Espresso My Thanks
Hi Again Friends!
I am having fun designing cards this weekend and decided to play around with the Pick Me Up Clear Stamp Set (with the coordinating Pick Me Up Dies available as a bundle) along with the Grunge Elements 2 Clear Stamp Set from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps.
I decided to incorporate the CAS(E) This Sketch #195 Sketch Challenge along with the CASOLOGY #220 Coffee Theme Challenge, Addicted to CAS #99 “Coffee” Challenge and the Alphabet “Q for Quick and Simple” Challenge.
I hope you will find the time to visit us at the Sweet ‘n Sassy Blog as well as visit the other challenge blogs- fabulous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
On your craft mat, apply distress inks (I used Vintage Photo, Tea Dye and Rusty Hinge), spritzed lightly with water to blend a bit and pressed a piece of white cardstock into the ink at the top of the panel.
Dry the panel with the heat tool and stamp the SNSS Grunge Elements 2 Clear Stamp Set images with distress ink to mimic the coffee stains and splatter.
Ink the sentiment from SNSS Pick MeUp Clear Stamp Set with espresso distress ink and stamp onto the panel.
Trim the background panel, adhere to espresso cardstock before mounting onto the white card base.
Ink the coffee mug and steam images from SNSS Pick Me Up Clear Stamp Set with espresso distress ink and stamp onto white cardstock.
Die cut the images with the coordinating SNSS Pick Me Up Dies, also die cutting the SNSS Pick Me Up heart die from rose cardstock.
Layer the heart and steam dies onto the coffee mug, use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the heart and steam and mount the coffee mug onto the card front with dimensional foam to finish off the card.
Quick and easy! Note to self- this would be a fun card to create multiples to give as a gift...Christmas is only a few months away!!
Thanks for taking the time to stop by- you are all such an encouragement to me. Hugs and have a blessed week, my friends!
