New Release - And Coffee


Hello, hello!  I'm here with another 8x4 stamp set, called And Coffee, which is being launched on the STAMPlorations blog today, along with a set from Shery.  This set could be hipster/grunge, or clean and simple, or whatever you want.  I got happy stuck in the hipster/grunge/artsy groove.


For this first card I stamped the cup and saucer in Antique Linen, and the coffee in Tea Dye, then watercoloured everything.


This one was inspired by a few things I'd seen on Pinterest. I'm always drawn to bright watercoloured images.  I stamped in Versafine Onyx Black then set to work with some bright Distress Inks, and Black Soot for shadows.  Love it.  Well, I love them all actually.


So for this one, I started with the coffee cup in the corner, and once I'd coloured it I masked it while I scored some lines for the table.  I'd intended to score every other line but got carried away!  With the mask still in place I swooshed Distress Ink minis then stamped the sentiment.


For this card, the cup and saucer have been stamped on separate card and fussy cut, then I've done some first-, second- and third-generation stamping on the base card, and added a couple of strips of washi tape.

The stamps are available in store with 5% discount.  Leave a comment here and on the main blog for your chance to win this set - commenting is open until 11 December, and the winner will be announced on the STAMPlorations blog on 12 December.
