Coffee and Sunshine

Hello hello hello every one… I hope you all are doing well. Today, I have a couple of coffee cards with hope they brighten up your day.

I share this cards at Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog. My cards today, I created using the Brewtiful Stamp Set and Sunburst Stencil from Miss Ink Stamps.

I sprayed the stencil lightly with Pixie Spray and put it on top of a piece of watercolor paper. I added the Mustard Seed and Wild Honey Distress Ink used blending brush. And then I removed it from the watercolor paper.

There were still some inks on the stencil, I sprayed with some water and then I added it on top of another watercolor paper. I added paper towel on top of the stencil, gently pushed it on the paper. This technique also called stamping with stencil. Super easy way to create a distressed watercolor background.

I dried the watercolor background with craft heater and then I cut out both background panels with Divinity Designs – Pierced Rectangles Dies and Craftin Desert Divas – Fancy Frame Dies (sadly they closed their store…).

I added both background panels on the white cards with Scrapbook Adhesives E-Z Runner Grand.

The stamped imaged and sentiment were stamped with permanent india ink that is great for both coloring with copic markers or watercolor medium.

I colored the cups and flowers with Leisure Arts Double Ended Markers and waterbrush. I dried them and then fussy cut them with fine point scissors.

I added them in the middle of the card with 3D foam tape, and I added the sentiment and flower on top of them with liquid adhesive.

Thanks a latte for stopping by… I hope you all have a caffeinated and fabulous day!

All Rinea Glossy Solid Foiled Papers have gold on one side and other gorgeous color the other side. On my background, I used the gold side, trimmed it to 4″x5.25″, and embossed it with stripe embossing folder. I added it on a white card with double-side tape.

I cut out another white cardstock using 2 sizes of Divinity Designs Pierced Rectangle Dies to create a frame. And then, I added it on top of the foiled paper with some double-sided tape.

I cut out one of the emerald starstruck foiled papers (from the Jolly Foiled Paper Variety Pack) using one of the Divinity Designs Double Stitched Rectangles Dies. I added on top of the gold foiled paper with double-sided tape.

I embellished the card with some of the football images from the Fall, Family and Football stamp set

I stamped the football goal post image with Ghost Ink on Ebony/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper. I let it dried about a minute and the wiped it off with Purell Handwipe. After that I fussy cut it with micro-tips scissors.

I did the same stamping steps for the helmet and ball. I used the Violet/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper for the helmet and used the Mocha/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper from the Autumn Foiled Paper Variety Pack.

And I stamped the banner on a white cardstock with Nocturne VersaFine Clair Ink Pad and then the sentimenti in the middle of the banner with Fantasia VersaFine Clair Ink Pad. After that, I dried them with craft heater and fussy cut them with micro-tips scissors.

I added the goal posts, helmet, and ball on the card with permanent adhesive, and I added the sentiment with 3D foam tape.

Spooky Hello…

Hello hello hello everyone… Here’s a little spooky hello card for you. It might be a little early for Halloween card, but since today is Friday the 13th, why not, right?

I use one of the newly released digital stamp sets from Graciellie Design called, Spooky Hello Mega Digital Stamp Set. But as you can see yourself, it is not a scary spooky theme stamp set.

I like to use Silhouette Studio software to work with digital stamp sets. I used the print-and-cut with the pumpkin. I printed it with Laser printer, and then cut it with Silhouette Cameo 3.

After that, I added a piece of the Gina K. Designs Fancy Foil – Dazzling Orange on the pumpkin, put it inside the carrier pocket, and then run it through the laminator. When it’s cold, I removed the foil and voila! Glimmer, dazzling, pumpkin!

You can leave as is, it is cute already. But, I decided to colored the pumpkin with Leisure Arts Double Ended Markers and waterbrush.

For the background, the bottom panel, I created it with some alcohol inks and DecoFoil Gold Transfer Sheet on a glossy photo paper. I trimmed it and added on the white card with E-Z Runner Grand.

The second patterned background, I created it using the candycorn image from the same digital stamp set. I duplicated it and printed it on a 8.5 x 11 white cardstock with Laser Printer in black and white. After that I colored the candycorns with Leisure Arts Double Ended Markers. I cut it with one of the Craftin Desert Divas – Fancy Frames. I added on top of the alcohol ink background with permanent adhesive glue.

I added some twine on the card for the wreath, and secure the twine with permanent adhesive glue. Then I added the pumpkin and sentiment label on the card with 3D foam tape.

I hope this card make this “Spooky Friday the 13th” be less spooky to you all… Thanks a bunch for stopping by today. Have a fabulous day!

Hello everyone… Wish you all a happy and good day today. I am thankful it is bit cooler here but we are still having Summer weather for sure. But, I hope this mixed media Fall card brings the Fall season early to you…

On this mixed media Fall card, I used the newly released digital stamp set, Grateful Heart, from Graciellie Design. This fall flower bouquet is absolutely GORGEOUS! I love the beautiful font combo set for the sentiments, too.

I trimmed the printed watercolored paper into 4 – 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and then I colored one of them with Leisure Arts Double Ended Markers and watercolor brush. After that, I dried the panel with craft heater and then I cut it with one of the Divinity Designs – Double Stitched Rectangles Dies with Gemini Jr. Machine.

The patterned background, I created it with yellow and orange acrylic paints and gel printing plate. After the mono printed paper dried, I trimmed it into 4″ x 5 1/4″ and I added it on a white card base with E-Z Runner Grand.

I added the watercolored panel on top of the card with with E-Z Runner Grand and then I added some splatters with white acrylic paint spray, Finetec Gold metallic watercolor paint, and fan brush. I dried it one more time.

For the sentiment, I printed some of them on a white cardstock, and then cut one of them with the Divinity Design – Double Stitched Pennant Flags Dies using my Gemini Jr. Machine. I added the sentiment label on the card with 3D foam tape for extra dimension.

Anything Goes Week 404-405

a2z Scrapbooking | Coffee or Tea?

Hello crafty friends, I am so thrilled to be a guest designer today at a2zscrapbooking blog!

This month’s challenge theme is Anything Goes and I go with coffee and tea cards for this challenge:

On my first card, I use the Kit-Tea Stamp & Cut set. I stamped the flowers and leaves image on a watercolor paper with VersFine Onyx Black ink pad.

And then, on my craft mat, I scribble some of the Double-Ended markers (yellow and red), spray with water, and then I smooshed in the watercolor paper. I cut it out with one of the rectangle dies and I added it on a yellow card with E-z Runner Grand.

I stamped the cat in a cup image with same ink pad, and the I colored it with the same markers and waterbrush. After that, I dried it with craft heater and then cut it with the matching die.

I added on the card with 3D foam tape. Next, I stamped the sentiment on a white cardstock with the same ink pad and then trimmed it into sentiment label. I added it on the top left card with 3D foam tape also.

Next project is this CAS coffee card. It is pretty simple to make. So, I started with creating the gradient square watercolored background.

On an acrylic block, I scribble some of the Double Ended markers (red and pink), I sprayed it with water, and then I stamped it on a watercolor paper. I let it sit on the card for a while and held it with some more stamping block.

While waiting for the watercolor paint to dry, I stamped the mug with Delicata Golden Glitz ink pad on another watercolor paper. I dried the ink with craft heater and then colored it with the Double Ended Markers and waterbrush. After that, I dried it with craft heater and then I fussy cut it with microtips scissors. I stamped the foam and sentiment on the cup with Mini MISTI using Memento Cocoa ink pad.

I removed the acrylic blocks from the watercolor paper, then I trimmed it slightly smaller than the white card base. I added the background paper on the card with E-Z Runner Grand, and then I added the coffee mug in the middle of it with 3D foam tape. I decorated it with some natural twine ribbon.

That’s all my projects today! I cannot wait to see what you will create for this month’s challenge!
