Warm Wishes!

Hi there! I'm sharing the card I made for the Fall Coffee Lovers bloghop. Precious Remembrance Shop is one of the sponsors so I thought I would feature Dyane's fabulous products!

I've used three sets on this card. The cup is from the Coffee Love set, the leaves and speckles are from the Fall Colors set (one of my favorites!) and the bus is from the School Days set.


My thought process for this card comes from two different sources. The first being bus stop moms! How many times have I driven by seeing the kids huddled together while waiting for the bus. And then there is the huddle of moms. Some in their bathrobes or PJs, some in sweats, some in their work clothes. Most of them holding their cherished cup of coffee!

The second comes from the memories of Sweet P and her mommy hitting the Dunkin Donuts drive-thru before school for 1st grade teacher mommy's much needed kick start of hot coffee!

I'm happy you took a minute or two of your day to spend it with me!

Okay, the business is taken care of so it's on to my projects!

I've paired a sentiment from the new set with some festive patterned paper and the date image from the Oh Christmas set.

With this being a 'Happy Mail' set, I had to jazz up an envelope to coordinate with my card.

There is a little piece of double sided adhesive on the back of the circle for sealing the envelope.

Don't they look cute together! With the jingle bell and the 'stamped' stamp, this one is hand deliver only!

The coordinating tag will look right at home on a plated gift of Christmas cookies!  The sentiment comes from the Holiday Wishes stamp set.

Now I just have to figure out which neighbor or family member will get those cookies! Your next stop on the hop is our special guest designer Amy Tsuruta!

Stamptember 2017!

Hi friends! I'm sharing a card today featuring the new Pretty Pink Posh / Simon Says Stamp collaboration set for STAMPtember! This exclusive Damask Greetings set will be available at Simon Says Stamp while supplies last.

I've also used a couple of new products recently released at Pretty Pink Posh. The Stacked Edges1 die along with the Marshmallow Confetti Mix

The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed with Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder then die cut with the Scallop Diamond Tags

Paulina has given us so many wonderful products with this release! I decided to feature the pretty Stitched Foliage dies today. The blues, greens and golden yellow colors remind me of beautiful September days here in Ohio!

My shaker portion of the card was created first. I've used the small Scallop Oval and Stitched Notes dies with a mix of sequins (Metallic Bronze 4mm & 6mm, Mossy Green 4mm & 6mm, Marigold 4mm & 6mm) and the new Metallic Gold Confetti Mix. One of the leaves was added to the inside as well. Along with the Stitched Foliage, I've used leaves from the Happy Turkey stamp and Coordinating Dies sets. 

The banner was created with the Stitched Notes Dies, Twine and Bows Dies and a sentiment from the Fox Friends stamp set. 

Okay, that's it from me today. Now off you go to visit Sharon Harnist. Happy Hopping!
