Final Coffee Card

I got a  new stamp set in the mail today and saw it had some coffee elements on it so of course I had to make a quick card design for the 2020 Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop using some of the images on it. It is a collaboration of several companies who went together to create this stamp set called Thinking of You by The Stamping Village. For each stamp set sold $5.00 will be given to Save the Children organization. They are on the front lines supporting children during the COVID-19 battle, delivering meals to families that struggle with food insecurity. Companies in this collaboration are Altenew, Avery Elle, Concord & 9th, Dare 2 B Artzy, Gina K. Designs, Hero Arts, Lawn Fawn, LDR Creative,  Picket Fence Studios, Pink & Main, Pink Fresh Studio and Studio Katia.


Sorry about the crooked line of the fingernail decals in the center. Arthritic hands don't work so well these days. I also added more of them individually to the front of the card. I used an old decorative scissors to cut out the panel and then placed it on a Recollections Printed Card Stock base. I colored in the images with a few Tombows that still had some inkiness. Most of mine are dried up now. The coffee designs were from Picket Fence Studios and the sentiment was from Avery Elle.

Thanks for the visit and to all of you who came by I wish you good health and happiness.

God bless,
Verna

Peony Song

Before I get too involved with today's projects I wanted to post this entry I have for the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge-Anything Goes with the option of Gingham or Plaid. I chose to use some plaid with my design this time.


I used a combination of  Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol and Bic markers to color the design. But I also brushed some ink around the edges of the scene too. The House Mouse Designs image I chose is called Peony Song. The pattern paper, card stock and inks are from Gina K. Designs.

Thanks for the visit and I hope your day is off to a great start. We had an electrical outage so now a lot of the appliances that have clocks have to be corrected. I always hate when that happens. LOL But it is not a big thing but mainly an annoyance.

Until next time take care and God bless,
Verna

#5 Coffee for Dad

This might be my last post for the coffee hop this week as I have a lot of things I need to work on around the house in preparation for the coming weekend.  But I wanted to share this card I made for the 2020 Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog hop at least. The logo information is along my side bar in case you want to submit a card. There are lots of prizes and this time you can use a coffee, tea, hot cocoa design for any season. So that might help promote more entries.


For this card I used a Creative Expressions embossing folder called Coffee Stains but instead of embossing with it I just inked it up and placed the design onto some Gina K. Designs Sandy Beach card stock. It worked like a stamp this way. I used Gina K. Designs Warm Cocoa ink too. The strip of  Gina K. Designs Blue Raspberry card stock was a perfect addition I thought to add some bright color to the sentiment which is also from Gina K. Designs. I punched out the scalloped circle to frame that wood chip with the cup design. The  wood chip and embossing folder were won from the last hop so there you see one can get some lovely prizes.

I hope you are having a great week and I thank you so much for stopping to visit.

God bless,
Verna

Coffee Card #4

This is my fourth card I made for the 2020 Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. This one is done strictly using pattern papers. So it is not one of my normal things to do and I must tell you since it was out of my crafting zone I did struggle a bit with the design. But I hope I pulled it off. I also made it one of the new craze slim line cards. The photo is not the best either so  please forgive that.


The papers used for the card are from the Echo Park Coffee Paper pad. I also added some bling to the card which is some I won in a prize years ago. It is from Want 2 Scrap. I don't know if they are still in business or not but I thought the bling added a lot to the design. The card base is Gina K. Designs Dusty Pink.

Well, I hope you are having fun with the hop. For more information check out the website info along the side bar where you can see the dates for entering. There are lots of prizes to be given out and you could be a lucky winner.

Until next time please stay well and have a fun time.

God bless,

May 2020 Rudolph Days Challenge

I used a tree I got in a prize package to create this Christmas scene. It was die cut or silhouette cut from plaid card stock and I had to think a long time on how to make use of it. Well I finally decided to just make it into a scene and the end result was this. This is my entry for the May 2020 Rudolph Days Challenge.


I used blending brushes to add some color to the dusty peach ribbed card stock card base and also added some color to the plaid tree in a light green. I took some scraps of Ivory card stock and made some snow banks for the background of the tree. The last things I did then was to add some sequins to the tree and also some snowflake sequins in the sky area. The sentiment was one from a stamp set I won a few years back and it is from the Art-C brand.

Very non-traditional in design but I really still like it.  I hope you like it as well. And have a great Memorial Day! Those normal events for this day are on hold here so we are having a really quiet one.

Take care everyone!

God bless,
Verna

Coffee Card #3

JessicaLynnOriginals offered a free coffee gnome digital and that was the image used for the focal part of my card. I  printed him out and then built a scene around him. I like it a lot and was very happy with the design.  So this is my third entry into the 2020 Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.



I colored the gnome with my  Bic markers and also added some grass along the bottom.  The sentiment is one of Gina K. Designs. And, the Leafy Frame is from Kat Scrappiness.

Thanks for visiting and if you want to join in on the fun there is information on the sidebar of my blog  post. There are lots of prizes to be given out.

Until next time God bless,
Verna

Tea Card #2 For Coffee Hop

This time I used a darling House Mouse design called Feeling Rosy to  make a card for the 2020 Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers  Blog Hop.


I colored the image with my Bic markers and then with a Marvy-Uchida large circle punch I  punched out the main focal image and also two black circles. I arranged them onto a piece of Gina K. Designs Blue Raspberry card stock and then with a white paint pen I added some dots to the card front. The  sentiment is also one of Gina K. Designs. Inside I added a sheet of white card stock so I can write a message.

The information for the hop is posted on my side bar at the top. You might want to consider joining in as there are lots of prizes again being offered.

I am also entering in the Double D Challenge for this time.

I wish all of you a wonderful weekend. So until next time, stay well and take care.

God bless,
Verna
