Watercolored Coffee Card – Coffee Lovers Blog Hop


I scream, you scream, we all scream for… COFFEE!!! If you know me, you know I love me some coffee! I put a little dab of Coffeemate Peppermint Mocha Creamer in my coffee and sip away! And as a special treat? The frosted coffee from ChickFilA! Soooooo good! It’s the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and I knew I just had to play along! It’s open to anyone so I encourage you to check it out by clicking HERE!

To create my coffee themed card, I used the Perfect Blend stamp set. I stamped the cups onto a white watercolor card base  with Versafine Vintage Sepia pigment ink and then heat set it with clear embossing powder. Then I added some watercolor to the cups with my Mission Gold Watercolors. I distressed the edges with some Ground Espresso distress ink (of course I had to add this color because of the name of the color alone) and added some Coffee Splotch details using some Wild Honey distress ink and the Coffee Splotch stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop.


Well, I’m thirsty now so I think I’ll go and brew myself a cup of joe! LOL! 🙂 I hope you guys have a great day!!!!
