Coffee Loving Cardmakers | Square Card Ideas

Hello hello hello… Happy Thrusday everyone! Today I would love to share a couple of coffee square cards with you all. Let’s grab your favorite drink and take a little break with me…

I am sharing a full detail how I created them at Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog.

I used some digital stamps and digital papers from Gracillie Design and die sets from Divinity Designs to make them.

On this first card, I used the Affogato image from the Coffee & Ice Cream Digital Bundle Set. I actually colored this image on my iPad using the Procreate App. After that, I sent it to my computer to resize and printed it on a white cardstock. I fussy cut it with micro-tip scissors.

For the second card, I cut out a piece of white cardstock using one of the Double Stitched Squares Dies and then I cut out the printed digital pattern paper with one of the Squares Dies. I added both of them on top of the kraft card base with Scrapbook Adhesives E-Z Runner Grand.

I added the sentiment banner on top of the card with 3D foam squares for extra dimension.

These coffee square cards are quick and easy to make and they will fit in a regular A2 envelopes.

Clear Scraps | Gold Maple Leaf Shaker Card

Hello hello hello everyone… Here in the United States, Autumn Season will officially be here on September 22nd. I love watching the leaves changing colors. They are beautiful in their own ways. Today, I would love to share my gold maple leaf shaker card.

On my card, I am featuring the Mini Shaker Maple Leaf and 6″ Leaves Stencil, that they are just perfect for this season! I am sharing a tutorial at Clear Scraps blog today.

I painted the maple leaf shaker chipboard with three shades of gold acrylic paints.

I leave it as it is, no sentiment so I can send it out for any occasions in this Autumn season. I hope this project gives you an idea to create for Autumn season.

Dare 2B Artzy | Hello Autumn Leaves

Hello hello hello… Happy Monday! September is here already, can’t you believe it? It means that Fall is coming near here and I am looking forward to see the green leaves turning into gorgeous colors. And my Hello Fall Leaves card today is inspired by this lovely season.

I am sharing full detail at Dare 2B Artzy Blog today. On my card today, I used the beautiful Autumn Leaves Paper, Give Thanks Stamp Set, Fall Leaves Die, and the Hello Word Die. I got them a month ago and finally got to use them this season.

I stamped those using VersaFine Onyx Black ink pad using MISTI and then I colored them using Viviva Watercolor and water brush.

Viviva Watercolor comes in a set 16 gorgeous vibrant watercolor sheets in this book. I love how small and compact this watercolor sheet book is, just perfect size for coloring at home and traveling. It just fits in my purse with the waterbrush. I will have more projects showing these gorgeous watercolor sheets in the future.

The Fall colors are my favorite for the next several months for sure.

Thank you so much for stopping by our blog today. Have a wonderful day!

Clear Scraps | How To Use Embossed Acrylic Sheet On Cards

Hello hello hello! We are at the end of August! I cannot wait for Fall Season to be here soon… Today, I would like to share with you couple technique how you can use embossed acrylic sheet on cards.

On my two cards, I used the Clear Scraps Acrylic Sheet. These are amazing and they come in 12 x 12 size which are perfect for all kind of projects that you can think of. You can cut them, emboss them, stamp on them, shape them, and more! And nn my cards today, I use the embossing technique.

I am sharing more detail about these cards at Clear Scraps blog today.

On my first card, I used this Clear Scraps YouTube Video Tutorial to create the embossed acrylic sheet base. And then, I added some alcohol inks on the embossed acrylic sheet. I also use alcohol ink blending solution and straw to move the ink around the surface.

While the alcohol inks mostly dry and the surface was a little bit tacky, I added some black and gold foil sheets on it.

I cut out a piece of white cardstock using Hello Word Die from A Jillian Vance Design, and then I added it on top of the acrylic background with the same adhesive glue.

I made a shaker card for the second. The technique I used is called embossing and frost technique. I followed the steps shown by Susan Frase in the video tutorial. I don’t have the electric sanding machine like hers, but I used a simple craft sanding block on my card.

For the frame, I cut out 2 piece of white cardstock using the scrallop rectangle dies from Craftin Desert Divas (store closed) and I added them on the embossed acrylic sheet with ScorPal double sided tape.

Then, I cut out a piece of black cardstock using the word dies from A Jillian Vance Design. And I added them on the card using permanent dries-clear adhesive glue.

I hope these two cards give you more ideas how to create with Clear Scraps Acrylic Sheet. These techniques are fun to try!

Coffee Loving Cardmakers Thursday Coffee Break | Sending A Cozy Hello

Hello hello hello coffee loving friends! Happy Thursday. I hope you all have a wonderful week so far. Here’s a cozy hello card for you…

Today, let’s take a little coffee break with me at Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog. I am sharing this coffee cozy hello card there that I created using amazing goodies from some Coffee Loving Super Sponsors!!

For the patterned paper on the background, I printed one of the patterns from the fabulous Coffee Lovers Digital Paper Pack from Graciellie Design. After that, I trimmed it into 4.25′ x 4.25″

I stained one coffee filter using Over Coffee Ink Pad from Catherine Pooler. I dabbed some of the ink on a craft mat and sprayed it with water, then I dibbed the coffee filter in it. After that, I dried it with craft heater. I cut the coffee filter into half, and then pleated them as I glued them on the bottom of the card.

Then, I added the patterned paper on top of the card with permanent adhesive runner.

On another white cardstock, I printed all the sentiments from the Coffee & Love Digital Stamp Set from Graciellie Design. Then, I cut out one of them using the Double Stitched Rectangles Dies from Divinity Designs. I modified the cutting a little bit to fit the sentiment that is not quite a square. I added the sentiment on the card using 3D foam tape for extra dimension.

And then, I embellished the card with some of the sequins from the Mocha Swirl ShakerBlends from STAMPlorations. I used dries-clear permanent adhesive glue to add the the sequins on the card.

I played along with Bev’s DTGD2020 Challenge! This is my first year playing along with this Dare To Get Dirty. To be able to join, you need to be a member of the Fan Club and to find more about this amazing club, visit this link for more details!
