Fall is in the air! Hello to crisp mornings and leaves turning their brilliant, beautiful colors! Welcome to our blog hop and definitely a favorite theme for me! Not a day goes by without many cups of coffee…. and if there is chocolate in our home, I will be inhaling it! My favorite drink has recently become Matcha Lattes, so so good.
Card #1 ~ Miss You!
Card #2 ~ Vintage Teacups
Card #3 ~ Coffee and a Cinnamon Stick
Card #4 ~ Coffee to Keep You Warm
This border stamp is a definite favorite! The many shapes of coffee cups are incredible. Theseare the steps to create this card. 1. Stamp the image with green ink and heat emboss with clear powder. 2. Watercolor images with various green and brown colors. 3. Using a crimping tool, run a strip of kraft through it and adhere to card front. This is to resemble corrugated hand protectors on coffee cups! 4. Die cut shape with heavyweight vellum. 5. Stamp the sentiment on pattern paper and die cut with the same shape as the vellum. Trim off the top and bottom. 6. Add a copper brad to the sentiment and glue down to the kraft strip. 7. Glue card front to a kraft card base.
