Monday's Fun Day - Wake up and smell the coffee!

I have to say I am in LOVE with Unity Stamp Company. I'll be back to posting SU! cards tomorrow, but here's a card I made with a couple of the stamps from Magnificent Moments .


Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, River Rock, Very Vanilla
Ink: River Rock, Chocolate Chip, Handsome Hunter
Stamp: Unity "Magnificent Moment"
Accessories: Photo Corner Punch, Sponge Daubers, Stampin' Dimensionals, Tombow Multi Purpose Adhesive, Dew Droplets (Mens), VersaMarker, Gelly Powder Cuppa Joe, Glimmer Mist (Coffee Shop)

I made my own background:

Then for the coffee cup, I had to make a mask so that I could spray it with glimmer mist.

Here's the glimmer mist... be sure to shake it well so that the shimmer that settles at the bottom of the bottle is gone. Otherwise, your spray will clog.

Be sure to protect your surface well. Glimmer Mist gives a lot of coverage and it does stain. I added several more Post-it® notes all around the matted image to make sure it did not get stained other than on the coffee cup. I sprayed the cup and then patted off the excess with a paper towel. After peeling off Post-it® notes, I heat set it with my heat gun.

I used a VersaMarker to color in where I wanted the scented embossing powder to stick and then used my heat gun to heat it up.

It smells SO good!

Monday's Fun Day Giveaway!

I want to share some of this inspiration so for Monday's Fun Day, I will be stamping off images from Magnificent Moments and sending someone a Cuppa Joe (black coffee scented embossing powder) from gel-à-tins along with a $5 giftcard to Starbucks for a drink on me!


All you have to do is post if you drink coffee or tea and what your favorite flavor/drink is. Do you like Starbucks or go somewhere similar for your drinks? How do you order your drink?

I love Starbucks! My favorite is Vanilla Soy Chai, no water, extra hot.

Mmmm..looks like a great cuppa :)
Hubby loves Starbucks. I don't drink coffee. I love fruity tea though. Like, peach and strawberry. I also love peppermint tea. Yum!

I don't regularly drink coffee but I enjoy a cup now and then. My hubby is the coffee drinker and at home brews Gevalia coffees. I like the nutty flavored ones. If I win I'll try something yummy at Starbucks. Who knows maybe I'll become a coffee drinker.

Cute card! I'd love a cup now! In the morning, I like my coffee straight up...nothing added! But I love lots of flavored coffees and iced coffees. I love Chai too... I often have tea at night and chai is one of my faves, especially with some SF Davinci syrups added yummy!

Love coffee! (usually black at home)
When I go to Caribou, I usually get the caramel high rise.

Thanks for the giveaway!

What a great card and tutorial! I'm a coffee drinker but do love a good tea sometimes too. My favorite coffee is a non-fat, sugar free caramel latte...I know...why bother. But it is good anyway! :o)

I drink coffee, black...
Nothing special... just what is in the pot in the breakroom, or whatever is on sale when I go to the market.

Who makes the scented embossing powder?

Joni M said...

I see it... gel-à-tins! Yum!Wouldn't the peppermint be great for Christmas cards?

Theresa said...

You make these Unity Stamps look very appealing! My favorite drink is chai tea latte. They are the best from Panera. However, my own home-brew is equally as awesome! LOL!

Ashli said...

I don't drink either regularly, but a hot cup of peppermint tea works wonders on a cold, and I LOVE a mocha latte every now and then! (Full fat, full calorie, although temporarily decaf!)

JIB said...

In the words of Captain Picard on Star Trek: Next Generation, Earl Grey Tea, Hot. I love the strawberry tea at Bob Evans, too.

I don't care for Star Bucks coffee. I'm not a huge drinker, but I do like Cafe Mocha Latte from Caribou. But my most favorite is French Vanilla Coffee at Speedway.

I'm a collector of all things tea.

Hope I win!

I don't drink regular coffee, but I enjoy Starbuck Frappichino's. I order hazelnut with an extra shot. I am lucky to live within a mile of 3 different originated here in Washington State & we have a LOT of them here. Super-cute images & I LOVE your card!

I'm more of an herbal tea drinker. That and hot chocolate. It may sound a little odd but I usually have a cup of hot chocolate every day. It really helps keep my chocolate addiction at bay. Thanks for the chance to win some candy.

Good morning, dear! By the time I go to Starbucks I've already have had coffee (with only milk, no sugar) at home - so, I order the Chai Latte which you know I love!

besos, Amy

Cindy Vernon said...

I am a huge STarbucks drinker. I always order a grande non-fat white mocha with whip. Yum!

I like coffee AND tea - for a special treat I like a Dunkin Donuts Iced Caramel Swirl Latte (extra squirt of caramel) and Teavana makes a tea called Tropica at makes me very happy!

Ohhh, cute card! I love coffee and like my sugar free french vanilla! I usually make my own. We have a couple of local coffee stops , but no Starbucks here in my little town!

Sheila D said...

Love the card and tutorial. Love all things coffee. My favorite everyday coffee is Dunkin Donut's hot French Vanilla. On occassion I drink their Vanilla Chai. In the summer they have awesome Coffee Coolattas. Sooo Very fattening but good.

Carolina said...

Cute, cute, cute! I thought I replied but it must have been over at SCS in the disappearing card - LOL! Anywho, great card, you know I love it and the amazing tutorial, another winner. Don't need to enter me into the drawing, but just had to participate since it's about one of my favorite subjects, ultimate drink for me is a Triple shot Extra Dry Non Fat Cappuccino. Try saying that three times - LOL!

That card is AWESOME! Thanks so much for the pics on how you made it! That glimmer mist really adds sumthin'. Love it! And you used the coffee EP!! Awww, I wish I could smell this card!
Anyway, I drink ALL coffee but straight up espresso. Mr. Coffee has issued a restraining order against me. I handle him at least 3x a day. ;) And I love my coffee with yummy flavors: syrup or yummy creamers. I do love chai too. In the summer iced chai with soy. MMmm!

This card is so cute! I love Starbucks should have bought stock a long time ago with how often I and my kids go. My standard is simple: Grande, non-fat, 1 splenda latte. But if I want a treat I go for a grande caremel macchiatto
