Hello my crafty friend! Today, I’m sharing something a little different. My friend Lisa Golzbein, from Oh So Cute by Lisa, invited me on a coffee date. It’s not your typical coffee date. You see she’s on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers design team and instead of actually meeting for coffee, we’re both making cards using the same stamp set. This is the CLC version of a coffee date (which is handy, since we live on opposite sides of the country).
As you can see, we both started with the Caffeinated Rabbit stamp set and as it turns out, we both ended up using sentiments from the same Perfectly Blended stamp set too. Both are from The Rabbit Hole Designs.
For my card, I stamped the rabbit with Fadeout Ink and colored my very first no-line image. If you haven’t tried it before, it’s a lot of fun! The idea is to stamp your image in a soft color (like Fadeout ink) and then color your image without the normal black lines. I used a combination of Arteza Real Brush markers and Colored Pencils to color my rabbit. Notice that I outlined some areas with black pencil to add more depth and dimension. No-line coloring doesn’t mean you can’t have any black lines, it just means you choose when and where to add them. To give the rabbit some shimmer, I painted Liquid Pixie Dust onto the eyelid and the coffee mug. Then I fussy cut the image with my ScanNCut and added Diamond Glaze to the eyeball and mug.
For the rest of the card, I watercolored a panel with Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide ink, fading it out toward the top. I die cut floral pieces with dies from Tim Holtz, Lynda Kanase, and MFT. I colored those with my real brush markers and added details with colored pencils and a white gel pen. I glued the watercolor panel onto a kraft card base and layered the floral pieces on. I popped the rabbit on with foam tape, then layered my die cut sentiment on top of the rabbit with more foam tape.
To see how Lisa made her card, head on over to her blog. You’ll also find lots of other gorgeous cards created by Lisa. She has a great sense of style and incorporates bright, beautiful colors in her designs. I’m so happy she invited me on today’s coffee date, and I’m hoping to actually meet up with her when I’m in her neck of the woods in December. You can also find us on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog today too!
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope we’ve inspired you to pull out your stamps and create something fun! Or at least pour yourself a cup of coffee and look at pretty pictures on the internet 😉
