Club Scrap Artist Team and Fall Coffeelovers Blog Hop day 5

Welcome to the 
Artist Team blog hop
and we feature "watercolor" ideas.
I hope you have arrived here from 
and seen her wonderful artwork.
If not you find all the participants on the

I have many things going on this week and 
a few quick backgrounds foir my cards would be great.
I love to watercolor with my embossing folders.

You need an embossingfolder
some watercolor paper
and a few colors of ink.

On one side you put the watercolor paper
ad on the other side add the inks and a few
drops of water.

Close the embossing folder and
run it through the embossing machine.

When opening the folder you not only have
the folers impression, but also a beautiful
watercolor look to it.

Here are the three backgrounds I made for my cards.

This is the finished first card.
I used Club Scraps Orchard papers and 
fruit stamps. The sentiment is from 
another kit (2014 June Picknick).
I also use a honecomb diecut to reveal
the background color of the card.

The card came to mind after I went with the
kids and grandkids to an orchard nearby to
pick apples and pears.

For the crate I used a thinlit from Stampin'Up!
and the stencil from the orchard kit to give
the paper a wooden look.

The second card is made for the 
Jewish New Year. The apple is a symbol 
we use on cards, because we eat a sweet apple 
with honey to  wish each other
 a very sweet new year.

The sentiment is an old one from my stash,

The apple is colored with some ink direct from
the craft sheet with a few drops of water.

Before adding the apples and sentiment, i sprayed a little gold
on the card to make it extra special. Hope you can see it.

Now for the last card, I just had to make a coffee
card, for I am playing in the Fall Coffeelovers Blog Hop.
All materials are Club Scrap Orchard kit
even the bottle cap that came with this kit.
The sentiment inside is from the Club Scrap
stampset Coffee Break. The leaves behind
the bottle cap are punched out of an orange colored
 nesspresso pod.

Now for some more inspiration hop over to
and see what she has made to share with you.

Fall Coffeelovers Blog Hop day 4

On day 4 of the Fall Coffeelovers Blog hop
I have a card for the tea lovers among you!

I was out the other day with my daughter and she bought
a new coat at America Today. On the counter I noticed
a krafty folder for a gift card. I asked if I could have one.
You see here the decorated kraft folder. It is exactly the
right card size: 5 1/2 x 4 inch. I used papers from the
Club Scrap Orchard kit.  The die for the cup is from
Dienamic and the apples are a paper punch. The bottle
cap came from the Club Scrap kit too.
 The crate is a thinlit from Stampin'Up!

And here is the inside.
In the pocket were you can add money or a 
gift card I added a teabag for apple tea.

The sentiment on the left side is from Club Scrap's Infusion kit.
the teabag i made by cutting out a tiny square and adding a 
piece of  wax linnen.

The sentiment here on the right side is
a combination of the apples from the Orchard kit
and Tea for two from the infusion kit.

Don't forget to add your card to the 
Fall Coffeelovers Blog Hop.

Thank you for looking and 
have a latte creative day!

a piece of brwn dotted washi tape. On top the sentiment from
yournextstamp (not available anymore) that was stamped on
a seperate piece of cardstock first.

Fall Coffee Blog Hop day 1

Welcome to the Fall Coffee Blog Hop.
As you know this is my favorite drink of the year:
Pumkin Spice latte, so that is my first card
for a week of fun, inspiration and coffee.

My card is made with the
Club Scrap Orchard digital images
and Tim Holtz coffee die Fresh Brewed
the leves ar a paper punch by Stampin'Up!

Here a little more info about the  Coffee Blog Hop.
Go to the

the sponsors of the hop. All these sponsors
have prizes to give away to everyone who
shares a card in the linky party.
So make a Fall themed coffee/tea or cocoa card
and link up to be eligible for winning
one of the fabulous prizes. 
The hop runs from September 15 until 
September 22, so enough time to add
your card/project.

Now if you saw my blog yesterday,
you noticed lots on my table and just want to share
those cards too!
There are more, but these two I share first.
The background paper is from one of those design paper blocks.

For this card I stamped the kraft paper
with Club Scrap coffee rings and a sentiment
from Stampin'Up! The cup is a Tim Holtz die cut
embossed with a spiderweb folder.
The leaves are thinlits from Stampin'Up!
and the spider is from Santa Rosa. I added a little
acrylic accent to the spider for more 3d.

For this card I used the spiderweb embossingfolder
on the design paper and have the web in the background,
but the spiders (Santa Rosa) are creeping around the 
Tim Holtz coffee mug die. The leaves decorat the cup.
The sentiment here is from another Stampin'Up! set.

Addicted to CAS: apples

Club Scrap always knows what I want!
When you have been following me the last few days,
you know I am making cards for the Jewish New Year.
For this I use apples, because it is the custom 
to eat an apple with honey (details HERE)

How about the perfect challenge for my cards?
It is here at Addicted to CAS!

So a honecomb stencil for the background
and stamped and colored apples with apiece
of rafia in between.
As we eat apples with honey, I added a blob of acrylic
accent on top of the apples and it looks like it is 
sliding down.

Apple stamp and sentiment are from the
September Orchard kit by Club Scrap.

And here is the inside of the card
printed with the computer.

Thanks for looking
and have a creative day!
