Coffee & Friends <3

Hello everyone! Hope you are all doing well!

For today, I would like to share a simple and cute card I made using the Coffee Town stamp set from the Sweet Stamp Shop. I had this set for a while and I thought I’d give it a try! I really like how it turned out!

Here is the card!

 

CoffeHouse_July_FE1

 

Supplies used:

 

I stamped the coffee house image on white cardstock in Caviar Hybrid ink and colored with various Copic Markers. So sorry I don’t have the list of the markers I used. The post-it note that had the list is nowhere to be found. 😦

When I was done with the coloring, I fussy cut the image and went around the edge with the Memento Tuxedo Marker. Next, I masked off top portion of the card base I made out of Neenah Desert Storm cardstock and ink blended couple of Distress inks. (Vintage Photo and the Ground Espresso) Then, I stamped the sentiment from Altenew’s Coffee Love stamp set on the bottom of the card in Noir Dye ink. I added a strip of Adhesive Glitter Gold paper and adhered the coffee house image on the card. I finished the card by adding Dulce Sequins and the Burnt Caramel Sequins from The Ton.

Don’t you think this card turned out so cute? 🙂 I hope you enjoyed it!

That’s all from me today! Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Happy Crafting!

I absolutely love this month’s beautiful and happy board, it was a breeze and so fun to create this month’s project! I decided to create a card that features macarons in a filed of flowers. With that sketch on my mind, I chose following products:

Ton_July2017_FE2

*Backdrop Board used: Natural Wood

I started the card by stamping the Sweet MacaronsAnemone Wishes, and Anemone Cluster images on a Bristol Smooth cardstock in Versamark. I heat embossed all the images with the Rose Gold Embossing Powder and colored them with Stabilo 68 pens. I was first introduced to these water-based pens by a dear friend of mine, and I immediately fell in love with the vibrancy as well as how easy to use them. I laid the colors towards the center and the creases of the images where I want the shadows to be, and blended out with the Aquash water brushes. When the images were good and dry, I went ahead and cut them out with the coordinating dies.

Ton_July2017Challenge_CE1

The background panel is from my stash I created the other day with Gansai Tambi and Mijello Mission Gold watercolors. I die cut the panel with the largest die from the (Small) Double Stitched Rectangle Dies. Flushed to the bottom center, I adhered it an a top folding white A2 card base I made out of Neenah 110lb cardstock. Then I adhered rest of the images, some popped up with the foam tape.

The sentiment is borrowed from the Summer Blooms stamp set, stamped on vellum in our Noir Dye ink. When the ink was dry, I cut it down to a thin banner and adhered it on the card. I added some (mix) Dew Drops, Fairy Pink Sparkling Clear Sequins, and My Tutu Sequins. And that completes the card!

That’s all from me today! Hope you enjoyed today’s project and hope you’d have a ton of fun with this month’s challenge!

Peony Terrace – watercolor stamping

Hello, everyone! Hope you are having a fabulous weekend! 🙂 I’m going out of town tomorrow so it’s crazy around here, busy packing and taking care of last minute things! However, I decided to write a quick blog post to share a birthday card I created for my dear friend!

For this card, I used the Peony Terrace Background Cling stamp, one of The Ton’s Summer Release 2017 collection! I love The Ton’s cling stamps, because they make it so easy to create beautiful cards! No contemplation on how to arrange the floral images, it’s all done for you already! Let me show you what I created with this beautiful image!

Ton_Meg_WCBG_FE1.jpg

 

Supplies used:

 

This card was so fun and easy to make! First, I positioned the Peony Terrace Cling Background stamp on my MISTI. Then, I scribbled some Zig markers, spritzed some water and stamped onto a watercolor paper (I used Canson XL). I let it dry completely, trimmed it down a bit on the side, and adhered it on a black A2 card base. By the way, I’ve been using the 110lb. black cardstock for my card bases, and it’s been working fabulous!

The sentiment is borrowed from The Ton’s new Beer set. I stamped on a black cardstock and heat embossed in white. I cut it down to a thin banner and popped it up on the card with some 3M foam tape. I added some Dew Drops and Glass Slippers Sequins from The Ton, and my card was done!
