Fall Coffee Colour Wash

Hi there.  Quickly dropping in again to share a fall coffee themed card.

 

 

A rectangle window was die cut in the centre of an A2 size Early Espresso stitched rectangle.  The watercolour wash background was created on watercolor paper with Mustard Seed, Rusty Hinge and Barn Door distress inks.

 

 

Once the wash background was dry, the beans were stamped with Early Espresso ink and the sentiment was gold heat embossed.

 

 

The espresso panel was mounted onto a white top folding card base with foam tape for dimension. To give it some strength, the Coffee Cup Silhouette (thank you Loll for this great die) was die cut twice from white cardstock and stacked.  Keeping it really CAS, so no embellishments. And that completes the card.  Thank you for visiting.

Spring Coffee

Hi there.  It was a miserable wet day today, so I thought it would be the perfect time to make a CAS Spring themed coffee card for the 2017 Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  😂   Last year’s bloghop was kind of the springboard that helped me consider starting my blog.  And in a week, it will be my one year blog anniversary.  But before then, here’s my card.

In the upper half of a white Stitched Rectangle, Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide ink was blended over a DIY cloud stencil with a Clarity brush for a nice soft look.

The branch, monkey and cup were stamped with Intense Black ink and coloured with Copics.  The branch and monkey were die cut out with the matching dies.  Fussy cut the cup and the monkey’s tail to have it look like it’s holding the cup.

Heat embossed the sentiment in black.  Die cut the coffee letters twice to stack them.  I really need to get a coffee word die. 😂  Used a Clarity brush to add Worn LIpstick Distress Oxide ink to the bottom of the letters.  Adhered the stitched panel to a top folding card base and added Clear Wink of Stella to the cup and the coffee diecuts to finish.
