But First, Coffee

But First, Coffee card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Honey Bee Designs
It's Friday, so I thought a coffee themed design would be a good way to end the work week!  This one is inspired by the current CASE the Designer challenge at Global Design Project.  I was inspired by the repeated stamped image and pretty watercoloring on Connie's card.

For my card, I repeatedly stamped then heat embossed the to go cup from the Honey Bee Stamps Coffee Break stamp set on a kraft panel. The panel's edges were inked with distress ink to add some warmth.  For a pop of color, I used a red Clean Color marker to watercolor in the round element on each cup.  The panel was matted on dark brown cardstock to set it off, then adhered to a kraft card base.  For the sentiment, I stamped the "but first, coffee" sentiment from the Perfect Blend set in white pigment ink on a dark brown cardstock strip, then heat embossed the words.  After wrapping the end of the panel with some twine to bring in the twine element found in Connie's card, I adhered the sentiment to the stamped panel to finish my design.

Materials Used:
Coffee Break and Perfect Blend stamp sets (Honey Bee Stamps); Memento Luxe Wedding Dress ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); Tea Dye distress ink (Ranger); Carmine Red Clean Color marker (Zig); Kraft cardstock (Papertrey Ink); Chocolate Chip cardstock (Stampin' Up!); twine (Hemptique)
