Thursday Coffee Break: Coffee Card Set With Joy Clair

Coffee Loving Cardmakers

Hello everyone… I am back today with some coffee card set that I created with I create using 4 stamp sets from the Joy Clair Coffee stamp collection. They are one of the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog hop Super Sponsors.

Thursday Coffee Break: Coffee Card Set With Joy Clair

Stamp sets I used on these cards are Coffee Lovers Stamp Set, Coffee Quotes Stamp Set, Christmas Coffee Stamp Set, and Christmas Cocoa Stamp Set.

It is also a great way to stretch your seasonal stamps and use them for different occasions. If you have stamp set with general cups like the ones from Christmas Coffee Stamp Set, and Christmas Cocoa Stamp Set, you can use the cups and mix them up with sentiments from other stamp sets. For example on these cards, I mixed them with the sentiments from Coffee Lovers Stamp Set and Coffee Quotes Stamp Set.

Come over to the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog today to take a little break with me and your favorite coffee/tea/cocoa drinks to read the details how I created these cards.

THANKS A LATTE for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!

One Layer Watercolored Card With Get Well Wishes

Joy Clair January New Release Blog Hop

Joy Clair New Release and Design Team Blog Hop

Hello everyone… Welcome to Joy Clair January New Release Blog Hop. Today you will be inspired by the projects from the team showcasing all new 13 stamp sets of Everyday Life collection and Color By Faith collection. And I am sharing a one layer watercolored card with Get Well Wishes stamp set.

Check it out, isn’t this Get Well Wishes stamp set super adorable? You can build up any cute scene and send love through your handmade card using these images.

First, I stamped the images to build the background scene on a piece of watercolor paper using Versafine Onyx Black ink pad and Mini MISTI.

One Layer Card With Get Well Wishes

I heat set the ink with craft heater, although you do not actually need to dry it with craft heater becuase this ink dries quickly, permanent and great for watercoloring project.

I colored the images with watercolor pencils and watercolor brush pen. Simply as that. And once the images dried, I cut it out using one of the stitching rectangle dies from STAMPlorations.

I added the panel directly on the front card with dries clear liquid adhesive glue. And my card is finish 🙂 It is one of the quick way of creating cards. I hope you all are inspired today to create your own handmade cards and share the joy with others.

Butterfly Floral Mixed Media Card

CUTplorations January Challenge Reminder

Hello everyone… Butterfly is one of our favorite critters that we can find around the area where we live. I cannot wait for Spring 🙂 Butterflies are heaven-sent kissed of an angel… don’t you agree with that sentiment? And today I have a butterfly floral mixed media card to share with you

Butterfly Floral Mixed Media Card CUTplorations January Challenge

I created this card inspired by this snowy scene and colors from photo inspiration from CUTplorations January Challenge:

STAMPlorations - January 2017 CUTplorations Challenge

I started to create the background by tracing the Bold Florals ARTploratons Stencil on a piece of Arteza Watercolor paper with hot pink Tombow Dual Brush Pen. Then, I colored the inside of the flower and leaves with 2 shades of pink – purple for the flower petals, and 2 shades of green for the leaves. Using a small watercolor brush, I blended the colors and kindda like the bleeding effect.

Next I fill the white space with light blue Tombow Dual brush pen and also blended out the color with small watercolor brush.

I dried the watercolored background panel with craft heater. Then I added some white acrylic paint on it using fan paint brush. I dried it again. And last step I sprayed some of the Frost Sheer Shimmer Spritz to add the extra sparkle and frost look in the panel. I dried it right away with craft heater becuase I did not want the ink from Tombow Dual Brush Pens reacted too much with this shimmer spray. Check out the detail on the picture below… Don’t you love the shimmer frosted look on it? 🙂

Butterfly Floral Mixed Media Card CUTplorations January Challenge

I cut out the watercolored panel with the largest die from Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangles Nesting Dies and I added it on a white top-fold card base with Xtreme Tombow Adhesive.

Next step is I created the second panel of this card. It is pretty simple. I simply added some yellow and orange watercolor washes on a piece of Arteza watercolor paper. I dried it with craft heater and then I stamped the sentiment from Trendy Butterflies 2 Stamp Set with Versafine Onyx Black using Mini MISTI. I cut it out with the smallest size of the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangles Nesting Dies and then I added it on the card with Xtreme Tombow Adhesive.

Butterfly Floral Mixed Media Card CUTplorations January Challenge

Last step is the butterfly. I grab a photo glossy paper, Eggplant Alcohol Ink, and Alcohol Ink Blender to create an alcohol ink background. Then I added some white acrylic paint splatters on it and set it aside to dry for a while. It is not that long of waiting. The acrylic paint dries quickly and we also cannot use craft heater to dry the glossy photo paper, becuase the heat will ruin the paper. Trust me, I learned it.

Once the paper dried well, I cut it out with the solid butterfly die from Flutter Zen 1 Layering Dies. I added it on the card with 3D foam tape for extra dimension to the card. And the card is done.

Each card has the same style but I created the background and stamped the flower in 3 different ways. First card, I tried the foiling technique with stamp and embossing.

I stamped the flower with Versamark Ink, added some super fine white embossing powder, heat set it, added the DecoFoil paper on top of the embossed image, and run it through the laminating machine without carrier. It works like MAGIC 😀 Check it out…

I added some watercolor paint splatters on the card panel and stamped the image with Rose Bud Memento Dew Drop Ink and Mini MISTI. I stamped the sentiment 3 times to get the darker shade and bolder. I did the same step for the rest of the cards.

For these second card, I created the background with smooshing technique using Distress Ink pads, water, and acetate plastic.

I stamped the image with Versafine Onyx Black ink pad and color it with Tombow Dual Brush Pens. I used Spectrum Noir Sparkle Brush Pen to blend make it look like watercolor and added some glitters at the same time. Check out the detail…

For the last card, I did the same step with the second card to create the background with darker color. Then I sprayed the whole background panel with mixture of Perfect Pearl powder and water for the pearly shiny background.

Sending You A Latte Love

Coffee Loving Cardmakers Sponsor Solo

Hello everyone… Today, I am joining Amy at Coffee Loving Cardmakers – Sponsor Solo post that showcasing Craftin Desert Divas. And I am sharing a CAS card, Sending You A Latte Love.

I created my card with the Coffee Put Cutie digital stamp and Fancy Frame Dies from Craftin Desert Divas.

I started with created the base panel. I distressed the edges of the creme cardstock with distresser tool. Then I added it on the white card base. Next, I created the background with some Distress Inks with smooshing technique. After that I cut it out with one of the Fancy Frame Dies. I added some stitching on the card and then after that I added it on the card with strong adhesive.

When you get the digital, you will receive the blank white and black for you to color, and you also will get the one that already colored and ready to print. That’s the one that I used on my card.

First, I open the image on my photo software, resized it, and then I duplicate 3 time. Then I printed it using my inkjet printer on a white cardstock. I fussy cut them one by one 🙂

I added the first image on the card with liquid adhesive. Then, I added the second and third images with 3D foam tape.

For the sentiment, I hand-written it with Tombow Fudenosuke soft brush pen. I added some pink enamel dots on the side of the card.

And… I am inspired by Kerry’s sketch. You can check out her inspiration here.

That’s all my card to share with you… But… Before you go… Amy has a little giveaway… Leave a comment on her blog post HERE for a chance to win a Craftin Desert Diva’s $20 shop credit! Commenting will close on January 14th at 11:59 pm pacific and the winner will be announced on Friday, January 19th.
