Coffee Loving Cardmakers – Coffee and You

Good morning everyone! It’s Tuesday Tea on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog today, so grab your cuppa and settle in for some ultra cuteness to be shared!

I had an idea for a fun layout so my card came together a little backwards for my typical style. I started by arranging the dies from my MFT Stamps Stitched Arch STAX dies on my card to see how I could get them to fit. Once I liked it, I arranged my stamps to see if I could fill the windows how I wanted and it worked perfect! I sent the arch dies through my die cutter and then moved over to stamping and coloring like I usually do.

I wanted to play with the Coffee and You set from Reverse Confetti because I just got it a few weeks ago and hadn’t been able to play yet. So I stamped and colored my images with copics, then used the coordinating dies to cut them all out.

Next, playing off the colors of my images, I inked up the arches that were die cut from my panel. I left the front panel white and stamped my sentiment on it.

For assembly, I added foam tape to the back of the white panel and then used it as a guide to adhere the inked arches to the card front. Once those were in place I removed the release paper and put the white panel in place. I added my images with a combination of foam squares a liquid glue to fill in my windows.

For finishing touches, I added a scattering of coffee bean clay hearts from Trinity Stamps and some glossy accents to the elephant’s feet and mouse noses.

This is such a clean and simple card for me but I really love how sweet it turned out.

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