Jeanne Streiff is here today sharing a couple cards for the hop. 

 

My first card uses E8612 Comfort CocoaB8613 Comforting Cocoa and CC027 Cover-a-Card Flourishes

I stamped the background with Cover-a-Card Flourishes. Comfort Cocoa was stamped onto white cardstock, colored with markers and then cut out. and added to the scallop mat.

I made a little flag with the sentiment and attached it to the card.

My next card uses CL774 Coffee to Go, DIE556-J Coffee to Go Dies,  CL775 Cup of Sweet Succulents and DIE567-ZZ Cup of Sweet Succulents Dies

I made a washy background with ink and then stamped the cup from Coffee to Go in matching inks. I then die cut the cup with the matching dies. I added a stamped and die cut a succulent from  Cup of Sweet Succulents and added it to the cup. The sentiment is also from the Cup of Sweet Succulents set.

Happiness by Jenny Gropp

Fun card from Jenny Gropp using  C8728 Happiness and E8723 Fun Friends!

 
I adore the silhouette stamps and this one is such a sweet and happy image! My shiny and sparkly is the metallic thread I used around the edges.
 You can see the Copics I used here. I pierced holes around the edges, using a template to keep them even.... well somewhat even, lol! I used this fun metallic thread to stitch, yes HAND STITCH around the edge. It does take a little longer and usually I'm always looking for a short cut when crafting. But most of the time I'm watching Netflix on my ipad when I'm in the craft room, so I don't mind it taking a little extra time if I am watching some TV.
All of the layers were made using Perfect Layer Rulers, no nesties.. just simple straight layers on this one. I tied a little bow with the copper thread and glued it in the corner. I used a Viva Copper pen to add tiny little copper pearl centers on the flowers in the image. A few glittery pearls in the lower left corner to finish it off.
 
Have a great day!
 

 


Merry Christmas by Jenny Gropp

We have a beautiful card today from Jenny Gropp using With Love #C9501, Christmas Tag Dies #DIE223-Z, Holly Cake #E16044
 
 
 
 
 I wanted to keep the Holly Cake white. To make that white stand out I added the blue in the background to help make it pop!
 
 
 Here are the Copics I used to color the rest of the image. I chose my colors based on the printed word paper in the background.
 
 
I added foam tape in between the layers for dimension. I used a Clear Wink of Stella on the white area of the cake.... It just doesn't show in the pictures. It looks sugary and sparkly in person! On the bottom edge I used just the edge of a Christmas Tag Die, cutting it in white as well and piecing the white letters back in. I also added red Swarovski crystals over the red berries for a little bling!
 
 
Here's the inside with a simple With Love sentiment. I used up the remaining paper to complete the inside. Finished card is an A2.
 
Have a great day!
 

Thankful by Dina Kowal

We have a beautiful project from Dina Kowal today!

Dina used Pumpkin Pair, CAC Vines Vertical, Thankful & Thank You for Thinking.

I watercolored the pumpkins using Distress Markers, and stamped a few background  images with the marker ink from my palette.

The card is a Pop-Up Book Card, and in general, foldy cards hate me... but this one was surprisingly friendly. Inside the card there are just 2 cut lines, and the score lines were easy to follow.

Once it's all folded in the right directions, the center section looks like an open book.


Have a great day!


Thanks For All You Do by Dina Kowal

We have a pretty fall card from Dina Kowal to share today using Bird Die set

Leafy Branch Die and the Spring Medley clear set.

I wanted to test out my new Kemper Spatter Brush so I used it to create this inky background for an inlaid scene.

The background has a fine shimmer over it, from a layer of copper and bronze PanPastels. I used Turquoise Inka Gold on the bird die cut.

Have a great day!
