Thanks for Hopping By Card by Holly

Hi everyone! Itโ€™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!


Hoppy Easter Watercolor Card by Laurie C.

Hello everyone!!  Laurie Case here with a guest designer blog post!!  Let me first of all say "thank you" to the super sweet Nicole for having me!!  I am so excited to be here, you have no idea!  I am what you would call a "super fan" of Right at Home stamps and dies.  The designs are so unique, I'm just drawn to them.  Now let's have a look at what I created, shall we?

I used the Hoppy Easter stamp set to make an Easter card.  The bunnies in this set are adorable! I stamped all the images I wanted to use onto watercolour cardstock and used Distress Inks to colour them.  I blended Tumbled Glass Distress Ink onto another piece of watercolour cardstock then cut it out using the smallest stitched rectangle from the Find the Beauty Die Set.

I thought the sky needed a couple of clouds so I stamped, watercolored and fussy cut the clouds from the Banner Alphabet Add-On set.  After stamping my sentiment, I adhered all my fussy cut pieces using a combination of liquid and foam adhesive.  I added a scalloped strip of patterned paper along the bottom edge of the card to "finish off" the panel.  I popped the panel up with foam tape onto an A2 kraft cardbase.

Then came all the little details.  I added a few dots and stripes to the easter eggs, some Clear Wink of Stella to the clouds, the butterfly and the bunnies ears.  And of course, Glossy Accents to all the eggs and a few other little spots!!

Thank you for stopping by today!! I hope you enjoyed this sweet little card as much as I do!!

Coffee Lovers Blog Hop // Spring 2016

Hi Coffee Lovers!

It's time for the Spring edition of the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! I'm so excited that Amy asked me again to take part again as I love all things coffee-themed. Plus, it gave me an excuse to play with an awesome die from Memory Box. It's a win-win!

Coffee Lovers Blog Hop // Spring 2016 -

I started my card off by using this Memory Box die to cut out the pieces for my coffee cup. I used various colors of cardstock to this. For the yellow piece, I wanted to add some texture so I stamped it with my Grid Background stamp from my shop and I think it adds the perfect touch. I adhered all these pieces together and added a little red heart with some foam tape to tie it together.

For my center panel, I die-cut a piece of light gray cardstock with a stitched border. Along the bottom I adhered a piece of rainbow patterned paper with a curved edge to give my cup a place to "sit". I then adhered the finished cup with some foam tape. I wanted to add a little more detail to the cup so I used the little swirl from my Hoppy Easter stamp set (originally meant to be used as a trail from a butterfly!) to create some steam above the cup.

Next to my cup I stamped "today is a new day" which is from my Get Stuff Done stamp set. I love the sentiments in this set even though it was designed for planners. I think it works perfectly for this card. I added some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear sequins to finish it off! So cute and colorful!

I hope you love what I created! To celebrate today's hop I'm giving away a $20 gift certificate to my shop to one crafter who links up her creation to the Coffee Lovers Link-Up. If you want a chance to win, create a project inspired by spring, coffee, tea, or cocoa and link it up here. Winners will be announced soon.
