The Fall 2016 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop – Chevron Crazy (x2) + Brusho Crystal Colours

clbhfall2016edited

Hi! I’m very happy to have you visiting my blog today.

I have a bright card to share with you that I designed with STAMPlorations products for the Fall CLBH.

Speaking of “lovers”……STAMPlorations is one of the FAll CLBH sponsors and Shery has a bunch Coffee & Tea lover themed products in her store.

Here’s a closer look at my card:img_2407edited

 I love this new STAMPlorations set – Anywhere There’s Coffee Stamps & Die Set by Shery.

 Besides the stamps from Anywhere There’s Coffee Stamps & Die Set,  I also used the ARTplorations stencil Chevron Crazy.

img_2401_edited-1How I made this card:

  1. I made the background by reverse stenciling with Brusho Crystal Colours and the Chevron Crazy stencil.
  2. I used the stencil in the traditional way and sponged green, blue and purple ink on white card stock.img_2422edited
  3. I stamped the travel coffee cup onto the sponged background. SheryRuss_AnywhereTheresCoffee-preview
  4. I fussy cut the cup.img_2405edited
  5. Matted the chevron panel in Kraft.
  6. Stamped the sentiment.img_2421edited
  7. Added the matted panel to the card base.
  8. Attached the cup with foam tape.img_2406edited

 I really enjoyed making this card and I hope that you enjoyed seeing it.

  1. This card is absolutely stunning! I love the way you used the stencil and carried the pattern through the background and through the coffee cup! That is such a brilliant idea and something I’ve never seen done quite like that before. This is like a work of art rather than a coffee card! I also really loved the way you blended and blurred the pattern/colors in the upper left corner, then left the pattern crisp and sharp lower down on the card. This is filled with wonderful details and techniques and I’m so glad you shared your talents with us for this week’s Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
