Really excited to take part in my first EVER blog hop!! The Coffee Lovers Hop. I had great fun making it.
The theme is a caffeinated element. So both my favourite things, I could not have had a more perfect theme. Coffee and card making a perfect Saturday afternoon in Lockdown.
Full details regarding the Coffee Lovers Blog hop are available here
The full video tutorial is available here Mrs H's Crafty Corner
What I Used
A6 Card Base - cream
Plain White Card 200gsm
Dovecraft Clear Embossing Ink pad
Anti Static Pad
Papermania Clear Embossing powder
Coffee Break Stamp and die set (Simply Cards and Papercraft Magazine Issue 177)
Distress Ink - Bundled Sage
Distress Ink - Dusty Concord
Spectrum Noir Harmony Ink Pad - Smoked Pearl
Double Sided Tape
Sizzix Big Shot Die Cutting Machine
Spectrum Noir Tri-blend Alcohol Marker - dusty purple
Cut a piece of white card to 10.5 cm (4 1/8 Inch) by 14cm ( 51/2 Inch)
Dust the card with the anti static bag
Using the take away coffee cup.stamp from the coffee break stamps and die set, stamp the image in 3 places on the card using embossing ink.
Blend the image with the Bundled Sage Distress Ink
Then blend over the top with the dusty Concord distress ink and secure to the A6 card base in landscape.
I took a fresh piece of card and stamped the cup and saucer in Spectrum Noir Smoked Pearl Ink
A small piece of white card was then blended with Bundled Sage distress ink on one half and Smoked Pearl Spectrum Noir Harmony ink on the other side
The tag and steam dies were cut out using the Sizzix Big Shot and glued to the cup and saucer. See picture below for placement
Using foam pads this is then fastened to the card
To finish, glossy accents are used on the fluid inside the cup to give the impression of fluid.
