I'm sharing two cards today featuring three of the new January Release sets.
I wanted to create a little bit snarky non-traditional color Valentine's Day card. I started by embossing the hearts from Grunge Elements 2 in clear embossing powder on bristol smooth cardstock. I cut the panel with a stitched rectangle die, ink blended with chipped sapphire distress oxide ink and added a piece of washi tape.
I stamped the coffee cups with VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink onto white cardstock and pattern paper. I stamped the lids a second time and coffee sleeves on white. I fussy cut the cups, lids and sleeves. I stamped the sentiment from Coffee Talk 2 and XO from Much Love with chipped sapphire on the coffee sleeves.
I paper pieced the cups together. I stamped Happy Valentine's Day from Love Wordfetti on white and cut a banner tail. I assembled the card on a white card base popping one of the coffee cups and sentiment up with foam tape.
My second card features the fun new set Background Builders: Stripes and I used a previous layout from Freshly Made Sketches.
I began by stamping the thicker stripes from Background Builders: Stripes with buttercup ink on so saffron cardstock to create a tone on tone effect. I cut the panel down and mounted on a black panel. Next, I stamped the Delightfully Delicate Background with VersaMark ink on a kraft cardstock base.
I stamped the teapot from In This Together, with VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink, colored with Arteza watercolor brush markers and fussy cut out. I stamped the sentiment with black ink on kraft cardstock and assembled the card popping the sentiment up with foam tape.
