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!
