I'm starting with my fall card (I'll be sharing more cards as the week goes on!) and pulled out STAMPlorations Zen Coffee 2 Cover Plate die. I first cut the die from some matte gold card stock, then I adhered it to a dark red card base.

Next, I picked out a fall pattern paper pad and different patterns out for different areas of the die cut. For example, I used a darker pattern for the coffee beans and the coffee inside the cup. After cutting I used liquid glue to add the different pieces inside my gold one. I did leave some of the areas not filled on purpose!

Then I stamped and white embossed the Perk Up! sentiment from the After Coffee stamp set. I cut the sentiment into a rectangle and adhered it to the die cut panel. To describe this, it sounds fast and easy, but it took away to cut and then adhere all those pieces!

Thanks so much for stopping by!! Make sure you hop along and submit your own fall/winter inspired coffee card!! I'll be back in a couple days with another I made for the hop!!

I stamped the cornucopia on white card stock, then I used stitched rectangle dies to cut it and some pattern paper. This was made with Lawn Fawn stitched dies, but Art Impressions has since made their own double stitched dies, you can check them out here!

Next, I colored the image with my Spectrum Noir ColourBlend Pencils. I don't have the list of colors any more, but I used like almost every pencil! Or at least it seamed like it!! Lol!!

I stamped the sentiment Bountiful Blessings on a strip of card stock and then notched one end. Then I added the colored image to the light yellow pattern paper and then to some Kraft card stock and finally a card base. Last I added a couple wood dots.

Welcome Fall

Hello!!

I'm on the Art Impressions blog with a card featuring the new Autumn Window! It seams like once Halloween was over the world went straight to Christmas!! Figured I better share this card while it's still fall!!

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Art Impressions - Echo Park Place Celebrate Autumn


I started by stamping the image and then using one of AI's Stitched Square dies to cut it out. I used a bigger square die to cut some pattern paper that looks like brown canvas.

Next, I used my Spectrum Noir Markers to color the Window. I used BO2, BO3, BO4, CG1, CG3, DP4, DP6, IG2, IG4, LG1, LG3, OR2, OR3, PL1, PL3, RB1, RB3, RB4, YG1, YG2, YG3.

I adhered the colored square on top of the canvas pattern square. Then I added the apple pattern paper to a white cardbase. I used the Celebrate Autumn collection from Echo Park Paper Co.

From the Ephemera pack I added the Welcome Fall sentiment with foam tape. Below the sentiment I tied a double bow from twine and adhered it.

Thanks for Being You

Hello!!

I'm popping in with a card I made for PinkFresh Studio November Challenge! I missed the past couple months, I've been soooo busy! It hasn't gotten much better, but I needed to take a little break from my DT designing and playing with some unused goodies is a great way to refresh my mojo!!


Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - PinkFresh Studio - Succulents

The above is the graphic with the colors and theme! I went through my inks and picked out colors that were close. I started with the Simply Succulents stamp set, using my MISTI to do some watercolor stamping with the inks. The inks I used are listed at the end of this post.

I wanted to add a few details, so I went in with a fine black pen and added some lines using the stamp as a guide. Then I fussy cut out the succulent planter. From a matte gold card stock I used one of PinkFresh's Terrarium dies. I just adhered it on top of my succulents.

Next, I used the same inks to blend an inked background. I used Bristol card stock for the first time and wow!! it blended wonderfully!!! I added a few splatters of water and then black paint.

When that was dry I added a strip of black card stock along the bottom and then stamped the Thanks For Being You sentiment above that.

I tied some black twine at the top of the terrarium and after adhering the succulents with foam tape added a bit of glue at the top of the card for the twine, cutting off the extra when it was dry.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

One Cup at a Time

Hello!!!

I'm on the Art Impressions blog today! With the cooler weather, it means I can start sharing colder themed stamps!! If you are a coffee or tea fan then the Latte Love set is for you!!

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Art Impressions - Spectrum Noir Markers

I started my card first by added a Prima stencil to a white cardbase. Then I used a couple different inks and blended them together. I used Papertrey Ink Autumn Rose, Hawaiian Shores and Hero Arts Soft Apricot. Then I rounded the corners.

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Art Impressions - Fancy Pants - Christmas

I started by stamping the two fun elves in the set and coloring them with my Spectrum Noir Markers. For the girl elf I used blue to better match the pattern paper I used. The colors I used are AB4, BG7, CR7, CR11, CT4, IG1, IG2, RB2, RB4, TB1, TB4. When I was done coloring them, I fussy cut them both out.

With AI's stitched rounded rectangle die, I cut some snowflake paper. I added a red pattern then the snowflake pattern to a card base, rounding its corners. Then I used a banner die and cut some more pattern paper. I stamped the sentiment and add it to my card base.

Then I pulled out the matching die cuts (from Fancy Pants - Wish Season) and added trees, snowflakes and several sentiments. I layered it all together, some was added with foam tape, others directly to the card.
