Card 3 for Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Not the card I planned for today, but don't you love it when technology forces you to have to re-work things?? (Giveaway NOW CLOSED)

Day 1 Post for an extra entry is HERE
Day 2 Post for an extra entry is HERE

Link to the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is HERE


Even after the official coffee hop is over, please keep checking back since I have a couple more projects I want to make and they will count for extra entries.

Consequently my colouring (which I haven't done in months and months) isn't quite the way I wanted it.  The paper is from the Echo Park Coffee themed paper pad and sentiment is by Ink Road.

Now I said I'd make a card featuring the crazy little chihuahua that's also in the giveaway.  I love Katzelkraft images, but they don't come mounted (at least not the ones I have).

 

This isn't an issue since you can buy sheets of stamp mounting foam from anywhere that sells stamps and tools.  It's sticky on one side which adheres to the rubber, and the other side is the cling foam we use with the usual acrylic block or MISTI.

If you don't have any, I can mount the winner's stamp on cling foam for you before posting.  Just let me know if you win him!


I used a mask and some Colour Burst paste on kraft cardstock for a background and let it dry while I coloured that little doge with Copic Markers.  Kinda sucky, but it was contingency plans all the way!  The shimmery duochrome effect of the paste is gorgeous though!


I just added some pattered paper and mounted the image on pop dots.  Pretty simple!  Once my gold Heidi Shine shows up again, I'll add some ink splatters, perhaps.  It really is a very bare card for me!

  2. Your chihuahua card is too funny like the sentiment. I love the pattern papers and your background is amazing! Beautiful colors!!!
    My favourite coffee desserts are ice cream and a typical Italian dessert called Tartufo, it's a kind of ice cream dessert.

  12. Hmmm, that chihuahua has probably already had too much coffee...but that's just my opinion! Hilarious card..and I love the shiny dotted background. My favorite drink is just french roast coffee with no sugar, and hot milk. Simple and the perfect go-with for decadent desserts.
