P, B & J

I have three co-workers that work with me at the library on Thursday evenings... and their initials are P, B & J.  So when I got this stamp set recently from Sugar Pea Designs, I decided to make them each a card to decorate their work spaces:

Concord & 9th Coffee Card

I found some time to create a second card for the 2018 Spring & Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop tonight!  My niece was here visiting this week, and brought along this great stamp set from Concord & 9th for me to try... and I bought some new Simple Stories papers to go with it.  I made two of them!

I used the Fusion sketch & photo as my inspiration!
Patterned papers are Oh Baby! by Simple Stories; Stamp set is Concord & 9th; Dies are MFT Circle STAX & From the Heart by Verve; Cocoa ink is Memento; Copic markers.

Beer Blueprints Cards

If you scroll back a few posts, you'll see my efforts using the Tim Holtz Wine Blueprint Minis... and today I'm doing the Beer Minis version.  I again pulled out some Distress Oxide inks for the backgrounds, using Twisted Citron, Broken China, Mermaid Lagoon & Blueprint Sketch.  The edging dies are the Spellbinder's Hemstitched Rectangles:

I pulled out Happy Thoughts from Verve & an old CTMH font "Precious Alphabet" to add some sentiments.  I love having a few guy cards in my stash!

Fusion Card Challenge

I'm just posting this under the wire tonight... playing along with the Fusion Card Challenge, using both their sketch and inspiration photo.  I new that I had this old CTMH stamp set with the vintage phones, so I dug it out along with another CTMH set for the sentiment.  I used Lawn Fawn's Polka in the Meadow papers and a few YNS gumdrops to finish it off:

Inspired By & Pattern Happy Sketch

I've had a few new crafty items come my way recently, and decided to pull one out and make a card for a couple of challenges today.  I've used the Inspired By photo as my colour inspiration, and used the May sketch on the Pattern Happy blog.  I don't own any Pattern Happy stamps, but this stamp set is very similar to one that they carry:
I just happened to win this "Cool Treats" Stampin' Up set on the Inspired By challenge a few weeks ago, and had fun stamping all of the ice cream treats.  Stay tuned for a few more in the near future.

Stamp sets are Cool Treats by Stampin' Up and Card Word Puzzle by CTMH; Cardstock is Lagoon & White Daisy, CTMH; Inks are Breeze, Lagoon, Champagne, Baby Pink & Pink Carnation by CTMH; and Onyx Black by Versafine.  Patterned papers are Lawn Fawn.
