Rainbow Espressos | Coffee Loving Cardmarkers

Thank you Amy for inviting me to guest design for the month of August, I’m super excited not only for all the caffeinated craftness I get to share, but also all the fall themed products I’ll get to use! 

For my first post I thought that I would use a set that this blog enabled me to buy, but I hadn’t used it till now! To create this card, I started by stamping all the images from the A Breve Note stamp set from Ellen Hutson. I colored them to create a rainbow using copic markers and die cut them using the coordinating dies

Next I inked up a A2 card front using the Triangles Stencil using Distress Oxide Inks in Ground Espresso, Brushed Corduroy, and Frayed Burlap. After the ink dried, I embossed the sentiment using versafine onyx ink and clear embossing powder. I finished off the card by stacking the colored die cuts with foam and glue to create dimension, and lastly added some espresso jewels.

Be sure to stop by the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog for more caffeinated crafty inspiration! Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have a great weekend and I hope you get some crafty time!

Rainbow Shaped Cards | Paper Crafters Against Racism Instagram Hop

Happy Saturday y’all! Popping in quickly to share the details of cards that I just shared on Instagram.

To create these card I die cut the rainbow using the Rainbow Card Die from Ellen Hutson from heavy weight cardstock, making sure to cut the base twice. Then I ink blended the rainbow strips using Distress Oxide Inks (in festive berries, scattered straw, cracked pistachio, tumbled glass, shaded lilac). After assembling the rainbow, I scored a 1/4 inch of the second card base and used double sided tape to adhere it to the back of the rainbow. Lastly I added a sentiment from Simple Sayings: Kind Stamp Set, and sentiment die cut ‘Welcome Little One‘ and ‘Happy Birthday‘.

Happy Crafting!
