This week, a parcel from Stampin’ Up! was delivered so I got to play with some goodies from the new catalogue. I really liked the look of the ‘Nothing’s Better Than’ stamp set and thought it would make a great card designed to look like a graffitied wall, albeit quite posh graffiti!
First, I stamped my image and writing in black ink.
Next, I used the block coffee cup to add some colour to the image. I didn’t want a plain colour so applied Pool Party and Pretty Peacock using sponge daubers to give an ombre look.
To get card looking like a wall, I ran the piece through my Big Shot in a brickwork embossing folder.
The final stage was to mount the front onto a black layer and then a Bermuda Bay card base. I stamped the coffee cup on the liner and envelope to finish.
For my second card, I used a cocktails theme, and did the same ombre inking for the drink, using So Saffron and Poppy Parade.
Lovely, quick cards but fun and stylish too!
