National Coffee Day!

I want to share with you the coffee I like best:
This coffee comes in tubes of 10 capsules 
and just the other day, I realised I could use 
some tubes to make a card for today.
Out of the tubes I cut the coffee cups with a Tim Holtz
Sizzix die.

I made a z-fold card, so I could add lots of cups!
The background is made witgh stamps and stencils
from different comanies.

I took the sentiment "What Else"from the Nespresso site.

Here is the back of the card, where one can write 
a message. 

Thank you for looking,
enjoy your coffee,
stay safe and
keep crafting!

September Zoom Class with Michael Strong

Last night I was in a zoom class given by Michael Strong.
For him it was his morning class :-)
We made 6 cards this time. The 6th was a fun extra card!!

Here you see all the cards we made. They were fun folded cards
and below i show you the folded cards one by one.

This is a kind of lock fold. The hexagon is one of
Michael Strongs rubber stamps.
I made a mistake on the left side, so mine looks
a little different than it was supposed to look.

For this fun fold we received all the sunny paper already cut to size.

Yes, when you take part in the class, you receive all the cards  and all parts you need, ready cut at home! Wonderful!!

For this fold, Mike used  his flower stamp, that was embossed with gold embossing powder.

Great fun fold, looking like a lock fold.
I did some coffee decoration on my own account.
It is National coffee day soon (September 29) and there
will be a Coffeelovers Blog hop!

This was the surprise card. A wonderful Halloween card with: a coffee cup!! Yes, the cup is made into a monster cup by using it upside down. I love this idea.

Here a close up of the cup, with its funny googly eyes, strips of hair and yellow teeth.

And this is the last card. On the right you see the card we made in class
and on the left you see a card I made from this idea.

Another coffee idea. You find Hetty's coffee cup rubber stamp HERE.
I used a coffee bean embossing folder.
The coffee rings are a wooden stamp from Club Scrap.
The steam stamp comes with the coffee stamp in a set.

The sentiment is by Verve Stamps.

So would you like to participate in one of Michael Strong's
zoom classes? Well, the next one is on October 24.
You can send Mike an email:

Bugaboo Digital Stamps: Friday Freebie

Hello Crafty Friends!

Here we are with another fun FREEBIE on the

It is Ruby Chocolate - Do Not Disturb
and you find here HERE.

I had this cute design paper lying around. Everytime I touched it, but 
had not used it. This image was perfect to cut the paper up and use
it for a card. So I printed the image and the sentiment and colored
it with Stampin'Blends.
I had these golden corner stickers and I think after adding these,
the card looked very elegant.

Thank you for looking,
stay safe and
keep crafting.

Honey Gift treat

I found some lovely small honey jars that are a 
perfect gift for Rosh Hashanah with an apple.

For on the Jewish New Year we eat an apple with honey
to wish each other a sweet New Year.

It is easy to make, here are the instructions:
I made two so you see here two of each.
For one treat box you need a piece of cardstock of
2x 11 inch and a piece of 4x4 inch.
You can decorate or stamp directly on the cardstock
or use some design paper, like I choose to do here.

We start by scoring the  4x4 piece on each side by 1 inch.

Next we cut the corner square so we can make it into a box.

Glue the corners and you can even add some design papers 
on 2 sides opposite each other on the box.

Take the long strip and scor at 4,5 inch and 6,5 inch.

 For top and bottom of the strip, I used  this topper punch
by Stampin'Up!. I also cut some design paper and used
both sides.

Put the box inside the strip and fold on the score lines.
Glue or tape the bottom to the strip.
I also taped the sides of the box to the front and the back.
I found these mini honey jars for my treat bag
and made the box to fit them.
I added the honey jars inside.

Even my grandson liked to make one.

Coloring and cutting
and adding the images with stapples to the strip.

Her the bacg of the treat box.

For my box I used some stamps, that my friend Donna
made for me by special request. They are not for
sale anywhere: a big and small apple and the honey jar.

The Hebrew sentiment is by Zum Gali Gali.

Thank you so much for looking,
stay safe and'
keep crafting.
