National Cappuccino Day

I found another reason to make a coffee card!
And again used one of the coffee images by 
In Monika Reeck's Etsy shop you find some wonderful
coffee images for only a few dollars. The images are drawn
by her Indonisian friend HN and he can use some support.
 Please take a look and see if you can
support himby buying a digital stamp.
Have you never used digital stamps?
Well HERE you find some more explanation what to
do with these digital images.

Here is my card and doesn't it look like a cup of Cappuccino?
I used the image of the Couple Cup of Coffee
You find the image HERE.

To give the card the cappucciono look I used the 
shaving cream technique You need the cheapest
can of shaving cream and some drops of
reinkers. I used the photo, the brilliance
coffee been and a copper perfect pearl spray.
First add the shaving cream in a bowl, then add the ink.

Then stir it lightly. Doesn't it look deliciously?!

Take your paper and push it in the shaving  cream.
Make sure the paper has contact all over. When you
take it out, you need a  (old) credit card or you
can also use a knife to take of the excess shaving cream.
Now your paper is ready to use for the card.
 the colored image that I used for a focal point.
I colered them with distress markers. .he background banner is embossed 
with a wavy embossing folder and added some ink on top.

    I made the female cup even more female 
with the flower stamp punched out (by SU!)
 and decorated with a little gemstone
The sentiment stamp are from Create a Smile.
This set just arrived from the US. It was my prize from
the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop in the fall.
I am gearing up on new stamps for the Winter
Blog hop they will have in December.

For more inspiration with this image visit
my friend Monika's Blog
or my other friend 

When you make thes shaving cream backgrounds
you have quite a lot of panels to use for cards.
So here is one more that I made with stams I received 
as a rak from Amy Tsuruta. Thank you so much.

The stamps are by Unity Stamp Company.

On the shaving cream panel I used a stencil and coffee ring 
stamp for decoration. They are both from Club Scrap.

I colored the image with distress markers and then added
y accent on the sun and a little gold glitter glue on the rest
of the cup.

Here you see the decorated background panel.

And the sentiment inside!

Hope you all enjoy your coffee today.
Thanks for looking and your comments.
