Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!


Happy National Coffee Day, my friends! =) I love my coffee, so I decided to joining on the fun Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! You can find all the participant links  at Chaitali Narla's Blog. Thanks so much for organizing this fun blog hop, Chaitali! Here is what I made for the hop.


Ah, yes, I finally inked up this fun coffee themed stamp set from Papertrey Ink, thanks to this blog hop! I truly hope that I am not the only one that have stamps sitting around for months before inking them up! =)


The stacked coffee ups are from Latte Love set. It's inked with Antique Linen Distress Ink, colored with ZIG Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor and die cut using the matching die.


The patterned paper is from October Afternoon's beautiful Public Library 8x8 Paper Pad and the sentiment is included in the Latte Love set. I added splatters from Studio Calico's Calico White Mister Huey mist for a little interest.

That's all from me. Please go and check out all the participants links here and hope you'll hop with us! =)

Have a caffeinated day and thanks for stopping by!

Valerie in Autumn

Happy Weekend, my friends! Here is a card that I made using a sweet image from Mo's Digital Pencil.


Oh! Isn't she delightful? I adore little Valerie! =)


This image is included in a two-image set called Valerie in Autumn and she is printed on Papertrey Ink's Stamper's Select White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then trim and die cut to size. I added Glossy Accents to the heart on her dress and Rock Candy Distress Stickles to the leaves for a little interest.


The patterned paper is from Pen Pal collection by Pink Paislee and the sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp's Sending Happy Thoughts set.

That is all I have for now and it is also my last card as a Dream Team member for Mo's Digital Pencil. When I was first picked to be on the Dream Team, it was really a dream come true to me. I absolutely adore Mo's images and have always enjoyed coloring them. I love the life in Mo's images and have thoroughly enjoyed being on this amazing team. Thank you so much for being an awesome team leader Jak and most of all thanks to Mo for always coming up with beautiful images that bring me joy every time I color one of them! =)

Have a beautiful day and thanks for stopping by!

CAS(E) This Sketch #94

Hi ya, all! It's Thursday and it's time for a new sketch over at CAS(E) This Sketch! First is the sketch.


Here is my take on it.


Ok, here is the trick, if you hold it at arm's length and squint a little, you will see the sketch. =) This is me having a more liberal take on the sketch and I solemnly swear that this wouldn't be the last time. =)


I inked up the yummy donut and coffee mug from Lawn Fawn's Love You a Latte set, colored them with Copic markers then cut them out with the matching die set. Some Glossy Accents was added to the coffee and Rock Candy Distress Stickles was added to the counts. I love how it looks like sugar after it's dried.


The patterned paper is from Sweater Weather 6x6 Petite Paper Pad and the sentiment is from Chit Chat set both are from Lawn Fawn as well.

That's all from me. Don't forget to find out what the other design team members came up with for this week's sketch and link up your creations at CAS(E) This Sketch! You have until October 2nd 9:00 AM EST to enter! I can't wait to see what you make! =)

Paper Smooches SPARKS Anything Goes Challenge

Happy Sunday, all! =) It's time for a new challenge over at Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenges!


This is an "Anything Goes" week once again, so let your creativity run wild with Paper Smooches stamps and dies and enter for a chance to win! Here is what I made .


It's a fun journaling card shaker card! This is really simple and fun to make! =)


I inked up the school supplies from Smarty Pants set, colored them with Copic markers then fussy cut them out. A piece of acetate is cut to the same size as the journaling card and it's stamped with a sentiment from the same stamp set with Jet Black StazOn ink. After sewing three sides of the journaling card and acetate layer together, a few sequins went in with the school supply cut outs, the little shaker is then sawn closed.


I added another school themed journaling card to the back of the shaker and decorated it with mini wooden clothespin and a mini paper clip to give it a more finished look.

That's all from me. Don't forget to find out what the other design team members created for this challenge by clicking on the links below.

    Mo's Digital Pencil Monthly Blog Hop

    Hi and welcome to Mo's Digital Pencil Monthly Blog Hop! I am at the start of the blog hop so don't forget to keep on hopping after this! =) Here is my card!


    This month's host is Yours Truly and my theme for the hop is "Hello Autumn." I challenge my teammates to use Fall images colors, paper or embellishments for their projects. Hope this will inspire you to create fall projects! =)


    The image that I used is from Valerie in Autumn set. She is printed on Papertery Ink's Stamper's Select White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then trimmed to size.


    I think the image speaks for itself, so kept the design quite simple. The sentiment die is from Papertrey Ink's Phrase Play #7 die and the patterned paper is from Lawn Fawn's Sweater Weather 6x6 Petite Paper Pack. I die cut several pieces of the sentiment and glued them together for dimension. It is also coated with Rock Candy Distress Stickles for a bit of subtle sparkle.

    That's all for now. It's time to send you to Vili's Blog! Don't forget to leave comments along the way. TWO lucky commenters will each receive a $5 gift certificate to use in the Mo's Digital Pencil Store! =)
