You're the cream in my coffee

 Another card using Newton Loves Coffee! I love this sentiment for thank you cards, "You're the cream in my coffee!"


The coffee cups were colored in using Perfect Pearls Powder mixed with a small amount of water. I used a paint brush to "watercolor" the cardstock. The higher the ratio of powder, the more shimmer you get in the final look, I love it!


This card is number 1059 in the hop.

My cup runneth over


I'm loving this technique using perfect pearl powder and a bit of water to watercolor! It leaves such a shimmer on the cardstock.

Just to let you know, I didn't use any fancy cardstock or watercolor paper either. This is just a mixed cardstock pack that was on sale at Joann's. I heat embossed the image first using clear ink onto gray cardstock. The image was so delicate so I purposely went outside the lines a bit to add more color.

Newton Loves Coffee


Newton's Nook stamps are so darling! I love this one of Newton hugging the latte cup. To get the shiny iridescent look on the cup, I mixed perfect pearls powder with a bit of water and just painted it in!

Perk up soon!


I'm running low on get well soon cards and thought this hop was a great opportunity to make a few more! For my coffee loving friends, I loved this sentiment "Hope you perk up soon."

Remember to add a piece of craft foam on top of your card when mailing if it contains embellishments. I have found this protects them from falling off and greatly reduces the chance of the postal service tearing the envelope in transit. (I just buy a pack from Dollar Tree or Hobby Lobby when it's on sale and it lasts quite a while!)

I just adore the folding technique for this card! It's call the W fold and I learned it from Lisa's Stamp Studio video! You should try it because it was quite easy after I  made my first few cards.

The "thankful" stamp is from Gerda Steiner Designs "Peekin Pumpkin Kitty" set.

More beautiful copper foil cardstock from Recollections!

 When it's opened, the W fold sticks out with 4 cute panels on it! The kitten with the latte cup is from Newton's Nook and the mug with thanks sentiment is from an oldie but goodie Fiskar's stamp set.

 This card is number 841 in the hop.

Your Kindness Warms My Heart



Yay, my favorite blog hop! Well, let's be honest, the only blog hop I participate! :)

I'm a little late starting this time, the official start date was Friday November 6th, but better latte than never! 

In love with this Recollections copper foil cardstock I found at Michael's! (Yes they have rose gold, gold, silver and other colors too!)


This paper pad is also from Michael's. It's a Recollections Pumpkin Spice paper pad that was in their "Hot Buy" section last Fall.

And a little something on the inside.  This card is number 386 in the bloghop.
