Merry & Bright-Coffee And Cards With Celeste And Deb
Hello and welcome to our final Coffee and Cards with Celeste and Deb for the year! This month we have Shanna of Caffeinated Craftiness joining us as a guest designer. She makes the loveliest coffee cards! Debra chose our inspiration photo this month and I think it's absolutely perfect for a December/holiday card! To create my card I started by layering some red cardstock from Stampin' UP onto my white A2 card base. I then layered on some fun coffee, Christmasy patterned papers from the American Crafts Hot Cocoa 6x6 paper pad. I then stamped the coffee cup image from the Unity Stamp Company's KOTM We Can Rise stamp set onto some Copic-friendly white cardstock using Memento tuxedo black ink and colored it to match the inspiration photo. I masked the image and then stamped some small snowflakes around it using a stamp from the Inkadinkado Christmas Characters stamp set. I die cut the image into a circular focal panel using a pierced edge circle die from My Favorite Things and then matted it onto more red cardstock using a Spellbinders die. I stamped the sentiment and the hearts from the Simon Says Stamp Christmas mini stamp set using both Versafine onyx black ink and Memento lady bug red ink. I cut it down into a think sentiment strip, matted it onto some more red cardstock and adhered it directly to the card. To finish this card off I added some clear shimmer to the colored image using my Spectrum Noir clear glitter pen and scattered a few red sequins from Craft Medley for some additional pops of color and interest.
For my coffee choice this month I opted for a Starbucks white mocha latte to help warm me up on this rainy, cold day. Now pop on over to Deb and Shanna's blogs and see what fun they created!
