A Colorful Life Design April release

It is time to celebrate as A Colorful Life Design has a new release today! I say YAY, and you are going to love this release too.

Coffee anyone, or would you prefer tea?

I am using Neenah cardstock for my base, and Hammermill cardstock for my top layer. On this card I am using the stencil called "Latte Vibes", with Gathered Twigs Distress Oxide inks. 
To do the inside panel I placed my stencil on a piece of the Hammermill cardstock and clean it off, dragging the ink to the open areas using a baby wipe.

For the oustide sentiment I die cut the "hey" 3 times in gold card and shadowed with a piece of vellum, gluing everything in place using Glitter Ink. On the inside I stencilled using Black Soot ink for the sentiments.
This is an Alcohol ink background with the "Coffee Pot" applied using "Matte Texture Paste". I let the texture paste dry over night so it would be set before I coloured with Copic markers that I keep apart from my good markers for colouring texture paste, and the like. 

I then stencilled in the "Coffee Beans" aloong with the "Coffee O'clock" stencil using a brown Sharpie pen.
For this Thank you card I used the stencil called "Hairpin" along with alcohol inks in Sailboat Blue, Dandelion and Limeade. I also made a piece for the inside, using the same method I did on the "Latte Vibes" card. 

The sentiment stamp is from Pinkfresh and is called "You're the Best", with the coordinating die.
This stencil is "Showered in Love". It is so pretty I think. I used a combination of Copic markers and distress inks to do my colouring, then painted over all but the cup using Nuvo Glitter Gloss. To finish I attached the piece to a light blue card base.

Layered Cups 1 & 2, Big Arrowhead stencils used with Worn Lipstick, Lumberjack Plaid, Festive Berries, Candied Apple and Wilted Violet.

Cut the top panel and attached to the Arrowhead stencil piece, then attached to my Neenah card base. Finished with stamped sentiment in VersaFine Clair ink Nocturne.
This is "Graphic Lace" stencil, so beautiful. I used Mowed Lawn and Rustic Wilderness distress oxide inks for my stenciling. 

Die cut sentiment and coloured the vellum shadow piece with the rustic wilderness, leaving the words in the white cardstock. Added the flower which is coloured using Copic markers along with a few Pinkfresh gems. 
I love this stencil too, which is called Chuy Circles. And I love the little citters I added too which are from Lawn Fawn. The piece of grass behind the foxes is a die by Impression Obession and the foxes are coloured with Copic markers.

To do my stencil work I used Blueprint Sketch, Twisted Citron and Squeezed Lemonade, which just seems to fit this stencil I think.
This is "Coffee Stream" and "mmm Coffee", exactly what I say until I get my cup in the morning. I stenciled using Gathered Twigs again and Black Soot. For accent I used an orange glitter pen, which I also used to add a few dots around the card.

Attached the Kraft card piece to a chocolate card base.
Here I am using Alcohol inks with a vibrant background in Tranquil, Deception and Alcemy. When dry I stenciled on the image using Matte Texture Paste.

 I matted with the green card, and attached the piece to a Neenah card base, then painted over the cup using Nuvo Midas Touch.
Lastly is "Under the Table" how fun this stencil is. I used Pigment Craft Inks in Rosewood and Eucalyptus, and also used the inks for matting the panels.

For a bit of glam I added Glitter Enamel Dots.

I hope you have enjoyed these stencils today. I certainly had fun making these cards, and look forward to making more.
