Let´s Shop

Hello my Crafty Friends,

You know about my coffee addiction.
I srink Nesprsso coffee and this comes in capsules.
Recently Nespresso redesigned the capsules and the
boxes in wich they come.

So back to cutting up these capules as I have done 
before to make them into flowers to use on my cards
I have a more detailed )with pictures' explanation HERE.

I use these punches and emboss punch to make the flowers.

Here is the finished card with embossed beans in the background.
I used Wendy Vecchi´s Lets Shop stamp set again.
Perfect for adding a gift card if you want.

On the cups I used the decoration of the variety of 
boxes for different tastes.

Here the inside of the card, using the left over scraps.

And of course a fun backside of the card.

For this card I used two sided design paper from my scraps.
On one side i stamped the purse and cut it out. Not using it here
as a gift bag, just stuck it to the background,

The cup was left over from Saturdy´s card!

A close up to the flower made out of the metal from the
coffee capsule. My favorite Vienna Linizio Longo.

Hello Crafty Friends,

 a new stamp set from Wendy Vecchi, so I had to play!!

So for this card I used:
Tim Holtz Salvaged Patina (super new color!!)
Wendy Vecchi Let´s Shop stamp, die and stencil set
Thinlits set Crochet 664178
Thinlits set Funky Foliage 663087

So this set by Wendy Vecchi came with 
stamps, dies and a stencil.
I started by cutting out that cute purse abd decorated
it with the dots stencil. Of course I used the  new
Salvaged Patina distress oxide ink.

For the background I cut this lacy border
to give it a real feminine touch. I used the 
cut out as a template and then I glued it
to the the background. Again with the
new Salvage Patina color. 

To finish the card I added a flower decoration to the bag
 and inside there is a coffee gift card.
Of course it needed a coffee cup (decorated with
the stencil). You know my addiction ;-)

Artsy 2

Good morning Crafty Friends,

Today I have another sample with the 
clear stampset Artsy by

Again I used the Make Art stencil for the background.
The idea of this card is: you start with a blank canvas
and only the basic colors and will turn it into
a work of art. What doe you think?
Should i color these 3 also on the palet or 
leave it blank?

This time I used the paint tube on the back of the card.

Thank you for looking,

More Furry Friends 2

Hello Crafty Friends,

More dog cards today, for i have many ideas in my head,
The set I used is More Furry friends
and you find it on the Funky Fossil Designs site.
The paw print you see on this card is an embossing folder.

This dog was easy coloring ;-)

And another fun stamp on the back of the card.

And with some papers from the first card i made this second on.
The red card and the circle embossing print.
The big dog bone i drew by hand and cut out.
I added  bit of grey ink all around.

You see I also used the Paw Print background again.
No need for printed design paper.

So much fun to use the stamps
on the back of the card.

Thank you for looking,
stay safe
and keep crafting!
