Newton Loves Coffee ~ Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

winter-coffee-lovers-blog-hop

It’s that time of the year again and I am so excited to be participating in the “Winter Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop”.  I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Amy Tsuruta and the rest of her team responsible for facilitating this great hop!  I don’t know how you guys do it but you all absolutely rock!

Today I have made a card showcasing products from the #KatScrappiness store, as a Design Team member.  Incidentally, today is also Kat’s birthday so there is a sale at the shop for all Halloween/Fall/Christmas category for 15% off (no coupon code necessary).  The promo is valid from today until December 11, 2016 (ends at midnight PST).  Here is the link to the shop http://www.katscrappiness.com/?aff=21  You will also get a free bag of jingle bells for every order  during this time frame.

I started out by stamping my image using my stamping tool with memento tuxedo black ink on Neenah Solar White card stock. I colored Newton and the coffee image using my Copic markers W1, W2 and W5, R00, R29 and R39.

I wanted to use warm Christmas colors for this card so I die-cut the front panel using my Gina Marie wonky stitches nesting dies, and the Bo Bunny 6×6 Paper Pad Merry & Bright Collection. Red and Beige just goes so well together.

I also used a wreath die that I recently purchased and embellished it with the new Deck the Halls sequin mix by Kat Scrappiness. I love this new sequin mix.

I finished off the design by adding the snowflake sequin on the coffee mug and Santa hat for Newton. I hope you like my card. Check out the new sequin mixes and script dies available at the shop – they are amazing! The supplies I’ve used are listed and linked below.

Build-A-Snowman ~ Handmade Christmas Tags

Christmas is here before you know it and I wanted to make some handmade Christmas tags to put on my presents this year.  I wanted to use this cute die set that I purchased from KatScrappiness called “build-a-snowman” by Cheery Lynn Designs.

 

Aren’t they adorable?

Here is the process video if you would like to replicate them.  You don’t have to use the same dies that I have used. You can get inexpensive stickers at the Dollar store or any craft store to make handmade tags.

 

I hope you got inspired today.  Supplies I’ve used are listed and linked below:

“Beary” Christmas ~ CDD Monthly Challenge

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you are all having a great day so far. I am back today to share with you two Christmas projects that I have made to get you in the mood for the holidays.

 

The December monthly challenge at Craftin’ Desert Divas (#CDDMonthly) is all about Christmas and I got inspired by the amazing mood board that Tara (the owner) has put together. For people joining the challenge, Tara is also giving away a free digi-stamp called “Beary Christmas”. Thank you Tara for this amazing digi!  If you would like to join the challenge and get the free digi-stamp, please join the CDD Gallery Facebook Group here:

 

This is the mood board for this month’s challenge. Isn’t it beautiful?

Dear Santa Christmas Cards

Hello stampers and crafters! I am back today and I am sharing two cards that I designed, showcasing the Dear Santa stamp set, the Kat Scrappiness Christmas Tree and Happy Holidays Dies and a whole lot of other supplies available for purchase at the shop.

Since I have just arrived a few hours ago from spending Thanksgiving with my family, I will not have a process video for you today for these two cards. However, these cards are pretty simple and can be mass-produced.

For the first card, I started out by stamping a bunch of the cat images, the ball of yarn, and the presents on Neenah Solar White card stock, using memento tuxedo black ink. I colored the image using my Copic markers. I also die-cut the Christmas tree using the Doodlebug “Here Comes Santa Claus” patterned paper, then adhering the pieces together with my favorite Tombow liquid adhesive.

I wanted a white-on-white background to make my images pop but I didn’t want my card panel to look flat, so I decided to use my Taylored Expressions Twinkling Holiday embossing folder. Embossing the card stock gave it more of a dimension. I adhered all of my pieces together using my liquid adhesive and Scotch foam tape, and finished the card design with a cute Lawn Fawn tag that says “Define Naughty!” with my Lawn Fawn Peppermint twine.

Here is the first card:

For the second card, I didn’t want to use traditional Christmas colors. I colored my cat image with light grays and pink Copic markers. I used a patterned paper from Pinkfresh Studio 6×6 paper pad to die-cut the front panel of my card.

Using my blending foam, I distressed my white card stock with Spun Sugar distressed ink and blended it until the colors matched the pink twine. I die-cut the sentiment using Kat Scrappiness Happy Holidays Script die. I LOVE THIS DIE! It cuts like butter! I then adhered all of my pieces to the front panel of my card using my liquid adhesive. I finished the design with my pink and gold twine, and White Diamonds Sequins by Kat Scrappiness. I think the card turned out simple yet classy!

I hope you like both cards and got inspired today. I promise to have a process video for my next design team project.

I have listed and linked all the supplies that I have used below in case you’re interested to purchase them.

Have an amazing day!
