Stamping and sewing today!
Had to use my new Club Scrap coffee stamps
and the new material that arrived
yesterday as a gift from D.Ann from the Coffee Lovers
Winter Blog hop.
The material arrived in a plastic bag and was soaking wet.
I think the mail man dropped it in a puddle. the card
is ruined, but I dryed the material and it is ready for use.
I want to use it for a quilt I intend to make in coffee colors
and i have been saving soe materials:
Here you see the ones I have already.I need to start
looking for a pattern and to see if this is enough.
I cut the materialinto a square and had just the right
left overs for the sewing i wanted to do today: making
one of those coffee mug caddies I have seen aound.
Wanted a free template, but could not find one,
so I just made up my own.
(click on the picture for alarger view).
I started out cutting 3 layers of 8x11 inch of material.
Decorated materialfor the outside, a lyer of fleece in between
and a plain piece for the back.
For the pockets I cut one pice of 7 x 15 inch and folded it
lengthwise dubble. As my cup is not that big, I created
4 pockets. Before sewing this to the background, I added
the cups on each pocket from the material I receives.
Of course this is the first one and just some experimenting
with how to add the pockets, and cover the ends etc.
Closing it by a button and a bow around the handle
of the mug.
And this is how it looks finished. I am quite happy with
the result and think I will make another one. it is a great gift
for crafting friends.
Will look great on my table,but also next to m on the
couch or my computer.
And now a more close up to the card:
For this card I also use the weathered clock die
from Tim Holtz and a coffee stain embossing folder
on the yellow background.
The stamps came also with this wonderful paper
and I wanted to keep this for scapbooking, so for my card
I used some of the scraps from different Club Scrap
kits I have in a box.
I stamped this on the brown paper with versamark and embossed
it with white embossing powder. The little clock embellishment
is from one of the older Club Scrap kits and was just
perfect touse here.
On many cards these days I see these sequins and I just happen
to have thes tiny orange ones to add to the card.
And the mugs are covered with clossy accent to
give them a more ceramic look. I used a white
gelly pen to make the steam white.
And now it is time to do some cooking n the kitchen.
Thank you for looking and always leaving such
