Hi again! Today is Tuesday Tea over on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog, in the middle of the Spring|Summer Coffee Lovers Hop! Today I have a pair of cards featuring Super Sponsor Jane’s Doodles to share with you.
I started these cards by stamping the images from Coffee Time on Bristol Smooth cardstock and heat embossing them in black. Then I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to watercolor them in. Then I ran them through the scan-n-cut and started playing with them to decide on final designs.
For this first one, I inked up a white panel with ground espresso distress oxide by dragging the pad across the paper. Then I used gathered twigs distress oxide around the edges. I spritzed it with water and die cut it with Super Sponsor Trinity Stamps’ embossed edge rectangle die. Next, I dug out a very old Bo Bunny stamp set and stamped the coffee stain rings on the panel with ground espresso distress oxide ink. Then I chose 2 smaller embossed edge rectangle dies and cut out frames in white and black and glued them down with liquid glue. I popped up my images with foam squares. Last, I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from Coffee Time, cut it into a strip and popped it up as well.
For the second card, I took a white panel and arranged all the images from Coffee Time on them and stamped them repeatedly creating my own patterned paper. I had so much fun placing each image and seeing how I could make them fit together like a puzzle. Then I pulled out two die sets from Super Sponsor Newton’s Nook – circle frames and banner trio. I cut a circle from vellum and a banner from black. I heat embossed a different sentiment on the banner and adhered it to the bottom of the circle. Then I popped my images up with foam squares and hid more foam squares behind those on the vellum circle so both layers have dimension.
I hope you’re having a fun week with all of the caffeinated inspiration and that you’re playing along with us too! Remember to head HERE to link up your coffee creations before Friday.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
