Pink & Main – Espresso My Gratitude

Hi friends! I’m over on the Pink & Main blog today featuring some caffeinated fun to keep you inspired for the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Fall | Winter hop going on right now!

I just think this Need to Venti set is so much fun! I pictured today’s cup of yummy to be a fantastic mocha with whipped cream and chocolate syrup on top! Drooling yet? Yeah, me too. Let’s get to crafting now. 😉

I stamped and colored my image with copics. Then used the coordinating dies to cut it out and moved over to stenciling my background. For that I used the leafy stencil, my blending brushes and some dye inks. I inked up the panel, then put the stencil over the top and did another layer of the same colors on top of that. Isn’t it fabulous? I’m totally in love with it. After removed my mask, I used my MISTI to stamp the sentiment just below the stenciling on the right side of the card front.

I created a white card base and stuck some gold striped washi tape to the side. Then I trimmed the stenciled panel down to 4×5.25 and popped it up with foam tape. I added foam squares to the back of my image and stuck some gold wire thread to the back, then flipped it over and put it in place.

For finishing touches, I added glossy accents to the chocolate syrup and a few select places on the mug. Then I decided to add Wink of Stella glitter brush pen to the leaf in the whipped cream. I’ve decided this is made of chocolate and that edible glitter.

I hope you enjoyed today’s yummy creation and found some inspiration to play along with the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Hop too!

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