Holiday wishes


I feel card makers sometimes skip seasons altogether. Last week, I was in full summer mode for the coffee lovers blog hop; now, I am diving back into Christmas cards! This card is for Christina Hor's Cards for Little Hearts card drive.


The patterned paper with the adorable reindeer is from Michaels. The sentiment is from Hero Arts' Layering Christmas Tree. Overall, a pretty easy-peasy card.

Books and coffee

Today is the last day for the 2017 summer coffee lovers blog hop; what is more summery than a stack of books waiting to be read?


Inspired by this old Mojo Monday sketch (which apparently was one of Julee's original sketches!):

The image is from Blackberry Jelly's little workshop. Love the clean lines. I did some digital masking to shorten the book stack.

Tea bag pull tab card

This is my card #5 to the 2017 summer coffee lovers blog hop - a personal record!


Where's the coffee / tea, you ask?
 

Under the top layer, I hid a Stash tea bag that is attached to a pull tab. I thought this would be a fun and interactive take on the clean design (which is a CASE of this card).

I used two layers of foam tape in a C-shape around the tea bag to form the slider area, and taped the tab to the tea bag. Happy day and enjoy!

White on white

This is my card #4 for the 2017 summer coffee lovers blog hop, which ties my previous personal record.


This is my first time to play at Addicted to CAS! This week's code word is "white on white", which speaks "summer" to me; I guess I'm thinking of wearing white in the summer? 😁

I covered the SSS falling hearts stencil with embossing paste, die-cut the window, and embossed a Cuttlebug small teacup on acetate to fill the space. Behind the window, I've clear embossed "thank you" six times (like this card).



I recently got the MFT rectangle peek-a-boo window die-namics and I may be slightly in love with it, as it's made an appearance in three out of my last four cards.

2017 Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop #3

The week-long coffee lovers blog hop has the effect of pushing me to work faster on cards! Sometimes, it takes me a week (or more!) to put a card together because I hum and haw on this piece of paper versus that shade of colour. Now, it's a card a day; I do hope it's not at the expense of quality...

Here is my card #3 to the hop. I was thinking along the lines of tea sippin' while watching a beautiful sunset:


This card features the Verve digi Rise and Shine, which Julee released during the 2017 spring CLBH. I love it! "Sending you a cup of happiness" (from YNS' Cup of Happiness) is what I've put on the inside.

I used a recent Mojo Monday sketch. I'm going to miss those sketches...
