Coffee Loving Card Makers Blog Hop - Card #2

Hello!!

Today I'm back with my second card for the Coffee Loving Card Makers!! This summer I used some Birthday money and got this super cute octopus die, but I never got around to using it. So I got to think of a way to use it for the hop and I think it turned out so cute!!!

I started by die cutting the octopus by Spellbinders and then using my Spectrum Noir Harmony Inkpads Ocean Blue, Baby Blue and Midnight to ink up the octopus. I figured blue because whats more winter then blue!!

Then I pulled out Honey Bee Stamps Flakey Friends it has just the right sized coffee cups, scarf and hat for my octopus. I used colored ink to stamp the cups. For the scarf and hat I used my Spectrum Noir Markers to color them up. Then I just fussy cut everything out and adhered them to the octopus!

Next, I cut a strip of white card stock and stamped the Cold Hands Warm Hearts from Echo Park Paper Co - But First Coffee stamp set. I adhered the strip to a snow patterned acetate and then finally to some blue glitter cardstock. Everything went on a cardbase and the octopus was added with foam tape!
