Last drop...

Hello!  Thanks so much for stopping by
 
Be sure to stop by Craftin Desert Divas for coffee digi stamps! 
 
Today I would like to share a coffee card I made using a digital image from Craftin Desert Divas.  I wanted to stretch my thoughts and use what I had already.. I'm a good one for always needing the new stuff, but I was looking through my stash of digital stamps and low and behold had a bear from winter.  Cocoa Bear.. so I printed him out and colored away.    I knew I'd have to cover up the snowflake so I took out the Got Coffee set (physical stamps) and a heart punch.  I stamped the heart onto the heart punch in white and then I distressed the heart with Grape distress ink.. I then added some foam dots and over the snowflake it went.
 
 
 
The Fancy Frames die set is a staple in my collection.. I use these dies in many projects.   I also used the Picture Frame die for another layer in the card.  To add my bear I used Stitched Circles and then foam tape to raise the bear a bit. 
 
To finish it off the sentiment (from Got Coffee) I heat embossed in white on the Flag Banner Die set.  I'm in love with this banner set.. A must have in your collection.  I never ever throw packaging.. bows.. etc away.  The purple bow is from the packaging of stamps at Craftin Desert Divas!
 
It is super simple to use digital stamps in your projects.  I have a Brother Laser MFC-9340 printer and print on either Brutus Monroe alabaster paper or Spectrum Noir paper.  I use Sprectrum Noir makers to color.  If you have any issues.. Heat set the ink before coloring.   I use the Brother Scan N Cut to 'fussy cut' all of my images.   You can do a close cut.. or I chose to offset my image a smidge..

    1. That is weird, Lisa. I was going through another hop last night and it was doing the same thing.. taking me through facebook. I should have looked to see if it was a blog from blogger.. I didn't think to look as it happened with a few.. Hmmm thanks for letting me know!

    2. No no... I didnt mean like a glitch... I just meant that at the same time I clicked on the link your card popped up in facebook... I don't remember now, but I was probably commenting on my computer and on facebook with my phone.... just a coincidence... no problem....
