Spring Coffee Lovers Blogshop Super Sponsor...

We are so excited to be a part of the Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop.

  
Fridays make me happy, but coffee makes me VERY happy!  I'll admit it...I'm a coffee crazed crafter!  

 For my card today, I'm highlighting Neat & Tangled's Perfect Blend set.  With so many darling images, I tried a few different techniques to bring them to life.  The two cups of coffee and the half and half carton were colored with markers; the to-go-cup was paper pieced and for the green tea cup, I stamped on acetate so it looks like a "clear plastic" cup.





Head on over to the Coffee Lovers Bloghop HERE and join the fun.

Thanks for stopping by and being a Drive By Crafts Friend.

Elphie Selfie

Hello Everyone!
It's Ceal, here to share a card using some Lawn Fawn products. 
When I seen the latest release from Lawn Fawn, I just had to have this cute elephant set, Elphie Selfie
I tried my hand at some no line water coloring on this one, I started with a white top folding card base, some of the fabulous Perfectly Plaid design paper from Lawn Fawn and a sheet of cold press water color paper.
I stamped the elephant in a light gray ink and them used Zig pens to watercolor him, the balloon and the background.












Don't forget about our clearance section, things are 30% off now and there are still some fabulous products

Hello There OTTERS


Checkout the Clearance Section and save big..


Hi, Lisa here today sharing an OTTERLY adorable Hello using My Favorite Things and American Crafts goodies. 
 So first, I put a strip of gold washi tape using American Crafts Shimelle - Little By Little Washi tape along the bottom of the front of my card base. 
 Next, I cut out my scallop curve on my patterned paper from American Crafts Shimelle - Little By Little 6 x 6 paper pad using My Favorite Things Stitched Scallop Basic Edges 2 Die-namics.  I stamped my sentiment on the front of my patterned paper panel using My Favorite Things BB Otterly Love You stamp set
 I made a light pencil line on my card base along the scallop edge of my patterned paper panel then sponged the yellow background using Ranger's Mini Ink Blending Tool.  And stamped my sentiment where I wanted it on my card base at the top (I wanted it by the otter that looks like he is waving) using My Favorite Things BB Polar Bear Pals stamp set
Lastly, I stamped all my little otters using My Favorite Things BB Otterly Love You stamp set and cut them out with the matching dies.  Then I colored them up using Copics: E000, E00, E11, R20, W1, W3, W5, R22, R24.  I popped up my patterned paper panel on my card front leaving a little of the gold washi tape showing, then popped up the otters just behind it so they look like their heads are popping out of the water.

Today's YOUR Lucky Day!



Happy St. Patrick's Day!  
My grandmother was Irish (which puts a little Irish in me too :)  Every St. Patrick's Day she'd make the traditional meal of corn beef and cabbage.  I'd like to say I looked forward to the dish, but I was not a fan (of the taste or the aroma!)
 

 Instead of making a meal, I opted to make a card instead!


 I'm featuring several fun products found in the Drive By Crafts store.  First, if you haven't tried the new Ranger/Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink Pads, you are missing out on BIG fun -- I'm in love!  I created my backgrounds using these new ink pads.   Using the heart die from Concord & 9th's Layering Leaves, I cut from a piece of cardstock that I inked up with a few colors of Distress Oxide ink pads to create a 4-leaf clover. This fab Neat & Tangled sentiment from the So Lucky set takes center stage for my card and I added a few sequins from Drive By Crafts' Green Dragon mix!

Altenew Goodness


Hello Everyone, it's Ceal here to share a couple cards with you using Altenew Stamps. 
For the top card I started with a Peacock top folding card base and a panel cut down with a stitched die. The floral image and the "hello" are from the  Hello Sunshine set and the polka dots and the "beautiful" are from the Simple Flowers set. I colored the floral image with Copic markers and added some Wink of Stella for shimmer.


For my second card I also used a top folding Peacock card base and a white panel. For this one I used the large and small polka dots from the Simple Flowers set and the other images and greeting are from the Hello Sunshine set.
For the side stitching on the panel I used the Stitched Basic Edges by My Favorite Things









FYI
We had to increase our min. order for free shipping to $39.
We hope you understand. 
Thank you for being a customer.

Give Me THREE "YAY"s

Hi, Lisa here today sharing some cards
 I created using a couple of the newest additions to the Drive By Crafts Store. 

 I am in love with these new stamp sets.
On this card, I stamped the largest circle from Altenew's Halftone Circles up in the corner of the card front.  Then I took a pen and drew lines to make it a balloon.  Lastly, I used Altenew's Celebrate stamp set to stamp the sentiments on the circle.  I love how this turned out and want to make a set of these in different colors to have on hand for birthdays. 
 Here, I made a Latch Card. 
I made a gatefold card base. Just took my 4 1/4 x 11" piece of cardstock and scored at 2 3/4 and 8 1/4. I stamped the front in VersaMark ink using Altenew's Halftone Circles.  Next, I die cut My tag using both dies from SugarPea Designs' SugarCut - Beautiful Bauble making a frame. Then I cut out just the center from white cardstock.  
 I adhered the red bauble tag frame with foam tape only to the back of the top side of the frame so it would not adhere below the gatefold line.  Then, I stamped my circle and sentiments using Altenew's Halftone Circles and Celebrate on my stitched circle.  I adhered foam tape to only the bottom half of my circle on the back  So it makes a latch on the front of the card and holds it closed until gently released from the front.  
 On the inside of my card, I cut a piece of white cardstock to 5 1/4 x 4.
I stamped it with the Altenew's Halftone Circles and Celebrate to tie into the front of the card and adhered inside. 
First I made my card base of this card 4x 5 1/2.  I stamped circles in different sizes and colors (rainbow colors, my fave) using Altenew's Halftone Circles then stamped the sentiment on the circles using Altenew's Celebrate.   I made a black strip and embossed the rest of my sentiment with white embossing powder.  I adhered my black sentiment strip so it hung over the sides equally by 1/8".  I want to make more of these using different color combos and ombre.
