I love clear stamp sets, and what I try to do every time I get a new set is stamp as many scraps as I possibly can, fussy cut them and color them all. That gives me a lot of options when I’m about to put together a card. That is exactly what I did with the coffee cup stamps from Fill me Up by Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps. Today’s card is one of those clean and simple numbers created with previously stamped pieces on an also previously painted background. You see, I find it to be extra productive to make backgrounds and color stamped images in advance and keep them in a special basket until it is time to make a card. It often proves to be a magical process when you end up finding every coordinating piece you need in the same forgotten spot of your craft room!
CAS Coffee Card with Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps
Not long ago I shared on YouTube how I make these watercolor washes for my card backgrounds. I use student grade watercolors, but I love the results I get with them. I am also using a special shimmery metallic paper on this card called Cryogen White -that I also used for the tutorial- which makes the wash stand out even more.
This set is very versatile, and the images are so cute. It was designed originally for Bible Journaling, but you know me, I try things in different ways and I’ve been trying it out for cards also! You might have seen my latest card using this set here.
I stamped the coffee cups on Premium Cardstock and the cup holders from Kraft cardstock. I used a precision knife to cut out the hearts from the cup holders and mounted them with foam squares to add dimension. I adhered those to the watercolored background and finished them off with a coffee word I cut with my Cricut Explore Air 2. So yes, it is a very clean and simple card with a dramatic look with the striking colors and wash on the background.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. Until next time!
