Hi friends! Happy Saturday! Please join us in welcoming special guest Cheiron Brandon as she shares this fun and colorful card! Read on to learn more and enjoy!
Hi there crafty friends, it’s Cheiron here and I have a sweet little card for you today combining the Tim Holtz Sizzix Cafe Colorize die and tons of fun new Idea-ology papers. This card is simple to make and the Colorize Tea cup makes the perfect embellishment.
First, we will cut and assemble the Colorize die. I used some of the brand new Idea-ology Kraft Stock to cut my shapes. This kraft stock comes in 3 color packs (Cool, Warm and Neutral) and has a nice smooth finish. I used the Cool and Neutral to create my card. I took out all the dies for the little tea cup and you will see they are engraved and say Tea 1 -Brown, Tea 2-Brown, etc. Instead of browns, I selected a bunch of different hues of blue to create my cup . For the steam, you will need hues of grey, but go with what you have. I inked the edges of all the pieces with Vintage Photo Distress Ink before I assembled them.
Once the cup, was assembled, I created a background using a piece of brown Kraft Stock that I had embossed with the Swirls embossing folder and inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I added some of the paper from the Backdrops Volume 2 pack to the bottom of my swirls piece to ground the cup, and added the cup with foam tape to give it dimension. I placed the swirls panel on a thin mat of black, then foam taped the panel onto a floral panel which is also from the Backdrops Volume 2 (all inked on the edges with Vintage Photo).
To complete the card, I added an Idea-ology sentiment Label Sticker and some Metallic Droplets. I hope you enjoyed this little tutorial and a closer look at incorporating these beautiful Kraft Stocks into your projects.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and thanks to Cheiron for being our guest!
