Hello crafty friends!! Jana stopping in today to share a card I created using some of the newly released coffee dies from Kat Scrappiness this month. I myself LOVE coffee or anything coffee flavored, so when I saw that we received these dies as part of our Design Team Package, I was super excited and could not wait to begin crafting with them.
To begin, I die cut all my layers from the Layered Coffee Cup Die.
I then added some shading to a few of the pieces by using one of my favorite Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks – Antique Linen.
I also wanted to add some color to the card mat. I used Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks in Antique Linen and Tattered Rose. I applied these colors using the blending tool in no specific pattern. After I was happy with the ink application, I spritzed some water on to the card mat to “soak up” some spots of color.
After my card mat was given time to dry, I wanted to stamp areas of what would look like coffee ring stains. I used the “Coffee Ring” from the 2″ x 3″ Clear Stamps by Altenew and stamped various edges of both my card mat and card base. I stamped these stains using the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide – Vintage Photo to add a darker brown color to the card.
I hope that you enjoyed my card make for today. Remember to use Code: JANA10 at checkout in the Kat Scrappiness Store to receive 10% off of your purchase.
