Hi Creative Friends,
We are super excited to feature another of Amy Tsuruta’s awesome creations! This time she is using the Sweet Holidays stamp and die set by Papertrey Ink. This adorable set fits right in with the Coffee Lovers fun she has on Instagram – check it out on her IG account – @craftee1
Hi Foiled Fox Friends! It’s Amy and I’m back with a project that features Papertrey Ink. If you’ve been following me for a bit you might know that I love all things caffeinated. I was so excited to see the Sweet Holidays set! I decided to go a different route for my card design and used the coffee mug as the background for this card.
I’ll be honest with you, I’m a big eyeballer on my designs. I don’t usually grab a ruler to measure things out. I literally eyeball things. I decided I needed a bit of help with this card so I made a quick grid with an A2 acetate panel.
The washi strip on the top helps me keep the panel in place and acts like a hinge so I can move things around. I used dots of the Lawn Fawn Jumbo Glue Tube on the backs of the mugs so I have a bit of wiggle room to get things in place.
I’m a big fan of color and contrasting colors. I adore this red and blue combo.
I wasn’t going to add the peppermint sticks but I couldn’t resist. I stamped the base in a pale pink and the stripes in coordinating red ink. The sentiment, from the Winter Greetings set, has been heat embossed in white. I used the coordinating blue ink around the edges of the card to finish things off.
