Sending A Hug In A Mug

Hello everyone!
I am so happy to be on Craftin Desert Divas Blog today.  Inviting you all to join us for our CDD August Social Media Mood Board Challenge.

Here is what I made for you



And here is August Mood Board Inspiration Photo



I am encouraging you to join us at CDD Facebook Gallery.. Click here 
There are prizes to be won.


I began by stamping and heat embossing the adorable mushroom coffee shop as well as the coffee troll from Coffee Trolls stamp onto some Canson Mixed Media paper.  I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers as well as Koi Coloring Brush Pens as my watercoloring mediums.  They're quite easy to handle especially when you heat embossed the images.

I freehand drawn the path using brown and gray colors and used green for my hills.


Before I did my sky I stamped and also heat embossed the sentiment on top left corner.  I then used Fancy Frame dies to cut my panel for small scallop decorative edges.  


To finishe it off I dropped Nuvo Jewel Drop - Sea Breeze here and there.  I can't stop using them :) as well as Glossy Accent on the mushroom and the coffee mug.  And it's done!

I do hope you like it and Wishing you all a Wonderful day!

Hugs,
Jan

Another Year Just Flew By - Birds Of A Feather

Hello there dear friends..

Today is Day 2 of Craftin Desert Divas August Release.  It's a special day because it's also my birthday :) and one of my crafty friend birthday as well. So...

My card/project today featuring Birds Of A Feather stamp.  I made this espcially for my sweet crafty friend who is sharing the same bithday as me.  Lisa R Bzibziak... this is on the way to you.  Have a Wonderful Birthday!

Here is what I made for her

I love how it turned out.  There are so many birds and nature elements in this Birds Of A Feather stamp set.   This Box dies is amazing and it's so easy to put all together and together with Outdoor Landscape 2 dies the sky is the limit.  I used the birch trees as well as the grass border dies from Outdoor Landscape 2 dies to decorate the outside panels as well as to attach the branches for the birds to stand on.


I colored all the images with copic markers then I couldn't find any pattern paper that I like to match my card theme for the 4 flaps so I decided to do my DIY pattern paper.


This is how it looked like after I cut the panel with one of the dies that included in the Box dies.  I love how it turned out.

Here is the closer look at all the images again


I hope you enjoy all my projects for Craftin Desert Divas August Release and Thank you so very much for taking take to take a look.  Have a Beautiful day!

Hugs
Jan

Ok I think I covered the esential infomation and here are the fun part :)  I made a couple of projects and I'll share with you 2 cards today.

Project 1 :  Twinkle Toes stamp and 

It's impossible for me not to do any project with this adorable piggie from Twinkle Toes stamp.  It's a love at first sight *lol*   Pig loves mud we all know that so I decided to make her the most happy pig on earth to dance in her tutu and played in the mud puddle :) 


I took my time to color her in with Faber Castell Polychromos colorpencils.  Building up layers upon layers until I was happy with it.  I used the pond image from Build A Scene 2 stamp to create the mud puddle as well as the buttlefly and dragon fly are also from Build A Scene 2 stamp.

I cut the frame from white card stock using Inside Scalloped Rectangle dies and colored it with blue/green copic markers then used no. 0 colorless blender to make the dots effect.  I then dropped Nuvo Crystal Drop Bubblegum Blush to accent my card.

Project 2 : Get Wild stamp

I made this one layer card using the adorable gorilla and the little bird images from Get Wild stamp.  I stamped them at the middle of my panel and began to create my scene.  I hand drawn the trees and leaves and I colored all the images and the whole scene with Faber Castell Polychromos colorpencils as well.


I also used the Crazy Stitched Frame dies to give decorative edges on my panel and then dropped Nuvo Crystal Drop Caribbean Ocean here and there.

I hope you like both of them and I have one more box card to share with you tomorrow featuring Birds Of A Feather stamp.  See you soon & Thank you.

Hugs,
Jan

Aloha and Wet Feet Mini stamps

Hi there folks....

Aloha and Wet Feet mini stamp.

---> The 2 new freebies will not be available for purchase until sometime after 8/20/17.<---

Here is what I made for Aloha mini stamp

I created this one layer card scene using the adorable Aloha Troll from Aloha mini stamp together with the waterfall rock images from Build A Scene 2 stamp. 

Here is how I planned and prepared my card design 

I colored all the images including the background scene with copic markers. :) I know I refilled my blue and green markers along the way. *lol*


Here are the closer look

I used Crazy Stitched Frame dies to create my decorative edge and also accent my card with Novo Jewel Drop Pale Periwinkle.

Here is the card that I made with Wet Feet mini stamp
This card came together quite easily I just stamped the adorable flamingo from Wet Feet mini stamp toward the bottom left of my card panel.  


I torn the printer paper at slightly curve shaped and used it as a mask to do ink blending for the ocean.  I used Distress Oxide Inks in broken china and cracked pistachio.  For the sand and the flamigo itself I colored with copic markers.  For the sky, I used Distress Oxide Inks in spiced marmalade and worn lipstick with ink dusters to get the rough texture for the sky.

Here is the closer look 

I used white gel pen to give some wave texture where the sand meet the sea.  I then cut my panel with Crazy Stitched Frame dies and dropped Nuvo Crystal Drop Morning Dew here and there.

I  hope you like both of them and Thank you so much for stick with me thru out the release days.  Appreciate it!  Have a wonderful day

Hugs,
Jan
