I started by printing off the flowers, leaves and sentiments, using Word to resize everything. Then I used my Spectrum Noir Markers to color the images. Next, I fussy cut out the flowers and leaves.

For the sentiment I trimmed it into a rectangle. Then if found a cool dark pattern paper and added it to a white card base.

Then I went about arranging the flowers, leaves and sentiment. When I was happy with the placment I used Press N Seal to keep the layout while I added foam tape to the back. The Press N Seal is an awesome trick I learned from Jennifer Mcguire, check out the link for a video on how to use it!!

I used liquid adhesive to help adhere the layers (the Press N Seal holds it together nicely!) then added the foam tape so it would be popped up on the card. Last, I added a few gem stones to add some sparkle to the card!

Thanks for stopping!!

I started by adding many of the small lollipops to a Word document, making them small. I arranged them randomly. I printed that out the background I made, along with the cake image and sentiment.

Hello!!

I'm stopping by today with a card made with Graciellie Designs! A new digital stamp set Color My World is awesome!! Fabulous sentiments and a lovely paint brush!! Perfect for us crafty folk!! :)
Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Graciellie Designs - Spectrum Noir Markers
I copied the paint brush and one sentiment in Word. The paint brush went above the sentiment, I knew it would mostly off my card. Once it was printed I colored the paint brush and the rainbow with my Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend markers.

Then I trimmed the image so the panel was a little short on the sides. I added gray cardstock to a white card base and then the colored panel. Last, I added a few sparkly gem stones!

Hello!!

Today I'm sharing a second card featuring stamps from a new stamp company, Miss Ink Stamps! Today is their grand opening and they have some awesome stamps!! My card features the Java Joes set!
Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Miss Ink Stamps - Spectrum Noir

I started by stamping the lady and waiter, then coloring them with my Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend Markers. Then I fussy cut them out with some sharp scissors. I also stamped the sentiment and trimmed it down to a rectangle.

Next, I die cut a circle and then used a stencil and Distress Oxide Inks to add some color to the circle. I added the circle to a white card base with foam tape.

Graciellie Designs - Your Kindness

Hello!!

I'm popping in today with a card for you!! I used a new set from Graciellie Designs called Your Kindness! It has a gorgeous flower image and sentiments!
Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Graciellie Designs - Spectrum Noir

In Word I added several copies of the flower images and made them a little bit bigger then usual! To help me better figure out how to size images I open up a box and resize it to 4.25 x 5.5. Then I play around with my images to see what size and how many I need for that particular project. Other days I just make sure the size is right and print away knowing I'm going to be cutting out the images!

Anyway, I added the flowers, layering them buy having some be behind the text. When I was happy with the placement I printed them out. I used my Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend Markers to color the flowers and leaves. Usually I write down the colors I use, but for some reason I didn't!

After everything was colored I trimmed the panel down to fit an A2 card and adhered it directly to it. I had printed an sentiment, but after fussy cutting it out and moving it around the panel I really didn't like it.

So, I decided to make an no sentiment card!! Instead I cut two strips of black card stock and adhered them along the bottom and left side of the card. Finally I added a few sequins for some sparkle!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Miss Ink Stamps - Java Joes

Hello!!

I'm stopping by with some great news and a special sneak peek!! There is a fab new stamp company opening later this week, its called Miss Ink Stamps! The Coffee Loving Cardmakers have teamed up with this new stamp company to show case a couple of the new stamps! Check out the CLC post here to learn more info about this awesome new company!!

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Miss Ink Stamps - Spectrum Noir

My card features the Java Joes stamp set. I started by stamping the images and then using my Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend markers to color them up. Then I fuss cut the images.

Next, I die cut a stitched rectangle and used Distress Oxide Inks to color the background. I started with Cracked Pistachio and then added some flicks of water. I decided it needed a bit of ground, so I placed a straight piece of card stock over the panel, using it as a mask and added Wilted violet. Then I added a little more water, it really shows up well with the purple, versus the green.

I added the coffee cafe, pot and chalkboard with foam tape and then stamped the sentiment. I trimmed it to a sentiment strip and added it with foam tape to the card. Last, I added the panel to a white card base.

Graciellie Designs - Flutter Away

Hello!

I'm stopping in with a card I made using Graciellie Designs! I used a new digital stamp set called Flutter Away! These feathers are so cute and like always the set includes fabulous sentiments!!

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Graciellie Designs - Spectrum Noir

I started with a Word document and added a few of the feather images, resizing as needed. Then I arranged them at the top as I knew I wanted them to look like they where coming in from the top of the card.

Then I added in the sentiment, resizing it to fit. I printed off the file and then trimmed it to fit a card. Next, I used my Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend markers to color them. I went with purple, blue and a green turquoise.

To finish off the card I added a few sequins. Last, I just added my panel to a white cardbase!
