Coffee is in the air!

Hello my crafty friends!

Today I am super excited to play with Newton’s Nook – Newton loves coffee stamp set! I’m a big fan of coffee and this stamp set is one of my favorite! It’s simply irresistably super cute!!!

This project was inspired by 2017 Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop (if you haven’t heard about it I have a link below in the “Challenges” section). But -like I usually do- I enjoy combining challenge themes so I decided to use the color palette of MFT Color Challenge and the sketch theme of Your Next Stamp Challenge!And here what I came up with!

Quick Instructions:

To create this card I stamped my image on white cardstock and colored it with Distress inks.Then I fussy cut it, traced it with a black sharpie and left it aside. I I cut the different pieces of paper to meet the requirements of the sketch challenge and marked lightly on the card panel in pencil where they would be placed. Next I stamped the background images all around using Distress inks. For the cups I used 2nd generation stamping to soften the impression of the stamp. Then I created a mask of the cat and placed it on my square panel, I applied red Distress ink with a blending tool all around it to create a halo around the place where I wanted my image to be (to help it stand out from the background). I stamped the little sentiment and then inked the edges of the patterned paper and adhered both pieces on my card panel. Next I die cut the word Coffee out of black cardstock. I inked the white banner using Peacock Feathers and die cut the word Coffee again making sure to keep all the tiny pieces ! I stamped the rest of the sentiment and the cup and adhered the piece on my card panel using double sided tape (it is important to place the tape along the diecut gaps as well!). Next I placed the black word in the gaps and carefully added the tiny teal left overs to fill in the diecut gaps. Last I adhered the cat image using double sided foam tape to add abit of dimension. And that completed my card!
