Coffee Lovers Bloghop!

Happy National Coffee Day! :D I'm joining along in the Coffee Lovers Bloghop today! Yay! 

I found out last night I had no coffee related stamps (that I know of, at least! ;) ) so I decided to hand cut out a mug and a little plate to put under it. :) I used some lovely Studio Calico patterned paper to cut them out of. 

I love coffee. I don't have it every day, or even every week...I don't remember when I started drinking it either. 
But one of the reasons I don't have it too often is because the caffeine in it makes me go off-the-walls-crazy! If you ask my family they would surely confirm this. ;) I could get decaf but it never really occurs to me. It kinda defeats the point for me, coffee without caffeine? No way. :P 

I do love Starbucks coffee. Totally my fave. It's amazing and soooooo good! :D 

Okay well later I'm gonna go around and look at all the other entries in the hop, but that's all for me here today! 

Jesus saves!

Hot Air Balloons and Polka Dots

I love hot air balloons. Something about how adorable and tiny they seem on the horizon. Hehe. :) Anyways, I'm here with a card that has a couple hot air balloons on it! I've had this one for awhile. I think it was a submission reject, but I love it SO much I couldn't resist sharing! Here ya go! 

To make this I inked the front of the card, going from a light-ish red to a light yellow. I <3 inking hehe...tons of fun! I also stamped the balloon outlines onto the inked base. 

For the balloons and clouds I stenciled a polka-dot pattern onto them, using the same colors as I did for the balloons. I cut out the balloons + clouds (not the most fun thing to do, but hey, totally worth the effort!) then adhered them to the card base. To finish it off I stamped a sentiment. :) 

'Tis all for me today! 
I will be back tomorrow though! 

Until then!

Runway Inspired Challenge #68

So the current Runway Inspired Challenge. Yeah. The inspiration was just too good to resist. So I had to create a card for it. Totally inspired by the colors and shapes in the shoe that was the inspiration. (photo at the bottom of the post) 

I stamped the diamonds and a sentiment then threw in some lovely peach-colored enamel dots. :) 

Have a lovely weekend!

Watercolor City

Hello again my followers! I've got a card to share with you! 

Hehe my stamping isn't the best but that's okay I guess. :)

I did a little bit of masking for the Empire State Building, and stamped the watercolor strokes all around it, then I stamped the other buildings on top of the stamped watercolors. I also threw in a sentiment! 

I'm coming back from Cape Cod on Friday...time went so fast! I can't believe it's Tuesday already! 

Hope you all are doing good! I love it here but am looking forward to being able to go back and craft again. I found enamel dots at the Joanns here and I bought about 4 packages of them hehehe I cannot wait to use them!

Hey! So I'm actually blogging on vacation! I have a bunch of photos of cards I took before I left so I have a ton of stuff to blog. ;) Today I've got a card full of a ton of triangles! 

This was a super fun one to make (aren't they all though? ;) )

I stenciled the blue triangles then stamped the sentiment. 

Well, that's about it for today! 
I'm having a lovely vacation in Cape Cod! Today I'm going to the beach again and going shopping!
