Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and One More

Long post title, short post. No time to chat if I want to get this done today. So. Miss Amy and her team have put on another great Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, and I have a very QAEZPZ card. Mostly NBUS, too. (For some reason, my computer isn't letting me add the SCLBH logo... sorry). My card looks like this:


The focal panel is from a kit; Jillibean Soup Healthy Hello through Archivers. I added the 'you' from an AE set. The scalloped die is from PPP, and the base is a scrap. The greens are prettier irl, but it's overcast today so it wouldn't photograph well. Green in honor of Miss Amy.

Next I have another QAEZPZ card that will go to CASology with the cue card, "Congratulations," and the sketch from CTS.



Here's my take:


The paper is from Anita, which she shared when we were at the Lake House. Yes, I've been hoarding - so would you! I made a panel and stamped with an AE set, and added one square bling. Popped it up on the card base, and done. 

Should time allow today, I hope to get to some commenting. Take care and happy dances everyone.

Thought I saw me some of Anita's paper, you have hoarded it for good reason and made such an elegant card Bev, and of course the fun coffee bright heart and big letters totally rocks too!

Two fabulous cards....love how you went graphic with the CASE this Sketch card...and the first one...the mix of the subtle grid and the little polka dots is perfect!

Petra Swart said...

Oh, my, that is such a fun and very cute coffee card, Bev!!! Love the fun polka dots on the green - and aren't pink and green not a winning combination, hey!!!! Lovely with the mug standing in for the 'O'!!!
Striking simplicity with the CTS card, my friend!!!! So beautifully done with the lovely square bling and the small sentiment!!!!
Lovely to have a post from you!!!

Bobby said...

I'm glad you've have some craft time, Bev. The coffee card is great but I'm in love the the EZPZ Congrats card. Oh how I wish I could stamp straight lines like that.

Beverley said...

Two awesome CAS perfection cards. Hugs Bev (Uniko) x

Brenda said...

Awesome cards Bev! I so love the heart on the coffee cup with the "you" under it. I don't like coffee that much, but love the coffee card. lol Love that scalloped pane too and that paper. Your second card is so pretty, love the bling in the corner, a perfect case card. Hugs, Brenda

Two beauties, Bev! That "you" was made for that focal panel on your coffee card and I love the pretty scalloped frame.
Your CASology card is so elegant! I love that paper Anita uses - so perfect for your clean and classic design. Big hugs to you!

What a fabulous pair of cards, Bev! Your coffee one is so much fun, and your congratulatory one is SO classy!! WOW!! SO elegant with that square jewel. Thrilled that you could join us this week at CASology!

Helen Gullett said...

Fabulous card! Love the "O" cup :)

Geri said...

So nice to see you back in your craft room! And a very, very productive time it was!

Love the color scheme, the layout and the POLKIE DOTS on your coffee card. I'm also thinking that the fondness likely is directly tied to my love of coffee! The graph paper makes an awesome background!

2nd card....SHUT THE FRONT DOOR AMAZING!!! Totally calling this one for the winner's circle! Clean, simple, perfectly stamped lines and a bling that knocks this baby clean out of the ball park.

Anita in France said...

You sure made that focal point shine with the addition of the simple black 'you', Bev ... it takes your polka dotted delight from fabulous to magnifique! Oh my, graphic gorgeousness ... crisp stripes, clean white space, and that awesome shining gem ... what a stunner, mon amie! Delighted to have seen this in the winner's enclosure at CASology! Thanks so much for the shout out, sweet friend ... miss you, thinking of you and sending big hugs & bisous, Anita :)

Becca Cruger said...

I have always loved typography cards. I've also always loved coffee. So what I'm saying is that your first card made my little heart go pitter-patter in all the right ways! :) And your second card is simple, chic, and a total homage to that lovely paper from Anita! I'm sorry I've been such a bad bloggy friend of late, the month of June snuck away from me somehow, but I'm working to fix it!

Kylie said...

You are so clever, my friend! Just seeing your creations brightens my day. Pretty cards!
