New Coffee Stamps

New digital stamps have just been added to Graciellie Design’s website, including 2 coffee/tea sets just in time for the occasion: Hugs in a Mug and Tea Bag Quotes. I’m using both for today’s card!

Layering and Printing the Stamps

Hugs in a Mug can be colored either as coffee or tea. For my card I went for the tea theme because I couldn’t help using this cute tea bag from the add-on mini set! The images were printed with an inkjet printer on smooth medium weight white cardstock. Inkjet works great with alcohol markers! The fun part about these sets is they come with interactive sentiments you can layer on the coffee cup, plate’s rim and tea bag tag! There are so many different combinations you can get!

I colored the digis with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers… (I’m sharing the coloring recipe on the supplies list.) If you wanna watch how I almost messed up the coloring process click HERE.

Card Layout

Joining Coffee Lovers blog is always a celebration so I had to make this card sparkle and pop with color! I used WOW’s embossing pen to add gold embossing detailing around the plate’s rim and tea bag tag. I fussy cut the tea cup to attach separately on top of a second teacup print. I used 3D foam tape to attach it (same with the tea bag) and although that was not the original idea it turned out amazing with all the dimension from both the coloring and the tape!

Finishing off with Sparkle

I inked the background using distress inks and then I used double sided tape to create a stripes across the card base. Next I poured away this stunning WOW embossing powder that has a mix of color and mica and glitter! Swoon!
