I am back today with a card which is a tribute to my love for coffee 🙂 I made this cutie with stamps, dies and a fun layering stencil from Pretty Pink Posh, let me show you how!
First I created the background on cream cardstock using Distress Oxide inks with the Layered Coffee Cups stencil: Scattered Straw and Worn Lipstick for the mugs, Ground Espresso for the coffee layer and Abandoned Coral for the hearts. I also added white texture paste to the on-the-go cups and spritzed the mugs with Shimmer Mist for a subtle sparkle. After removing the stencil I added some splatters of the same diluted inks, it makes the whole background so playful.
Then I stamped the cups from Winter Drinks using brow hybrid ink for a warm feel. I coloured them with Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers: EB7, EB5, EB3, RB4, RB1, RB05, GB4, GB2, GB1, DR1, DR05, FS5. I die cut them with their coordinating dies.
While I was die cutting I also cut a brown tag from textured cardstock with the Fall Circles die set, white heat embossed the sentiment on the top from the Simple sayings: Life stamp set and popped up the cups with foam squares under it.
I trimmed the background piece tiny so I could mount it on a guava top folding card base, popped up the focal panel with 3D foam squares and added a matching twine to the top of the card.
As a finishing touch I used a clear shimmer pen and glossy accents on the cups and scattered a bunch of Sparkling clear jewels all around the card.
I will link this project up to the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.
I wish you like my card and will pop in again soon for more inspiration. I have some more caffeinated cards to share this week 😉
