IRISH COFFEE FOR SOMEONE?
Hi friends, Martha Lucia here with an irish coffee to share with you! Have you see this beautiful clovers and swirls in the Unique Laser Store? I have to tell you that as a Colombian girl, we don't celebrate St. Patrick's but here in the US I saw a lot of ideas that inspired me to create something beautiful for you, so I decided to combine a few cultures in my creation.
I created a frame with a big size, 8"x10". This is perfect to use in our office or kitchen, near to the coffee maker. With this in mind I changed the traditional phrase Kiss Me, I'm Irish with Drink Me, I'm Irish.
These were my main materials, all from our Store. I used a different pieces. The top clover is a beautiful piece of 1"x1" that come in a package of ten and is called Clovers. The little square is a scrap piece from Kennyscrap and the large clover is a Special Order Item from Unique Laser Designs.
I painted them with Watercolor Green the clovers and the swirls with Yellow Paint, letting them dry for a few minutes.
Then using a Thinlits Little Letters and the big shot , I cut all my letters using the same colors. I pasted the green letter over the yellow a little bit moved to the right to give dimension to each one.
To compliment the decoration of my frame, I stamped a coffee cup with classic Ink Early Espresso over Very Vanilla Cardstock using the stamp set Perfect Blend from Stampin Up. After the image was stamped, I cut it with scissors.
After this, using my Get-It-Straight Laser Square from KellyCraft I aligned all the letters and embellishments over the paper base and pasted them one by one using a liquid glue. I started with the letters and and then with the embellishments.
Here some details of my laser cuts:
See you very soon with another Unique idea. Enjoy your Irish Coffee!
