How are you doing? Hope you're finding time to craft. There is very little that makes me feel better than playing with paper at my craft table. We have a new challenge at Try Stampin' On Tuesday that we hope will inspire you.
Optional Theme: Warm Drinks
Here's my card
I was able incorporate the optional theme of Warm Drinks onto my card. I started with the little coffee cup using Create-A-Smile's Coffee First stamp set. I stamped the coffee cup with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto white cardstock and added color with Copic markers - 100, YG91. I die cut the white cardstock with a My Favorite Things' Stitched Square STAX die-namics die. To add the patterned paper coffee cup sleeve, I stamped the image onto the patterned paper and fussy cut it. I stamped the heart onto a scrap of white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink ,added color with Copic marker R29 and fussy cut it. I glued the coffee cup sleeve and the heart in place. For the background, I started with some natural cardstock and Tim Holtz Collection/Stampers' Anonymous Layer Stencil Mini #3 (don't know where my regular sized stencil is - LOL!). I added color with the stencils and gathered twigs and ground espresso distress inks, applied with oval ink blending brushes. I moved the stencil around to add the splatters and coffee rings on the natural cardstock. I trimmed it down and cut the curve with Creative Memories' Jumbo Circle custom cutting system and the red blade. I stamped the sentiment using STAMPlorations' Hello, Coffee stamp set on some light teal cardstock and die cut it with a Sizzix circle die. I trimmed it to reflect the element on the sketch. I glued the pieces onto a kraft A2 card panel which was then adhered to a white A2 card base to complete my card.
We'd love to see how you're inspired by our sketch. Please add your creations to our gallery.
