Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Jess Crafts Digitals Coffee Card featuring Coffee Cup Critters

Hello crafty friends! I'm so excited to be a Super Sponsor for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop with my digital stamps. As part of the hop I am offering two $10 prizes, some free digital stamps and a coupon code for all of you. Plus I have a video tutorial to share today. Feel free to check out my shop and use the code COFFEEHOP for 25% off all my stamps. Now on to today's tutorial. Today's card turned into two when I realized I could get a second background cleaning up my stencil. For more on the technique check the video below. 

If you don't have time for the full video feel free to scroll through some more pictures and some quick tips below.

As mentioned in the video I try to keep fellow crafters in mind when designing my stamp so I use thick lines for easier fussy cutting and coloring.

Even though I only intended to make one background with the coffee stencil from Mint Owl Studio when I was about to clean up I thought why not press another piece of paper to the pooled ink and spray on the stencil and see what happens. Well turns out a very fun background happens so I quickly colored up a second critter cup made a second card.
