Happiness is a Cup of Coffee

Hi Crafty Friends,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Being a brand new month it is time to introduce our new challenge hostess which is me!

This week it’s all about Color Blocking …. Incorporate this technique onto your card using cardstock

I have a coffee themed card to share today using the July Kit from La La Land Crafts. As you can see I created a pop-up card using the pop-up die from Karen Burniston's Explosion Pop-up die set.

For the background of my card I used MFT Stamps Horizontal Stitched Stripes die-namics die cutting two shades of pink and two shades of brown cardstock to create my color blocked background. After die cutting the panels, I adhered them to a thin piece of cardstock and then stamped the background using Picket Fence Stamps Love of Coffee Background.

After die cutting the pop-up from white cardstock, I then carefully marked and trimmed around the background panels, to fit around the pop-up.

I stamped "Marci" from the stamp kit and adhered her to the pop-up portion of the card.

I added the sentiment and two coffee mugs to the bottom portion of the card. 

Along the top edge of the card I added the "Coffee" sentiment which is also included in the La La Land Crafts kit.

For the front of the card I added the same background that I created on the inside. I also added the coffee pot and mug onto circles as well as a sentiment.

To finish off the card I added some gems randomly around the card and a few hearts.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.
