Words cannot Espresso…

This is my 4th coffee themed card and for someone like me who doesn’t drink coffee, its alot of cards for me to make, but I know the majority of my friends depend enjoy their coffee so I won’t have any problems giving them away I think. It was also a challenge for me to see how many different types of cards I could make with the same coffee theme stamps from Concorde & 9th and My Favorite Things, as those are the only 2 coffee theme stamps I have!

I made a very simple one layer card but added some dimension by adding Nuvo drops on the rim of my cup, the milk heart and the spoon. I saw this being done by a few card makers so I thought I’d try it too and it slides on so easily! The little leaves have sparkles on them as I coloured them with Spectrum Noir Glitter markers. The coffee and sentiment was stamped with Altenew’s Dark Chocolate ink and I went over the coffee in the cup with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers as I can never get a smooth rich coverage with whole stamps.

I’m not a coffee drinker, or hot chocolate as I’m lactose intolerant too.. but I feel like one now as that looks delicious doesn’t it? Yum!

In case you haven’t seem my previous posts, here are the other 2 cards I made with this same stamp set in the same day. I have so many more ideas so I don’t think it will be the last time I use them!


Well thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!

  3. For a non-coffee drinker you sure managed to flavor your cards in the right way. Wow I love the sentiment and your CAS one layer approach. I bet the rim of the cup is simply beautiful too. Thanks so much for sharing with us at the ANYTHING GOES Watercooler Wednesday challenge this week.


  4. Well Gwendolyn I forgive you for not being a coffee drinker. Anyone who can make such a great looking cup of crafted coffee can’t be all bad, after all. Great use of colours. You’ve kept this clean and simple but made it fun as well. Love the other two cards as well. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.
