Back again with a couple more cards inspired by the Fall | Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.
Maybe a month or so ago, I pulled all my coffee, tea and cocoa stamps from my various stamp bins and put them all together. I’m so thankful for this challenge as it’s given me a reason to use those stamps, which I was kinda surprised to see how many I had amassed over time.
I really wanted to make a chalkboard inspired card so I pulled out the Warm Wishes stamp from Neat & Tangled. I heat embossed it with white embossing powder on a panel die-cut from white cardstock. And then, the magic happened. I slowly applied black ink to the panel with a sponge. It is amazing. The more ink you add, the more chalky it looks. But the white background helps keep it feeling chalkboard’ish.
Once I covered the panel with ink, I buffed the embossed image with a paper towel and spritz on some diluted white paint (with a spray bottle).
I wanted more of a rustic feel for this card so I used a bunch of paper scraps with a more vintage feel.
I liked the card so much that I made a second one. This time, I went with a blue color scheme.
One thing I did a little different was add a few drops of Glossy Accents to the Warm Wishes panel and dump some glass glitter on to them.
I kinda sorta dig the look. Definitely going to do that again before Winter is over on a few cards. 🙂
Alright! That is it for me today.
Don’t forget to check out the hop if you haven’t already. So many awesome projects have been uploaded so far. Great job, guys! The hop runs through the 7th.
Be back again tomorrow.
