Coffee Lover\’s Wreath

I always love the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hops and I\’ve made this bright cheery card for their  Spring/Summer Blog Hop.

Sunny Studio Quilted Hearts Embossing Folder
I wanted to do a springy wreath so I went through my stamp sets looking for images that would work for my idea.  

 
I started by dry embossing the background and then I die cut a circle for the sentiment area.  The \”quilted\” panel was attached to the card base with foam tape so there would be nice dimension. I stamped, Copic colored and die cut a bunch of images and then started working on my layout.  When I had the wreath the way I wanted, I took a picture with my phone so I could glue everything the same way.  


Supplies:
Altenew Tea Time stamps and dies
Avery Elle Festive Wreath stamps and dies
Photoplay Thinking of you stamps and dies
Sunny Studio Quilted Hearts Embossing Folder
Jillibean \”Enjoy\” sentiment (heat embossed) stamp and die

I am so pleased that you stopped by!  Pop on over to the blog hop and see all the creative cards.

WWC250 – Helen\’s Feminine "Anything Goes" Challenge

Hello and welcome. This week we are making \”feminine\” cards at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge. Talented Helen is our hostess. 
I wanted to do a pretty thank you card so I started by stamping,  coloring and die cutting this favorite wreath.  I wanted a subtle white on white backdrop so I die cut a basket weave panel and affixed to an A2 card base. I love the pretty little sentiment which I heat embossed. 

Supplies:
Avery Elle – Festive Wreath stamps and dies
Frantic Stamper Basket Weave die.
Bristol Cardstock
Zig Clean Clear Markers (May Green 47, Pale Green 45, Lt. Carmine Red 21, Red 20, Light Blue 36, Cobalt Blue 31). 
Sentiment:  Photoplay Paprika

I am pleased to be entering my card in:

WWC201 – Marsha\’s Special Two-Week Year End Anything Goes

I love Christmas and all the opportunities for paper crafting.  I\’ve decorated several boxes and gift bags and am especially happy with this particular gift.

I ordered some white and kraft boxes and had fun decorating them. This particular parcel features Avery Elle\’s Festive Wreath stamp set.  I colored with Copic markers, added shine with a shimmer pen and then fussy cut the images and attached with foam mounting squares.  To finish it off I tied on a bright red bow.

I am a design team member for Watercooler Wednesday and created this package for Marsha\’s Two-Week Year End Anything Goes Challenge  I hope you will pop over and see what the other artists have posted  and then link one of your creations.

I am entering my gift box in the following:
