  • Thursday Break ~ Christmas Cheer

    Hello hello hello again everyone… Christmas is coming near!!! I hope you all are ready for this holly jolly holiday. I am definitely getting ready with getting my cards ready to be mailed and also wrapping gifts…

    Today, let’s take a little break with some of your favorite drink at Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog. Over there, I am sharing this Christmas card that I created with digital stamp set and newset released digital paper pack from Graciellie Design.

    Creating cards with digital stamps one of my favorite way of making a large batch of cards. I like use the Print-and-Cut feature from Silhouette Studio and cut them with my Silhouette Cameo. But all digital stamps and papers can be used with any digital cutting machines and editing software. So, I use this technique on this card and I colored the Pearlescent Watercolor Paint and Ranger Gold Stickles glue.

    I hope you like this card today. Thank you for stopping by our blog. Have a fabulous and caffeinated day!

    Leafy Wreath Thank You CAS Card

    Hello everyone… Today I have a leafy wreath thank you card to share with you all.

    This leafy wreath CAS card is not bulky though it has some layers of leaves. To create the wreath, I use the Trendy Leaves 2 Stamp Set and the Trendy Leaves 2 Coordinating Dies.

    I created a watercolored paper with distress oxide ink pads and water using smooshing technique. And then after I dried it, I stamped the leaves with VersaFine Clair Pinecone Ink Pad. And then I cut them with the coordinating dies. I arranged those leaves and glued them with dries-clear adhesive glue.

    I stamped the sentiment from the Heartfelt Thanks stamp set with Distress Ink Pad. Then I trimmed it into sentiment banner and added it on top of the wreath with adhesive glue.

    I added some splatter paints using the Distress Ink and waterbrush.

    My card today is inspired by the CUTplorations Challenge inspiration picture for this month:
