Pure Bliss and Warm Heart

Hello, everyone! Today is Day 3 of the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! This hop is open to anyone so I hope to see you over there!  You can read all about it here.


Today I'm sharing two more ATCs - they each measure 2.5" x 3.5" and are the perfect size for a Pocket Letter, which I'm hoping to have completed by the end of the hop! Actually I've started a second Pocket Letter but haven't finished the first one yet. I wanted to change colour combos! Will I make enough ATCs to finish both Pocket Letters during the hop?  I don't know but I'm going to try! I'm really having fun with them!

Card #1


This dancing kitty makes me smile! He's from Poppystamps Purrfect Holiday and I coloured him with Touch Five markers and then die-cut with the coordinating die. The pumpkin cup is a digi from Verve Stamps called Latte Love and it was a freebie during last year's fall hop (thank you!). I coloured the cup with Zig markers, inked the edges with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink, and fussy-cut. The patterned paper is from K and Company and I inked the edges with the same Distress Ink.  It is layered onto kraft cardstock, which I die-cut with Memory Box Pinpoint Rectangle Layers. I stamped the sentiment from Your Next Stamp - Coffee Break and finished off the card with a few brown sequins.

Card #2


This adorable chipmunk is unfortunately no longer available. It came from Deedee's Digis and I used the precoloured version.  I die-cut the image with Gina Marie Designs Stitched Rounded Squares and inked around the edges with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. I die-cut the kraft cardstock with Gina Marie Stitched Rounded Rectangles and stamped a sentiment from My Favorite Things - Hug in a Mug. I finished off the card with Crafty Ribbons sheer organza ribbon and bow.

This card was inspired by the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches.

Decosse's Dynamite Doodles said...

Both your ATCs turned out great. Love the colouring on that coffee cup in the first and that sweet squirrel and sentiment in the second. Oh and I like the new look of your blog as well. I've been wanting to change the look of mine for...oh...about 2 and 1/2 years now but just can't ever seem to find the time to do so! Maybe one of these years I'll get around to it. ;)

Anyway, thanks so much for entering your card into our recent challenge over at the Scribbles Designs Challenge Blog. Good luck in the draw.
