We are all super excited to be celebrating Little Acres 2nd birthday bash!! 
There are  two $10.00 gift certificates to win and many amazing cards to inspire you with their newest set
Prizes will be announced on Friday, April 20th


Can you believe how cute this little mouse is, looking up are the stars, missing someone? I've personally done this with a far away friend!
 I had to use the galaxy technique for this sentiment ..
I used Tim Holtz distress inks. Any combination of colors you want to use. I watched a 7 minute video on YouTube, by TheCraftBunny, you can watch it HERE  
She also dipped her fingers in water, and flicked the dried inks! I think it really adds to this technique!! So much fun!! 
Here is a link so you can start at the beginning over at
Little Acres Creations

Coffee Loving Cardmakers ~ April

Welcome back to
What's Brewin; From Robyn's Nest
for my April blog post with Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog!
I am so happy to share my card with you all this month! 
I have been a busy blogger lately, but loving it!! 

For this card, I went to my K&Company paper packs for some inspiration! 
Then, I went thought my ever growing
Unity Stamp Co stamps. 
I have just recently bought this tea bag stamp called
 Cup Of Tea. <<You can find it with this link in red :) 
I water colored the stamped image with my Arteza water color pens.
I mounted it on some Close to Cocoa cs from SU! after cutting it out with a die. 
Then, I used velum to cut out the flourish die and some tiny hearts..
the small rose at the bottom right was a gift from a friend,....
I think the font on the sentiment is so pretty <3 
I hope you like my card. I have so much fun making it.  
Please leave a comment and let me know how I'm doing! 
I love reading and responding to them!

Friends of Unity~ April Showers

Hey there!!
Welcome back to Friends of Unity, a monthly Blog Hop featuring Unity Stamp Company stamps and our love of them! 
I hope you came here to me from Dawn Fields blog
I am last on the list this month!! 
If you'd like to start at the beginning, the click here to go to Amber's blog!!
This month we decided to use the theme
"April Showers"
Here is what I made using Harmony Girl,
by Angie Blom
I have been collecting Angie's Girls for over 10 years.
Truth be told, I don't remember which Angie I bought first, but I do know I was hooked!! LOL
ok, onto this card

 But first, I wanted to say...
I LOVE this sentiment

For the card, I used Island Indigo cs as my base.
Then I went through my K&Co cs, and found this beautiful pattern paper. 
I stamped Harmony Girl on plain white cs,
then used Creamy Caramel craft ink from SU! around the edges.
Then mounted her to a scrap piece of
Creamy Caramel cs. 
Colored her with Copics 
I added some "dew drops" for a rain look 
That is pretty much it. The cardstock (cs) is so busy, that I didn't feel the card needed many embellishments.. 

Well, I hope you enjoyed the Hop this month! 
Please leave us a comment along the way to let us know if you enjoy our cards! 
Someone is having a giveaway this month, so be sure to comment if you want a chance to win!! 

On a side note~ I like to thank Crystal Minkler for creating us all, this amazing watermark! She worked very hard on them, and we all appreciate her so much!! MUAHH

Coffee Loving Cardmakers Collaboration Hop with a2zscrapbooking

I am IN LOVE with this amazing digital set called, Hug in a Mug
I used the stacked cups and sentiment Let's catch up over coffee! 
Papertrey Ink cardstock, and printed paper.
Scalloped edge die is also from PTI...
Some sheer ribbon, and a few Prima tiny flowers were the perfect embellishments to compliment this pretty card! 

For this one, I used a stencil sent to me by my sweet
friend Crystal Minkler.
It is from Tim  Holtz. Coffee rings and splotches were my base.
Then I colored the ice coffee cups, and added the ice cubes here and there.
Pretty Pink Posh sequins, and some twine from PTI..

Well that's it for me!

Coffee Loving Cardmakers

Hey there, and welcome back :)
When I saw this digital set posted in the Coffee Loving Papercrafters Facebook group,
by Julee Tillman I knew I had to have it! I actually bought both St. Patrick's Day sets that they have! I just love this set!! 
 I used Wild Wasabi from SU! black and white for the layers.
Cuttlebug embossing folder, and a cute Shamrock sticker pack that also included the green bling. Sometimes a pack of stickers is all you need ;) 

I hope you like my quick, and easy card! 
if you'd like to buy this digital set called Irish Coffee, and take a look at the others you won't be disappointed! I LOVE all their sets!!

Hey there, and Happy Valentine's Day!!
Thank you for stopping by my blog today! 
I cannot tell you how much I love being a part of
Coffee Loving Cardmakers and Coffee Loving Papercrafters on Facebook! I am especially excited because today is my day on the blog, and Valentine's Day as well!!
As you all know by now, I am a huge fan of Unity Stamp Company. I love their deep etched red rubber cling stamps! No other company compares to them in my humble opinion ;)

For this card, I started with Real Red cardstock from SU!
I then used a HUGE heart shaped doily

I stamped this image  Love To Go on white cardstock, then colored the hearts with my Copics.. I did a little shading on the cup with C-1,.. you can juuust see it..
The sentiment is from Hampton Art (PS.0311)

How about this tiny "Love letter" ?? 
I've had this envelope punch for as long as I have been papercrafting! 
I use a cluster of Prima flowers, and added the little self stick bling to the centers, and finally, I used the wide satin ribbon with pretty red hearts to tie the card together. The ribbon is a "belly band" and slides off to open the card!
How do you like those Lips?? LOL.. it's a brad I had, and I cut the prongs off, then hot glued it to the knot...

Well, that's my February card for Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog
Let me know what you think of my card in the comment section! I look forward to reading it! 
I hope you have a happy Valentine's Day
