National Coffee Day Blog Hop with Kat Scrappiness

 

 

Hello KS fans!  You should have arrived here from Meghan Kennihan’s blog. It’s NATIONAL COFFEE DAY and Kat Scrappiness is CELEBRATING in a BIG WAY!  Grab a mug or a pot of coffee and join us for all the fun. We have a fabulous SALE and BLOG HOP for you today with tons of PRIZES. We have 20% off our ENTIRE Coffee Category Today Only using code COFFEE2019.  We also have a giveaway so please make sure to scroll down towards the end of this post to find out how you can participate and WIN some prizes.

 

For my project today, I am showcasing the KS Layered Coffee Cup Die, KS Stitched Scalloped Border Die, Newton’s Nook Pumpkin Latte Stamp set (sentiment) and the Stitched Leaves Dies by Lawn Fawn.

 

I die-cut the KS Layered Coffee Cup dies on some Neenah solar white card stock.  I also die-cut the coffee sleeve with some Lawn Fawn patterned paper and assembled the pieces together.

 

I inked up some Bristol smooth white card stock with some distress oxide inks and used the Lawn Fawn stitched leaves die to die-cut the pieces that I need.

 

I used the KS Stitched Scalloped Border Dies to create some scalloped border on a piece of beige card stock.  I adhered this piece on my card base and also adhered all the die-cut pieces to assemble my card.

 

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Newton’s Nook Pumpkin Latte stamp set on the coffee sleeve with some Versamark ink and sprinkled some embossing powder.  I heat set the sentiment using my Wagner heating tool.  Here’s my card:

 

 

To finish my design, I added the gold bow on the coffee cup.  I think this card turned out really cute.  Here’s a closer look:

National Coffee Day Blog Hop with CAS-ual Fridays

 

It’s National Coffee Day and we are celebrating at CASual Fridays with a blog hop.  For my project today, I am showcasing the Hearts A2 Panel Fri-Die, Cup of Coffee stamp set, Coffee Cup Fri-Dies and the Coffee Talk stamp set.  We have three prizes up for grabs so make sure to read at the end of the blog post for a chance to WIN.

 

To make this day even more fun, CASual Friday had put their entire COFFEE COLLECTION on Sale for 20% off.  No coupon code needed.  For further discount, you can avail my discount code “MARIASENTME” for 15% off.

 

 

To begin, I started by using a clouds stencil from my stash and inked up my background using different shades of distress oxide inks.  I wanted some oranges and pinks as my background color to symbolize fall.  I cut another piece of Bristol smooth white card stock and used the Hearts A2 panel fri-die.  I set this die-cut aside so I can work on the other elements I need for my card.

 

I stamped the coffee cup from the cup of coffee stamp set on a brown patterned paper.  I put this piece inside my MISTI stamping tool to stamp the sentiment from the coffee talk stamp set.  I used Versamark ink and sprinkled some white embossing powder, and heat-set this with my heating tool.

 

I adhered the colored panel on an A2 size side-fold card base.  I added the Hearts A2 background panel with liquid adhesive and started working on creating my scene.  I used some fall leaves that I die-cut awhile ago from my stash and started layering them for some added texture and dimension.

 

Lastly, I used another die from my stash to die-cut the “whipped cream” and colored it lightly with my alcohol markers.  I foam-mounted this piece onto my card.

 

 

I really LOVE how this card turned out.   The white sentiment on the coffee cup stood out and the colors of the leaves complimented the colored background.  Here’s a little close-up:

 

 

 

I hope you like my card today.  Here are the details for the giveaway:

 

We have three (3) $15 prize codes up for grabs:

 

1.  1 lucky comment on the main Cas-ual Fridays Blog post win.

 

2.  1 lucky comment on @CASualFridaysStamps facebook group will win (follow the FB group).

Newton’s Nook Designs & Wow Collaboration Week

 

Newton’s Nook Designs and WOW embossing powders are collaborating all week long to offer you inspiration using their products together!  Both design teams will be sharing fun ways to use embossing powders on your projects using WOW embossing powders paired with Newton’s Nook Designs stamps!  We also have a GIVEAWAY so please make sure to read at the end of this blog post to find out how you can WIN.

 

For my project today, I am showcasing the Fall-ing For you stamp set, Autumn Leaves die set, Pines & Holly die set, with the White Puff Embossing powder by Wow!

 

To start, I inked up some Bristol smooth white card stock with some peacock feathers and broken china distress oxide inks.  I used my distress sprayer to spray some water on the background and dabbed it with paper towel to dry.

 

I die-cut the leaves using the Autumn leaves die set with some colored card stock and vellum.   I also die cut some pine needles using one of my favorite dies, the Pines & Holly die set.

 

I die-cut a frame using a die from my stash and added foam adhesive to this piece and set this aside.  I stamped the sentiment from the Fall-ing For You stamp set with some Versamark ink on the colored background.  I poured some White Puff embossing powder and heat-set this using my Wagner heating tool.  I foam-mounted the frame that I die-cut earlier onto my colored background.

 

Lastly, I added the leaves with some liquid and foam adhesives and also adhered the bow.  I added some brown jewel to finish the design.  Here’s my card:

 

 

 

I think combining the Fall-ing For you stamp set with the Autumn Leaves die set makes the perfect fall-theme card.  It’s simple but creates a huge impact.  This is also my first time using some Wow! Embossing powder and I really LOVE it!  Here’s a little close-up of the card:

Newton’s Nook Designs & Therm-O-Web Collaboration Week

 

This week Newton’s Nook Designs and Therm O Web are partnering for fabulous Fall, Halloween and Christmas inspiration! All week long both design teams will be sharing ways to use Therm O Web products with Newton’s Nook Designs stamps!  We also have  GIVEAWAY so please make sure to read at the end of this post to find out how you can WIN.

 

I went NND and TMW crazy and created three projects for you today!  I am showcasing (one of my all-time favorite stamp set from Newton’s Nook)  the Sweater Weather stamp set and its coordinating dies with the Happy Howl-Oween stamp set and coordinating dies.  I am also showcasing a LOT of products provided to us by Therm O Web, which you will be able to see if you watch my YouTube video below.  I also would like to take this opportunity to thank Therm O Web for spoiling the NND Design Team with your amazing products.

 

For my first project, I die-cut a masking paper with a circle die and masked my Bristol smooth white card stock.  I inked up my background with some distress oxide inks.  I sprayed my inked background with some water to get the oxidize effect and dabbed it with paper towel to dry.  I used the Deco Foil Transfer Gel and Newton’s Nook Cascading Stars Stencil to create the stars on my background.  I set this piece aside to dry for about 40 minutes and ran it through my laminator with some Deco Foil Ocean Blue Transfer Sheets.  I removed my mask and colored the moon a little bit with my B000 copic marker.

 

 

To create my scene for my trick-or-treaters, I used a house die from my stash and TMW Flock transfer sheets in Purple Punch, Sunshine Yellow, Black Velvet and White Latte to create my spooky house.  I also die-cut the grass using the Land Borders die set.

 

I stamped my image using the Happy Howl-Oween stamp set and colored the images in with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  I die-cut the image using the coordinating die.  Now that I have all of my elements, I started building up my scene.

 

 

I used a white pigment ink and a blending brush to highlight the grass.  By doing so, this gave it a more realistic effect since I have a HUGE moon shining over everything!  I finished my design by stamping the bats.  I also stamped my sentiment in Versamark ink and sprinkled some white embossing powder.  I used my Wagner heating tool to heat set the sentiment.  Here’s a closer look at the card:

 

 

For my second project, I wanted to use the flock transfer sheets and my embossing folder  to create a winter scene for my critters from the Sweater Weather stamp set.  I have a process video for you for the two Christmas cards.  Here’s the first one:

 

 

For the second Christmas card, I used the Oh Christmas Tree Designer Toner Sheets , the White Latte Flock Transfer Sheet and the Gina K Designs for TMW Red Velvet Deco Foil to create a fun shaker card:

 

 

Here’s my YouTube process video:

Pumpkin Spice & You with Newton’s Nook Designs

Today, I’m sharing another fall/coffee-theme card with one of my favorite stamp sets released last month called Pumpkin Latte.  I don’t know about you, but I am just so ready for sweater weather!  It is still extremely HOT and humid over here and I am dreaming of some cooler weather, or even rain!   Who else is getting antsy and waiting for fall to come?

 

To begin, I stamped my images using Spectrum Noir Alcohol Proof Dye Ink in Rustic Brown on some Neenah solar white card stock.  I colored my images in with my Copic and Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  I used the coordinating dies, to die-cut the images.

 

On another piece of Neenah solar white card stock, I die-cut a frame and used the negative piece to mask-off some Bristol smooth white card stock.  I used the new Hills & Grass Stencil to add my grassy hill with Mowed Lawn distress oxide ink.  I flipped the stencil so that I can create another grassy hill for added depth and dimension.  I also used the Clouds Stencil with Carved Pumpkin and Worn Lipstick distress oxide inks to create my fall sky.

 

 

Before I adhered my frame on my colored background, I used my Fog ink to stamp small images all over the card.  I wanted to add more details to the background but without overwhelming the whole design.  I foam-mounted the frame on the card and adhered the leaves along the side with some liquid adhesive.

 

Lastly, I foam-mounted the focal image on my card.  I stamped the sentiment from the Fall-ing For You stamp set using my Misti stamping tool for more precision.  Here’s my card:

 

 

The Fall-ing For You stamp set is one of my all-time favorite stamps by Newton’s Nook Designs.   This card is really simple but I love the bold sentiment and also love the colors I used on this card.  Here’s a closer look:

 

 

That is all for today.  I hope you like my card and got inspired.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below in case you would like to purchase them.  Some affiliate links may have been used for some of the products linked, without an additional cost to you.  Thank you for stopping by my blog today and happy stamping!

Today, I am sharing a birthday card showcasing the Let’s Party stamp set.  I started by stamping my images on some Neenah solar white 110 lb. card stock and colored my images in using some Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  I die-cut the images using the coordinating dies.
I inked up an A-2 size piece of Bristol smooth white card stock with Peacock Feathers distress oxide ink.  To add more texture, I added some gold splatters on the colored background using my Sakura watercolor and my watercolor brush.  I waited for about half an hour for this to dry, and adhered this piece on an A2 size card base.
I die-cut the words “Happy Birthday” a few times on white card stock using a die from Mama Elephant.  I inked up the top piece with some Dusty Concord distress oxide ink.
I foam-mounted the die-cut panel on my colored background.  This frame piece was die-cut using the Gift Box cover up die-namics from My Favorite things.  I adhered the Happy Birthday die-cut on the foreground and added my cute critters.  Here’s my card:
To finish my design, I added some glossy accents to the balloon for added texture and dimension and also adhered the little gift boxes between the two dogs.  Here’s a little close-up:
I hope you like my projects today.  Please visit Simon Says Stamp to purchase this exclusive stamp set.  Thank you for stopping by and happy stamping!

For my first card, I also used the Spooky Halloween stamp set and the Land Border die set.

 

 

I ink-blended my background with some distress oxide inks and die-cut the other elements that I needed to create my scene.   I stamped and colored my images with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and used the dies to die-cut the images.  I foam-mounted the image on my card and finished my design by stamping my sentiment with Versamark ink and heat-set this with my heating tool.  Here’s a closer look:

I used the Picket Fence die for the picket fence and the Land Border die set for the grass with some black card stock.  I assembled the card by adhering all of the pieces that I needed for my Halloween scene.

 

 

I added the ghosts using the Ghosts stencil on my card by slightly tracing the images with my Versamark pen.  I sprinkled some white embossing powder and heat-set this with my heating tool.  I did the same thing for my sentiment.  I finished the design by stamping the bats.  Here’s a closer look:

For today’s release, the design team is showcasing the Autumn Mice stamp set and Autumn Mice coordinating dies:

 

 

To begin, I stamped my images on some Neenah solar white card stock.  I colored the images in with my Spectrum Noir Alcohol markers and used the coordinating dies to die-cut the images.

 

I couldn’t pick a favorite image because they’re all so cute and AMAZING!  I decided to feature all of them in one card.  I used a storybook die from my stash to die-cut the white frame.   I adhered a gingham patterned paper onto an A2-size card base.  I foam-mounted the frame on my card and also adhered the mice with foam adhesives.

 

To give the card more texture but not overwhelm the whole design, I die-cut the same gingham patterned paper using the circle from the Frames squared stamp set and banner dies from my stamp.  I adhered these pieces on my card with liquid adhesive.

 

 

To finish the design, I stamped my sentiment with Versafine Onyx black ink.  Here’s a closer look:

Newton’s Nook August Release Day 1 – Pumpkin Latte

 

It is that time of the month where the entire design team get so excited to show off the new stamps, dies and stencils by Newton’s Nook Designs.  You also have a chance to win the stamp set being revealed each day so please read through til the end of the blog post to find out more info.  [Just a little important note:  I know some of you had difficulties finding the comments section.  If you would like to leave a comment to participate in the giveaway, the “comments section” will only be ever visible when a single post on Word Press is being viewed. Please click on this particular blog post and you will be able to leave a comment below.  Thank you!]  

 

For the first day of the reveals, we are showcasing the Pumpkin Latte stamp set and Pumpkin Latte coordinating dies:

 

 

I started out with an A2 size panel of Bristol smooth white card stock and ink-blended this piece with some distress oxide inks.  I inked up another piece of Bristol smooth white card stock and used the Land Borders die to die-cut the hills.

 

I die-cut the birch trees using the Forest Scene Builder die set with some gray card stock.  I also die-cut the pumpkin leaves and vines using an old die from my stash.

 

I stamped and colored my images on some Neenah solar white card stock with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Proof Ink in Rustic Brown.  I colored my images in Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. I die-cut the images using the Pumpkin Latte coordinating dies.

 

I adhered the birch trees on my colored background with some liquid adhesive and foam-mounted the hills.  I layered the rest of the colored images with either liquid or foam adhesive.

 

To finish my design I used my white gel pen and added some line and dots to the images to give it more dimension.  Here’s a little close-up:

 

 

For my second card, I used the Tree Rings stencil to color my Bristol smooth white card stock with my mini ink blending tool and Vintage Photo distress ink.  I smooshed my Aged Mahogany distress oxide ink on an acrylic block and added some water.  I used my watercolor brush to sprinkle some of the color to my colored background.  I let this dry for about 20 minutes and used my frame border die to die-cut the piece.  I foam-mounted the frame and adhered these pieces onto an A2-size kraft card base.

 

I die-cut the leaves using the Autumn Leaves die set with different patterned papers.  I also die-cut another banner strip from some coffee card stock and stamped the sentiment with versamark ink.  I sprinkled white embossing powder and heat-set this with my Wagner Heating tool.  I adhered the banner with some foam adhesive and started layering the autumn leaves on the card.

 

Lastly, I adhered my colored image on the card with foam adhesive and added Caribbean Ocean crystal drops for added texture.

 

 

I don’t know about you but making these cards made me crave some pumpkin spice latte.  I am not sure if they’re already available at Starbuck’s but I’m definitely craving one.  Here’s a closer look:

 

 

What do you think?  Which one is your favorite today?  I hope you like my cards today.
