Slay the Day Coffee Stopper
Loving the new dies by Karen Burniston! This is the knight, which also comes with a dragon. SO CUTE! The "Slay the Day" was printed onto clear sticker paper, using a free font called "Prince Valiant" by Dieter Steffmann.
Coffees make great gifts, and stoppers with a quickly printed label sticker are a great way to personalize them.
The knight was made using the technique Karen used for her gingerbread cookie sheets, in the gingerbread tag book video. I die cut and assembled the knight, and then went over it with Black Soot Distress paint. I am sure stain would work, too. Before it dried, I wiped most of it off with a paper towel so there would be areas left to bring in a worn look. I went over the sword handle with a little bit of gold pearl paint.
The gorgeous background for this latte cup was painted by my daughter, Kara. Thank you, Kara! Love it.
Here's a video showing how I made this! Easy!
