Summer Coffee Card

Hey Coffee Loving Friends,

  
Good Morning and Welcome to the Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop!! You will want to go to http://coffeelovingcardmakers.com/ to start the blog hop. Grab a cup of Coffee and head on over and see all the wonderful projects everyone has come up with. Kadoodle Bug Designs is a Super Sponsor for the Hop. You can find some cut Coffee files over on their website http://kadoodlebugdesigns.com/shop/. While you are there pick up this weeks super cute coffee themed freebie!!


This morning I want to show you a cute Summer themed Coffee Card. I wanted it to look like the turtle was relaxing on the beach drinking a iced latte. For this card, I used a combination of three files Paradise Found, Kawaii Summer Drink, and Cutie Katoodles Lemonade Turtle from Kadoodle Bug Designs.


I love making scenes with the cards I make but my favorite happens to be tropical beach scenes. Who wouldn't want to be on the beach right now relaxing with a cold drink?!? For the turtle, I replaced the lemonade cup with the Kawaii Summer drink. I didn't put the orange slice on the side though because I thought it was to much for a coffee. Instead of lemons by her feet and in her hair bow I replaced that with the Coffee Beans.

Father's Day Card

Hey Deer Friends,

         I hope you all are having a great week!! I had a funeral to go to this week and I've been babysitting my nieces, so I'm delayed in getting my card posted.

Tonight, I want to show you a Father's Day card I made using the fishing bear freebie from last week. I really liked the bear and thought it'd be cute to make a big one as the Dad and a little one as the son.   For this card, I used a combination of two files Fishing Bear and Gone Fishing from Kadoodle Bug Designs.


I love making scenes with the cards and scrapbook pages I make. It's fun for me to add all the details into the creations. I guess that's the way my brain works because I just love details!!! When I created this I wanted the Dad and Son bear to be on a boat fishing. So I used the boat from the Gone Fishing file and then the woodgrain stamp to create a realistic boat. Then, I used some blue Nuvo Drops to create the ripples in the water. To finish it I added some cattails around the boat to complete the scene. : )


Below is a complete list of supplies and materials used to complete this project:
Paper Piecing
KaDoodle Bug Files:  Gone Fishing and Fishing Bear
Disney Classics Cricut Cartridge: Cattail
Cardstock:  Core'dinations from JoAnn's & Recollections from Michaels.
Colorbox Chalk Cat's Eyes Ink: Black, Brown, Blue, Cocoa, Rose Coral, Olive, & Scarlet.

Adhesive: Atg Gun, Zig 2 way glue,  & glue dots.
White Gel Pen: Signo Uniball White pen
Nuvo Drops: Caribbean Blue, Ebony Black & Carnation Pink.

I am entering this card in the  Simon Says Anything Goes Challenge

Teacher Appreciation Card

Hey Deer Friends,

         I hope you had a great week!! I spent this morning with my Mom and Sister in Law yard selling. It's always fun to go to yard sales and find treasures for cheaper prices. And crafty treasures are my favorite. Yesterday, I got a scrapbook paper rack for $20. It's got 30 slots to put all the paper in. I'm super excited about it!!! I need to do some rearranging before I can actually put it in my room though. I also got some brand new school themed washi tape and some black and white twine for 50 cents each.

Tonight, I want to show you the last Teacher Appreciation Card I made for my other nieces teacher.  I used a combination of two files from Kadoodle Bug Designs for this card: Cutie Katoodles Smarty Owl and Color Me Cute.



Like the previous card, I let my niece look through the Kadoodle Bug Designs School files. She picked out the Color Me Cute Bear with the Crayon. I wanted the card to have a little something more so I added the book and the bookworm.

Solider Memorial Card

Hey Deer Friends,

         I hope you had a great Memorial Day weekend!! I'd like to thank all the Men and Women who gave it all for our Freedom!! I think the Bible says it best, Greater Love has no one than this, that he  lay down his life for his friends. (John 15:13) This scripture was my inspiration for this card. I tried to get my Cricut to write the scripture on the card, but it didn't work out right. And my printer isn't working either or I would have tried that too. : (  I used a combination of two files from Kadoodle Bug Designs to create this card: Loving Memory Bears and Cutie Katoodles Army Penguin.



I messed up a few times when making this card, but sometimes you have to roll with it and keep going.  One of my mistakes was the sky it was too dark. I started out with blue and went to purple but it didn't look good. I then flipped the card to the opposite side and did yellows and oranges but you could still see some of the purple so, I had to put the grass up a little bit to cover it. Then I messed up on the grass and ended up having to trim the bottom piece. To cover that up, I cut a white trim border and it left a area at the bottom I could put the sentiment.

I wanted the middle cross to look like it was closer so, I popped it up and then I cut the two side crosses smaller and laid them flat so they appear further back. In the end, though the card turned out better than I expected



Below is a complete list of supplies and materials used to complete this project:
Paper Piecing
KaDoodle Bug Files: Cutie Katoodles Army Penguin & Loving Memory Bears.
Stand & Salute Cricut Cartridge: Dog Tags

         I hope you had a great week!! Today was my nieces last day of school.  She's sort of emotional because next year she will be going to another school district and she's only been to this school.

Today, I'm going to show you another card for another teacher in her classroom.  Every year, I make Teacher Appreciation cards for my nieces teachers.f I used the School Day Bookworms file from Kadoodle Bug Designs to create this card.

Bookworm Teacher Card

Hey Deer Friends,

         I hope today has been a great day for you!! Every year, I make Teacher Appreciation cards for my nieces teachers. One of my nieces finished preschool yesterday and the other finishes school on Friday. So, I have a few cards I've got to work on for the teachers, so stay tuned for more cards. I used the School Day Bookworms file from Kadoodle Bug Designs to create this card.



So I let my niece look through the Kadoodle Bug Designs School files and she wanted the worm coming out of the apple. She thought it looked cute and so did I. Instead of doing the bow at the neck, I made the bow on top of the worm so it looked like a hair bow. I really liked the sentiment too because it looked kind of like child's writing.



Below is a complete list of supplies and materials used to complete this project:
Paper Piecing
KaDoodle Bug Files:  School Day Bookworms.
Walk in my Garden Cricut Cartridge: Thanks a Bunch Sentiment
