Hi everyone! It’s National Coffee Day and I for one am super excited! Today I get to hop along with the Coffee Lover’s Blog & Facebook Group, Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps and so many other wonderful companies. There are going to be a ton of prizes, so be sure to head over to the Coffee Lover’s Blog and hop along with everyone!
I LOVE COFFEE, so getting to design with some fabulous coffee themed stamps is so fun for me! Today’s video tutorial is going to be over on Instagram, and if you haven’t already, be sure to head over there and follow me. Instagram TV is where I am starting to put some “one off” card videos. The majority of the time there is no voiceover, only written instructions to follow and only one simple card in each video. I am loving making these videos for cards I wouldn’t normally make or have time for, because I don’t have a specific technique to share and just don’t have all that time to get voiceovers done while my house is quiet! So if you don’t want to miss any videos, head over and give me a follow!
You can watch today’s video tutorial below!
Some of the supplies used in the video above were sent to me for free for design purposes. I only ever design for companies I can stand behind 100%. To see who I currently or have previously designed for head HERE.
One of my favorite ways to create cards is to create my own backgrounds, cut them and add a sentiment. Super easy and so many different ways to customize this method. Today is one of those days I’m doing exactly this!
I started by ink blending an A2 sized white cardstock panel. Catherine Pooler inks blend so well, so I used my Amazon Make Up Blending Brushes, the Skylight ink pad, and Sugared Lavendar to ink blend a quick panel. And if you didn’t know Catherine Pooler inks react with water, so I sprinkled a bit of water onto the panel and let it sit. After blotting up the remainder of the water you are left with some fun “bleached” spots!
After letting the panel dry for a minute, I started stamping over the ink blending with the Coffee Stain Stamp from Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps with Icing on the Cake ink. I did use my MISTI so I could really darken up the stamped image by triple stamping it. **Remember Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps are cling mounted rubber stamps, so take out the foam mouse pad in your MISTI!
Ok, now the fun part! After I ink blended and stamped the panel, I started cutting it up! This can be intimidating, but remember, it’s just paper and anything can be salvagable! To be honest, I messed mine up, but I still found a way to make it work and still be able to add my “It’s Bean Awhile” sentiment!
