I love how this turned out and that it feels a little Spring-like to me. I may send this as a valentine…who knows! I can tell you that I enjoy stretching my creativity by entering sketch challenges. Do you?
I had so much fun creating this card for the Coffee Loving Cardmaker’s Fall/Winter blog hop!
I started by stamping this adorable image from Stamplorations recent release with Momento Tuxedo Black ink. Then, I used my Copic markers to color it. I really enjoyed creating my mocha swirl inside the cup! Since I don’t have dies, I needed to fussy cut my colored image. My background was created by die cutting a tan piece of cardstock with Lawn Fawn’s Quilted Backdrop and adhered that to my card base. I added foam tape to the back of my cup image to give my card some dimension. Lastly, I added sparkly washi tape to add some more detail to my card.
I think I am ready for Peppermint Mocha season! How about you?
I certainly hope so! I am so thrilled to have joined Divinity Designs as a guest designer. I have always been a huge fan of their unique dies and I appreciate all of their uplifting stamps and sentiments.
This month they have released the Twist and Pop die. This die helps you to create a fun, pop up feature to the inside of your card!
For my card I used the Great Faith stamp/die duo for the florals and sentiments. I really love the hibiscus image, so I stamped it in a light ink to create a floral background. I’m so pleased at how this turned out. I stamped and Copic colored several more of the hibiscus images and then die cut them to place on my card.
Here is another card I created from the new release. This card features the My World stamp/die duo. This set contains lots of sentiments that would be perfect for Mother’s Day as well as some pretty rose images. I also incorporated the Delicate Doily Die that I decided to use the inlaid die-cutting technique. I have been creating lots of “thinking of you” cards during this pandemic. I believe this card would be perfect to send to one of my far away relatives.
For this card, I really wanted the Delicate Doily Die to be the focus. I die cut 2 doilies and offset layered them. I stamped the sentiment from the Great Faith Stamp/Die Duo directly onto the top layer of the doily. Lots of rectangle layers to complete the background.
