Creative Fuel-Coffee And Cards With Celeste And Deb

Hello and welcome to another installment of Coffee And Cards With Celeste and Deb! We have another exciting guest designer with us this month, the very talented Renee Moran. This month's post also corresponds with the current Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop
To create my card I started with a clean white card base. I layered on some pretty patterned papers from the Pink Paislee Hey Kid 6x6 paper pad. I die cut a fun curved scalloped border from Simon Says Stamp to help break up the patterns. I stamped the mug from the Reverse Confetti Just Brew It stamp set onto some white cardstock using Stampin' Up's Tangerine Tango ink and die cut the image using the coordinating die. I popped the image up using some 3M foam tape onto the die cut oval focal panel I created with some My Favorite Things oval dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Honey Bee Blah Blah Blah stamp set using Versafine onyx black ink for a nice crisp look. To finish my card I added a few orange enamel dots from the Simple Stories Life Documented collection. I hope you like it!
As for my coffee choice I opted for a nice cup of Dunkin' Donuts toasted almond latte! And yes, it's as tasty as it sounds!
Now be sure to hop on over to Deb and Renee's blogs and enjoy some more fun coffee creations!

Just Your Style

Today's card was created for my beautiful daughter Megan's birthday. She loves all things glittery and feminine but is also the biggest tomboy I know. I just knew she would love this very feminine and glittery card for her birthday. I started with some smokey grey cardstock from Stampin' UP and layered on some striped yellow and ivory patterned paper from the American Crafts Welcome Spring 6x6 paper pad. I cut down a small panel of white cardstock and embossed it using a daisy Sizzex embossing folder and my Cuttlebug. I stamped Stamping Bella's Uptown Girl Posh Has A Present stamp onto some white Copic-friendly paper and colored her in to match the patterned papers. I fussy cut her out and mounted her to the card using some Stampin' UP foam dimensionals. I then stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set and cut it out and mounted it to the card using the same dimensionals. For the finishing touch I added some yellow Stickles for some added shimmer and shine. I will be entering this card into The Paper Players challenge.
