It’s National Coffee Day and we are celebrating at CASual Fridays with a blog hop. For my project today, I am showcasing the Hearts A2 Panel Fri-Die, Cup of Coffee stamp set, Coffee Cup Fri-Dies and the Coffee Talk stamp set. We have three prizes up for grabs so make sure to read at the end of the blog post for a chance to WIN.
To make this day even more fun, CASual Friday had put their entire COFFEE COLLECTION on Sale for 20% off. No coupon code needed. For further discount, you can avail my discount code “MARIASENTME” for 15% off.
To begin, I started by using a clouds stencil from my stash and inked up my background using different shades of distress oxide inks. I wanted some oranges and pinks as my background color to symbolize fall. I cut another piece of Bristol smooth white card stock and used the Hearts A2 panel fri-die. I set this die-cut aside so I can work on the other elements I need for my card.
I stamped the coffee cup from the cup of coffee stamp set on a brown patterned paper. I put this piece inside my MISTI stamping tool to stamp the sentiment from the coffee talk stamp set. I used Versamark ink and sprinkled some white embossing powder, and heat-set this with my heating tool.
I adhered the colored panel on an A2 size side-fold card base. I added the Hearts A2 background panel with liquid adhesive and started working on creating my scene. I used some fall leaves that I die-cut awhile ago from my stash and started layering them for some added texture and dimension.
Lastly, I used another die from my stash to die-cut the “whipped cream” and colored it lightly with my alcohol markers. I foam-mounted this piece onto my card.
I really LOVE how this card turned out. The white sentiment on the coffee cup stood out and the colors of the leaves complimented the colored background. Here’s a little close-up:
I hope you like my card today. Here are the details for the giveaway:
