Hello hello hello everyone… Happy Friday! I hope you all have been having amazing week… Today, I join a collaboration blog hop with Coffee Loving Cardmakers and STAMPlorations. And… I have coffee and tea themed projects to share with you all.
On my first cards, I use the new Zen Coffee Coffee 2 Cover Plate Die – CUTplorations and Heartfelt Thanks Stamp Set to create these monochromatic cards. It is easy and quick cards to make.
For the background, I created the watercolored backgrounds with smooshing technique using Catherine Pooler’s Ink Pads and water. After that, I cut them with the cover plate die. I used spray-glue on this intricate die-cuts. Other ways to add intricate die-cuts on card is that you can add the double-sided tape – such as Stick It, or Scor-Tape, or Silhouette Adhesive Sheet (or others that thin enough for cut) – on the back of the cardstock before cutting it with dies.
I stamped the sentiment on piece of vellum with VersaFine Clair Ink Pads and dried it with craft heater. I added them on the front of the card with dries-clear adhesive glue and I cut the extra from the edge of the cards.
On my second card, I used the Cup of Bloom 3 Stamp Set, Always Tea Time Stamp Set, and Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies – CUTplorations.
I stamped the cup on a piece of watercolor paper with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink Pad and colored it with ADORNit Watercolor Cakes and waterbrush. I added some gold splatters on it using one FineTec Gold Palette. I dried the panel with craft heater and then cut it with the largest size of Crazy Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies. I added it on card with the Scrapbook Adhesives E-Z Runner® Grand.
I stamped the one of the sentiments from the Always Tea Time Stamp Set with Purple Delight VersaFine Clair Ink Pad on a white cardstock, cut it into banner, and I added on the card with 3D foam tape.
