Videos: Caffeine Cards

hug mug2.jpgHello and Happy Sunday! I’m back with my weekly video and blog post.  For today, I created two caffeine themed cards to celebrate the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop that is going on right now!  We are a Super Sponsor so make sure you check out this post (our post) and the official blog for more information including giveaway opportunities!

For my first card today, I used our Hug in a Mug stamp set to create a fun shaker card!  Please enjoy the video 🙂

First I stamped the mug on an A2 sized panel in our Caviar Hybrid Ink.  Then I took the solid stamp within the set and stamped the insides of the mug using our new Cocoa Collection inks (Warm Hazelnut Dye, Found Topaz Dye and Aspen Cocoa Dye).  Then I stamped all the foam art within the mugs with our Hampton White Pigment Ink.  To give the mugs a bit more depth, I heat embossed the edges of the inside of the mug with some white pearl embossing powder. I also colored the outside edges of the mug with copic markers (C5, BG70 and C1) to ground them onto the panel. Then I took the adorable mini heart stamp in our Purrincess set and stamped them all over the panel with our Warm Hazelnut Dye ink.

Next I die cut the shaker window with our new Double Stitched Round dies.  I filled the window with our Toasted Almonds 5mm, Burnt Caramel 4mm, Dulce 6mm and Creamy Toffee 10mm sequins.  I topped it all off with some bright silver mini stars!

Next up is my Tea Party card!! I especially love how this one turned out because of the gorgeous blue and gold color combination.

I started off by stamping the sentiment (Caffeine Crush) on an angle with our Light Onyx Dye ink.  Then I stamped the border from our Tribal Chic Borders set above and below the sentiment.  I masked the borders and sentiment with some washi tape and then stamped the teacups in Versamark ink over the entire panel. Next, I heat embossed the teacups with gold embossing powder (take the washi off before you heat your panel).

Then I stamped the insides of the teacup with the floral print stamp in our new Sky Blue Collection inks. I also stamped the base and handles with the coordinating inks. I then die cut the middle portion of the panel out with the second largest die in our Double Stitched Rectangle die set.  I adhered the border right onto a side folding A2 cardbase and popped the middle panel up with some foam tape.  I finished off the card by adhering some light blue rhinestones.

That’s all for today! Make sure you follow us on Youtube to catch all of our videos! Thank you all for stopping by and see you next week 🙂
