Happy New Year!

It was a great coffee year 2018, so here a gris of some
of my postings from this year. So how about ending this year
with another coffee card:
With thiscard I say cheers to the New Year
and hope it brings you all what you dream of.

I made the card for the challenge
The background of this card is embossed with the
Stampin'Up! knitted embossing folder. I colored it
with a little brushed corduroy distress oxide ink.
The cups are thinlits by Stampin'Up!, the sleeve
is a bit of  Tim Holtz design paper.
The numbers are rubber stamps by Michael Strong
embossed with gold embossing powder.

This sentiment is an old stamp by Club Scrap
(2006 After Five)

Inside the card I added a Verve Stamps sentiment
(unfortunately this shop closed) and behind the 
sentiment is a piece of embossed paper with the
Tim Holtz coffee cups.

I think this sentiment says it all and hope it counts for
all of you. Wishing you wonderful celebrations and 
see you soon in the next year with more coffee goodness!

Thanks for looking
and health and creativity for 2019!

Sunday Stamps Sketch 194

The last few days of the year are here
and so it is time for some New Year cards.
I have these fun dies from Aliexpress
and they are great for New Year cards.
I used the sketch of the 
Sunday Stamps for my card.

The champagne bottle was cut out of 
green paper. I first wanted to use the 
negative green paper, but than I added the 
gold]\bottle and the white paper behind
it and yes, this was it. Brown/gold bakers twine
around it and some brushed corduroy ink
around the border of the paper.

I stamped and embossed the sentiment
on a piece of kraft paper (same color as the
the card). But it was too empty, so in 
between the words the  glasses were
added and cheers to the New Year!

The sentiment is from Stampin'Up!
(Banners for Christmas).

Thanks for looking.

Wishing you all a wonderful
 and creative New Year.

Caffinated Christmas!

You all know about my coffe addiction, so when I noticed
these beautiful Christmas cups, I had to use it on a card.

I made my card for the
So I used a tiny bit of yellow too!
I was inspired by the design too to make 
my coffee cup!
I started out with my favourite Club Scrap
coffee ring stamp. I made the background with
green and red rings.

To make it a bit more Christmassy I added
some yellow stars with this Tim Holtz stencil
and fossilized amber oxide distress ink.

The background looks like this now.
On top I added the paper coffee cup.
I added the wish, the baker's twine
and some jingle bells.

Next to the Starbucks sign I added extra
stars with foam tape and a tiny red sticky pearl.

Inside the cup I added a spoon (Club Scrap)
with a New Years wish.

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!

Club Scrap: Peace on Earth!

Celebrting Peace on Earth is the most important.
With so much going on in the world, this is what I wish for in 2019!
I made my card inspired by the sketch on the 
I used various of the old papers and an old stampset
called: Wow Holiday! from 2011. This set has a big
collage stamp that is used for my card.
I stamped the image twice. First on white paper
with black embossed and colored with a dotted
stencil and a star stencil. The second time I stamped
the collage stamp on kraft colored paper and embossed
the image with white embossing powder. This last 
image i cut up in strips and fitted them with foam tape
on top of the white image.

For the sentiment I used the celebrate thinlit
and part of one of the sentiments.

If only a card could make this world a little beter.

Thank you for looking
and have a creative Christmas.

Christmas ornaments

Hope all of you have a wonderful time
with your family and friends.

I share with you this Christmas ornament.
You can hang it in your tree and it is decorated on
both sides. The baker's twine is in between the 
two Nonagon images (rubber stamps by
Michael; Strong).

Inside the heart of the stamp I used the Tim Holtz
Tiny Snowglove thinlits and the Tim Holtz
Christmas sentiment stickers.

I add my ornament to the
where they have this Holiday Tic-Tac-Toe.

I started out stamping the Nonagon rubberstamp
and embossed it with silver embossing powder.
Then cut them out by hand with scissors.

As you see the close up of the finished ornaments,
I added tine sticky gemstones for the bling, 
when the ornament is dangling free.

I love the tiny snowglobe, my new favorite.
Behind the globe I added a pice of silver scalloped
circle die cut.

Thank you all for looking
and have a creative Christmas.
