Gracie is releasing a new Coffee & Flowers digital stamp and you can grab this beautiful set at Graciellie Design Etsy Store today! And I am using this stamp set on my CAS Mixed Media card for this Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

I printed the flower cup image and sentiments on a heavyweight cardstock with my inkjet printer. I dried the ink with craft heater. Then I colored the image with the Leisure Arts Watercolored Pencils and waterbrush.

After that, I added some black splatters on the panel with watercolor paint and fan brush.

On the cup, After I colored it with watercolor penciled and waterbrush, I added some white gesso with my finger. I kindda painting it with my finger to give it some texture and shadow.

I cut the finished panel with Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies – CUTplorations. Then I added it on a A2 White Card with dries clear adhesive glue.

For the sentiment, I die cut it with one of the Tim Holts Tags Die Set. I added a piece of fun foam just in the middle of the tag, and then added it on the card with craft glue on the fun foam, and at both ends of the tag.

I embellished this card by I wrapped it with natural burlap twine on top of the card. And it is done. I love how this simple and quick card turned out to be, and I hope you do, too.
