Coffee cup thank you

I am on a duo-card swing! After the night and day cards yesterday, today's theme is hot and cold:


The "warm tones" card is for the 2017 summer coffee lovers blog hop, but I thought it would be cool (heh) to contrast with a "cool tones" card. Not sure if the colours are coming through, but the "warm" card uses a patterned paper that gradates from red to orange to yellow, and the "cool" card goes from purple to blues.

The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn's So Much To Say. The coffee cup is a digi from Blackberry Jelly's digital stamps. Thank you! Finished with glossy accents and the SSS falling hearts stencil.

Meet... Brentwood!

The 2017 summer coffee lovers blog hop is ON!! Woot! This is my third hop and I am preparing myself for a week of crafting frenzy :)

Card #1:

Meet Brentwood! I love it when stamp characters have names. This digi is from jessicalynnoriginal. Thank you! It's my first time to colour Brentwood and he is just the sweetest. Here, he is having a staycation and drinking coffee all day and all night long.

Funny story about this card: I showed it to my husband and he particularly liked the morning version because he says Brentwood, being nocturnal, would definitely need coffee in the morning to stay awake :)

I know the hop is hopping like crazy, so I won't keep you. Thank you as always for stopping by!

Christmas chickies

This card is for the last Mojo Monday. I only discovered Mojo Monday this year, and I haven't participated in many challenges, but I always appreciate the sketches because they helped me learn so many variations on balanced layouts. Thank you Julee! I look in the archived sketches often!


Those cute chickies are from Your Next Stamps' Christmas Chickies, and the sentiment is from Hero Arts' Layering Christmas Tree. Layout and colours inspired by:
