how have you bean?

Hello everyone!!  Stopping in with a card for the spring Coffee Lover's blog hop that starts today.  I combined the Hero Arts Coffee Cup Tags set with the A Jillian Vance Design But First Coffee stamp set to create my card.  I stamped the floral to go cup image in watermark ink on white cardstock, applied white embossing powder and then heat set.  The Coffee Cup Tags set is actually a holiday one, but I thought the flowers could be made to look more spring like by using bright colors like orange and pink. I used distress ink markers to color the images and then wiped off the excess ink with a paper towel.  Some ink did remain, but I don't think it takes away from the over all look.  I die cut a piece of white cardstock with an AJVD Stitched Dot Rectangle die and then stamped the coffee ring image using Vintage Sepia ink.  After stamping the lid in gray ink I die cut the cup and lid with the matching dies and adhered them to the panel.  The sentiment was stamped in watermark ink and embossed with black embossing powder on a strip of vellum.  Trimmed down the strip and adhered it to the cup.  I will also add this to the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge to use more than one die or punch.
Enjoy the blog hop!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  white and SSS fog; Stamps:  A Jillian Vance Design and Hero Arts; Dies:  A Jillian Vance Design and Hero Arts; Inks:  VersaMark, VersaFine and Ranger Distress ink markers; Embossing powder:  Filigree white and black
