Saturday’s are meant for coffee!

The new Cup of Java Stamp Set by Penny Black is so perfect, and totally sums up how I feel today! 🙂 ….”Sometimes they just make coffee cups too small” -TOTALLY

Here are the steps to make this card and supplies will be listed at the end:

 

  1. Cut a piece of white card (my preference is Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth) to 4.5″ x 4.5″
  2. Using the large stripe from the Eat, Sleep Create Stamp Set by Catherine Pooler and the |Midnight Black Ink Pad, also by Catherine Pooler stamp out some horizontal lines for the background.
  3. Take a large Nuvo Glue Pen and add a rough edge border with the glue around the card, let the glue dry for about a minute.
  4. Apply Nuvo Gilding flakes in Gold onto the glue border and burnish off the excess.
  5. Cut a piece of Black Shimmering Pearl Cardstock slightly larger than the striped piece and affix together.
  6. Cut a coral bling cardstock slightly larger than the black and affix to a cardstock base, then affix the black piece to that.
  7. Stamp the Cup Of Java Stamp and sentiment and cut out.
  8. Colour the Stamp using Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers, glue to the bottom right of the card.
  9. Using a medium Nuvo Glue Pen add a border to the sentiment and apply the gold gilding flakes again, affix to the card using foam squares.

I hope you have enjoyed this card 🙂  go pour yourself a cup of java and have a great weekend!

Gold is beautiful! Foiling using Honey Bee Stamps

If you haven’t checked out Honey Bee Stamps you must! Their items are gorgeous and great quality.  In this card their Zen Floral was a perfect image to be gold foiled, and was very nicely complimented by gold glitter cardstock, and classic black & white stripe paper.
