Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop ( Skipping Stones Design )

Hi everyone, I am Lisa and what a joy it is to be a part of the Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop.  When thinking about making a card for this bloghop I wanted it to be something more and something that could be a gift and not just a card. So after thinking long and hard I figured I would do a card that is a Christmas ornament with a message to Santa.  I had so much fun trying to figure out how to do this and I guess what I did was just started so here we go.


Used Christmas Tree Chip Board

I colored this with Spectrum Noir Markers
Then I colored with Spectrum Noir Sparkle Markers
I used Skipping Stones Design Coffee Stamp
The Sentiment say A Coffee day keeps the grumpy away.
I used Diesire Traditional Bauble Base  for the ornament.

I colored with Spectrum Noir Markers
Colored the Coffee Cup
Cut out the Ornament

I then glued everything together.

For the Card I used a Black base of regular Card Stock 8 x 11.50 Scored down the center which makes the card 8 x 5.50

I then added some Velcro to the back of the ornament

I used my Cricut to write Merry Christmas on the front of the Card with a Gold Cricut Marker
I then added the attached the ornament to the card.

I hope you enjoyed seeing how I made this Christmas Card / Christmas Ornament, if you have any questions please let me know.  Hope you have a safe and Merry Christmas and Happy Crafting.

Happy Thanksgiving ( A&M Memories ) November 11, 2017

Hi everyone and welcome back, I am Lisa, I hope everyone is doing well and getting ready for Turkey Day?  I have made this wonderful Happy Thanksgiving Card for your enjoyment.

With this card I used my Cricut Explore Air 2.  It is very easy to upload your digital stamps into the Cricut This is the layout that I created for this card.  I will give you a little hint, it is easier to color your  digital image before you cut it with the Cricut.  I colored the Pilgrim with Spectrum Noir Alcohol markers I also used some Spectrum Noir Sparkle Markers for her hair, eyes, and the Turkey as you can see below. I have choosen this dark yellow card stock for the background to the leaf card stock. I used Foam Tape to hold all the layers together.  I had some fall ribbon and cord that I added to the leaf layer and wrapped it around the back so you could not see the ends.  With the cord I put a little  Open knot for decoration.

"Hebrews" Coffee Card ( Skipping Stones Design ) Oct 16th Blog Hop

Hi everyone and welcome to Skipping Stones Design's October blog hop.  For my card I have decided to use the Coffee stamp #2.  I colored the coffee cup with Spectrum Noir Alcohol markers.  This is a Digi stamp so after printing I did wait 24hr before coloring with the Alcohol markers to make sure the ink is completely dry, so I do not have any mixing of the printer ink with the alcohol marker colors.  I had a great time creating this card.  Please scroll down for pictures, supplies (  link's ),  a how toooooo, and a tutorial at the end.  Make sure you visit the links below to see other cards made by Skipping Stones Design Team.  Please make sure to leave a comments on everyones creations, let them know how much you like the designs they have created.

Elf Queen Sparkle / Swirl with Happiness ( A&M Memories ) Video

Hi everyone and welcome back, I am Lisa hope all is well.  I have two cards to share with you.  Both cards are done with A&M Memories stamps.  I did a coloring video on the Elf Queen Sparkle card, so I could share a couple of my techniques.  These tips are what I found work for me.  Crafters Companion Smooth Card Stock

This is a cut outs of a gift with gems inside to make it a shaker.  I did not like that the burlap did not have any color so I used the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Markers to give it a little color.

This is the base card measures 4 x 5 1/2.
This is the top layer of the card this measures 3.75 x 5.25., and I used foam tape to adhere to the base of the card.

This is the gift with the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Markers.
This is the washi tape I used for additional color to the card.

I added the sentiment to the card and it had some hang over on the card, just cut so that it is even with the card.
Adhere the stamp and the gift box to the card.
