Life Happens Coffee Helps Card by Amy K.

Hi everyone!  Amy K. here sharing a card using the adorable Cup of Joy set.  This set comes in the Cup of Joy Bundle or separately.  Let me just tell you that having the dies for this set is a must in my opinion!  I wanted to show how this set and it's sentiments could be customized.

I started my card with a layout from a current sketch challenge blog.  Sometimes this just sparks the inspiration!  To begin, I Copic colored the coffee cup and die cut with the Cup of Joy Die Set.  Next, the "Hello" word was done by diecutting "Hello", from Find the Beauty Die Set, several times with black cardstock and layering together for dimension.

I wanted my sentiment to use the "life happens" from How Have You Bean?  To do this, I had to selectively ink up the top portion with Versamark and white heat emboss onto a thin strip of black cardstock.  To finish my sentiment, I continued with the rest, "coffee helps" on the inside of my card.

To tie in the sketch challenge, I layered gingham paper onto kraft cardstock and added it to a top folding white notecard.  I love the crisp white edges.  My coffee cup and sentiments were added to finish the layout. 

I hope you enjoyed today's post. Make sure to click through the other projects linked below using Cup of Joy.

Thanks for Hopping By Card by Holly

Hi everyone! It’s Holly here today and I have a fun card using the new Bunny Hugs set and a sentiment from Hoppy Easter.

I started out with a piece of watercolor paper that was on my desk and it had a partial background on it from a previous project and I thought it would work perfectly for grass. So I die cut the panel using the large rectangle form the Find the Beauty Die Set. Then I die cut a piece of green pattern paper using the same die and adhered them to a soft yellow card base.

Then I stamped the bunny image from Bunny Hugs onto a piece of white card stock and colored him in with Copics. I stamped the flowers form the same set in several shades of pigment ink. Then I cut everything out with my scissors and adhered then to the panel using some foam tape. I stamped the sentiment from Hoppy Easter onto the lower corner with some black ink and I added a few green enamel dots for an extra pop of green. Love this!!! Have you picked up your favorites from the shop yet?

Thanks for stopping by today!

Hi friends!  It's Laurie here, bringing you the fifth and final day of the Homemade with Love series!  I love making handmade items to give away to friends and loved ones!  I was thrilled about this week's series because it's been far too long since I've taken time to do anything like this!

I have a friend that loves to take photos, and is actually very good at it!  She is always taking pictures of my kids and gifting them to me.  I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to do a little something for her!

I remembered that I had an unfinished photo frame in my stash and couldn't wait to dress it up for her!  I started by painting the entire frame with white acrylic paint.

Using the Find the Beauty Die Set, I die cut lots of felt flowers.  I love how bright and fresh the colors look together!  I die cut a lot of little circles, creating a polka dotted look. For embellishment, I stitched coordinating buttons onto each flower.

Thanks so much for joining me here today! If you’ve missed any of the posts, make sure to go back and check them out!
