Coffee Loving Cardmakers – Coffee Hugs Enclosed

Happy Tuesday everyone! It’s time for tea over on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog today. I have a slimline card to share featuring goodies from Trinity Stamps. Did you know that you can get a free mug die with a $25 order? There is a series of 12 different cups to collect. They are so fun but I hadn’t actually used them yet. So today I have a card featuring 5 different ones!

I started this card going in a completely different direction than I ended up, even thinking at one point I would make 5 gift tags. Well, as you can see we landed on a fun slimline card design with a cluster of cute cups in the center.

I cut each cup from white cardstock and took the inserts out to color with my copic markers. Then I lined the back with a strip of washi tape and inserted the pieces back into the white frames.

I cut the largest Trinity Stamps Slimline Dainty Scallop panel from white cardstock and inked it up with the Coffee Bean Layers stencil, using two different brown inks. I didn’t want the stark white of the background to compete with the white cup frames so I went over the whole panel with the lightest brown ink left in my brush so it just tinted the paper.

Then I lined up the cups how I wanted them and popped them up with foam tape on the panel. I lined that panel with foam tape as well and popped it up on a white slimline card base.

I didn’t have a sentiment in mind so I just went digging through my stash. When I found this “hugs enclosed” sentiment on an Avery Elle set, I remembered I had the awesome Studio Katia coffee dies and thought that they would be so fun together! So I stamped the second part in brown ink using my MISTI since I already had those layers stuck down. I cut the shadow from white cardstock and inked it up just a tad with that same brown brush, no new ink added. Then I cut the word “coffee” from white cardstock 3 times and adhered them together and to the shadow.

I absolutely love how this card turned out! So fun and almost spring feeling with the cup colors.
