Hey there! It’s time for another Tuesday Tea with Twiddler’s Nook over on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog. Today I’m sharing bottomless thanks and some new-to-me products. It was messy fun!
I had lots of fun creating today’s card. I started by stamping and coloring my images from Miss Ink Stamps Brewtiful set with my copics. Then I used the scan-n-cut to cut them all out and I started deciding how to create the background I had in my head. After lots of trial and error, I landed on using the Backgammon 2 stencil on brown cardstock with some Nuvo expanding mousse I recently purchased. I decided to try heating it up for that puffy look. It’s sooo cool! I’ll definitely have to get some more colors. Then I die cut the panel with my Frames & Flags dies from Newton’s Nook.
Next, I cut a piece of blue cardstock matching my mug and stamped the smaller flower images from the set repeatedly creating my own patterned paper. I glued this to a brown card base and popped my stenciled panel up with foam tape. Then with a combination of liquid glue and foam squares I adhered my images. I stamped my sentiment on the same blue cardstock and trimmed it into a strip, popping it up with foam squares too.
For finishing touches on my card today, I added glossy accents to the dots on the mug, flower stamen and the coffee beans. I also added a little Wink of Stella glitter brush pen to the sentiment strip and the “X” in my XO.
I love cards with dimension and texture and this one is packed full. I had fun creating it and hope you enjoyed it too.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
