Thankful - 2017 Fall COFFEE LOVER'S BLOG HOP

Tuesday, September 19, 2017

Hello everyone!

I'm here again sharing another coffee card for the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop .  Oh my, I love this stamp by Unity Stamps which is called "Fall to Go"!  When I saw it, I just had to have it.  I colored the image with copics, die cut it out with a rectangle die.  The sentiment that came with the stamp set says "Thankful, Grateful, Blessed", but I only used the Thankful sentiment.  If you have not had a chance to play along with the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, you really should.  It is so much fun and there are some very creative cards.


Thank you for stopping by and please come back again soon!

Joy Clair and Rinea

Tuesday, September 19, 2017

Hello everyone!

I am here with Joy Clair and back with Rinea foils.   If you missed my earlier post this month, we are featuring Rinea foils the whole month!  If you have not seen all the beautiful colors or know about Rinea foils, check out their bog to see the  beautiful creations you can do with their foils.  I am featuring one of the most recent new background stamps called Ugly Sweater Background Builder by Joy Clair.   I think this card I created today is adorable!  I cut the hat image from a free SVG or PDF file here

Are you ready for the Christmas holiday?  Have you started on making your Holiday cards?  Hop over to the Joy Clair blog and there is plenty of inspiration for you to get started.




Here is how I created my card:

1.  I cut the hat shape from a free SVG file from card stock by Claire Brennan which can be found here,
2.  I then used the Rinea violet foil and cut the rim and the ball of the hat from the free SVG file,
3.  I then used Versamark and stamped the different stamps from the Joy Clair Ugly Sweater Background Builder stamp set,
4.  I then used white embossing powder and heat set it on the hat,
5.  The rim, I embossed the Rinea violet foil with an embossing folder, I added this to the bottom of the hat and added the circle to the top of the hat with adhesive,
6.  I finished off the card by adding the "Merry Christmas" from one of the stamp sets from the Ugly Sweater Background Builder.

I really enjoyed making this card, I hope I have given you some inspiration to start your Holiday cards. 

If you have not had a chance to join the "anything goes" challenge, please take a minute and join.  Joy Clair will be giving away one $25 gift card to the Joy Clair Store, randomly selected to give everyone a chance to win.

You Had Me at Coffee!

Monday, September 18, 2017


Hello everyone!


I am back with another coffee card for the Fall Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!  I love making coffee cards, they are so much fun and a coffee cup looks so nice on a card.  Not to mention, I love drinking a nice cup of coffee in the mornings. 

I am using the newest release sets by Joy Clair, who is a Super Sponsor for the Coffee Hop, called Christmas Coffee and the sentiment is from Coffee Quotes.  Both of these sets are so versatile!  The Christmas set has images for Christmas or you can just use it for everyday!  Not to mention the Coffee Quotes, you can use these sentiments alone or add them to a coffee cup as I did.  I used my scan and cut to cut the coffee cup out, and colored it with copics.  I added the sentiment to the embossed part of my card with foam tape.  Very simple and clean card!  Oh I forgot to mention, if you love these sets that I am showing you today, they are both on sale!  All coffee related stamps on Joy Clair are on sale until Friday.  So hop on over to the store and  get the stamps you love!
