Coffee Cards with the Frappe Shake die

Coffee, coffee and more coffee! It’s Coffee Cards for todays post. I love the Frappe Shake Die from Honeybee stamps. I altered the cup just a bit and made these adorable regular coffee cup cards.

Getting more use out of a die that you invested in is always a PLUS. This die is no exception. You can see my original post that uses the Frappe Shake die in its original form here. Let’s get right to the video tutorial:

Now that you know how to make the coffee cards, lets take a closer look at the designs. My favorite is the Llama Latte! (the design is cased from Amy Tsuruta). This uses the Follow your heart 6×6 paper pack, No-Prob llama stamps and the Perfect Blend.

Valentine’s Card in a box and a Blog Hop

I absolutely the LOVE the WOW factor of a card in a box. The first one I made was almost 5 years ago for my sons Carson’s 14th birthday. Time to share how easy it is! Are you ready for a fun monster Valentine card in a box? And a Blog Hop? Today you get both!

First lets take a peek at the card:

Stamp with Jill, Card in a Box Valentine card

Of course I am using the “Eyes on You” stamp set. So much fun these monsters. Even though these were for Halloween, I knew they would be perfect for Valentines and of course birthdays too! Totally adorable!

Lets get right to the Card in a box video tutorial:

It is important to see the card in a box closed. This is the front. all the fun elements are hidden so the wow factor when the card is open is a surprise!

And the back of the card is where I like to put the message. Another key point this easily fits into and A2 envelope.

Most important you need card in a box specs!

Two 4 x 6 pieces of card stock. Scored on the long side at 2″, turn and score at 2 and 5-1/2. Two pieces of 1 x 5 card stock, scored at 3/4 on both ends. Follow your heart printed paper: Four pieces 1-3/4 x 1-3/4, Two pieces 3-1/4 x 1-3/4, One piece 3-1/4 x 3-3/4. Plus one piece of whip cream 3-1/4 x 3-3/4 for the back of the box.

Now its time for the Blog Hop:

Equally important are the supplies I have used. Especially if you need to add some Monsters to your collection.


So Very Plaid Indeed

Happy Plaids that is. This is the Happy Plaids stamp set from Concord and 9th. What a fun tool this is and the end result is just gorgeous!

Pink and gray is soooooooo pretty! I kept these cards pretty simple since the main focus is the plaid. To make this particular pattern, I relied on my Tim Holtz platform to help me in two ways:  positioning the stamps straight, and for “almost” even spacing. Once my background was stamped, I moved onto creating pretty cards with them. Check out my Video Tutorial here:

The versatile Happy Plaids stamp set works perfectly to create a plaid background. Not only is it designed to cover an entire card front, but allows you to also use it diagonally and you can also make stripes. WOW!

Coffee cards are always fun! Coffee First Die set paired with the Sentiment from MFT called Stay Cool. LOVE!!

Recipe for happiness from MFT. Many of you know my husband is the cook around here so this guy is just perfect! And the sentiments in this set are so cute!

Finally the Spellbinders Small die of the month for December. Another fun die set to have in my collection.

Today I am sharing with you the cutest die cut card I have! It’s the Honey Bee Stamps Frappe Shake Card. Oh my goodness it was love at first sight. Who loves Frappuccinos? Me!!! and my pups love the puppuccinos!

Honey Bee Stamps Frappe Shake Valentine Card with Snow Buddies, Stamp With Jill

Of course I paired the Frappe Shake card with the Snow Buddies. Both are Frozen!

The best way to share this Honey Bee Stamps Frappe Shake Card is to create a card in a video tutorial. Check it out:

A Winter Birthday Sketch Challenge

How fun is this? I love the pink and oatmeal cookie color combo and the Winter Wishes card kit 6 x 6 paper pack!

Created this birthday card by following the Freshly made Sketch Challenge #369. I have really enjoyed playing with these the last few weeks. This is the sketch:

And here are the Supplies. The Deer head and the pink sparkly washi tape are embellishments from the December Spellbinders card kit. Being that you can’t purchase them today, if it becomes available I will add a link. The rest of the Supplies are here:


Re-Stock Your Birthday Card Stash

I need more birthday cards! I gifted big boxes of handmade cards this holiday season so I could make room for more. The one theme I need more of is birthday cards. Check out these beauties!

I found another treasure on the Spellbinders website. The Nestabilities Fancy Edged Rectangles Etched Dies. WOW. on Sale now for ONLY $11.99 (I love a good deal!) You can see another card using the fancy edged rectangles HERE.

Check out my video tutorial to show you how quickly you can make a pile of these to have in your stash!

This Birthday card is so striking with the black sparkle tape and the Good Life Paper. As a matter of fact, this card is my favorite of the group and the paper one of my favorite FSJ paper packs.

The real focus of this card is the scalloped rectangle. Die cut a bunch of scalloped rectangles and flowers, pick your pretty papers, grab some matching card stock and inks and you are ready to go.

This little flower and leaf die is from the December Small Die of the Month club. (I will add the link if and when it becomes available.) You can easily use and small die that you have in your stash or use the Spring Kisses flowers and leaves right out of the package. (link below)

Surprisingly the cards all look significantly different when you change the paper and the colors. This layout works best with smaller floral (or other) printed paper.

Finally, on this last card I changed the layout slightly with a larger piece of DSP, no washi tape and 1 less layer of white.

Measurements:

Card base: 8-1/2 x 5-1/2, White: 4 x 5-1/4, Printed paper: 3-7/8 x 5-1/8. White panel on the inside of the cards is 4 x 5-1/4

Last card measurements: Card base: 8-1/2 x 5-1/2, Printed paper 5-1/2 x 3. matching strip of cardstock 1/2 x 5-1/2.
