You're the perfect blend!
This card was created as an anniversary card.  The cute coffee beans and latte cups are from Fiskers "Latte Love" Stamp set.

The quote is from the same stamp set, I simply covered up the "We're" in the phrase and replaced it with "you're" from my alphabet stamp set. Instant cute anniversary card! :)

Music, Stamps and a Love Note

Started crafting with an amazing local papercrafter in Goliad, Tx named Emika! She runs Piddling With Paper and has several classes each week for beginner to advanced. It was so relaxing to show up for her class with the elements for this card pre-cut in a cute envelope and I got to stamp/watercolor while listening to music. (Perfect zen moment for a crafter like me!) She had the coffee maker going too...bonus!! :D This card was so fun and easy to make, I loved watercoloring the guitar! 

All supplies are from Stampin' Up and you can contact Emika here, or shop online, if there is anything you need to add to your collection!

The inside of this card has a quote I fell in love with.

 "MUSIC...speaks what can't be expressed, 
soothes the mind and gives it rest, 
heals the heart and makes it whole, 
flows from heaven to the soul."  
(author unknown)

This card went to my best friend with a letter to cheer them up. Hope it gives you some crafty inspiration today! #MakeItAGoodOne

Adorable Newton!

Card number 6 for my favorite blog hop!! #summerclh I started a 7th but might not get it finished in time.

Just adore this stamp set by Newton's Nook called "Newton Loves Coffee"!  I was in the mood to do a little paper piecing from my Doodlebug "Sugar Shoppe" paper pad. (Plus my sister's birthday is coming up and I think she'll love this card!)

Yes I used a lot of glossy accents lol! The cute spotted cup had to be shiny though!

I even coated the sentiment stamped square that says "a birthday brew for you!"

 The finishing whiskers for Newton! Hope you enjoyed this creation!

It's Been Oolong!

Another creation for my favorite blog hop!

I love this darling stamp from Sweet Stamp Shop called Oolong! Decided to play with watercolors and stamped this image in Staz On black ink on watercolor paper.

I wanted to play with shadows a bit and decided to put them in front of these cute images. LOVE how this one came out!

The hello cutout word die is from Walter and Winnie, the pretty paper is from a Craft smith paper pad...apologies I forget the name at the moment! Put a glitter gel on the sugar cubes too.

Attempted one with shadows behind the images, but didn't like the way it came out at all, so ended up covering it over with more blue. But that's how we learn! I will attempt these shadows again in the future. :)
