Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop 2021 Post #6


This is my sixth post in the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop 2021!

In this post I have a card to share:

I have used the same background as I used in other posts. It is Gathered Twigs Distress Ink smooshed onto  white card, then Versafine Clair Pinecone ink stencilled through a
 CAS- UAL Friday (Super Sponsor) stencil (By the beans) - a prize from the last hop!

I made two A4 sheets of this background so I still have enough left for some more ATCs.

I trimmed the background to size and added some distress around this layer using the Gathered Twigs and glued it onto a square kraft card blank..

I then stamped my image on white - a Stampendous (Sponsor) House Mouse design - with the Pinecone. It stamped beautifully!
This was a "never used before" item so I will share this make with NBUS Challenge #24
I used markers to add colour to the image, added distress around the edges, added it to a layer of kraft, distressed that and added it to the card.
Finally, I stamped my sentiment stamps from Joy Clair (sponsor) and CAS-UAL Fridays (Sponsor) in the Pinecone ink on white. I trimmeded it and added it to a kraft background, distressing each layer.

Happy Crafting!
