Birthday Card Remade for Coffee Lovers!

This week is coffee and donut themed and I have to be honest, I don’t like coffee so it was hard for me to get inspired. I looked on Pinterest and other blogs for inspiration and nothing was striking me. I was starting panic! What should I make?! What will I do?! I talked with Nami and she gave me few ideas to get my creative juices flowing. Thanks Nami! I went through my previous projects and decided to remake a previous card but make it for coffee lovers. So here you go you crazy coffee lovers, this is just for you!

This is the original card:

This is the card remade for coffee lovers:

The card that I remade is the from the Same Card in 3 colors post. Instead of using the Dot Border from the Retro Border set, I decided to use the Mini Coffee Cup stamp. I used Lawn Fawns Peacock dye ink for the stripes in card and Walnut for the coffee cups. Also, I replaced the balloon with the coffee cup but I kept the Happy Birthday script. The coffee cup was colored with Copic markers and I kept it simple by not doing any shading. I hope that you enjoyed todays project.

Below is a list of the supplies that I used along with links where you can purchase them. Enjoy!

 

 

 

 

DeNami Design St. Patty’s Day Card

St. Patricks Day is a holiday that is often overlooked. Even in the crafting industry. Lucky for us Nami created some adorable stamps for us to make some great cards and projects. For my card I decided to go with the traditional green theme for St. Patricks Day.

 

For the card base I used green cardstock and layered it with Doodlebug Happy-Go-Lucky green stripe paper which I cut out using the  Simon Says Stamp Rectangle Stitch die. I used the same green cardstock and white cardstock with Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duo 3 die to create the main piece. I stamped the chickie and the clovers in Memento Black ink on the white cardstock. On the top of the green die cut I stamped the clover in Lawn Fawns Freshly Cut Grass dye ink to add a little more interest. I stamped the inside of the card with “Happy St. Patrick’s Day” stamp in Versafine Onyx black ink because it is a great ink for sentiments. I kept the coloring simple using Copic markers and used a Gold Signo pen for the buckle and band on the hat. I hoped that you enjoyed my card for today.

Happy Birthday Card in 3 Colors!

Does it seem like every time you turn around you need another birthday card?! I decided to make life simple and make the same card in 3 different color combinations to make life a little easier. You can make these using the persons favorite colors to personalize it for them.

For this project you only need 4 stamps and you create as many different variations as your heart desires! 2 border stamps, a birthday greeting, and a birthday image. You will also need 2 dye inks, Memento black ink and one copic marker to match one of the dye inks. I created my stamp panel using the 2 border stamps and alternating between the borders and colors. I trimmed my panel to leave a border on the card. I stamped the birthday sentiment and the balloon on white cardstock and colored the balloon to match one of the borders. For the balloon I added some sparkle and shine by adding some of the shimmer Pico Embellisher on it and let it dry. I layered the sentiment on a piece of grey cardstock that matched all the color combinations on my cards.

As always, below is a list of the supplies that I used along with link where you can purchase them. Enjoy!

 

DeNami Design: Adorable Valentine Box

Valentine’s day is coming up fast! If you need a quick and easy little gift for some one or for your kids to hand out at class this project is perfect for you!. I LOVE all DeNami’s valentine themed owls and you can use any of them for this project. This project takes about 10 minutes to complete one but you can easily mass produce if you want to do to make them for your kids class.

First, I used my milk carton die from Lawn Fawn to cut out the box. You will need 2 pieces of the same paper and run it through you die cut machine twice to make the milk carton. To assemble the carton you can use any adhesive but I used a liquid adhesive. Leave the top of the carton open so that you can put treats or a small present in the carton. I stamped my owl and the “xoxo” on white cardstock in black ink. To color the owl, I used Copic Markers. I kept the coloring simple and didn’t do any shading because I didn’t think it was needed. I used a scalloped 1 1/2” circle punch to cut out the owl and adhered it to the carton with foam tape. I found these little clothes pins with Valentine sayings at my local craft store and used it to close the carton. TIP: for the clothes pin to hold the carton closed hold the lip of the carton and push downwards carefully. This will help the paper keep its shape and the clothes pin to keep the carton close. If you don’t do this there’s a good chance that the clothes pin will pop off! This happened to me a few times before I figured out!
