Hey friends! I’m back again kicking off some great card inspiration for you as part of the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Design Team. I’m starting the hop off with Super Sponsor Pawesome Stamps! Their artwork is beyond words adorable and so fun to create with!
Today I chose some images from Coffee Besties, inked them up and colored them with my copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and switched gears to my background.
It’s been a minute since I played with alcohol inks so I did a little panel with deception and mineral alcohol pearl inks on yupo paper. After it was dry, I trimmed my panel down and adhered it to a white card base. I popped up a black strip of cardstock with a foam strip and then added my images with foam squares too.
Finally, I put the whole thing in my MISTI and stamped a sentiment in the top left white space. For finishing touches I added peppermint clay embellishments around the coffee beans and in the whipped cream. Then I added glossy accents to the kitty’s glasses, nose, dots on the cup and stripes on the straw.
I love how versatile stamps can be when you think outside the box. Nothing about this card says Christmas except the colors I chose for the mugs and the peppermint candies. I’m hoping to add a little coffee gift card to the inside of this and mail it to a friend for Christmas.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
