Smell the Coffee….

Hello sweet Evelin T. Designs friends. Annette Allen here with you today and I am sharing a card created using Evelin T. Designs: Coffee Loving Critters and Evergreen Foliage stamp sets.

I used a stencil and Ranger oxide inks to create this fun background. You can really use any stencil you like to create a colorful filled background.

I stamped out these lovely leaves on some colorful card-stock. I fussy cut them and added them to my card using foam adhesives to give it a little dimension. Next I stamped this adorable cat drinking coffee and colored with Copic sketch markers. Finishing up with stamping the sentiment and cutting in half so I can add it on both sides of the image.

I added some Copic opaque, just because I love how it highlights the background a bit more.

That is all for today. Thanks for stopping by. Happy Evelin T. Designs stamping.

Coffee Art Trio

Hey you!  It’s Amy here with a card trio that came together super quick.  Here’s a peek at the set:
I spotted THIS sketch and decided I should use some of the paper pads that I recently purchased to make a quick card set.  The main images I used are from the Coffee Art set.  What makes things easier for me is to keep the same overall color palette in all of the cards that I am creating.
It goes without saying that using the same card design makes it super easy too!  Less of a thought process.  I cut 4 panels from one paper pad and mixed and matched the patterns.  This sentiment, Wishing You’re Here,  is from the Sneaky Kitties set.  With our state in Stay Home mode until at least May 4th, I’ll be sending this one to my girl.  I miss her and she loves plants and coffee.
This card with the green foliage strip has a sentiment from the same set as the coffee cup, Coffee Art.
In an effort to make my designs postal friendly, there is no foam adhesive.  Oh boy, that’s a challenge for me.  Those ‘enamel dots’ are actually called ‘puffy dots’ and are squishy as opposed to the traditional enamel dots.
This is my final design.  I’m a sucker for gingham.  This sentiment is from the Evergreen Foliage set.
That’s it for me!  Stay Safe!

Thank you for being you

Hey Hello! 
It’s Amy here sharing a quick card set that I whipped up especially for today.  It features the beautiful Evergreen Foliage set:

I knew I wanted to color up the Evergreen Foliage set and decided to show a super simple design with minimal coloring.

I love coloring but sometimes you just want to design a quick card.  The fastest way for me to do multiple designs is to keep the overall look the same but change the color.  Since the design is so clean + crisp, I decided to add a dry embossed background.

I was going to change out the Foliage image but decided since the one was already set up in my Mini MISTI I kept all the stamps the same.

It was super stress free putting this set together.  These are some of my holiday thank you’s.  I’m super tardy sending them out but I love the design 🙂

I hope you have an amazing week!

Two Simple Cards…

Well happy hello Evelin T. Designs friends…. Annette Allen here with you today and I am sharing two cards created using Evergreen Foliage and Alpha Blocks.

This first card was created using Evergreen Foliage. I created a simple watercolor background and stamped these pretty images and sentiment on the background after it dried completely. I added a bit of white opaque to the little leaves. I wanted them to really shine on the card. 

Next up I created a card using Alpha Blocks. I love this fun set because you can create any greeting, sentiment that you want. I first used a misc. stencil and Ranger Oxide inks to create a colorful background. I added some NUVO Blue Topaz Glimmer Paste on top of the stenciled background. 

I stamped all the letters to create HAVE A BEAUTIFUL DAY and cut with my Brother Scan n Cut machine. Next I added some foam adhesives to the back to give each letter some dimension.   

Two simple cards and totally fun to create.  

Thanks for stopping by. Have a blessed day!

Evergreen Foliage Card Trio

Hello! Heather Hoffman here this morning to share a trio of cards featuring the beautiful Evergreen Foliage paired with some fun Distress Ink blending! I basically wanted to recreate one of the designs I made for the release last month, and try some different color combos!

This design is perfect for one layer cards that are easy to mail – always nice to have in your stash! I masked off the top and bottom of each card, and used two different colors of distress ink for each one.

I tried to use colors that would blend fun in the center to almost make it look like I had used 3 colors instead of two.

I also added a good splatter of Perfect Pearls mixed with water for some texture and shine before removing the mask. This next one I didn’t have a great seal on my mask, so a bit of the color leaked under on the bottom, but I don’t think it looks to bad anyway, so I didn’t bother redoing it.

Once I removed the mask and allowed them to dry a bit, I lined up all the fun images from Evergreen Foliage in a row using my MISTI to assembly line stamp each of them.

I finished off with a mix of sentiments – all from the same Evergreen Foliage stamp set – LOVE how there are a great variety of sentiments in this stamp set as well!

  Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!!!

Evergreen Foliage and Alpha Blocks

Hello Evelin T Design Fans!  It’s Amy with my first design post.  I’m so excited to show you what I made especially for today!  I’m featuring the Evergreen Foliage and Alpha Blocks sets.

My card front consists of 5 layers.  I love to incorporate layers for added interest without the additional bulk of foam adhesive.  Today’s card also includes cork layers.

I’ve been paying more attention to the interior of my cards.  I added an additional greeting.  Don’t you just love the Alpha Blocks set?  The options are endless!

I’m pretty sure that everyone loves Happy Mail!  I kept my overall color palette the same.     What are some of your favorite color combos?  I’d love to hear from you!

Sneaky Kitties and Evergreen Foliage

Welcome everyone… Annette Allen here with you today to share my first design team post on the new Evelin T. Designs blog. I am so excited to be a part of Evelin’s new adventure. Today I created two cards using Sneaky Kitties and Evergreen Foliage stamp set.   

First up are those cute little Sneaky Kitties

I stamped the image on the card base and again on a separate piece of card-stock. I took the seconded stamped image and colored it up with Copic Sketch makers. I die cut part of the image and lined it up on my card base using some foam adhesives to give it some dimension. 

I had some misc scraps of designer paper and cut them into strips to highlight the colors I colored the image with. Finishing up with stamping the sentiment on some kraft card-stock, trimmed and adhered to card with foam tape.

This second card I created using the newly released Evergreen Foliage stamp set. 

I created a stamped background by stamping the same image multiple times. Colored with Copic Sketch markers. Finishing up with stamping this pretty sentiment on designer paper and die cutting this sweet tag. I added some burlap string and tied a bow. The tag is adhered using foam tape to give it some dimension.  

Thanks for stopping by today.
