"Fall" In Love Coffee Card for Coffee Loving Cardmakers

I know, I know, it's the middle of summer.  What can I say?  I love Fall.  Plus, I just couldn't wait to break in the new Hello Fall paper collection from Carta Bella Paper.   And, isn't that Pumpkin Spice stamp from Unity Stamps just totally awesome?  I pretty much just want to eat the whole thing.

This project, as well as all the details and Coffee Buzz news (Hugh Jackman is in the house!) can be found by hopping on over to Coffee Loving Cardmakers.  I do have clickable affiliate links posted below however, should you wish to purchase any of the products that I've used today.

Sympathy Card for So Suzy Stamps

If you stopped in from the So Suzy Stamp blog today, you're in the right place.  I'm sharing for the "Anything Goes" design team inspiration theme for this month,  creating a sympathy card that features the Fancy Butterfly and Deepest Sympathy Stamp, along with Tombow dual brush and Nuvo embossing powder.





Here's what you need for this project:

-Misti stamping tool
-Mixed Media Cardstock (Strathmore 300 series)
-Waterbrush
-Waterbased marker (Tombow dual brush)
-Nuvo Hot Chocolate Embossing Powder
-Beige cardstock (DCWV) A2 size
- brown cardstock panel 3 1/2"x 4 1/4"
-sentiment cardstock panel 4 1/4" x just over 1/2"
-Versamark Clear watermark ink
*optional dryer sheet
-heat emboss tool
-paper towel
-adhesive runner
-foam tape


**Bonus Tip - Prepare the surface for embossing by swiping a dryer sheet on your cardstock.  This helps eliminate excess stray powder.

1.  To begin, stamp your butterfly stamp in random patterns onto a large piece of mixed media cardstock (it will be trimmed down later), using Versamark and the Misti stamping tool.  I stamped each image twice.




2.  Sprinkle your embossing powder, tap off excess. pouring remainder back in bottle.  Heat with your tool gun.




3. Initially, I was going to use several colors but I decided to stick with just one for the sympathy card.  I felt like less warranted.  Color your images, darkening your color around the outer and inner edges.  Use a waterbrush near the center of each wing to dilute color for a light efffect.  Blot with paper towel.  Wasn't that easy??!




4.  Heat emboss your sentiment in the same manner, on a strip of matching cardstock, trimming down to dimensions mentioned above.




5.  Trim your butterfly embossed panel down to approximately 4 1/2" to 2 3/4" to layer with your brown card panel.  Pop up the butterfly panel with foam tape and your sentiment panel as well.





Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Clickable shopping links for some of the products that I've used are available below.  Have a wonderful week!
