Coffee Loving Cardmakers Guest Designer

Hello again Coffee Loving friends!
I'm excited to be sharing my second and last 
guest designer post this month over on 
A big thank you to Amy for having me!
I have enjoyed sharing my cards on their blog this month.

Today I have a card using one of my favorite coffee themed stamps.
It's called Love To Go from Unity Stamp Company.
I just love the whimsical style of this stamp, it really lends itself
to watercolors and that's exactly what I used.

  • To begin with I die cut a panel of cream colored card stock with the largest die from the  Wonky Wavy Stitched Rectangle dies from Kat Scrappiness.  Then I ran it through my Vagabond with a script embossing folder and adhered it to a light teal card base.
  • The next step was to stamp the coffee cup on to some watercolor paper and use Distress Inks to fill in the cup with a fine tip brush.
  • Once the watercoloring was done, I used a smaller die from the Wonky Wavy Stitched Rectangle dies again to cut it out. Before I matted that panel on to the same color as the card base, I tied some twine around the bottom of it. I then adhered it on an angle to the card base.
  • The last step was to die cut some cream card stock with the Stitched Flag dies from Kat Scrappiness and stamp my sentiment in dark brown ink. I matted that flag with a larger one in the same teal color as the card base. I popped it up on foam tape above the coffee cup and my card was done.

Thanks so much for joining me today!
