Coffee and Love go together

Hi Dawn T here to share my card today. 

I have used the lovely flower coffee cup today with the matching sentiment.  I die cut the printed panel with a scallop die from Catherine Pooler Designs and added it over an embossed background.  I coloured the image with Copics.

Kitty in a Cup

Graciellie Design

Graciellie Design is our wonderful sponsor for May and isn't the saying "April Flowers Bring May Flowers"?  

So it is with our theme, 

Use flowers or a flower in your project.


This is a sweet kitten in a cute cup.  The sentiment is as sweet as the kitten.  There are flowers in the design, but difficult to see.  I recently received some very pretty purple petite posies from my March Card Chain Challenge partner, Lucille, and I knew they were perfect for this cup.  I think I colored the cup a bit darker than I would have liked, but the sentiment and blue matting make the dark cup fit.  Sometimes you can save an image.

Supplies:
Graciellie Design You are the Sweetest
Vagabond die cut machine
Copic markers
Petite Posies

For my card today I have used the Sweet Roses Bouquet - It's a layering stamp and a challenge to use, but oh so worth the effort.  

 I stamped the roses in the corner of my card.  This one is a 4 1/4" x 4 3/4" card to allow for the die cut edging.  This die cut was a freebie with a magazine a couple of months ago.  Very delicate.  The sentiment from another Altenew set, was embossed with Altenew Rose Gold powder.

Just a couple more days to join our challenge for April - Anything Goes!  Hope to see your creations.   '

Guest Artist Hannah



Hello All
If you don't remember me, I used to be an active crafter and part of this very  DCD Design team, but due to my job, and a busy life at home, I took a break from the online community, for what seemed like ages, I still continued to be creative, but just wasn't able to do near as much as I used to. However I'm Excited to be back creatively and happy to visit with the Die Cut Diva's today! I've missed so much of the online and physical crafting world, But now I'm ready to jump back in and with my work to help it along!

I'm now a proud Independent Consultant For Close To My Heart, Selling Scrapbooking and Card making supplies, hosting in home and online parties, and I'm already scheduled for my first vending opportunity in November, This Month has been so much fun as I launched my website out to the Public. https://hannahnicoleart.closetomyheart.com/ and giving prizes on my blog which are up for grabs till the end of this month, I would love to have you stop by and check it out!
I also have a page and group on Facebook now too, https://www.facebook.com/CTMHHannahFoust/

https://www.facebook.com/groups/924199714428035/


For this Months theme; Anything goes, it only took me a moment to decide what I would do, I just felt like celebrating so that is exactly what I did...
I actually have a lot to celebrate this month, my new job doing what I love, getting back into creativity, the return of warm weather and my Dad's Birthday! (this card is for him too )
I pulled out my new favorite CTMH stamp, (actually an old retired stamp) and inked it up with Sapphire Blue, and die cut the word Celebrate, and that is another thing I'm celebrating, as soon as I got back in the "game"  I finally learned how to use deco foil! something I've been wanting to do for some time, I love how it turned out, the foam adhesive I used was so sticky I had a hard time getting it off my hands, but as soon as the foil transferred onto it, it now feels so smooth and silky.

Well that is all for now, Good Luck on the Challenge! Altenew is a great win! I might even enter the challenge myself for a chance to win!
