Hello! Welcome to my blog. If you’re new, my name is Alison. If you’re not, thanks for coming back! Today I am sharing a card that I created for the Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop. This is such a fun hop with a ton of participants and sponsors, so I am excited to be joining in. My card features stamps from Ink Road.
I just had to use the Inked Girl “Alison.” Yup, she was named after me. Lara (the owner of Ink Road) has the coolest naming contests all the time. It is so cool to have a product named after you! I colored her up with Zig Clean Color Markers.
My background was done with one of the stamps from my favorite Ink Road set, called Mug Life. I stamped all of the coffee cups with Iced Spruce Distress Oxide. Then, I applied some of the same ink to my palette, and used a brush and water to add shading to the cups. I love this tonal effect.
I stamped a sentiment from the same Mug Life stamp set with VersaMark ink on to a piece of gray cardstock that I die cut with an old Avery Elle banner. I then used Detail White Embossing Powder from Stampendous on it. I mounted my background on to gray cardstock, and then added a few sequins from the Doodles Paper Playground Sparkle Blend called, Storm Cloud. That Blend has the perfect shades of blue in it.
I really enjoy making backgrounds with my stamps. The Mug Life stamp set has a bunch of images that are perfect for doing that. I am hoping that I’ll have another card for the Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop this week, but I am running out of time! But for now, thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
