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.
