Hi Everyone!

It’s Susan with a smelly card for you today. Yup I said smelly. I think it’s smelly but my husband thinks it smells really good.  It smells like coffee. When my hubby and I were having our coffee and tea (yes I’m a tea drinker) I got what I think was a brilliant idea to use coffee to ‘ink’ up the background panel.

I used some Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Paper, put some coffee onto a plate and dipped the paper into it. I heat set it with my heat gun and then continued this process until I was happy with how the paper was stained. I cut a rectangle piece using a Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Die and sponged some Lawn Fawn Doe Ink around the edges to finish it off.  I showed the panel to my husband and he gave me a look that said ‘why are you showing me this?’ I told him to smell it and then he was impressed.  I would have used chai since that’s what I drink but I only made a cup and my hubby made a whole pot of coffee so he had some to spare.

I used the Coffee Understands Stamp Set from Picket Fence for the rest of the card. I stamped the sentiment and the mugs using Versafine Nocturne ink and cut the mugs out with the coordinating dies.  I colored the mugs in using Prismacolor pencil crayons and adhered them directly to the panel then added the panel to the card base with craft foam.


Happy Stampin’
