I have a card today to share with you that I made for Peachy Keen Stamps using this photo for my inspiration:
Isn’t that beautiful!?
As you can see from my card, I was inspired by several elements in the photo… the layout, the colors, the gold, the stitching, the ruffled trim to name just a few. I pulled out the July 2013 SOTM stamp set and used the coffee latte cup for the focal image. To keep with the basic colors of the photo, I decided to paper piece the mug with green patterned paper but left everything else in light browns.
I pulled out my white liquid applique for a fun technique I love to use for ‘foamy’ images. I dabbed the liquid applique all over the foam part of the stamp set and then sprinkled a tiny bit of gold mica glitter and then sprinkled fine clear glitter over it all before heating it up with my heat tool. It’s so fun to watch it bubble up and the glitter helps the bubbling action to not get ‘too crazy’ and also adds some sparkle.
In keeping with the ruffled trim, I added some lace to the bottom of my card with adhesive and then tied some gold elastic cording around it to add just a bit more of that luscious gold to finish my project off!
I layered the tag over another tag die cut from gold card stock and then stamped the sentiments (also from the same stamp set) in Versafine ink and embossed with fine detail gold embossing powder.
Have a great rest of your day!
