Find your bliss

Hi everyone! Gotta say “cha, cha, cha… it’s Friday” and I’m once again doing the happy dance! Love my Fridays! Hope you have a great weekend planned! Today is my post day on the Dare 2B Artzy blog and I’m stoked to share my DT inspiration project using the Paisley Bliss and Tall dark & Rich stamp sets, Pomegranate ink and Fields of Joy Orange Plaid paper.

I created an adorable shaped card this time – a to-go coffee cup complete with a corrugated wrap! And fun paper and sentiments! This was definitely trial and error because I didn’t make a prototype first, and I ended up tossing the first one which didn’t make me very happy! But I sure LOVE how it turned out! :D


I created the cup out of white cardstock and added a decorative band made of pretty plaid paper layered on orange cardstock along with a corrugated wrap. I cut the sentiment with a stitched oval die and adhered several loops of cord behind it for a little interest, and finished it with several blue Dot Sparklers.


I kept the inside fairly simple with a stamped sentiment on a layered panel.

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
