Buzzed with The Rabbit Hole Designs

Hello The Rabbit Hole Designs fans!  The Rabbit Hole Designs is one of the super sponsors for the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog hop, so you will be seeing A LOT of coffee-themed cards from the design team this week.

For my project today, I am showcasing the Caffeinated Bee stamp set.

TRHDCaffeinatedBee2A

Card recipe:

  • stamp the bee image on some Neenah classic crest solar white 110 lb card stock and color him in with alcohol markers (or any medium of your choice).
  • I used my Brother Scan N Cut 2 Machine to die-cut the image.
  • I used my Medallion Coverplate die to die-cut an A2 size panel with some white card stock.
  • I used a circle die to die-cut the middle piece of this panel and I inked up this small circle with some distress oxide inks and my hexagon stencil.  I adhered this piece on the card stock.
  • I used an alphabet die from my stash to die-cut the words #BUZZED on some black card stock.
  • I adhered the pieces on the card.
  • I used another branch die from my stash to die-cut the branch and leaves, coloring them with my alcohol markers.  I adhered the pieces on my card.
  • Lastly, I used foam adhesive to adhere my Caffeinated Bee.

Here’s a little close-up:

Since I have a white-on-white background, I used my Dandelion Yellow Nuvo Crystal Drops to add some pop of color to my card.  I hope you like my project today.  The Supplies I used are listed and linked below.

Coffee-themed Card with Miss Ink Stamps

It’s week 4 guest-designing for Miss Ink Stamps and for today’s card, I am showcasing the Java Joes stamp set and my new love, Spectrum Noir TriBlend markers.  Here’s what the stamp set look like:

 

javajoes_540x

I started by stamping my images on some Neenah classic crest 110 lb. solar white card stock  with Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink (this is an alcohol-friendly ink).  I colored my images in with my TriBlend Markers.  The video below will show you how I colored my card, using the markers.  I just love, love, love the new TriBlends.  You get 3 markers out of one and they blend so easily.  Spectrum Noir will be coming out with more colors soon and I highly recommend them.

Here’s my card:

Spring-Summer Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop with Kat Scrapiness

CLBH2019SpringSummer

I am so excited to share with you today’s blog post!  It is that time of the year again where all coffee lover’s unite and start the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Amy Tsuruta and the rest of her amazing team responsible for facilitating this great hop!  I don’t know how you guys do it but you all rock!

katscrapclbhpromo

I started out by die-cutting my coffee cup with the Layered Coffee Cup Die set on Neenah 110 lb solar white and Neenah desert storm card stock.  I used my alcohol markers to lightly colored the coffee cup to give it dimension.  I assembled the layered coffee cup and stamped my sentiment using the Let’s Get Caffeinated stamp set.

On a piece of Bristol smooth white card stock, I used my blending brushes to add some pastel colors with some Lawn Fawn inks and inked up my background.  I used a stamp set from my stash with some white pigment ink to create the “bokeh” effect on my card.

Using an angel wings die from my stash, I die-cut the piece with some iridescent vellum.  I adhered the wings to the cup and adhere this piece on my card base.  Here’s my card:

KatScrapCLBH2019SummerSpri1A

The angel wings went perfectly well with the sentiment that I used.  To finish my design, I added some white jewels on my card.  Here’s a closer look:

I just love the “cartoony” look on this card and the expression on the rabbit’s face is priceless!

Here’s another card that I made using the stamp set:

TRHDCaffeinatedBunny2A

I really like the sentiment that I used on this card using the Perfectly Blended stamp set.  If you are a coffee-lover, you need to get both stamp sets.  They will work well together or the Perfectly Blended stamp can be used on different coffee-themed cards.

Sorry I was so Crabby

Hello The Rabbit Hole Designs fans!  I am back today to share another clean and simple card (“CAS”), showcasing the ever-classy, Sofishticated stamp set by the Rabbit Hole Designs.  Here’s what it looks like:

Here’s is my card:

TRHDSofishticated2A

Card recipe:

  • stamp the crab image on some Neenah classic crest solar white card stock and color him in with alcohol markers (or any medium of your choice).
  • use some painter’s tape to mask the spaces between the crab.
  • use the waves stencil with the make-up brush to color in some waves (avoiding the crab image if at all possible).  The ink that I used here is so light that I didn’t really have to mask the image itself.

  • die-cut the “sorry” sentiment using a die from my stash.  Adhere this piece with some liquid adhesive
  • stamp the sentiment “I was so crabby” using Versafine Onyx black in and the card is all finished.  Simple and classy!

Here’s a closer look:

I have been really loving some clean and simple designs lately!  I hope you do as well.  I know a lot of my subscribers are beginners and this is one simple card you can mask-produce.   I hope you like my project today.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Have a nice day and happy crafting!

Just a Note with Miss Ink Stamps

It’s week 3 for my guest-design post with Miss Ink Stamps and for today’s card, I am showcasing the Magnolia Sympathy stamp set.  Here’s what it looks like:

magnolia-stamp

I started by stamping my images on some Neenah desert storm card stock with Versamark ink and I heat-embossed this with some white embossing powder.  I die-cut the the flowers using my Brother Scan N Cut 2 machine.  I did the same thing on another Neenah desert stormA2 size panel.  I colored the images in with my Prisma color pencils.

I adhered the die-cut flowers on top of the colored images to give it more dimension.  I stamped the sentiment with some Versamark ink and heat-set it with white embossing powder.  I finished my design by adding some white jewels.  Here’s my card:

MissInkMagnolia1A

Another clean and simple card.  I love that the stamp set is so versatile you can use it for any occasion, not just for sympathy cards.   Here’s a closer look at the beautiful flowers:
