Coffee Lovers Spring/Summer Blog Hop

 Hello! I'm excited to be joining in with the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop with Lil' Inker Designs. It's always such a great time and LOTS of prizes up for grabs. So come play along. 

I am so super excited to show off a sneak peek of the awesome new coffee products being released on June 11.


I wanted to make a bright and sunny card to show off these awesome new stamps and dies. I first cut out the mug and all it's details with the Coffee Talk 2 Dies. I stamped a sentiment from the GIANT new set called Coffee Talk 2 Stamps. Can we talk about that font??? Isn't this one great??  I love it and the whole set has a mix of fonts and styles you will love, too. It's so fun. I layered them on top of the Wrappers Delight-Sunburst die




That's it from me today. Be sure to stop by the Coffee Lovers Blog AND the LID Blog to see what Laura and a few of our team members have done. pssst.....she's giving away a $25 gift certifcate. 
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend. 
Hugs, Lisa

Color Throwdown 494-friendship


Hello, Color Throwdown fans! It's Amy here with you as this week's host, and I've chosen a Memorial Day weekend theme for you to play with using the colors red, white and blue. I hope you are inspired by the above graphic and find a little time to get inky over the long holiday weekend. 

If you upload to a public gallery, please use the key words CTD494, and please use #ctd494 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites. Also, when linking up your card using the linky tool at the bottom of this post, please use a direct link to your specific post, not a generic link to your blog.  All of the "rules" are in the right sidebar, so check them out to be sure.  And no digital designs--only digital images that are printed off and colored will be allowed. Totally digital designs will be removed from the link up.

I went with soft and subtle for today's card. I adore the color Mist from Reverse Confetti and I inked up the floral block from the recently released Pattern Blocks. I stamped it in Mist ink onto a Premium Polar white card stock panel that was cut with the Kindness Cards Confetti Cuts

I then stamped the sentiment in Midnight ink at the top of the panel and tied on some red twine around the bottom. I finished the card by popping up the panel with some foam dimensions. 


Check out the beautiful creations from the team this week! They are sure to inspire you, they always inspire me!! Have fun creating, we cannot wait to see what you come up with using these colors!!

Color Throwdown493-Great Year


Hello, Color Throwdown fans!  Broni is here as our hostess this week!  She chose a fresh spring/summer color palette for us to play with: Aqua, Lime Green, and White.  These are generic colors, and you are free to add other neutrals if you wish.

If you upload your paper-crafted creation to a public gallery please use the keyword CTD493, and when uploading on social media sites please use #ctd493 and #colorthrowdown.  Please be sure to check out all the guidelines for playing along in the sidebar.


I needed one more teacher card for the end of the year. My kids are done for the year in 3 days! I have mixed emotions about this. They are starting summer break super early this year, but it will be nice to sleep in a little and slow things down a bit. I pulled out my favorite apple set, All Apples and inked it up with  RC Aqua. I used the All Apples Confetti Cuts to cut out all the apple parts. 

In the background you'll see I stacked two images from the new Pattern Blocks stamp set in Iced Aqua. I hid the seam with a strip of Lime Green card stock and pattern paper from Cheerful & Kind

Color Throwdown 492-Beautiful Moments


A little late, but I still made it. It's been crazy town here in the Henke house as we wrap up the school year and head into State Cup play for soccer. Busy, busy! 



Hi, everyone! It's time for a new challenge! Barbara is here with your colors for this week. Remember, we're using generic colors, so as long as you use the color values shown: Red, pale yellow, and light gray you'll be good...the color police won't come after you--this is all about having fun! And, feel free to incorporate any other neutrals you need in your design, as well. 

If you upload to a public gallery, please use the key wordsCTD492and please use #ctd492 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites. Also, when linking up your card using the linky tool at the bottom of the post, please link to your specific post, not a generic link to your blog--all of the "rules" are in the right sidebar, so check 'em out to be sure. Importantly, though, no digital designsonly digital images that are printed off and colored will be allowed. Totally digital designs will be removed from the link up. 

I hope you all aren't tired of seeing the Tall Blooms set from Reverse Confetti....I just can't put it away. I combined it with some just released goodies. I water colored them this time and used the Tall Blooms Confetti Cuts to cut out the flowers. 
I started with the Stitched Rays in Buttercup, and then I layered on the new Polka Panel Confetti Cuts with all the dots left in place. 


I then cut a strip of Stone card stock and stamped the sentiment from My Tribe, also new, in Stormy ink

Reverse Confetti May 5th Birthday Hop

 Wooohoo! it's release day! It's been an exciting week and we are so ready for the Big Release of all the May goodies. I can't wait to see what you all purchase AND most of all what you all create with the new products. CLICK HERE for the New Release products, but don't miss the hop.....it's full of awesomeness!  

I have a card today using bits from the new Moon Man stamp set. I am in need of bulking up my grad card stash and these awesome shooting stars along with the sentiment make for an festive, unexpected card for a graduate. 

I started this card with some water color card stock and Oxide distress inks. I sponged up a background and spritzed it with water and then set it aside to dry. I then used the Blocked Out Square Panel Confetti Cuts. I added a RC Aqua frame with the new Stitched Square Confetti Cuts. Gosh, I love how easy it is to frame up any square with these dies. After I colored up the Moon Man images, I then used the Moon Man Confetti Cuts to cut out the images and the silver glitter stars. Here is a closer look at the detail of my card. 


There is an amazing blog hop for you today.
