I’m up on the Viva La Verve blog today with a recap of Stacey’s Week 4 sketch along with a few cards which caught my eye this week. Sorry for the super late post! You can say I’m suffering from a coffee hangover today 🙂
Here is my (yet another coffee) card!
I started with doing a background panel in the same layout as the sketch. Then added the coffee image from Verve Coffee set embossed in gold and colored in white. I was going for a elegant porcelain cup – I love those even though they are used more for tea I know! 🙂
I love how the coffee word at the bottom turned out! Cut it out of fun foam using the Verve Coffee die then gave it a good distressing with distress inks and some watercoloring to spread the distressing on the panel. Added some glitter with Wink of Stella. finished the card with some random watercolored spots and wooden stars!
Now the VLV sketch was one inspiration for this card.
My other inspiration was Debby’s card from the current CASE Study Challenge! Oh I was rushing so much to try and play in this. I absolutely wanted to play at least once with Debby as the muse! And the fact that this is possibly the last CASE Study challenge meant I HAD to play!!! I kept my card very CAS and put in a touch of gold inspired by Debby’s card!
So glad I got this done! Needless to say, this is getting linked up to the CASE Study challenge!
Thanks for dropping by!
Lovely card, the embossing adds a nice touch of elegance. Thanks for the fun hop yesterday and all your hard work for it.
Love your coffee card Chaitali, very pretty.
First, thank you for a most amazing hop yesterday, Chaitali! I was late to the game, but managed to squeak in a new card (I’d made two for my Inkspirational Challenges DT post, but they didn’t ‘fall’ into the required time frame. Following the requirements is important!). Your ‘coffee hangover’ – absolutely understandable! I’m swooning over your card…love the embossing, the coffee die, the patterned panel…Gorgeous!
lovely card Chaitali!! love the “coffee” die cut and the color spread around it… looks nice…
Love how you were inspired! The coffee card is simply gorgeous! I adore the gold and inking!
Oh, I love the gold and black combo… the little wood veneer stars look great… also like the coloring behind the die-cut word. 🙂
Beautiful.. the gold tea (coffee) cup is elegant!
Another delightful creation– so love your stamp set and that die! Will have to place and order with Verve soon– but I have way too much NBUS right now!! xo
So elegant and fun! Love those gold accents and the fun shading around the coffee script.
