Your a special blend...

Today I am linking up a card for Helen's challenge for the World Cardmaking Day Celebration 2017.  She is wanting to see red, orange and brown used.  Here is my card.

I used Joy Clair's stamp set called Coffee Lovers.  I stamped the cup and sentiment with Stazon Timber Brown.  Then I used my watercolors to color in the cup sleeve (red), I added a wash of orange color under the cup and over the sentiment.

One Cool Chick

It's National World Cardmaking Day 2017, Yay!  As a card maker I wanted to post a quick post of my card for today.  I used Power Poppy's Succulent Singles. 

I stamped the succulents onto some watercolor paper.  Then used my Zig Clean Color Markers to color those beauties in.  They give such wonderful pops of color.  I then layered the image onto some kraft card stock and added some subtle colored dots to my sentiment and then stapled that to my image.

Your so sweet

I was needing a card for a friend to thank her for some wonderful craft supplies and goodies she recently sent me.  So I decided to create a card and use a beautiful digi from Power Poppy.  For their monthly challenge of September they are wanting to see creations made using Kraft Paper.  Here is their graphic and my card.

I printed the lovely "Sunflower Power" and the sentiment is from the digi "Sweet Simple Things".
I colored in the image with colored pencils and layered it onto some yellow, kraft and orange cardstock.   Then I fussy cut out the sunflower bud and layered it with pop dots more on on top and off set from that gorgeous big bloom.  I added the sentiment and trimmed it with  some rose gold Stickles.  It's the perfect fall sparkle.  And then tied some twine with a little metallic copper sparkle in it.

Everything Nice

I have to admit that one of my favorite stamp companies is Unity.  They just have such a great array of fun stamps that speak to my girly side and love of coffee.  This image is one of their newest and I love it.  I have seen it used lots of different ways for the hop, this is my take on it. 

I colored it in with colored pencils and added a different sentiment from another one of their To Go Cups.  Then added some Rose Gold Stickles.

One Cup Shaker

I am so excited to share a fun shaker that I worked on.  For this one I used the Jillibean die cut and cup that coordinates. 

The paper is double sided so I used the floral on the front and the backside which is a white wood grain on the inside of the shaker and for the sentiment.
