Vintage Lady Coffee Card

This morning I grabbed a few minutes and did a bit of hopping on the 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and found this free digital from Tlc Creations which I think is called Paulette. Anyway I saved it to my computer and this afternoon made a card with it.



The digi was in black and white and lightly sketched but for my card I added some subtle colors with my colored pencils. Then I added Versamark ink all over the cut out image and added some clear embossing powder from Gina K. Designs and heat set it. I then layered this to a black double stitched square die cut which was cut with a Gina K. Designs die. Next I added this to a panel of pattern paper which came from my gift box of yellow items which I won in the hop last year from The Cutting Cafe.

Along the edge of this panel I added a row of the Filigree Leaf Die from Gina K. Designs which I cut out in various Fall colors. Then along the other side on the bottom I added the sentiment and pumpkin which were from the Harvest Blessings set by Joy Clair. The pumpkin and sentiment were stamped with Gina K. Designs black ink and then I colored the pumpkin in with some Copics.

This main yellow pattern paper panel was then layered onto black card stock and then again some orange card stock before I placed it on the white card base.

Now that was fun and I was glad I got time to get a card done again today. We are in a tornado watch until midnight so I may have to turn off the computer later on if there is a lot of lightning. So I am rushing this post. Hopefully, I got all the details in. Thanks for visiting and I hope you are able to do some of the hop as well.

God bless,

Brentwood The Owl

This is the third card I have made for the 2017 Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and this time I used another freebie digi that is available for a limited time during the coffee hop. You can get it at JessicaLynnOriginals.com and even though I am not too fond of using digital stamps, this little guy just caught my eye and I had to use him in a card as well.


I used this digital stamp in a little scene and I took a tree die by Diemond Dies and die cut it from a scrap piece I had foiled using Deco Foil Amber Waterfall. I just love that Deco Foil and ever since I got myself a laminator I have used foiling a lot in my cards.

This Brentwood image was colored with my Copics and then that was layered also over the tree die image. Next I die cut this panel with a Memory Box Cross Stitched Border die. I had previously sponged that panel of white card stock with light blue ink from Gina K. Designs. All were then placed on a base card of white card stock and that completed my simple scene.

Even though I had to work with tomatoes again today I am glad I managed to get a little bit of card making done. I hope all of you are having a fun week and if at all possible will take in some of the fun of the Coffee Hop too. You never know! You could be a lucky winner as there is lots and lots of prizes.

Thanks for the lovely comments you always leave too.

God bless,

Another Coffee Card

I was doing some commenting on the 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop when I came across this free digital stamp from Craftin Desert Divas so I grabbed it and today I made a quick card using it. I used the already colored version on the stamp set and from there used pattern papers and dies to make my card. I love how it turned out too! And having the image already colored felt a bit like cheating but it sure did go a lot faster and it matched all the items I wanted to use too!


I used two sets of Gina K. Designs square die sets to cut out the image. I also added some frost on the pumpkin with Gina K. Designs Frozen glitter. The plaid paper is from the Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Fall Paper Pack. This pattern paper and the sentiment were die cut using dies from the Die-Namics Blueprints 29 set. I outlined all of the layers with black card stock. After adhering all of the items to a white card base I then added some little orange rhinestones along each side of the sentiment.



Oh, this is such a fun and cute image and it is perfect for this time of year. I hope many of you will join in on the 2017 Coffee Lovers Hop. It is a fantastic fun thing and there is lots and lots of prizes being awarded too besides getting free digital stamps. By doing the hop this is getting me a jump start on my Fall card designs.

Well, thanks for the visit and for the comments. I love each and every one.

God bless,
Verna
