Hello every one… I am back again with one more coffee card for the Spring 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop 😀

The blog hop and link up party is at Coffee Loving Cardmakers where you all can share your newly created Spring coffee/tea/cocoa themed projects. And… there are 60+ SUPER SPONSORS who are generously giving away prizes, one of them is Joy Clair. They are offering a $25 dollars Gift Certificate for this edition to shop with us at Joy Clair Store! Be sure to join in on the fun and link up your coffee loving projects to play along.


Who wants a chance to win a SECOND $25 gift card to the Joy Clair store? All you have to do is comment on this blog and all the Joy Clair design team members’ blog. The winner will be announced on the Joy Clair blog at the end of the month!

Here’s my card that I created with My Cup Runneth Over stamp set.

Spring CLC Blog Hop - Joy Clair

First, I stamped the cups image on a piece of watercolor paper with Versafine Onyx Black ink pad using my MISTI. I did it twice to get a crisp stamped image. Then I colored it with ADORNit Watercolor Pencils and watercolor brush. I picked up the pigment directly from the pencils with the waterbrush.

Then I fussy cut it with micro-tip scissors. If you have an electronic die cut, you can cut out the shape and then stamp. Joy Clair will give the svg cutting file for every stamp set you buy from their collection. How cool is that? 🙂

I stamped the sentiment with MISTI also did it twice on the grey cardstock. Background and pink patterned papers I used are retired double-sided papers from Close To My Heart.

I embellished my card with some of the doodled flowers from Bandana Bits stamp set. I stamped them on a white cardstock and watercolor them also with the same colors I used on the cups to match. Then I fussy cut them and added on the card with some black gems on it.
