What's Perking?

Good afternoon :o)

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend! We're off out with some friends tonight to go and see Mrs Brown's boys D'Movie and then go on for something to eat. I know Mrs Brown's boys isn't to everyone's tastes, but we love it...can't wait :oD

Here is a little card I did for the 'Stamping with Style' Masterclass for the April 2014 issue of Crafts Beautiful.

What you need...

Stamps: Breakfast Club - The Alley Way Stamps
Patterned papers: Color Crush 6x6 Pad - KI Memories
Card stock: white
Promarkers: Cool Aqua, Magenta, Pear Green, Turquoise
Ink pads: Onyx Black, Vintage Sepia, Smokey Gray - Versafine
Embossing powder: Detail Clear - Stampendous
Ribbon: turquoise velvet
Heat gun

What you do...

Stamp three mugs and steam in Onyx Black ink, apply embossing powder and heat. Colour in the images and cut out.

Stamp three shadows in Smokey Gray ink along a piece of white card 7cm x 15cm. mount the mugs onto the shadows using foam pads.

Stamp the 'What's perking?' phrase with Onyx Black and heat emboss. Over stamp the coffee stain with Vintage Sepia. Punch or die cut into a circle and mat onto a larger circle of aqua paper. 

Cover a 15cm square blank with a slightly smaller piece of dotty paper. Mount the mug strip onto aqua paper 7.5cm x 15cm and adhere across the blank.

Finish by attaching the sentiment to the top right and a length of knotted ribbon along the bottom of the mug panel.

The lovely thing about this paper pad is that it is double sided; on the reverse of each patterned sheet there is a co-ordinating plain colour.

Check out the Crafts Beautiful website for more ideas, inspiration, projects and free downloads - you won't be disappointed.

So, that's me for now, thanks for popping by and I'll be back soon.

Oooh! Don't forget that this month's challenge ends tomorrow at 11:55pm (GMT+1), so you still have time to get those entries in. xx
