This card is very simple to make and quick. I simply added the metallic silver paint wash on a black cardstock with medium flat brush.

Once the paint dried, I stamped the cup from the Coffee With A Splash stamp set with the Unicorn Pigment Ink Pad using Mini MISTI. While the ink still wet, I sprinkle some of the Bright White Embossing Powder on it and heat set it with craft heater.

I die cut the black cardstock with Fancy Frame Dies and added it directly on the white card with E-Z Runner® Grand Adhesive.

I stamped the sentiment on a white cardstock using VersaFine Onyx Black, trimmed it into a sentiment banner with scissors, and I added it on the card with some 3D circle foam tape.

2019 Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day 1 | Bloomdala Coffee Cup To Go

Hello again everyone… Today is the day all the coffee/tea/cocoa lovers has been waiting for. The 2019 Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop has begun!

This blog hop is hosted by the Coffee Loving Cardmakers! It starts from Friday, May 3, 2019 until Friday, May 10, 2019. You all are invited to create any coffee/tea/cocoa projects with Spring or Summer theme and link up your projects with us HERE until Friday, May 10th at 11:55 pm pacific. You also can find the full list of the amazing, generous Super Sponsors there.

Here’s my card today with stamps, dies, stencils, and digital stamps from our Super Sponsor STAMPlorations, together with Hero Arts Ink Pad, and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, who are also Super Sponsors.

On both of my cards, I use the gorgeous Bloomdala Coffee Cup To Go digital stamp. Yup… STAMPlorations now has digital stamps. Check all the digital designs here.

On my first card, I printed the cup on a glossy photo paper. I added some of the alcohol inks drops, added some alcohol blending solution on it, and I use straw to blend them together. It is a fun simple way of adding colors on this cup. Once the inks dried, I fussy cup the cup with scissors.

On a black cardstock, I used Make Marks 6 ARTplorations Stencil,  Unicorn Pigment Ink Pad, and Blending Brush to add the faux stitching on the background.

I cut that black cardstock with Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies. I added both the background panel and cup on a white card with E-Z Runner® Grand Adhesive.

I cut out a white cardstock using the Coffee Fix Phrase Die and I added it on the card with permanent glue pen adhesive.

This second card is a coffee cup to go shaped card. I created it using the Silhouette Studio software. I open the cup file on the software, resized it to 5.5″ tall, and then I trace the shape to create the cutting line.

I create the card base on the software, and then I use the Weld feature to combine 2 shapes. Then, I use the Print-and-Cut feature to print the cup, then cut it my Silhouette Cameo 3. Then I cut the cup shaped card.

I colored the front cup image with Prismacolors Colored Pencils. And I added it on the card base with E-Z Runner® Grand Adhesive.

I stamped the sentiment from What’s Brewing Stamp Set on a white cardstock with VersaFine Clair Pinecone ink pad, then I cut it with Bracket Labels/Tags Nesting Dies. I also stamped the inside of the card with the same ink and other sentiment that from the same stamp set.

I added the sentiment tag on the top of the card with 3D circle foam tape and tied it up with natural burlap twine.

Here are the 2 cards that I created using the Coffee With Characters Stamp Set and Caffeinated Sentiments Stamp Set.

My first card is a shaker card. I die cut a piece of blue cardstock with Divitiny Designs Double Stitchs Ovals Dies, and then I used a piece of vellum paper for the window and for the shaker I use the fabulous Magical Expecto Patronum Glitter Confetti Mix.

I stamped the bubble tea cup, straw, lid, and heart with VersaFine Clair ink pads, fussy cut them with scissors, and then I colored them with Arteza Real Brush Pens.

I stamped the sentiments with VersaFine Clair Ink pads, too.

On my second card, I stamped the images on a white cardstock using Archival Mini Ink Pad set and then I added some London Fog FireWork Spray on it. And then I cut it with Divinity Designs Large Pennant Dies.

I wrapped around some natural twine ribbon on top of the pennant, and then I added it on the card with 3D foam tape.

I stamped the sentiment on a white cardstock, and then trimmed it into sentiment banner. I tied it up with the twine ribbon and secured it with small 3D foam tape so it stays in place.

I embellished the card with some more sequins from the same mix.

Fun Artsy Mixed Media Tags Tutorial

Hello hello hello everyone… I hope your week started well. Today I have a fun artsy mixed media tags tutorial to share with you all.

I am sharing step-by-step tutorial with picture on STAMPlorations Blog today that you can follow to create these fun, artsy looking mixed media tags using stencils, stamps, dies, gelli printing plate, acrylic paints, markers, and pigment ink pad.

For my tags, I use 8.5″ x 11″ (letter) size, 110 lbs white cardstock and the Manila Tags Nesting Dies. You can also use any heavyweight cardstock or watercolor paper for the tags.

I use all the new released 6 Make Marks Stencils to create the backgrounds with the basic gelli printing technique. This is a super easy and fun technique to do with stencils.

You can leave the tags as they are, or you can also decorate them with stamps, doodling or any embellishments you want to.

I decorate my tags with some doodles and the Life in Full Color Stamp Set and VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink pad to stamp the images on each tag, color them with acrylic paint and watercolor crayon.
