Happy Wednesday stamping friends! And Happy November 1st! Today I’m sharing a coffee-lovers card with the awesome Perfect Blend Stamp Set and Coffee Break Stamp Set. A little masking and watercoloring with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers make for a bright and colorful coffee card!

A background was die cut from Bristol Smooth Cardstock using an A2 Double Stitched Rectangle Die. Greetings from the Perfect Blend Stamp Set were stamped along the top edge of the background with Versafine Onyx Black Ink. The scripty “latte” word was stamped with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Rouge Embossing Powder.

The coffee cup images from the were stamped along the bottom edge of the rectangle with Versamark Ink, masked so they can slightly overlap, and then heat embossed with Nuvo Clear Embossing Powder.

The images were watercolored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a water brush pen.

Once the watercoloring was dry, watered down Broken China and Picket Fence Distress Paint were flicked over the background for distressing.

Glossy Accents was applied to parts of the design to finish the card.
