Welcome back Blogger friends!

We'll be choosing an overall Creative Winner and 3 Top Winners to receive a Double D Badge to display on their blog.  And, one entry, chosen by random draw will be the winner of this awesome prize...

Lawn Fawn "Love You a Latte" Clear Stamp Set

Here's our mood board inspiration...


I was inspired by both the tea and coffee topics and decided to create two cards for this challenge...

"No one stacks up to YOU"

First up is this 6" x 6" card with a kraft card base and layers of lavender and Maja Design patterned tea cup papers.  I cut a doily for under the teapot and added a tea bag tag hanging out of the top. 


I gave the teapot and sentiment added dimension with 3D foam squares.

"May your cup runneth over"

Next up is this fun 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" card of many layers.  I used CTMH Doodle Designs stamp to create the coffee cup ring background on Pink Paislee patterned paper.


 I matted the wood chip coffee cups and gave them added dimension using 3D foam squares again.

This was a great challenge and I had so much fun creating both cards!

Tutti Designs Madonna & Baby

Good morning Tutti friends!
We're more than half way through July and it's never too early to start those Christmas cards.  Tutti Designs newest die release is spectacular and will have you thinking "holidays" no matter what the temperature is outside.  The July release of 33 dies, yes, I said 33, is amazing with images for fall, Halloween and Christmas!

Today, I'm sharing a Christmas card created using Tutti Designs Madonna & Baby, Nesting Stitched Star and Scalloped Stitched Nesting Circles.  
 
Madonna & Baby


The card base is 5" x 10"  Bazzill Bling Prussian Blue cardstock scored and folded to make a 5" x 5" size card.  The Madonna & Baby are cut from white cardstock and the gold foil is the under layer of the card front and the matting and base for the Madonna image and stars.


I created a shaker window with the Madonna & Baby die, transparency, sequins and Nesting Stitched Circles.   Die cut stars, some of them double stacked, are the embellishments.


In this side view, you can see the added dimension to the circle frame and stars.  I love this magnificent Prussian Blue color!!

July Sketch at My Sketch World!

Welcome back Blogger friends!

Today, I'm happy to share a card created using the July sketch from My Sketch World.  After a five year hiatus, Lucy is back for the second month with sketches to inspire your scrapping Mojo!  My Sketch World has a blog and Facebook page.  Stop by the blog and grab a MSW blinkie for your blog sidebar.  Join the MSW Facebook page and play along with the monthly sketch challenge!

Here's the July sketch...


And, here's my card...


The Graphic 45 Floral Shoppe papers were perfect for this card.  I love the envelope pocket and decided to add a packet of flower seeds in with the tag. The envelope is embellished with two different pieces of ecru trim and a foliage die while the seed packet is trimmed with the same foliage and a handmade foamiran flower.

Best Wishes!!

Happy Monday Blogger friends!
 
Today, I'm sharing some Tutti Designs July inspiration with you!  We've celebrated graduations, Father's Day and I'm sure a wedding among our families and friends.
 
 
"Best Wishes"


 Layers and layers...my favorite things to add to cards.


The white 5" x 6 1/8" card base has two layers of patterned paper matting the white Lily Heart Panel.  I cut the focal heart from the back piece of matting since it would not show.



I love the lattice design on this Lily Heart Panel and the Garden Trellis matched it perfectly.   The trellis background was cut using the Nesting Stitched Rectangles.


I adhered the Garden Arbour to the trellis and added foam tape to the back for dimension. 


The focal heart, cut with a Nesting Stitched Heart, made a great background for the sentiment, "Best Wishes".  I adhered the trellis panel to the card base and added pearls for embellishment.
