Coffee With Friends

Photo taken by : Lindsey Thank you!

Welcome to the 12 Kits of Occasions, March post! 
 The very talented   Tracey is our host for this month and she sent this wonderful coffee kit, can you smell it! 
I loved the papers and colors. I sat down to get started and before I knew it , I had 5 cards!

Amy Tsuruta is our guest this month! Welcome Amy!

I used my Poppystamps: Pinpoint Main Street Tags for the card above.

I colored the beads and added some Glossy Accents .

I wanted to make the old cars the focal point on this shaker, I covered them up just a bit. 
 After reading the package  of the Shakeit window, I realized it comes with peal and stick already on it.  
I love those things, I bought mine form Serendipity Stamps. 
If sold out you can get them from Impression Obsession Stamps.

I think I like this one best!
 The complete list of supplies and Designers will be HERE on the 12 Kits of Occasions Blog. 
Please stop by and be amazed by the rest of the Design Team. 

Thank you and God Bless!

Pot Full of Utensils!

 Susan created this adorable gnome tag! I don’t own any gnomes but I should.
 So I went with this chef,  seemed like a good substitute! Right!

Hello! For my tag,  I used Susan’s colors , bricks and a pot full of cooking utensils instead of flowers. 
 I added some  Glossy Accents to the pot and utensils to give it a bit of added texture and because I like it:)

Hope to see you play along and fun with it like I did!

Thank you for the visit and comments if you decide to leave one.

Hello! I had a bit of time before we left town , to make a simple card for the hop. 
Nothing fancy ... I used the colors and circles.

I bought some... Shakeit Shaker Card Pouches.
Sure makes for fast and easy shaker cards, the beads and Wood Sequins Combo move so easily. 
I found the perfect circle for the shakers any of the 
 Then I just glued the top to the shaker pouch.

I can’t wait to see the amazing cards you all made. I blended my inks on each balloon so a mix of colors. 

My husband and I took a few days off and went to Sequoia National Park,
it was gorgeous and we had the best time! Very cold but that is perfect for the hikes we went on. 
We both enjoy the cold and we even got snow!

With Thannks

Tracey McNeely is the Muse for this week with this beautiful card!

Hello! I was inspired by Tracey’s , beautiful bloom and colors!
My stamping technique was inspired from the amazing video (link below) by Yana Smakula on Wplus9 blog.
Love this set so much, I woke up at 2am to make this card then had to wait for the sun to come up.
Each flower is stamped in one color with a bit of white on top
then stamped in the same color again. 

Hope you have a blessed weekend!

Faux Brush Lettering

Hello friends !
Amy shared a neat video, with a new way to make brush lettering. 

Ok, first I did the brush lettering on the stamped “happy “ then decided to do the same thing on the 
Happy die and I like the way that one turned out better.
I masked off my panel then did some shading and used the same color ink and a stencil from the
 Color Pops kit. The technique was from a previous MIM.  #241: Ombre Stenciled Backgrounds.
  My flowers are cut from watercolored  paper I made with my Zeg pens.

Thank you very much for the visit today! I hope your day is wonderful!

Loving the Freehand Florals

 Hello and happy Monday to you all! 
I got my happy mail form Wplus9 in, two days I think! 
The shipping price is amazing too!

This is my very first go using this new stamp set.
 I was just going to stamp images and then make a book mark that I needed.
 I kinda liked it mistakes and all! So I turned it into this birthday card! 
I stamped a few things wrong but like I said this was my first go.
I do love this set! Freehand Florals and Strictly Sentiments  from Wplus9 
The little felt butterfly is from Memory box!  I made a bunch of felt products for a look book.

Thank you again for the visit!
