Love you a latte!

These On the Go packs of instant coffee were being given out for free at my work the other day. The first thing I thought of was the Scratch & Sniff technique! So, of course I grabbed one! Wonder if they have any more?! I used my Pun Fun stamp set for this cute card. I stamped my image on a 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" piece of Whisper White card stock using my classic ink. I then used my Versamarker to fill in the cup where the coffee would go. It did smear my ink - but that was OK because it made my coffee black. I then sprinkled my mixture of coffee crystals and clear embossing powder over the wet Versamarker, and gave it a quick blast of heat with my heat gun. To color the cup, I used my Rich Regal Watercolor Crayons.

The paper is Rose Red Designer Series paper. Added a touch of Whisper White ribbon to finish the card off. The base of the card is Whisper White card stock - cut to 3" x 6" - to give me a cute gift note sized card. Perfect to add to a Mother's Day gift bag.

And yes, it does really smell like coffee!

What a cute idea! I love those "diamond shaped" patterns, and the "stratch in sniff" is cool too. You have a lot of great ideas here. I'm definitely subscribing to your feed. I also love your blog's title.
