Coffee Loving – The Cat’s Pajamas Collaboration | Sneak Peek Day 3

Hello everyone! Today, I am joining the Coffee Loving Cardmakers and The Cat’s Pajamas Collaboration Hop!

Every day at The Cat’s Pajamas Blog they reveal the sneak peeks of each new release. And today on Day 3 Sneak Peek, you can get Make Tea along with the FREE Cutting Files for this set. The entire release will be available on January 28.

Coffee Loving Cardmakers’ design team share their projects featuring this stamp set. You will love what they have created! The full list of blog hops are at the end of this post.

When I saw that stamp set, I started thinking of Spring! There are adorable images on this stamp set. I guarantee that you also will love love love this set! And, you will receive a free cutting file for this stamp set.

Here are two CAS, Tea-Spring themed cards to share with you today.

First of all, I cut out all the images using the free cutting file they gave me. I open the cutting files with my Silhouette Studio software and cut them with heavyweight white cardstock.

I put the negative cut out on my MISTI, and then put the stamps inside the negative cut out and picked them up with the MISTI lid. This way, I can stamp the images directly in place on the cut outs. I stamped all the images with VersaFine Onyx Black ink pad.

I colored all the images with ADORNit Watercolor Pencils and Spectrum Noir Sparkle Clear Brush.

On the shaker card, I used one of the negative die cuts I had in my stash as the shaker window frame and for the shaker filler I used giant iridescent glitter. I added the shaker frame and image on the card with 3D foam tape and I stamped the sentiment right under the shaker window.

And for this second card, I simply stamped the sentiment on a pink cardstock with Catherine Pooler’s Ink Pad and cut it with on of CP dies. I added both sentiment label and image on the card with 3D foam tape.

I used Spring patterned papers I had in my stash on both of the card backgrounds.

My card I created using one of the gorgeous Free Digital Stamps from STAMPlorations. They are available for you to download here, limited time!

I printed the digital stamp on a white cardstock with inkjet printer. I printed it the night before so the ink will dry completely. Or you can also print it and dry the ink with craft heater before you color it to avoid smearing.

I colored the printed image with Metallic and Glitter Gel Pens. It is so fun using these gel pens. I tried blending two colors with gel pens and they worked! The trick is the colors need to blend right away while they are still wet.

I colored the letters with Black ShinHan Alcohol Marker and then I used Ocean Mist Copic Marker to add light shadow all around the flower bouquet.

I stamped the butterflies from Brave One Stamp Set with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink Pad on a white cardstock with Mini MISTI. I colored them with gel pens also. After that I fussy cut them with scissors.

And… for extra glitter… I used Spectrum Noir Sparkles Clear Brush on all the images. Can you see all that glitter shines???

I added a heart patterned paper on an A2 White Card base and then I added the finished colord digital image right on top of the card. And the I added those butterflies with micro-glue dots for extra dimension.

I hope this card sparks some idea for you today. Before you go… check out the Special Sale Event at STAMPlorations Store!!!

Clear Scraps | DIY Love Chipboard Wreath

Hello everyone… It’s time to change the decoration from Winter theme to Love theme becuase the Valentine’s Day is less than a month from today.

I am sharing this project on the Clear Scraps Blog today with all the details how to make it.

On this Love Wreath, I use the new Clear Scraps – Love Large Chipboard Embellishment. For the wreath base, I used a paper mache wreath base that I wrapped it with burlap ribbon. I used glue gun to secure the ribbon on the wreath base.

I used scrapbook paper to dress up the chipboard letters. And I used the Beacon Zip Dry Glue to add the scrapbook paper on the letters. I used craft sanding block to distress the edges of the chipboard letters. And I had some of these pompom ribbons and paper flowers in my stash to use on the wreath, too.

There are LOTS of new amazing products on the Clear Scraps Store that are released this month. I promise you will LOVE them!

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

Stencil Challenge | Winter Birthday Wishes

Hello everyone! We are about half way through January and I still don’t want to put down our Christmas tree but we really have to… LOL… LOL… LOL! Today, I am here not talking about Christmas tree but I wanna share a winter birthday card.

I created the background on my card using the Flowers 2 ARTplorations Stencil. I taped the stencil on top of a Rinea – Sapphire/Gold Foil Paper. And then using the blending brush, I added the Rinea – Ghost Ink on it.

I let the ink to dry for about a minute and then I wiped it off with Wet Ones wipe. You also can use baby wipes or alcohol swap.

I trimmed the foil paper into 4” x 5 1/2” and then added it on top of an A2 white card base with Scrapbook Adhesive EZ Gran Runner.

I love how those flowers look on the foil paper! And I keep this card as clean and simple by simply adding the sentiment on it.

I cut out a heavyweight white cardstock using the Birthday Wishes Phrase Die and I added on the card with 3D foam tape.

That’s my clean-and-simple Winter Birthday Wishes Card for today. And a reminder that you still have time to play along with the January Stencil Challenge. Don’t forget to use any stencils you have on your project to be eligible to enter the giveaway. You can create any type of projects!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and have a womderful day!
