Hi all my coffee loving friends!
I’m an avid coffee drinker and love making coffee themed cards so this was a no-brainer for me. If you want to check out the full hop and prizes, make sure to start at WOW! Embossing blog.
For my card, I started by heat embossing a stamp set from Picket Fence Studios, aptly called Love of Coffee on Kraft card stock with Metallic Copper embossing powder. This copper is absolutely stunning and it captured all the small lines and images perfectly. Before stamping anything though, I used my anti-static tool all over the Kraft card stock.
The reason I used the Fadeout ink is because I planned on using white embossing powder over the image once it was coloured in. With black ink there is a risk of that showing through the white.
I coloured in the cup with Copics, and before the heat embossing was added, it really looked kind of terrible. Except for the ombré dots pattern I created on the cup itself.
After the white embossing powder was added, it looks totally fab and frothy! Very carefully, I added some more Copic colouring to the coffee foam to make it pop a bit more.
On a piece of teal card stock I stamped the sentiment ‘Coffee doesn’t ask questions, coffee just understands‘ with VersaMark and heat embossed that in Clear embossing powder for a tone on tone look.
I also heat embossed a steam image in white in the left corner of this piece. The steam is from a Trinity Stamps set called Coffee With Character . I added a little bit of texture to the steam with a white coloured pencil.
I kept the colour scheme Kraft, teal and white so the card base is the same teal as the sentiment piece is. The heat embossed Love Of Coffee panel was trimmed down a little so that the teal would frame it. The last thing to do was to add the coffee cup and the card was done!
