Hi there, hope you've all started your weekends with a bang and have some crafting time slotted in somewhere!! I'm at my Mum's place for the weekend for some much needed crafting and relaxation, and to give Mum a hand around the house. Always nice to catch up with her instead of a quick chat each day!!
I'm up on the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Blog today with a different way to decorate the new To Go Cup Fri-die:
I was playing around with some metallic gold water colour paints the other day and thought some inlaid die-cuts would look good painted with these, so that's how this design was born!!
I started by die-cutting the cup from some watercolour CS. I then die-cut the 4 Petals Fri-dies from it, varying the placement as I went. I used a pink from my Gansai Tambi watercolour palette to colour what was left of the cup. And while that dried I used the same paints but in Champagne Gold to colour the petal die-cuts and then inlaid them into place using washi tape behind the cup to hold them in. This was popped up on foam tape on the card front.
I die-cut the matching cup lid from white CS, glued it to the cup and added some foam tape behind it. The sentiment (from Coffee Talk) was heat embossed in gold on a white CS banner and put on foam tape for dimension. I then die-cut the 'coffee' from Coffee Cup Fri-dies from white CS twice, glued them together and then to the front of the cup. And for a bit more shine I glued on some sequins from the Sistahood Sparkle Sequin Mix.
I hope I've inspired you to try something different with your die-cuts and if your looking to purchase any products from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps don't forget to use my special code to save yourself 15% on your purchase!!
