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!!!

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!

Beautiful Day | Poppy Flower Shaped Card

Hello everyone… Happy Friday and I hope you all have a beautiful day today. I am here and wanna share a shaped card that I created with digital stamp, digital paper, and svg cutting file.

I use this new Beautiful Day Bundle Digital Stamp from Graciellie Design. This digital stamp bundle is packed with 23 high quality PNG images that you can modify as needed for any kind of projects you want to make. Those poppy flowers and clusters are so gorgeous! The sentiments are also lovely and sweet with fabulous choices of fonts. For this new release, this new bundle stamp is on SALE at her store.

I had a fun time creating this Poppy flower shaped card with this digital stamp. I open the flower PNG file on the Silhouette Studio. And then I used the Trace Tool to create the outline cutting line of the flower. After that, I used the Offset Tool to create the offset cutting line that is slightly bigger than original flower.

Next, I created 2 – 4.25″ x 5.5″ rectangles. One of them I used to weld the flower shape as the front of the card. Then, I welded both the front card and the other rectangle to crate the whole card. I cut it with my Silhouette Cameo 3.

Next, I printed and cut the flower with Silhouette Cameo 3, too. I colored the flower with ShinHan Alcohol Markers and then I added a layer of glitter with Spectrum Noir Sparkle Brush Clear. I let it sit to dry.

I cut out the word Friend, one of the words from the Coffee Lovers SVG Files using White cardstock and then I colored it with Spectrum Noir Sparkles Brush Black. I let it sit aside to dry.

When the flower and sentiment word dried, I added them on the front of the card. I used 3D foam for the flower and I used permanent adhesive glue for the word sentiment.

For the inside card, I printed one of the Rustic Wood Digital Papers on a white cardstock. I trimmed it and then added it on the inside card with Scrapbook Adhesives EZ Runner.

I printed several of the sentiments from this Beautiful Day Bundle Digital Stamp on a white cardstock. I trimmed one of them into sentiment banner and then I added it inside the card with Scrapbook Adhesives EZ Runner.

I hope you all have a beautiful day! Thank you so much for stopping by today.
