Time to Make the Coffee Card

Happy Thursday Topflight Stamps fans! I am here today with a card as the design team are participating in the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog hop. I am not traditionally a card maker so this should be interesting! You will want to play along but hurry the hop ends tomorrow. There are about a gamillion prizes!! Link to the hop is at the bottom of my post.



Here is the card I came up with using the Crafty Individuals stamp as my main focus & Dark Room Doors Stamp set for accents & the quote. For more info & links to the stamps you can go here.


I started playing with this very detailed, etched rubber stamp while on vacation in Florida this August.  We had the good fortune of a deck overlooking the ocean which I spent every morning with my coffee, soaking in the view. I so miss it!!  
 


Basically painted this in using Prima Watercolor Tropicals set while listening to the waves roll into the beach.


Fast forward to today Sept. 18th where I am adding some touches to make my card.  I need to change it from tea to coffee which was easy to do just by switching out the title with "you perk me up". I wanted the title bold so I heat embossed with Emerald Creeks Burnt Copper which kinds reminds me of... yup you guessed it- coffee!! 

Of course I also needed to add in the coffee rings, which let's face it you would not have with a tea saucer but come on this is art! I love me some coffee rings! Put it all together & voila my card. Here is the link to the Fall Coffee Blog Hop if you want to join in the fun!  Just scroll all the way to the bottom of the post to link up. Contest ends Friday Sept. 22 at 6am pacific.

  2. Pretty! Coloring the image while looking at the ocean must have been heaven. ;) I think I would love to live by the ocean until I watch the news about the hurricanes....then I change my mind. ;)
