Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Collaboration Blog Hop with Little Acres Creations

Hello and welcome to the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Collaboration Blog Hop with Little Acres Creations! I hope you came here from Becca's blog, but if not, please check out full blog hop list in the bottom of this post. 

Today, I featured newly released Little Acres Creations Cafe Dreamers Stamp Set. Mouse with cup images of this stamp set remind me of Cinderella and Dobby of Harry Potter. I'd like to combine these images with coffee theme and here is what I came up with.

To begin, I colored images with copic markers after printing them out. Cafe Dreamers is not digital stamp, but I made this card before physical stamp arrived so I used digital images they sent me. After coloring, I fussy cut them using scissors.

I pulled out watercolor paper and created background with distress inks using ink smooshing technique. I used Picked Raspberry, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron and Cracked Pistachio. Once dried, I adhered details using white gel pen.

I then mounted watercolor panel to A2 sized top folding blue card base. I foam mounted cup image and glued sentiment where I wanted them as well. To finish, I embellished wood stars as shown in the picture and tied up ribbon with hemp cord.

Little Acres Creations is giving away two (2) $10 Little Acres Gift Certificate. Commenting closes Friday, April 20th at 11:55 pm pacific and winner will be announced on Monday, April 23rd.
