Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

Time for the fall Blog Hop.  I used Club Scrap's September Kit, Transformation and created a fun Panda Themed Coffee (or Tea rather) card.  Hope you enjoy!!


Let me show you how I made this fun card.  I think this fits in with the fall theme as I only drink tea in the fall and winter.  The rest of the time, it is coffee and of course Iced Sweet Tea, I do live in the South, LOL.


First step was to create the Bamboo and leaves.  Full instructions are on ClubScraps Blog, link:  Faux Bamboo.

I made my Bamboo a little darker than in the tutorial, and I inked with a black pen the line and added detail.  The same with the leaves.  I used 2 colors of green ink and then fussy cut them out.
The leaves and stems were layered onto a printed background from Club Scrap's Transformation kit with dimensional tape.  The leaves were curved and supported with dimensional to give them a 3D look.
The remaining elements were stamped and fussy Cut.  Panda, bubble/words, tea bag and Cup were stamped with Versafine Black Onyx and heat embossed with Clear embossing powder.  The leaves were stamped with Bamboo Leaves by Momento.  After Fussy cutting, the tea-bag and cup were enhanced with Copic markers: E11 and E 13. and Y24.  Happiness was stamped on Brown card stock with versa mark and heat embossed using Platinum by Ranger.

All of the elements were arranged onto Card base with dimensionals and then mounted onto a brown Card base.  The finished card measures 4" X 7".

Cute!!
