Mixed Media Coffee Card with Embossing Folder


Happy Sunday!  Today I'm sharing a new mixed media coffee card with you featuring this beautiful stamp from the Coffee Time stamp set by Darkroom Door.  If you missed my first coffee post, click back for a giveaway of this stamp set!  :)


I stamped my image onto paper I previously inked with Distress Inks.  I do this often because I love that you can select special parts of the inky paper which compliment your stamped image, like these spotches.  I cut a mixed media thinlet background die by Tim Holtz from inky paper and layered onto a panel that  I had inked and embossed with an embossing folder.  I sanded it lightly, which didn't work as well as sanding my Distress Oxide backgrounds on a previous card, but the texture is beautiful even without the highlights.


I finished up with a die cut doily, cut from a used coffee filter, a Tim Holtz Chit Chat chipboard sentiment, a purchased flower and loopy bow.  I hope this card inspires you today!
