STAMPlorations Giving Thanks Blog Hop

STAMPlorations Giving Thanks Blog Hop
It's time for the third annual Giving Thanks Blog Hop & Wishlist Linky Party with STAMPlorations!  We're focusing on gratitude themed cards and using the STAMPlorations product line.  Full details can be found on the STAMPlorations blog. You should have arrived here from Deepti's blog! For my design, I used a STAMPlorations tag die for my sentiment focused design.  I started with some washi tape I had in my stash and adhered three lines of it to the lower portion of the card base.  I then die cut the tag using .  I then stamped the STAMPlorations Thy Goodness sentiment in black ink on a piece of kraft cardstock and popped it up on the tag using foam adhesive.  I applied a dot of gold Stickles to the sun in the upper right corner. I finished the design by popping up the assembled tag on the card base.  That's it!  A clean and simple gratitude of design! Now it's time to head on over to Carol's blog as you continue on the hop!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

2016 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

2016 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop
Happy Friday!  I had a little extra craft time yesterday and made another card for the oh-so-fun Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop with the help of a little of that creative fuel called coffee!  It seems like I've been drinking more of it the last couple weeks as winter weather finally settles in around me! Winter 2016 Blog Hop I've been itching to use the fantastic Sip on This set from Clear & Simple Stamps!  I stamped the different sections of the cup in red and green and then added some sparkle with a Clear Wink of Stella Brush Marker.  The popped up circle is die cut using a Nestabilities circle die and stenciled with green ink using The Crafter's Workshop Mini Microbial Stencil.  The coffee cup is popped up right next to the circle with a little thicker foam dot to make it slightly higher.  The fun sentiment is also from the Sip on This set and is stamped in black.  I added some simple gold star and clear circle sequins as embellishments.  I am in love with this stamp set and, now that I've finally inked it up, I can't wait to brainstorm for more coffee themed designs! Clear and Simple Stamps Only a few more hours to link up to the 2016 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  I'm ready to start hopping myself, so need to grab some decaf this evening and go check out some of the inspiration in the hop's gallery!  Can't wait! Have a wonderful weekend!Continue Reading...
