Butterflies & Caffeine -- Blog Hop at Coffee Loving Cardmakers

http://coffeelovingcardmakers.com/2020/05/2020-spring-summer-coffee-lovers-blog-hop/
It's that time again: the Spring/Summer Blog Hop at the Coffee Loving Cardmakers! I always enjoy playing along.

I've been cleaning out my stash, and found this sweet coffee cup die-cut sentiment (Heartfelt Creations, Stampin' Up!) so I made a shaker card with my favorite kawaii coffee, woodgrain, and yellow-patterned papers, and coffee-scented washi tape. I filled the shaker with die-cut coffee beans (Elizabeth Crafts) and tiny butterflies (Scraps of Love).




Many thanks to all who make this Blog Hop possible!

Social Media Wisdom -- Humor at International Art & Soul

This fortnight at the International Art & Soul Challenge our theme is Humorous.

This is one of my favorite themes, I like a good giggle on a card! I used emoji dies (Sizzix) and papers, plus some fun papers from my stash; the shaker is filled with sequins & tiny scissors (!) from Spiegelmom Scraps; I fussy-cut the troll (Scraps of Love) and laptop from patterned papers. I generated the sentiment myself using the font Fake Receipt, and cut it with a banner die.



I used a great computer-patterned paper for the inside; it's the same paper I fussy-cut the laptop from.

Wings of Love -- Flowers & Butterflies at International Art & Soul

This fortnight at the International Art & Soul Challenge our theme is Flowers & Butterflies.


I used foam, dies and scrap plastic to make a shaker card. I filled it with a lovely sequin mix from Spiegelmom Scraps. The large butterfly has been in my stash for a long time, and worked just right with this sentiment rubber stamp.

The Bee's Knees -- No Squares/Rectangles at International Art & Soul

This fortnight at the International Art & Soul Challenge our theme is Anything but a Square or Rectangle.

I made a round bee card. The inside says you're the bee's knees.



 I was inspired by these cute bees in one of my son's books!
