Coffee and Love Shaker Card

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!! I hope you all feel the love on this special day.

Here’s a special card for you all today… I made this coffee and love shaker card using the new Coffee or Cocoa Digital Stamp Set and the new Heart Card SVG Cut Files from Graciellie Design.

I cut out one of the Heart Cards using my Silhouette Cameo and created a shaker background. I added couple piece of acetate plastic using double sided tape, and then I added some foam tapes around the hearts cut out and added some fine and jumbo glitter on the window, and added it on an A2 white card base using Art Glitter Dries Clear permanent adhesive glue.

I used the print-and-cut feature from Silhouette Software for the image and sentiment. I printed the mug and sentiment on mixed media paper and then cut them with my Silhouette Cameo. This is my most favorite way of working with digital stamps!

I colored the mug with Sakura Koi Watercolor. Then I added it on the card with Art Glitter Dries Clear adhesive glue.

I added some white acrylic paint splatter on the card with fan brush. I dried the background lightly with craft heater, but cannot be too hot becuase it can wrap the card and melt the recycled plastic and glitters.

I added the sentiment on the card with thin 3D foam tape and embellished the card with some red sequins, too.

I think this card speaks lots of love…. I hope you like it, too!

Mardi Gras Event | Unashamed Mixed Media Art Journal

Welcome to Joy Clair – Mardi Gras event! This is a special event featuring their stamp sets. And today, I have an art journal to share with you all.

There are many things I did in the past that make me feel ashamed of myself… But when you know the truth that God is gracious and kind enough to forgive us and reveal His love for us. I won’t be unashamed anymore, there will no more judgement in Christ Jesus!

On this mixed media art journal, I use the newly released Color by Faith Collection, Unashamed Stam Set. This is a great set that can be used for Bible Journaling, cards, tags, home decors, and any other projects.

I used this mixed medias technique to create the base background. I added another layers on it using the Crisscross ARTplorations Stencil, VersaFine Clair Verdant Ink, VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink Pad, and blending brush.

I stamped the streamers, chains and sentiment from the Unashamed Stamp Set with Versafine Nocturne Ink Pad and Tulip Red Ink Pad.

I stamped more on the page with some images from the Mardi Gras Stamp Set using VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink Pad.

Then I added some gold and white splatters using Gold metallic acrylic paint and white acrylic paint, water, and brush.

I stamped the makes, feathers, gems, streamers, and sticks from the Unashamed Stamp Set on Rinea Foil Papers (Pastel Pack and Sapphire/Gold) using Rinea Ghost Ink Pad and StazOn Jet Black Ink Pad.

The ones I stamped with Rinea Ghost Ink Pad, I let it dried for 10-15 minutes and then using baby wipe to wipe it off. The ones I stamped with StazOn Ink Pad, I let it dried completely. After that, I fussy cut them with micro-tips scissors.

I added all the foil pieces on the page with some Art Glitter Dries Clear Adhesive Glue. It is one of my favorite glue to use on mixed media page.

I am not usually create with bright colors, but I like how this page turned out.

Hey Love Blog Hop | You & Me, Love Forever

Hey everone… We are at the end of January! That means Valentine’s Day will be here in 14 more days! Today, I have a love themed card to share with you using digital stamp, and some mixed media supplies.

On my card, I used the Love/Spring Digital Stamps from STAMPlorations. They are FREE STAMPS that you can download, use for your projects, and link up with our Linky Party! It is still open until February 8 and lots of chances for you to win the giveaway prizes.

Printed the image on mixed media paper and then colored it loosely with Gelatos and make up sponge.

I used my finger to add thin layer of gesso around the flower to mute the printed background and added some texture on it. Then I dried the page with craft heater.

Using Faber Castell Grey Brush Pen, I added the shadow around the image and blended it with my finger.

I cut out a pink cardstock using the You & Me Phrase Die Set for the sentiment.

The background panel, I embossed a light grey cardstock using wood grain embossing folder, and then I added some brown Gelato on it with make up sponge to bring up some of the grains. Then, I added some white paint splatters with brush and white acrylic paint and water.

I hope you enjoy this card today. For more inspirations, head over to STAMPlorations Blog to see the extra projects from the STAMPlorations Girls.
