3-D Love Card by Jenny Gropp

Love this fun dimensional technique by Jenny Gropp!

 
 
I really was in the mood to color! So I pulled out the new Vintage Honeycomb Background once again. Every time I see this I think of Sandy's Hex Chart for Copics. I gave the background a little rainbow makeover and added a little die cut. After all the coloring I couldn't cover it up! 
 
 
AND then.... after I colored in the little hexes I thought it would be fun to make them all glossy! About halfway through I was rethinking that idea! LOL... but kept going. It is vibrant and very shiny in person!
 
 
Copics used: 
R46, R43, YR18, YR09, YR04, Y35, Y11, G43, G46, B41, B45, B26, BV17, BV11, V09, V06
 
 
The die cut heart is popped up for a little added dimension.
 
A little inside stamping from the set "Count the Ways" for that forever friend!

Coffee Time by Laura Fulcher

Fun card from Laura Fulcher using H777 Coffee Time, B13250 Pour Sip Sigh, CC188 Calico, CC196 Lg. Speck background and E13235 Coffee Ring.

 

 
Hi guys!  Today I want to talk about layering Cover a Card stamps to build up a background.  For my card, I started with a kraft notecard and stamped the Calico background on top (CC188) with brown pigment ink.

I liked the Calico a lot, but it looked really regimented for the card I was designing.  I decided to add the Lg. Speck background (CC196) on top of it using the same brown ink.  You can really see the difference you get by adding a second pattern to the mix.  You could use two different inks for this technique for a completely different look.

Next, to tie in with my coffee theme, I stamped the Coffee Ring image (E13235) onto my background with Hero Arts Latte ink (perfect name, right?) 

For the finished card, I added the Coffee Time stamp (H777)) and the Pour Sip Sigh saying (B13250).
 
Have a great day!
