I have 2 cards to share with you today.

For this 1srt card, I stamped the ‘cup with steam’ image (see here for how I made this stamp)

in my favorite Hero Hues blue dye ink onto white linen cardstock.

Then, I sponged teal ink onto the entire linen panel, over the stamped image.  Next, I die cut the ‘thanks’, matted the panel in blue and attached the teal card base.slide005For this next card, I repeatedly stamped the image onto watercolor paper.

Then, I sponged the same teal ink onto the entire watercolor panel, over the stamped images.  Next, I die cut the ‘thanks’, from blue cardstock twice, stacked the ‘thanks’ and attached a blue card base.

I used the CUTplorations die to make my stamp.CUTplorations-coffeecup-preview

I’d like to play this multi-cup card at  WAW Anything Goes – Challenge Weeks #264-265.

I had a lot of fun using this technique. I loved how the homemade stamp printed the images. I hope you enjoyed your visit and look forward to seeing you next week.

Thanks for stopping by!
