About my creativity…

Hello Everyone,

Just in case you wonder what makes me so creative, I made a card to answer your question 😀 Made it especially for the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

I started with die cutting the Simon Says Stamp Coffee cup 4 times from Ranger Distress watercolour paper. I adhered 3 layers together and inked up the 4th one with Distress ink (Barn Door) in an ombre way before gluing it on top of the others. The little heart I inked with some blue distress ink too.

I took a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock and I used the MFT Sunray stencil to add colour to it. Then I used some cute stitched swirls dies from Paper Smooches for the steam. I also die cut the Coffee word die (Your Next Stamp) from black cardstock and using an Elizabeth Crafts Designs mini stamp set I stamped the rest of the sentiment on the left corner with some blue ink (Altenew).

I wanted something special to the edge of my focal panel, so I used a pretty border die from Memory Box and also adhered a skinny strip of Cornflower blue patterned paper above to anchor the blues I used on my card.

I used a black and white striped washi tape on the bottom of a white card base and I used 3D foam tape to mount my stencilled panel. After placing the cup in its place, I used some Sunshine sequins (Simon Says Stamp) to embellish the card.

I will upload this card also to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Stencil it, and to the Wednesday Challenge Anything goes.

I hope you like my card and will return soon for more 😉

See you,

  1. I absolutely love what you’ve done with this card! it is completely brilliant and I really like the way you paired the heart on the mug with those big bad bold stripes! And the sun ray is so skillfully used! This whole thing came together perfectly and made me smile! Thank you so much for sharing your talents with us for this week’s Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
