Coffee Loving Cardmakers | Hello Bobalicious

Hello… hello… hello… Coffee loving crafty friends! Happy Friday! Today, I am joining a fun bobalicious collaboration blog hop with Coffee Loving Cardmakers and Paper Smooches!

This blog hop starts at Paper Smooches Blog and Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog where you all can see the full list of participants. And check out the info about the giveaway and how you can enter to win. Info at the bottom… You should arrive from my coffee loving teammate, Kerry.

On this blog hop, we are featuring the newly released stamp sets and die: Caffeinated Stamp Set, Caffeinated Two Stamp Set, and Caffeinated Icons Dies.

Here’s my first card that I created using the Caffeinated Icons Dies to create that cup. I cut put the silver glitter cardstock for the base cup, white cardstock for the lid, and pattered cardstock for the sleeve.

For the background, I used the matching patterned glitter cardstock from the same paper stack, then I cut out a piece of vellum paper to add on the rectangle frame.

For the sentiment and cup logo, they are from the Caffeinated Stamp Set. For the circle logo, I stamped it with Pinecone VersaFine Clair Ink pad and heat embossed it couple times with clear embossing powder. And I stamped the word hello on a cream cardstock and trimmed it into sentiment ribbon banner.

On my second card, I use the Blossoming Buds Stamp Set to create that patterned background. I stamped the flower with VersaMark ink pad on a soft lavender cardstock. I trimmed it and added on a white card with EZ Runner Grand.

To create this bubble tea cup, I stamped the cup with Nocturne VersaFine Clair and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. After that, I cut it with the matching die.

I stamped the bubbles inside the cup with Blue Belle VersaFine Clair and heat embossed them also with clear embossing powder. After that, I colored the cup with the Leisure Arts Double Ended Markers and waterbrush. I sprinkled with some water and dabbed it off with paper towel.

I dried it with craft heater and then wipe off the extra color on top of the embossed bubbles. I added extra highlight on the bubbles with Signo Ball White Gel Pen.

I stamped then sentiment from the Caffeinated Two Stamp Set on another lavender cardstock with the Blue Belle VersaFine Clair ink pad, trimmed it, and added it on the card with 3D foam tape. Then, I stamped the other words on the card with the same ink.

Today, we are featuring the new birthday cover plate dies: Zen Doodled Birthday Cake and Zen Doodled Birthday Gifts. And I have 2 projects to share with you all that I created using the new Zen Doodle Birthday Gifts Cover Plate Die:

First project is this birthday gift box. I made the box with the WRMK Envelope Punch Board and patterned green cardtock.

The front of the box, I decorated it with the cover plate die cut. I cut out a light green and blue metallic cardstock. I glued it on a white cardstock. I took some of the blue pieces and added it to the gift box and bag.

For the sentiment, I used one of the Just Everyday Greetings Clear Stamps. I added the sticker on a white cardtock, and trimmed around it. I added on the panel with adhesive glue.

I added the finished top front panel on the box with permanent glue and then tie up a piece of ribbon around the box for embellishment.

For the second project, it is quick and simple birthday card. I used the metallic blue piece that I cut with the cover plate.

I made a watercolored background with Leisure Arts Double Ended Markers and waterbrush. I used the smoohing technique to blend the colors and dried it with craft heater. After that, I sprayed it with some water using distress bottle and dabbed off the water with paper towel.

I added the watercolored background panel on a white card base with adhesive glue, and then I added the blue die cut panel on top of it using dries-clear adhesive glue.

I cut out a white cardstock using the Celebrate Big Phrase Die, I cut it twice. After that, I stacked them with dries-clear permanent glue. I added it on the card with the same glue.

I hope you all enjoy these projects and hope you all can come to join us at this BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION!!!!

October Stencil Challenge | Coffee Is Life

Hello everyone… We are in the middle of October already! And the Fall finally arrived to the area where we live. I hope you all have a wonderful season.

My card today is a mixed media, clean and simple with coffee theme:

I am using the Make Marks 1 Stencil by Helen G. Designs (oh that’s me! *wink wink*) and the Coffee Cup ARTplorations Stencil to create that background on a blacked watercolored paper using the Deco Foil Metallix Gel – Black Ice and Deco Foil Stencil Pal. I added extra white splatters with white acrylic paint with water and fan brush.

For the sentiment, it is one of the fun clear sticker sentiment from the Just Caffeinate Clear Stickers. I added the sticker on a white cardstock and then trimmed it with scissors around the sticker to give it a sturdy base. I added on the card with 3D foam tape.

Card Ideas For Her

Hello crafty friends… Hope you all are well! Today I have couple more card ideas for her that you can make and send out to your friends to cheer them up and to lift them up.

October is Cancer Awareness Month. Joy Clair released a new stamp set, Hope. This stamp set is dedicated for those who are fighting the cancer. I love this stamp set. The sentiments are very uplifting and encouraging, especially the Bible Verses. The ribbon and gloves are just perfect!

I used the Broken Brick Background Stamp for the background.

My second card is created using one of the newest stamp set also called Mermaid At Heart. I paired it up with the Mermaid Tail Background Stamp.

I used Leisure Arts Double Ended Markers and water with smooshing technique to create the watercolored, ocean background. I scribbled the markers on a craft mat and sprayed some water that turn the marker color into watercolor paint. I added the watercolor paper in it and smooshed around. I dried it with craft heater and then did it the same step to build up the colors.

For stamping on both cards, I used VersaFine Clair ink pads and Hero Arts Unicorn White Pigment Ink Pad.

I hope you visit Joy Clair Blog to read full detail how I created these cards.

I am using one of my favorite Joy Clair stamps, Tea Time Stamp Set. I stamped the images on watercolor paper with VersaFine Onyx Black ink pad with MISTI, and then I colored them with Leisure Arts Double Ended Markers and water brush.

I dried the watercolored images with craft heater and then I fussy cut them with micro-tip scissors.

On the background, I use the Deco Foil Clear Toner Sheet – Endless Leaves and Gina K Design Fancy Foil – Dazzling Orange.

I simply added the foil on top of the pre-printed clear toner sheet and run it through my laminating machine. After that, I trimmed, and then I added on the kraft card with dries-clear adhesive glue.

I added the watercolored images on top of the card with 3D foam tape.
