Here at DannysCards.com, I am not known for my clean and simple designs. Most of my designs usually fiddle with more pieces than I can imagine, mixing mediums and layering. But this week AAA Cards offered a unique challenge:
One layer and coffee -- which reminded me, I knew I had a coffee card stamp set I've never used before. I also went through some other stamps and found a latte cup sketch stamp.
Earlier this year (around May), I invested in a ton of Copic markers. I've yet to find my purchase worthwhile until this AAA Cards blog challenge. It really allowed me to color in new and dynamic ways.
For my first submission, I worked on this stamp from Tim Holtz. I've only ever used this card in conjunction with its accompanying emboss folder, so it was nice to see it stand alone.
For my second card (non-submission), I took the same stamp and colored it. But I decided to speckle around it to give a little more depth.
For the next round of cards, I used a stamp set from Jillibean Soup. More donut centric than coffee centric, I went with a repeated stamping technique. I was pretty happy with the end result:
I went for one more design stamp wise, but it was far less dynamic than I thought it would be. Nevertheless, I figured I'd showcase what it looked like. Exactly what kind of donut the yellow one is? I'm not sure. Lemon? Some off-cream? Definitely not glazed. Any who, here it is:
Thanks for checking out my CAS design. Check back later this weekend for another new Halloween design.
