National Coffee Day!!!

 Hi guys!!
I'm hopping (all by myself) celebrating 
National Coffee Day!! Lots of prizes and inspiration will be 
found over at Coffee Loving Cardmakers!!  So get your coffee and settle in~

 I'm creating with
Blue Knight Rubber Stamps, Darkroom Door and
 Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. 

                                 I have some quick and easy steps to creating this card for your
                                                                     coffee lov'in friends!!!

Step 1:  Create a background for your card using Distress Oxide inks.
I used 3 brown tone colors.  I was going for a coffee color~
Stamp the image using Archival ink/Jet Black.

Step 2: Color in the image with Distress Oxide inks watered down.
They work just like watercolor paints. So easy!! Stamp a couple background
 images over the focal (cup and books). I used a light gray ink and black when
 doing this.

Step 3: Use 3D adhesive to add dimension to the card front.  Double mat and
adhere with tape runner.

Products used:
Blue Knight Rubber Stamps: Beau-tea-ful
Darkroom Door: Number Medley, Lots of Labels
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: Crafty Foam Tape 108'
E-Z Runner Grand White Permanent Dispenser
Other: Tim Holtz Distress Mixed Media Heavystock,
Distress Oxide ink, Archival ink, Stampers Anonymous 

Thanks for stopping by~
