To Hug and to Hold - and a video tutorial

Hello stampers! 
Wow it has been a crazy day, at work and at home. It all started quite normal. I had little time to slow down at work and do the stuff that I have been procrastinating to do (web based training, updating stuff etc), and then went to the gym at lunch when I received a call that my 4yr old had a fever, so the craziness started.  And after crazy 10 days at work I thought I had little time to take my breath, but that changed around 4-5pm when I was asked to do something due tomorrow. LOL.

Despite everything, I do have a card to share with you today using a set that I fell in love with at first sight from the new Stampin' Up! catalog. It's called Baby Bear. I just love this bear, I don't think I can say it enough. I was going to make it a girl bear, but it turned into a boy bear. 
Please watch the video on how I made this card, and don't forget to subscribe to my YouTube Channel so you don't miss anything.

You are the icing on my cupcake

Hi stampers and Happy Monday! 
 Hope you all had great weekend. Mine was pretty good. On Saturday for first time I took Jason with me to the gym (only the girls have been before) and my little guy was quite popular. I guess quite few parents from the daycare go to the same gym and they know him. He had a blast lol. 

Then in the afternoon I let the kids play in the splash pool. They had a BLAST. Then yesterday it was a low key, and I slept in the afternoon while Jason and Milena took naps, because I went to bed at 4am the night before. And my excuse was I was cleaning my craft area. 

So last night I was able to make this card. I love this 3 step cupcake and the MISTI makes it so easy to layer all the layers!

For the Love of Coffee 2

I am back with my second card for the Coffee Lovers blog hop ( I know posting overload yesterday and today, considering I haven't posted much the past couple weeks).
For my card I used the same set (City Adventure by Hero Arts) and colors as the one I posted earlier, but used the Memory MISTI to stamp the background. I just love how it turned out. Scroll down for some step out photos.
I stamped the cup and dounat on separate piece of card stock, and then colored with my Copics , added some wink of stella clear and then cut them out.

To make the background, I positioned my paper in the Memory MISTI and secured with the magnets, then positioned the stamps and picked them up with the lid. Next I stamped on the card stock by moving the card stock 6 squares right and left until the row was completed and 3.5 squares (from the grid paper) up and down, until the card panel was fully stamped.
