Snow, snow,!

This cute little snowman sticker was so perfect to add to this tag I made with the curvy corner trio punch.  He brings so much joy to this card!  Lost lagoon, old olive and pool party and such a nice trio of wintery colors.  Spread some JOY today!

Mocha Mojo Monday 415

Today I played along with the Mojo Monday Sketch 415

If you know me even just a little bit you know I love COFFEE!!!  Especially my white chocolate and peppermint mochas from Starbucks!  So I just had to play with this new coffee cup die I got along with this fun coffee bean embossing folder.  I stamped the coffee beans in chocolate chip ink on the very vanilla cotton ribbon and sponged a little chocolate chip on the raised beans.  The sentiment comes from the retired stamp set Perfect Blend from Stampin Up!

Sprinkles of Life - GDP002

Today I played along with the Global Design Project 002 Sketch

I used the Sprinkles of Life stamp set from Stampin' Up! to portray this fun fall card showing the pile of leaves under the tree.  I used the Into The Woods DS Paper from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog and stamped the Hardwood stamp in Crumb Cake ink, then ran the piece of paper through the Wood Grain Embossing Folder and sponged Soft Suede ink over the wood grain for added texture.  Thanks for stopping by to check out this weeks design.
