Coffee or Cocoa, whatever keeps you grounded (smile) • New Coffee Stamp Set

Happy Monday! I truly hope it’s a good one for you (and me, as well)! I know there’s always so much to do in a week, and our schedules are usually full, but I also know that somehow we manage to find time to stay creative! That creativity is healing and inspiring…

It was a series of little creative breaks what brought me here today! Last week, I found myself illustrating a new stamp set, and then making a card with it! This new set is fun, sweet and extra cute! It is called Coffee or Cocoa, and it is the biggest coffee themed stamp set we’ve ever put together! It comes with 3 images, and 8 sentiments… (Lots of fun!)

Extra Layered Background using SVG Cut Files and Digital Papers

This card comes with many layers… I started out by cutting one of the new Heart Cards SVG backgrounds on my Cricut Explore Air 2, from white cardstock. Next, I layered a torn piece of patterned paper from the Sweet Love Digital Paper Pack and attached it across the center of the background using Deco Foil Foam Adhesive Sheets. I also adhered a second layer of the same patterned paper underneath the white heart panel, with the same foam sheets. All of this was then added to a GK Passionate Pink Premium Cardstock card base.

Printing & Coloring my Images

I had so much fun overlaying and printing both heart cups together! I used Microsoft Word to do it… Because of the way the images are created, you’ll be able to do overlays like this one very easily, so no technical knowledge is required… Just insert the images, and place one on top of the other, and then print! I used an inkjet Brother Printer, since regular ink works great with alcohol markers, and that is what I wanted to color the heart cups with! I printed them on Canson Mixed Media Paper.

I used Spectrum Noir markers from the Magenta and Green Teal color family for the cups, and then Red Browns and Muted Browns for the cocoa and coffee. A white gel pen came in handy at the very end to emphasize the little white dots on the cocoa, and also paint some art on the coffee with the help of an Arteza waterbrush (smile).

The sentiment on the other hand, was printed using a Samsung laser printer, because toner is what works better with vellum. I attached the cups with 3D Foam Squares and the sentiment banner with the new GK Adhesive Dot Runner. Finally I added some Unity Sequins using Ultra Bond Liquid Adhesive.

Sale Extended

I love all the possibilities with this new Coffee or Cocoa digital stamps set. I know you’ll love it too!

Blog Hop + Giveaway + New Stamp Bundles + Winners

Happy Monday! Yes, there’s so much going on today, a blog post title cannot summarize it! (I gave it my best try though! lol) Ok, so today is our official brand new release day over at the digital shop. We’ve been adding new products to the website all throughout last week, and now we can finally show you everything at once, and also share project ideas with 6 new digital sets! Plus, today we’re announcing the winners of our latest giveaways AND we have another awesome gift card giveaway to share! (Scroll down for details.)

These are the cards I created for today! Looking at these images my first thought is how much love and joy I felt while I was drawing them! I happen to love hearts… Chunky hearts that is, just like the ones on my stamp sets. I also love donut and candy illustrations, so I think these new digis from the set Sweet Love are lots of fun to color and make cards with!

Designing a Printable Layout with Digital Stamps

For the donut card, I created a template using the Photoshop program. It is sized to fit an A2 card front perfectly and all I needed to do is print the panel, cut and color it, and finally attach it to a white card base. You can create any layout you like with our digital stamps on a photo editing program or even on Microsoft Word… Just insert the images you want to use, copy and paste them as many times as needed to create a pattern or layout, and add your sentiment. This is a great technique for when you need to make many cards at once! You simply can’t go wrong with premade layouts!

sweetlovelayoutonword_gracielliedesign

I colored the donuts with Arteza and Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I colored them using only the markers and right at the very end I used waterbrush once lightly just to blend it all. I also splattered some of the ink from the markers on the background and attached some Unity sequins (which match perfectly), using the new Ultra Bond Adhesive.

Supplies used:

Sweet Sprinkled Donut Unity Rubber Stamp Kit
Samsung Laser Printer
Arteza Real Brush Pens
Kuretake Zig Real Brush Markers
Ultra Bond Adhesive
Unity Sequins

Cutting Digital Paper Backgrounds on your Cricut

For the shaker card, I did something quite fun! I printed one of the patterned papers from the Sweet Love Digital Paper Pack on photo paper using a Brother Inkjet printer, and ran it through my Cricut Explore Air 2 to cut a heart window panel! (Click here to access this project over at Cricut Design Space.)  To make it, I created a 4.5″ square on Design Space, then inserted a 3.5″ heart shape on the center, and finally attached both shapes together, that way the machine cuts both images at once creating a heart window square card panel! I did alter the heart shape to be a little wider, and that way I was able to match the the digital heart lollipop stamp too!

This technique is really fun because you can use shapes from Cricut Design Space to make your own backgrounds on any digital paper pattern. It also makes the process easier and will help you put together shaker cards in no time!

I cut a piece from acetate, using Clear Designer Toner Sheets from Therm O Web, and adhered it to the back of the heart window panel with the GK Designs Adhesive Dot Runner. Next, I added lots of different Unity sequins on the center of a 5″ by 5″ white card base and then mounted the panel using GK Designs Foam Tape.

For the image and sentiment, I sized and printed them using a laser printer and then I colored the heart lollipop using real brush markers! I fussy cut the image and attached it to the card with the new GK Designs Foam Squares. I cut a banner with the printed sentiment and adhered it with GK Designs Adhesive Dot RunnerThis tape works great for the shaker too!
