Technique video tutorial: Coffee & Friends are the perfect blend

Hello Crafty Friends!

It was inky fun in my craft room last weekend using two newly released stamp sets from Quietfire Design: But First, Coffee and Tea & Thee.   The stamp sets are perfect for the tea or coffee lovers on your gift list.

I definitely wanted to share the techniques used to create the background as it is much easier to follow the technique via video.  (Here is the link to the YouTube video.)  You will want to have two pieces of watercolor paper handy as you will have ink left on your craft mat.  That's right, two cool backgrounds created at once.  :)

A closeup of the quote and the inky background.  After the background was adhered to the card front I added some sparkle with Nuvo Crystal Drops.

The large torn upper left corner is actually a pocket for a gift card.  (Make sure you leave a large enough area free of adhesive or glue if you decide to create a gift card packet.)
Such awesome tea and coffee stamp sets!  I like that each set has many stamps to play with: the tea set has 7 stamps and the coffee set has 8 stamps.  Yay!  Imagine all of the different projects you can create!

Thank you for stopping by.  I do hope you enjoyed the project and the technique video.
Have a happy, crafty day!
Big Hugs,
Kathy Jo
