Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

 I am definitely going with a record of 3 posts in one day.  I made another card for the Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop.

For this card I took a piece of 4" x 5 1/4" vanilla cardstock and stamped the various fall leaves from the Close To My  Heart fall leaf set.  I then stamped a couple coffee stamps from the coffee cup Papertrey Ink set.  The sentiment is from The Angel Company that is no longer in business.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure and check out the blog with all the fantastic sponsors and other creation people who have made a project for this hop.

Mystery Image #42

I am a day late in posting my card for our challenge this month.  Gosh, where does the time go? 
The image was selected by LJ this month and it is from the Stampin Up Countryside set.  I colored the image with my copic markers and developed my card.

Thanks LJ for a great challenge.

Prickley Pear Wheelbarrow Full of Pumpkins

Hello on this gorgeous fall like day.  Since today is Tuesday it is time for a post using Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps.  The leaves are just starting to turn here in Kansas and it is getting to be pumpkin time around here.  Have you noticed all the pumpkin flavored drinks available now?

For my card today I used the fun stamp set called Wheelbarrow Full of Pumpkins and Golden Pumpkin. I stamped these images on Neenah Classic Craft paper and then colored them with my copic markers.  I then added a few embellishments.

Be sure and check out the Prickley Pear blog and see what some of the other design team members created.

Coloring Virtuoso MFT Card

One of my favorite things to do is to color with my zig watercolor markers.  Coloring always brings me such peace and reminds me of my childhood where I could just sit for hours with my crayons and color.   I decided to enter this card in the 2017 Card Design Superstar contest.  They have 3 categories and this card was for the Coloring Virtuoso Category
I seem to always go for my favorite stamp set from My Favorite Things called Funky Flowers

I first stamped several of the flowers on a piece of 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" watercolor paper.  I also stamped the leaves and large flower on a piece of watercolor paper.  I then colored all the images with my zig watercolor markers (flowers - peach pink and yellow, leaves - mid green).  I then fussy cut the large flower and leaf bunches out.  I then cut a piece of pink cardstock at a diagonal to give it a different look.  For the sentiment, I used the Celebrate Your Special Day from LJD Birthday Greetings stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by to see my card and thanks also to My Favorite Things for having this wonderful contest.

Clean and Simple Funky Flowers

I have always been a fan of Clean and Simple cards.  I guess because the focus is directly on the object you have colored.  I decided to enter this card in the 2017 Card Design Superstar contest.  They have 3 categories and this card was for the Clean & Simple Genius category
For my card I pulled out one of my all time favorite floral sets from My Favorite Things called Funky Flowers
I colored the flower with my copic markers (V17, V15 & V12).  I then colored the leaves with my copic markers (YG17, YG13, YG11).  I outlined the flower and leaves with BG000 copic marker.   I then decided to use my Kind Thanks stamp for the sentiment.  I used my corner punch to cut each bottom corner and then put a navy gem in the center.  I also to a white pen to highlight the enter circle.

I loved how this card turned out and I love using my Funky flowers set.  Thanks so much for stopping by my blog.

Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop

Fall is my favorite time of year with the beautiful colors of the leaves, the fresh smell of fall and those delicious pumpkin flavored drinks.  How can you not love it.  I decided to make a card in honor of the Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop.
I recently had purchased this die set from Cottage Cutz called Build-A-Grapevine Wreath and decided I wanted to use it for the background.  I cut all the pieces out in various colors of card stock and started building my wreath.  I adhered this to a piece of designer paper from Echo Park The Story of Fall.  I then stamped out a coffee cup from the Prickley Pear Coffee Cup Clear Set.  I then took a piece of 1/2" vanilla cardstock and stamped blessings which is from a Paper Trey Ink set I had.  So a real combination of alot of different stamps but I loved the way it turned out.
