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..

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!

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

February 2108 Friends of Unity Blog Hop

Welcome back to the Friends of Unity Blog Hop!!
I am so happy you are here!! 

For this months card I used my very favorite color combo, kraft and red :) 
My favorite cardstock is from Papertrey Ink! 
I used Unity Stamp Company's
This is an awesome stamp for any occasion. Love of coffee, Valentine's Day, a gift card holder to a loved one.. the possibilities are many.
I started out by stamping the image with red ink onto kraft cardstock, then using Gina Marie's Wonky Stitch dies I cut it out. I used  kraft ink to distress the edges of all the paper I used.
I decided to add a little love letter using my EK Success envelope punch and more coordinating designer paper from PTI~ it turned out so cute, and the sentiment that comes with the stamp set fit perfectly onto my little die cut "piece of paper"  ;) 
I used the same paper for the banner strips too.
The twine is from... you guessed it PTI~ LOL  I love their stuff
The swirly heart is from Sizzix # 660222
This sweet bow tie paper clip is from Simon Says Stamp, and lastly I used the Sweetheart Mix sequins from Pretty Pink Posh....

I sure hope you are Hopping along with use! We may be a small group, but we seriously LOVE Unity Stamp Company so much!

I really love this set of  Fancy Frame Dies <3 
I use them all the time, from the largest, where I use it on this card, to one of their smaller ones in the same set, that I stamped my sentiment on. 

For this card I started off using Unity Stamp Co Kit of the Month December 2017 coffee cup background. I heat embossed it onto PTI kraft cardstock, then cut it using CDD die.
I am really LOVING this "new to me" crinkle ribbon by D.L. Art.
This is from their Vintage Christmas bundle.. It's a cranberry color, and just beautiful to work with!!

Coffee Loving Cardmakers 

Hey there  :) 
Welcome to my blog !! 
I am so happy to share this sweet card with you this week!!
Being a part of Coffee Loving Papercrafters Facebook group, and Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog is so amazing for me!!
I never thought in a million years I'd be asked to take part with such talented women. I am still pinching myself, if I'm being honest.
I will be posting a card, one Wednesday a month,and this is my January card.
I really hope you like it  :) 

Let's chat about this card for a moment, ok. 
This sweet girl is from Unity Stamp Company's  new line called Planner Girls.
They are smaller than their Angie's Girl stamps, but as you know, Unity doesn't make small stamps-EVER! LoL 
She doesn't have a name like the Angie's, but you can find her by clicking here> Stay Cozy
I started out stamping her with Memento Black ink, colored her in with Copics. 
Then I used Craftin' Desert Divas (<link) Fancy Frame Dies to cut her out. I used Papertrey Ink white cardstock as my base, then grabbed a piece of printed cardstock, too.
I used Stampin' Up! Pool Party for the blue layer, and the little piece for the sentiment.
The sentiment is also from Unity, from the Itty Bitty line, called Cup of Love.
I used pink embossing powder on it :) 
I don't know if you can see it, but under the top, white layer and over all the other layers, I used a piece glitter tulle to cover the entire card, and trimmed it some. I am going to so sad when I run out of that tulle. I bought it and 6 other glitter colors at JoAnn's 4 years ago, and I have not seen it since then  :( 

This sticker is so amazing!
It is from Essentials (Sandy Lion) 
It was a gift to me from my friend Eileen Mathys for Christmas!
I just love it, and I will be buying more of them :) 

This pretty little flower came with the same sticker set!! Too cute  :) 

Well, that's my card for this month! I hope you like it, too.
I can't wait for next month!
Valentine's Day!
I already have an idea spinning around in my head!! 
See you then  ;)

Friends of Unity Blog Hop January 2018

Hey there !! 
Welcome the second Friends of Unity Blog Hop!! 
I am so happy you stopped by :) 
Be sure to hop along with us, because one of us is having a very nice giveaway of Unity stamps...I wonder who it could be?? LOL 

For this months card, we went with a Winter theme.
I chose Warm Winter Comforts ... 
I just love this little guy so much! 
I started by stamping him on PTI cardstock, then coloring him with a combination of different markers ~ Copic, and Distress Markers by Ranger, (Tim Holtz)
Then I used Kat Scrappiness Fancy scalloped rectangle dies to cut out the image~ 
My background layer is literally a piece of white cardstock I smooshed around in some SU! Pool Party ink, that  I spritzed some water on.. it looked pretty good so I saved it. It worked well with this image, and the colors I used. 
I stamped the sentiment that comes with him onto a scrap piece of PTI patterned cardstock then used a punch from SU! to punch it out. 
I used a boarder die from Tim Holtz die set I have to add some more color.
The snowflakes are stickers, and there in the top right side, I added some washi. It didn't match the white as much as I wanted it to, but I still liked it ;) 
I added some twine, to finish it off.
I am pretty happy with how this one turned out!!
I hope you like it too... 
Thanks, for stopping by, and I look forward to your comments 
Please check out the other ladies Hopping with me today!
Don't forget the giveaway!!  ;)
