STAMPtember® October Card Kit blog hop

Final Oct 2014 CK Blog HopI’m super excited to be joining Simon Says Stamp for their STAMPtember® October Card Kit blog hop! If you are following the hop, then you should have arrived from the very lovely Nichol Magouirk. This month’s kit is definitely one for the coffee lover with the adorable stamp set and fun pattern papers & embellishments.
SSS~October Card KitI used the larger mug image and paper pieced it, cut the edge off and layered it on a strip of pattern paper. Before I pieced the mugs together, I blended in some ink with my ink blender. The two colors on the top are two of the new colors: Maliblue & Goldenlocks. I stamped one of the mugs with the “hello” sentiment included in the kit.
SSS~October Card KitI couldn’t resist making another card with this hilarious sentiment and cute smiley face on the mug.
SSS~October Card KitI stamped the speech bubble in black and then white embossed my sentiment over top. I blended in my favorite Maliblue ink on this mug as well and paper pieced it onto the card along with the tongue.

  12. Wow..what beautiful cards. I love how you stacked the mugs on the first card. The happy face on is just so cute and funny. Adore it.

  13. Your smiley face really made ME smile, Laura. Great addition and an adorable card. I really like the stacking coffee mugs as well. Nice job all around.

  14. LOVE the shading on the mugs on your first card, Laura – so beautiful! And your second card is CAS perfection – so darn cute!!

  15. Your cards are so fun love your crazy stacked mugs….so stinkin’ darlin’ and your “you Mocha me crazy” mug card is so fun and cute…gosh girl you know how to drive a koffee nut crazy would love to have your mugs to use right now….Super duper clever and creative jobs. YOU ROCK!!

  16. I love the smiley face and your card really made ME smile! I love the new Lawn Fawn Goodie Bag and this is a terrific way to use it. The mug is perfect and so are the stacking mugs. Great ideas, Laura!

  17. Both of these cards are fantastic. I really like the inking and sacked cups on the first one. The little face on the second cup along with the sentiment is absolutely adorable!!

  18. Someday you’re going to have to show how those darling cups are colored. That strip of patterned paper on you first card is the perfect accent. I laughed outloud when I saw your second hilarious card cuz I know the perfect recipient.

  19. Love the cards. I thought of you when I saw the punny sentiments as well. Thanks for always inspiring me AND making me laugh.

  20. Beautiful. I can’t believe you used ink to colour in the mugs. It looks like they have been coloured in with alcohol markers!

  21. Great ideas and very sweet cards from the October kit!! I’ve seen the stacked mugs a couple of times now and I think that is soooo cute! Thanks for sharing!

  22. Great job of blending colors on the mugs! They look so realistic! Becaused the mugs are cut out and pieced together, they appear to be a wobbly stack of mugs.

  23. love them both! didn’t know that “hello” would stretch across the mug so perfectly like that… I was picturing it reading sideways going up as steam!

  24. I love both of these cards A LOT!! I have to say my favorite of the two is the one with the stacked mugs. The colors are so pretty and I love the hello sentiment.

  25. Your cards are awesome. You do such great shading, too! I think this might be favorite kit yet (and I think this is at least the 3rd month in the past 4 or 5 months that I’ve thought that!). I can tell I’m going to get a lot of mileage out of this one, though!

  26. How cute, I love the simplicity, I myself don’t have a lot of time, very inspiring to me, and your shading is remarkable! Still learning myself. Very Cute Cards. I left a link, Help spread awareness, Sharing is Caring;)

  43. OMG your blending is great! I don’t know if it’s the work of the ink-blender like you mentioned or is it just you but the transition between the colours was marvelous! I like how your design is so simple but cute at the same time~^^

  44. As always love your cards Laura!! Love the design and colors you used in the first card, and of course the CAS but adorable 2nd card!! This kit is amazing!

  45. Love your cards! I am so into coffee this kit is already ordered… But girl never has enough stuff right? I am loving the whole SSS release!

  46. I have to admit when I first sae this kit, I didn’t think I’d be able to use the stamps much, but after seeing the incredible ideas in this blog hop, I’ve completely changed my mind! Awesome cards — thanks so much!

  47. Love the fun, whimsical card you made! Adding the the wooden glasses to the smiley face was all it took to make me smile!

    Thanks for joining in the hop and showing us your creations!

  50. I love your cards. I am always wondering what I can do with the ombre look and this is a perfect use for it. I love the sentiment You mocha me crazy with the silly coffee cup face.

  51. I’m not a coffee lover but I have enough friends who are – so I won’t have any problem making good use of this set. Your cards mocha me happy. thanks for sharing.

  52. Both are great cards, but the second one just made me smile and made me happy! That cute little tongue sticking out. . . Adorbs!

  53. I know you have a houseful of little ones, but I think you need to make a card video every single day! 🙂 I love your stuff, all of it! You’re one of my favorites!

  54. These are both awesome but I really love the first one. Love the patterned paper and those gorgeous mugs. And I’m impressed that you inked them after you cut them out. If I tried that I’m pretty sure I’d rip the handles off by mistake. Perhaps I need to be a bit less aggressive with my ink blending!

  55. Really, really, really like this kit! Your cards are so cute. I love the new colors on your coffee cups and the way you blended the ink, so pretty!

  56. Your cards are really cute and even though I am not a “Coffee Lover” I have friends who would love to get these cards! I think the colors in the October Kit are really very fall looking.

  57. I love your cards. My love for cards is slightly trumped by my love of coffee so this set is perfect for me. I can’t wait to get it!

  58. Laura,
    Your cards are really cute. I especially like the way you paper pieced the tongue lol that was really cute. I wouldn’t mind having a real mug like that… stinking cute. lol. Thanks for the Blog Hop and for the cards. I always enjoy your card-making. 🙂

  59. I really like the card with the stacked coffee cups-you did a great job coloring them.
    This is such a cute stamp set-a must have!

  60. These cards are so simple yet amazing! I especially love the first one. I can’t believe you got the color on them like that from ink blending. It looks really nice.

  61. The October card kit looks delish and I can’t wait to play with it! Love both your cards; thanx for the inspiration and blog candy opp!

  62. Laura, I love the way you cut the cups on the right side to make a decorative edge and let the striped paper show through. I’m a big fan of your work. Thanks for sharing.

  63. I especially like the fact that these cards could be great for either female or male. And we all know that men are more difficult to make cards for. So well done!

  64. Oh my god, this card with the cups is just fabulous ! Thank you for giving us a chance to win this exciting prize ! Fan of Simon Says I am a fan of Simon Says Stamp I would stay 🙂
