Hello and welcome back to my blog! It's my day up on the Coffee Loving Cardmaker's blog and I have a fun card to share with you today!
The truth about today's card is that I had absolutely no plan when I started making it.
I was playing around with some Color Burst powders by Ken Oliver after a video I had seen on You Tube.
Before I knew it I had a very colorful blue and purple background on watercolor paper and I thought a text stamped background would really look good on it. I recently purchased the Tracey Hey stamp set "No Words" and it came with the perfect sized text stamp.
Here's the panel after I cut out the elements for my card:
Once I had the panel stamped I used the Embossed Edge Heart Dies from Kat Scrappiness to cut out 2 different sized hearts for my card.
Now let me just say that at this point I still had no direction for this card... 😂
I did however think I wanted to turn it into a coffee themed card for today's post so I took out one of my favorite coffee dies from an older company that went out of business.
I used a coffee cup die from Top Dog Dies and I used the blue and purple panel I made to cut out the koozie for the cup.
For the background on my card I used the same text stamp from the colorful panel and I stamped it randomly over the card smudging the black ink here and there to give it a more grungy look.
To finish off my card I die cut the word coffee from the CAS-ual Friday's Coffee Cup Dies 3 times and added some colorful jewels from Kat Scrappiness in Dark Blue and Purple.
This was definitely a different style card than I'm used to making but I had a lot of fun playing around with no particular plan.
