12 Days of Giving ON NOW!

Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans! Katelyn Grosart here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog to share with you a fabulous coffee tag. Although I’m not a coffee drinker myself, many of my friends are, so this is a perfect tag to give to one of them. The jumping off point for my project was the new Coffee Themed Stamps by Pam Bray & Just Java Aroma Embossing Powder which are both from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies. I combined the stamps and embossing powder with Distress Oxide Ink from Ranger Ink, Patterned Paper from Wild Whisper Designs, a die from Elizabeth Craft Designs, markers from Tombow USA, Superstock from Creative Scrapbooker Magazine and adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, I was able to create my fabulous Life Happens…Coffee Helps! Tag. You’ll want to grab a cup of your favourite beverage as I share with you how to recreate my tag at home.Coffee Tag Designed by Katelyn Grosart | Creative Scrapbooker MagazineTo start, use a blending tool with foam to blend Walnut Stain, Vintage Photo and Gathered Twigs Distress Oxide Ink over top of a Distress Tag from Ranger Ink.
