Picket Fence Love of Coffee | Coffee Lovers Blog Hop | Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers

Good morning everyone, it’s the biggest coffee themed blog hop over on Coffee Lover’s Blog and I’m sharing another coffee
inspired card featuring a background coffee stamp by Picket Fence.

Picket Fence Love of Coffee

Using my Misti, I stamped out the large background stamp onto a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock using a tucked away,
way in the back of my ink drawer an old pigment ink that was in the perfect shade of brown. I added clear embossing powder
and heat set it with my heating tool and reached for my Zig Markers to color in the images. Since these are tiny images, I used
a single shade on each image and blended it out using a water brush pen.

Zig Marker Color Combination

031 Cobalt Blue
041 Light Green
021 Light Carmine
025 Pink
027 Dark Pink
230 Pale Rose
082 Purple
072 Beige

Picket Fence Love of Coffee

Once the background panel was completely dry, I used a large stitched rectangle die to cut it down to an A2 sized panel and
finished the card by white heat embossing the sentiment stirp then popping it up on foam squares and adding it across
the center of my panel.

This was an easy-peasy card to make that is full of vibrant color and can be quickly mass-produced if you need to.

Galaxy Rainbow Background | Newton’s Nook Designs Cosmic Newton + Christine’s 500 YT Subscribers Hop

Good morning everyone, I’m participating with a handful of crafty friends celebrating Christine reaching 500 subscribers on YouTube
with a Christine Patterson’s 500 YT Subscribers Hop.

Newton's Nook Designs Cosmic Newton and Mama Elephant Star Grid Die

The “You’re Out of This World” card features Newton’s Nook Cosmic Newton images combined with a Mama Elephant Star Grid
Window Creative Cuts Die, in a rainbow-colored background with Newton floating on by.

To begin this card, I die cut the Star Grid Window from Bristol smooth cardstock and used several shades of Distress Ink to ink
blended the stars in a rainbow pattern. To create some contrast, I die cut the same Star Grid from black cardstock and adhered
it to the rainbow background with foam tape.

I used Copic markers to color in the images and then my ScanNCut to cut them out.

Lawn Fawn Beep Boop Birthday Goodie Bag

Hi crafty friends, I’m sharing a birthday goodie bag I created for any upcoming birthday that might be rolling in through the
summer and replenish my stash of birthday goodies.

Lawn Fawn Beep Boop Birthday and Goodie Bag Die

To create this goodie bag, I had to be a little creative since I did not have a 12 x 12 piece of cardstock I wanted to use. I die cut a
piece of Neenah Solar White 100lb. cardstock using the Goodie Bag die by Lawn Fawn, then I placed my die over the top of a 6 x 6
sheet of patterned paper and die-cut only the front of the panel. I trimmed the Really Rainbow pattern paper to fit over the goodie
bag and adhered it with liquid adhesive.

Lawn Fawn Beep Boop Birthday and Goodie Bag Die

For the images, I used a Beep Boop Birthday, which is retired (sadly) and colored in the images using Copic Markers then cut
them out using my ScanNCut.

Copic Markers Combination

Robots: C7, C5, C3, C1, C0, C00, R22
Pink: R85, R81, RV00
Teal: BG53, BG49
Yellow: Y17

Lawn Fawn Beep Boop Birthday and Goodie Bag Die

Using one of the green pattern papers from the Really Rainbow 6 x 6 paper pad, I die cut two green hills using the Simple Stitched
Hillside Borders Die, then stamped the birthday sentiment on one of the hills while the other sentiment was stamped onto a
piece of black cardstock and white heat embossed.

I added all of the elements onto the bag, using either foam tape or liquid adhesive to finish these bags. I plan to create several bags to
have on hand for any kids’ birthday parties.

Lawn Fawn Beep Boop Birthday

This goodie bag was inspired by the current LawnFawnatics Challenge to create anything but a card, be sure to head over to the LawnFawnatics blog to check out what the design team created for this challenge.

Lemon Shortbread Rainy Days Girl with Umbrella | Lil Patch of Crafty Friends | Design Team Project

Hi everyone and welcome to a new challenge on the Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge Blog. Our exclusive sponsor for this
month is Lemon Shortbread Digi Stamps and Pages with their unique and beautiful collection of digi stamps. For my card today,
I created a monochromatic with one colored element card featuring Rainy Days Girl with Umbrella.

Lemon Shortbread Rainy Days Girl with Umbrella

I was very inspired to create this card based on a painting I saw somewhere in my early teen life. I tried to search for the original
painting and find the painter’s name but all I found was Parisian images in black and white with red umbrella paintings.

To start this card, I printed the digital image at 4 ¼ by 5 ½ onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb. cardstock. I colored the
image in warm grays with a bold and bright red umbrella.

Lemon Shortbread Rainy Days Girl with Umbrella

Copic Color Combination

Skin: W4, W3, W1, W0
Hair: W9, W7, W5, W3
Coat: W9, W7, W5, W3
Undercoat: W2, W1
Boots: W9, W7, W5, W3
Umbrella: R29, R27, R24, R22, R21
Background: W1, W0
Puddles: W5, W3, W1, W0

For the background, I die cut the panel with an A2 sized stitched rectangle die and finished coloring in the background by adding
dots across the background to create some texture.

To finish this card, I stamped out the sentiment with Versamark ink and white heat embossed it onto a piece of black cardstock.
I trimmed the sentiment strip and adhered it using foam tape to the bottom left corner.

For the background, I taped down a piece of Arches Coldpress Watercolor Paper to a wooden board and creating a nighttime
inspired sky using my Koi Watercolor Set. After the panel was dry, I added gold splatters to mimic the stars in the sky using a
shimmery gold watercolor paint.

For the ground, I ink blended a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock with Distress Inks in Vintage Photo and Ground Espresso
then added texture with a dark brown Copic marker and a white gel pen. I brought in one more die cut element from the Palm
