Press On Coffee & Courage Card - The Spot Challenge #122


Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you my card for this week's challenge over at the Spot Challenge Blog.  This week we have a themed challenge for you and it's one of my favorites.  It is Coffee, Cocktails, and Chocolate.  You can create a project with all of these or just one.  I picked the Press On Stamp Set to create my card for you today.  It's new in the August-December Mini Catalog that just went live today.  Here's a look at my card.  

Tips & Tricks:

To start my card I cut a piece of the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper to 4" x 5 1/4" and layered it onto a piece of Mint Macaron Cardstock.  I then layered that onto my Early Espresso card base that was cut at 4 1/4" x 11" scored at 5 1/2".  Next I stamped the coffee cup from the Press On Stamp Set (which by the way is the featured stamp set in my Monthly Online Card Club this month) in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on to a piece of Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock.  


Once I had the coffee cup stamped out I colored it with Crumb Cake, Cajun Craze, and Mint Macaron Stampin' Blends.  I then die cut it with the second largest Circle from the Layering Circle Dies.  I attached it to a scalloped circle from the same die set.  I tied some Early Espresso Faux Suede Ribbon around my card base and layered my circle on top with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I then stamped Press On in Early Espresso Ink onto a piece of Mint Macaron Cardstock and added it to the front of my card.  


To add a little bling to my card I added a few of the sequins from the Sequins for Everything Mix.  I added each one with my Take Your Pick Tool and a little Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  My color combination for this week's card was Early Espresso, Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, Mint Macaron, and Very Vanilla.  


To finish off my card I added a piece of Thick Very Vanilla to the inside of the card and stamped my inside sentiment in Early Espresso Ink.  I also added a small strip of the same piece of Gilded Autumn Spec. Designer Series Paper.  I also added this to the outside of the envelope flap as well to tie everything in.
