Hi! Welcome to my blog and this week’s Stamping Sunday blog hop. Grab a cup of coffee (or your favorite beverage) and sit back and enjoy our creative inspiration. Our guest designer this week is Maria Willis. She’s got a great fun style! Ready to take a look at Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Stampin’ Blends? Then, let’s get started!!
Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Stampin’ Blends
I had a ball coloring this coffee drink!
I mean…these things seriously make me want to color!!
For my color inspiration, I used my favorite Starbuck’s coffee beverage.
My card base is Early Espresso
Then, I topped it with a layer of Cherry Cobbler.
And for my focal layer, I used a piece of Thick Whisper White.
After stamping the cup and whipped cream from Coffee Cafe it was time for coloring.
To color, I used a combination of Stampin’ Blends (see product details below).
Once I’d achieved the desired look, I added a couple of frosty drips.
They’re a sneak peek of new product from the Occasions Catalog!
Next, I used Light Smoky Slate and the Color Lifter to add a light shadow at the base of the cup.
Sorry it’s hard to see with the lighting.
Then, I added a piece of 1/8″ Gold Ribbon (currently on sale!).
And finished with a 1″ circle punch stamped with images from Merry Cafe.
Anybody else notice that the cups in these two sets are slightly different?
Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Stampin’ Blends Project 2
For my second project, I created a cupcake using images from Coffee Cafe.
Again, I used an Early Espresso base followed by Cherry Cobbler and Thick Whisper White.
For the cupcake liner, I used the coffee cup collar image.
Then, I used a Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker to draw in the lines.
For my chocolate cupcake and icing, I used a combination of Bronze and Ivory.
Then, I colored the cupcake liner with Light and Dark Old Olive.
Again, I added a shadow at the base of the cupcake with Light Smoky Slate and the Color Lifter.
And around the top, I added a highlight with Light Pool Party and the Color Lifter.
