Reverse Confetti-Hug in a Mug

Hello friends!  I had taken a little over a week off from stamping because of the holidays and Monday was time to get back at it. I find it easier to jump back into creating after some time off with a warm up card. I like to find a challenge for my starting point and pick a stamp set I love. Then I see how it all comes together from there. How do you get started after some time off??

 I used the current MFT color challenge. I loved the combo and it felt warm and cozy for me, so I reached for my coffee themed stamps and dies from Reverse Confetti. It makes me happy that all 4 coffee sets from RC coordinate together. I started with Caffeinated Cups,stamping the mug and then cutting it out with the Caffeinated Cups Confetti Cuts

The little foam art is from Be A Barista. I then added a white heat embossed sentiment from For the Love of Latte

A few other accents I added are hearts from Love Note and Shakers 'n Frames and the circle cut out from Circles 'n Scallops

Thanks for stopping by again today! I always love when you do. Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Taylored Expressions Blog Team

I can't believe I am actually saying this, but I am. I want snow! We have had inches and inches of rain for the past few days and it's winter. That means it should snow. It should not be in the 40's and 50's raining. Come on Mother Nature, give us some of that white stuff. 
For now I will have to get my snow fix from my card making. I just adore this sweet little snowman from Taylored Expressions. My card was featured on the TE Blog last week with my Blog Team post. You can see that post  HERE

Final Sweet Sunday Sketch!

Yes. My title is correct. Today marks the end of an era in the stamping world. They say all good things must come to an end, but I don't like this. sniff, sniff! Karen has decided Sketch no. 300 is a perfect place to stop and say good-bye! 

I have loved the Sweet Sunday Sketch for so long! It was always my go-to sketch when I was stuck and needed some inspiration. I was fortunate to work with Karen on the MFT design team years ago and just love her style, her friendship, and her amazing work. Karen has no idea how much joining this team has meant to me. She asked me to join at a time when I received the biggest BLOW to my crafty ego, at a time I could have wrapped it all up and walked away, but BOY am I glad I didn't! Instead, the arms of this team wrapped me in and lifted me up and turned it all around for me. Thank-you Karen for having me.I have loved every minute of Sweet Sunday Sketch and I will miss everything about this challenge. It has been so much more than just stamping! 

So with all that sappiness, let's move on and check out my card I have. I made it just for Karen. She truly is beautiful and amazing! You'll notice I created a top folding card with this sketch. They are my favorite and I just squished it all on to fit. I used all Reverse Confetti stamps and dies today. Papers are from MFT. 

I combined the All About You stamp set and the word die from Tag Me, Too Confetti cut to create my sentiment. I used the tag re-enforcer die from that set to make my scalloped flower and tucked in some of my favorite Leafy greens. I used the Circle 'n Scallops dies to follow the sketch. 

Here is this week's Sketch....the final one! 
more sniffles. 
Have fun with it AND let's go out with a BANG!!!

Thank-you for always hanging with my on Sunday. I have loved all your support and kind words over the years.
