Trying Out We R Memory Keepers Bevel Quill

Hello! We have a new challenge at Incy Wincy Designs Challenge blog. Our challenge theme is Curvy/Curves. We have two generous sponsors for this challenge. I am using an image from SheepSki Designs.

I am also using a product that has been on my 'new' things corner of my craft table for a long time, the We R Memory Keepers Bevel Quill kit. I already have the We R Memory Keepers Foil Quill and the Freestyle Foil Quill Pen which I really enjoy using. There are still other Quill sets by We R Memory Keepers but I chose the Bevel Quill because I like the debossed image look on the faux metal die cut. 

I printed the image on watercolor paper. I colored the image with Tim Holtz Distress Ink ink Rusty Hinge and Ground Espresso for the coffee and coffee beans, and Weathered Wood and Hickory Smoke for the coffee cup. For the coffee design, I don't have a white gouache in my stash so I used the Copic Opaque White ink instead. I fussy cut the image leaving a white border around it.

For the background, I embossed a dark brown cardstock on a Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirls embossing folder. I lightly sanded the raised swirls. I added details to the tips of the swirls by coloring it with Nuvo ? pen. The embossing folder is 4" x 5 1/4" so I had to trim off the edge without any embossing. 

For the focal point of the card, I designed the sentiment on Cricut Design Space. The bevel will take the spot of the marker in the Cricut machine. I positioned the metallic board die cut on the Cricut mat and pressed the start button to let the bevel pen create the impression on the board. Once this is done, without pressing the unload button, I pressed the start button again. I did this five times total to create a deeper imprint. Look at the photo below and see how great the imprint is.

The metallic die cuts that come with the kit has a circle that comes with it but it was too large for my design. I die cut this into a smaller circle by using My Favorite Things Circle Stax die. I adhered the image to the center. I adhered this to the panel with foam adhesive.

Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope to see your creations in the blog challenge. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
