On Saturday I always make something with a Michael Strong
stamp. I am so happy Mike also has made coffee stamps!
You find them here.
Now I play on with the fox theme too.
So this is what I did:
Starting out with plain white cardstock
and printed the sentiments, leaving a gap for
the stamping.The top sentence I just typed up,
but the bottom sentiments are by
So then icut the sheet in two and have two cards in the making.
I watergolored the background with bundled sage distress ink.
Stamped the large coffee cup on green with versamark and
embossed it with copper embossing powder. The fox
is made with the Stampin'Up! foxy friend punch.
Now to make the flowers, I came up with a fun idea using
my used nespresso capsules. I cut the top of and trew away the coffee
and am left with the metal capsule. How great they come in
So I took out a flower punch and punched some
flowers out of the metal, which is quite soft and easy to punch.
With this punch comes a kind of embossing punch. Here you lay the
punched out flower and press the sides together and it becomes a wonderful 3d flower.
I have them already for quite some time and no idea if you can still get
this floral & emboss punch set.
Here another view of the flowers.
For the other card, I used the smaller size cups.
You also see some stamping on the background. This is from the
Stampin'Up! set Foxy friends.
In the background I used the sequins I won in the last blog hop.
I love them!
Hope you all have enjoyed my post for the
Coffee Lovers Blog Hop today. You find more
information about the hop here and how to play along.
Thank you for looking
and enjoy your cup of coffee/tea.
