Also Kat is giving away two $25 gift cards to the store and a flash prize of a Layered Coffee Cup Die and a "got coffee" sentiment die.
Kat Scrappiness released two awesome coffee themed dies recently and they are so much fun to create with. The first is a layered coffee cup die and the second is a "got coffee" sentiment die.
Here are the pictures of the two dies:
I had fun with these 2 dies and I created 1 gift bag and 3 cards with them.
The first project is the mini gift bag that I assembled using the
Kat Scrappiness Stitched Heart Tags Die. Thank you to Maria Russell for making a video showing how to make a mini gift bag from these dies. I decorated the front of the card using the 2 coffee dies
and splattered the aqua heart tag with some Ground Espresso Distress Ink. The stamped sentiment is from Technique Tuesday's Sassy Coffee stamp set and it is stamped onto a Stitched Flag Die that is new in the KS shop this month.
The next 2 cards feature the Layered Coffee Cup Die again with some fun colorful effects! The first card below with the pink cup was made using a pearlescent pink watercolor from the Kuretake Gansai Tambi pearl color set. It really stands out against the embossed background. I stamped a heart from the Swatches stamp set and heat embossed it in gold on the white cozy. I die cut the "coffee" word from the "got coffee" sentiment 3 times in 3 different colors to repeat down the side of the card. I finished off the card with some sparkly sequins from Kat's shop.
The second card has a distressed coffee stained background that I achieved by smooshing some Ground Espresso ink onto a piece of acetate and then spraying with water. I then smooshed the acetate against the cream colored paper to give the distressed coffee colored look. I love that effect! I stamped the star from the Swatches stamp set onto the cozy and then sent it through the paper crimper to give it a realistic look. Same die but two very different looks!
The last card I want to share with you is perfect for the Spring/Summer theme. It features a very colorful tropical setting with the cutest little Denami hula chickie on the front! I decorated the cup and the cozy with some flowers from My Favorite Things and the grass die is from Lawn Fawn. The super cute clouds are from Paper Smooches and the bright sun is from My Creative Time. I love how bright and cheery this card turned out and the Kat Scrappiness Layered Coffee Cup Die is the perfect large focal point!
