As promised, I am here with a card for the Summer Coffee Lovers Hop. There is still plenty of time to make a project and link up and/or hop along for prizes. Deadline is Friday, June 12th @ 11:59 pm Pacific. I hope you will join all of us!!
Our project is supposed to be summer-themed and nothing says summer to me like vibrant tie-dye colors. Love love love them!!! I had to use them for my fun card.
I made this card for our young pastor who came to my rescue today by making a pot of coffee during Vacation Bible School. A combo of late night and early morning for me and I was in baaaaaaaaaad need! Imagine my desperation when I discovered no one had made any! I am GLAD he did NOT make decaf!! Ha.
I looked through my stamps when I got home and found this silly owl. I thought he looked pretty wired, so I made up this sentiment to go with it. I'll probably write something inside like "Thanks for making coffee. I needed it!" I thought the crazy angles, googly eyes, and the wild tie-dye look (DCWV Tie-Dye Stack) characterized the caffeine high well! I am hoping the black matting makes it look masculine. What do you think?
Do you like the neon starburst tags??? They are much brighter than my camera was able to pick up. I even have an extra pack of them that I will send to someone if you leave a comment by 11:59 pm PDT Friday, June 12, 2015 telling me a good coffee/tea/or cocoa story, joke, or funny brand name or something that will make me laugh! I'll pick my favorite and send this to them. PLEASE LEAVE ME YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS!!!!
You might wonder how I printed the sentiment on my tag. I printed it out on a separate piece of paper first, then washi taped the tag in place over a second sheet of paper. Holding it in front of a window helps to see it better.
I suggest reducing the tackiness of the washi a little first by sticking it to your pant leg or something so it doesn't damage your tag when you remove it. I didn't have any trouble feeding it through my printer. Afterwards, it is important to heat emboss it to prevent smearing. (Guess how I know......Ha!) I also heat embossed my little owl with clear powder after stamping it with Onyx Black Tsukineko - Versafine Ink.
