You find all the details on how to add your card/project
HERE and read about all the wonderful Sponsors

Today I have a little gift idea for you.
It is not my own, I found it on pinterest HERE.
For the project I used:
* Stampin'Up! Coffee Caffee dies and papers
    *  Michael Strong's mini cloisonné heart stamp.

The cup and sleeves are cut out with the Coffee Caffee 
thinlits and adding a bit of brown in all around.
The leaves are cut out of the matching design paper
that go with this Stampin'Up! set.
The heart is by Michael Strong,
because I love coffee so much!
Inside the Box I added some chocolate coffee beans.
I made a tiny cellophane bag out of a bigger one.

The little tag on the bag is cut with the tiny die that
comes with the set and have a handwritten wish on it.

Thank you very much for visiting my blog

Have a latte creative day!

Here is my first card (I love to post something
every day of the hop) with papers, sentiment

on the card. Now with the stencil and blue ink
I colored the background.

Club Scrap December card sletch

Today I share with you my card for the
card challenge on the 

Here you see the sketch.

As I noticed a lot of cars with trees on top this year 
on cards, I looked through my stamps to see if I could
find some to make this too. Well I did. I found a car
with the National Park stamps and in combination with 
the Joyful wooden stamp from way back, I had a perfect
combination. I stamped the wooden stamp in green and 
blue and colored the tree with the same green ink.

The background is stamped with a snowflake from the 
unmounted rubber stamp sheet Joyful (2009).
Binding it with the red/white baker's twine the front
panel was finished. 

The base of the card is paper from the Club Scrap
 November Scandinavian kit and the green behind
the front panel is from the Tratoria kit.
Inside the sentiment is also from the Joyful
UM rubber stamp sheet.

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!

CAS(E) this sketch #249

Here my sketch card for the

With the special edition of the
Tim Holtz stamps and stencil set from Simon Says Stamp
that I got in Stamptember it is easy to make 
a quick card, starting with the stencil for
the background.

Here you see the sketch from the blog.
It is a retro sketch, using an older one again.
And why not!

After I colored the background with the stencil,
I stamped the deer and the sentiment.
The border is stamped on a seperate piece of
paper and cut out and taped to the card. Then the
red/white baker's twine is added with two jingle
bells to make the card very festive.

Thank you for looking
