CAS Card ~ Black, White, and A Pop Of Color

Hello everyone… It is the day for having Thursday Coffee Break with me… I hope you all have been having a great week so far. Today, I have a CAS card with black, white, and a pop of color.

I am sharing this card and details at Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog. Coloring is one of the ways for me to calm down and relaxing. I love coloring with pre-printed images such as coloring book and also digital stamps using my favorite watercolored pencils and colored pencils.

Today, I have a CAS card that I created using one of the Power Poppy, Cup of Columbine. This digital stamp is also available in photopolymer clear stamp set just released this week called Cheerful Columbine.

I colored one of the flower with Leisure Arts Watercolored Pencils and using the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Clear Brush Pen. I love the sparkle on the flower and I wish it showed lots in the picture I took.

After I was done coloring the flower, I die cut the panel with Our Daily Bread Designs – Large Banner Diesand I added the banner on the black A2 card with dries-clear adhesive glue. The sentiment is from the Cheerful Columbine stamp set. I added the sentiment banner on top of the card with 3D foam tape.

I love working with digital stamps. They give me the freedom to resize the images to fit the projects I want to create. I hope you all also enjoy this post today.

THANK YOU so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

Precious Remembrance New Stamp Release and Giveaway ~ A Card For A Fantastic Friend

Precious Remembrance Shop

Hello everyone… Today I have a card for a fantastic friend to share with you all. It is a fun watercolored card.

I created my card with the new stamp set from Precious Remembrance Shop called Little Things that is released and available at their store today. This is a fun stamp set that you can use for creating happy mail for any occasion. To celebrate this new release, we have a blog hop and giveaway for you!!! More information at the end of the post.

I started with creating my watercolored background using Gelatos Pastel colors. I scribbled the Gelatos on a piece of Canson Watercolor Paper, and blended the color with finger and baby wipes.

Once the background is dried, I stamped the triangles from the Little Things Stamp Set using VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink Pad. And after that I die cut it with 2 sizes of Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangles Nesting Dies.

I added the first die cut background panel on a white A2 card base with dries-clear adhesive glue, and then I added the middle die cut panel on the card using fun foam and dies-clear adhesive for extra dimension.

I stamped both sentiments on white cardstock strips using VersaFine Clair Charming Pink Ink Pad using my Mini MISTI, trimmed them into banner and added on the card with dries-clear adhesive glue. I added the hearts from Bits & Pieces Love Coupon on them. And then, I embellished the card with some white pearl gems.

Things With Wings and Rainbow

CUTplorations May Challenge

Hello everyone…This whole month of May, we are the 31 Days of Celebrating Spring at STAMPlorations Blog. All the blog hop, linky partyies and challenges have one theme: Things With Wings. And today I have another Things With Wings card (plus some rainbow) to share with you.

On my card, I used For The Birds For The Birds DiesLuggage Tags Nesting Dies from STAMPlorations. For the background, I created a watercolored wash with watercolor paper, Distress Ink Oxide Ink and water using smooshing technique. After that I trimmed it and added it on white card.

Then, on another watercolor paper, I painted the rainbow colors with Koi watercolored paint. I only use 3 primary colors: Red, Yellow, Blue. I blended them to create the secondary colors: Orange, Green, Purple. This is a fun and quick way to create rainbow, and my daugthers LOVE to do this with their own watercolor paints.

I dried the watercolor panel with craft heater and then I cut it using the Luggage Tag die.

After that, I stamped the sentiment from For The Bird stamp set on the tag with Versafine Onyx Black using my MISTI, and I also stamped another sentiment on a white cardstock and trimmed it into sentiment banner.

I die cut the bird using the For The Bird Dies out of black cardstock, and after that I added some white acrylic paint splatters with fan brush. For the branch, I used the negative die cut that I cut out the image from previous project as a stencil. I traced it with Faber-Castell Black PITT Artist Pen. Then, I added the bird on top of it. (go here to see the project)

I added some more white acrylic paint on the tag with fan brush to give some extra texture on the background.

My tag is done. I hope you all get some inspiration today to create a project to share with us at CUTplorations May Challenge. For more inspirations, make sure to head over to the STAMPlorations blog to see the projects from the team.
