Coffee Loving Cardmakers – Thanks a Latte

Hey all! It’s another Tuesday Tea with Twiddler’s Nook over on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog and I’ve got a fantastic card to share with you!

I am so excited with how this fun card turned out. I started by stamping images from Lawn Fawn sets – Thanks a Latte, Oh Gnome and Gleeful Gardens. Then I cut some masking paper for the mugs and stamped the flowers and mushrooms from Oh Gnome on them. I set to work coloring everything with my copic markers and then used the coordinating dies to cut it all out.

I set those aside and started working on my background. I took three white panels and inked them up with distress oxide inks for dirt, grass and sky. I used tea dye and gathered twigs, twisted citron and mowed lawn, and tumbled glass and salty ocean. Then I spritzed the panels with water, blotted them dry and die cut each with the largest stitched rectangle. I glued the blue one to a card base and die cut the other two with hills from the simple stitched hillsides. Then I adhered those as well and started deciding on final placement all of my images.

Everything is glued directly to the cardfront, tucked behind the hills with tape runner, with the exception of the hummingbird in the sky, the cups, gnomes and snails on the bottom.

I used my MISTI to stamp a sentiment at the top and moved on to finishing touches. At first I wasn’t going to do much but that went out the window quick. I added unicorn Stickles to the flower centers and glossy accents to the mushroom dots. Then I added Wink of Stella glitter brush pen to the hummingbird. I thought I was done but I was wrong. 😉 I added glossy accents to the snail shells and mugs and then for fun, I added Wink of Stella to the whipped cream and marshmallows too.

It’s a super busy card but I love it! It’s like we’ve discovered a little gnome coffee date in the middle of a flower garden or something.

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
