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!

Bunnies aren’t just for Easter!

So, I’m totally not a plan ahead card maker…I know what stamp I want to use and it just goes from there.  So I knew I wanted to use the Bunny Friends Stamp by Penny Black, but that is all I knew, but, I love how this one turned out!

  1. First I Stamped the Image using Catherine Pooler Midnight Black Ink, and then coloured using Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers.
  2. I trimmed the card down to make even edge widths on the side and a decent amount left blank at the top.
  3. Who has the We R Memory Keepers Laser Square?! It is totally one of my favorite tools as my eyes never seem to see a straight line! So, I took the My Favorite Things Die-Namics Big Birthday die, lined it up, stuck it down with a little washi tape and ran it through my Gemini Junior.
  4. Once this is done, I cut a piece of acetate to size and adhered to the back of the cut out letters using my Nuvo Medium Glue Pen (let it sit for a few seconds to become nice and tacky before you stick down the acetate.
  5. Make a border around the back side of the letters with foam tape, and fill the enclosed are with sequins, cover over with a second piece of acetate (or white card).
  6. Using tape runner at the top and a few pieces of foam tape at the bottom stick the card front down onto a slightly larger piece of white cardstock, voila…Happy Birthday Bunnies!!
