Coffee Loving Cardmakers – Peppermint Spice and Everything Nice

Hello again crafty friends! It’s Tuesday Tea with Twiddler’s Nook over on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog today and I had an absolute blast creating today’s card. I don’t think I’ve ever been so free thinking with combining products from different companies. It was so fun!

To start my card, I cut the Boo Brew mug and stitching detail from Trinity Stamps from pink cardstock. Then I cut a nested heart to go with it. That’s as far as my planning went. Lol. So I grabbed my blending brushes, Lawn Fawn ballet slippers and guava inks and inked the edges of my die cuts. Then I wanted texture on the background heart so I went looking for a stencil or something. I instantly landed on this Pink & Main woodgrain embossing folder.

I got into my Newton’s Nook stash for my framework dies to cut a background panel and remembered the awesome peppermint candy dies and everything just came together from this point on. I cut the background from white cardstock and then used the petite hearts stencil that was just revealed yesterday (It will be available to purchase on Friday.) I didn’t want everything to be stark white so I used Lawn Fawn pizza crust ink on the edges of the background panel and my card base. To dress up my mug a little I cut the smallest heart from the Heart Frames set from the same cardstock as the large heart and glued it down.

I popped the background panel up with foam tape, then popped the large heart up too. I used a combination of liquid glue and foam squares for my mug and peppermint candies. Then I die cut a stitched banner from Newton’s Nook banner trio die set and stamped a sentiment from the Cup of Cocoa stamp set in ballet slippers ink. I dusted the edges with the same pizza crust ink and popped it up with foam squares too.

I used my scissors to trim off the excess hanging over the edge and moved on to finishing touches. For that I just glue three Trinity Stamps jelly drop hearts down – one to the mug and two by the sentiment banner.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project as much as I did creating it.
