After I saw the new Stampin' Up catalog, the FIRST set I added to my wish list was Perfect Blend. As a self-admitted Starbucks addict, it called my name...in a really loud and overly-caffeinated way. Lol! I have also been itching to crack open my new Soho Subway DSP. I'm originally from New York...NOT the "city" but "upstate". Something about this paper and the stamp set make me long for a trip back East...and coffee. Yes, I need coffee!
For the embossed element, I used both "dry-embossing" on the background DSP and the scalloped edge border. I "wet embossed" the coffee cup and attempted to shade it with a sponge dauber and a marker. I suck at distressing, I know this. Oh, and the sentiment is MEANT to be distressed...It wasn't me being a messy stamper. Haha! I paper-pieced, cut-out and popped-up the image. It's a simple card, with little details...I kind of like it! All of the supplies used to create this card are listed at the end of this post.
Please join us over at the Paper Players this week. The challenge is open through Friday, July 5th, 2013 at Noon (PDT). Stop by and say hello to the rest of the Design Team. They are an amazing group of gals and I am honored to work with them every week.
