Coffee, Create, Sleep, Repeat
Today's card was created for the latest The Paper Players challenge. I started my card off by layering some pretty patterned paper from the American Crafts Dear Lizzy Neapolitan 6x6 paper pad onto a white card base. I then die cut the scalloped edge focal panel using a Gina Marie Designs die and some white card stock from Staples. I then layered the panel onto some cherry cobbler cardstock from Stampin' UP and stamped the coffee image and sentiment from My Style Stamps Coffee Lovers stamp set using Memento tuxedo black ink. I stamped the coffee cup one more time onto some more of the same Dear Lizzy patterned paper and fussy cut the image leaving out the whipped topping. I edged the image with a dual tip Memento marker for a clean look and adhered it directly onto the stamped image below. I shaded everything on the cup using Copic markers for some additional depth and dimension. For a finishing touch I added some matching sequins from The Ton and some glossy accents to the top of the cup. I will be swapping this card out with my September swap partner for the Coffee Lover's card swap. I hope you like it!
