I created and shared this coffee-colored card earlier so today I’m going a little bright and colorful! 🙂
I created a long and skinny card with a little bit of masking for my stacked cups! To start I cut a piece of white cardstock to 4″ by 8.” Then I stamped the first mug on the top using intense black ink. I also stamped it on a post-it note and fussy cut it. Then I masked the top mug with the post-it note and stamped the next mug below. I repeated the masking process and stamped four additional mugs. I also stamped the little accents that (to me) make it seem like my cups are wobbly! 😉
Next I masked off the top part of the card and blended a little weathered wood distress ink onto the bottom to ground my cups. Then I colored each mug with a trio of copics to create a little shading. Finally I added a heat-embossed sentiment flag on black cardstock to finish the card! Generally that’s the amount of coffee I need to get through the day (though I tend to avoid the five-high stack!) 😉

Hi, Jessica; thanks for sharing! Most coffee/tea themes bring out all the shades of brown, which I love; but it’s refreshing to see a card with bright colors too. And I love how the stack isn’t perfectly straight – just how coffee should be lol!
