Seriously! When I saw the Silver Linings die set from Ellen Hutson, my mind went polar opposite of where everyone elses went! It’ a great set. Sunrays. Rain drops… Great scenes can be created with these images. Here is a close up of the set.
BUT not me. I saw the lightening bolt and thought HARRY POTTER! I know! I’m a geek! So, the lightening bolt became Harry’s scar – and why not pair one favorite with another? COFFEE!!!!!!! Enter the Oh Frappe stamp set and coordinating dies…. The sentiment was spelled out using the Basic Alpha die set!
I had to keep the colors of the card Gryffindor colors – which of course is Aged Mahogany and Mustard Seed distress inks with a splash of squeezed lemonade, lol! I blending all those inks onto a piece of Ranger Watercolored cardstock that I die cut with the Inside and Out Diagonal Stitched die cut from My Favorite Things.
After die cutting the lightening bolt, I smooshed my Versamark ink pad over the die cut and sprinkled on clear embossing powder and heat set it! That’s how the got the sparkle! The coffee cup has a thick coating of glitter from the Spectrum Noir Glitter pen….. And the sentiment was also heat embossed! And the stripes??? Enter Impression Obsession Thin Stripes please.
Oh Harry Potter! I see a marathon in my future! Chips and Dip, maybe a little Nutella and Strawberries and lots of Harry!
Move update: The entire house is unpacked and put together with the exception of the garage. Lots of boxes still stand – but that is my husband’s fault! A woman has no place in a hot stuffy garage! My mom left last week and I have cried oceans of tears longing for my parents. I don’t know if that emptiness will ever go away. But I have been trying to stay busy 24/7 but I can stay with 100% certainty I have not gotten a full night’s sleep since I moved here. It is pretty! The house is perfect! But I miss my family.
Alrighty! Thanks for popping in today!! I hope you love my little Harry Potter Coffee card as much as I do! LOL.
