ID: MC June/18 - Coffee Cup - ECD Hugs - Coffee, Friends & Bookmark - HB card
size: 5"w x 7.5"H

Created: June 13, 2018

I just got the newest stamps from Suzanne - coffee and tea related. LOVE THEM

I'm using an A Way With Words dies  "Hugs"  from Elizabeth Craft Designs, also available on Quietfire Design HERE

I 'm also using a bunch of the newest stamps and a couple from a previous release from Quietfire Design 

("But First, Coffee" 8pce set); ("Tea" 7pce set); ("Tulips" design element); ("Life Doesn't Have To Be Wonderful to Be Perfect"); "Crackle Background")

And on the inside using a clear stamp set from Quietfire Design "Birthday Collection" 8pce set also available on Elizabeth Craft Designs HERE



Cut a side folded card in the shape of a coffee cup. Cut the handles. Inked a craft mat with Distress Oxide pads "Picked Raspberry", "Fossilized Amber" & "Worn Lipstick", misted with water and drew the front of the card through the ink. Dried.

Randomly stamped parts of the crackle stamp inked first with the Raspberry, and then did some areas with the amber, clear embossed.

Did the same for the handles, then adhered them to the card.

Cut another piece the same shape/size as card from white cardstock and adhered to inside front to create a pocket for my tag.

Stamped the quote on a scrap piece of white cardstock inked with Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Trimmed down to fit cup and sponged edges with Distress "Picked Raspberry" and "Mustard Seed". Dried. Stamped the tulip off the edge with the black, clear embossed and colored with Prisma colored pencils.

Die cut the "Hugs from dark brown cardstock and adhered to front.


On the inside: stamped the tulips with the black and clear embossed, colored with the Prisma colored pencils.

Stamped the quote with the black and clear embossed.

Since some of the front ink spilled over to the inside, I used a Prismacolor Premier marker "Canary Yellow" to edge the sides.

Created the bookmark on white cardstock. Stamped the various quotes and cups using Distress Picket Fence and embossing with white embossing powder.

Stamped the coffee rings with a brown then over stamped with black.

Die cut the top edge using a Sue Wilson "Holly Lattice Frame" which had a nice shape and stitched edge. Punched a hole.

Sponged edges and around words with various Distress browns.

Colored the cups with some watercolors (they were on my desk...)

Dried everything then sandwiched between newsprint and ironed off the white embossing.

Added some Pearlescent ink to the coffee steam and tied a bow (was salmon colored ribbon inked with the yellow Prisma marker)
