Winter 2016 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop – Stacked Cups

Hi! I’m here with a card for the 2016 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!!!!

To start, I printed a free stacked cups image from Beyond the Fringes Crafts. 🙂 Thanks for the free digi, Carmen!

I also printed the image onto removable mailing label and cardstock, then I fussy cut the images out. I also created a mask and then sponged on the silvery-gray shadow of the cups onto the background, to the left of the cups.slide02

Here’s a closer look at the “shadow” that I sponged on:slide03

I  fussy cut the sticky cups apart and then sponged on different Christmassy colors. Then, to add some rigidity, I restacked the sticker cups onto the cardstock stack of cups. I made the curls by stamping and heat embossing with my prize stamp from the Fall CLBH!

I love this gorgeous background STAMP!

Curls Background Builder Cling Rubber Stamp

I added gold to some of the swirls with a glass pen. I stamped the curly-swirly, steamy background with the JVD Curls background stamp too.

Thanks, Jillian! I love this stamp and have designed 2 more cards for the Winter CLBH with it. slide01

I designed my own “stacked” sentiment (see the bottom right below) and printed it onto vellum.

You are welcome to print some of these for your own use. 🙂slide1slide02Thanks for stopping by!

Grace, Peace & Merry Christmas,

Melissa
