Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop- Take 3!

One last card for the Spring Coffee Lovers bloghop while the birthday cake cools!
Love that there are over 1000 entries already!!

Using that fabulous Latte Love set again from Lil Inkers. Colored it with zigs.
A vellum layer cut with Gina Marie die doesn't completely obscure the fun heart paper but allows for a black heat embossed sentiment to be clearly visible.
The card base is dry embossed, inked with versamark & perfect pearls dusted on top. 
A few sequins & burlap string finish it off!
A huge thank you to the fab Coffee loving card makers crew, and all the super sponsors!
Thanks so much for stopping by-
Happy hopping & coffee/tea/cocoa drinking!

Spring Coffee Lover's Hop Take 2

 Sneaking in another card for the Spring Coffee Lover's Bloghop!

I've used more Lil' Inker goodies today- Love this die set! The panel is cut with a Gina Marie die, and nested back into the back side of the paper. I stamped flowers from Altenew's Wildflower set onto the sleeve (colored with prisma pencils) and onto the solid panel then dusted with perfect pearls.
Very springy indeed!
I'm in awe of the number of fabulous coffee projects!!

Spring 2017 Coffee Lovers Bloghop

It's time!! The spring coffee lovers bloghop is here!
These hops are so much fun- cool to see all the inspiration! I know it's a ton of work, so a huge thanks to ~amy~ and crew!

I'm hoping to get more done, but my daughter's birthday is this week, we've been helping my parents move, and we are getting ready to move too.... I am so tired, coffee isn't even enough these days!!

I can't even tell you how lucky I felt to have won the Lil' Inkers Latte Love stamps & dies during the last hop- I remember seeing them & thinking they were perfect!! They are a super sponsor, so be sure to check them out!

I think the paper is authentique. The mug is stamped on bristol paper & colored with zigs. The sentiment is heat embossed, a bit of burlap string & some acrylic paint spatters finish it off.
I know I'm late to the party- and I also know I've got no delusions of catching up to Erin's number of entries- but hopefully I will be back!
Happy Hopping!

The Heart Desires Mid-challenge #10

 I'm back with some mid-challenge inspiration for you for the beautiful THD Challenge #10!
Take a look: 

So many beautiful choices to inspire you!
Here's what I came up with:

I've die cut a piece of vellum with Gina Marie Scalloped Stitched rectangle dies, then heat embossed the Neat & Tangled Hope Anchors stamp in gold. A few sequins from the Neat & Tangled Peacock mix add some interest. If you haven't seen this mix- it is YUMMY! So many fabulous colors and each color in several sizes!!

The vellum panel is machine stitched to the hexagon patterned paper (old basicgrey).
Still LOTS of time to play along- looking forward to seeing how you're inspired!

MIM #276: Kraft & Colored Pencil

Melissa shared a lovely MIM this week- she is always so inspiring!
I pulled out some older goodies & my prisma pencils & this is what I came up with:

Botanical blocks, BB: text & Through the Trees are the stamps used here. I also lightly embossed the card base with the guidelines embossing plate. PP from my stash & MS border punch.
Sorry for the poor pic- quite late here & I didn't pull out the lightbox!
Happy March & thanks for stopping by!

The Heart Desires Challenge #10

It's time for a new challenge at The Heart Desires!! It's been so fun to see how everyone has been inspired by the challenges so far- hope you can play along with us again for Challenge #10!
Here is the inspiration:

Isn't it amazing? 
Here's my take:

I know everyone is shocked that I used the Gina Marie Scalloped Stitched Nested Rectangle Dies, as well as the Gina Marie Scalloped Circle Frames Dies
I thought the Concord & 9th Map Love was the perfect set for this challenge! I've used Delicata golden glitz ink and heat embossed it gold on vellum paper. I stamped the earth image on the card base below. A few sequins finish it off!
You've got all month to join us!
