One of my favourite past times with friends is sitting around having a cuppa and chatting. It’s hard to beat face to face interaction with a friend. You can read each other’s body language, laugh out loud and easily get stuck for hours drinking way too much coffee.
Sadly, many of my bestest friends live so far away from me that I don’t get the opportunity to sit across the table and laugh over a cuppa so instead I do what I do best and make them cards that will brighten their day.
So with that in mind, this month we are inspiring you with some gorgeous images illustrated by Krista Smith and a whole range of new chipboard designs relating to Friends, Coffee & Tea!
Chance to win goodies!
I am happy to announce the two random winners, one chosen randomly from Nicoletta’s blog post and one chosen from Andrea’s blog post are:
Elizabeth Elton & Paula Yeates
I’ll be popping your prize in the mail by the end of this week. xo
Huge thank you to everyone who spent the time hopping around to enjoy the inspiration and leave some love for the
Design Team who worked so hard to bring this together. We hope you will join us again for our next hop.
Please join us on the hop and be inspired for a chance to win one of two Chipboard sets featuring the new friendship cursive sentiment designs.
Simply leave a comment on each blog along the way as I will be picking a winner from two random posts. Winners will be announced and contacted Sunday 25th February so get your hopping boots on!
Today I created a card featuring the ‘Best Friends‘ image which is supplied with all four gorgeous girls together, plus I have also included each girl as a separate image so that you can layer them together to build your own circle of friends.
My image was coloured with COPIC markers and I decided to step outside my CAS comfort zone and go for a girly card with layers and flowers. The chipboard was heat embossed with white embossing powder to make it stand out.
For my second card, I wanted to have some fun with creating a background with the Tim Holtz Woven Stencil, and mixed media paste that I coloured using distress inks. Then I used the same stencil over the Coffee Hug – Cursive Sentiment chipboard and sponged the distress inks on top to get the same pattern. I love how it turned out.
Here’s a close up of the texture. Oh and my sneaky ‘bathroom silicone’ glue is poking out the bottom of the M – but it’s a great trick to popping up the chipboard words. Just add a few gobs on the back and be careful not to press down too hard.
The design team have created some wonderful inspiration and I can’t wait for you to see, so get your hopping boots on and soak it all in.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
Here is a list of the blog hop in case you get lost along the way.
