Today is the first challenge of 2017 over at A Blog Named Hero! The challenge theme for January is “New to Me.” Just dig out anything new to you in your stash or use a new technique to create a card! Easy peasy!
Right At Home Stamps is sponsoring and we’re showcasing two of their brand new stamp sets!
I used How Have You Bean? along with Hero Arts’ LOL set to create a little smart phone message.
The phone was stamped in black ink and fussy cut before applying Glossy Accents to it. I wanted the phone to have a realistic shine! Once the Glossy Accents was dry, I selectively stamped the sentiments and coffee bean images. The coffee beans were colored with a Copic marker. Three tiny gold sequin stars were adhered as embellishments. The finished phone was then attached to the kraft card base using foam dots to add a little dimension. The polka dot washi tape was added last.
I just love this particular sentiment! It’s so true for me right now when life gets hectic. There’s nothing quite like a soothing cup of hot coffee to sip on at the beginning of a day to ease into things!
I hope you’ll join in this month’s challenge! There’s lots of excitement ahead over at A Blog Named Hero this year, so you’ll want to keep up-to-date by participating in the monthly challenges or follow along on Facebook, Instagram & Twitter.
Happy New Year!
