clbhfall2016edited

Hi! I’m very happy to have you visiting my blog today. I know your time is precious and hope that you enjoy your visit.

I’m not a coffee fan myself, but my husband likes it a lot. So, I have grown to think of coffee with a warm feeling because the smell of it means that he’s probably home. 🙂

I Love Coffee

Today I have a another card to share with you that I designed with STAMPlorations products for the Fall CLBH.

    STAMPlorations is one of the FAll CLBH sponsors and Shery has a bunch Coffee & Tea lover themed products in her store.

Here’s a closer look at my card:img_2324edited

 I love this new STAMPlorations set – Anywhere There’s Coffee Stamps & Die Set by Shery.

SheryRuss_AnywhereTheresCoffee-preview

 Besides the stamps from Anywhere There’s Coffee Stamps & Die Set,  I also used the ARTplorations stencil Hearts in Bubbles.

How I made this card:

  1. I made the background by sponging green , yellow, orange and red ink through the heart stencil.
  2. I carefully fussy cut the mug out of the panel and set it aside for another project.img_2323edited
  3. I stamped the cup and the ombré sentiment onto white cardstock.
  4. I attached the cup-heart frame to the with panel with foam tape.img_2341edited
  5. Matted the panel in black.
  6. Attached the panel to the card base yellow base.img_2335edited

 I really enjoyed making this card and I hope that you enjoyed seeing it.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I really appreciate your visit.

Grace & Peace,
Melissa

Card #2:

Slide1Don’t be shocked. The new year is only 101 days away.  😉 This is a pretty simple card. I created a bokeh background and added the silver heat embossed numbers. These number stamps are BIG and Bold and FUN!

I used the Bold Birthday Sentiments set for this next group of cards.

Card #3:

Slide4I adhered almost every stamp in the set to my stamp press and then inked it up and made 4 different versions of the same card, using the stamped sentiment background. I really like the font of this set and the sentiments are versatile. You could use them for any celebration, not only a birthday.
