Hello Crafters!

It’s Kelly here and I’m back with a fun and colorful one layer card.

I kind of have a small obsession with coffee, and honestly, coffee cups. Cup stamp sets are one of my favorites because they can literally be any design/color combo/arrangement you can think up. It’s incredibly liberating to just be able to play.

I started by stamping and masking my coffee mugs. Then I masked a square around the images and added some Distress Oxide ink blending to the background. After that I splattered on some clean water and some Perfect Pearls. With that said if I had to do it all over again I probably would have skipped this step. I LOVE the shine it gives, I mean who doesn’t love shine right?! But it gave my background a kind of galaxy feel.  I tried adding a few more colors of ink to see if I could break it up but it still looks a bit intergalactic to me lol.

Once the background was done, I removed the masks and jumped right into the Copic coloring. I figured since I already had a crazy colorful background I might as well embrace the Retro vibe I had going. Sometimes, it’s better just to go with the flow 🙂

You can watch the card from start to finish in the video below

Like I said in the video it’s always a learning process so love it or just like as long as you learned something that’s the important part. It’s only going to make you more creative in the end I promise! Don’t forget t hose little details you can add too. Sometimes a little extra stamping or doodling can really change up your design from something that’s just “meh” to something you adore.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I hope you learned something and you’re inspired to give it a try 🙂

    Thank you, Kelly. And thank you for sharing the process, how you wanted to change the background. It helps the rest of us to know it isn’t always easy to create something we really like without all the tweaking that goes into it. ♥
