Today I am showcasing a card that I will be teaching at Pueblo El Mirage Resort next Monday. I recently ordered a card kit from My Favorite Things for the first time. The theme of the kit is Message in a bottle and it is uber cute. The word “uber” is top of mind with me right now, as we “Ubered” our way back and forth from our BnB to Creativation. LOL I think I could really become accustomed to having my own driver. It was uber convenient for sure. Ok back to the card.
It is a great kit but the components are also available separately. It has a stencil to create the background waves. It has the dies to cut out the shape of the bottle and its’ cork top. It has a stamp set of messages to go in the bottle and even three flag dies to cut out three messages at a time. All I had to add from my stash was a few seaweeds from a Hero Arts Kit I have, sequins from Lucie’s Little things, iridescent bubbles from Studio Katia and Sand from Brutus Monroe and ink. So ok, that is quite a bit from my stash, but I love the result.
Where did November go? It is hard for me to believe that the month is over. The good news is, that means that the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop launches today.
It is a welcome break to make something that is not a Christmas card. I have been fascinated with sloths ever since I first saw the commercial with the sloth playing Charades. Maybe it is because I sympathise with the stress of trying to finish something while the clock is ticking down. Whatever it is, it caused me to buy this Newton Nook stamp the instant that I saw it. I also wanted a chance to use the Coffee Rings foiling acetate from Brutus Munroe, so this card came together quite quickly. Patterned paper from Moxie (Coffee Addict) supplied the background while the mat is patterned paper from Lawn Fawn’s Knit Picky.
