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.

Graciellie Design Digital Stamp and Paper

Hello everyone… Today, I am super excited to share my very first digital card project, Friends Like You as an ambassador to Graciellie Design. Gracie invited me to join her ambassador team last December and it is new crafting adventure to me using digital stamp and paper. So thankful for this opportunity!

On this card, I used the new digital stamp, Friends Like You, and the new digital paper collection, Pink & Blue Watercolored Papers.

There are several ways to work with digital stamps and papers. You can simply use Word Document, or anything similar to that program. Also, you can use any of your digital cutting software designer, such as Silhouette Studio or Cricut.

I use my Silhouette Studio software, which you can download here for the free basic software and install on your computer or laptop.

I open the png files from the Friends Like You on the Silhouette Studio working place, arrange them, and resize them. And then print them with my Cannon printer in black and white setting. I let them dried overnight before color them becuase it is an inkjet printer. You also can use craft heater to dry the ink when you want to work faster 🙂

To create the 3D look flower, first I colored the 3 flowers with the 4 blue shades from The Spectrum Noir Blendable Pencils – The Primaries set. After that, I fussy cut them in 2 sizes. First size is the small size for the center of the flower, and then the medium size for the middle. I leave the last flower in the original size as the base.

Using my curling tool, I shape them. Then I used Art Glitter Dries Clear to stacked them together.

I added some gems in the middle of the flower for extra bling 🙂

As for the sentiment, I printed them on a textured white cardstock, and cut it using one of the We R Memory Keepers rectangle scallop dies.

I printed the on of the Pink & Blue Watercolored Papers on a white printing paper, trimmed it and added it on a white cardstock. I would print directly on white cardstock next time 🙂

I added a dark grey cardstock as a mat on the white card base, then added the digital paper mat on it with 3d foam tape.

After that I added the sentiment label and flower on the card with permanent strong adhesive glue. I finished my card with some white sequins for more bling on it.

I totally enjoy working with Graciellie Design digital stamps and papers. She has beautiful digital collections at her store, especially you want to check the new Valentine’s Day theme sets!

My hope is that you are inspired to continue creating and share the joy and love with others through your handmade cards. Thank you so much for visiting me today and may you all have a fabulous day!
