"Bean" Thinking of You
Gotta say I'm kinda proud of this one. One of the things I love about the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is that it gets me trying to use my actual physical stamps. Here's one with ALL real stamping. YAY, me! (And thank god for the Misti)
I had this in my mind because of my new bold alphabet die set from Super Sponsor Altenew and the fact that it's getting close to Father's Day. Although my Daddy's been gone 13 years now, rarely a day goes by without me thinking of him and he sure loved his coffee. So I kept this masculine, stamping in brown Memento and using kraft grid paper from a Tim Holtz stack that referenced my daddy's mechanical engineering profession. No computers when he was working. Drafting was done by hand on.
I taped the letters together to get an idea of where I wanted to stamp and used the Coffee Beans from the Tim Holtz Fresh Brewed stamps from Stampers Anonymous. The additional beans are from Super Sponsor Verve's Coffee set (OOOH! I even MASKED some!) and the sentiment is from Verve's Rise Above set. After stamping, I cut the letters and popped them up and there ya go.
I'm also entering this in the DL.Art May Linky Challenge, Lil Patch of Crafty Friends #82 AG, Simon Says Monday Masculine Challenge, Simon Says Wednesday Use More than One Stamp, the Outlawz Monday Greetings AG, and Dream Valley Challenges #180 for a Man or Boy.
