Expresso My Thoughts

Hi there! I am Jaded Blossom's March guest designer! I want to start off by thanking y'all for stopping by my blog this month and showing some serious love during the March release blog hop. I have enjoyed this release so much, and hope you did too! Jaded Blossom's designs are so cute, I just had to make this card!

This is a simple, and postage friendly card, and could be easily be made into a tags. The lovely images are from the Coffee Candies set and the sentiment is from Coffee Break set. (Hope you got the bundle, during release). Stay tuned for a pictograph!!

 OK, lets get started!
Start by stamping all your images into trimmed Copic friendly paper (alcohol marker friendly paper works too). Then using a round die cut or the bottom of a glass, pencil in your circle.

Using your gray markers shade the images placed on outer circle, and using a light gray marker color in the background. (Tip: erase your pencil markings at this point)
Color in your inner circle individual images. Remember to stay within your circle!
Color your inner circle. I selected the same color to shade in the circle to match the sentiment card stock. 
Trim your card stock and heat emboss your sentiment

Pretty simple, right?! I loved the way this turned out and the coffee's from the Coffee Candies are adorbs. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and I can't wait to see what you make with Jaded Blossom's March release of Coffee Candies and Coffee Break.

If you have not yet gotten your March release, be sure to stop by the Jaded Blossom Store:
