AAA Cards Challenge - Die Cuts


Hi Everyone 
It's time for another AAA Cards Challenge and this week we're asking you to use die cuts.   We are sponsored by Stamplorations who have a gorgeous flutter Zen layering die and Hello Sunshine phrase  die for the winner  as well as a super generous 10% coupon for all players!!! 

For my card this week I used my new Lil Inker's Coffee Talk Stamp Set and Die Set.  I die cut the images from watercolor card stock and then stamped the images using Versafine Onyx Black ink over the top.   For the sleeve, I created a wash of pink on a piece of card and die cut the sleeve once it had dried. I then used Versamark and Simon Says Stamp Rose Gold embossing powder to stamp the sentiment over the top and set it aside. 

I used my Daniel Smith watercolors to color the rest of the image, including the straw.  When dry, I adhered the sentiment sleeve on top.   For the base I used 85lb Neenah Solar White and splattered Dylusions spray in black using a paint brush.  When dry, I popped the coffee up on foam squares. 

For the straw, I cut a small slit in the top of the cup and inserted the straw.  I added liquid adhesive to ensure it stayed in place and a glue dot on the other end to keep the dimension.  As a finishing touch I added Glossy Accents all over the 'plastic' bubble of the coffee cup and called it done.

I really enjoyed making this card - it's fun to play around with dies and can be hard to keep it Clean and Simple!! Make sure you join us this week over at AAA for a chance to win.  Be sure to check out our Guest Designer Judy's card - it's fabulous.  

Have a wonderful weekend!
