It is THURSDAY which means it is time for a card challenge! This challenge is all about Coffee Cards! To inspire you to enter, we have Jessica today to share a fabulous project, let's take a look!


Hello Ai fans!

Welcome back to a new challenge! This time we are making coffee cards, which is one of my favorite themes to make for cards. I'm one of those that do require some caffeine in the morning! Today I'm using the Valentine's Bear set to make a cute watercolor coffee Anniversary card. Card process VIDEO below. 


To start I used Versafine Clair Nocturne ink to stamp the bear holding the heart banner. I also stamped the paw and heart on to a Post-it Note to use a mask. That way when I stamped the bear in the cup, the paw from the banner bear is positioned in front. Then, I heat set the black ink with a heat gun. The Versafine Clair is a pigment ink so it does take some time to dry unless you heat set it. But it is great for water coloring. 



For the coloring I used the Koi Pocket Sketch 24 pan set. The colors I used are listed below. I decided on a pink, blue, green and gold color scheme to go along with the brown bears. For the gold accents I used the Kuretake Starry colors watercolor set, specifically the yellow gold. I add this shimmer paint to the handle and hearts on the cup and also to the lower half of the banner hearts. I love adding small details like that. 


I thought my coloring could use a little more depth. One of the things I like to do for that is add some coloring using Prismacolor Pencils. This just darkens those shadow areas more. 



I did some die cutting with the largest Circle Double Stitch die around the bears, then used the smallest Rectangle Double Stitch die, to die cut a piece of Doll Pink card stock. This is what the sentiment will be heat embossed on to. For that I used "Wishing you a Latte Love" stamp and white embossing powder. 


I also found a scrap piece of Island Blue to use on the left side, this color matched the blue on the bear's shirt and the plate of tea cup pretty well. I also created a background using the same Yellow Gold paint from the Starry Colors set. I painted a half circle for the bears to sit on and also added some gold splatter too. 


Once it was all dry I use my ATG to adhere everything together. As a final step, for the front, I scattered some gold sequins on the right side with the help of tweezers and Multi Medium Matte glue. I keep the inside simple by stamping the "Happy Anniversary" sentiment from the Love Birds set with Nocturne ink, and the banner bear with a light gray ink. I thought the inside needed some pink so I took the same colored pencil as I used on the shading before and lightly colored in the hearts. 


I love how the gold watercolor flashes in the light.

I don't have any local stores to purchase Art Impressions stamps so have to order online. Two of my favorites are Scrapbook.com and 123Stitch.com when stamp shopping. When boxes arrive from them, then that is HAPPY mail. ;)
Thank you for wonderful giveaway!!!

Michelle D said...

Thanks for the chance to win! My favorite retailer is Paper Anthology in Kenvil, NJ. Elisabeth carries most of the Art Impressions line in her store. That’s my go to place for Art Impressions stamps!

Pamela Duncan said...

So excited to have a chance to WIN AI stamps. Any hope of a craft store is over an hour away and 2 aisles maybe is always so disappointing. Thank goodness for 123stitch! I'd love to Bible Journal, but watercoloring has never peaked my interest. I hope to see it differently through your mailings and youtube. You are an amazing instructor the two times I've enjoyed your classes at Scrapbook Expo in Duluth GA several years ago. My favorites are your humorous stamps and the ability to mix them up. Thank you for sharing your God given talent with us. What a special blessing you have!

Unknown said...

I am ready to win some AI stamps. I love them and there is really no where to get them around here except the expos.

Julie LB said...

Art Impressions stamps and products always allow my creative side to come through. They always make me smile and in turn the cards I give to others make them grin and feel good about receiving a one of a kind tribute to them. Thank you for providing a chance to 'win' some new products that will continue to help me create heartfelt messages.

Rhonda Jo said...

I have purchased several sets of Art Impression stamps and the watercoloring I am producing is amazing my friends and family. I am watercolor stamping when I should be cleaning! I look forward to seeing the Christmas sets and make Christmas cards for family and friends. I believe they would be a beautiful gift! Thank you for an opportunity to win!

Inspiredbylife said...

I love AI stamps! I’ve purchased them from Michael’s a, Joann’s and straight from the AI website! Love the new coffee card challenge!

My goodness, what a fantastic Giveaway! My favorite store would be a toss-up between Simon Says Stamp and Scrapbook.com. Both fantastic stores and have such a great selection of product. But what I'm really thrilled about, was I used your "Dealer Locator" button and found five stores within 100 miles of me - now I have to go visit them all! So excited!

jdarrell said...

Micheals is where I purchase AI stamps.

Shine said...

Giveaways are always an exciting chance to add more fun to my life! I usually purchase my AI stamps from the AI website. I am very rural so I do most of my shopping online. I love browsing through all the beautiful stamps and learning how to use them to make incredible cards! Fun, Fun, Fun!

BernerMom said...

I buy your stamps from Simon says stamps and directly off your website. I never see them in local stores

Maria Pane said...

These stamps are amazing. I’ll be at your next show in NJ taking a class. Can’t wait.

Renita S said...

I purchase online from AI and from the Duluth expo. We don't have a big selection at my local Michael's store. I love the products.

Maria Pane said...

My favorite place to buy AI Is either Michaels craft store or preferably at the trade and craft shows.

Vicki M. said...

My favorite online SB store is Scrapbook.com since it is local to me and I don't have to pay for shipping, just drive over and pick up my order! I love AI stamps and usually buy them directly from you at the Rubber Stamp shows and SB Expos when you come to Mesa, AZ.

bertay said...

How exciting!
I've been buying from the Ai website.
My fave local craft store was Pat Catans. Just before I discovered Ai watercolor stamps they were bought out by Michaels and we are waiting for it to re-open as a Michaels.

Ruth Siegel said...

I am so excited to see all your new stamps. I will be seeing you at the Edison show. The best on line would be Simon Says stamps. Michaels has some of your stamps but never has the watercolor ones. Love your stamps and videos. Would so love to win. See you in Edison.

How exciting to have a chance to win such a fabulous prize. I LOVE Art Impressions and probably have more than any other stamp company.
I usually buy things direct from the you all, but I sometimes use www.ellenhutson.com as well.

I hope to win!!!

Claudia Henderson said...

Sorry, typo in the first try to comment ..... I can’t wait to see the new releases and thank you for such a great chance to win. Since we don’t have any scrapbook stores close by anymore (beside Michaels or Joann’s and they don’t carry hardly any of your stamps if even) I usually order mine directly from your website. Your customer service by the way is excellent. You have a great team, My second stop for buying your stamps is the MegaMeet Scrapbook Show in Novi,Mi every May. Love to see you there. Greetings to Phil who is always so nice and kind.

Mary Holshouser said...

My favorite craft store is
Scrapbook Factory in Fairview Heights, IL.

the stamps reflect me so well - love
those stamps. thanks

Suna Stirk said...

Really great release this time! I hope to see the new stuff here in Auckland New Zealand soon.

Crafty_ma_am said...

What an awesome opportunity. I've been loving AI stamps, especially the interactive ones; i.e. "Jingle All the Way" reindeer, "If you can't tone it, tan it" Lady, "Twist Ties" flamingos; "Three Fold" mountain scene; and "Jingle Bell Rock" Santa, all of which I have and have made cards. Would love to be able to win a few to add to this collection.

TenSGal said...

Goodness! Fabulous giveaway! Loving the sneak peeks and LOVE AI!!! I am a lazy shopper so I usually order my AI things online!

Linda Anderson said...

My favorite craft store (which is also our only craft store!) is SPREE. They have a lot of great items and the staff is amazing. If they don't have it, they will try to get for you...can't ask for more than that. Thanks for the opportunity to win these wonderful items!

LIZARD said...

Just moved to Northern VA, and I have not found a local crafty store yet but I am looking forward to finding one that carries the AI stamps!
I have been enjoying the Bible tutorials and hope to get started once I finish unpacking our household goods and the kids head back to school!
It is great that you are giving us caffeine addicted folks some new fun stamps and a chance to win the new release. You had a stamp that came out last fall of ladies drinking coffee and I wanted to buy it but missed my chance. It reminded me of my coffee club group of gals!
Keep up the good work and I hope you will come back to the East coast with another show soon! Maybe in DC or VA!!!!

Nancy said...

I love all your products, and am starting bible journaling. Thank you for the opportunity to win the new releases--I will not be able to afford to buy more than one or two!

JeanneLee said...

Wow,amazing giveaway! I have loved stamping with your images and wherever I can find your stamps I buy...Scrapbook.com, Simon says stamps, Joanns.

Thanks for the chance to win this great release. Love AI. Its the high light when I get to see your products in person at the expos and craft events I go too. Such fun stamps and sentiments.

Cindy Hoffman said...

Only craft store near me is Hobby Lobby and they carry very little AI, only two or three stamp sets. So I usually by them online directly from AI. This is a fantastic opportunity.Good luck to all.

Liz Robertson said...

Would love to win. Love your product. Thanks for the chance to win.

Danielle Dietz said...

The bears are adorable on this card! Thank you so much for all the inspiration. Love, love, love AI. :)

Amy said...

Judy said...

My favorite craft store is Hobby Lobby. My go-to online craft store is Simon Says Stamp because of their extensive selection.

Pat Blankenship said...

My favorite stamp store is Scrapbook.com. They carry Art Impressions stamps, which is my favorite stamp designer. There is no stamp store anywhere near me so I depend on online ordering. Looking forward to the new releases.

Karla H. said...

I am fortunate to have 2 local stores that carry your products. The Paper Forest in Washington, Il and Pearl Street Stamping in Tremont, Il. If they don’t stock what I want, they both are great about ordering in what I want. I miss our watercolor instructor at the Paper Forest now that she moved away. Come to Illinois and visit us soon.

Jean said...

My favorite store is Scrapbook.com. We do not have anything local any more. Such darling stamps!

Unknown said...

My favorite store is Blitsy.com, but I do look forward to the Stamp and Scrapbook Expo for the full line of your products plus your online site.

Jes said...

Please enter me in the contest-thank you! Loved your booth at the Lancaster CK expo!

Kelcey said...

I love to go to any local stamp or scrapbook store but I was introduced to your stamps at Scrapbook Creations in SC at a retreat I went to...I am waiting for an order from them of your stamps now!

Deb said...

We don't have a local craft store, so I'll have to go with who I follow closely online, which would be you guys and Gina K Designs!! Thanks for the chance to win your new releases especially the new watercolor ones. I'm so behind on your new watercolor stuff, I've been dying to get some...just finding it difficult to buy to much in the way of new craft supplies because of to many repairs around here in the last year. I am thankful for what I have though!!!

Laurie B. said...

First, thank you for the opportunity to win this prize package. I shop a lot of different online stores, such as Simon Says Stamp, Blitsy, Michael's, Paper Wishes, The Stamps of Life, Spellbinders, Scrapbook.com, etc. If I had to pick my favorite it would be two - Scrapbook.com because they carry several brands, include AI, and The Stamps of Life.

Dena Keys said...

My favorite online store (other than yours, of course) is Simon Says Stamp. Hobby Lobby is nearest me, so that is my other favorite. I love all your stamps and products and I’m so excited for even the smallest chance to win your new releases!

Golda said...

Don't have just one favorite store. There is a local shop called Scraps of Love that is definitely fun to shop at.

Daisychick said...

I’ve been an Art Impressions fan since the mid 90’s when I discovered the little retail store you had back then in Keizer. My favorite art store is the Runaway Art studio in Salem, OR. Christy is so much fun and she offers such a wide selection of products, including the Art Impressions line.

Sharon Roselli said...

wonderful new release!I can hardly wait to order from it! Scrapbook.com would be my favorite online store because they have lots to choose from. Simon says stamp is good but they runs out of stock so fast and it takes a awhile to receive the product.

Robyn A said...

There aren't any local stores that carry your wonderful watercolor stamps :( I order from Scrapbook.com mostly. I would love to win even one of the new line! I've been watching Watercolor Wednesday videos and took the class with Kate in Orlando in April. Still learning and having fun with it! Thanks for the chance!

Debbie Rumpza said...

I would LOVE to win more AI! I LOVE the artwork and hilarity of your designs. My favorite craft store is probably ScrapbookPal, but locally I visit Hobby Lobby frequently. I also love shopping at Scrapbook.com and Simon Says Stamp.

I have taken several SO watercolor classes and loved everyone of them. Thank you for doing this giveaway good luck everyone.

I really love AI stamps and have for many years! I love the Girlfriend stamps the best. One day i hope to do a watercolor card but I'm a bit intimidated by it. Unfortunately there aren't any LSS's in my area anymore but i really love Simon Says Stamp and Amazon for purchasing my goodies. What a great giveaway, fingers crossed!

I recently moved to a different state and I am sad that there are no locally owned stamp/scrap stores here. When I lived in Michigan I loved to go to Scrappy Chic in Livonia. It was such a great store and I miss it. Now I shop on-line at several sites including Simon Says Stamp, Scrapbook.com, Blitsy, Zulily, or directly from the company websites. I am always looking for a good deal. Thanks for a chance to win the whole new collection!!!

I took a stamp watercolor class and fell in love with Bonnie and how easy it is to make beautiful pieces. Thank you for this opportunity to win your new designs. Have an awesome crafty day!

Unknown said...

awesome stamps! I love all the watercolor items. Just started and am loving that it takes a small amount of time to create something so pretty. Thanks to Scrapp N Savvy that setup the first class! Cant wait to get my hands on the new product.

Hi ! Thanks for the chance to win such a Great Prize. I buy alot of AI stamps from Amazon or the AI website. I am addicted to Bonnie's water coloring videos and stamps. Have a Super Day !

I don’t really have a favorite craft store or site- I like them all! BUT my favorite place to buy AI stamps is at the Advemtures in Stamping show in Akron, OH every April! I love to see all the sets displayed, and I especially love getting to chat with Bonnie and Phil (and Georgia this year!). It’s the highlight of the show for me!

What a great giveaway! My favorite stamp stores are Simon Says Stamp and Ellen Hutson. Unfortunately, there are no good stamp stores in my town.

I was lucky enough to use a 50 percent off coupon in Michael's for an Ai purchase.
I always enjoy visiting your booth at the Stamp and Scrap Expo, (in Marlborough, MA)That's the best place to view all your products...and Simon Says Stamp is the best place to order on line, especially when I have a coupon! Would be thrilled to win this giveaway and would share with many friends!

All my LSS have closed. I sometimes shop at Impressive Ideas in Norcross, GA but its a couple hours away from me so I typically shop online. I have big box stores closer but they typically have the same handful of stamps and don't change out their inventory. Online I shop at stores that carry a variety of manufacturers and products, like Simon Says Stamp, Hallmark Scrapbook, and Ellen Hutson. Like everyone else, I'm always looking for someplace running a sale or discount because crafting is an expensive hobby. Thanks so much for your generosity in this giveaway. One person is going to be VERY happy!!!

craftysandy said...

I love your stamps. I own most of them. Just the right about of silly. My family would get worried if I sent them a serious card. So your stamps are perfect for me.

I purchase directly from you folks most of the time as our one remaining local store doesn't stock your product. I refuse to go in to Hobby Lobby due to their women's rights policy. Thanks for this giveaway, which is a stunning offer. From Laura Pervier (in case it shows up as Anon or Unknown)
