Hey Journey Friends! Today I'm sharing a non-traditional "Fall" card and gift set that I created for the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop AND the canyoucaseit.com challenge #139 (Rainbow colors). This'll be a little treat for someone special who's hopping along with all of us!
I decided to take the "Fall" theme out of the box and interpret it a different way...as in FALLING FOR COFFEE! Take a look at my twist on this theme.
I started out by dabbing a rainbow of FSJ reinker colors onto some Acetate. After I had them inked up, I laid another piece of acetate over the ink and rubbed it together. This blended the colors and prepared an inky surface for my stamp. I placed the stamp into the ink and twisted it a bit to let the colors settle in then lifted and applied it to my Whip Cream cardstock. I then applied some Journey Glaze to random dots and sprinkled some Sparkle Dust on them.
Next, I stamped the sentiment (from a fun Richard-ism wood set that I received as a treat for attending Convention last summer. I also stamped some of the coffee cups using Black Licorice ink and painting some reinker onto them for color.
I just love how the reinker can be used as a coloring medium and since a little goes a long way, my reinkers seem to last FOREVER! After that, I stamped the cups in a "falling" pattern on the background paper and assembled the card. I just love tying my ribbon that way! Black Twine and Candy Apple Satin Ribbon do the trick!
After assembling the card, I also created this little treat bag. Inside, there is some secret coffee loving stuff! TOP SECRET! I elected to add some fun trim, a chunky wooden clip and tied a string onto the clip to attach it to the festive striped bag. A perfect and quick little coordinating bag with a little WOW factor!
