Coffee Loving Cardmakers – National Iced Tea Day

Hey friends! It’s National Iced Tea Day and we’re having a fun celebration with the Coffee Loving Cardmakers team! A few of us have created cards inspired by this fabulously fine drink and we want to share with you! So grab a nice tall glass and sit back for some fun inspiration!

For my card today, I stamped and colored images from Pretty Pink Posh Summer Friends and Tropical Birds. I colored them with my copic markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. Then I die cut the larger Scallop Diamond Tag from white cardstock. I went back and cut the bottom tip two more times from white cardstock as well. Then I used a couple of Lawn Fawn dies to cut the top edges of those portions – waves and a sandy hill.

I used Trinity Stamps blending buddy brushes to ink up the layers – sand is Lawn Fawn doe ink, waves are Lawn Fawn forget me not ink and the sky is Lawn Fawn mermaid and peacock inks. I used liquid glue to adhere the layers together along with my palm tree. Then I used foam squares to add the girl and her ice tea on top of that.

For my background panel, I used Lawn Fawn bubblegum and sunflower inks with the Trinity Stamps Waving Hello stencil. Then I trimmed it down to 4×5.25 inches and went around the edge with the sunflower ink that was left on my blending brush.

I assembled all the layers with foam tape and went digging for that perfect sentiment. When I saw the one in the Clearly Besotted Spilling Tea set I knew I had to use it. I stamped and heat embossed it on black cardstock and adhered it with a combo of foam strip and liquid glue.

For finishing touches, I added some glossy accents to the girl’s sunglasses and iced tea cup. Then I glued down a scattering of boiled sugar jelly drop hearts across the design.
