You're Great-Coffee And Cards With Celeste And Deb
Hello, and welcome to the February edition of Coffee And Cards With Celeste And Deb! This month we decided to do a mood board so I searched Pinterest for my inspiration. I found a beautiful collection of items and decided on a theme of black, white, pink, and gold. We also have a special guest with us again this month...the wonderful Terri Albro Burson. She is fantastically crafty and designs for So Suzy Stamps and is the spokesperson for Adornit! She, Deb, and I have been crafty friends for years and thought it would be fun to have her guest with us this month!
To create my card I started by layering some beautiful white and gold patterned paper from The Shoppe On The Square paper pad by The Paper Studio onto some basic black cardstock by Stampin' UP, which I then adhered directly onto my white card base. I cut a smaller strip of pink and white patterned paper from the same paper pad and matted it onto more black cardstock and adhered it directly onto the focal panel. I stamped the beautiful floral image from Unity Stamp Company's As We Go Along stamp set onto some Copic-friendly cardstock and colored the flowers in using the colors from the mood board. I added some black and white stripes to the vase using my dual tip Memento tuxedo black marker. I fussy cut the images out and popped them up off of the card using Stampin' UP foam dimensionals. I added some black Wink of Stella to the black stripes on the base and some Forever In Time gold gel pen to the centers of the flowers for some pretty shimmer and shine. I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set onto the contrast border using Versafine onyx black ink for a nice, crisp look. A few dots of ebony black Nuvo Crystal Drops finished this card off nicely!
As for my beverage choice this month I actually opted for a Starbucks Grande Chai Tea Latte. Thank you for visiting my blog today! Now be sure to pop over and visit Deb and Terri's blogs and show them some blog love by leaving a comment!
