You Warm My Heart

I woke up this morning to a winter wonderland! I guess it was time for snow since it’s already mid January. I am fortunate to have the day off, so I thought I’d join in some challenge fun.

My card features the following products:

Image: Hello Bluebird Autumn Gatherings

Sentiment: Hello Bluebird Cocoa Party

Copic Markers: R30, C02, C01, YR15, YR24, YR27, E70, E71, E74

A variety of snowflake dies from my stash

I’m entering this card in the Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge and Freshly Made Sketches #518 Challenge. I think entering challenges helps stretch my creativity. Do you enter challenges? I hope so!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you stay warm and healthy!

Hugs,

Mary

National Tea Day

Happy National Tea Day! Are you a tea drinker? I mostly drink coffee, but I do enjoy a chai tea every once and a while.

This is the project I created in honor of National Tea Day:

For my card, I used the following products:

Sentiment: Honey Bee Hug in a Mug stamps and dies

Image: Honey Bee Mugs and Kisses dies

Patterned Paper: GinaK Blizzard paper and Lawn Fawn Hello Sunshine Remix/Oh Happy Day

Ink: GinaK Soft Stone and Ranger Distress Oxide in Peacock Feathers

This card is pretty straightforward – it was just a lot of die cutting and glueing!

Though I’m not a regular tea-drinker, I do enjoy chai flavored treats! Here’s a yummy, tea-inspired recipe, Chai Spice Monkey Bread from All Recipes. It’s soooo good!

I hope you are having a tea-riffic day!

Peppermint Mocha Season

I had so much fun creating this card for the Coffee Loving Cardmaker’s Fall/Winter blog hop!

My entry

I started by stamping this adorable image from Stamplorations recent release with Momento Tuxedo Black ink. Then, I used my Copic markers to color it. I really enjoyed creating my mocha swirl inside the cup! Since I don’t have dies, I needed to fussy cut my colored image. My background was created by die cutting a tan piece of cardstock with Lawn Fawn’s Quilted Backdrop and adhered that to my card base. I added foam tape to the back of my cup image to give my card some dimension. Lastly, I added sparkly washi tape to add some more detail to my card.

I think I am ready for Peppermint Mocha season! How about you?

A Rose for Mom

It’s time to start thinking about how we can honor the Mother’s in our lives. My mom loved roses and she would have loved the projects I made with this new stamp set from Divinity Designs.

I was fortunate to be a guest designer for Divinity Designs this month. I really fell in love with this new set – My World Stamp/Die Duo. It has the perfect sentiments for creating Mother’s Day projects.

Here are a couple of cards I created using this new stamp and die set.

I also thought it would be fun to create a Mother’s Day themed Timeless Tote.

I decided to use glitter paste and the new Rose Mixed Media Stencil on the front pocket to add some sparkle and texture.

This pocket is the perfect size to hold a gift card! Inside the tote I placed a small pack of tissues and a small hand sanitizer. We can’t have too much of that these days!

Happy Mother’s Day!
