Spring + Summer 2018 Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop | Craftin’ Desert Diva Cactus Coffee | Copic markers

Hello everyone,

I have one last card that I made for the Spring+Summer 2018 Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop featuring a Craftin’ Desert Diva Digi Stamp of this adorable cactus with a coffee cut!

Craftin Desert Diva Cactus Coffee Digital stamp Copic colored and patterned paper Coffee card.

I printed my image onto Neenah Solar white 80lb. cardstock with a laser printer and colored my images using Copic markers.

Color combination I used:

Cactus: YG07, YG05, YG03 and YG01
Flower and cup: Y35 and Y32
Pot: RV34, RV11 and RV10

Craftin Desert Diva Cactus Coffee Digital stamp Copic colored and patterned paper Coffee card.

I used two patterned papers from two different collections for the base of the card and rectangle for the cactus to sit on.

I decided to create my own sentiment based on the discussion I had with my kids earlier about needs vs. wants. Any true coffee drinker knows that COFFEE is a NEED!

I kept this card pretty simple because of the busyness of the patterned paper and of course the star of the card, the little adorable cactus.

 

That’s all for me today, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

P.S. I edit all my projects using Pic Monkey, which allows me to crop my images, add effects, adjust exposures, sharpen colors, minor touch up and add my watermark. Click here for more information

Spring + Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop | Sweet Stamp Shop Mugging | Copic Coloring

Hello everyone,

Today I’m playing along with the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog hop! One of the biggest blog hops and it’s all related to COFFEE!

Sweet Stamp Shop Mugging stamp colored with Copic markers and patterned paper sketch background handmade card.

For my second card and second entry, I used a stamp from Sweet Stamp Shop of a coffee cup and the sentiment that it absolutely 100% true!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I stamped my image onto white smooth cardstock using Memento Tuxedo dye ink and Copic colored the cup. I also decided that my cup is full and drew in the line to represent coffee.

Copic color combination

Cup RV69, RV66 and RV63
Coffee E27 and E25
Ground C3, C1 and 0

Once the coloring was done, it was time to work on the rest of the card. I wanted this card to have a very summery look so I picked a few colors and patterns that to me represents a summer feel.

I dug through my notebook of card sketches for inspiration and decided on this particular one for no other reason than it appealed to me at the time.  To complete the card, I added just a few enamel dots on the background for interest.

All the information on how to participate is linked above and here!

Spring + Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop | La-La Land Crafts Mollie with Coffee | Copic Coloring

Hello everyone and welcome to the biggest blog hop featuring the coffee theme! Every season this hop seems to get bigger and better and I hope to create several projects this time.

LaLa-Land Crafts Mollie with Coffee stamp set colored with Copic Markers and patterned paper backgrounds handmade card.

For my coffee inspired card, I am using the LaLaLand Crafts Mollie with Coffee stamp which I’ve stamped onto Neenah Solar White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Dye Ink and Copic colored it.

Color combination I used

Skin: E000, E04, E11, E21, E00 and R20
Hair: E29, E25, E23 and E21
Shirt and Skirt: YG09, YG07 and YG05
Undershirt, boots and headband: RV66 and RV63
Coffee cup: C3, C1, 0 and RV63

LaLa-Land Crafts Mollie with Coffee stamp set colored with Copic Markers and patterned paper backgrounds handmade card.

Because the image is fairly large and takes up most of the space on the card front, I wanted to keep the back panels simple but very spring focused.

I chose the two patterned papers that complemented each other and did not take away from the focal image of the character.

I’ve created a process video of this card featuring the Copic coloring and combinations I used.
