Summer Coffee Love with Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps

Hey crafty guys and gals, I'm sharing this fun summer and coffee themed card today for 
Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps.  This month, food and drink themed stamps are on sale, so of course I had to come up with a project featuring my favorite beverage.  You guessed it, coffee!  I'm featuring the sentiment stamp, I Mean Coffee , and the Coffee Cup Heart stamp designed by my talented teammate, Tracy McLennon.

Before I talk about the stamps, let me share a couple of creative details about this card.
First, I hand drew a pair of clouds, fussy cut them and used as a mask on my card while blending my background.  I tore some paper and used the edge to blend waves onto my watercolor paper.





For my cup, I tore the bottom edge and used the edge to create a dark shadow and have my cup appear as if it's been embedded into the sand.  The ink colors I'm using today are Ranger Ink Distress Ink in Twisted Citron, Mermaid Lagoon, Fossilized Amber, Hickory Smoke (for shading my clouds), and Distress Oxide Ink in Vintage Photo for the sand.





This was such a fun card to create and surprisingly easy!  Give it a try!






The July freebie stamp, below, "Birthday Friendship", is yours free with any purchase.  Just be sure to add it to your cart before checkout.
