Week 15 - Colour Creations Showcase - Early Espresso

Week 15 - Early Espresso
 Hi Everyone, and welcome to week 15 of the Colour Creations Showcase. This week our colour is Early Espresso a beautiful rich Brown colour and part of the Neutral Collection. I have chosen to make a Slim line card as it's been a few years since I last made one.

I thought I would like to make a patchwork card so using The Right Triangle bundle I stamped  the 3 designs in the same size 22 times in all and cut them out using the matching dies. I then arranged them on to a white piece of card and when happy with where I had put them glued them all down and cut off any excess around the edges. I layered this onto a Early Espresso piece of Card and then onto a Whisper White Card Base. I then cut out a scalloped circle and a stitched circle that I layered together and using the Nothing's Better Than Bundle stamped the the coffee cups and the words and then die cut out the other word COFFEE and the cups I place these onto dimensionals and attached to the front of the card.

 For the insert of the card I layered an Early Espresso and Whisper White layer together I glued the last triangle to the top corner and stamped in Early Espresso. I was really happy with how the card turned out and I love the patchwork on the front.

  1. Wow Di. that is a lot of stamping and die cutting but definitely worth the effort for the final result. Your card has such a lovely old fashioned feel - as a quilter I love it! Thank you for joining the Colour Creations showcase with your beautiful Early Espresso card xx

  2. That's a lot of runs through your die cutting machine, Di! Well worth the effort, though - your card is fabulous! Love the patchwork effect of the background, and the way you've showcased Early Espresso.

  3. Wow! Great technique for the patchwork background Di, it must have taken you ages!

  4. Boy, you have put some time into this one, Di, but how awesome does it look?!! Brilliant!

  5. As a quilter, I love the patchwork effect you have created Di.

  6. Your quilted background looks amazing! Well worth the time and effort. It's a great colour to pair with the coffee stamps and dies.

  7. Great patchwork quilted style background.

  8. Such a fun, patchwork card, Diane! Love it!!

  9. This is such a gorgeous card, Di. I really love all those stamped triangles. My patchwork has taken a back seat since I started paper crafting, but your card has taken me on a walk down memory lane. I love your use of Early Espresso here - just beautiful!
