Coffee Greeting Card Gift Set!

Karla here today, and I am sooooo excited to announce my first design post for the Scrapendipity Way Of Life  blog!  You can find me posting here every Tuesday!

This week I wanted to share a card set I made featuring the Tim Holtz coffee blueprint stamps. I coloured them with Prismacolor Markers, which are alcohol based, and gel pens. After colouring my images I cut them out with Spellbinders Nestabililities dies and my Cuttlebug and then layered them on some papers from the Echo Park Made From Scratch Collection and some Gorjuss Girl paper.

I wanted to make a coordinated set of greeting cards that my daughter could give as part of a teacher gift at the end of the school year. Holy cow, that's coming up soon!

Inside and Envelope - 
I stamped a Tim Holtz sentiment stamp inside using Faded Jeans Distress Ink and then used a CTMH coffee stain stamp to add details. The sentiment on the envelope is from the same CTMH set. I still wanted to keep the inside and envelope fairly clean and simple, but wanted to tie it together with the 'coffee' theme. And, of course, I had to add a little Distress Ink ;)
