Fall 2017 Coffee Lovers Bloghop

I'm quite late to the Fall Coffer Lovers Bloghop!
Here's my first entry- which will be in the high 800's! WOW!
 
 
Altenew & Concord & 9th stamps using the current The Heart Desires challenge!
I used some watercolor for the colors & anchored the panel with some glitter washi- it looks very fall-ish to me!
A big shout-out to ~amy~ & the Coffee Loving Crew- what fabulous inspiration!
 
Don't miss the Challenge or the sale at The Heart Desires!
 

The Heart Desires Mid-Challenge 16

We are halfway through this month's challenge already at The Heart Desires
Here's a reminder of the great inspiration:


And here's my take:


A whole lotta of Concord & 9th! 
I've stamped the Concord & 9th Tree Ring in Versafine Sepia Ink, then using the same ink I stamped the sentiment and splatters from Hello Lovely. Wouldn't the sentiments from Give Thanks be perfect too?
Those leaves!!! Gah!
I was trying to incorporate all of the colors and that fall feel in the inspiration so I used my zigs on Bristol paper and the Layering Leaves Dies. I really dig how it turned out!
A few sequins would have been great, but I still haven't uncovered them. I suspect they may be packed until the house is built!
Hope you can find some time to join us this month at The Heart Desires!

Curtain Call Challenge Guest Designer

I'm playing along today with the Curtain Call Challenge- look at this fun inspiration:


Here's my take:


I've put some watercolor to use on the front panel, then die cut with the Memory Box Tessatina Border die. I watercolored a wash on the cardbase and attached my top layer. A lovely sentiment from Lil' Inkers Paint Your Canvas set is heat embossed with white powder & some watercolor splashes finish it. Truth be told I would love to add some sequins- but they are packed away somewhere!!

Thank you so much for inviting me to play along with the Curtain Call Challenge!

The Heart Desires Challenge #16

I'm here today playing along with a new challenge at The Heart Desires!

Here is the fabulous fall inspiration:


Here's my take:


I adore this sweet Neat and Tangled set, My Favorite Nut! I've stamped the image with Versafine sepia ink on Bristol paper and used my zigs to color. 
I've layered Gina Marie dies for my focal panel: Scalloped Stitched Rectangle Dies and Nested Scalloped Stitched Rectangles- I think it made for a fun accent!
I hope you will be able to join us at The Heart Desires!
