Welcome back to our first blog collaboration of 2017. Celeste and I look forward to bringing you cards to inspire you and selections of coffee to tempt you. We will have a guest blogger with us each month and to kick off our year, we have Terri Albro Burson. Terri is an amazing papercrafter and coffee lover so she fits right in with us !! Celeste chose the theme for this month and she selected a Mood Board for us with the colors Black, White, Pink and Gold :
I was inspired by a calendar I bought on clearance this week. It is all things Paris and had several pictures with our chosen colors. I cut out the images that included our Mood Board colors and used several on my card.
- I adhered a piece of white patterned paper with gold accents from the MAMBI paper pad "Joyful" to a Kraft card base.
- The Metro and window images were cut from the calendar and adhered with Tombow MONO Aqua Liquid Glue,
- The Paris and Eiffel Tower images were stamped with Memories Black India Ink on Neenah Stardust White paper and then die cut. They are from the Sizzix/Tim Holtz Alterations Collection - French Flight.
- The word "PARIS" and the Eiffel Tower were popped up on the card using dimensionals. I colored the word PARIS using a Faber Castell Pink Madder Pitt Artist Pen.
- Several white and black sequins were adhered to the Right side of the card as a finishing touch.
Today's card was brought to you by a fabulous cup of Caramel Coffee in my other Cat Lady mug. I suppose the fact that 2 friends gave me "crazy" Cat Lady cups just about makes it a done deal that that is a true description of me ! But in my defense, I only have one cat. The picture was altered using my Rhonna Farrar app on the iPhone and that cute banner is from one of its Susan K Weckesser packs. It is really a fabulous app for working with your pictures. That yummy muffin in the picture was made by my awesome guy, Brian. They are made with Fiber One cereal and he made them from scratch without a recipe !! He added chocolate chunks and they were absolutely delicious !! He was trying to re-create a recipe that his dad used to make for their family when Brian was growing up. He said that his came pretty close !!
Please take a look at Celeste's card using the Mood Board colors at her blog - Crafting Junky . And give Terri a warm welcome as our guest this month by visiting her at Waving My Wand and leaving her a comment. Terri is an Adornit IT Girl, a member of the Coffee Loving Papercrafter's Team, and designs for So Suzy Stamps and Two Paper Divas. And that is just a short list of her creative accomplishments !! We are thrilled to have her with us this month. Be sure to sign up to follow our blogs if you haven't already done so.
Thank you for starting off your year with us. We will see you next month.
February is one of my favorite months -- full of hearts and love ...
