Coffee Loving Cardmakers – Hug in a Mug

But for now, I’ve got a super awesome card share for you featuring bundles of products from Super Sponsor Newton’s Nook!

I had an idea in my head so I got my stamps out and piled them together to see if it might turn out how it was looking in my head. Things were looking promising so I stamped out a bundle of images from My Type, Cup of Cocoa and Lovely Blooms. I colored everything with my copics and used the coordinating dies to cut it all out. Then I stamped and heat embossed the jar from Lovely Blooms on vellum and cut it out as well. For the sentiment, I carefully masked off part of a sentiment from Cup of Cocoa and stamped it on the typewriter from My Type.

Next, I moved on to my background so it would have time to dry. I used Nuvo Embellishment Mousse in forest green over the Mugs stencil on a white panel. I let it dry and trimmed it down to 4×5.25. However, while it was drying I pulled out the Essential Alphabet dies and cut the word “hug” from gray cardstock 4 times and glued them together. I die cut a flag from the Frames & Flags dies from white and dark red and adhered them together with a little overlap showing at the bottom. I adhered the letters to that with liquid glue.

At this point, I used liquid glue to adhere all the flower layers together and the cup to the side of the typewriter as well. The flower jar was adhered to the stenciled panel with liquid glue white the mug and typewriter were popped up with foam squares. Then I popped up the flag with foam squares too.

I popped the whole decorated panel up with foam tape on a white card base and moved on to finishing touches. There’s a lot going on so I just added some glossy accents to the mug, typewriter, flower centers and the die cut letters. A little extra shine but it doesn’t distract from the whole picture.

I had so much fun creating this card and I can’t wait to share it with someone. I hope you enjoyed it and also enjoyed our week of celebration for National Coffee Day!

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