A Cup of Love Handmade Card: Layered Watercolor Wash Background with Deco Foil Clear Toner Sheets and NEW Coffee Stamps

Hello friends! I’m back on the blog with a new card idea! My goal this year is to be able to draw and design a new set each week, and so far so good! The team and I are having so much fun creating! Today’s new set is actually a fun, coffee themed collection called A Cup of Love that comes with a cute Coffee Cup and Heart Sugar Cookies illustrations and sentiments you can use all year round!

For this card, I used 2 separate backgrounds I made a couple years ago and ended up not using… One of them is a watercolor wash on white cardstock (you can watch how I made that HERE) and the second is a stenciled Clear Deco Foil Toner Sheet, using gold embossing paste. I adhered the clear sheet onto the watercolored panel and then mounted this striking combo on a white cardbase.

The image was printed on a Brother inkjet printer, and colored with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. I added micro rhinestone stickers to the sugar cookies and some Spectrum Noir Sparkle in clear to the whipped cream and sentiment tag (which I don’t think you’re able to actually see on the pictures). I mounted the image using 3D Zots which works great for deeply textured surfaces!
