Tutorial Thursday - Making coffee tags

Hello everyone, having a fabulous summer??

Maria Therese here today to take you through a easy tutorial on how you can make those
 awesome brown coffee tags... 

At first I'll start off by showing you a decorated one, I'll go through the tutorial by explaining every picture and I have a few more tags decorated at the end..

I've decorated the tag with 

At first I start off by cutting up some tags I used the Large Nested Tag Die-lights and I used the two largest but it really depends on what your using them for what size you want to use. 

I used white Bazzill cardstock for my tags.

I used a spray can of water and some cheap instant coffee no need to waist the good one..

I sprayed the tags with water and sprinkled the coffee over and did this a few times until I felt the were covered enough..
I did the same on the other side , sprayed and sprinkled quite a few times..

and when they looked like this I even swirled them around on the matt to get them more greasy..

Over night I put them to dry...

And in the morning I had them looking like this...

Now there is another way to do it also..
But I feared the bazzill couldn't handle it but If you have a cardstock that is kind of coated you can fill a tray with water drop in half a jar off instant coffee and swirl around  until the coffee is dissolved in the water , out the tags in the tray, sprinkle a bit more coffee over and let it sit overnight and then let to dry..

Hope you want to try this and please if you do pop on over to my blog and link me to your coffee tags I would love to see them!

So here as promised a few more decorated ones..

On these I used the same as linked to above and also

Have an awesome summer and please come visit my blog ♥

 Hello there creative friends. It's me Maria with a new creation for you today. Because today it's ''Make a card Monday'',  I am going to share a beautiful marine themed card. We all know that the colour palette for the marine is: red, blue and white. This tip made my work much more easier.

 As always, for colouring I used inktense pencils. I just simply love them and they are they best.
Feel free to check out Whiff of Joy Facebook page and my blog for more Whiff of Joy inspiration. Have a wonderful creative day.

Color me Happy

Hallo zusammen, 
hier ist Anja und heute möchte ich euch zeigen wie ich einen Hintergrund mit Twinklings gestalte.

Hi there, 
here is Anja and today I want to show you a background painting with Twinklings.
Hier kommt erstmal die fertige Karte: 

Here's the finished card:
Die neuen Digi Stempel gibt es ab dem 20.07.14 im Shop.

The new digital images will be available at 20.07.14 in the Shop.
Und nun zu den Twinklings :) 
Ihr braucht ein Stück Aquarellpapier, einen Wassertankpinsel und Twinklings in blau und grün. 
Eine Sprühflasche mit Wasser wird ebenfalls benötigt. 

And now to the Twinklings :) 
You need a piece of watercolor paper, a watertank brush and Twinklings in blue and green. 
A spray bottle with water is also needed.
Das Papier wird zuerst mit Wasser besprüht und dann mit den Twinklings eingefärbt. 

The paper is first sprayed with water and then inked with the Twinklings.
Dann noch einmal das ganze mit Wasser besprühen und anschließend mit einem Heißluftfön trocknen. 
Das schimmert alles so toll :)

Spray Water again and dry it with the heat gun. 
Everything shines so great :)
Das Papier kann nun geprägt werden und die Ränder habe ich noch mit Distress Ink eingefärbt. 

The paper can now be embossed and the edges I have colored with Distress Ink.
Das war auch schon alles :) 
Ich hoffe euch gefällt mein Beitrag. Vielen Dank für euren Besuch!! 
Liebe Grüße, 

That´s all :) 
I hope you like my post. Thank you for your visit! 

Digi Stempel (ab dem 20.07. verfügbar)
