I used the Hero Arts BasicGrey Two Way Arrows stencil again, but this time on Kraft Cardstock. I used StazOn Spiced Chai Ink direct to paper over the textured embossing (which seemed perfect, since Spiced Chai is my go-to choice of hot drink).
I used three different images from the Hero Arts Caffeine Fix Digital Stamp set to create my image.
I combined the coffee cup (or tea cup in my case) with the steam and the sentiment using my word processing software, which allows me to re-size, flip (I wanted my mug handle on the right) and position the images, so they are perfect for my card design, and then printed it on Natural White Cardstock.
The layout is this week’s Sweet Sunday Sketch (flipped on its side to work with my vertical image).
Embossing with stencils is such a fun and easy way to add texture to your design.
