You Make Life Sweeter

You Make Life Sweeter published on 7 Comments on You Make Life Sweeter

Did you know that yesterday was National Cocoa Day??  I mean seriously, who can NOT be excited about a day devoted to cocoa?!  So of course I needed to have some hot cocoa and today I get to share a card that is all about sharing it with those you love.  I created this for my December post over at the Newton’s Nook Designs Blog.

You Make Life Sweeter by Jen Timko | Cup of Cocoa Stamp Set and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Love & Chocolate Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs, Softly Falling Embossing Folder by Stampin' Up, Stitched Shapes Dies by Stampin' Up

The little cups from the Cup of Cocoa stamp set are just so cute and I love all the variations.  I chose two that seemed to work well together and colored them to match.  Then I chose the little heart from the same set.  All of them were colored with Copic markers and then cut using the coordinating dies.  While a number of the sentiments from Cup of Cocoa would work nicely here, I thought this one from Love & Chocolate was just perfect for my sweet little pairing.  I stamped it in Versafine Onyx Black and then cut out the oval with stitched dies.  The cups and heart are popped up using Dimensionals and Mini Dimensionals (those minis are really the BEST).  I added a little extra texture in the background with my Softly Falling embossing folder (and it helps keep it wintery).  Because hey, there is still time to enter the 2017 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

Newton’s Nook Designs is one of the Super Sponsors for the Coffee Lovers Hop so make sure you go check out all the inspiration and enter for a chance to win!!  I’m also linking this in to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge:  Stitch It.

Freshly Made Sketches #294

Freshly Made Sketches #294 published on 14 Comments on Freshly Made Sketches #294

FMS294 by Jen Timko | Coffee Break DSP by Stampin' Up, Funny Coffee Stamp by Skipping Stones DesignsI’m sure you have already seen the gazillions of coffee cards across blog land this week and I could not resist adding one more!  It is the week for the 2017 Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and I just had to combine the coffee theme with this week’s new challenge from Freshly Made Sketches.  The lovely queen of color, Amy O’Neill, is our sketch designer this week and I love this classic look.

I started with the new Coffee Break DSP from Stampin’ Up and pretty much let the paper do all the work.  The French Press and the cup…straight from the paper (just fussy cut and off you go).  And check out that coffee bean paper!!!  I was in a huge hurry to create this but just could not let the hop and great sketch go by without playing along.  I only stamped this fun sentiment from Skipping Stones Designs and put the card together.  I added a few sequins from an old Paper Pumpkin set to give it a little bling and still keep it on the masculine side.  I thought the colors lent themselves to that and I always seem a little short on “man cards”.

So I have been stamping a ton with a lot to share in the upcoming weeks.  And also, flying lots and lots.  Summer is always the busy time for us airline folks!  I love having all the summer people on the planes.  There is a great energy and excitement for vacations.  I particularly love when the kids visit us in the front!!  So I apologize for some of my absences.  I am, however, super excited about the Fancy Friday hop we have coming up this week.  I hope you’ll join us.

For now, hop on over to Freshly Made Sketches and see all the amazing work from the design team this week.  You’ll be happy you did.  Have a great day!

Supplies:

Stamp:  Funny Coffee (Skipping Stones Designs); Paper:  Coffee Break DSP (SU), Thick Whisper White (SU), Old Olive; Ink:  Early Espresso; Accessories: Bronze Sequins (Paper Pumpkin by SU)

Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop published on 13 Comments on Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

The Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop is well underway and what fun it is!  I was happy to get a little time to join in this time because I’m always so inspired by the lovely work in the hop.  It was also a good time to make sure I’m still coloring for The 30 Day Coloring Challenge this month.

Spring Hello by Jen Timko | Spring CLBH Digital Stamp by JessicaLynn Original, Copic Coloring I was thrilled to see this free download set from JessicaLynn Original that was created just for the blog hop.  I don’t use digital stamps very often but this one was so pretty I just had to!  The nice part is that you can size the image to your taste.  I printed it onto X-Press It Blending Card so I could color it with my Copics.  I took a Copic Coloring Class about a week ago (Copic Flowers with Lori Craig) and tried to apply some of what I learned with her.  This image was super fun to use!

Just a quick post today.  Back in the craft room working on some projects for later this week.  I hope you have an amazing day.  Don’t forget to go over to the blog hop to see all the talented stampers who have joined in!  See you soon!

Supplies:

Stamps:  Spring 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Digital Stamp (JessicaLynn Original); Ink: Copic Markers, Versafine Onyx Black; Paper: X-Press It, Bermuda Bay; Accessories:  Misti, Big Shot, Stitched Rectangles Dies (Simon Says Stamp), Softly Falling Embossing Folder (SU), Bermuda Bay Baker’s Twine (SU), Dimensionals

Coffee and Friends

So I have a Saturday card!  Yay!!!  I had some time to stamp yesterday and just could not resist joining in this fabulous blog hop.  Amy and Chaitali have created this spring version of the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  Such fun!  I mean let’s face it.  What is stamping without coffee??!!  I know that my stamping is fueled by coffee.

Jen Timko - Coffee and Friends

The other thing that goes perfectly with coffee is friends!  I love when I get to enjoy a nice cup with mine…such a special treat.  I combined the Perfect Blend stamp set with Sweet Dreams DSP to create this fun little card.  I stamped the cup three times – on the rectangle print, on the circles print and on Whisper White. I cut them out and then pieced them together to create my cute cup.  I wrapped a little bit of Crushed Curry Baker’s Twine around the cup and then added an Itty Bitty Accents Epoxy Sticker with a little piece of coordinating DSP cut with the heart from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.  I took some washi tape and added it to a little clothespin and clipped on the sentiment from the stamp set.  More DSP for the banner and Lost Lagoon card stock embossed with Decorative Dots TIEF.

FabFri58I used this sketch from my friends over at Fab Friday for this card.  Now you need to go check out this fun hop.  So many people already linked in and guess what?!  There are loads of amazing sponsors and all you have to do is join in for a chance to win.
