Coffee Card Series – clean and simple

Hello Everyone,

Welcome back to my Coffee Card Series! It is Day 3 and I have something clean and simple yet very funny for you. Perfect for a lazy Sunday.

First I took a piece of dark brown cardstock and temporarily adhered the Newton’s Nook Designs Mug stencil on it with Pixie Spray. I needed to fix it because I planned to apply clear embossing ink and it may hav shifted my stencil otherwise. I used the Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Dabber but you can use clear embossing ink with any ink applicator. I heat embossed it with Gina K Designs Dark Chocolate embossing powder. I love the tone-on-tone shiny look!

Then I cut a 2 inches wide strip of cream cardstock and stamped a funny sentiment on it from the Sweet’n Sassy Coffee Talk stamp set with clear embossing ink. Then in a separate container I mixed a little bit of the dark chocolate embossing powder with Gina K Designs Metallic Blush and Altenew Rose Gold. I used this mix to heat emboss the sentiment. As I use a Misti for stamping, it was easy to repeat the process another time: it gives a more raised and smoother result.

When the sentiment cooled down (literally 3 seconds) I stamped a cup from the same stamp set next to it with brown hybrid ink and quickly coloured it with Spectrum Noir Triblend markers: Earth Brown Shades and Gold Brown Shades, Before adhering the sentiment strip to the background I added some glitter cardstock mat to it and used a clear shimmer pen on the mug.

I know my coffee lover husband will understand the joke: we always tease each other with our common addiction to coffee. He likes the Turkish style, very roasted. I love my latte with coconut milk, yummy.

I will link this up to the Coffee Lovers Fall/Winter Blog Hop.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration and will pop in again tomorrow.

See you,
