Warm Thanks

 This is my sample card for the Clean and Simple Challenge, called Take the Chill Off, at Splitcoaststampers, which I am hosting.

I am in need of a thank you card, so this was the perfect opportunity to make that card. 

As I wanted a clean card, I did not add any layers to the front of the card. I stencilled glimmer paste on to my card base, making sure I did not use all my white space, as I like having just the card stock in some areas and I need a space to stamp my sentiment. I set the card base aside to dry, which does not take long at all. 
 I then die cut the coffee mug using distress watercolour paper, along with another die cut in the white cardstock. I painted the mug and frame using Color Burst powders in Lemon Yellow, Ultramarine Blue and Turquoise. Once dry I added Wink of Stella to the coffee steam.  In my Misti I stamped the card base with the sentiment using Ranger Archival ink in Manganese Blue. I then attached the mug frame using foam tape, which I cut to fit.
 Moving to the inside of the card, I die cut a panel using my Wonky Stitched die. I placed the panel in my Misti and stamped the mug with the Manganese Blue, and the thanks with Ranger Archival Paradise Teal. I stamped the rest of the sentiment on navy cardstock using white embossing powder and attached to the panel using thin foam squares. It is not in the picture as while I was typing this I noticed that I failed to add the Wink of Stella to the steam, hence I have since done that. lol
I hope you have enjoyed this card and wish to thank you for visiting my blog.

  1. Oh, Kia, what a gorgeous card! I love the colors, and the steamy cup is fabulous against the glimmer paste. I see you use a Gemini Jr. Do you love it? Would love to know more. Keep warm, sweet friend! Hugs and love! xoxo
