Welcome everyone! Today is the first Tuesday Tea with Twiddler’s Nook over on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog. I had sooooo much fun playing with a bunch of different products from Trinity Stamps to create a coffee love monster. I hope you like her too!
I started this card by die cutting the pieces to my monster using the Make-a-Monster dies. Then I cut the pieces to that yummy frap with the Summertime Sips dies. I took the Heartburst stencil and inked red and dark pink hearts on the cup for a little interest. I die cut the largest Slimline Modern Embossed Panel from light blue and the same red as the monster arms. Then with the red panel I took the cloud die from Slimline Scenic Borders and cut the top off creating some monster hair.
Now for assembly…I did this in steps. I glued all of the frap cup pieces together and then used it as a guide where to glue the monster face on. I glued the monster panel to the blue background panel and moved on to deciding where to add my sentiment. I tried up in the sky but I didn’t like it so I die cut a banner from the Mini Slimline Card and Envelope die set and stamped a sentiment from Love and Stuff on that. This is popped up with foam squares.
Moving on to finishing touches, I decided that my monster was a girl and she needed a bow so I die cut the smallest from the Bunch of Bows set and put it together. I used liquid glue and my tweezers to attach it to the top right side of the monster. Then I pulled out some adorable clay hearts from the Craft Hugs embellishment mix which was an exclusive Trinity handed out at Creativation last year. These tiny hearts were just the ticket to finish off my card.
Phew, that was a lot of steps. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did creating it!
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
