Simon Says Stamp Cold Hands, Warm Heart Blog Hop

Wow. So incredibly thrilled to be joining this talented group of designers to showcase the AMAZING new Simon Says Stamp release, Cold Hands, Warm Heart. These products are all seriously adorable, so be sure to check out all the products in this release as soon as you are done with this inspiring hop!

I have 4 cards for you today. I couldn't stop playing! I hope you enjoy.
Gold with a bright accent color is totally my thing. I decided to hand cut some of the tiny gold trees as part of the shaker card filler to tie it all in. This new tree background is nothing short of amazing and would be equally cool watercolored, too!

Next up, I have a super fun and bright card using the Four Trees Stencils. These are so cute and fun to play with.

This background die is just simply gorgeous in whatever color you die cut it. It is so versatile!

Last up, I have some fun skates for you!

For a chance to win an amazing Simon Says Stamp Goodie Bag full of fun Simon treats, be sure to leave comments at each stop on the hop. The giveaways for the prize pack will close at 1:00pm EST on Friday, October 10, 2014.

Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

Hi! Welcome to my blog. I love coffee. It's true. But I am quite the coffee snob. HA! I only really like a few certain coffee drinks but at home, I drink Dunkin Vanilla with about 4 cups of Coffeemate Vanilla Creamer. You don't want to know how many big jugs of that stuff I go through a month. Eeek!

I created a super fun card for this hop while I was at my stamping retreat. So much fun!
I started with creating a blending background by masking off my Neenah white cardstock with painters tape. I blended Tim Holtz Distress Inks until I achieved the look I was going for. Then, I placed a Tim Holtz stencil over the blended area and dabbed it with a wet baby wipe to pick up the color. I loved how this turned out! The coffee word die is inlaid. The die and bean stamp is from Verve.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and go grab a cuppa! xo


Thank you, dear.
