Hello and welcome to my blog!
Twice a month on Tuesdays I welcome you into my ICU where I share my caffeinated projects for the Coffee Loving Cardmakers. You see here on my blog, ICU is actually short for the "Intensive Coffee Unit" so it's an ICU that someone just might want to hang out in!
Today I have a special treat to share with you.
I used a digital image from a company called The Paper Nest Dolls for my card.
The Paper Nest Dolls is an online stamp shop that carries the most adorable doll stamps that are hand drawn by the owner of the shop. She fashions the dolls after her children and they are super sweet. The image that I used is actually a digital image and those images can be found here → Paper Nest Dolls Digital Images.
The image I chose to used for today's card is called Avery with Coffee (without glasses).
Here she is printed out before and after I colored her up with my Copic markers.
Digital images are a lot of fun to use because you can print them out in any size you want. I print the images out with my laster printer so I can use my Copic markers to color them and the ink won't smear.
I just fell in love with this adorable little girl and all her curls.
I decided to use one of my favorite Coffee dies from Kat Scrappiness called the Layered Coffee Cup die to anchor my cute little doll on my card. I wanted my coffee cup to have a matching heart on it like on Avery's cup so I used a small stitched heart from the Flip Flop die set from My Creative Time.
I cut it out using Berry Sorbet card stock from Papertrey Ink. The notebook paper under the coffee cup is from a patterned paper pack called Pencil Me In also from Papertrey Ink. I'm currently obsessed with that paper pack! The stitched edging around the patterned paper is from the Stitched Rectangle Dies from Kat Scrappiness, I cut the kraft paper with that die as well.
I got my sentiment from an older MFT stamp set called a la modes Miss You a Latte and I stamped it in Berry Sorbet ink to match the stitched heart on the coffee cup.
As with all my cards I always feel the need to add a few embellishments for some extra interest so I made a small bow with some Lawn Fawn Aquamarine twine using the Bow Easy.
I saw a video the other day where someone made a bow using the Bow Easy and they made it look so easy! I knew I just had to have one! Lucky for me the Stamp Simply Ribbon store had one in stock. It's an older item and I wasn't sure if I'd be able to find it.
What card would be complete without 3 cute little Teal Jewels from Kat Scrappiness. Seriously those jewels are some of my favorite embellishments!
Here's one more look at my card with all of the great products I used to make it!
It never fails to amaze me how many products can go into one card! I loved making this card!
Thanks for joining me today in my ICU!
Have a great day, I already am!
