Wishing You Warmth and Coziness All Winter Long-Coffee and Cards with Celeste and Deb
Hello and welcome to the December Coffee and Cards with Celeste and Deb! Deb and I decided to use this fun winter/Christmas mood board as the inspiration for this month's collaboration cards. I just love all of the images on this mood board! I have an awesome friend who used to get the KOTM's from Unity Stamp Company and she's been kind enough to let me play with her whole collection...thank you Becky! The October 2018 collection really caught my eye and I decided to use several images from that stamp set. I stamped the background stocking stamp onto some kraft cardstock using Memento tuxedo black ink and then cut the panel down using a Pink and Main rectangle stacking die. I mounted it directly to my white A2 card base. To add some interest to the background I added lots of white gel pen detail to the snowflakes and stockings. I then stamped the focal image onto some white Copic-friendly cardstock and die cut it with a pierced edge oval die from My Favorite Things. I stamped the same image again and fussy cut the scarf and adhered it to the focal panel. I colored the images using my alcohol markers and attached the whole thing to my card. I then stamped the sentiment onto more white card stock and mounted them onto some white cardstock I had colored with my Copic marker to match. To finish off this card off I simply added a few clear rhinestones from Recollections around the focal panel. Love this quick and simple card!We got a new Scooter's Coffee here in our little town, so I popped in and tried their iced Peppermint Mocha latte! I ran a very cold and windy 5K this morning and this was the perfect way to refresh after my run! Be sure to pop on over to Deb's site and see how she was inspired by the mood board!
