2022 Fall Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

I *may* be a weirdo here but I don't like coffee. 😮 I know, I know, it's shocking. I do LOVE the way it smells, tho! But, I do still have a caffeinated vice....BUBBLE TEA! I love all things Bubble Tea...Thai Milk Tea, Honey Oolong With Mango, Taro Milk Tea, Refreshing Green Teas of all kinds. I could go on and on and on. Lol. I will save you my very extensive list. I know where almost every Bubble Tea shop in our area is. Yes, I have a problem. When one loves all things Bubble Tea & one must own every brand of stamp that has a Bubble Tea stamp of some kind. I pretty much have them all but I'm sure that I am missing one somewhere. Lol.

Of course, when Artful Angel launched our own line of stamps earlier this year, one of the first sets on my list was a Bubble Tea set. I knew that I needed just the right artist for this set. I love the way that Sandy Boone from Three Room Studio draws people. I carry several of her stamps in the Artful Angel shop so I took a chance and asked her if she'd be willing draw a Bubble Tea set for Artful Angel. She agreed & Bubble Tea Buddies was part of our July Release! I hope you love this card & this set as much as I do!!

Artful Angel is excited to be a sponsor for this year's Fall Winter Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!! Today through midnight on November 18, use the code CAFFEINATED and get 10% off your order (excludes Copic Markers, Copic Club, & Clearance)!!

For this card I used a card front I had made from Kendra's Card Challenge #7. I think it worked perfectly with this image & the colors were nearly a perfect match! If you haven't checked out Kendra's Card Challenge, I strongly encourage you to do so! It's a great way to have some card fronts done & ready to go. One of these quarters, I will actually get all the cards done in time to participate & possibly win a prize. But, for now, it allows me some beautiful card fronts ready to be turned into cards at a moments notice!!

Halloween Card!!

 

Ghosts!!!



Look at these GHOSTS they are having so much fun.  This set is a must have in my books.  This set is by C.C Designs and is available currently in the shop..Just click the link.  

Details..Well I made a slim line card so I could use a couple of the Images from this set.  I did some die cutting ok maybe lots of die cutting.  I stamped my images onto white card stock with black ink.  I then colored them up with Prisma Pencils!! I just love how this card turned out.  Have a great day and try and have some crafty time.

8 Crazy Nights…Celebrating Hanukkah!

Hello! I want to share this gorgeous card that I made using our new 8 Crazy Nights Sentiments stamp set & the Festival Of Lights paper pack from PhotoPlay. I followed a tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers to make this great card! I made few "alterations" to their design (not necessarily on purpose lol). I had a blast making this card! It was so fun to use all this fun ribbon!

Extra Chromie-Bringing Awareness To Down syndrome

Here are two birthday cards that I made with one of our new sets from August Release! It's called Extra Chromie

This set has been in my head for quite some time & I am so excited with how it came out! My inspiration is my sweet friend, Lucy. Lucy is the daughter of my best friend, Michelle, from my middle school years in a small town in rural Nebraska. The image of the two hands is actually Lucy & her mom's hands! 

I just cannot tell you how much I love this set!! It makes my heart happy! And, through August 31st, 15% of the sales of this set will be donated to Cornerstone Ranch, a working ranch here in McKinney, Texas for those with special needs. Cornerstone Ranch also has a Day Program. I can't wait to take them a check!

October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month. This set was created with the intention of encouraging our friends with Down syndrome and bringing awareness. Lucy is a special friend who loves life & is full of smiles. We love her & the light that she brings to her family & her friends! We are thankful to have her in our lives!




Let your creativity take flight!

Flowers come together with THANK YOU notes



 Day #4 of Artful Angel's Big Thanks set. Big Sentiments like these THANK(S) stamps from Artful Angel are the perfect match to cards with floral die-cuts. Cards with floral die-cuts as the main or a secondary focal point are all the rave lately.  BIG sentiments help ground the diecuts and give an extra punch to the card.


Super simple card but what makes this card is that HUGE embossing THANK YOU! I want you to notice that I folded one of the flowers in half to make it look like it's facing sideways. Small changes like that on your cards make a big difference. 

My second card is another floral die-cut card with the BIG THANKS set, complementing both the doily and the die-cuts. The golden bling was the final touch for this card.



I really hope you have enjoyed these 4 days of inspiration showcasing the Artful Angel's Big Thanks set!

Rainbow BIG THANKS and more Medallions!



 Day #3 of Artful Angel's Big Thanks set. You might recognize the pattern paper from day one, I had some leftovers, enough to cut this medallion! This card is an OOPSY! card. Have you ever glued your focal image to the wrong side of the card? That's what I did on this one! I tried prying it open since I had used liquid glue, but it left a mark. I kept pushing forward and that is how this background became.

I think in this shot of the card, you can see better the "vanilla" colored polka-dots that I originally stamped. Since now the medallion was on the bottom because of my error, I doodled in black and added bling to balance the card out.

My second card is an image to PRIDE MONTH! I wanted to do a rainbow-colored card. I used the little butterfly Artful Angel's Adventure Awaits set.  Yes, I cut out the butterfly by itself for easy stamping.


Come and join me tomorrow for DAY #4 of more ways to use the Artful Angel's Big Thanks set!

SHINY, BIG THANKS Inspiration

 



Day #2 of Artful Angel's Big Thanks set. I love balloons!  They just make me happy! For this card, I used The Greeting Farm Hello Bestie and Gerda's You lift me up. Heat embossed in gold The BIG THANK + S and tied the balloons to the sentiment.  I love that this set allows you to make THANK YOU or THANKS by adding the S!  I think that is brilliant!

I truly love this card! It is one of those ideas that the end result is just as you imagined it. In this shot, you can see how much the gold shines on this card including the bling!  Making the balloons have rainbow colors make it so it is a harmonious look.

Come and join me tomorrow for DAY #3 of more ways to use the Artful Angel's Big Thanks set!
