It’s finally here! The 2020 Fall | Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is here and we’re going to have so much fun over the next week! Twiddler’s Nook is a sponsor of the hop so today I’m sharing some fun product photos with you to show how our products can help your crafting life while I’m creating a fun caffeinated card!
Before we get too far, I wanted to let you know that we’re having a sale in the shop for the week of the Coffee Lovers Hop! Embellishments are buy 3 get 1 free with the code: CLH2020. Be sure to put all 4 embellishments in your cart and enter the code in the coupon section at checkout.
Now, lets get on to some crafting, shall we?!? 😉 For today’s card, I chose a few fun Avery Elle products to create a sweet caffeinated thank you card. I thought it was fitting for the season.
I stamped and colored my images from Avery Elle’s Aw, Nuts with my copic markers. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and set them aside. But woah, let’s take a look at how some of the fun products that Twiddler’s Nook creates can help keep you sane and not losing pieces on a crazy craft table.
So, after I color my images, I pull the dies out from the set that I need and put them on my magnetic die stand. Then I can take them one at a time and tape them in place with post it tape.
Heading over to my die cutter, I run the sheet through the machine and over here I have a couple of products that keep me organized. An embellishment tray to put my cut out images in and 2 magnetic trays to put my dies in. I separate the dies I’m finished with from the ones that I’ll need to use again, like the leaves on this card. One note here, I have the magnetic trays on a single wide platform which keeps them in place nicely too.
Once all my images were cut out, I moved back to my desk with my tray full of cuteness to finish off my card. I figured out placement of the colored images and did some additional stamping directly on my card front.
Once that was finished, I brought in my double wide platform base and Trinity Stamps blending brushes to add some dimension to the edges of my card. Full disclosure…these brushes are within reach but I brought them in for the photo. The magnetic caps on the bottom let me know what color the brush is for and the platform has metal to help them stay in place so they don’t fall over when I grab one from the middle.
From here I finished up my card by adhering the leaves with liquid glue and popping my cute critters up with foam squares. At the end I couldn’t find a great way to add the sentiment included in Aw, Nuts so I pulled out Cool Beans and Speech Bubbles to create my own and glued it so the squirrel is sharing his thanks with the critters below.
For finishing touches on today’s card, I added glossy accents to the mug, black glaze pen to all the critter eyes and noses, and a little unicorn Stickles to the squirrel’s scarf and hot cocoa steam too. Lastly, I took a white gel pen and added highlights to all of the images.
I just love this set so much and had a blast creating this card. I hope you enjoyed it too!
Remember we have the embellishment sale going on and all of our other products are available for purchase at the Twiddler’s Nook shop too!
