Can you ever have too much coffee. Well . . . maybe, but its just so darn good. I’m playing along with the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and this is my 2nd card.
I saw a technique on Jennifer McGuire’s site about using sentiments as a background. You can check out her post here. I realized that over the last year, I’ve collected a number of coffee stamp sets, and decided that creating a background with them would be perfect. I used a variety of sets from Verve Stamp and Sugar Pea Designs.
I used my Misti and organized the sentiments starting in the corner working my way out. I stamped the words on Bristol Smooth in VersaMark ink and then heat embossed it with Brutus Monroe Alabaster Embossing Powder.
I then took my Distress Inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Picked Raspberry, and Salty Ocean and blended them onto the page. To finish, I used my Simon Says Rectangle die and the sentiment from The Verve’s Typewriter Coffee, clear heat embossed it on some yellow card stock.
