I stared with Whisper White cardstock. Then layered it with A piece of Heart Warming Hugs DSP (153492) which is NOT retiring cut 5 ¼ x 4. I created my own background using the coffee bean stamp in the Press On (153392) stamp set. This stamp set was designed by Joyce Feraco’s for her $1,000,000 stamp set. Sadly, this stamp set is on the retiring list 😦 Here in the Pacific Northwest, we love a good cup of caffeine. Back to stamping… I stamped the coffee beans onto a piece of Granny Apple Green cardstock cut 4 x 1 ¾ & glued it to the Heart Warming Hugs DSP. I die cut the heart using Real Red cardstock from a retired heart die (125599). The coffee cup from the Press On set (153392) was stamped on to Whisper White using black Memento ink. I coloured the cup using Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends & fussy cut it out. The sentiment was stamped in Versamark & embossed using white embossing powder (109132) then heat embossed on to a piece of 2 1/2 x 3/4 black cardstock. The red heart was adhered using dimensionals. The cup was also popped up using dimensionals. The sentiment was glued to the cup but I added a few dimensionals on the ends.
This is the 2nd card in the stack of cards I made as teacher gifts. I CASEd (Copy And Share Everything) it from Pinterest. I started with Garden Green cardstock cut 5 ¼ x 4 that I embossed using the Old World Paper 3D EF (153200) & glued it to the Whisper White card base. I cut a piece of Brushed Metallic cardstock 3 x 4 ½. That was layered under the Whisper White layer that was also cut 3 x 4 ½. I roughed up the edges of the Whisper White layer using the edge of my paper snips. I stamped the nativity scene using the Peaceful Nativity stamp set (153310) which is currently on the retiring list/closeout special in Early Espresso. I coloured it in using Crumb Cake, Soft Suede & So Saffron Stampin’ Blends. The sentiment is from the For Unto Us stamp set (153335) which is NOT retiring 🙂 I stamped it in Garden Green. I die cut the star from the coordinating Nativity Dies (153525) also on the retiring list/closeout special using more of the Brushed Metallic cardstock then popped it up using the mini dimensionals.
I started with Basic Grey cardstock. I layered it with Whisper White cut 2 x 4, Whisper White cut 3 ¼ x 4 embossed using a retired Decorative Dots EF (133520) & Basic Grey cut ½ x 4 to hide the seam of the 2 Whisper White layers. I layered a 3 x 3 Plaid Tidings DSP popping it up with dimensionals. The circles were die cut using Merry Merlot roughly 2 ⅝ circle & Basic Grey die cut using Stitched Shapes (145372). The circles were adhered using Tombow liquid glue. The gnome was inked in Memento black ink & coloured using Stampin’ Blends. I “fussy cut” the gnome & popped him up on dimensionals. On his beard, I used Wink of Stella (141897) to give it a subtle bling. For the final touches, I added a few Basic Pearls (144219). The sentiment is from the Banner Year stamp set (153464 stamped in Basic Grey.
