Better Together Forever

Hello everyone… I hope you all are having a good week so far. Today, I have simple, black and white card to share with you all.

Earlier this month, Gracie has announced new digital stamp sets at her store. On this card, I used one of them called Beautiful Destinations. This digital stamp set is also available in rubber stamp which you can grab the Difficult Roads Stamp Set at Unity Stamp Company.

I also use the Magnolia Dreams SVG Files for the background that I cut a black cardstock using the background file with Silhouette Cameo 3. I added it on a white card with liquid adhesive glue.

I opened the flower in the jar image with Silhouette Studio software, resized it, traced it and then created cutting line. I made couple duplicates and then printed them in black and white with laser printer.

After printing and then cutting the jar with Silhouette Cameo 3 and I added a piece of DecoFoil Silver Shattered Glass Foil Sheet on one of them, put in the parchement paper pocket, and run it through the laminator.

I removed the foil paper and woalah! Look at the gorgeous sparkle and shine on the jar image. I leave it as is, to color. I added it on the card with liquid adhesive glue.

I printed some of the sentiments in black and white with printer, trimmed them into sentiment labels, and added one of them on the card with liquid adhesive glue. I embellished the card with some of the clear sequins.

I hope you like this card today. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Have a wonderful day!

Graciellie Design Favorite Ever Blog Hop & Giveaway

Hello hello hello everyone! Happy Monday… Let’s start this week with new hope, thanksgiving, and positive thoughts. And… Today I have several cards to share with you with hope they will make you smile.

These cards I created using some of my favorites digital stamps, digital SVG cutting files, and digital papers from Gracillie Design. Gracie and her design team are also sharing their projects. Check the blog hop details and list at Gracie’s blog today. Find out how you can enter the giveaway at the bottom of this post.

My first card, I used one of the beautiful Magnolia Dreams digital papers pack for the background. I printed it on a 4×6 photo paper, trimmed it into 4″x5.25″, and added it on top of a A4 white card with E-Z Runner Grand.

I cut out couple white cardstock with one of the Craftin Desert Divas – Inside Scalloped Rectangles Dies, then I stacked them together with permanent adhesive glue. I added the vellum paper on it with the permanent adhesive glue and then I added on the card with the same adhesive. I held it down with large acrylic stamping block for couple minutes to make sure it dried well.

I printed the 4 flower mug images from the Fresh Start Digital Stamp Set on a watercolor paper with laser printer. And then I cut them with my Silhouette Cameo 3 using PixScan Mat and their software for scan and cut.

I colored the flowers with Leisure Arts Double Ended Markers and waterbrush. I dried it with craft heater.

And then, carefully I dabbed some of the DecoFoil Liquid Adhesive using make up sponge around the mug, let it dried, and then I added the DecoFoil Silver Shattered Glass Foil Sheet on the cup and gently rubbed it to transfer the foil on the mug. I added it on the vellumed frame with 3D foam tape.

For the sentiment, I cut one of the DecoFoil Toner Sheets using my Silhouette Cameo 3 with the phrase from the Shine On SVG File. After that, I added the DecoFoil Turquoise Transfer Sheets and run it through the laminator. I distressed it a little bit with craft sanding block and I added it on the cup with DecoFoil Liquid Adhesive and some 3D foam tape, too.

On the second card, I used the Magnolia Dreams SVG Files for the background. I cut a piece of black cardstock with my Silhouette Cameo 3 using the background file and border file. I added the background on a white card with DecoFoil Liquid Adhesive.

Using the same technique, I print-and-cut the flower from the Life Happens Digital Stamp Set using Silhouette Cameo 3 and watercolor paper. I colored the flower with Leisure Arts Double Ended Markers and waterbrush. I dried it with craft heater and then I added it on the card with DecoFoil Liquid Adhesive. I added some white paint splatters on the card with acrylic spray paint and fan brush.

I also printed the sentiment on a white cardstock and I trimmed it into a sentiment label.

For the foiled sentiment, I cut Shine On SVG Files with the DecoFoil Toner Sheets and my Silhouette Cameo 3, this one I added the DecoFoil Silver Shattered Glass Foil Sheet and run it through laminator.

I added both of the sentiment word and label on the card with 3D foam tape and then embellished the card with some clear gems.

For this third CAS card, it is a pretty quick and easy to make. I used the border die cut that I cut before. It is from the Magnolia Dreams SVG Files. I added it on the top folded card with DecoFoil Liquid Adhesive. I added some white splatters using white acrylic spray paint and fan brush.

For the sentiment, it is one of the phrase from the Have Faith SVG Files. I used DecoFoil Toner Sheets and DecoFoil Turquoise Transfer Sheets. I used the same technique I did the the previous word die cuts using my Silhouette Cameo 3 dan laminator. I embellished this card with some of the natural twine ribbon.

Caffein Fueled Paper Play | Odd To Craftin Desert Divas

Hello everyone… Today, I join my friend, Lisa, at her Caffein Fueled Paper Play post at Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog.

She is featuring one of the Super Sponsors, Craftin Desert Divas. Last month, the owner of Craftin Desert Divas announced their store closing. They have been great sponsor for our coffee loving community!

On both of my cards today I used their coffee themed digital stamp sets and also die sets. Their digital stamps come in black-and-white and pre-colored images and sentiments.

I imported the images to my Silhouette Studio software, turned on the print-and-cut feature, , resized the images, printed them on a white cardstock, and them cut with my Silhouette Cameo 3. Pretty easy and quick process, also I don’t have to fussy cut them.

I also used both of their rectangular and circle dies on each card.

For the sentiment, I simply printed them on white cardstock and then I trimmed them into sentiment strips.

It is a fun and quick way of creating cards with digital stamps. I hope you like them.

For more inspirations, head over to Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog.

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

Joy Clair 5th Anniversary and New Release Blog Hop

Welcome to the Joy Clair 5th Anniversary and New Release Blog Hop! We are so thankful you are here to join us celebrating this special birthday.

This blog hop, is not only Joy Clair design teams but also there are amazing guest designers sharing their projects showcasing Joy Clair clear stamps. You should arrive from Cornelia’s blog.

On my first project I use the new Everyday Collection: Crystal Background Stamp and You’re A Gem stamp set to create these CAS cards.

For extra blings to the gems and crystal, I used glitter cardstock for the background and I use glitter embossing powder to heat embossed the images.

I use resist-watercolor technique to create that crystal frame after that, I fussy cut them with scissors.

I stamped the sentiments in the middle of the crystal frames with VersaFine Clair ink pad.

These cards are super easy to make yet glittery and shiny.

For the second project, I created an art journal on my Traveler’s Notebook using the new Color By Faith collection: Shadow of The Almighty.

I started with creating the beach scene with white gesso and Gelatos.

I did not use any special technique. It is simply cover the pages with white gesso using flat brush and dry it.

After that, I scribble the Gelatos on the page and blended them with my finger. I used baby wipes to remove some of the blue color and the patterned left on the page turned into clouds.

I sprayed the page with Workable Fixative spray so the Gelatos won’t smeared or change.

After the background was done, I started to stamp the images on the page using VersaFine Clair ink pads. I dried it with craft heater. Colored the chair and umbrella with Dina Wakley Media Scribble Sticks.

I stamped the word “Psalms” with Lindsey Script Alpha stamp set and wrote the verse number with Tombow PITT Artist Pen.
