I also wanted to mention that I'll be submitting the first card to the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge. This time the challenge is all about fall. What do I love about fall? It's finally acceptable to use dark orange-y colors (like I've used here), it always smells like apples, and it's time for a nice cup of hot chocolate at night! Join in the challenge by following the link below:
Here's the card I'm making in today's video. I started with an A2 card base and covered the card front with orange cardstock from the kit. Next, I layered an orange and white paper and a solid orange paper on top.
I used Versafine Onyx Black ink to stamp my coffee cup image onto more of the orange and white patterned paper. I used the same ink to stamp the "hello" sentiment and some Studio Calico Color Theory Clean Slate ink to stamp the shading onto the bottom of the cup. I used my EK Success Cutter Bee scissors to cut out the cup and a craft knife to cut out the handle.
I also stamped a portion of the coffee cup onto some scrap brown paper and cut out just the little piece that serves as the coffee inside the cup. I used my Martha Stewart Fine Tip Glue Pen to glue this little guy onto my larger image.
The sentiment is also from the stamp set and stamped in Versafine ink. I used some foam squares to pop up my coffee cup onto the orange panel just above the sentiment. The steam is a stamp from the kit (stamped in SC Clean Slate ink). I stamped the full image once and then inked up just the larger steam image again, rotated it, and stamped again.
While I was stamping...I thought it would be fun to use some other papers from the kit to make a more feminine version of the same card. All of the steps are the same...just with prettier colors! :)
That's it for today! I'll have a few more videos with this kit coming soon! Thanks for stopping by!
