Got Coffee?

Hi crafty friends, today I'm on the Coffee Loving Cardmaker's Blog to share 2 cups of coffee with you.  If you've already had your morning cup, pour another and relax.  Kat Scrappiness has an awesome die called the Layered Coffee Cup Die and it's just the right size to take center stage on any card!  

For today's post I have 2 cards. I wanted the first card to have a "coffee stained" background so of course I reached for my Ground Espresso colored Distress Ink pad and  I "smooshed" (technical crafty term) some ink onto a piece of acetate and then sprayed it with water.  When the ink was moving around I placed the acetate onto a piece of watercolor paper and the results were gorgeous!  I then assembled my coffee cup out of various colors of card stock and patterned paper.

Here is a very handy instruction sheet to show you how to assemble the pieces from the die.

For the koozie section of the die I used kraft cardstock and I stamped a star from the Kat Scrappiness Swatches stamp set.  After that I ran the koozie through my paper crimper to give it a realistic look with some dimension and I added it to the cup with some foam tape.  When the coffee cup was fully assembled I added some paint splatter with the Ground Espresso color to the whole cup.  I just love the added interest paint splatter gives to any project!
For my sentiment I used the Kat Scrappiness "Got Coffee?" die and added it to the side of the card.  This sentiment is awesome and uses a fun whimsical font that is perfect for any coffee themed card.

For my next card I used just the word "coffee" and cut it out 3 times in different colors for a fun look.  I painted the coffee cup with a pink pearlescent color from the Kuretake Gansai Pearls colors watercolor set and I added a heart to the cozy from the "Swatches" stamp set and heat embossed it with Ranger Gold powder.  I placed it on a diamond embossed background and added some fun
Kat Scrappiness Barbie sequins for a feminine touch.
Such a different look with the same die!

If you added the sentiment "Wanna" above this die, it would make a cute card for a friend inviting them to get together over coffee reading "Wanna Get Coffee?"
This coffee cup die makes it easy to create an eye catching card in no time!

That's all for today, I am glad you stopped by! 
Have a great day, I already am!
