PaperArtsy JOFY Christmas Snow Shaker Cards Tutorial

I'm delighted to be sharing the details on these "cute critters" Christmas cards for the current PaperArtsy blog topic.   I didn't manage to color every day for The Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge because of travel and sickness, but am proud of all of the coloring I accomplished when I could.
I colored these fun images with Distress Markers to coordinate with the papers I gel printed using PaperArtsy Fresco Chalk Acrylic Paints

I hope they bring a smile to your face today and you will hop on over to the PaperArtsy blog for more.  Hugs, Autumn

Infusions and Vintage Christmas Stamps with PaperArtsy

I'm running a bit behind these days because thankfully our family has had some time away over the last couple of weeks.  We needed it desperately and I feel rejuvenated and refreshed and ready to craft up a storm!  I'm sharing some of my favorite cards I've made this year over on the PaperArtsy blog.  I hope you will hop on over and take a peek.  :)

I've combined this amazing stamp sets with some of my favorite products for a vintage/grungy take on Christmas.  Thanks so much for your continued support!

Picket Fence Coffee Loving Owl Christmas Card

There is nothing like the feeling of knowing you "can't" do something to motivate you to do it anyway!  LOL!  I really really really didn't want to give up on my coloring today because I have to work 12 hours until late, so I decided to do it early!.  Then really really really wanted to make just one more coffee card for the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, so I did!  :)

One step at a time though, first I colored this adorable Picket Fence Owl with Distress Markers and Inks using a waterbrush.  I got her and another similar stamp plus the coordinating dies at stamp convention in Georgia this year.  I LOVE owls and LOVE funky sketched art!

So I pieced together some of Tim Holtz's Christmas stash from last year and added the bow from the Merry Christmas die set.  I overstamped and embossed in white with this cute sentiment I got on clearance at HL.  Super quick and easy, but festive and fun!

Today I hope you defy the odds and do something you shouldn't have been able to do.  :)  I'm rooting for you!  Hugs, Autumn

Pumpkins and Plaid a Cup of Thanks My Dear Card

Oh my gosh!  There is NEVER enough time to craft all of the cards that I have in my head for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  So I think this will be my last make for the Fall/Winter hop.  :(

I am sooooo tired from our weekend getaway and have to work all weekend this coming weekend.  But I have to ask if y'all have tried the PB Cinnamon Spice Latte?  It is sooooo good.  I don't like super sweet drinks, so this is my new favorite!  Coffee to the rescue today!

This card uses more of the wooden chippies and paper from Joann's, with the Tutti Designs fall wreath and a Penny Black coffee cup.  

I embossed the Tim Holtz pumpkin Bigz die in Ranger's new Mixed Media Embossing Powder in Hammered.  I LOVE this stuff you guys!!!  Especially the color Fire!  The sweet little sentiment is from an old SU! stamp set.  I've had so much fun seeing all of your makes this week.  Happy hopping.  Hugs, Autumn

Coffee Loving Elf Tim Holtz Retro Poinsettia Shaker Card

Happy hopping coffee lovers!  I forgot to schedule my posts over the weekend while we were away, but have a few more cards to share with you for the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.   I couldn't help but make two cards while I was playing with my crafty pal @carolinasweetlee 's Santa's Helper die.  (Which is on a very good sale right now at  I just picked up the Retro Repeat background die and thought the triangles could be turned to make trees. 

My panels and greenery were inked with a combination of Distress Inks and Oxides and the back of my shaker was stamped with Tim's Stripes & Holiday set.  I'm loving this year's Large Funky Festive die set.  I paired the poinsettia with some punched greenery.  I stamped the swirly border from the Ornate Trims set to add some contrast and filled the card with vintage sequins I picked up from the thrift shop.  :)  I sure do hope this card makes you smile and your week is filled with joy.  Hugs, Autumn

Pumpkin Spice Coffee and Critters Cards

I was sooooooo excited to get the new Tim Holtz Organic Thinlet die, but then lost it from myself... Ugh!  Well, I found it the other day and decided to have a play.  Of course, it was right where it should be but I couldn't see it for looking at it.  LOL!  

I cut it from kraft card and gave it a dip of Vintage Photo Distress Ink, then a spray of Iced Spruce Distress Oxide Spray.  

All of the other elements were altered last year, including the Pumpkin Bigz, the Crackled Bird Branch and Scroll dies.  I just played until I was happy.  

I seriously cannot get enough of this pumpkin...  My other cards with it can be found HERE and HERE.

And here a couple of my very own pumpkins at our Pumpkin Festival in Pumpkintown, SC.  :)

I just had to do some PSL cards for this year's Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop...

I picked up this beautiful paper pad and adorable little wooden chippies at Joann's for a song. 

I layered the Jillibean Soup Hug in a Mug die with a Tutti Designs fall wreath.  The gingham ribbon has been on my table for over a month and I finally found a card to use it with!  :)  Reminding you to Make Today Count!

Tim Holtz Coffee Loving Elf Christmas Card

It's my most favorite time of the crafting year, the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!   It is so hard to believe that this time last year I was busy as a bee making coffee cards day after day, then the very next morning we were hurried into the hospital to begin Sydney's treatment for leukemia.  Even harder to believe that I didn't craft for months and months after that, with so many long hospital stays during the ups and downs of her chemo.  Thankfully, she will be starting maintenance chemo next week!  Praise the Lord!!!

Thank you all so much for your support and prayers throughout the past year.  <3

I've been having some fun with my crafty pal @carolinasweetlee and hew new Christmas die cuts.  When I saw the little coffee mugs and cups in the new Tim Holtz Festive Things die set it made me want to combine them with the Santa's Helper Elf die.   He reminds me of myself trying to balance my coffee...  It never works for me!  

I used the Scribble Woodlands stamp set along with Alphanumeric dies to complete this festive phrase.  The tree is also from the Festive Things set, but the circle baubles are the berries from the holly in the Seasonal Scroll Bigz die

The circle was cut from the Snowglobe 2 die set from last year's Christmas stash.  I used a Picket Fence Distress Paint Dauber to outline the edges to give the appearance of frosted glass.  I used the Tim Holtz Ornate Trims stamp set to make the border around my design. 

I'm looking forward to hopping with you all again this year.  Hugs to all of you coffee loving cardmakers!
