CAS-ual Fridays Stamps & Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!!

Image may contain: text

HELLO!! 

I'm here today to showcase the NEW CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Coffee Chipboard!! These FUN Elements are PERFECT for all sorts of uses!! Here's a look at the NEW Coffee Chipboard!! 
Aren't they FUN!! I'm also joining in the FUN for the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!! Here's what I've created for today using them!!
I Started by Mixing together some Therm O Web Metallix Gel in Aged Copper and some Gina K Designs Glitz Glitter Gel in Gold on a Paper Plate!! 
Here's a look at what the Gel looks like once its mixed together!! 
Then I Sprayed the backside of my By the Beans Stencil with some Pixie Spray and adhered it to my Cardstock!! I then took my Stencil Pal and applied a Thin Layer of the Gel Mixture over my Cardstock!! I didn't want to waste any of the Mixture so I applies the leftover to another piece of Cardstock using the same method!! I was able to get 2 Stenciled Card Panels out of the Mixture I created!! I set the Panels aside to Dry while I worked on the rest of my Card Elements!! 
Once the Stenciled Panel was Dry, I added some Black Soot Distress Paint Splatters foe some extra Texture and Contrast!! I Die Cut a Circle for the Focal Element and Inked in with some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink!! Then I Die Cut the Coffee Die 6 Times from some White Cardstock!! I adhered them all together using some Therm O Web Ultra Bond Adhesive and then I Inked the edges of the Coffee Cup with some Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide Ink!! I adhered all of the Inside pieces of the Coffee Cup together minus 2 of them and Inked it with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink!! I added some Nuvo Shimmer Pen on top of the Vintage Photo Distress Ink and then I added some Nuvo Drops in Morning Dew over the Top to look like the Coffee inside of my Coffee Cup!! I LOVE the way it looks!!
I wanted a Raedunn inspired Coffee Cup so I painted the NEW Coffee Chipboard piece using some Black Soot Distress Paint and I also added some Barn Red Distress Paint to several of the Heart Pieces in the some Set!! Once they were Dry I adhered the Coffee Word to the front of my Coffee Cup Die and then I added some Nuvo Shimmer Pen on top of the Painted Hears and coated them with some Nuvo Drops in Morning Dew for a FUN Sparkly and Shiny finish!! I adhered the Hearts to my Card Panel using some Zots Bling Dots and I adhered the Coffee Cup Panel with some Therm O Web Foam Squares to my Card Panel!!
Then I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment from the Stay Strong Stamp Set!! During these times I thought this was a PERFECT sentiment to use and to send to a Coffee Friend that I haven't been able to see in awhile to let her know that I MISS our Coffee Dates and Conversation!! 
So there you have it my 1st Coffee Card for the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!! I hope you'll join in on the FUN for LOTS of chances to WIN!! Plus there's a SALE going on at the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Store!!

You Make Me Smile Card by Larissa Heskett for Newton's Nook Designs using Newton's Flower Garden, Speech Bubbles Die, Fence Die, Land Borders Die, Frames & Flags Die #newtonsnook #newtonsnookdesigns #newtonsflowergarden
I wanted to create a SWEET Scene for my Card today!! I Started by Stamping and Embossing the Images from the NEW "Newton's Flower Garden" Stamp Set!! I Stamped in Versa Fine Black Onyx Ink and Embossed with WoW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder!! Then I used Copic Markers to color my Images!! (Newton: E40, E43, E47 & E49 Cheek and Inside of Ears: R00  Flowers: Y11, Y15 & YR23  RV00, RV02 & RV06  Greenery: YG61, YG63 & BG18   Butterflies: V000, V01 V06 & V09  Y11, Y15 & YR23   RV00, RV02, RV06   Y11, Y15 & YR23) I used the NEW coordinating Newton's Flower Garden Dies to Die Cut the Images out and then I added some White Gel Highlights and some Black Gel Pen Details to the Nose and the Butterfly Bodies to make them POP!! For my Scene I Started by Creating my Sky!! I used Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Inks to blend my Sky trying to keep the darker color at the bottom of the Sky!! Water Droplets were added for some Texture!! Then I Die Cut 3 of the Speech Bubble Dies to use for my Clouds!! I wanted to stamp and Emboss the Sentiment inside so that's the reason I went with the Large Clouds!! I added some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to the edges of the Clouds to help them Blend in rather that be bold!!

 I Die Cut the Fence Die from some Kraft Cardstock and Inked it using some Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink and then I Die Cut another Fence from some Grey Cardstock and layered it behind for a Shadow!! I LOVE this look, and then I added 2 Borders of Grass Die Cut using the Land Borders Die Set!! I Die Cut some Green Cardstock and then Inked with Lucky Clover and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Inks to add some Dimension and Shadows!! I adhered the Entire Card Scene together and then added a BOLD Black Scalloped Frame Die Cut from the Frames and Flags Die!! I tried several Colors, but I LOVED the way that the Black Frame made the Scene POP!! Almost like in a Children's Story Book!! I added some Glitter Nuvo Drops to the center of the Flowers and my Card was done!!
