Hey there! It's me with my 7th card for day 7 of the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!! I had a fun idea to do a Transformation ~ Throwback Thursday kind of post today. During the Winter 2017 Coffee Lovers blog hop one of the cards I made and shared wasn't totally my favorite. I ran out of time and shared it before I felt like it was really done. This is the card...
If you'd like to check out the details for this card, you can do that ---> here.
So, I think this card is beautiful... but like I said, I felt like it needed a little something more.
So, here's my Transformation ~ Throwback Thursday card! I changed up the colors to work for a Spring/Summer card. I went with Twisted Citron, Squeezed Lemonade, and Peacock Feathers. I blended the distress oxide inks. I added some water splatters that I dabbed with a paper towel and then added some white acrylic paint splatters. I then stamped the coffee ring from Altenew's Coffee With a Splash set using VersaMark watermark ink and heat embossing ultra fine white embossing powder. To add a little more 'coffee' fun to this version of the card, I stamped the coffee beans from STAMPlorations' Latte Love set with VersaMark watermark ink and heat embossed it with the same embossing powder. I die cut the piece with the same scallop die as the original card from My Favorite Things Blueprints #20. I adhered it to a white card base and set it aside.
I stamped the image from Unity Stamp Company's Planner Gal Stay Cozy set with Memento tuxedo black ink and colored her in with the following copics ~ Y06, Y11, YG11, YG13, YG23, BG11, BG15, E000, E00, E21, E23, E25, E50, E53. I used colors that were similar to the background. I die cut the image using the same My Favorite Things Stitched Fishtail Flag STAX die and popped it up on the card. Now since this is a Spring/Summer card I didn't want to use the same sentiment so I decided to go with Java great day from another STAMPlorations' stamp set called Bloomin' Spring Coffee Basket. I die cut it using a banner die and adhered it to the bottom half. I think doing the sentiment this way makes it pop a bit more.
Well, that's it for my Transformation ~ Throwback Thursday post!
Thanks for stopping by!
See ya next time.
