Welcome to December's Three Amigos Mini Blog Hop! We are three Close to My Heart Consultants and good friends. We decided some time ago to challenge each other every month to create something. This month our projects were to be 3x3 cards. And I made 3. Starting to see a possible new theme? A nice easy one for this busy holiday month. In fact, I FORGOT over the weekend and created these in the morning before I went to work! Although I did have all of the planning done in my head and they came out almost as I'd planned. I'm also joining in on the Stamplorations December Caseplorations Challenge. It's a fun challenge where you use the designers' creations as inspiration and kind of "Case" it...
This adorable little coffee cup is from the CTMH Artistry Cricut cartridge. This was so much fun to mix and match the cuts I made to make three different cards... and I cut lots of extras so you'll be seeing much more of this cup during the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop coming up in the next couple weeks. For these cards I used the blue papers from White Pines.
The awesome sentiment is from a new set at Stamplorations called Caffeinated Christmas and it's all Christmassy sentiments that have to do with all of our favorite loves from a cup... coffee, tea and cocoa. I added the music notes from an old retired CTMH set I have... there are plenty... this is the first one I ran across when looking for music notes.
So hard to photograph this metallic gold paper, but I think I finally got the gold here... I am just loving the look of white embossing on Kraft paper these days... but I haven't abandoned my gold just yet... they go well together don't you think? Finished them off with some gold thread and gold glittered twine, Paper Sweeties sequins and CTMH Gold Bling Gems.
Don't forget to check out what Donna (although I think Donna is a little behind... as of 6:34 am Arizona time... crickets...) and Susan have created for you and then go on over to Stamplorations and check out the cool inspiration artwork and maybe even play along!
