Perk Up

Here is my second entry for the 2016 Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. And for this card I used images from Gina K. Designs stamps.


The sentiment was added to the center of a pre-printed label frame which was in a past card kit from Gina K. Designs. I die cut that patterned paper circle with a die from My Favorite Things. It was a die that cut out the center and left the outer part for a frame. It also has some stitches in it.


I used ivory card stock and stamped the cup with Gina K. Designs black ink. After that I colored it with Bic Mark-It pens. But to finish the cup off I pieced a portion of the pattern paper from the Gina K. Designs Autumn Wishes paper pack on the band area. I then popped it up over the stitched framed sentiment.

My base card was in a deep red color so I thought these designs would work well on it. I also added a strip of the pattern paper along the bottom of the card which was layered onto ivory card stock.


It looked sort of plain to me so I took some complimentary colored enamel dots from Stampin' Up! and added them randomly. Also in the center of the card I added a sheet of ivory card stock so that I could stamp a sentiment or write a message.



Supplies:
Gina K. Design Stamp Sets: We Go Together and Coffee which are both illustrated by Claire Brennan
MFT Die-namics Die:

Thanks for  checking in and leaving so many kind words about my card. I hope you are having a fantastic day too!

God bless,
Verna
