My first card features the Seasonal Sweetheart stamp set. First, I stamped the girl and a flower and colored them with my Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend Markers. Then I fussy cut them out.

Next, I made my shaker, using My Favorite Things LLD Coffee Cup die cut. I cut it into some watercolor card stock, then used some distress inks to add some color to the panel. Then I added a piece of acetate to the coffee cup window.

I added foam tape around the cup and then added some of Trinity Stamps sequins and confetti included a few Coffee Bean Hearts as the bubble's in my coffee cup! Then I added the panel over the sequins adhering it to a white card base.

Last I stamped the thankful for you sentiment and added the girl and flower with foam tape!

For my second card I started with Trinity's Coffee with Character stamping two of the cups on a watercolor panel. On a separate piece I stamped two different lids. To color everything I used some Spectrum Noir inkpads. Then I fussy cut the lids and adhered them to the background of cups.

Next, I stamped and colored the girl from Seasonal Sweetheart, then I fussy cut her and the flower out. I also stamped the sentiment You Art Sweet on white card stock.

Graciellie Designs - Summer Sunflower

Hello!!

I'm sharing a card today that I made with Graciellie Designs Summer Sunflower digital stamps! This is a great set, it could go for summer and am looking forward to using it in the fall, too!!

I used Word to make the sunflower fairly big and adding a sentiment on top of the image. After printing the image I used my Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend Markers to color it.

Next, I fussy cut around the top part of the flower and trimming along the bottom of the sentiment. I set it aside to work on the background. With a panel of white card stock I used The Crafter's Workshop Mini Art Is stencil and Spectrum Noir Ink pads to ink up the word stencil. The colors I used with the stencil are Holly Leaf, Grass Hopper and Pine Tree.

From my pattern paper stash I found the perfect dark green pattern from Carta Bella Welcome Home paper pad. I added this paper to a white card base and then adhered the stencil panel with foam tape.

Next, I added the sunflower with foam tape also. I thought about adding gems, but in the end I figured the background was busy enough!

Graciellie Designs - Summer Sunflower

Hello!

It's been a little quite here (and now there is a little flurry of activity, I know!!) :) It's coming down to the last 3 weeks of my internship and that means a project to finish, tests to study for, graduation stuff to do and a job to find!!! I'm looking forward to the end of May!!

But, not to fear I continue to get in the craft room to do some creating! Today's card features new digital stamps from Graciellie Designs! Summer Sunflower is an awesome new stamp set, perfect for the (finally) warm weather we are getting in the north!
Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Graciellie Designs - Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend Markers
For my card I made the sunflower digital stamp really big! I use Word to resize the image and then print. Then I used my Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend Markers to color it up.

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Graciellie Designs - Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend Markers

Next, I trimmed the image so it was about 1/4 inches smaller then an A2 card base. I found some pretty green card stock and added that and the image to a white card base.

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Graciellie Designs - Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend Markers

Then I printed the Waiting On The Sunshine & Thinking Of You sentiment and trimed it down to a rectangle. I layered some yellow and orange card stock behind the sentiment, adhering the layers together. I wrapped some twine around the layers at one end and tied it in a bow. Last I added the layers to the card with foam tape!!

The second card features the same stamps and dies. I used an oval die to create the window and placed the window over the kraft bag that came with my Honey Bee Stamps!! The bag was so pretty I just had to use it on a card!

This card I started with Spring Floral and die cut it from watercolor paper. Then I used some of my Papertrey Ink ink pads to watercolor them. While that was drying I cut a panel of watercolor paper and used one of the pink inks to watercolor it.

Next, I used Make A Wish stamp set and white heat embossed the Happy Birthday on a strip of black card stock. When everything was dry I adhered the floral die cuts on top of the watercolor panel and last added the sentiment with foam tape.
