Back again with another Coffee Card for the Summer 2016 Coffee Lovers Bloghop!
My good friend Patti made one of these when we were at a crop together and I've been wanting to try it since! She found something on Pinterest and then kind of winged it and when I started creating mine, I checked in with her and then I winged it too. Basically she had me cut a bunch of rectangles that were about 1.5 inches wide and 4.5 inches long. Then I cut them each from one corner to the other corner and proceeded to place the rectangles in a starburst pattern where I thought I wanted them on my paper before I decided it was time to glue them down. That's it. Nothing too scientific and there may be a better way to do it, but THAT is what I did. Where they came together is where I first placed my border across the bottom and then slapped on my beautiful Paper Sweeties heart doily from the With Love Sweet Cuts. You can make this Sunburst design without the border and have the rays go all around, but I chose to make mine this way. There are tons of links on Pinterest where I'm sure you could find tutorials... I'll call my version "Winging It".
These very cool coffee stamps are from Stamplorations and I'm also playing along with the Stamplorations Never Ending Anything Goes Challenge!
Just love the many coffee stamps they have over at the Stamplorations Shop! I used Coffee Happy for the coffee pot and cup. I stamped the tip of one of the feathers from the Trendy Feathers 2 set onto the cup and colored it all in with my Copic markers. The steam was cut from vellum using a Paper Sweeties die... it's my favorite way to add steam to my coffee projects these days...
I just love all the sentiments on the Coffee Happy Set... and I love the look of a white sentiment embossed on black paper... and I got these cute little paper flowers at my LSS and cut the little leaves with a Paper Sweeties die from Hello Spring set. The little cross-stitched heart ... I borrowed a die from mom and I don't remember where it was from... but I can find out if you would like to know.
So thanks for stopping by! You still have today and tomorrow to link up to the Coffee Lovers Hop! Come on! Throw your cup in the ring!! Nothing to lose and everything to win!
Oh... I almost forgot... #AMYMADEMEBUYIT !
