Hey friends! Thank you so much for your patience… I’m finally back on the blog, and I have a lovely new card to share plus some awesome news too!

While you take in all the info above (LOL), let me show you my latest card using one of our newest digi stamp sets! This set is called Coffee Lovers. We released it for National Coffee Day recently and it also comes with coordinating Coffee Lovers digital paper pack and SVG Cut Files (all of which are available HERE).

For the card’s background I dry embossed a white cardstock panel using the very old Argyle Cuttlebug embossing folder. Then I teared a few pieces of patterned paper that I printed previously on leather textured cardstock and layered 3 pieces on the center of the card panel. I used the new GK Foam tape in white, to give one of the patterned pieces more dimension.

I watercolored this coffee mug using the Paul Rubens watercolor palette. I finished the image with some Diamond Dust Twinklets that I adhered to the topping with Ultra Bond Adhesive. By the way, this new adhesive is amazing for glitter, sequins, ribbon and so much more… It’s super strong, dries fast and clear! Totally recommend it!

For the the sentiment, I decided to draw a heart around it and color it with Spectrum Noir markers… It ended up looking like a yummy butter cookie! I added some shimmer to it using a Sparkle brush pen too.

To finish off my card I adhered a jute twine bow to the mug and some sequins to the background using Ultra Bond Adhesive.
