It's a Brew-tiful day when it starts with a nice hot cup of coffee. My card features the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps set, Brew-tiful Day!, and Just For Fun Rubber Stamps, Coffee Background, stamped with Versamark and then brushed with Cappuccino Perfect Pearls.
Putting It Together
Mmmmm, coffee. I'm actually caffeine neutral. I can drink my usual 4+ shot latte (with coconut milk) and either be up and alert or go take a nap. I drink it for the flavour, but I didn't like coffee until I tried extra strong, very dark coffee (with "milk" and sweetener). Now, I like to start most days with the warm (or iced in summer) brew.
I stamped the Coffee Background stamp with Versamark on the darkest of the Neenah Naturals set.
I then brushed the sticky ink with the dark brown Perfect Pearls. It's perfect that the colour name is Cappuccino.
I stamped the coffee pot and cup from the Brew-tiful Day on the lightest of the set with Versamark and also brushed it with Perfect Pearls.
I love the slightly shimmery, very vibrant colour of the Cappucino on the natural cardstocks.
I pawed through my stash to find the doilies I have gotten in various kits. I was happy to see I still had one of the bright yellow small doilies.
I sprayed the doily with Vintage Photo Distress stain, blended the edges and back with Ground Espresso and Vintage Photo Distress ink, and used a Mini Mister with water and gold Perfect Pearls to add a light touch of sparkle.
I die cut the pot and cup with a Spellbinders die and used Versamark and Perfect Pearls to stamp a sentiment which I die cut with a CC Designs die. I did a dry fit of the elements.
I made a cardbase from dark brown cardstock and started adhering the elements. I attached the sentiment tag with foam mounting tape and used tape runner on just the bottom of the doily, leaving the top to be loose.
I added the pot and cup with foam mounting tape over the doily and added some brown rhinestones.
Inside, since I used a dark card base, I wanted to have a lighter coloured panel to make it easier to add a personal sentiment. I stamped with Versamark and brushed with Perfect Pearls from the Brew-tiful Day set. I also used a decorative punch on the corners as a finishing touch.
