"Joy" coffee card

 I decided to play again with an item I have not. I pulled out my Concord & 9th Cup of Kindness Dies to start with and paired them with my other favorite company's the Stamps of Life, Pink and Main, and Taylored Expressions.

I used the dies to cut out some Taylored Expressions card stock in the colors Sea Salt and Oyster.

My card base is in Oyster and my inside layer is in Sea Salt.
I added some extra pattern paper to the inside to tie it to the front of the card.

I choose some 12X12 pattern paper from a Micheal's pad.

Some Stampin Up dimensionals to the back of the cup.

The lid cam cut in two pieces to create dimension.
I added foam to the second piece.

My Joy die came from the Stamps of Life and I cut that out of their Silver 6X6 paper.

Finished card.

Side View.
The sleeve comes in two dies - an outline die and a die to create the texture on the inside.
I also added some Pink & Main Pearl Confetti with my Pink tool and Tombow Mono Liquid Glue.

I used some Oyster ink to stamp the sentiment inside.
It came from a the Stamps of Life stamp set called Pumpkin Spice.

2 Cards with the Layered Orchid Stencil

 Brought out anouther flower tool and made two cards.

I started off with two alomost 6X6 pieces of Sea Salt card stock from Taylored Expressions.
I am using a layering stencil from Waffle Flower called Layered Orchid

I am using blending brushed from Taylored Expressions - there small ones.
For one card I am using Plum Punch ink.
I start heavier in the center and pull out around the edges.

I used Cilantro ink for the leaves - the darkest ink toward the petals.
Dijon ink for the center.
This was stencil two - it has the leaves and the center of the flower.

I have cut out tow sentiments and their shadow.
The sentiments and shadows came from Waffle Flower and Simon Says Stamp.
I cut two from Oreo and one from Neutrals Pearl Paper.
And the shadow from Vellum.

I used my Sizzix Side Kick to cut out the sentiments and the shadow.

I used some washi tape to carefully remove the little hairs from the die cuts.

I also used the pear paper to create a frame.
I used Waffle Flower A2 layering die to help me out along with Tombow Mono Liquid Glue.

I decided to go with some gems from Pink Fresh studio, they are a clear with some gold flexs in them.
I used my Pink and Main pick up tool and Barley Arts Glitter Glue to adhere them.

Here are the back of the cards, one in Watermelon and one in Plum Punch ink.
The background stamp came from a free gift from Altenew.

These are the inside of the cards.
I used some extra from the stenciled panel to line the inside.
I also used the Sea Salt card stock on the inside as well.

Frog Stand Up Birthday Card

 I am trying to use product I have not used yet, so I went to my Paper Smooches stamp section and pulled out my Frog and Bear Card Die set.

I began by cutting out the Word Stand Up card die in Kiwi but changed my mind to Twig.

It cuts the fold lines and the little pop up to have you card stand up.

I cut out the Frog die out of Kiwi card stock and out of Kiwi felt.

I am using some double sided sticky tape on the back of the card stock to adhere the felt to it.

I cut the felt a little bigger because its easier to trim off excess at the end.

Adhere the frog bottom half only to the bottom half of the card.
 I cut the layering dies for the front with the Vanilla card stock and realized there were to small.
My pattern paper is from a 6X6 pack called Just a Note Collection.

I am using my Sizzix Side Kick to cut out the face pieces from Felt in matching colors.
Kiwi, Licorice, Powder Sugar, and Flamingo.

My smile ripped so I added some double sided adhesive on the back of felt and cut it out again and no ripping this time.

I cut out the Happy Birthday from Green Apple card stock.
I used some banner sticker from a card kit die.

I die cut and inked up some lily pads and a lily.

Finished Card Front.

I die cut the lily from Cherry card stock and the lily pads from Green Apple card stock.
I added some birthday candle stickers from a card kit as well.

This is the card open.

This is the back of the card.
