A Caffeinated Hello!

Hello! It's Lauren on the blog today sharing this sweet Caffeinated Raccoon that has a caffeinated hello! Don't you just love that cute face!!! I thought she'd look great on the fun Pinwheel stencil. Both are from this months new release. TRHD is a super sponsor for the Fall/Winter Coffee Lover's Blog Hop Nov. 6-13 over at The Coffee Loving Card Makers, so be sure to head over to check it all out. You'll find the link down below.

I started out by dry embossing a white A2 sized cardstock panel. To do this, I ran them through my die cutting machine using an embossing mat along with the embossing plates. Then, using my Cotton Tail blending brush I lightly blended Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink over the panel to make the pinwheel shape stand out. then I trimmed it down slightly and adhered it to a teal cardstock background and then that onto an A2 sized card base.

Next, onto white cardstock, I stamped the word Hello from the Marquee Words stamp set using the picked raspberry ink. I also stamped it onto masking paper and fussy cut the individual letters out.

I then masked the letters and positioned the raccoon over the word so that the word would be under her chin. I stamped her using Black Versafine ink. I took off the masked letters and coloured her using Prismacolor pencils. Then I fussy cut her out. The colours I used were:
Raccoon body: Light Aqua, Aquamarine, Cobalt Turquoise
Eyes and cup: Lilac, Parma Violet, Dioxazine Purple Hue, White
Mouth: Pink

I toped her off with a pink flower and then adhered her to the front of the card using double sided tape.

I hope you are loving the release this month as much as I am. Thanks for stopping by. You can also see this card and my links to other products used on my blog.
