Coffee card for November swap

Aloha~ 
I love Fall. Ok, we don't have REAL Fall where the leaves change colors but now we can feel "cold" in the air. Ok, our "cold" here doesn't even change the colors of leaves. .. lol. Anyways, my most fav. season in Virginia and the surrounding states. 
Simple layout & design but the card gives the "cozy" feeling, thanks to this leading lady stamp set from Ellen H. I made a little slit above her cuff to insert two take out coffee cups. "One for me, one for YOU!" 😊 
Here is the inside. 

I can't believe November is half way through... Thanksgiving is a week away, and Christmas is a month away, then, 2019 is right around corner... most busy season for us, cardmakers & crafters!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Have a nice weekend, getting crafty!

Happy Halloween!! #2


Aloha~ 
My 2nd Halloween card. "Traditional" design for my best friend from college. I'd been wanting to use this cute background candy corn paper for a couple of years! lol And I could finally use "the puffy sticker" for the sentiment which I got from last year's SSS's Halloween kit. We all love puffy stickers but unless you have small children, it's hard to find the way to use them, but with this background paper, I thought this was perfect! With the dimension puffy sticker gave, I decided to use foam tapes under all these pumpkins.
I'm entering this card to SSS Wednesday challenge ~ Halloween/Spooky

Hope you'll all have fun and safe Halloween!

Happy Halloween! #1

Aloha~ I barely made two Halloween cards this year. Having a full time job limits the time for card making... This is for my godmother. This year, I've decided "cute" for Halloween 😊 I used the orange craft foam to give a bit of dimension under the white front panel, rather than placing all the foam tapes for small individual designs.  
I'm going to enter this card to LFawnatics challenge~Bling it out. When they introduced the new sparkle cardstock, I knew what I was gonna use it for. 😊 All colors in this cardstock package is so beautiful! 

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. 
Have a fun & safe Halloween! 🎃Eve

October Coffee card swap

Time surely flies. It's already October, and made this for the monthly swap. 

All stamp images are from Lawn Fawn's new stamp set. The leaves are also Lawn Fawn's. This time of the year, Pumpkin spice is the thing in US. Since it's the swap for the month of October, I combined the image for the Halloween but not all the people enjoys Halloween, and I have no clue what kind of person the recipient is, I played safe 😊

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Have a nice weekend, everyone!  
Eve who loves Pumpkin Spice ❤

September Coffee Card Swap

In this busy life, we have to "take a paws", and drink coffee, OFTEN! 😉

Thank you for stopping by my blog today! Have a nice weekend!

August coffee card swap

As soon as I saw this stamp set got released, I had to have it! lol Now I live in Hawaii, so I had to place HIM on a surfboard. I don't have a surfboard stamp, so I cut the yellow card stock into the shape of surfboard, stamped the design, and clear embossed it to give the natural shiny look on the surfboard. He had to wear the sunglasses. Hawaii's sun shine is bright! 😎 But I don't have a stamp for that, so I used black gel pen to draw the sunglasses. It turned out to be good cuz the gel pen also gave the shiny look, like a real sunglasses! It's always windy here so I used LF's swirl background die, and used MFS's sunray stencil. The coffee cup got the water splash, or can be the design of the cup! 😊 I had fun making this card, and will be using this stamp set more often in the future. The sentiments of this small stamp set are also funny! 
Inside, it says, "Drink Coffee, Be AWESOME!" 👍

Thank you for stopping by my blog today  😊

"Purr-maid"!!

Updates : This was chosen by a Newton's Nook Design's designer as her fav. ❤
http://www.inkypawschallenge.com/2018/08/inky-paws-challenge-77-winners.html

I had to have this stamp set cuz it cracks me up!😆 I love cats and not so much for the mermaid but "Purr-maid" cracks me up every time I say the word! LOL I plan to send this card to my friend who loves cats as much I do. I bet she would laugh as soon as she opens the envelope! The newest stamp set I got and had to play with it. Inky Paws challenge is the sketch challenge. I also had to  use their (Newton's Nook Design) new tropical fish stencil. 
It's hard to capture on the photo but I used LF background paper, and colored in the stencil, with 3 colors of distress ink. I made that "wave", cutting from the scrap paper I made, using alcohol inks YEARS ago. I used wink of stella on shell top (bra), and mermaid scales & fins. I stamped two kinds of bubbles from NND's another set, on the card base, and used perfect pearls to give that shimmer look. That's why on the right top corner shows that color (but all of the stamped bubbles images were dusted with perfect pearls but the camera doesn't pick the color up...), and found a glittered shell embellishment in my stash.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Hope y'all have a nice week!
