  • Espresso Bean Owl

    A cute little owl card for that special someone who loves coffee & espresso. Super easy to make & fits in wonderfully with the coffee themed paper pack. Perfect for birthday, Mother’s or Father’s Day!

    It’s my turn to host the Featured Stamper Challenge (FS889), so a big congrats to Shelly! She has a really fun gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the owl & coffee theme, but changed the layout a bit, used different images, dies, paper & colors.

    After coloring & die cutting this cute little owl, I used a mini slimline die to cut the narrow ivory panel & stamped the greeting onto it. A dark chocolate layer was added behind it & I popped it up a bit off of the coffee paper background.

    A few stitched hearts in several sizes were die cut out of the same brown & also popped up a bit.
    Here are the Copics I used for the little owl:

  • Christmas Coffee Cats

    A super cute Christmas kitty & coffee card using some bright colors & cheerful paper. Perfect card for a friend w/ cats or who loves their coffee.

    A big congrats to Dawn, the newest Featured Stamper (FS879)! She has a wonderful little gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the angled layout & coffee theme, but used different images & dies, different colors & made mine a Christmas card.

    After coloring & die cutting the kitty, coffee cups & Christmas tree cupcake, I die cut a lg white panel then used a scallop frame die to cut the bottom off at an angle. I added a piece of colorful Christmas paper on the bottom section. I wanted a little more of the red scallop frame (the same die I used for the angled edge) to show a bit more, so I used a small corner rounder on all the corners. In case you didn’t know about this, here’s a little tip for coloring in small dots like on my cupcake & the coffee cups. When those dots are little & in a sea of the opposite color, it can be hard to keep that color from bleeding into those little dots. I figured out that if I color in the little dots first, then go over them w/ a clear Glaze pen (Sakura), it helps keep the larger colored area from seeping into those dots.

    The kitty & cups were popped up a bit for a little dimension. Here are the Copics I used:

    A big congrats to Betty, the newest Featured Stamper! She has a terrific gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the layout w/ the little balloon overhead, but used different images, dies & colors & made mine a Halloween theme instead of get well.

    After coloring & die cutting the big ghost coffee cup, I stamped the other 2 ghosts on a large panel & colored in the Halloween greeting,  The balloon was die cut, stamped w/ the Boo word bubble then colored. The ghost cup & balloon were popped up a little on top of the background.
