And…Here’s my project for this blog hop

On my card I used the Layered Butterflies stamp set to create that background and the sentiment is from the Trendy Butterflies 2 stamp set.

I stamped the layered butterflies images on a black cardstock with chalk ink pads and then added some mixed media art spray splatters on it. I dried the whole background with craft heater.

I trimmed the background panel bit smaller than the card size and then I used distresser tool to distress the edges. I added it on the card with fun foam and permanent glue.

I stamped the sentiment on a white cardstock and trimmed it into a sentiment label and I added it on the card with thin 3D foam tape.

That’s my card for today. Pretty simple and easy to make, right? I hope you all have fun blog hopping and creating projects for the link up party. And.. when you use any STAMPlorations products, you also can link up your project at the Never-ending Anything Goes Challenge.

2021 Spring-Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop | Coffee Feels Good Mixed Media Tags

Hello hello everyone! Hope you all are doing good. Today, I have another coffee themed project to share with you. I am excited to share these Coffee Feel Good mixed media tags at STAMPlorations Blog featuring the Coffee Feel Good Clear Stickers for their Sticker Monday post.

I also used the Stitched Tags Nesting DiesBlossoming Mini ARTplorations Stencil, and Coffee Background ATC Ephemera. If you are a coffee lover like me, you might want to grab this Coffee Spring/Summer Kit now! Beside the tags, you can get the rest products included in this kit, and more for great deal!

Here’s how I created these tags. First, I cut out a piece of 140 lbs watercolor paper using one of the Stitched Tags Nesting Dies  to make these three base tags. And, I applied thin layer of white gesso on those tag surfaces and let it dried. 

I taped the Blossoming Mini ARTplorations Stencil on top of the tag. I mixed some gesso with acrylic paints and added on the tag with pallet knife. I removed the tag under the stencil, and then add the other tag on it. I used different colors of acrylic paints for each tag. I set them aside to dry.

When the gesso and paint dried, I added some colors on the edges of each tags using Gelatos. I used my finger to blended the gelatos on the tag and then I added some splatters of paints on the tags. I dried the tags with craft heater.

I used three stickers from the Coffee Feel Good Clear Stickers. I added each sticker on a white cardstock and trimmed it around the sticker, and then using 3D foam tape I added each of them on top of three patterns from the Coffee Background ATC Ephemera. I added each cards on top of each tag with strong permanent adhesive tape.

STAMPlorations is also a Super Sponsor for the 2021 Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Hop. This hop is hosted by our amazing Coffee Loving Cardmakers. The theme for blog hop and link up party is anything goes with coffee/tea/cocoa and Spring. This hop starts from Friday, March 19th through Friday, March 26th.
