Hello everyone. This is Jean Manis, and I am delighted to be on the blog with a project showcasing the Cuppa Coffee, Cuppa Tea Collection by Sharyn Sowell. I used the collection’s Cuppa Love die set to create a mixed media friendship card. Let’s take a look!
To begin, I created a card base by smooshing Distress Oxide Broken China ink on Bristol paper. Once the base was dry, I stamped the sentiment. I die-cut the coffee cup, liquid shape, and accent pieces in the Cuppa Love set from manila cardstock and colored the pieces with acrylic paint.
Once the die-cut pieces were dry, I glued the leaf sprigs together in a wreath shape and adhered the wreath to the card base. I glued white cardstock to the back of the liquid shape, glued the assembly to the coffee cup, and glued the cup to the wreath. I added Nuvo Crystal Drops to the center of the flowers. The flowers and hearts were adhered around the wreath.
Using acrylic paints to color die-cut pieces is an easy way to incorporate mixed media into your crafting project!
