I am so excited to be hopping with Paper Smooches and the rest of the Design Team at Coffee Loving Cardmakers today! If you arrived here from Robyn's blog then you are on track. If not, head on over to the Paper Smooches blog so you don't miss out on any of the fun along the way. And here is the rest of the line-up just in case you get lost:
Coffee Loving Cardmakers
Lori Turner (you are here!)
For my first card, I used the oh-so-fun set called "Caffeinated" and I will definitely be using this set, along with the matching dies, a lot in the future! SO FUN!
I used the iced coffee/tea die and cut it out of the black front layer then secured it over top of the white card base in my Misti and stamped the image inside the die cut hole so it would match up. I then stamped the image again on the polka dot yellow paper and fussy cut it out. I used Copics to color in the straw to match the designer paper.
I then stamped the "cute tea" sentiment from the "Caffeinated Two" set onto the same yellow polka dot paper and mounted it on the black front panel and used dimensionals to pop up the entire black panel for some added dimension.
Be sure to comment along the way for your chance to win a $25.00 gift certificate to the PS store...you can get yourself some of these fun goodies to play with :)
For my second card, I used the other coffee cup from the Caffeinated set and the "err mah gerd" sentiment is again from the Caffeinated Two stamp set...makes me giggle every time I hear this saying hahaha ... when coffee tastes good, I say it - A LOT! ;)
I did a bit of paper piecing for the sleeve of the cup to tie it into the bottom layer designer paper...so fun!
