Just a Little Something...

Hey there! Popping in today with a cute little number I put together for the Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop! I actually thought of this just before going to bed last night.

I remembered the tiny cup from Precious Remembrance Shop's Coffee Love set thinking it would look cute kind of willy nilly on this Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Borders 3 die. After stamping the cup in PTI's Green Parakeet and Pale Peony inks, I added the splatters from PRS Positive Thoughts stamp set using PTI's Kraft ink. This was added to a white panel stamped with the Coffee Love sentiment. A PPP Mini Tag die holds a single cup. It's topped with a sweet Mama Elephant bow. A few PPP Lime Sorbet (4mm & 6mm) sequins for sparkle because who doesn't like a little sparkle!!

That's it from me today. I have to check on my homemade spaghetti sauce that's bubbling away! Have a great day and thanks for stopping by ~Lisa


cQc #347 ~ Unforgettable!

Hello! Long time, no post...sorry about that. I've been catching up on things around the house since Sweet P is home with her mama for the summer. School will start up again before you know it and my little sidekick will once again fill my days! So are you ready for a new ColourQ challenge? I thought this combo was a fun one to work with. Not something I would usually put together, but I kinda like it! Oh, and my personal in house critic did too *wink*!!

I started with my Pretty Pink Posh Decorative Tag Die (I love this die so much!!) that was already cut. I added one of the adorable Wplus9 elephants to the center then popped a little party hat on his head. The sentiment from the same set was stamped in PTI's Soft Stone ink. I've had this sweet brown flower forever. I think I picked it up at my local JoAnn store. A couple of buttons and this little number was complete!

This one works for the SSS:Animal Magic challenge so I'll enter it there today.


I'm so happy you spent a little of your day with me! ~Lisa


cQc #346 ~ You're the Best!

Hello and a happy Tuesday to you! Ready for a new palette from ColourQ? This is another one perfect for Father's Day or any masculine cards you might be needing. I'll be linking this card up at CASology where their cue word this week is masculine.

I've paired Precious Remembrance Shop stamps with Pretty Pink Posh dies for this card. Using a border stamp from the Holiday Wishes set, I stamped a plaid pattern onto Marshmallow cardstock using PTI Smokey Shadow and Simply Chartreuse inks. It's die cut with a Stitched Tags die. I added a little snippet of Bordering Blue (remember that envelope I found for last week's challenge!) to the bottom. It was cut with a Stitched Borders 2 die. I added the hand-cut tie to the back of the tag and popped on two tiny navy buttons. The sentiment and stitched line are from the retired Mom & Dad stamp set.

Masculine cards always take me longer to design, how about you? But I'm pretty happy with this one! Have a wonderful day and thanks for visiting ~Lisa

Hello Sunshine!

Hey there peeps! Just popping in with a quick card for this week's CASology challenge. Their cue word is sunshine and we have had plenty of that today!

I stenciled my sun (PTI harvest gold and summer sunrise inks) onto a white panel followed with the Clear and Simple sentiment (PTI smokey shadow ink). Then I popped this onto a harvest gold card base. Easy peasy!

Hope things are sunny where you are! ~Lisa


cQc #345 ~ I Love You!

Hello, hello! Are you ready for a new ColourQ challenge? We have a great palette this week that's perfect for those Father's Day cards you need to get ready. I was inspired by not only the colors, but the inspiration photo too!

I pulled out one of my PTI heart dies for this one. I cut several papers so that I could mimic the wooden heart in the photo. My XOXO and I love you sentiments are from Precious Remembrance Shop's Love Coupon stamp set. They're stamped in Versa Mark then heat embossed with Hero Arts white embossing powder. I searched high and low for a color resembling Bordering Blue and finally found an envelope in my stash ~ phew!! Some twine and a bracket border from MFT helped to ground my design. I'm not a teal person, but I'm okay with it here!

We love it when you play along at ColourQ!
Can't wait to see how you are inspired this week.
Have a good one ~Lisa
