Spring 2017 CLH - day 2

Happy Saturday morning,

Have you have your coffee yet?  I did, first thing.  :)

This is my card for the 2nd day of the 2017 Spring Coffee Lover's Bloghop.  I used the free digi stamp generously given out by Jessica Lynn especially for this blog hop.  Thanks so much Jessica!

I colored it with coloring pencils, die cut and adhere on a dry-embossed card base.  I tied everything by coloring the sentiment and the dry embossing with the same colors I used on the image.

I am having a little givaway of my own, I am giving away this card, leave me a comment on this post by March 31st, 11:59 pm EDT.  I will announce the randomly selected winner on April 3rd.

Let's Chat Over Coffee

I am delighted to play along the Spring Coffee Lovers' Bloghop 2017.  Without further ado here's my first card for the hop.

To create this card,  I first stamped and white embossed the sentiment and coffee beans (both from Altenew Coffee Love set) onto my Mocha card base (from the Hero Arts Earth Mixed Folded cards).

Next, with Hero Arts Coffee Cup Tag frame cut I die cut using pattern paper the cup, and white CS the lid.  Then I adhered three flowers I already have in my stash (made from before).  

Then I die cut the humming birds using Hero Arts Paper Layering Hummingbird Pair Fancy Dies, and colored with Twinkling H2O watercolors. The vellum steam are free hand cut.  

Lastly I adhere everything onto my card as shown.  I am quite pleased how it turn out, but not able to photograph the subtle shimmer on the birds.  Believe me it looks much better in real life.  Here's a little close up.

I am back adding cards to my Christmas cards stash.  Okay just the one today, but I am glad I didn't quit!  :D

Playing along Merry Monday Christmas Challenge #240 - Bells.

Although I do not own a bell image, I found an old canvas sticker by Imaginisce that I could use.  Ha!  Two birds one stone, my other New Year resolution is use up my existing collection of stuff!!  LOL

I stamped a small flower from the Winnie & Walter clear stamp - Hollie's Festive Florals on pattern paper, white heat embossed the greeting, then adhere to bright green panel that goes onto the white card base.  Next I adhere the bell canvas die, added to ribbon bow; and embellished with Stickles.
