Today, I am using Unity Stamp Company stamp sets: September 2016 Kit Of The Month and Dream of Being.

I stamped them with Ranger Archival Ink Pad on a piece of Canson Watercolor paper. Then I watercolored them with Distress Inks – Spiced Marmalade, Mowed Lawn, Antique Linen, Rusty Hinge, Ripe Persimmon, and Crushed Olive. I added the colors on my craft mat and picked them up with wet watercolor brush and just adding water to blend them and move them filling the images. I used my CTMH Craft Heater to dry it.

I added a small paper doily on the card. Then I wrapped some May Arts – Natural Twine on the watercolored panel and I added it on the card with 3D foam tape.

My card is pretty simple watercolor card today and I hope you are inspired to continue creating coffee/cocoa/tea projects this fall!

THANKS A LATTE for visiting me today! Have a fabulous blessed day 🙂

Watercolored Card: Thinking Of You

Today I had a chance to sit in my craft room, cleaned it and made a mess again 😀 But I am so thankful that I could get some things done today. I made couple cards for Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and you can read all about it here.

I enjoyed coloring one of the gorgeous flowers from Chamberry – ArtPlay coloring book. This flower is printed on high-quality paper that can handle any coloring mediums. I watercolored it twice, first with the SimplyArt watercolor paint and then layered it with some Pearlescent watercolor paint. The paper did not peel off at all after all the water I added on it.

After the painted flower dried well, fussy cut it outside the frame and I added it on the black card base with adhesive runner. I stamped the sentiment from Essential by Ellen – Mondo Hydrangea stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black on a piece of white cardstock, cut the other end of it into a banner shape, then added on the card with 3d foam tape. I finished the card with some pearl gems.

I made this for a dear friend who has been in my thoughts lately. My prayer that she will be encouraged by God to go through her days with hope and faith in Him only.

I hope this card also be an inspiration for you today. THANK YOU so much for visiting me today and have a fabulous blessed day!

2016 Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day 2

Welcome to the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day 2. This blog hop and link up runs from September 23rd at 6:00 AM Pacific Time until September 30th at 11:59 PM Pacific Time.

Let’s gather your coffee/cocoa/tea crafting supplies, create and share with us by linking up your project(s) here. By linking up your projects, you have chances to win the giveaway prizes from the Super Sponsors! Also, you can inspire others 🙂

Today, I am making these 2 cards with STAMPlorations:

29265007934_0f43d5e840_z

On the first card I am inspired by Ksenija’s card at STAMPlorations – CASEplorations September Challenge.

I stamped the coffee cup from Latte Love stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black and masking it on a piece of Canson watercolor paper. Then I colored them with watercolor paint. I stamped the sentiment from Coffee Happy Stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black, cut them into trips, drew lines on them with LePen journaling pen, and I added them on the card with 3D foam tape. On the background, I added some homemade modeling paste using Splatter Stencil from Ranger for extra texture. I guess the card turned out to be a mixed media card 🙂

And the second card, I used the digital stamp from STAMPlorations and colored it with watercolor paint. I used fall theme pattern paper from ekSuccess that I got from Walmart. The sentiment is from The Cutting Cafe – Autumn Sentiment Frame Card Frames printables. I added some mini staplers on the sentiment banner and added it on the card with 3d foam tape. I finished the card with some brown gems.
