Winter 2017 Coffee Loving Blog Hop Day 4: Java Merry Christmas

My card today I created using the adorable Christmas Mugs stamp set from Pink and Main, one of the Super Sponsors for this blog hop.

I stamped the candies directly on the card with the London Fog – Memento DewDrop ink to create the background.

With this stamp set, you cannot resist to not color them 🙂 So, I pull out my Arteza Real Brush Pens and Spectrum Noir Sparkle Brush Pen to color those mugs.

First I stamped them on 2 watercolor paper panels with Versafine Onyx Black using Mini MISTI to get bold line. Then I colored them with the real brush pens and used the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Brush Pen to get the watercolor look and glitter at the same time.

I fussy cut out the little mug with micro tip scissors. And the other one with the taller mug, I die cut it using one of the Fancy Frames from Craftin Dessert Divas, which is also one of the Super Sponsors.

I die cut it again to create one more layer of mat for the card. I added the first mat on the card with adhesive, then the second I added some fun foam behind it and then I added it on the card with adhesive.

I added the second cup with 3D foam tape, bit overlapping it with the taller mug.

For the sentiment, I stamped it on a white cardstock with Rhubarb Stalk Memento DewDrop, and cut it into paper strips. I added it on the card with adhesive.

That’s I how I created this card for this Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day 3. You still have time until this Friday, December 15th to link up your projects here and by linking up, you have chances to win the giveaway prizes!
