A Little Something to Perk You Up

Hi everyone!

Are you a morning coffee person?  Or maybe tea or cocoa?  For me, it’s usually coffee…the warmth and the bit of caffeine are usually just what I need to get me going on a cold Wisconsin morning. 

Today’s card is a tribute to my cold-morning coffee routine!  How cute is this curly-haired llama with his scarf and cup of coffee? Doesn’t he look cozy and warm?

To make this card:

1.	Mask off the bottom third of a cardstock panel (I used Post-it masking tape) and 
        ink blend a green background so that it is darker at the bottom and fades as it 
        goes higher.
2.	Remove the mask  and cut the panel so that it is slightly smaller than your card 
3.	Stamp your sentiment just below the ink-blended area and set the panel aside.
4.	Stamp the images in Copic-friendly ink, color them with Copic markers, and die cut 
5.	Arrange and adhere your colored pieces to the ink-blended panel. 
6.	Use foam adhesive to pop your panel up on your card base.
7.	Add a few gems for a bit of sparkle!

Thank you for stopping by my blog today!  I hope your morning coffee (or whatever you drink) hits the spot and gives you the perk you needed to face the day!

Have a wonderfully creative day, everyone!

I love to make cards and enjoy trying out new techniques and products. My artistic “style” differs almost daily – it just depends on what I’m making, the look I’m going for, who the intended recipient is, and, well, sometimes just the mood I’m in.
