Fall 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day 2: Keep Calm, Coffee On

Welcome to the Fall 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog hop! This is one fun and amazing blog hop for all coffee/tea/cocoa loving crafters from all around the world! You all are invited to play along and share your projects with us for the whole week.

Today is Day 2 of the Blog Hop. If you are new and would like to play along, here’s the detail and information about it:

When: Friday, September 15 – Friday, September 22
Time: 6 am pacific
THEME: FALL
USE: coffee, tea &/or cocoa images

Gather your supplies and get ready for the whole week of blog hop, inspirations, and link up party! And…by linking up your projects, you have chance to win the amazing giveaway prizes at Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog!

My card today is created using But First Coffee Stamp Set from Echo Park Paper, one of the Super Sponsors this season.

I tried a new technique to me when I created that background. I swiped the Hero Arts Autumn Ombre Ink Pad directly on a white cardstock and then I die cut it with ODBD Pierced Rectangle Die. I like that the background look like rustic painted wood panel or fence 🙂

Then I stamped the cups with Taylored Expressions Pumpkin Ink Pad using Mini MISTI and fussy cut them.

For the sentiment, I stamped it using Mini MISTI on a white cardtock with Memento Rich Cocoa Ink Pad, then I die cut it with ODBD Pierced Oval Dies. Don’t you love that sentiment?

I added the cups and sentiment on the card with some adhesive and 3D foam tape. I would say it is a one quick and CAS card to make 🙂 I hope you can enjoy it, too!

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Have a fabulous caffeinated day!

Here’s my first project for the Day 1 using Joy Clair stamps, one of the Super Sponsors for this hop.

I stamped the sentiment from Joy Clair – Coffee Quotes on a white cardstock using Autumn Ombre Ink Pad and then I embossed it with Stitched Oval Dies, and then I die cut and embossed it again with the Double Stitched Rectangle Die.

I wrapped the natural twine on the corner of the card and secure it with some liquid adhesive. And then I added the panel on the card base with some 3D foam adhesive for extra dimension.

The leaves I used are from Joy Clair – Fall Leaves. I stamped them with the same ink pad, and I fussy cut them. And I tucked it under the wrapped twine on the card with some liquid adhesive.

I finished the card with some matching colors sequins assortment that I actually found them at Dollar Store a while ago 🙂

STAMPlorations Typografia In Faith Blog Hop and Giveaway

Hello everyone… WELCOME to STAMPlorations Typografia In Faith Blog Hop! Today I join the STAMPlorations team sharing projects with the new stamp set collection from STAMPlorations, called Typografia In Faith.

Visit STAMPlorations Blog to read and see the full details of the whole Typografia Collection and the design team projects. And… before you leave, do not forget to give each of the designer some love about their project for chances to win giveaway prize.

For this blog hop, I created 2 projects. The first one is a journaling page insert using vellum paper that I added inside my New Living Translation – Inspired Journaling Bible.

To create the insert, first I added the vellum paper (8.5″ x 11″) in between the pages, I traced it with pencil, and then I cut it out with scissors. Or you also can measure you Bible page, and then cut out your vellum paper with paper trimmer, without tracing it first.

STAMPlorations Typografia In Faith - Romans 11:1

I stamped the Faith – Typografia in Faith stamp using Regular MISTI, StazOn Black Jet Ink, and then I sprinkled some clear embossing powder on it. I pre-heated my craft heater for at least 30 seconds or more to avoid wrinkling the vellum paper, and then heat set the embossing powder. The vellum paper wrinkled just a very little bit.

STAMPlorations Typografia In Faith - Romans 11:1

After that, I traced some flowers at the bottom of the page using Bloom Silhouettes ARTPlorations Stencil and Micron Pen 0.3, and using Micron Pen 1 to fill in each flower. These Micron Pens are india ink, so it dries permanently and bold.

STAMPlorations Typografia In Faith - Romans 11:1

I smooshed some of the the Distress Inks on the back of the vellum page to create the night background sky. On this page, I used Antique Linen, Victorian Velvet, Seedless Preserves, Faded Jeans, and Black Soot. After that, using my finger I blended them. It is way easier if you have blending tool, I do not have it 🙂 And then I used paper towel to wipe off the extra ink.

STAMPlorations Typografia In Faith - Romans 11:1

For extra texture and stars, I sprayed from water using Ranger Spray bottle, and wiped it off with paper towel right away. Water will curl the vellum paper if you let it sit too long.

And my second project is a mixed media tag using the God’s Strength – Typografia In Faith stamp.

I created the tag galaxy background using Gelatos and splatter of white acrylic paints. And then using Mini MISTI, I stamped the God’s Strength – Typografia In Faith stamp with VersaMark ink pad, and added some WOW! Jade Glitter Embossing Powder, heat set it, and then stamped again with VersaMark Ink Pad, added some mixed white-and-glitter embossing powder on it, and heat set again. The result is that looks like it has shadow. Kidda make it pop up, don’t you think? 🙂

Those are all my projects to share with you today.

CAS Cards with Joy Clair Stamps, Foiled Paper and Ghost Ink Pad

Hello everyone… I have a couple of cards that I would love to shared with you today using new stamps and products.

On my cards today I used the Rinea Emerald/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper. It is a beautiful emerald green on one side, and gold on the other side.

Stamp sets I used on the cards are from Joy Clair: Salt and Light, Bible Journaling Stamp Set and Faith Quotes, Bible Journaling Stamp Set.

This Ghost Ink is new product from Rinea and I am pretty impressed for the first time I used with Rinea Foiled Paper. What it does is removing the color pigment from the foil paper and create a ghost stamped image. Great for creating background.

To use the Ghost Ink is very simple. It does not need any special thing to do, beside stamp and wipe it off with paper towel. It works well on darker colors, but not on silver or gold.

Come over to Joy Clair Blog today to see the full post and steps how I created these cards. I hope you all will visit met there. THANK YOU so much for being here today! Have a great day!
