Hello my friends! I’m so happy and thankful for being part of this Fall | Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop today! Thank you so much WOW embossing powder for inviting me.
Today I’ll be sharing a Fall Tea card and a Christmas Coffee card. For these cards, I’ll be using watercolors from Jane Davenport and some embossing powders, as well as the Coffe with Character, Winter Botanical and Seasonal Sweetheart stamps and dies from Trinity Stamps, Vintage Teacup from Altenew, the Outline Snowflake Cling stamp and Merry Christmas Script Die from Simon Says Stamp.
Let’s shine! For my first Christmas Coffee card I stamped some images from Trinity Stamps Coffee with Character stamp using VersaFine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed them with WOW Clear embossing powder.
Next, I started coloring the images with Copic markers and added Versamark ink to the heart and circles to each coffee cup and heat embossed them with WOW Red Glitz embossing powder. Then, using the coordinating dies, I die cut the images and set them aside.
For the background, I stamped Outline Snowflake Cling stamp from SSS using Versamark ink and heat embossed it with WOW Diamond White embossing powder. I must say this embossed powder is so beautiful!
To make the frame and the larger oval shape, I inked up a white sheet of paper with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with WOW Midas Touch embossing powder. I repeated the last step three times until I got a very nice coverage. Then, I die cut the frame and oval using one oval and two rectangles dies.
Additionally, I die cut a smaller oval out of a white sheet of paper. I adhered this smaller oval on top of the larger one with double sided tape.
For the sentiment, I die cut the Christmas Script Die from SSS three times and glued them one on top of each other. Next, I inked it up with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with WOW Red Glitz embossing powder. I repeated the last step three times.
Finally, to assemble this card, I placed the frame on top of the snowflake background using double sided tape. Also, I added to the bottom of the background the ovals and placed on top the coffee cups. The sentiment was placed on top of the frame using clear foam Kool Tak double -sided tape Clear Foam Adhesive.
For the Fall card, I stamped the Vintage Teacup from Altenew onto a watercolor paper with Versamark ink and heat embossed it using WOW Metallic Gold embossing powder.
My next step was to paint around the teacup with watercolors. I chose autumn colors from Jane Davenport watercolors.
When the watercolors were already dried, I stamped a few leaves using Versamark ink and heat embossed them with WOW Aladdin embossing powder. In addition, I stamped one leave over white cardstock using the same embossing powder and added it using foam tape to create some dimension.
Finally, I added images stamped on kraft paper and colored with Copic markers from Trinity Stamps Winter Botanical stamps and dies, plus, some pine trees stamped with Gathered Twigs Distress Oxides ink.
Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from Altenew Vintage Teacup stamp with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with WOW Metallic Gold embossing powder. I added this watercolor background to an embossed panel with WOW Aladdin embossing powder for a final perfect match.
These were my cards for today. The Christmas card had a lot of steps, but I love the fact that I was able to show three different embossing powders in one card. For the Fall card, I love the soft and delicate look it has. I think it is very appropriate for a Tea theme. I hope you enjoyed these cards and that I could inspired you a little bit to add more embossing powders to your projects!
