My first card today features the new stamp set, One Cup, with coordinating dies, Cuppa Tea Die Set. There are a few sprinkles of the new Signature Sequin Mix and a fun pop of color with the Award Banner Trim Die.

I was inspired by the amazing Deconstructed Sketch #166 by my fellow Diva, Jen Shultz!

COFFEE - O Taste

For the second card in my post today, I combined the Coffee stamp set and coordinating Cuppa Joe Die Set with the Psalm 34:8 Plain Jane.  And...because I LOVE the new Signature Sequin Mix, I must add a few sprinkles to every card!

The Color Throwdown #307 was a bright and cheery one to use for this "pick me up" card!

Carpe Diem - Top Dog Dies


Hey there, Top Dog Dies friends!

How fun are these new dies?!  If you are a dog lover, then you've hit the jackpot with this set from the new August release at Top Dog Dies!


I couldn't use just one or two of the darling dogs...I needed a whole kit ' n caboodle!
The scene I created using some gorgeous Glitz Carpe Diem collection and The Twinery Baker's Twine reminds me of a city dog walker with all of the ritzy pooches walking side by side!


Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!

The Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #233 was my go-to challenge for this "thinking of you" card!


I stamped the large frame/lilies image from Framed Lilies and fussy cut it out to use as the focal panel on my card, then added a coordinating sentiment to the top with a small staple.  There are a few layers of My Mind's Eye Jubilee with a bit of The Twinery Baker's Twine and a few sprinkles of the new Signature Sequin Mix to it off.
