Distressed Plaid Background for a Fall Coffee Card


Happy fall y'all!  And happy Coffee Lovers Blog Hop to you!  I always get so excited when another coffee themed card making celebration comes around.  Join me daily through next Friday for coffee themed projects and inspiration.  To kick the week off I'm starting with my favorite card of this round made with this amazing image by STAMPlorations.  They have so generously shared this freebie printable coffee image, so if you don't have any coffee stamps visit THIS page to download.  As a bonus, you can enter your project into their never ending challenge and possibly win some STAMPlorations stamps.  I have used this image many times throughout these hops.  Click on my label Coffee Lovers Hop to see all of my coffee themed cards.


I started out by creating an inky background with Distress Inks.  I flicked some water to further grunge up my panel.  Then I stamped a Wendy Vecchi plaid stamp diagonally randomly over it to create what is to me the essence of fall - earth tones and plaid!  :)  I layered with a burlap doily and the images, also colored with Distress.


The flower is handmade using the Tattered Florals die and kraft paper.  The beautiful coffee die is by Verve stamps and the other text is computer generated.  Thanks again for your visit!  Happy Coffee Loving Cardmaking & hopping.  :)
