My coffee card today is featuring the stamps, dies and stencil from Super Sponsor STAMPlorations.

I used the new Bloomin’ Coffee Stamp Set and You Stamp Set, Coffee Joy Stamp Set, Pierced Curly Frame/Tag Nesting Dies, and Nestled Circles ARTplorations Stencil from Super Sponsor STAMPlorations.

PLUS… Beside the prize they giveaway at Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog, STAMPlorations is giving away an extra prize pack! Head over to STAMPlorations Blog to read all about it and how you can enter. While you are there, grab the FREE Digital Stamp, too.

I blended the Distress Ink with the Nestled Circles ARTplorations Stencil on a white cardstock, then spray some water, and then I dabbed it off with paper towel. I dried the cardstock with craft heater and cut it using the Pierced Curly Frame/Tag Nesting Dies. I cut out a piece of kraft cardstock with the larger size of the die.

I stacked both stenciled panel and the kraft mat together using the E-Z Runner Permanent Strips from the Super Sponsor Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

Next, I used VersaMark ink pad to stamp the flower mug and word “you” from the Bloomin’ Coffee Stamp Set, and the label from the Coffee Joy Stamp Set on a piece of watercolor paper using VersaMark ink pad. I used MISTI stamping tool to stamp them all together.

I sprinkled them with some of the Fairy Tale Glitter Embossing Powder from Super Sponsor WOW! Embossing Powder. Then, I heat set the embossing powder with my craft heater. I fussy cut them with scissors.

I colored the flower mug image with watercolor pencils and waterbrush. Then quickly dried it with craft heater. I added it on the card with 3D foam tape from Super Sponsor Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

I added the word “you” on the card with permanent liquid glue. I stamped the other sentiment from the Bloomin’ Coffee Stamp Set inside banner with Nocturne VersaFine Clair ink pad. I added the banner on the card with 3D foam tape from Super Sponsor Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

I hope you like this project today. And now…it is your turn to make something pretty while drinking your favorite drink!

Spring/Summer Coffee Lover Hop Day 1

Hello hello hello everyone! Happy Friday and it is the kick off day for the 2020 Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!!!

If you are new to this Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, head over to the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog to read all about it and to see the full list of the generous Super Sponsors.

This hop and link up party starts today, Friday, May 22, 2020 through Friday, May 29, 2020. We don’t have any specific theme but your projects still do need to have a caffeinated element [coffee, tea, cocoa, hot apple cider].

The inlinkz link up will be close on Friday, May 29th at 11:55 pm Pacific (Saturday, May 30 th at 2:55 AM Easter Time).

On my card for this first day, I use the Coffee and Flowers from Super Sponsor Graciellie Design. She has a wonderful collection of Coffee/Tea themed digital stamps and papers.

I printed the image and sentiment on a Neenah Solar 80 lbs white cardstock using Brother Laser Printer and the before I colored it, I dried the printer ink using craft heater.

One of my favorite ways working with digital stamps is the Silhouette Print-and-Cut Feature. I can print and cut a bunch of image in a jiffy, no tears becuase of fussy cutting… hahahaha…

I colored the image using Arteza Real Brushes and waterbrush. I dried it with craft heater after that.

I trimmed the sentiment into a sentiment banner with paper trimmer and scissors.

For the background, I used the Distressed Line DecoFoil Clear Toner Sheet and Lapis Watercolor DecoFoil Transfer Sheet from the Super Sponsor Therm O Web.

I trimmed the clear toner sheet into 4.25″ x 5.5″ and I trimmed the foil transfer sheet slightly bigger that the toner sheet. I put them inside the carrier paper that came with the clear toner package, and then I run them through my laminator that I got from Amazon.

I trimmed the clear toner into 4″ x 5.25″ and I added it on top of a white card using E-Z Runner Permanent Strips from the Super Sponsor Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. I added the portion of the runner permanent strips on the back of the solid image to hide the glue.

I added the coffee mug and sentiment on top of the card with the same adhesive runner and 3D foam tape. I embellished the card with some of the pearl gems from my stash.

Stop And Smell The Flowers And The Coffee

Hello everyone… Today, I made a Spring mixed media coffee card. A little inspiration to share with you for upcoming Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Hop.

I share this card at Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog today where you can read more about this card.

I actually colored the digital image on my iPad Pro using Procreate App. After that, I saved the image in PNG format. I opened the image with photo editing software (you also can use any word processing software), then I resized it and then printed it with inkjet printer on a white cardstock.

On my mixed media card, I used products from several Super Sponsors:

I hope this card sparks an inspiration for this Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Hop!!! I hope to see you all tomorrow!

Stay Home and Drink Coffee

Hello everyone… I hope you all are safe and healthy. I stay home and drink coffee to survive this… Hahahahaha…

It has been 70 days we are in the “stay home” stage!!! And now that school is done and Summer Break has started… But I do love love love having my kids at home with me!

I played with the new Coffee Queen digital stamp from Graciellie Design. This is a fun digital stamp set to use on projects.

I also use couple patterned paper from the Coffee Lovers digital paper pack for the background and oval mat. I trimmed the background paper to fit on the white card. And then for the oval mat, I cut out the stripe patterned paper with Divinity Designs – Ovals Stitched Rows Dies.

I opened files, resized and added sentiment on the mug using Pixelmator Pro (photo edit software). You also can use Word or Pages to work with digital stamps.

I printed the image on a white cardstock using Brother Laser Printer in black and white. After that, I added some DecoFoil foil sheets (black and green) on the image and run it through the laminating machine.

I colored the image with watercolor pencils, waterbrush, and Spectrum Noir Sparkle brush. I dried the watercolor with craft heater and after that I fussy cut the image with scissors. I added it on the oval background mat with 3D foam tape. I added it on the card with permanent adhesive.

I added the extra silver dots on the card using DecoFoil Glue Pen and DecoFoil Silver foil sheet.

Here’s a quick close up how the foil sheets and glitter brush give extra sparkle on the card:

Before you go… This coming Friday, May 22 is the kicking off the 2020 Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Hop hosted by Coffee Loving Cardmakers. I hope you all plan to join this amazing hop and link party. It will be fun, full of amazing prizes from the generous Super Sponsor!!!
