Hello -Kathy here from Create.365 to share with you a Pumpkin Spice themed fall coffee card made using the Best Glue Ever and Embellie Gellie from ScraPerfect. I've used the sketch from Just For Fun and will be participating in the Fall Coffee Lover's Blog Hop that runs from Sept 15 -22, 2017.
Today's card was made using the same free pattern papers from the UK craft magazine that I mentioned in my last post, along with stamps from A*Muse Studio and Unity Stamp Company. The rectangle die set is from Fun Stampers Journey. To save some paper, I cut out the inside of the yellow layer for the A2 card front and used it on the inside of the card...no one will ever know because it's hidden under all the layers!
Assembling the layers according to the sketch, I chose ribbon for my accents and the perfect glue for ribbon is the Best Glue Ever because it will not bleed through the ribbon like so many other glues do! I applied a thin layer to the back, let it air dry until it was tacky to the touch and then applied it to the card front. Using the Embellie Gellie wand to apply the sequins kept the sequins under control and the glue off of my hands, lol...that's a win-win situation right there!
The sentiment and the Pumpkin Spice coffee cup were stamped in black ink and colored with my favorite watercolor pencils. I then colored the ribbon on the cup with my Gold Wink of Stella shimmer pen.
Finishing off the focal image was as simple as sponging brown ink around the edges and adhering it to the card front with foam pop dots.
I also popped the sentiment up with mini pop dots.
On the inside I used the left over layers from my card front die cut rectangles, stamped the sentiment in black and the pumpkins (from a SU! Paper Pumpkin set) in orange hybrid ink several times using my stamp tool to get nice solid ink coverage. I utilized the masking technique to stack the pumpkins and colored the stems and shadows in with colored pencils...what a difference that makes! The little swirl was stamped in brown ink and traced over with a glittery gel pen.
That's it for me today as I enjoy the kick off of Pumpkin Spice season! Until next time, happy crafting with ScraPerfect~
