November Rudolph Days

First of all I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! I am so blessed to have all of you as followers and good cyber friends. You always are so kind and leave me wonderful comments. I really appreciate it.

And here is my contribution to the November Rudolph Days Challenge. I used a Tim Holtz 3D Poinsettia embossing folder to make this card. And the sentiment is from Stamplorations.



I embossed it onto pink card stock and then later used small blending brushes to add more color to the design. It was layered then onto some plaid pattern paper from Gina K. Designs. 

I hope all of you are having a great day! We are having our family with us on the weekend for our Thanksgiving. So I am looking forward to that. All will pitch in and help with the meal prep too so that eases the burden considerably. 

Take care everyone and God bless, Verna

Coffee Card #9-Final One

The last card to be entered in the 2021 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Hop is another one using the labels from the Stamplorations Digital Printable division. This one is the little gingerbread girl design and she is so cute too! I added the label to some pattern paper from the Ultimate Crafts Season's Greetings Paper pad. 


One thing about these digital labels is that you can size them to the specifications you want for a card, label or tag. The sentiment I used for this one is from the Stamplorations Layered Lights stamp set. And I happened to have an Altenew Grapevine ink pad. It is the perfect shade to match the red in the design.

Friday is the last day to enter a card to the coffee hop so if you want to join in you best get brewing up a design. LOL Still time and there are wonderful prizes being offered as well. All the information is at the coffee hop site and also I have a photo at the side bar on top giving the website and dates. 

Well, I might be missing in action until Thanksgiving. Something I hate to do is clean house but I guess that is in my future for the next few days. It is hard work too as it is difficult for me to maneuver with a walker to dust and sweep. Hubby will do the vacuuming.  I might have to do a bit of baking as well.

So stay well and have a good crafty time. Your comments you leave me mean so much to me so I am so grateful for them.

God bless, Verna

Coffee Card #8

My eighth card again is using some of the labels from the digital division of Stamplorations. I only printed out a few of them from the Prim Christmas Tags, Labels and Journal Spots set but I think I will be using more in the future for cards next Christmas season. I think they are so darling. This card will be entered in the 2021 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Hop as well.


I used a mix of pattern papers from the American Crafts Noel paper pad. I thought the diagonal design added a bit more interest. The sentiment is from Stamplorations Christmas Joy stamp set. 

So glad you visited and I wish you a wonderful day!

God bless, Verna

Coffee Card # 7

I'm back again today with another coffee card for the 2021 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Hop. I again used a darling label design from Stamplorations found in their digital department. I am glad I got a new colored ribbon in my printer as these are so cute. 


This little gingerbread man is so darling in his polka dotted cup. I was wishing I could find some polka dot paper to match but I had no such thing so I simply used some striped paper that looks great too as it has a lot of the same colors. The sentiment is from the Stamplorations Christmas Baubles stamp set and the paper is from the American Crafts Noel Paper pad.

Well I will be back again shortly as I am going to post the rest of my coffee cards I made. It is time for me to clear the deck of crafty goodies and concentrate on cleaning and maybe some baking for the Thanksgiving weekend when our kids will all be here except for the family who live in Japan. I wish they could be here as well but maybe one day travel will be allowed again. I sure pray so!

God bless, Verna

Coffee Card #6

Using the Stamplorations Digital Prim Christmas Tags, Labels and Journal Spots set I also created this card and will be adding it in the 2021 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Hop. 



The pattern paper is from the Ultimate Crafts Season's Greetings Collection pad. The sentiment is from the Stamplorations Layered Lights stamp set.  He is such a cute little snowman!

Well, that is it for me today. See you next time and thanks for the visit.

God bless, Verna

Coffee Card #5

Well lucky me was so glad when I saw I had won a $7 dollar gift from Stamplorations so I decided to check out their digital division and in that area of their web store I found this wonderful set of designs called Prim Christmas Tags, Labels, and Journaling Spots. And, the nice thing is that they can be made to any size you want with your program. I wanted mine to fit on an A2 size card so I went that route. All I had to do was cut it out. I am entering this first one I made with the new digital designs at the 2021 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Hop



The pattern paper is from an Ultimate Crafts Season's Greetings Collection pad and the sentiment I used is from the Stamplorations Christmas Baubles Stamp set. I thought everything went together so well.

If you want to join in on the hop there is still time. Check the side bar for all the details at the website listed there. Lots of wonderful prizes from great sponsors. You could be a lucky person who is in the winners lineup. 

Well, I might be back later today with another card. Until then take care.

God bless, Verna

Coffee Card #4

I earlier in the year had gotten some wonderful paper coffee designs and card fronts from Stamplorations so this card features them and also a sentiment from the Bunnies 'N Beans stamp set from Stamplorations. I am entering this in the ongoing 2021 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Hop. The logo with the website and dates is on the side bar at the top so if interested please check it out. Lots of wonderful prizes from awesome sponsors too!



This is a card design that I think works for anytime of the year. I did add a bit of purple around the edges to give it more enhancement. Not sure if it worked or not but it is what it is! 

Well, I will not post anymore cards today. I want to get my cards written out for my shut-ins from us and also I do the cards from the church. So that will keep me out of trouble we hope! Hahaa! Take care and thanks for the visits and wonderful comments. You are the best!

God bless, Verna
