Craftin it old school

Hi everyone!  I'm back to share another Jess Crafts Digital project with you.  The release of this stamp is perfect timing if you are planning on participating in the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog hop!

I titled my project "old school" because I went back to some oldie but goodie techniques.  You know what I'm talking about.  The hobby of stamping has come a really long way but many of the techniques are just tried and true!  I really wanted the digital stamp to take front and center on my card so I kept it simple.  I grabbed a couple different coffee stamps and random stamped on the blue cardstock with blue and brown inks.  I did go over the beans with my Wink of Stella marker for some shimmer.  With the same blue ink I stamped the stripes.  I then ran it through with a coffee bean embossing folder.  I think I bought this folder after the last Coffee Lovers blog hop because I saw so many people using it!  I attached that strip to a piece of brown cardstock.  I then mounted those two pieces onto a white card base.

I colored this adorable Caffeinated Raccoon with Copic markers in tones similiar to the cardstock and inks I had already used.  I mounted it on a tan piece of cardstock, added some foam tape to the back and just eyeballed the center of the card.  Voila!  This cutie is available right now in Jess's Etsy store: Caffeinated Raccoon.

See you real soon!
