Cool Beans With Caryn

December 18, 2017

Hey there.  It's Caryn here with my take on the Cool Beans stamp set and dies.  As I have mentioned before, at this time of year my mind is solidly on Christmas and as I am staggeringly short of cards this year, every one I make NEEDS to be Christmas!!!  To make my coffee mugs feel all festive I coloured them with red Copics, added a rim of frosty glitter using Rock Candy Distress glitter and stamped a Christmas sentiment from the Retro Ornaments stamp set.

I added a backdrop of patterned paper from the Jewel Collection paper pad and a couple of strips of red glitter Washi tape and finished off with a couple of glitter dots.

Supplies used:

Very Christmas feeling to these cups & card. Like the warmth of the reds, do you think it's worth buying a stamp & die of cups still or are they not going to be so used next year ? Could you advise if you get a spare minute x

Hi Andrea! I don't know if you are aware but there is an active blog hosted by Amy Tsuruta and Chaitala Narla that runs regular hops and challenges all around the theme of coffee. The blog is called Coffee Loving Cardmakers - check it out. I think you'll discover the coffee/tea trend is going anywhere soon!!!
