Joy - Bugaboo new image / Catch the bug

Tuesday September 26, 2017
 
Welcome to New Release day at Bugaboo..

This is the New Image called "Teddy cocoa"  I used a Stampin Up die and cut the image out. I colored the image with copics and used some Wink of Stella on the cocoa, hat band and JOY.. I think this would be a cute card for a child.

I've missed our little chats!

Friday September 22, 2017
 
Well today is the last day of the Fall Coffee Lovers Challenge blog hop..
It went from Friday Sept. 15 to Friday Sept. 22..
 So this is the 8th card I made for the blog hop.
 
This is a favorite stamp set of mine from Art Impressions. I have used it a lot in the past for Birthdays.. But today it's just ladies sipping coffee and chatting. Cathing up on what's happin in their lives.. Looks like they are having a great conversation and being told quite a tale.. I used some Stampin up papers and left over Simon Says stitched leaves.  I colored the images with Copics.

You brighten my day

Thursday September 21, 2017
 
Wow this is day 7 of the Fall Coffee Lovers blog hop..
It's been fun creating my cards. Few I have loved and few not so much.. Maybe I hadn't had enough coffee that day when I created.. Any how this is another day and another card.
 
 This is my card. I took some dark gray card stock and dry embossed it. I then took some tanish card stock and my Stampin up stamps and dies and cut out the to go coffee cup and lid. I used Ranger inks to give some shading.
I found this awesome scrap dotted card stock so cut it out to fit as the cozy. I used Simon Says sentiment that has nothing to do with coffee but for my card it does. I added some of those left over Simons Says leaves I painted with Mission paints and touched up with Ranger. It needed something more so added the twine and more leaves. I won some gray bling dots from Close to my heart.. Aren't they pretty? and added them to the card.

Happy mail - Aud Sentiments #189

Thursday September 21 - October 2, 2017
 
Well we are really getting into some fall now. Grandkids / Great Grandkids are in school and getting all things figured out.. Hope you are enjoying a quiet house now and can get some crafting done... LOL  Well on to the challenge..
 
We have another two week challenge at
 Aud Sentiments #189.. Our theme is
 
2 word sentiment.. ONLY TWO WORDS..   and make sure you sentiment is where we can see it..
 
 
 
So this is my two (2) word card.. happy mail... I tell you this is the second card.. I stamped this card out and had it ready to layer and so I turned the card over and applied adhesive.. WELL when I turned it over my ink smeared.. it was a red hot mess.. I had to remake it..
 
I used Simon says stamps. I at first used Ranger ink.. WHICH STAYS WET LONGER!!!! so this card is with Stampin up ink. I then colored the envelopes with copics and added glossy accents to the hearts.
 
I thought it came out cute. I've had this stamp set for quite some time.. it came in one of the Simon month kit but didn't know what to do with it so I wanted to try using it now..  I laid out the envelopes till I got a nice display and stamped them so they looked like they were stacked. I added the hearts in various places.. It for sure is happy mail.
 
Hope you find time to play along and can head over to Aud Sentiments to see the DT creations.

It's day 6 of the Fall Coffee Lovers blog hop..
Are you playing along?? Are you having fun and seeing all the creative projects??
 
 
 This is my card. I knew in my mind what I wanted to create but I think I over did the background. I probably should of left the white embossed hearts off and just stayed with the coffee cups and leaves. Trial and error.. Funny how your mind says one thing and you hands do another.. Any how I stamped the Impress coffee cup and hearts and embossed in white. I then added some Ranger inks to my craft sheet and spritzed with water and smooshed my paper and dried and smooshed more till I got the effect I wanted. I then stamped with brown ink the Simon Says leaves (oh the hearts are Simon says also). I then black embossed the Tim Holtz crazy dog and food bowl which is now filled with COFFEE and glossy accents..  I colored the dog with Mission paints and the bowl with copics. I used a brown copic for the coffee cups coffee. The sentiment is from Dylusions and the cute dog is saying this before he's getting ready to drink the coffee.  I added some Stampin up leaves in the corner and fussy cut the coffee cup and added to the leaves base. I added a wooden red heart. I can just see this dog drinking the coffee and running around the house like a crazy dog he is..
