I couldn’t resist squeezing in one more card for the Fall | Winter 2018 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.
Meet today’s card.
This guy may look all clean and simple, but know it took quite awhile to put it together. All that coloring. Correction. All that FUN coloring! Wink!
The little coffee cups (as well as the words and the wand) are from a couple stamp sets from Studio L2E. If you haven’t been to their website, I encourage you to go…. fast… and see all their fun stuff. I am particularly fond of the wizard-inspired stamp sets.
For the card, I stamped the cup three times on cardstock. I colored them in with markers and fussy cut them out with my scissors. Then…. there’s always a then…. I added a few drops of Glossy Accents to the eye glasses! It’s subtle, but the end result is super cool.
The little bear was stamped and die-cut with a stamp set (and matching dies) from Ellen Hutson. His little arms just needed to be holding something… thus, he ended up with his very own wizard-style coffee cup. Forget realism when it comes to my cards. All things are cool when you stamp, right?
The little stars were stamped with a star from a stamp set from Sunny Studio Stamps.
Alright, friends. It’s late. I’m tired and I can’t possibly type another word. My ability to form a clear sentence is lacking. If you haven’t checked out the the hop yet, please do. So many amazing cards!
I’l be back again later.
I’m back again with another card. This one just happened the other day when I was messing around with my small stash of Studio L2E stamps.
Haven’t heard of Studio L2E? I’d totally encourage you to check them out. If you are a planner, Studio L2E has created lots of planner stamps that are just awesome. Not a planner? They have lots of planner and non-planner stamps that can be used on all kinds of craft projects. Some of that I have really geeked out over, especially, are the wizard-inspired ones: Wizard Life, Wizard Weekly and Planner Wizards: Tiffy + K.
Today’s card features some of those stamps. Let’s take a look.
I started this card by stamping six of the wizard coffee cups on cardstock and then coloring them in with markers. I fussy them out with my scissors. The cool thing is that the cup is really easy to cut. If you are fussy cut challenged, don’t be intimidated by this cup.
I created the white mat and gray scalloped mat with the help of a couple dies from My Favorite Things. I stacked them on top of each and adhered them to my card. Before I adhered the cups to the card, I placed a sticky note on it and sponged a little black ink on it and below it. This created the shadow you see under the the cups.
I felt like the cups needed a little extra “magic” to I stamped a wand (from the Wizard Weekly stamps) for the top one. I added a little sparkle to the middle of the wand with some glitter glue and then I added a bunch of dots around it with glitter glue and white Nuvo Crystal Drops.
I completed the card with the Espresso Patronum sentiment (from the Planner Wizards: Tiffy + K stamp set). It felt like it was the just perfect way to complete this little card.
Alright. That’s it for me. I’ll be back later, friends.
Thanks for stopping by.
