Let's Go For A Ride

Greetings lovely people.

Today's card is simple. We don't always have to be elaborate with our creations. Sometimes simple makes the right statement.

I wanted to highlight the lovely classic car image created by our own Annie Collins (available in the Lady Beans Etsy store).

I printed the image and colored it using American Crafts metallic markers and Ohuhu alcohol markers. I then printed a background of a country road (and included a sentiment - all done in Microsoft Publisher) near where I live. I took this picture a few years ago. It is the perfect compliment to this lovely image. Hopefully it will inspire you to integrate some of your own images into your creations. We all take lots of photos with our phones so let's use them to our advantage.

I then mounted the car onto the photo and mounted both onto a 5 x 7 card. Voila! A simple yet elegant card to give for any occasion. As a matter of fact, it would be great to send to a friend at this time in our lives when we all want to get out a bit. Why not just go for a ride? Social distancing made easy.

I hope you enjoy the card. Have a blessed day.

I think Annie Collins did an awesome job with this image. I used copic markers to color the car. The clouds and sentiment are from my Lawn Fawn stash. I kept this clean and simple so I can use this for a guy card.

Good Luck Best Wishes

 For my last card of this month I chose to bling it up. This card was so much fun to make. The horseshoe is a Digi file designed by Anne Ingram and can be found in Lady Beans Etsy Shop.  I used Nuvo glue pen and Nuvo Pure Sheen Glitter in steel gray. The flower is a cut out from a previous Stampin Up Paper Pumpkin pack. Sentiment is The Ton Easy Expressions. Card stock is Soft Suede and Wood Texture Designer series paper from Stampin Up.  The Peel off Sticker strips are from Love From Lizzy in Pink Glitter and Silver. Hope you like bling!

Happy Father's Day BookMark, Coffee Beans June 2020

Welcome Back Friends,

Robin here with the Lady Beans Blog, sharing my project using the most adorable image  Jesse Boy Bear, from  Bug A Boo Stamps , for Fathers Day.

My father has been gone for 22 years, I miss him everyday.  He was an avid reader, and hence very smart.  I know how much he would of loved my bookmark !!

I colored my image with colored pencils, fussy cut the bear out. Inserted pattern paper, that I stamped Happy Fathers Day onto, and then inserted that into the bookmark sleeve, and then adhered Jesse Boy Bear to the front of the bookmark. I love the dimension with the image on the outside of the sleeve.

Thank You for visiting and as always I appreciate your kind comments

Until Next time....

Wedding Card

Hello - Helle here with my last post as Design Team Member of the Coffee Beans Design Team.

I chose to make the lovely Wedding Cake that Anne Ingram designed and that you can find in the Etsy Store and the flowers are designed by Annie Collins.

This time I did a mixture of print and cut and coloring in the image.

The cake, background and the card are all print and cut - papers are from BoBunny's Digi collection "Country Garden" 

I used Promarkers to color in the flowers and used a Glitter Gelly Roll pen for the flower centers.

Finally I found a fun adhesive pearl swirl for the cake to give it that last WOW factor.

Thank you for visiting. Thank you to the Lady Beans/The Coffee Beans for having me on their team. I've really enjoyed my time here and will be following you on the sideline from now on.

Hello Anne Ingram here and I am rebelling!!! Lol. I used all my images for our team n the early part of the month so I decided to do a 4th of July Card . We don't tend to celebrate the 4th where I live but I wanted to celebrate with this card for all of my friends across the pond .

I downloaded the flag from the net and cut all the images out with my Scan and Cut . Hand drew a few fireworks added lots of glitter to finish off. 
I hope you like it!! Hugs ❤

Bippity Boppity Boo

Hi everyone! The shoe image from Coffee Beans reminds me of the glass slipper from the movie Cinderella. I used my zig markers to color the image. Distress ink and heffy doodle stencil for the stars background. I also use my wink of Stella to add a little glitter.

Hi Emma here from the lady beans I am using the horse shoe file by our lovely Anne Ingram which is available from her Etsy shop

I decided to make this into a good luck charm that you give to the bride at her wedding I thought I’d do quilling with it to make something a bit different I used 3 different tones of pink and made them into swirls I also added some gems for a little bit of sparkle and 2 pretty heart gems to finish it off plus ribbon for you to hang it by hope you like it thank you for looking

Shoes to Die for

Coffee Bean Design's Fans!

Today is my last guest design team post for Coffee Bean Designs, I hope you have enjoyed all the craftroom creations I have shared over the last couple months. Today's craftroom creation is a card inspired by a pair of iconic red heels.

As soon as I saw the high heel shoe digital stamp I knew it need to be red. I started off by printing my digital stamps on white card stock. My color medium of choice is Copic markers but use whatever you enjoy coloring with.

Copic combos
R17, R27, R29, & R59
C7, C9, & 100

After the shoes were all colored, I covered them with clear wink of Stella and glossy accents. Glossy accents needs time to dry so I set the shoes aside and worked on another card, which you can find over on my blog.

For the background I cut down yellow card stock to 4 by 5 1/4 inches and pulled out my brick stencil by Kindred stamps. Next I inked my background with scattered straw and wild honey distress ink, blending in from the short sides of the yellow cardstock.

Once everything was dry I fussy cut the shoes out remembering to run a water based black marker along the edge to hide the white core of the cardstock. I cut and scored a black A2 card base and added my yellow brick background. To add more dimension to the focal point I glued one shoe down flat while popping up the other on foam. To grounded the focal image I created a sentiment on my computer and cut it into a strip to place under the shoes. I added a red heart gems to each shoes as a final detail.

I love the way this card came out and hope you did too. I want to say thank you all the ladies behind Coffee Bean Designs for letting me be a part of the guess design team. I enjoyed getting to share my craftroom creation with you all. If you want to see more of my work you can find me on social media @TheCraftBean.
