Sugartree Stamps Hug in a Mug and Coffee Loving Cardmakers


Hi! It’s Sue here today. It’s the start of Coffee Loving Cardmakers Spring/Summer Coffee Hop today. I made a card using a digital kit from Sugartree Stamps, which is exclusively available at a2z Scrapbooking etsy store. Here’s my card.

I copied the “iced coffee” stamp onto a word document twice. I sized them, so one would be larger than the other and flipped the larger one (so the straw would be on the right).  I printed them twice – once on regular printer paper and once on cardstock. I carefully fussy cut the printer paper one and then using patterned paper, cut the body of the cup and the coffee sleeve (which I’ve recently learned is called a zarf), using the printer paper outline as a template. I also fussy cut the cardstock iced coffee images. I adhered the printed paper to the coffee cups and added some color and shading with Copic markers. For the background, I used a mini stencil from Tim Holtz’s Mini Stencil set 3, which is a mini version of his Splatters stencil, and ground espresso distress ink, applied with an ink blending tool on a kraft card panel. The sentiment, from the same digital kit was printed onto natural cardstock, trimmed and adhered to the card panel. I adhered the large cup and popped up the small cup for a bit of dimension.
