Coffee Causes my Soul to Dance


I know a few people who are coffee lovers and drinking it causes their soul to dance.  I'm one of them.  For others, it's the smell of fresh brewed coffee, even when they do not like to drink coffee.  

Instructions for creating my background is below.

Instructions for Making my Card

Creating My Background:

  1. Cut white cardstock to 4" x 5 1/4" and rub your embossing buddy all over the cardstock.
  2. Using VersaMark, stamp Whimsical Coffee Background out and cover with clear embossing powder.
  3. Using Distress Oxides in colours picked raspberry and fossilized amber, I used my Ink Blending Brushes to blend the colour onto my cardstock.
  4. Spritz background with Shimmering Iridescent Bliss Topping and wipe colour away with a baby wipe.
  5. Once fully dried, iron the decorated front by placing a copy paper on the bottom of your image, and one over top.  Use dry setting.  You will see the embossing powder stick to the top sheet, and that's a good thing.
  6. Next, colour block using my video for directions.
  7. Finally, add Soul to Dance to the card front.

 In the following weeks you will see this same background using different colours of Distress Oxides.
