Coffee BEE 2 with Colored Pencils

Here I am with another card for the fun Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Hop put on by Coffee Loving Cardmakers.

For this card I used a digital image. The image is called CoffeeBEE2. Unfortunately I did not label it with the company or person who designed it so if anyone knows please let me know.

First of all I sized the image and printed it on Neenah Desert Storm paper. I recently saw a nice card colored with pencils on kraft and it reminded me to get out my pencils since I really like the look. So this is colored with Prismacolor pencils. When I get done coloring I usually go back over the black lines since I like them vibrant.

The sentiment is stamped.

Supplies:

  • CoffeeBEE2 digital stamp
  • The Ton Hug in a Mug stamp set
  • Prismacolor Pencils
  • Versafine Oynx Black Ink

Stamplorations Digital Image A Cup for the Holidays

Howdy! I made this card for the 2019 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. Unfortunately the clock ended early so this did not make it in.

I used a digital image from Stamplorations which I think was a freebie from them which is so nice of them. I love that it is a nice festive Christmas coffee image.

I opened the digital image in Word and sized it for the card. I like using Word if I can since there is a ruler. I like all the things around the cup! I colored everything with Copics. I added a bit of puff embossing powder on the coffee. The snowflakes have some Nuvo Aqua Shimmer on them which doesn’t really show in the photo. I added the snowflakes to the cup using white pigment ink.

The sentiment is from a Papertrey Ink stamp set.

The two patterned papers are from the same paper pad.

There is a layer of fun foam under the die cut mats.

Supplies:

  • Papertrey Ink stamp set – Deck the Halls – sentiment
  • Stamplorations Digital Image – A Cup for the Holidays
  • Freebie in a Crafty Magazine – Winter Wonderland stamp set – snowflakes
  • Nuvo Aqua Shimmer pen
  • Copic pens
  • Hero Arts Unicorn pigment ink
  • Hero Arts Puff embossing powder
  • Spellbinders Curved Rectangles die set

Stamplorations Framed Roses and Coffee Digital Image

Hello again so soon! I have another coffee card that I created for the 2019 Spring | Summer Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop.  I worked with a digital image this time that Stamplorations was so nice to give away. You can check out this image here. It is part of a set called Love/Spring Themed A2 Card Front Digital Images. There are 2 other images in the set. They are also having a sale on the coffee/tea items.

Now for my card…

Love/Spring Digital Stamps Set

I got this image awhile back and I finally got to use it. I enlarged it just a bit before printing on bristol paper. I found out that inkjet printing and Zig Clean Color pens don’t work well together. Printing on bristol ok, coloring with Zigs on bristol ok, together not ok. So I switched over to my Copic markers. They worked just fine.

After coloring everything including the background I added a few things. I put clear orange Nuvo in the middle of some of the flowers which is hard to see. Then on the coffee I added some Hero Arts puff embossing powder to look like a bit of frothy milk. Note the color of the coffee and see that there is milk in it. Ha.

Then I tried several different colors to put behind the image and finally chose this one. The image is raised using a foam sheet cut to size.
