Mmmm.... Coffee, Anyone?


Helloooo!  I recently got the Zen Coffee Cup Layering Dies and I wanted to try them out using patterned paper. I cut one solid outline cup in white, then the filigree flower from patterned paper and adhered it on top of the solid diecut using bookbinders glue in a fine nozzle applicator.  For the shadow I smudged Distress mini pads in Spun Sugar and Shabby Shutters across the card, rubbed with a piece of kitchen roll then splattered water and blotted.  The sentiment is from my set And Coffee.

This is going into the CAS Mix Up challenge - dimensional diecuts (+ stamping + my choice splattering)



STAMPlorations are having a coffee-themed sale here, so if you're thinking of stocking up on coffee-themed stamps, get on over.
