Bountiful Blessings

Hello there coffee lovers!!!
We've been waiting a while for the 
Amy has some rediculously awesome sponsors!!!!



I pulled out some stamps and dies from Paper Sweeties, Lawn Fawn and My Favorite Things.
First I stared with the die cut stitched fishtale frames. Than I used puffy cloud borders from Lawn Fawn and some Colorbox ink in surf to create the sky background.

Than I used the scarecrow stand add- on set from Paper Sweeties. LOVE this set to pieces!!!!!! The scarecrow, pumpkins and hay are all from this set. I used black ink from Memento and Copic markers to add color. I also used a die from another set called Holly Days to prop the scarecrow onto a pole. The sequins are also PS, found in the Sweeties Shop. The sentiment is from The Splendor of Autumn, and the steam atop the mug is from the set I'm Having a Tea Party.

And of course, the coffee mug heaping with a steamy latte... the mug is from the Lawn Fawn, love you a latte. I added some accents with a white gel pen. I added some cord from Michaels.

I followed the sketch from

Hello

Hello there!

Just stopping by one more time to share a card I created for the 

I just received this gnome set in the mail from My Favorite Things, You Gnome Me stamps and dies. Well, I just had to use them immediately!!! They are truly adorable!!! I stamped the images with memento black ink and colored them with Copic Markers.

I also used the small brick stencil background from MFT. I inked it up with scarlet ink, (Colorbox), cranberry crush and silver lining, (WPlus9) onto gray cardstock from Bazzill. I added some white accents with a gel pen. 

I made a window using the zig zag stitched squares from MFT. I love the little gnome jumping up to greet the snail! I added some clear acetate to the window front and a boquet of flowers in the window bed. All other cardstock is Recollections. The clear dew drops are from Papertrey Ink.

Debbie has designed two new stamp sets and two coordinating die sets!!!
The sets are Mason Jar/ and Mason Jar Sweet Cuts
and Homegrown/ Homegrown Sweet Cuts.
Now, I know I have said this before with every Paper Sweeties Release and I have always meant it
BUT... THIS release is a MUST HAVE!!!

I combined both stamp sets and sweet cuts dies to create todays card. I also used pattern papers from October Afternoon....they are so old they could be considered vintage! 

After I stamped, colored, and diecut the mason jar I added some white polka dots with a gel pen. I used black ink from Memento and Copic Markers. I added some twine from the Sweeties Shop! I distressed the edges of the pattern paper and cardstock with some soft brown shadow ink. The doily is from Michaels.
