For my final catchup post of the day, I made another mini-sllimline card. I decided to use bright, happy colours this time. I got out a very old Kaisercraft stamp set called High Tea to make this card. The mini-slimline size dictated that I make my stack of teacups higher to make the card look balanced. Luckily the masking required was very minimal to make this happen. I Copic coloured the teacups and then went looking for patterned paper. The Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid 6 X 6 pad was a perfect match for the colour scheme. As a final touch I added some variegated twine that I recently got in a Hero Arts kit and added some colourful Nuvo drops.
Here is the card:
This is my second post of the day. While looking through my box of Coffee Themed stamps and dies, I came across an unused stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop. I am always on the hunt for new coffee images between bloghops and I think I got this one in a sale from Simon Says Stamp.
The stencil is 6 X 6 but I wanted to make a regular slimline card. With a little masking, I was able to re-arrange the images from the stencil into a different configuration more suitable for a slimline card. The paper is once again my all time favourite Americano from Ciao Bella. The Rise and Grind stacked sentiment is part of my prize from Stamplorations that I won in the last bloghop. Finally, I used Nuvo embellishment mousse in Burnished Bronze through the stencil for dimension in the coffee cup, rays and stars.
Take a look:
I am trying to catch up to my goal of posting a card for every day of the bloghop. I just don’t have any energy left after work on Mondays and Tuesdays to post cards. We (staff at the scrapbook store) are all very grateful that the store is thriving in these trying times but I do come home exhausted. What that means is that I will probably have three blog posts today!
For today’s card, I wanted to feature a sentiment die that I got from Stamplorations (thanks again Sherry Russ) as a prize in the last bloghop. I paired it with one of my favourite coffee Images from the Sponsored by Coffee stamp set from Picket Fence. The background was made using a Coffee Stencil from Casual Fridays that I also won in a previous bloghop. I put all these elements together on a mini slimline cardbase which is becoming very popular.
