For this card I used the PTI Make it Market Mini Kit: Color Pop Florals stencils and colored the flowers with watercolor paints.  It was a fun technique!  


The theme this week is "Party Time".  You can choose to use the cupcake graphic for inspiration if you'd like but you don't have to, as long as your card or project fits the theme.

Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Today I am joining in on the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! I do enjoy a good cup of (very flavored!) coffee!  Yum!

For my card today I first want to share my inspiration.



And my card...

Jen Carter Fall Coffee Cozy Wishes 1

I wasn't sure that it would make sense without seeing the inspiration photo first!  I used products from Lil' Inker Designs to recreate the photo.  I started by first die cutting the awesome leaf  from patterned paper with the Leaf Loves Dies.  I then die cut a circle from the Stitched Mats: Circles die set and stamped the leaf from the cute (and new!) Reap a Harvest stamp set.  I added a handle using a little piece from the Mini Bow Die Set.  The sentiment is perfect for Fall and is from the Coffee Cozy Stamp set.  Last but not least, I die cut a border on my wood paper with the largest die in the Stitched Mats: Side Stitched Rectangle set.

I had a fun time playing with these colors.  At first they had me stumped, but once I found this fun cat paper print, it all started to come together.  The speech bubble is from a PTI stamp set called Sweet Speech.  The cat paper was die cut with Lil' Inker Designs new Wonky Rectangles Dies and the outer edge was diecut with Stitched Mats: Side Stitched Rectangles.

Here's this week's inspiration photo with the challenge colors.

Super Hero Strength


Hello friends!  Today's card is one that was a lot of fun to put together and I mixed quite a few Frantic Stamper products together to create it.

Jen Carter Flying Superhero Friend

I started by die cutting the Starfall Reverse Cut die into my patterned paper and then backing it with a psychedelic-like glittery paper. :)  I die cut my Flying Hero and then paper pieced his cape with red cardstock.  I thought it would be fun to have him carrying the earth, die cut with the Planet Earth die.

The stamp set, one of my favorites, that I stamped the sentiment from is called Super Sayings.

Jen Carter Batty Hugger Tag Closed

This little tag was so fun to put together!  I started by die cutting one of the Dotted Tags Dies. I then added a glittery moon, die cut with the Stitched Mats: Circles dies.  I attached a bat from the Bats & Broomsticks die set.  I then die cut the bat with the Batty Hugger Die and stamped his face & ears with the Batty Hugger Stamp Set (sold as a bundle).

Jen Carter Batty Hugger Tag

I stamped the sentiment from the Batty Hugger Stamp Set & then attached a Halloween chocolate to the inside of the bat.  Such a fun and easy gift!  You could also attach a small, fun themed eraser that can often be found in dollar bins.

Jen Carter Zombie Kids Birthday wm

This last card features another new stamp & die set called Zombie Kids Stamps & Zombie Kids Dies.  I die cut the largest Anytime Tags 2 Die out of my polka dotted paper.  I then die cut a smaller one from that same die set for my tag.  I attached the sentiment, from the Zombie Kids Stamps, to the tag (die cut with the Stitched Mats: Long & Skinny Rectangles) and angled my zombie girl onto the tag.  The polka dot paper and the chevron tag are all popped up with dimensionals.
