Awesome Coffee Cards

Hello crafters, thanks for visiting my blog.  March has arrived in Montana and we are seeing some lovely spring weather (and the snow is almost gone already- except in the high mountains of course!)  We here at the TRS design team are making coffee themed cards using the new stamp set, Awesome Coffee.  Though the weather seems to be shifting, I still want my coffee hot, so my cards reflect that!  I made two cards because I made an alcohol ink rainbow background on Yupo paper and cut it in half for two backgrounds.  Here are my cards:

The first card I made by stamping the coffee cup and sleeve onto some mottled light tan card stock from my stash, that I also used for the card base.  I used the "kissing" technique to transfer a stamp pattern onto the sleeve, then stamped the sentiment shadow in a darker shade of teal, then stamped and embossed the sentiment in black.  I used my Copic markers to create shading, then I fussy cut out the image.  Next I die cut the background Yupo paper using a Deckle die from Spellbinders.  I foiled the next layer.  It is a toner graphic image on card stock by Creative Vision Stamps called Foilables.  There are several patterns to choose from.  I foiled this one using bright blue foil.  I adhered the layers, drew in the surface the cup was on, and stamped the 4 point stars in the stamp set in purple, then placed light purple gems from Hero Arts in the centers.

For the second card, I started by stamping then embossing the coffee bean rings.  I arranged them like a rainbow.  Next I stamped the coffee cup and sleeve on two different patterned papers from the 6 x 6 bundle called Lively by Authentique.  Again I used some light brown Copic markers to create the shading on both elements after I had stamped the sentiment and shadow.  I then fussy cut both out. Next I stamped the coffee cup lid on shimmery black card stock in Versamark ink, then used some silver embossing powder, heat set it, then fussy cut it out.  I adhered all 3 pieces together, then used some dimensional foam squares to pop the cup up off the Yupo panel.  Next I die cut a frame from MFTs in white, then adhered those pieces onto a layer of orange card stock, then adhered that to a white A2 top folding card base. 

These cards were pretty quick and simple to make, since my cards are usually more complex with lots of Copic coloring or water-coloring, which takes more time.  I'm enjoying the paper piecing that I've done on my last couple of cards.  It's a good way to use up your scraps or just use the loads of patterned paper we all have laying around.  Plus it looks pretty cool too and saves time!  I hope you enjoyed my cards.  Don't forget you can join in on our theme if you have the Awesome Coffee stamp set only available at the Three Room Studio website.  Post your creations on IG using #trscardchallenge or post on FB at Three Room Studio's Fourth Room.  You'll also have the opportunity to see the other DT cards while you visit the sites.

Come see me again soon with my next post.  I really appreciate you visiting.  Hopefully I help your creative process as well. 

Craft creatively my friends!
