I love coffee! I love coffee because of my Grandpa 🙂 I remember when I would go visit my grandparents I would be awakened by the smell of coffee and my Grandpa in the kitchen. I would crawl out of bed adn go sit and drink coffee with him.
Let’s start this card with the Stamping Bella Uptown Girl Charlotte Loves to Shop stamped in Memento Ink and colored with Inktense pencils I believe. I remember having a hard time with the gloss left by the pencil and my blending was not happening. I then fussy cut her out and set it aside. Next I cut the coffee cup out of some craft cardstock and some scrap white paper. I ran the coffee cup sleeve thru…what is the name of that machine, the crimper?. I did add some distress ink to the sides to give it a little dimension. The sentiment is from Wplus9, it was embossed with white/glitter powder on a blue distress inked paper. The speech bubble Lawn Fawn’s A Birdie Told Me die-cut. Now onto the hard part of the card for me. For the background I took some white cardstock a zig-zag embossing folder and some ink…. So like normal I put the ink on my embossing folder and then insert the white paper and ran it thru my maachine. For some reason the ink was not leaving a good impression on the paaper. I finally after several tries I got enough ink coverage that I was happy. Lastly I assembled everything on a kraft base and I love it.
