So enough excuses and on to this week's challenge for Drunken Stamper's ! The challenge is to create a card COFFEE related ! Well that is an easy one right ? I KNOW I have stamps of coffee related things here but for the life of me , I have stored them SOMEWHERE and they have hidden themselves so I had to go to plan " B " which may have been Plan " A " regardless as I had something in mind as soon as Peggy and Spike told me what the challenge was . .... Here is my card and then I will tell you all about it ...........
I have this very cool paper pack from DCWV " HOME " stack that I bought at Winner's for cheap and it is a very heavy , glittery paper , both the background and the cup are cut from this stack . The cup , I freehand drew ( I shocked myself as it actually looked like the shape of a mug .... I am no sketch artist ! ) Then I added LIQUID SNOW to be froth and let it dry then heated with my heat gun ( they look like mini marshmellows .... oh well ! LOL ) . I then inked a ready made tag and hand wrote on it . The HELLO is from a stamp set by VERVE` and then punched with a SU flower punch and then inked . Before I taped my mug down , I tried to give it some dimension by stuffing with a bit of cotton so it looks like a full cup ...... Add some ribbon and VOILA !!!! DONE !!! For some added fun , the card can actually become a gift card holder ( that is MY Tim Horton card tucked in the top and does NOT go with the card .... just for visual purposes ! LOL )
Come join us everybody on Drunken Stampers and have a wonderful week .... and HAPPY CREATING !!!
After all this coffee talk , I am off to my kitchen to make one in my Tassimo ...................... I love my " quiet " cup of coffee in the afternoon !!!! ( and then I going to spend a relaxing afternoon in my room playing with my inks and stamps ! )
