Grande Hugs

Hey y'all!
Happy Sunday, hope all is well?!...


I've been taking easy today, enjoying the nice weather and doing a little bit of crafting. :) I'm swinging in to share a card I made for the current Paper Smooches Challenge. If you didn't see or hear about it yet, they are having a DT call as well. Fun, right?!...


I made a little bit of a longer card than usual but I wanted to capture all of the 'rainbow', so longer it was. For my background rainbow I simply did some watercoloring on watercolor paper. Then I used the PS Pattern Builder die set to make the 'dashes/lines' using white cardstock. After I adhered it to my dried watercolor panel. To finish things off, I used the PS Cuppa Sunshine dies for my cup. Which I choose to just have it be white on white and layered the top piece twice. Then added a sentiment using the PS Caffeinated Two stamp set and a touch of burlap twine. Sweet, yeah?!...


Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a great day and see you soon!

A little festive bee

Hey y'all!
Happy Monday, hope your week is starting off right?!...



I'm swinging in tonight (it's about 10:00 pm here) to share another card I made for the Coffee Lover's Fall/Winter Blog Hop. :)


Who doesn't love a little festive bee?!...
I thought I should change up things a bit, I don't think I've seen anyone make a festive bee yet?...So I gave him a little red and green sweater. Along with some green mittens and red antennas. And a touch of white for the wings and face. Once I was done coloring my bee, I then added a touch of white around him by doing some ink blending. Simple, yeah?!...

Well, that's all for me.
I've been making rounds of hopping and commenting. Which is a big thing for me because I missed the last couple times. So I'm hoping I'll make it all the way through. Even if it takes me until after things end. ;)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a great week and see you soon!

I (heart) coffee

Hey y'all!
Happy Friday and Happy November 1st! Hope all is well?!...

*Note: For my AJVD new release/coffee post, please scroll down.

I'm swinging back in today to share a card I made for the Coffee Lover's Fall/Winter Blog Hop!


Before Craftin' Desert Divas closed I was lucky enough to pick up a few sets, so what better timing than the Coffee Lover's blog hop to put some of them to use! ;)


I kept things nice and simple. I did a little stamping and coloring with colored pencils. After, I masked my image and then did a little ink blending with a blue ink. Then added a sentiment to finish things off. Easy peasy, right?!...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a great day and see you soon!

AJVD and WOW! Collaboration Hop

Hey y'all!

Today, is a exciting and fun day!! I'm swinging in to share a couple cards for the AJVD and WOW! collaboration hop!!


You should have came from the talented Jenny Colacicco's blog. If you haven't hopped along yet, you'll want to be sure to start from the beginning! Lot's of fun going on! ;)


So without further ado, here are my cards...


A simple Fall themed card. I made a little stencil out of AJVD leaves & Petals die set and the embossed them in two different WOW! embossing glitters, Vintage Peacock and Turkish Nights . After, I used a sentiment from AJVD Autumn Pumpkin stamp set and stamped it on my card using black ink. Then I used the AJVD Headline Type Alphabet die set to spell 'FALL' and used WOW! Sparkles in  Stroke of Midnight and Celebration .


Keeping with simple, for my second card I used AJVD Scattered Snow builder background stamp. Which I embossed it in Metallic Gold Rich Pale using WOW! metallic embossing powder. Next, I used AJVD Merry Mistletoe die set and added WOW! embossing glitter in Carousel here and there on the mistletoe. Once done, I tied my little bundle of mistletoe together with some burlap twine and then added it to my card. To finish things off, I used AJVD Headline Type Alphabet die set to spell 'HOLIDAY'.

And did I mention there are a couple prizes that can be won?!!...There's a $25 WOW! Embossing Powder gift card and a $25 A Jillian Vance Design gift card up for grabs! :) Please be sure to leave your comments on each DT blog post (including WOW!
