2017 Spring Coffee Lovers Hop #2

Here is another card I made with the Verve Limited Edition digital stamp set called Lucky Day. I used glossy card stock for much of this one as well. I made this up ahead of time so that I could use it for the 2017 Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. I was told green was a very spring thing, so I took Amy at her word. And, the blog is advertised on the side of my blog if you care to join in on the fun.

I am not very knowledgeable about using digital stamp sets so please excuse this novice's approach to using them. But I at least gave it a try.


I swiped ink across the pattern paper I created by doing a copy and paste to a Word doc. I used glossy card stock again. After I had swiped on the ink I added more color to the shamrocks with Tombow pens. And, I layered it onto a lighter green card stock, then added my sentiment and the nice cup image that also came with the digital set. By adding a few gems I completed my design.

Thanks for looking and for your great comments always.

God bless,
Verna

  13. Swiping the card stock with the inkpad was a genius idea because it makes the shamrocks stand out more, especially after you colored them again. You know what Irish coffee is, don't you? You should have put a little bottle of booze at the bottom. I think you used a piece of metallic green card stock behind the saying; it's great and makes the saying really pop out.
