Prima Coffee Break - Cards

Hello mateys,

How has the week been progressing for you? Its getting warmer here in Sydney, spring is in the air and in my mood. Combining my DT work for both MMCC and Lulupu this month.
Lulupu's challenge for you is to create a project with
There are so many products that you can use to add some shine to your projects - the good old rhinestone, sugar dots, more trendy sequins, glitter. Don't forget Heidi Swap colour shine mists, ranger perfect pearls, wink of Stella..... the list goes on.
The Mixed Media Card Challenge theme this month is friendship with an optional element of using ribbon.
Today I want to share 3 cards with you all, mixed media style of course. All of them are made with Prima Coffee Break papers, wood embellishments, stamps and medium, based on the September Prima BAP.
2015-September-BAP-riikka


The background for this card was prepared using strips of torn paper, gesso, a bit of lace, stencilling using the prima bubble stencil and finally a sticker from the same collection. Watercolours were added after that and finally when everything was dry, mix glass glitter with gel medium and apply. Gel medium dries clear, meaning you can see the paint and layers underneath giving a very interesting effect.

For this card, start by applying 3d gel through prima stencil, before the gel dries, sprinkle glitter over it. You can combine two or more glitters too for more depth. Allow to dry completely, else the glitter will stick to your fingers and come off. Places where the glitter didn't stick, the 3d gel medium gives a see through embossed kind of effect.

My final card is very simple. Ive used the traditional rhinestone to add colour to an otherwise coffee coloured card. 

Thank you for visiting me today. Have a great week.

  1. Three wonderful, different cards - just adore your MM work, especially the splash of colour in with the coffee natural tones. THOSE GLASSES...neat touch! And the bit of glitter, too, works sooo well :):)

  2. I really, really love these cards! This style so speaks to me, but for some reason I seem to have a hard time with it. I think after stamping for 15 years I've just developed a "certain way" of doing things and wish that wasn't the case so I could branch out and try new styles. What's a girl to do?! I'm going to nosy around your blog now for more awesome inspiration. THANKS!
