Paper Sweeties August Release Rewind

Wednesday, August 15, 2018

Hey, y'all!  I'm sure you've already got those new, August, Paper Sweeties goodies already on their way to your mailboxes; but I've got one more creation to share for this August Release.  Enjoy!
I started this card by stamping the coffee beans and right, cup image, both from Coffee, Yes Please, in Jet Black ink, on a 3-1/2" x 4-3/4" piece of watercolor paper.  I then masked the coffee beans and stamped the mirror, cup image on a piece of clear cardstock before rubbing the ink next to the primary image and outlining it, with black ink, just to redefine the edges.  All images were then watercolored; and the background was splattered with the same shades of watercolor with which I filled in the images, as well as Pure Black and Titanium White, acrylic paints.  The partial, "congrats" sentiment was then die-cut, using the Congrats Sweet Cuts die, right from the center of the image and re-placed, stacked upon five layers of white cardstock, all die-cut using the same Congrats Sweet Cuts die.
The secondary "Join me for a cuppa", once again from Coffee, Yes Please, sentiment was then stamped, in Jet Black ink, just below the primary sentiment...
and although they show up much better in real life, a trio of steamy swirls were clear-embossed above the mugs.  The prepped piece was framed with Daffodil Delight cardstock, as well as yellow-threaded, straight, machine stitching and popped up, with foam tape, off the white, cardstock, card face to complete the look.
Thanks, as always, for humbling me with a visit!  Have a remarkable remainder of your summers, Paper Sweeties fans!
