Do you ever find yourself playing with product, not knowing what will come of it and finish with a fun project! This was the case with this coffee card! I started by playing with some Ranger Distress Oxide Inks, masking off the outside border. Once the colours were placed I used this fun Pam Bray stamp from Emerald Creek to stamp over the coloured centre. Next I masked away the centre, so that I could use the same stamp around the border! Fun & simple! This was the perfect background for a fun, chipboard coffee cup from Southern Ridge Trading Company. The chipboard piece was embossed with Emerald Creek’s Just Java Aroma Embossing Powder – smells as good as it looks! I outlined the words of the chipboard cup with a Ranger  Dylusions’ paint pen and added some ‘steam’ with a Distress Marker. Coffee cheers to you!

My son Jack thought the beans were raisins and had been fiddling around to open the bag.

This is it.  Life happens. Coffee is important to me.  I crave it. I drink it black and I like it super hot.  I don’t re-heat because it never tastes right after that.  I like to drink…
