Cheapo Dies Monkey Barrel



Hello Blogging Friends!!


 It is my turn over on the Cheapo Dies Blog and I made a card with the Exclusive Cheapo Dies Monkey Barrel die. 



Here is my card:



Ingredients:

Neenah Desert Storm paper
Neenah Solar White paper
3 shades of Brown paper
VersaFine Clair Chianti ink
Brown ink

For this 4 1/2 inch by 5 1/2 inch card I started with Neenah Desert Storm Paper.  I took a piece of Neenah Solar White paper and the Technique Tuesday Luscious Grapes stamp and the VersaFine Clair Chianti ink and stamped that onto the paper.  I colored in the leaves and grapes with Green and Violet Copic markers.  I took 3 shades of Brown paper and the Cheapo Dies  Exclusive Monkey Barrel die and cut out the barrel in each of the brown papers.  I took my sanding tool and distressed the barrels and inked the edges with brown ink.  I mixed and matched the 3 different brown barrels together and added them to the card.  I took the brown ink and rubbed it on the bottom of the card.  I took the My Favorite Things Uncorked stamp set and the Chianti ink and stamped the sentiment onto the card.  I took Milled Lavender distress ink and rubbed it onto the background of the card.

I hope I have inspired you to make a fun card today!

For this A2 card I started with White card stock for the base of the card.  I took the word paper from the Carta Bella "Let it Snow" paper pad and added that to the card.  I took the dark blue paper and the Kat Scrappiness Stitched Heart Tags die and cut out the tag and attached that to the card.  I took the Pine Forest Globe cut in die and some green paper and cut out the trees. I took some white paper and the Die-namics Stitched Dome Frame and cut that out and added that to the card.  I placed the Pine Forest cut inside the Stitched Dome Frame, colored in the background with a blue marker.  I took the sentiment stamp and some black ink and stamped the sentiment inside the Dome Frame.

Here is my 2nd card for the blog hop:



Ingredients:

Stitched Tag die
Warmest Wishes die
White card stock
Blue snowflake paper
White shimmer paper
Faded Jeans distress ink
Blue & White Bakers Twine

For this A2 card I started with White card stock for the base of the card.  I took a piece of Blue snowflake paper and added that to the card.  I took a piece of White Shimmer paper and the Snowflake Background die and cut out the snowflakes and added that to the the card.  I took the Stitched Tag die and some more of the Blue snowflake paper and cut out the tag.  I took more of the White Shimmer paper and the Warmest Wishes die and cut out the sentiment and added it to the tag.  I inked the edges of the tag with Faded Jeans distress ink and added it to the card.  I took the Blue & White Bakers Twin and wrapped it around the card several times and then tied a bow at the top of the card.

Hello Blogging Friends and Coffee Lovers!!


This is my 2nd post today, if you are looking for the Scrapy Land Challenge post please scroll down.  I just couldn't pass up making a coffee card for the 2018 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!!


Here is my card for today:



Ingredients:

Coffee bean paper
Sentiment paper
White card stock
Red paper
Red & Green Bakers Twine
Brown ink

For this A2 card I started with White card stock.  I took a piece of coffee bean paper, inked the edges with brown ink and added it to the card.  I took some Red paper and the Waffle Flower Lacy Layers 2 Die and cut out the red paper.  I placed the red paper on an angle on the card.  I took a scrap of paper that I had in my stash with the sentiment, inked the edges with brown ink and added that to the card on a slight angle.  I took some Red & Green Bakers Twine and made a bow and attached it to the top of the card.  This was a quick and easy card to make, but I really like the look with the coffee bean paper background!
