    12/28 Coffee and Cards

    Holy Cow that is a lot of cards!! Four full size and Six 3 x3, all from two 6 x 6 pieces of DSP (designer series paper). You would not know from this side, but this is Christmas DSP. The Night Before Christmas (150437) if full of stockings, Christmas trees and even reindeer. Combine that with Itty Bitty Birthday Stamp set (148618) and Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set (146667) and you got a bunch like this. Starting with the full size cards. Which do you like better?? The left, all lined up or the right, topsy tervy?? The other difference is that the Navy version does not have Linen Thread…

    Treats with Night Before Christmas

    The Scalloped Tag Topper punch is perfect for “wrapping” treats. Have you tried it?? Using a strip of cardstock, punch both the top and bottom. You have a pretty top where you add a few pieces of DSP (Night Before Christmas- 150437) and DONE!! The truffle that I ended up putting inside did NOT want to stay put… I “created” a seat, if you will, for it. Scored all four sides and snipped one side (all four sides) to create the boxed seat. Ohh yeah and a circle die (Layering Circles-141705) in the middle. Dressed it up with a pretty bow (Cherry Cobbler Strip Ribbon-150439) and it is now ready…

    11/30 Coffee and Cards

    Ohh, what fun I had out at Geodes and Gemstones today! Thank you to Holly and Dennis AGAIN for letting me use part of their space! I appreciate all that joined us today! But let’s talk Coffee and Cards. Can you believe that we did not stamp one single thing?? I did however find the Santa and reindeer. So there is your bonus card. The sentiment from the Santa’s sleigh is a sticker from the Memories and More pack (150808). The card base is from the Memories and More Cards and Envelopes (150440), which can make 20 cards. The Santa on the right is a card from the same Memories…

    Itty Bitty Birthday for a Challenge

    More birthday cards for my stash! Hey, let’s think about this for a minute… 365 days in a year. Yup, I will be making 365 plus cards, but most importantly SENDING them! ANYWAY, The Global Design Project has a fun sketch this week. Using this sketch for my two new birthday cards. Coffee and Cards was exciting this morning, because one of my brothers stopped in. I am grateful for his help. He is the one that downloads my FB lives for me. Thank you Brad! Check out the live! In addition to adding the leaves, you see that there is a knot on the sentiment. But let’s talk DSP.…
