First up today is a simple "I Heart You" card! I used the fabulous new Cover Up Die: Alphabet. I see so many uses in my head for this die! I can't wait to pair it up with some school cards later down the road. It's also perfect to use with the baby themed products LID is releasing this month! But, I took a simpler approach. I die cut it with white & pink cardstock and then selectively cut out the parts I wanted to highlight. I then die cut one of the Dual Stitched Hearts and popped it up over the "o".
Next, I put together a trio of coffee themed gift card holders using the new Coffee Talk stamp set & the previously released Limited Edition Stitched Gift & Note Card Holder Die & Dual Stitched Speech Bubbles 2. This was actually my husband's idea! When I showed him the set he said I should use them to make gift card holders! He's so smart. :)
For this first one I was inspired by some coffee art I found on Pinterest. I stamped the coffee image from Coffee Talk (the cup & lid are separate stamps) on a piece of coffee dictionary paper that I ripped out of an old dictionary. I then took out my aquacolor crayons, scribbled on an old CD case the colors I wanted to use and picked them up with my aqua pen. I really liked how it turned out.
Coffee Talk also has sentiments that are perfect to put on the inside of the gift card also!
This one I colored the Coffee Talk image with Souffle gel pens. My son loves the Cotton Candy Frappe at Starbucks so I made this one pink!
And last, I used my aquacolor crayons to color on kraft cardstock some iced coffee. I stamped the solid ice cubes from Coffee Talk with vintage cream pigment ink. This sentiment is from a wonderful new stamp set called Go Confidently that has lots of great sentiments and options to go along with the larger sentiments, such as "On Your Achievement!" like I used here!
And don't forget about these new Ombre Paper Pads! :)
