Coffee and Friends Make the Perfect Blend
Hello, fellow crafters!! I hope your week is going well!!
I have a fun card to share with you today featuring the Coffee Love Stamp Set from Scrappy Tails Crafts!! It doesn’t get much better than coffee with friends, am I right? There are so many cute coffee images in this set!!
I began by stamping the coffee images and the sentiment from the Coffee Love Stamp Set with black Copic-friendly ink. I colored the images in with Copic markers and fussy cut them out. There are Coordinating Dies available, but I don’t have them yet, so I just cut them out by hand. As a finishing touch, I added some highlights to the images with a white gel pen.
For the background, I used an actual coffee mug to stamp the “coffee rings”, nifty right?! To do this, I smooshed some Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink onto my glass mat and diluted it with water. I dipped my mug into the ink and “stamped” the ring onto white card stock. I also splattered the panel with the left over ink using a paint brush.
Once my panel was dry, I trimmed it slightly smaller than an A2 size and adhered it to an A2 sized aqua colored top-folding card base.
I die-cut some small hearts from the Scalloped Heart Add-On die set and colored them with the same Copic markers that I used on the stamped images.
The sentiment and all of the images were popped up with foam adhesive for dimension.
I added some clear crystal glaze to the coffee, hearts and the word “blend”. I also added some tiny dots of black Nuvo drops to the chocolate chips. This added the perfect amount of shine!!
Thank you so much for spending a bit of your day with me!! I appreciate it!! Have a wonderful day!!
