Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop ~ Day 6

Friday, June 23 - Friday, June 30
Theme: Summer



Hello Fellow Caffeine Fiends,


Today is Day 6 of the Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop!!  Day 6??  Boy this week is going by fast!  Today I made a card using some of our Super Sponsors items!!  I used some of the new crinkle ribbon from Super Sponsor DL.ART  its the new bundle called Caramel Macchiato and I used the coffee cups from Super Sponsor Joy Clair Coffee Lovers stamp set.  I hope you will stop by their stores and see their wonderful products that they sell.


Here is my card:



Ingredients:

Kraft card stock
Brown ink
Pop dots

For this A2 card I started with Kraft card stock for the card base.  I took a piece of Kraft paper an
ran it through my Vagabond with the Tim Holtz Texture Fades embossing folder, I thought this looked like a whole page of coffee rings! Then I rubbed some brown ink over the embossing, inked the edges and added that to the card.  I took a piece of scrap paper and stamped the sentiment from the Hero Arts A Little stamp set with brown ink and then fussy cut it out and added it to the card.  I took the small coffee cups from the Joy Clair Coffee Lovers stamp set and stamped them with brown ink on some more of the scrap paper and then fussy cut them out and pop dotted them onto the card.  Lastly I took some of the Caramel crinkle ribbon from the DL.ART Carmael Macchiato bundle and made a bow and attached that to the card.  So what do you think?

Joy Clair Music is Life

**This is one of 2 posts I have today, if you are looking for the Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop ~ Day 5 please go here.**


Hello Blogging Friends,


Today it is my turn on the Joy Clair Blog and I have a fun card to share with you that I made using the Joy Clair Music Maker stamp set.



Here is what I made:



For this A2 card I started with a piece of turquoise paper.  I then took some white watercolor paper and stamped the different music images from the Joy Clair Music Makers stamp set onto the paper randomly.  I used my Deckle Edge Ruler to rip the paper at arbitrary angles and then I used my distress inks to color the paper.  For the top square with music notes I used Victorian Velvet distress ink and then I spritzed some water on it and let it dry.  For the music score I used Victorian Velvet, Cracked Pistachio, Tumbled Glass and Evergreen Bough distress inks, I also spritzed some water on the paper and let it dry.  For the square with the heart and music notes I used Spun Sugar distress ink and then spritzed it too.  After the pieces were all dry I startted arranging them onto the card.  I cut out the Cheery Lynn Treble Clef die with black shimmer paper and I placed it onto the card.  Since the Joy Clair Design Team is featuring Bling for the month of June, I used some Creative Memories shimmery black gem embellishments on my card.  I placed three of the small gems onto the bright pink paper and then three bigger gems in the upper left hand corner and three in the lower right hand corner.  I love this Joy Clair Music Markers stamp set!  You can make such great cards and scrapbook embellishments with it!

Here is a close up of my card:

Ingredients:

Water color paper

For this A2 card I started with Kraft card stock for the base of the card.  I used some leftover Prima paper from another project.  I took some water color paper and wet it down.  I swirled several of the new Distress Oxide inks onto my craft mat and then spritzed some water on it and ran my paper through the inks several times, dried it with my drying tool and then spritzed the paper again to get the water color effect that I wanted and then let the paper dry.  I then stamped the flowers and leaves from the Pretty Posies stamp set with Versamark and then heat embossed it with WOW White Pearl embossing powder.  Then I cut the shape out and added that to my card.  I then took some black ink and the sentiments from the Breathe stamp set and stamped the sentiment on the card.  So what do you think of my Encouragement card?
