Coffee Helps


Today is a fun day, as the final day of sneak peeks over at Craftin Desert Divas for their December release Event!!!  Not only do I get to share a first look at the final new stamp set in the release, but I get to share a look at the stamp set designed for the the 2017 Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop event!  Actually, I get to show you a look at the new stamp set and a look at the new digital stamp designed for the Coffee Lovers Event!

CC5C7EEF-D56C-4D21-92E1-55FE6093C1E3-16536-00000DA0A79EC1A9First I want to share new digital stamp, Cactus Coffee.

I printed the image out in gray scale and pulled out my copic markers to color in the image!  I then grabbed my Distress Oxides in Cracked Pistachio and Vintage Photo and blended in the background!

I stamped out a sentiment from the new Brewed with Love stamp set and die cut the sentiment out with CDDs Mix It Up Dies.  The die cut got a little blending with some Vintage Photo and popped up with some 3D Adhesive Squares.  Everything got a touch of white gel pen.

I think this cactus is such a happy little guy.  Makes me want to go grab a cup of coffee!

The new Brewed with Love stamp set is just perfect for any coffee lover!

When making this card I created a pictorial tutorial of my coloring process!  Just scroll down if you want to see the copics I used to created this card.

I stamped out two of the images from the new stamp set and one of the sentiments.  Then pulled out a copic friendly black pen and drew in the scene.  I figured it made sense to have these guys resting in bed and set upon the nightstand.  I also really liked the idea of the sentiment being framed above the bed.

For the nightstand, headboard, and frame I used E31, E33, and E35.

I hope you enjoyed seeing the pictorial review of this card.  To finish it I die cut it with CDD’s Crazy Stitched Frame Dies and adhered to an A2 card frame.
