It's Bean A While - So Suzy Stamps

Hi Everybody,

I made a coffee card with the new So Suzy Stamps release

My stamp supplies:

I will show you that even it you mess up a bit you can get a decent card with a few tricks.
Lets get started:

I stamped the cup and spoon onto white card stock.

Stamped it again and die cut the cup and fussy cut the spoon.

Added some coffee stains/splatters with a stencil onto my card stock. The nice thing is, that you don't need to mask anything.

Marked where the spoon will be and cut an opening for it, so I can tuck it under the cup handle.

See, what I mean?

Glued teh cut out cup onto the card base, added the spoon as well as the Hello into the center of the cup. I also added some shadows to give it some dimension. and added the sentiment. I don't know if you can see, that the sentiment is not parallel to the card. I saw it immediately and could not tolerate it. But I had put in too much effort to start over....

So I took a stitched border die and lined it up with the sentiment (used a ruler to make sure it is parallel) and die cut it. Mounted it onto a Kraft card base and added some white gel pen accents to the coffee foam. The other thing that happened, when I ran it trough my big shot to trim it it got a smudge. No big deal, I just added some more drops - you see them to the right of the spoon. Balances everything out, so a happy accident!

You may know this already, but just in case you don't.... We have a new feature here at So Suzy's. 
Every month one of our DT members has a birthday you get on stamp with every order free.
This is Tracy's and Suzy's birthday month and THOSE are their stamps:
We also have a sale going on at this month:

Happy Stamping!

This is sooooo cool or hot...whatever. The coffee splash, the spoon, the white reflections on the coffee combine to make this look delicious. So worth the time and trouble you took. And I dearly love that sentiment.
