Caffeinated Card | Rise and Grind

Hello hello hello everyone… We are jumping from Spring to Summer here where I live. In the morning, I love this season transition moment, especially when to rise up in the morning and grind some of the fresh coffee beans.

Today, I have a coffee card to share with you all. My card is inspired by the challenge photo from the CUTplorations June Challenge at STAMPlorations blog:

I created that background using Zen Coffee 2 Cover Plate Die – CUTplorations. I added Stick-It Adhesive Sheet on a piece of Darice Blue cardstock and then I cut it using my Gemini Jr machine.

After that, I peeled off the adhesive backing paper off and then I added it on a white card stock.

On a piece of watercolor paper, I created the watercolor wash with smooshing technique using Catherine Pooler ink pad and water. After that, I dried it with craft paper. I sprinkled it with some water and dabbed it off with paper towel to get the distress/marble-ly look. Then, I cut it with the same plate die and then using only the negative cut to fill the cup with permanent adhesive glue.

Carefully, I colored the inside of the cup with brown watercolor paint and small water brush. I saved the rest of the cut out for future project.

I added one of the sentiment from the Just Caffeinate – STAMPlorations Clear Stickers on the cup.

I stamped several butterflies from the Fluttery – STAMPlorations 5×7 Stamp Club Collection December 2017 on a watercolor paper with VersaFine Onyx Black ink pad.

I colored the butterflies with Tombow Dual Brush Pens and blended the colors with small water brush. Then, I dried them with craft heater.

I cut 2 of the butterflies with micro-tip scissors. I added them on the card with permanent adhesive and a small piece of 3D foam tape under the wings for extra dimension.

I love how this card turned out and I hope you all will like it, too. And not it’s your turn to create a project and share it with us.
