Iced Coffee Card (Crafty Creations Challenges #309)

Hi everyone! :o)

Yesterday a new challenge started at Crafty Creations Challenges. I realized that yesterday and made my card last night. :o)

Before I go to our new challenge and my project, something that may be interesting to you.

We are looking for some talented crafters to join our Design Team. Everyone is welcome to apply. If you are interested in joining our team, hop over to Crafty Creations Challenges Blog for more information. Here is a direct link to the DT Call. :o)

Now to the challenge...

Our theme for this fortnight is #309 - Something to Eat/Drink.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Fresh Brewed Designs, with a great prize for our random winner: 3 digital images of winners choice.

For this challenge I CASEd my own card and made this CAS, Iced Coffee Card. You can find my CASEd card here. :o)

I made "the original" last week and was so satisfied with it, so I had to CASE it. I think these are great masculine cards. This one will be for my coffee lover friend's birthday, he celebrates next month. :o)

My both cards have same layout, similar color combinations, sentiments heat embossed in white on black cardstock paper, same embellishments and images from same stamp set. :o)

For this card I used 'Iced Coffee' blueprint stamp. I Love Tim Holtz's blueprint images!! This stamp set was a blog hop prize from a Simon Says Stamp. :o)

I cut out a panel from a white watercolor paper and stamped image on it. I colored it in watercolor technique with Distress Inks. I also shaded it with light gray color I got mixing Distress Ink Hickory Smoke with a lot of water. I didn't shade the image on CASEd card, so shading is also one of differences. :o)

To add more interest to the image, I added highlights with white pen. When I was satisfied with it, I glued the panel on a white cardstock base.

Then I heat embossed the sentiment on a piece of black cardstock paper. I glued 3D foams on the back of the sentiment and placed it on the card. Couple of enamel stickers and my card was finished. :o)

Card dimensions are 101 mm x 132 mm (4" x 5 1/4").

  1. Te njihove štampiljke so res lepe in zanimive. Ti si jo lepo uporabila in nastala je všečna voščilnica :-))

  2. I remember the original of your card too Milka, and this one is just as fabulous! As always, you've done a wonderful job with the colouring, I love how you "ground" the image with a nice dark shadow. Great use of the little enamel dots... they add a nice pop of colour.

  3. Great fun CAS card and thank you for sharing with us in our challenge at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends. Good luck in the draw. Jennifer DT member x
