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

To put the card together, I used several Craftin Desert Diva’s Dies and various paper collections from my stash. I made a process video of how I created this card that I am entering into the Winter’s Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and Craftin’ Desert Diva’s Monthly Mood Board Challenge

Craftin Desert Diva ~ Apple of my Eye Digi Image ~ Copic Colored

Hey everyone,

Finally back in the craft room after what seems like an eternity to make a fall inspired card. Being in the Tampa Bay area of Florida, we evacuated during Hurricane Irma a couple of weeks ago, and it took me a couple more weeks to get back to a “normal” schedule! 
This card is inspired by the Craftin Desert Divas Monthly Social Media Challenge for the month of September.

Craftin Desert Diva Apple of my eye digi stamp colored with Copic Markers and patterned paper handmade card.

I used a Craftin Desert Diva Digi image to create this card and colored it using Copic makers. I also used a piece of patterned paper from Crate Paper’s Pretty Party paper pad and a piece of Bristol smooth card stock with a water color background. I’m slowly finding my craftin’ mojo and hope to get back into the normal swing of things very soon!
Until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!
