Happy Tuesday friends! It’s time for Tuesday Tea with Twiddler’s Nook on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers. So be sure to grab a cuppa and settle in because I’ve got a really fun project to share with you today!
I couldn’t resist this super fun Halloween set from Ellen Hutson called Halloween Treat Tags. The ghost and bat in this set are beyond adorable! Today I’m just using the ghost for a super fun coffee sleeve with the Bear Cozy Kit and then switching gears to a card that coordinates!
For the cozy, I die cut the bear cozy main die from black felt and trimmed off the ears with scissors. Then I cut the ghost from sprout, lilac and sunset felt. I placed the negative from one of the ghosts in my MISTI and used it to align the stamp. Then I simply placed each ghost in the negative and stamped the image right on it. I happen to have a craft ink pad for fabric but I did a little research and you can you Ranger Archival ink on fabric too! I used Thermoweb Fabric Fuse liquid adhesive to adhere my ghosts in place and set it aside to dry.
While it was drying, I die cut a piece of black cardstock with a Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle. Then I took the die from the Bear Cozy kit that gives you stitching holes to sew your cozy together and cut two strips on my black cardstock. I dug through my embroidery floss and stitched a fun, random mess back and forth across the cardstock. I adhered the ends on the back with some washi tape. Then I cut the Lawn Fawn diagonal striped cover plate from coordinating cardstock and adhered it to a card base. Once that was done I used scrappy tape to adhere the stitched panel in place.
I chose sentiments from Tag It Halloween and stamped them in coordinating colors. Then I used a Pink & Main sentiment strip die to cut them all out. I stamped another ghost and used the coordinating die to cut him out and popped everything up with foam strips and squares.
With my card all finished and the ghosts on my cozy dry, I used the stitching die to cut holes on both ends, sewed a fun blanket stitch on the edges and then sewed the ends together, completely my little gift set!
This is going to be such a fun set to give away! I’m super excited!
