Freshly Brewed Coffee, Liquid For Soul

Freshly brewed coffee is totally liquid for soul… Don’t you agree? Today, I wanna share a fun CAS coffee card with you all.

I am up at Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog today and sharing this how I made this CAS coffee card. On my CAS card, I used the Spring Coffee Cup Mega Digital Stamp Set from Graciellie Design. At her digital store, she has quite a collection of the coffee/tea/cocoa digital stamp sets.

Working with digital stamps, I like to use the Silhouette Studio software and also Procreate Pro on my MacBook. But you can use any image processing software and any Word Document software will work with any digital images. I colored the printed cup with Altenew Artist Alcohol Markers. After coloring process, I fussy cut the cup with scissors.

I used stamping with acrylic block and dye inks technique to create that watercolor background. I dabbed some of the Catherine Pooler Dye Inks on an acrylic block and lightly sprayed it with pearl silver spray to give a little bit sparkle on the background. I stamped the watercolor with the block on a white cardstock. I put another acrylic block on top of it and let the watercolor ink dried underneath the other block. It was fun to watch the watercolor ink blending together underneath the acrylic block and form the rainbow colors.

After I removed the acrylic blocks, I dried watercolor paint with craft heater gun just to make sure it dried well. And then, I cut the background panel with Dare 2B Artzy Rectangles Framelits Dies. I added the cut out frame on the card with 3D foam tape and using permanent  adhesive runner to add the middle mat.

I added the coffee cup in the middle of the mat with 3D foam tape.

Let’s get some freshly brewed coffee for our souls today… Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. Have fabulous caffeinated day!!!

Dare 2B Artzy | Anything Is Popsicle

Hello artzy friends! March is here. Anything is popsicle, right? Today, I wanna share this pun fun fold card.

This card is easy to make and I share the details at Dare 2B Artzy blog today. I use the new Raccoon Party Stamp set and matching die set, also the new Ice Cream Social Papers Variety Pack.

I used Neenah white cardstock 80 lbs for the pop up card base. It is perfect size for a card base. I cut the cardstock using the cardstock with Wavy Square Fun Fold Die. I cut the pattern papers for the background mats using paper trimmer and added on the card base with permanent adhesive runner. I cut one of the patterned paper with Wavy Squares Framelit Die and I added on the front card with 3D adhesive.

For the sentiment, I stamped it on a white cardstock with the black ink pad, and then I cut it with the label die from Wavy Slimline Framelit Dies. I added it in the inside card with 3D foam tape. This will make the sentiment pop up and hold the front panel up.

I stamped the raccoon with popsicle image with VersaFine Clair Nocture on a white cardstock, dried the ink, and then color it with Arteza EverBlend markers. After that, I added some glittler on it with Wink Of Stella clear glitter brush. I dried the glitter with craft heater. 

After I cut the raccoon image with the matching die, I added it on top of the wavy square mat with permanent adhesive runner.

This card is fold flat enough and can be sent using regular mail postal stamp, too. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. Have a wonderful day!

I stamped and heat-embossed the flower on a white cardstock, and then fussy cut it. I left it as is, no coloring.

I added the clear sticker sentiment on the card and then I added the flower cluster on the card with 3D foam tape.

Fun Watercoloring On Cards and Bible Journaling Page

Hello crafty friends… Today with couple ideas how to create fun watercolored backgrounds on cards and Bible Journaling page.

First project, I used the Wish Big stamp se for these clean-and-simple cards. The background embossing resist with smooshing technique. It very simple and quick way to create watercolored background  with these markers.

And the second project is this Psalms 122 Bible Journaling. This time I used the plastic bag for creating the watercolored background.

I stamped the church image from the Gather Together stamp set on a watercolor cardstock with VersaFine Pinecone, dried it with craft heater, and then I colored it with the Leisure Arts Double Ended Markers and waterbrush. And then I wrote my journaling using the fine pen from the Leisure Arts Hand Letter Set. This pen won’t bleed through the page and writes smoothly on watercolored background.

I am sharing full details and steps how to create these projects at Joy Clair Blog.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today!
