Happy Friday everyone! I’m super excited to be apart of the Coffee Loving Cardmakers – Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps Collaboration today! I’ve made 2 cards to share with you featuring I Like Big Cups and Coffee Talk 2. These sets pair perfectly together so I couldn’t resist.
Let’s talk slimline first, shall we? I inked up a panel with ground espresso, vintage photo and tea dye distress oxide inks. Then I flicked some watered down ground espresso ink and regular water all over the panel. Once that was dry, I pulled out the Trinity Stamps slimline modern embossed panels dies and cut the 3 largest sizes from: dark brown, rose gold and the inked panel. The brown was adhered to a slimline card base with liquid glue, then the rose gold with foam tape. I wrapped some twine around the inked panel, tied it in a knot and put foam tape on the back avoiding the twine and put it in place too. Then I stamped and colored the travel cup and sleeve from I Like Big Cups and cut them out. I stamped a sentiment from Coffee Talk 2 on the sleeve and adhered them together with liquid glued. I added foam tape to the back of the cup, skipping the part where it overlaps the twine so it lays flat and popped it in place. For finishing touches I added some hearts and coffee beans from Twiddler’s Nook Caffeinated Crafting embellishment mix.
For my second card, I wanted to brighten things up a bit. So I chose a selection of blue and teal cardstocks and cut some different width strips. I added adhesive to a white panel and stuck the strips down at an angle and trimmed off the excess. I trimmed the panel down to 4×5.25 inches and stamped a sentiment from Coffee Talk 2 in the bottom right corner. I stamped another mug from I Like Big Cups, colored it with my copics and cut it out. I popped it up with foam squares and added foam tape to the back of the striped panel. I decided for a little contrast so I attached it to a black A2 size panel and used liquid glue to adhere it on a white card base. Then for finishing touches I added some white gel pen accents to the mug and a scattering of Twiddler’s Nook Princess Rings – Tiana across the design.
