Love You A Latte Pieced Card

I had this Avery Elle set on my work table (I used a Happy Birthday sentiment stamp), and this card just had to play through.

The cups are paper pieced with Amy Tangerine On A Whim paper.

The background is dry embossed with the cup die (hard to see – I should have used an extra shim!).

Aloe Plants “Aloe!” Note Card

Took a break from the mother-in-law project today. I have 6 of 8 complete.

These Newton’s Nook aloe plants, with the “Aloe!” sentiment, gave me just the breath of fresh air I needed. I stamped and used the coordinating dies to make them more dimensional.

Rainbow Floral Wreath Hola Card

Another small, square card – just the way things are cropping for me right now.

For years, I have seen Laura Bassen and Jennifer McGuire make rainbow cards.

I finally took the time to TRY. (I really have something else I should be working on, so this is pure procrastination!)

Cute, right??

After I got the wreath stamped, I had a difficult time finding a sentiment to fit in the middle (this was my 4th try). Silly me, HOLA should have been my first choice since Offspring3 is traveling in a Spanish speaking country right now.  (Te amo, chica!!  😉  )

Supplies:  Stamps – Altenew, Technique Tuesday, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Grape, inks – Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Inks Abandoned Coral, Blueprint Sketch, Broken China, Candied Apple, Picked Raspberry, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron Wilted Violet, VersaFine Onyx Black, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.

Happy You’re My Friend Square Card

I colored this image with really bright markers last week, but today I left it just as a black and white card.

Still stunning!

Make Today Beautiful Card

My new Newton’s Nook stamp sets were still on my craft table (ready to be put away), when I pulled out my *never been used* Lawn Fawn sunray coverplate die.

I had a Reese’s “You got peanut butter in my chocolate”, “no, you got chocolate in my peanut butter” moment.

The cut sunrays were staring at me, and the “make today beautiful” sentiment jumped out.

I added a few sequins, just to make the sunrise glint.

YAY!

Happy Friday!
