Kat Scrappiness Charity Blog Hop for Coffee Oasis!

Good morning!!!!  Today is the start of the Kat Scrappiness Charity Blog Hop for Coffee Oasis!!  When I found out that Kathleen was going to do this, I knew I wanted to participate!




Learn more about Coffee Oasis:
Coffee Oasis is a coffee shop/organization located in Washington State that provides help for our youth including programs for drug abuse, homelessness, violence and poverty. (You can read more about their programs here: https://thecoffeeoasis.com/youth-programs/. )
How you can help Coffee Oasis
We are hoping that this blog hop will bring awareness to organizations such as Coffee Oasis and that we can raise a little money and support or them! Kat Scrappiness has pledged to donate 15% of all sales proceeds to Coffee Oasis and our other sponsors have all donated prizes to give away to all of you blog and youtube hoppers! So please visit them and show some support. You can also donate directly to Coffee Oasis here: http://kskat.com/donate. Even if you can only donate $1 or $5, it doesn't matter. Every little bit will help a kid in need.

I wanted to make a Christmasy coffee card, and I don't have a ton of Kat Scrappiness products so I used what I had! I'm a huge fan of these Distressed Edge dies, so I used the Circles, Squares and Rectangles for this card.




That's lots of fun projects and prizes so be sure to comment on every post! There are two ways to WIN: (1) Participants either need to make a project and link theirs when the hop opens and Kathleen will pick random winners. Everyone linking their project is eligible. (2) People can also leave comments on each participant's entry because Kathleen will also pick a super commenter. Our hop works exactly like the Coffee Lover's Blog hop if you're familiar with it. Thanks!

Thanks so much for looking and happy hopping! Laters!!!!

Woodsy Winter -- Momenta Brand Ambassador Post!!

Happy Hump Day!!  I've got another Momenta Brand Ambassador post for you today, and I'm playing along again with the #MerryAndBrightChallenge!  Today's fun theme is #WoodlandCreatures and I instantly knew I collage together various die cut reindeer and trees to create a scene.  I also used my brand new Snowflake and Deer embossing folder set on the background!  After embossing a piece of watercolor cardstock twice with the Snowflake folder, I colored it with various shades of blue and grey from the Brea Reese Jewels and Classics Professional Watercolor Sets.

If you missed out on the first few days of the #MerryAndBrightChallenge, here's all the scoop on what's coming up!

Simply create a card using each day's theme and your favorite Momenta, Brea Reese and or Art-C products and post it using the hashtag #MerryandBrightChallenge!!!  Be sure to tag whichever company you use, #breareese @breareese #mymomenta @mymomenta #myartc @my_artc with your creations!! 

Now, back to what I made!  


I used a few different paper pads to create this card. I always think the paper is the star of the show!  The Metallic Ink paper pad was what I used for the main scenic image.  I added in extra trees cut from the Abstract Marble and Watercolor paper pads to make everything pop.

Be sure to check out all the fun Momenta products!  Thanks so much for looking and happy crafting.  Laters!!

It's already so much fun!!!

Since today's theme is #WinterGreenery I decided I wanted to use a bunch of die cuts to create a festive card.  I used some new items that are only available at Walmart Canada right now, and mixed them in with some Brea Reese and Momenta favorites.  I started with a piece of the new Watercolor Paper and embossed with the woodgrain folder from the Fall Cut and Embossing Folder Set.  I then colored it with Brown watercolor from the Classics Professional Watercolors set.  I die cut a couple of pinecones from the same Momenta die set watercolor paper, and after embossing them, I colored them with a mixture of the same Brown watercolor I used on the background and Brown Watercolor Creams.  I gathered various scraps I had of paper watercolored with Glitter Inks, Watercolor Inks and scraps from various Momenta paper pads, then die cut them with greenery dies.  I layered everything together and added a bow to finish it off.


Be sure to check out the Glitter Inks and all the other Brea Reese products!!  Thanks so much for looking and happy crafting.  Laters!!
