Tim Holtz and Karen Burniston Coffee Cards



I hope I'm not overwhelming you with posts, but I am having so much fun making these days and couldn't let the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop pass me by without making a few cards.  My friend Carol shared THIS pin with me and it totally put me in the mood to break out my Tim Holtz Fresh Brewed Bigz die and get crafty.  I used paper from Tim's Christmas Paper Stash and chose the buffalo check for my cuppa. 


I used Tim's Occasions stickers for the sentiment over a piece stamped with the (Stripes &) Holiday Type stamp.  I tucked in a Snowflake Flurry 2 die cut behind it.


The snowy hill is from Tim's Home for the Holidays die cut set.  I cut it and the back panel from his Stitched Rectangle dies.   I made a little spray with the Juniper punch and berries from the Funky Festive dies.  I use this punch a lot because it is so easy for making quick holiday sprays.  There is another, called Large Pine which is actually on clearance for $6 at Sizzix.com right now.  I strongly urge you to grab it up!  You will thank me later.  :)  LOL!  As a final touch I splashed everything with watery gesso to create a snowy effect.


Now, I made this card as fast as I could late last night, then woke up at 5:30 am today and made a second card.  :)  Honestly, I don't know what got into me...


For the entire month of November, I played along with The Daily Marker 30 day coloring challenge.  I shared most of my coloring on Instagram


Here's my day 9 coloring, using the Tim Holtz Mini Blueprint Strip Fresh Brewed.  I grabbed these at Tuesday Morning because I had seen THIS card by the incredibly talented Shelly Hickox.  Since I already had the Karen Burniston Twist Panel Pup-Up die from the Darkroom Door/KB Collaboration Blog Hop, I knew I wanted to CASE Shelly's design using the Fresh Brewed images.  :)


For the cover I used the Fresh Brewed die again and for the final day of the coloring challenge, I watercolored the pieces to make my 1/2 Sweet Frozen Caramel Latte with No Whip!  :)  The little heart came in the Twist Panel set. 


I doodled on the pieces to make them coordinate better with the stamped images inside of my card.


I tucked in another Flurry 2 snowflake die and greenery from the Funky Festive set.  The bow is from the same set and is mounted onto a panel stamped with Tim's Doodle Greetings stamp set onto chalkboard paper.  I was really disappointed with this paper.  It bubbled when heat set due to the plastic coating.  This panel came out fine, so I sanded the edges of it to add to the chalkboard look.  I made a little gift card holder for the inside and left it white so the message could be written there.  I had every intention of adding the On The Edge snowflake along the seams, but apparently I don't own it and thought I did!  LOLOLOL!  Oh well...  Ha!  I'm so pleased with how these cards turned out, despite my sleep deprivation.  I'll try to add a video of this one on Instagram later today.  Merry Christmas y'all!  <3

Your creations are AMAZING, Autumn! Loving your choice of colors and such wonderful details. Wish I could ever participate in the 30 days of coloring challenge, it always starts out good, then I can't seem to get anything colored.
So nice to see you joining in at my Crafty Wednesday challenge this month!
