Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop 2017 and STAMPlorations !

Here are a few of my creations... I have kept the fall theme in all my designs in terms of the colors I picked :) and I have done my favorite water coloring in all of these.
For the above card, I masked and stamped the images in light distress ink and water colored them for a no line coloring effect. Once dried I stamped the sentiment on top.
For this card I followed the same concept and stamped the cup with the flower and water colored it. To give it a more distressed look, I inked the edges with white pigment ink along the borders after the panel was all dried. Finally I stamped the sentiment on top.
For this card, I stamped the images in a grid pattern and water colored those. I then followed the same concept as the previous ones to stamp the sentiment on top.
For my final card, I went a bit creative in my design. where in I made a little fall scene from the coffee spill by a combination of water coloring and stamping.

Here are the products I have used Coffee Happy, Oh, So grateful, Coffeecionado TYPOGRAFIA Coffee,  Rise and Grind, Before Coffee - TYPOGRAFIA Coffeee, Coffee Petites and Vignette - Tree silhouette and Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies. For coloring I have used Distress inks and Gansai Tambi Water colors.


Hope you enjoyed mt creations, check on the STAMPlorations Blog for the new products and the prizes you can win. Thank you for stopping by and leaving me a comment :)

Now let me show you the card and the tag I made :)
I had so much fun. Lately, my love for inking is back and that led me to make the rainbow backgrounds for these. To make these I drew some diagonal lines using a ruler and the masked off and inked the stripes in rainbow colors on both the card panel and the tag. Did some water splatters on top. Next I stamped, fuzzy cut and colored the images and put those together on the base. To finish the card, I stamped the sentiment and added some clear sequins.

Here is a closeup into each of these..

STAMPlorations TYPOGRAFIA MOTIVATE Blog Hop !

Welcome friends! This is a super special post as we begin STAMPlorations TYPOGRFIA MOTIVATE Blog Hop. We are introducing some amazingly awesome Typography Stamps. I mean you are going to love them and when you look at the variety... you would want to have them all. 

I like these stamps specially because they are complete in themselves, allows me to make cards quickly and create some fun backgrounds to go with them :) The quotes in the motivate series are fabulous :) The hop has a few stops, so if you want to win these awesome stamps don't forget to leave a comment at every stop :) Don't forget to go HERE

Prize: 
One commenter will win her choice of 3 Typografia Motivate stamps. The winner will be randomly drawn from all comments left on the STAMP blog and participating designers' blogs.

Commenting closes on Monday, August 28 and Winner will be announced on Tuesday, August 29.

Let me show you the cards I created with these stamps...
As the stamp says rainbow, I had to make a rainbow but instead of going with traditional inking, water coloring etc I used a stencil to make the rainbow, every flower was masked and inked to create the rainbow. The stamp was stamped on top and adhered on a fog card base.

For my second card, I kept it pretty simple by stamping floral design in a colored ink and coloring it in same color for a subtle background. To finish the card I stamped the sentiment and added a few sequins.

These are so much fun and look at the numerous possibilities you have with these :)
I hope you had fun, check the STAMP blog and hop along. Thank you for stopping by and leaving me a comment :)
