{Mixed Media Tutorial} Melissa Gets Shakin' with Coffee

 Hi! It’s Melissa here with a fun mixed media tutorial to share with you today. I have a coffee shaker gift tag/gift card holder to share with you. I hope you enjoy seeing the process I used to create it.

 1. Created a background with Brusho Color Crystals and die cut with the smallest rectangle from the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies.

2. Die Cut a rectangular frame with the Coffee Cup Silhouette Die.

 3. Die cut a white coffee cup. (I did not use the BrushoCoffee Cup in this project.)

 4. Masked off the frame and the steam.

 5. Sponged red ink onto the cup.

 6. Added silver embossing paste with the Dots All Over stencil.

7. Cut shaker back panel with the middle sized Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies and stenciled with Bubbles Stencil and Dots All Over.

8. Created gift tag base/holder out of kraft cardstock.

 9. Added acetate and assembled the front of the shaker.

 10. Created shaker frame.

 11. Added coffee beans and assembled shaker.

 12. Covered back side of the tag/holder with red copy/printer paper and added a "hugs"word die cut.

13. Attached shaker to the front side.

That's all I have for today. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and look forward to reading your comments!

Grace & Peace,

  1. Love all the color and texture, super cute.

  2. What a wonderful project and a great result - thanks for the 'how to'.

  3. So clever and great idea for a coffee gift card. I love how you used all your products. Not until now..did I ever think to try using my Bubbles stencil for a Bokeh technique design. Your background gave me the idea...TFS and turning on the light for me :-) Hugs, Nancy
