Coffee Loving Cardmakers – Hello Friend

Hello there! I’m over on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog today for another Tuesday Tea with Twiddler’s Nook. I’m so excited about the fun card share I’ve got today. I loved digging through some of my Mama Elephant stamps and dies that I haven’t used in a while to combine for a super fun card!

To create this fun card, I die cut all the pieces to the chickie favor bag accessory and the coffee cup from the boba shaker dies. I inked up the edges with coordinating distress inks for a little dimension. Then I die cut the hillside cover and laid it all out. It was missing something but I don’t have the chickie agenda and the critters I do have looked weird so I went digging some more. I found my party animals set and thought these chickies were so fun to add! I stamped and colored them with copics. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and moved on to assembly. 

The background looked too stark all white so I masked the edges off and inked the middle up with cracked pistachio distress ink for a subtle something. I added that to a card base and started adding pieces. I tucked the big chickie in place and glued the cup and hands down. Then I added the small chickies and realized I didn’t plan for a sentiment. Oops. I tried a few stamps but it didn’t look right so I pulled out my hello friend die and cut it out. I added this with my quickie glue pen (I love this for skinny little pieces like this.) and moved on to finishing touches.

I added glossy accents to all the chickie’s beaks and the big chickie’s eyes. I used black glaze pen on the little chickie’s eyes and then wink of stella glitter brush pen to the cup’s heart and the balloon. 

I’m addicted to these favor bag accessories and think they’re perfect to pair with the new boba shaker dies. I can’t wait to make more with other critters and maybe a boba shaker! Stay tuned for the one!

Also, I wanted to remind you that coming this Friday is the start of the Spring/Summer Coffee Lover’s Hop! I hope you’re going to play along with us! I look forward to see everyone’s creations and sharing some more fun inspiration too!

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