I am a coffee drinker and I love to have a cup first thing in the morning. Even in the summer! My little kindergartners always tell me I smell like coffee and I seem to get a lot of coffee gift cards from them. I carry my mug around a lot, but I think it is more of a comfort thing than that I actually drink that much coffee. I actually used left over coffee to stamp on today’s card, along with stamps from Just For Fun.
I started with layers of blue, cream, white, and brown. Then I used my cup and dipped it in coffee and stamped some rings across the layers. Some of it ran a bit which added some puddle marks. I let this dry and stamped the sentiment, A Latte, in red. I heat embossed the coffee beans from the Coffee Unmounted Sheet, cut them out, and layered them on the card. The picture makes them look different colors but it must just be the angle.
The main image is Latte' Love, which was heat embossed. I lightly water colored this, but actually painted the brown sections with coffee and added a few coffee splatters. I stamped the heart from the image a second time, embossing with red, cut it out and layered it on top. To create the foam, I used Dimensional Glue and Twinkling Clouds Sparkle N Soft flocking. Looks almost good enough to drink.
This card is also being entered in the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.
Just For Fun has a great assortment of coffee themed images and sayings, so I am sure I will be sharing more cards with this theme.
