COFFEEEEE!

I love the Perfect Blend stamp set!

Here's my version of the coffee card (below). I've been looking everywhere for a coffee ring stamp. I tested out several cups in my house, too big. I even bought the Undefined Stamp set, thinking I'd spend an evening happily stamp carving.  Then, eureka! I saw the pocket watch in the Clockworks stamp and Voila! it's a coffee ring. First I thought I would just ink it and mask off the windy thing, then after stamping it I figured out that I could use a marker and ink it where I wanted.  Then I kissed off a second stamp of the ring after the first one to blur it out and make it more real.  Yes, you do have to fussy cut the cup and coffee warmer. The Natural Composition DSP looks just like Starbucks.I put the cup on with dimensionals. I used naturals white for the cup to set it apart from the vanilla background. The vanilla is a little sharper to stamp, not that the splats need to be sharp.
Great card to give your boss on his birthday if he has a good sense of humor.
