First Wreath

Howdy Crafters ~ Michelle on May May Design Team is creating a variety of Wreaths - I decided to give it a try. This is my first Spring/Summer Wreath.

I am OK with it. It was a learning experience and I hope my next wreaths down the crafting road will be laid out better. Sigh

I do want to make additional Wreaths for Christmas - as well as other seasons/holidays.

I have 2 photos in this posting - one on right showing my Wreath hanging on the front door.

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed week.

Gear Coffee Card

Howdy Crafters ~ one of my newest products is this Tim Holtz Gear Die Set - and Coffee  Stamp from STAMPlorations---- so I will be having other gear projects coming up now and then along with STAMPloration dies & stamps creations.

Being the coffee freak I am - I decided a Coffee Card is what is happening. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed week.

Recipe
*Cardstock - White - Patterned - Natural Fibers by DCWV [that's the yellow cardstock]
*Cuttlebug Die Cutting Machine
*TH Gear Dies - this is a 22 piece set - the corner piece, plus 21 different sizes of Gears - super cool
*STAMPlorations Typografia Coffee Another Cup Stamp - I am only using the COFFEE wording from this stamp for this card creation.
White Cardstock -Misti - Versafine Black Ink - Sponged the entire COFFEE word with Fossilized Amber Distress Ink - then Fussy Cut each letter - placed Scotch Foam Tape behind each letter and portioned the Single Stamped Letters on the card - I love it!
* Forever In Time - 3D Coffee Cup Embellishment with Butterfly and Pearl [[These came in a package of 9 different coffee cups for $1.50 at a Party Store my neighbor introduced me to - we moved to Clio a year ago and I am learning where all the nifty stores are located in this quaint home-town of hubbies]
* Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Die - 2 sizes for the mats
