Welcome friends! Today I have a bit of caffeinated inspiration featuring stamps and stencils from Miss Ink Stamps. Tomorrow is the start of the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Spring | Summer Hop and I wanted to get you warmed up today!
To start this card, I had an idea in my head, so I pulled out my stamps and laid them on a card from to see if things would fit the way I was hoping. It seemed to work out so I stamped everything and colored the images with my copic markers. I used the scan-n-cut to cut them all out and arranged them in layers, using liquid glue to adhere small bits together at a time.
Once I had the general shape of my images together I pulled out an A2 panel and inked it up with cracked pistachio and mermaid lagoon distress oxide inks. Then I layered the Springtime Lace stencil over the top and added another layer of the same colors over the top. I spritzed the panel with water and then gold watercolor and set it aside to dry.
Once the panle was dry, I trimmed it down to 4×5.25 inches and added it to a white card base with liquid glue. I added the images with a combo of liquid glue and foam squares next. Finally, I put the whole card in my MISTI and carefully stamped my sentiment nestled in beneath the banner.
For finishing touches I added some glossy accents to parts of the coffee beans and berries on the branch. Then I added unicorn Stickles to the flowers and leaves.
Be sure to start at the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog tomorrow and hop along for chances to win prizes at lost of stops, including Miss Ink Stamps and back here too!
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
