New month and New Challenge

This month our hostess gave us the challenge to make a coffee theme card.  I just made a coffee theme card for the sketch last month!  So as I was trying to think of another coffee theme idea for a card, I remembered that my oldest daughter had given me a “coffee cup” wall art that I love and hangs in my craft room:

Coffee plaque

I needed a image of a “Good Man” however, and then I remembered Dr. Digi digital stamps had a Super Hero stamp and that became my “Good Man”.  This would also work for a one layer card challenge.  It’s fast and easy.

The Steps:

Step 1:  I created the front and inside sentiments on my computer and printed out the base card.  Before I scored the 8.5″ x 11″ now printed base card, I put I sized the digi stamp of a super hero and put the base card back into the printer and printed the digital stamp.  Then I scored the base at 5.5″ on the long side and folded over for a book fold and trimmed to 5.5″ x  7″.

Step 2:  I cut out a bunch of stars with Gold Mirror card stock and adhered them as shown.  Then I added a shadow under the super hero to ground him with a Copic marker.

That’s it!  Doesn’t get any easier than that!

Thanks for stopping by for a quick look.  Please join the challenge this week because we love looking at your creations!

I have been crafting with paper for several yrs. now. I am a single mother of four grown children (2 boys, 2 girls) and a grandmother of 6 (5 girls and 1 boy). I still work as a hairdresser part time at a beautiful retirement community in San Ramon, CA My passions are: gardening, sewing and crafting with paper while watching my favorite TV shows. I have an amazing dog named Shelby who I just can't imagine life without. I hope, with this blog, that I will inspire, teach, prevent costly mistakes in your journey and well, just have a lot of fun creating.

One thought on “New month and New Challenge”

  1. Love it! To be honest, I wasn’t expecting the “coffee” reference on the inside…I was expecting a “cardmaking” reference. Your daughter must be pleased to know she gave you a great gift that, not only hangs on your wall, but gave you this inspiration. Great card.
