Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop -- Card #3

It's still Tuesday, which means that it's still my day to share a project created for Topflight Stamps and for the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! Topflight Stamps is a sponsor and is offering a $25 gift card to one lucky person. All winners will be announced on the Coffee Lover's Blog. Pretty nifty, eh?

As stated, I had started a second card, but ran out of time to get it posted at midnight. Alas. So, here it is! Two cards in one day! Don't get spoiled!

BTW, if you'd like to get 12% off your order at Topflight Stamps use THIS LINK or the Coupon Code: KATHIREREK855!

Here's the card which features the "Safety First" Clear Stamp Set #254 by AALL and Create.

Basically, the safety warning sentiment included in the "Safety First" best reminded me that I had the Caution Washi tape in my stash and also had the Redemption Stencil which had words like Dark, Danger, Poison, Toxic, etc, all of which describe my usual morning mood. Hence this card.

  1. Cut a sheet of 12x12 Kraft cardstock in half. Reserve one 6x12 piece.

  3. Take the other piece of Kraft cardstock and place it onto the STAY-tion.
  4. Secure the 7x7 Redemption stencil over the Kraft cardstock with magnets.
  5. Sponge yellow ink over the stencil onto the Kraft cardstock.
  6. Remove the stencil and place the Time Tunnel stencil over the word-stenciled cardstock. Secure with magnets.
  7. Sponge Ochre ink, which is a paler yellow) over the Time Tunnel stencil.
  8. Remove the stencil, trim the stenciled panel to 5.75" square. Edge with yellow ink.
  9. Add the Caution Washi tape to the panel and secure on the reverse.
  10. Adhere the stenciled Washi embellished cardstock panel to the card.
  11. Using the Coffee Cup Die set, cut chipboard, white metallic cardstock, textured Kraft cardstock.
  12. Paint the chipboard Coffee cup with Fresco Finish Acrylic paints. Heat set.
  13. Use magnets to secure the chipboard coffee cup to the STAY-tion. Position the Steampunk Man  stencil so the man is trimmed off and the clock shows. 
  14. Sponge Yellow Prism ink over the stencil onto the painted chipboard coffee cup.
  15. Lift the coffee cup from the STAY-tion and sprinkle clear embossing powder onto the cup. Dump off the excess embossing powder, and heat set. Yep! Prism ink stays wet and tacky enough to use with embossing powder. Sweet!
