Happy Friday everyone!

Today, I’m sharing my card for the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop. This adorable digital stamp from Craftin Desert Divas is an awesome freebie during this blog hop, so be sure to hop along so you can snag a copy for yourself! (Link at the bottom of this post)IMG_1647

I started this card off by coloring in my sweet little owl in a pumpkin, sipping coffee of course! I used Copic Sketch markers to color it up and I added some details of my own to make it special. I gave the owl a Gryffindor scarf and added polka dots and a witch’s hat to the coffee mug (because when I think of fall, Harry Potter is one of the top things on my list. September 1st, Hogwarts Express anyone?).

After coloring the digital stamp, I used distress ink to add some color to my sentiment and trimmed it down to size. I also created the background using the Distress Oxide ‘Seedless Preserves’ and the ‘smooshing’ technique. After I dried the paper with my heat tool, I added some splatters with a paint brush and the same Distress Oxide color.

I tied some cute brown and white baker’s twine in a cute messy knot and adhered it to my card front. I used foam dots to pop up the owl on top, and for the sentiment as well. I then matted my card front with black cardstock and popped that whole panel up on foam tape before adhering it to my card base. And that’s a wrap!
