I LOVE this new Bloomfully Faith Stamp Set. It is not only the flower bouquet is so beautiful, but also the sentiments is very up-lifting. Especially for me, these days, living by faith is speaking louder into my life and family. We are walking through day by day with faith and trusting the LORD for His divine provision in our lives.

I cut out a piece of cardstock with the cover plate die and I added it on the white card base with permanent adhesive runner.

I stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Clair ink pads.

I stamped the rose image with very light dye ink and then I used Viviva Watercolor paints to color it. I dried the image with craft heater and then I fussy fussy cut it with scissors. I added it on the card with 3D foam tape.

Then I embellished the card with some of the sequins using dries-clear permanent adhesive glue. And I added some gold paint splatters on the card.

Dare 2B Artzy October Challenge | Autumn Greetings Slimline Card

Hello hello hello everyone… Sending you all an Autumn greetings all the way from Ohio… Fall is in the air for sure becuase the leaves are changing colors and the weather is cooler.

There is a new challenge at Dare 2B Artzy blog today… You can guess the theme of this month. Yes… it is Fall theme!

I tried a new technique to me to create this slimline card. It is called Floating Die Cut. Many crafters used frame die to cut out a frame (like in this video) but I decided to leave it as is to get the full floating leaves background. I love how it turned out becuase it looks like Batik background.

To create that background, I cut out many leaves and acorns from this gorgeous Autumn Leaves Paper (it is also one of the patterned papers from the Harvest Collection Variety Pack) using the Fall Leaves Die.

The sentiment is from the Foxy Greetings stamp set that I stamped it with Eucalyptus Catherine Pooler Ink Pad on a white cardstock using Mini MISTI. And then I cut it into a sentiment banner using on of the label die from the Wavy Slimline Framelit Dies.

I added some iridescent sequins randomly in between the leaves for extra sparkly.

I hope you all can join the D2BA October Challenge. You can use any products on your NEW project, but when you use any D2BA products you will get second entry! You will have a chance to win a $15 Gift Certificate when you link up your project (max 3 projects, direct link to your blog post or project gallery, not the general link).

STAMPlorations October Stencil Challenge | Thankful Coffee Card

Hello everyone… October is here!!! It is a new month and we have a new Stencil Challenge for you all.

STAMPlorations Stencil Challenge is always anything goes challenge which you can make any type of projects as long as you use stencils on it.

On my card today, I used the Brick Wall ARTplorations Stencil, Coffee Joy Stamp Set, Thankful Word Die.

I used Distress Oxide ink with the Brick Wall Stencil for the background. I added the inj with blending brush and the after that, I sprayed it lightly with water. I dabbed off the water with paper towel.

I dried the finished background panel with craft heater and trimmed it slightly smaller than the A2 card. I added it on the card with E-Z Runner Grand adhesive.

I stamped the floral cup with VersaMark ink on a watercolor paper and sprinkled it with some of the WOW! Fairy Tale Embossing Powder. After I tapped off the extra embossing powder, I heat it up with craft heater.

I colored the embossed image with Viviva Watercolor and water brush. This is one of my favorite watercolor paint! So vibrant and gorgeous colors.

I dried the watercolor paint with craft heater. And then, I fussy cut it with scissors. I added it on the card with permanent adhesive.

I cut out a piece of burlap cardstock using the word die. This is very thick cardstock so I had to run it through my die cutting machine several times. I added the burlap word on the card with permanent adhesive.

Final step, I added some white paint splatters on the card.

STAMPlorations is one of the Super Sponsors for the Coffee Loving Cardmakers – National Coffee Week Hop. Check out and come hopping along this week for amazing coffee inspiration and prizes!!!

It is another card I made for the National Coffee Week. On this card, I used the Brick Wall ARTplorations Stencil on the background, Zen Coffee Cup Layering Dies, and Just Caffeinate Clear Stickers. On those zen cups I added some DecoFoil Gold Foil Sheet with DecoFoil Foiling Glue Pen.

Happy National Coffee Day

HAPPY NATIONAL COFFEE DAY to all the coffee lovers out there!!! Today, I join the Coffee Loving Cardmakers and Papercarfters community kicking off our ALL WEEK LONG celebration.

The National Coffee Day Blog Hop starts at Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog where you can read the detail about the blog hop, how you enter to win the prizes from the generous and amazing SUPER SPONSORS!!! Make sure you read the post carefully.

For this first day of the blog hop, I made a slimline coffee card using the Perfect Blend stamp set, coordinating Coffee Cup Die, Wavy Slimline Framelit Dies, Square Framelit Dies, and Fall Harvest Paper Collection Variety Pack.

I cut out a piece of Neenah white cardstock to make the slimeline card base. Then I cut the leaves pattern paper with the Wavy Slimline Framelit Dies. I also cut out a piece of white cardstock with one of the slimline framelit dies.

I added each cut out background layers on the card with E-Z Runner Grand Permanent from Scrapbook Adhesive by 3L who is also a super sponsor.

I had fun creating this coffee cup with paper piecing technique. I stamped the images on Neenah white cardstock, and 2 pattern papers with VersaFine Clair Nocturne.

I cut out the cup and foam with the matching die, and then I fussy cut the pattern papers with micro-tip scissors. I added each piece using the E-Z Runner Grand Permanent. And then I added it on the card with the same adhesive runner.

I stamped the sentiment on a white cardstock with VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink pad and then cut it out with the Square Frameline Dies. I added it below the cup with E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Adhesive.

I stamped the coffee bean with VersaFine Clair Pinecone ink pad and cut out the coordinating die. I wanted to give them some shine and sort of look like embellishment enamels, so I inked each of the beans with VersaMark ink and sprinkled with some extra fine clear embossing powder. I held the bean down with twizzers when I heated it with craft heater. I added each coffee bean on the card with Scrapbook Adhesive by 3L Dots Mini.
