What's Brewin'? With Tim Holtz and Seth Apter's Baked Texture


Hello again!  That was quick! While I had my crafty goodies out, I put them to use on a second coffee lover's card this morning, because my coffee was kickin' into high gear!

It's so fun to pair up the old stuff with my newer and most loved Tim Holtz products. As on my card here, I used my new Stacked Archway dies. These are just so versatile, and I will be getting lots of use out of them!

I don't have much in the way of coffee stash, so I used the same Stampin' Up set used on my previous card. This time I inked the steam right onto my arch panel, masked it, and stamped the dots from the Dots and Floral set by Tim Holtz. I inked the stamp with Peacock Feathers then blended the entire panel with Antique Linen Distress ink after removing the mask. I replaced the mask, gave the panel a splatter of water and blotted with a paper towel. After adhering this to a second archway cut from  breakfast bar waste packaging, I edged in Frayed Burlap.


I heat embossed the outer Archway in clear after inking the steam image in Black Soot ink.  I added more Antique Linen and Frayed Burlap ink. The blue floral stamped background layer is a second generation stamping from the Dots and Floral set.


The coffee cup was stamped in Black Soot and edged in Ground Espresso (of course!). My Paper Doll gent gets a hot seat, but not before giving him some texture with Ranger Vintage Collage Medium and Vintage Beeswax Baked Texture. I borrowed this idea off  a favorite designer here in blogland--I just can't remember who it was as the moment, so please accept my apologies and gratitude for the inspiration.


My sentiment is inside for a change, using another of the Archway die cuts and another little guy from my Paper Doll pack.



That's all for me today! Wow! Several posts in one day after my blog sits quiet for so long except for my rusty Trinket Tin, which coincidentally also uses the Stacked Archway die cuts. I'll be back again later this evening with my scheduled post for A Vintage Journey and then next Wednesday for my Design Team project for Frilly and Funkie.  I should be back to a regular schedule of crafting within a couple of weeks.  I appreciate your coming back today and leaving your inspiring comments!

Hugs and Blessings!

  16. This is such a fantastic card! I love the combo of coffee and masculine and you really did it justice here! I really like the subtle dot background and how it pairs with those fabulous swirls coming out of the mug. The whole thing came together beautifully and I'm so glad you shared your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

  17. What a cool card, Sara Emily, and I'm so glad you finally played along with the coffee blog hop! Love those archway dies and how you've used them. I love your paper doll sitting on that coffee cup - so clever and what a great seat warmer (LOL!). Love the textured finish for that guy, too. I'm in love with the steam or swirls - please tell what stamp that is! Hugs!!

    1. Hi Marty! You made me giggle over the seat warmer! The steam stamp is an old Stampin' Up image I got (where else) from a yard sale up the street about 5 years ago. I did some research and found out it is from 'Like It a Latte". The steam, the cup and the sentiment on my previous card all came from this set. :)
