Coffee-Coffee And Cards By Celeste And Deb

Hello and happy Sunday! For our monthly collaboration Debra Davison and I decided to create coffee themed cards since the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers blog hop started yesterday. Perfect timing, right? To create my card I started by stamping the coffee image from the Unity Stamp Company's Coffee Side By Side stamp set onto some white Copic-friendly cardstock. I colored the images using my alcohol markers and then cut the panel down using some fun angles. I then created a border using some textured cardstock from the Mat Stacks paper pad by DieCuts With A View. Using a piece of coordinating patterned paper from the same paper pad I adhered it all down to my A2 sized card and rounded the bottom corners using my We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper. To finish my card off I added some gorgeous mocha colored sequins in a 6mm size from The Ton. So simple, but so pretty! 
It has finally warmed up a bit here in Southeast Missouri and I mowed my lawn this afternoon and was hot after my shower. So, my coffee choice today is a nice homemade latte using some coconut crème liquid creamer, ice, almond milk, and my standard dark roast homebrewed coffee. It definitely hit the spot! Now be sure to visit Debra's blog and see what fun she created this month!

Hello Spring Chicken

Today's card was created for the latest The Paper Players card challenge. To create my card I started by layering the pretty blue bandana patterned paper from the American Crafts Heartland Farm 6x6 paper pad onto my white A2 card base. I then die cut an oval focal panel using some white cardstock that I inked with some Tim Holtz faded jeans distress ink to create a sky and a pierced edge oval die from My Favorite Things. I then stamped the fence from the Kaisercraft Cock A Doodle Do stamp set, colored it using my alcohol markers, and fussy cut it out. I adhered it to the panel and then layered a grassy piece on top using some green cardstock from Hobby Lobby that I die cut with a Lawn Fawn die. I stamped the clouds from the Kaisercraft stamp set and fussy cut those out too. I stamped the sentiment from the Art Impressions Spring Chicken stamp set and then adhered the clouds onto the panel, one directly to the panel and the other with foam squares from Scrapbook Adhesives. To finish off my card I stamped the chicken from the same Art Impressions stamp set, colored her in using my alcohol markers, fussy cut her, and popped her up off of the card. A few dark blue gems from Hobby Lobby in each corner finished this card off nicely! Hope you like it and thank you for visiting my blog today!
