I'm not a big fan of the coffee, actually only thing I like about it, is it's smell. But I did enjoy playing with all the new coffee stamps which SNS revealed this month. On my Today's card I used Expresso Yourself Stamp Set #699.


Coffee cups are stamped and paper pierced with three different pattern papers. I also added some shading with Promarkers. Lids are inked with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Clear Detail EP. I also added a green flourish die cut behind the cups.


Sentiment is stamped with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Brown Fizz EP. Sentiment layer is inked with Evergreen Bough Distress Ink and I draw a frame with VersaMarker pen and heat embossed with Brown Fizz EP.
 

Background layer is stamped with Evergreen Bough Distress Ink. I used same sentiment all over the layer. It fits perfectly, like a puzzle piece, side by side. You can't even tell that the sentiment is originally in two rows. After stamping I covered words with Clear Detail EP and heat embossed. Edges are inked with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Brown Fizz EP.

The new SNS Creative Challenges also begins today, with lots of prizes and recognition badges.  The theme is always Anything Goes using Loose Glitter, Embossing Powder, and or Flock.

  31. I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't like coffee (I too like the smell when it's being ground but otherwise I don't like the taste). I'm a Pepsi addict.
    I would use this stamp for my friends - lots of them drink gallons of coffee.
    thanks for sharing a cute card.
