Spring Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!

Hey y'all! Shelly, here!
Happy Friday!!

Today is the day...the Spring Coffee Lover's Blog Hop has officially started! Yay! If you haven't participated in any of these hops before, you certainly need to check it out! Especially if you love coffee/cocoa/tea! :)

So here's what I came up with...

Coffee, Coffee, Coffee!

I kept things simple. I added my coffee stains (using the But First Coffee stamp set) with a minty green ink, for a 'springtime' pop of color. Then added my 'coffee coffee coffee' (using the Simply Said: Pot Head stamp set) with a brown ink. After, I used my panel with the Stitched Dot Rectangle die.

Once done, I used some fun and simple patterned paper for my background and then added my die cut panel over it. To finish things off, I added some twine. Easy peasy, right?!...

Planner Page Mark by Yolie

Hello and welcome, this is Yolie. Today I am sharing how I use the new Minnie Pearl Bookmark die in my DCWV planner.

I first die cut the bookmark and then stamped with the coordinating Be Still Bookmark Stamp.  I used the Stamp Perfect to help with the placement of the stamp.

I used a pigment ink in grape and tied a bit of ribbon on top of the bookmark.  I then punched the holes on the bookmark and added it to my planner.  I am will be using the backside as a journaling spot.

I then layered a few strips of washi tape on the upper right side of my monthly page and glued the die cut word Blessed.

The Bookmark stamps are perfect for Bible journaling too.  I look forward in sharing more of my planner pages next week.
Thank you for visiting and enjoy your day.

he is risen...

Hello!!  Rosemary here with an Easter card that I made using the beautiful Simply Said: He is Risen stamp set and the newly released Three Calvary Crosses die.
The minute I saw the Three Calvary Crosses die I knew I had to have it.  It is so beautiful!!! I die cut it from gold glitter cardstock and twice from white cardstock.  The were stacked and adhered together using spray adhesive.  The die was also cut from some masking paper, laid it on a white cardstock panel and then carefully inked up the area around the mask with Ranger's Squeezed Lemonade.  Once I liked how the background looked I removed the mask and then stamped the sentiment.  The panel was then die cut with the third largest Stitched Dot Rectangle die and the crosses adhered in place with spray adhesive.  A second panel of gold glitter cardstock was die cut with the largest Stitched Dot Rectangle die as a mat for the main panel.  Adhered everything to a white cardstock base.  Love the Three Calvary Crosses die and can't wait to make something else with it!

Jesus and Coffee

Hello everyone... Helen is here today. Spring is officially here according to the calendar. I am so looking forward to see more colorful flowers blooming this Spring.

Today, I have a coffee card to share with you that I created with Simply Said: Coffee & Jesus stamp set. This stamp set talks loud about me, I cannot live without my Lord Jesus and coffee. 

My card is inspired by the CASEing DT Link Up Party #11 over Coffee Lovers Blog Hop this month:

I created the background with watercolor paint and added some splatters paint on it for extra texture. Then I die cut it with stitched rectangle dies. I stamped the sentiment with archival black ink. Then I stamped again the flower, colored it with glitter gel pen, fussy cut it, and added on the cup with 3D foam tape.

I added the backround panel on the card with adhesive. Then I added a black frame that I die cut using 2 rectangles dies and added it on the card with 3D foam tape. I finished the card with some twine.

There are more Coffee Collection at the store that you will love! And here's the preview of the stamp I use on the card today:

You Rock Card

AJVD, Kecia Waters, Distress Crayons, resist, watercolor, guitar, bass
Seems like when I see someone do something great, a catch phrase of mine is "You Rock".  Now I have a card to give to someone the next time I think someone rocks, lol.  Kecia Waters on the blog today.

To make this card, I used some oldies but goodies from A Jillian Vance Design and tried to make a trendy card.  I started by stamping the AJVD "Musical Notes Background Builder" onto Ranger watercolor paper with Versamark Watermark.  I then added white embossing powder and heat embossed for a white on white look.

I then used Distress Crayons to add the rainbow of color onto the background.  I scribbled various crayons onto some scraps of acetate and activated with water.  I simply smooched the acetate onto the panel, somewhat controlling where each of the color went.  I set aside this panel and let dry.

Using the AJVD "Music Speaks Stamp and Die Set", I stamped the bass and the guitar onto X-Press It cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I colored the bass with Copic markers.  I decided to leave the guitar white.  I used the dies provided in the set to cut around both images.  

Using the pennant flag die from the AJVD "Mini Bag Mega Die Set", I cut a flag with black cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment, included in the "Music Speaks Stamp and Die Set" with white pigment ink.  I added white embossing powder to the sentiment and heat set.

I arranged all of the elements onto the card panel, and added a few random sequins for interest.

AJVD Supplies:
Musical Notes Background Builder

Other Supplies:
Ranger watercolor paper, X-Press It cardstock, black cardstock, Copic markers, Distress Crayons, Memento Tuxedo Black, white pigment ink, Versafine Watermark, white embossing powder, miscellaneous sequins

Thanks for visiting the AJVD blog today!  Here's to a rockin' good week!
