***********************************************

Hello! Today I am featuring 5 cards from the Scrapping for Less May card kit.  Now if you follow me on YouTube and/or Instagram, you know I just had carpal tunnel release surgery on my right hand.  When I agreed to work with the Scrapping for Less kit at the beginning of this year, I didn’t know it would be at the same time of my surgery.  That being said instead of making my usual 10 cards, I had to settle for 5, and I made the 5 cards with one hand!  This was challenging and interesting to say the least, especially since I am right handed.  So, please forgive any crooked cut lines as that is what I had the most trouble with.  Otherwise I kept my cards fairly simple and really enjoyed working with the kit.

I do have an unboxing video posted HERE (will open in new window) if you want to check out what comes in the kit.  I will have my 5 cards 1 kit video posted soon (if not already by the time you read this) to my YouTube channel, so make sure you head on over there and subscribe so you don’t miss that video and future videos.

Below you will find pictures of the cards I created. Thank you to Scrapping for Less for letting me work with your kit this month.  It was a lot of fun and I just love the theme!  Hope you all enjoy my cards!

Don’t forget to participate in the blog hop.

Here are a couple cards I made using the Honey Bee Frappe Shake die set.  This die set has been out forever and I finally had a chance to play with it and boy was it a lot of fun! My favorite part was adding the whip cream with my snow marker!

Links to all products I used will be in the coordinating video that will be linked below!

This next card I made used more Honey Bee stamps that fit perfectly with this hop!  I colored these images using my Prima Colored Pencils.  I absolutely love the bold lines in this stamp set.  There will be a video coming out soon showing how I made this card.  Make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel (link below)!

Coffee Lovers Blog Hop 2018| Fall/Winter

Coffee-Lovers-Blog-Hop-10

One of my favorite times of year as a card maker is being able to participate in the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  It’s the same routine each time where I go through my stamp inventory and pull all my coffee stamps I have yet to use.  The chosen one this time around was Penny Black’s Saying a Latte.  I so love this girl and knew right away what I wanted to do.

Paper piecing was on the brain and I immediately decided that her shirt should be paper pieced with some holiday patterned paper.  Once I got started, I thought, hmm well tank tops really don’t go with winter, but maybe she is in her house by the fireplace?? Maybe??  We are going with that!

DSCN1324

I colored her with Copic markers after paper piecing her tank top, then used a Lawn Fawn stamp set for the sentiment.  The patterned paper I used for the circle and the background paper all come from the same pack.  Added some gold enamel dots and called her done!
