Happiness is....

Join us on the the Coffee Lover's Summer blog hop!

Today I have a fun coffee card to share, using the Grandpa's Glass: Cup of Love die!  Yay! I am obsessed with this die. There is also a new stamp set to match:  Cup of Love. It is so versatile and fun. Whether you choose to color with colored pencils, watercolor, replace each piece with different colors, there is so much you can do! I chose to watercolor with some Tim Holtz Mini Distress Inks, and here's what I came up with!

Cute shirt card just for Fathers Day! Hi, it's Jillian here today ~ finally after a few months of not posting!  School is out and I am not so stressed or busy. You don't need a fancy die to create this card.  Just a couple of my basic shape die sets and you have a darling shirt card for your Dad!
Cutting the Black card stock with the Basic Backdrop die for the bottom mat layer, as well as the Polka Dot Square Die to make the Lapels ~ cutting them diagonally.  Then I cut the striped paper with the Polka Dot  Backdrop and just a strip of cream cardstock for the placket.  I added the Bow Tie and buttons from the Buttons and Bows Die set.
Cream and Black sentiment layer and mat are from the Basic Backdrop and Polka Dot backdrop and the sentiment is from Fan{TACHE}tic Father's Day stamp set.
Thanks for stopping by today!
God Bless,
