Thanks a Latte

Hi Friends!

I had a chance to create another card using the Special Blend stamp set from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps.

This is such a sweet stamp set and has so many beautiful sentiments and images.  Perfect for many occasions!

If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge sites or the SNSS Blog/FB Page yet, I encourage you to do so- gorgeous inspiration from all!

To create this card:

1). De-static two pieces of white cardstock with an embossing powder tool, stamp the cup with the bird image and the “Thanks a Latte” sentiment from Special Blend  with archival black ink onto the panels, apply clear embossing and heat set with a heat tool.

2). Die cut the stacked cup image with a stitched rectangle die and color the image using water-based markers.  Mount the image onto turquoise cardstock and trim close to the die cut edge.

3). Trim the sentiment by hand and create the banner using a punch or by hand.  Mount onto turquoise cardstock and trim close to the edge.

4). Die cut another piece of white cardstock using a stitched rectangle die, stencil Tumbled Glass Distress Ink onto the panel as well as the tea cup image and sentiment. Mount the main panel onto turquoise cardstock, trim close to the edge, mount onto pumpkin cardstock and mount onto the white card base.

5). Die cut a few pieces of designer paper with rectangle stitched dies, mount onto turquoise cardstock.  Add the white tea lace doily and the designer stitched panels onto the card front.

6).  Adhere the sentiment with dimensional foam and add the button along with the pearls.

7). To finish off the card, use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the bird and cup and an Extra Fine White Paint Pen to add white highlights to the center of the flower and around the base of the teacup.
