Adorable Newton!

Card number 6 for my favorite blog hop!! #summerclh I started a 7th but might not get it finished in time.

Just adore this stamp set by Newton's Nook called "Newton Loves Coffee"!  I was in the mood to do a little paper piecing from my Doodlebug "Sugar Shoppe" paper pad. (Plus my sister's birthday is coming up and I think she'll love this card!)

Yes I used a lot of glossy accents lol! The cute spotted cup had to be shiny though!

I even coated the sentiment stamped square that says "a birthday brew for you!"

 The finishing whiskers for Newton! Hope you enjoyed this creation!

It's Been Oolong!

Another creation for my favorite blog hop!

I love this darling stamp from Sweet Stamp Shop called Oolong! Decided to play with watercolors and stamped this image in Staz On black ink on watercolor paper.

I wanted to play with shadows a bit and decided to put them in front of these cute images. LOVE how this one came out!

The hello cutout word die is from Walter and Winnie, the pretty paper is from a Craft smith paper pad...apologies I forget the name at the moment! Put a glitter gel on the sugar cubes too.

Attempted one with shadows behind the images, but didn't like the way it came out at all, so ended up covering it over with more blue. But that's how we learn! I will attempt these shadows again in the future. :)

Thank you for being so sweet!

 Another coffee-inspired creation for my favorite blog hop!

The cute paper is from Doodlebug's "Sugar Shoppe" 6x6" paper pad. I used Avery Elle's "Bonjour" stamp set for the macaroons and Fiskars "Latte Love" for the coffee mug.

 Just loved water-coloring this image! And the macaroons had to be glittered or have sparkly filling!

Using Leftovers

I decided to use some "leftovers" on my next card for the Summer Coffee Lovers blog hop!

I made these cute paper pieced latte cups for an older project and found one left! The colors matched the background scraps I had from my Craft smith "Sweet Soiree" paper pad.

The latte cup and greeting are from, you guessed it, Fiskars Latte Love! (one of my favorite go-to coffee stamp sets)

The greeting is stamped in Staz On Teal Blue ink. The background was distressed using Distress Mini pads Spun Sugar and Peacock Feathers.

Playing with Paper

Next card for this years Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

The latte cup and quote are both from Fiskars Latte Love stamp set. I stamped them using Staz On teal blue ink. The bow ties were cut from a piece of paper in this same paper pad.

 All the paper, including the cute little bow ties, are from Craft Smith's "Sweet Soiree" paper pad found at Michael's.

 Glossy accents were used on the bow ties and copper Stickles to make the small dash marks around the border.

Hope you enjoyed this card! Link up your own summer coffee/tea/cocoa themed creations here.  Sharing using #summerclh

The Start of this Summer's Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

This Summer's Coffee Lovers Blog Hop kicked off yesterday on June 17th and will run until June 24th!  As one of my all-time favorite online events, I had to create some cards!

For my first card, I pulled out a new stamp set called Layered Lily. 

For ink, I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink Mini Pads. Colors used include: Tattered Rose, Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Fired Brick, Squeezed Lemonade, Scattered Straw, Mustard Seed, Wild Honey and Orange Marmalade.

I like how the ink bled a little to create a pretty watercolor effect. May try another card using different inks!

This cute latte cup and the quote are from Fiskars Latte Love stamp set. And, of course, had to finish one lily with a couple drops of multi medium matte and micro fine stampendous gold glitter.
