Coffee and Christmas!

 Hi there! It's Kathi here! Our theme this week is Christmas and/or coffee since Topflight Stamps is a super-sponsor of the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. Being me, I combined both themes and created a card and a tag!

Here's the tag!

The coffee cup from the Winter's Snowflakes Clear Polymer Stamp Set by Hobby Art was stamped onto white cardstock and label paper. The Santa Parrot from the Elena Zinski Art #17 Rubber Cling Mounted Stamp Set by PaperArtsy was stamped onto the coffee cup and onto label paper, which was fussy-cut to create a mask. The mask was positioned and Post-It Notes were placed around the cup to protect the background. Periwinkle Prism Dye Ink Pad by Hunkydory Crafts and grey ink were brushed over the masked image. 

The coffee cup was masked and a red inks were brushed over the background. A baby wipe was used to lift some of the ink, then the panel was heat set. White hybrid ink was used to stamp snowflakes from the Winter's Snowflakes Clear Polymer Stamp Set by Hobby Arts around the coffee cup. The steam from the coffee cup was stamped with the white ink and the grey ink to add a bit of contrast.

The masks were lifted and the parrot and the coffee cup lid were colored with Copic markers. Glitter glue was added to the base of the image panel, which was then adhered to a plaid patterned paper tag.

The sentiments from the Coffee First #252 Clear Stamp Set by AALL and Create and the Classic Sentiments Clear Stamp Set by Heffy Doodle were stamped with Onyx Black VersaFine Ink by Tsukineko onto a piece of plaid paper which was then die-cut and adhered to the tag. A hole was punched in the top of the tag. Some fibers were threaded through the hole to finish the tag.

White mixed media cardstock was cut with a coffee cup die and the Santa Hat was stamped onto the cup and onto a Post-It Note, which was fussy-cut to mask the hat. The camel was stamped onto the image panel and onto masking paper, which was fussy-cut and placed over the image on the coffee cup. 

Distress inks were brushed over the coffee cup and heat set. Darker green ink was brushed over music and dot stencils, but they kind of faded into the background. Oh well. 

The masks were lifted and the image and the coffee cup were colored with Copic markers. The lid, which is a separate die, was used to cut white cardstock, which was shaded with Copic markers, then adhered to the coffee cup.

Old patterned paper was trimmed to become the card front. Music-patterned and striped washi tapes were adhered to the base of the card front. The sentiment was stamped onto the reverse of the patterned paper using Onyx Black VersaFine Ink, cut with a speech bubble die, and adhered to the image panel, which was mounted onto a red card.
