Hello, Coffee


Well, I've done it again - I'm posting another coffee/tea themed project today. Like I mentioned in an earlier post, I had only made one for each day, but then I saw this beautiful freebie from Stamplorations and wanted to give it a whirl! It turned out a little more "Hawaiian" in color than I started out to make, but you can't say it's not bright and cheery! (smile!)



Here's how I created this card:
  • Printed the free digital stamp Hello, Coffee (Stamplorations) on watercolor paper
  • Colored my image with Prismacolor Pencils and after blending them added a few highlights with watercolor markers
  • After fussy cutting,I stamped the Scrip Background Stamp (Stampin' Up) over it in Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide (Ranger)
  • Embossed a piece of white card stock with the Kitchen Weave embossing folder from Cuttlebug
  • Die cut a paper doily using the Hello Doily die set from Sizzix
  • Die cut the sentiment from Sentiments Five dies (Spellbinders)
  • Added a pink ribbon bow
  • Punched a strip of white paper with the Butterfly Trim border punch (Martha Stewart) and fussy cut two for my card adding pearls to the center of the larger one
