously.  I had these two from Art Impressions ready to go, and paired them with some Simple Stories papers:

Christmas Cookies

I love the "How You Bean?" stamp set from Lawn Fawn... and when I saw the Christmas Cookie Add-on stamp set, I thought it would make some very fun Christmas cards.  I did a little TV colouring this week, and was able to put together NINE of these!
 Images are coloured with Copic markers, and then I used the matching dies to quickly cut everything out.  I used up bits of older Christmas papers that I had sitting in my stash to put a few different looks together.
 On the plaid paper, I embossed the sentiment in white so that it would stand out.
 This feels so good to get a jump on my Christmas cards - I've been wanting to do a little of this while we're staying home this spring.

Inspired By

A challenge!  I haven't played along with a challenge in so long... but I had this cherry image stamped and ready to go, so when I saw the inspiration photo for the Inspired By challenge, I decided to colour it up:
This is from the Exclusive Cherry Set by Art Impressions, that is available only at (link below!).  I did a fairly quick colour of the image using my Copic markers, then cut it out with the Inside Out Stitched Rounded Rectangle die, and mounted it on some Echo Park Dots & Stripes paper.  Here was our inspiration:
