The weather is getting COLDER!! One thing we like to do at our house on Cold Days is get warmed up with a YUMMY Cup of Hot Chocolate!! DELICIOUS!!  =)
I just LOVE LOVE LOVE the NEW Cup of Cocoa Stamp Set!! This set has a whole bunch of FUN Mug images!! I knew I wanted to create my own Patterned Paper!! I used almost all of the Images to Stamped and Emboss all over the background using Black Onyx Ink and Clear Embossing Powder!! I added some ColoiQue Black Diamond Ink Splatters to add some Texture!! Then I chose to Highlight the BEAUTIFUL Snowflake Mug in the center of my card!! I used Copic Markers in (R22, R29 & R89) to Color the Mug to match the Plaid Lawn Fawn Paper I used for the Waffle Flower Scalloped Circle Die Cut Frame!! A little Studio Katia Crystal Gem was added to the Center of the Snowflake on the Mug for some added Sparkle!! For the center of the Frame I used Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to add a POP of Color and Distressed it with some Water Splatters!! I Stamped and Embossed Three Snowflake Images form the Sweater Weather Stamp Set with some Lawn Fawn White Embossing Powder!! The Largest Snowflake actually matches the Snowflake on the Mug!! ;) I added the "It's a Hot Chocolate kind of day" sentiment also from the Cup of Cocoa Stamp Set and Embossing it in Lawn Fawn White Embossing Powder on a little Reverse Confetti Midnight Cardstock banner cut from the Frames & Flags Die Set!! To Finish my Card of I used Tonic Studios Aqua Glitter Pen to color the Cool Whipped Topping and add some Nuvo Drops in Berry Red and Sunlit Meadow Glitter Drops!!  I LOVE the look of the Black and White Background with the POP of colors!!

Winter Coffee Lover Blog Hop w/ Newton's Nook Designs!! =)

Pin It


 
HELLO & HAPPY Monday!!

Today I'm playing along with the WINTER Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!!
There are going to be TONS of fun Prizes too - 
including a $25 store credit from Newton's Nook Designs!!
You can head over to the Coffee Lovers Blog for more details on how to play along! 
 
Here's what I created:
With the Holiday Season upon us I like to try and find ways to make Gifts that I can give not just for the Holidays, but throughout the year using my MOST beloved Stamped Images!! If you follow me you know I also LOVE to make Jewelry, so why not combine the two!!??
I Started by Die Cutting the Cup of Cocoa Die Set from some Grafix Shrink Film and then Stamped the Image from the Cup of Cocoa Stamp Set using MFT Hybrid Black Ink and used my Copic Markers to Color the pieces!! I used a Heat Gun to Shrink them and then I used the Quick Dry Aleene's Jewelry & Metal Glue to add the Metal 8mm Earring Rounds onto the backs of both pair!! In hind Sight, I'd use a Smaller Earring Round, but that's all I had on hand!!
For the Tag I used the Fancy Edges Tag Die Set!! I layered the Scalloped Tops for a FUN Design using Reverse Confetti Avocado Card Stock!! I Die Cut some of the other pieces for the Special Pieces in order to add the Earrings to the Tags so they are Supported well!! I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiments from the Newton's Candy Cane Stamp Set on the bottom of my Tags!! I plan on giving them as gifts to one if my SWEET Friends who just LOVES Coffee!!

HELLO!!
Welcome to the Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Blog Hop!! You're in for a "REAL" Treat today as there are SEVERAL Special Designers joining us to give you some EXTRA Inspiration for those last minute Holiday Projects, plus a SPECIAL Die Set with Purchase for a limited time!!
I have SEVERAL Projects to share,  so lets jump right in!! =)
My First Project today uses the Newton's Nook Designs "Snowfall Stencil" and the "All Aboard for Christmas" Stamp Set and the coordinating "All Aboard for Christmas" Die Set!!
Here's a look at the entire Set!!
If you MISSED the Release Week of this Set FULL of AMAZING Inspiration, here's the Link!!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this SWEET Set and think there are SO MANY ways you could use it!!  
I Stamped and Embossed the Images and Die Cut them using the coordinating Die Set!! I wanted to create a FUN Scene so I masked the Track area and used Gathered Twigs Distress Ink, to ink it up!! For the Sky I used Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to Ink my Sky and then inked the "Snowfall Stencil" for the look of Falling Snow again using Tumbled Glass Distress Ink!! Some Water Droplets add texture and then I added some ColoriQue Snow Summit Ink Splatters for Snow!! I created the Railroad by Die Cutting a MFT Fence Die from some Distress Watercolor Paper and Inking it with Ground Espresso Distress Ink!! I cut part of the Fence away to create a Symmetrical Track!! I LOVE the way it looks and its exactly the right Scale for the Images!! I Colored the Images with Copic Markers added some Tonic Studios Aqua Shimmer Pen, then used some Morning Dew Nuvo Drops for some added Dimension!!

    I'm SUPER BLESSED to have an AMAZINGLY Talented Lil' Crafting Buddy!!
He WANTED to create a Project for the Blog Hop today too!!   =)
He's as EXCITED as I am to get the AWESOME New Products each Month and likes to create Cards right along beside me!! He's ALWAYS SO HAPPY and likes to send HAPPY Mail with the Cards he creates!! So I just had to share this Card Greyson made using the  "All Aboard for Christmas" Stamp Set!! He does it ALL!! He Stamped it using the Misti Stamping Tool and Colored it in using my Copic Markers!!   =)  He even Autographed this one, so his Teacher will know he made it!! She'll be getting this Card with her Christmas Gift!! SHSHSH!! 
Here he is holding a DT Package I received FULL of the Release Products, and Coloring his Card!! The last Picture is the Finished Card!! I may be Bias, but not bad for a 4 yr. old, right!!??  ;)
My Second Card for today is one I had in mind after being INSPIRED by a Video I saw Stephanie Klauck shared showcasing a Card Design Francine had made!!
I've used the "Winter Woofs" Set!! Here's a look at the entire Set and a Link for even more Inspiration using it!!
 
Isn't it FUN!!?? I knew I wanted to create a Ice Skating Pond for the Puppy to be on and I used SEVERAL NND Products to build my Design!! The Sweet Dog is from the "Winter Woofs" Stamp Set and I've used the coordinating "Winter Woofs" Die Set!! I Stamped and Embossed the Image and colored with Copic Markers!! It's hard to see in the photo, but I added some Tonic Studio Aqua Shimmer Pen for some Sparkle to the Scarf and the Blades of the Ice Skates!! I've used the "Whispering Pines" Stamp Set to create my Forest Background!! Inking the Images with Distress Oxide Inks in several Colors (Peeled Paint, Lucky Clover, Mustard Seed, and Vintage Photo) to get a Dimensional look to the Trees, then I Embossed them with Clear Embossing Powder!! I used the Sky Borders Die Set to create the look of a Fluffy Snow Edge surrounding the Pond!! I Stamped and Embossed my Sentiment from the Winter Woofs Stamp Set onto one of the NEW Flag Dies from the Frames & Flags Die Set!! I Stamped and Embossed the Snow Flakes also from this Set and added some Studio Katia Crystals to the Centers for some Sparkle!! Some Water Droplets and ColoriQue Snow Summit Ink Splatters add to the Snowy Feel!! For one finishing touch to my Ice Skating Pond I Die Cut the Stitched Heart Trail Die from the Lawn Fawn Set into the Clear Embossed Ice Skating Pond!! I wanted it to look as though the Puppy had created it with his Ice Skates in the Ice while Ice Skating!! SQUEAL!! I just LOVE LOVE LOVE the way it looks and its the little details like this that I think finish off a FUN Scene!!
