Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

It's that time again for another Coffee Lover's Blog Hop. I just happened to stumble upon it and actually almost missed it. It runs from September 23-30th so I'm just sliding in under the wire. I didn't want to miss it and tonight I will be hopping along to see everyone's awesome designs!
I have been collecting "coffee themed" stamps, dies, embossing folders lately..... an obsession in the making LOL. I'm totally loving the Lawn Fawn's Perfectly Plaid collections. This paper is from the Fall 6x6 pad. This card's cups are from the Clearly Besotted Warm Solutions II" stamp set. I stamped them with Hero Arts inks in colours to match my paper. The cute little sentiment is from Studio L2E's Morning Cup set. A little bit of Doodlebug Twine and some Nuvo Crystal Drops (another new obsession) and my card was finished.

Ok now I'm off to hop along! 
Thanks for stopping by!

Jump For Joy!

Hi Ai Fans!
Oh My Goodness!!!! Can't you just feel the fun spirit in "Lillie" (item#1933)? She looks like she would be a real energetic character that would keep you on your toes! I met lots of "Lillies" when I worked in Long Term Care and they could sure make your day with their spirited souls!
This paper is from the Simple Stories Bloom and Grow 6x6 collection and made paper piecing Lillie's pants so much fun! The sentiment is called "Goofy Things"! Perfect saying to go with how I perceive Lillie's outlook on life to be!
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, E21, R20
Hair: C1, C2, C4
Top: Y23, Y26, Y32

Happy Stamping

New Ai Challenge!

Howdy Ai Fans!
It's the second week of our "Cards To Die For" Challenge. All you need to do is use 2+ dies on your project. Art Impressions also just released these adorable Placecard sets
I'm using the Owl and Cat Placard set.
I made this cute kitty and decorated it with the eyeglasses and party hat. First I cut my pieces from black cardstock and then added a second set of die cut paper from the Doodlebug Smitten Kitten for fun. The designer paper isn't very thick so that's why I glued it to black cardstock to make it sturdier. I used YNS black gumdrops for the eyes.
Since we are getting close to Thanksgiving, I went one step further and made the Owl Placecard into a Turkey. All I did was cut oblong shapes in 3 different colours to use for the feathers and made a hat for him. I'm planning on making a bunch to personalize and decorate my Thanksgiving table with.

I have to admit these were super fun to make! It was kind of like playing paper doll dress up! Made me feel young again LOL!
Happy Stamping!
