Coffee Lovers Blog hop - Card 2

Hi there!  Thanks for stopping by to check out my latest card for the Coffee Lovers Blog hop!  You can link up, hop along and find all the details HERE.


I am using images from two different Polka Dot Orchard digital stamp sets, She Said Tea and He Said Coffee.

Let's check out my card shall we?


Vintage isn't my normal style but these images just spoke to me and seemed like the perfect fit!  I also couldn't resist making another slimline card.

I changed the color of the images to be a dark brown, sized them down and printed them out onto Neenah Solar White cardstock.  I used the smallest die from Trinity Stamps Scalloped Card Panels set to cut out the image layer.  I mounted it onto a piece of dark brown cardstock just slightly larger than the white piece.  

I also changed the color of the sentiment (from She Said Tea) and printed it onto Neenah cardstock.  I took a scrap piece of the white cardstock and colored it using the Trinity blending brush and Walnut Stain Distress Oxide ink.  I cut the white piece down with my cutter and glued it to the Walnut Stain piece.  I put a bit of foam tape on the back and adhered it to the card.

I set that panel aside and got to work on the rest.  I used a digital paper from Graciellie Design and printed it out onto Neenah cardstock.  I cut it down to 8 3/4" x 3 1/2".  I grabbed the Trinity blending brush and Walnut Stain ink pad and went around all of the edges.  I found some natural colored twine in my stash I wanted to use but it was a little too bright for my taste.  I just used the blending brush and the Walnut Stain ink and ran it over the twine.  I only wanted to make it look a bit distressed so I didn't add tons of color.  I wrapped it around the coffee paper three times and used tape on the back to hold it in place.

I created a dark brown card base that measuere 8 3/4" x 3 3/4" when folded.  I added foam tape to the back of the coffee paper before adding it to the brown base.  I also added foam tape to the white panel before adding it to the card.

I felt the white panel was too "clean" so I splattered on some of the Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  I just smooshed some onto and acrylic block, added water and grabbed a paint brush.  To finish up the card I added a few drops of Dark Walnut Nuvo Crystal drops.




Thanks for stopping at my little crafty corner of the web!
