Today is National Coffee Day Blog Hop and The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store is one of the sponsors! So that means we are bringing you some fun coffee themed designs and offering a sweet extra-- blog candy!
Leave a comment on this post telling me YOUR favorite coffee flavor/drink by midnight, Friday, October 5th, and I will randomly choose a winner. The winner will then be able to choose two items from the Stamp Simply clear stamps and steel dies! The winner will be announced here--on the Dream in Color blog-- Saturday, October 6th.
Let me show you my coffee designs for today, and be sure to use the links below to visit the other designers for Stamp Simply who also will be giving away blog candy!
I began by stenciling Tim Holtz Layering Stencil in "Holiday Knit" onto a cardstock panel using Dreamweaver Embossing Paste. After the paste had dried, I dabbed some Delicata Non Tarnishing Golden Glitz ink. To mute the color a bit, I added a watered down wash of Dina Wakely Media Gesso over the stop of the panel.
I die cut the coffee cup using Stamp Simply's "Coffee or Tea?" Steel die, then stamped it using Stamp Simply's new "A Godly Man" (pine boughs) and Stamp Simply's new "Farmhouse Christmas" (joy sentiment) and the Delicata gold ink. I once again added a whitewash of the watered down gesso, then adhered it to the embossed base using Thermoweb 3D Foam squares.
The poinsettia is die cut with Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia. It also received gold ink on the edges, and the white wash of gesso. Micro beads from my stash act as the center of the bloom, as well as little accents on the coffee cup-- adhered with Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue.
