Twofer Card Challenge #7 - Beverage - July, 2018

Hello there,
Today I am playing at the Twofer Card Challenge a first for me and the Challenge is Beverage.  I have made one Conventional and one Unconventional I hope they meet the criteria.  My first card is an Iced Coffee image, the cup base is made using the Shaving Cream technique on glossy card and then ice blocks stamped on vellum and an acetate die cut covering over the cream.  The cream on top has been dry embossed using the D'Vine Swirls embossing folder from Provo Craft and then covered with the die cut cup lid made of acetate.  I finished off with the straw, coffee beans and the die cut and stamped sentiments.

Thanks to the Twofer Design Team my cards were voted  Winners for the Unconventional Award for July.

For the second card I made a Snowglobe.  I sponged the background with Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, stamped and die cut the image and made a snowdrift with a die cut.  The top of the cup is the base.  I used a Falling Snow Stencil and Embossing Paste to add snow inside the globe.  I then dry embossed the Softly Falling E/Folder on the matt. I watercoloured the Snowman and used my Gelly Roll Pen on the hat, gloves and scarf.  Finished off with the sentiments and some Snowflake Sequins.

  1. Great cards Susan. Your beautifully coloured snowman is one happy in camper in his snow globe. Beautifully done. Thanks for joining us at CAS Mix Up!

  2. Darling cards, Sue! So many great details on both cards and I love that you made a cup into a snowglobe - so clever!! As usual, I envy your card innards - so coordinated with the card fronts!

  3. Susan, I am in love with both your amazing designs! Boy, do I ever want that iced coffee right now as our temps are soaring to a hunnert today! You've made it look so REAL right down to the cover over the delish whipped cream!! And, please, turning it over to make a snow globe? Genius! It is a spectacular and happy snow globe! Well done beautifully finishing the insides, too! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #7! Hugs, Darnell

  4. Fabulous cards, both of them Susan. Love the shaving foam technique on your first wonderful card. The snow globe is a creative and fun idea for the second fun card. Both of your cards are a fabulous addition to the gallery x.

  5. Two amazing cards using the coffee cup die-cut, Sue!! LOVE the marbled look from your shaving cream background. The dry embossed cream on top and the acetate lid are so creative and fun. Great design! And the snowglobe is genius! How cute is that snowman??!! Super cute! :) Love the falling snow in the snowglobe and the dry embossed falling snow on your card front and inside. Thanks for sharing with us at Twofer Card Challenge!

  6. The marbling is perfect for your cool coffee, Sue! Love, love, love how you've turned it to a snow globe! Very clever! Thanks so much for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up!

  7. Wow, very creative, I especially love the snowy one.

  8. I would have never thought in a million years to make a snow globe out of a coffee cup! These are two spectacular cards, Susan. Your shaving cream technique for the coffee reminds me of swirls of cream running through coffee, and the whipped cream is the perfect topping for it! And I adore that snowman in your snow globe! Great Christmas card! Two great cards!! Love 'em! Thank you for joining us at the Twofer Challenge!! Bev
