It's Bean A While - So Suzy Stamps
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:
