So LOVE this stamp set!
Can't believe it has taken me this long to use the Perfect Blend stamp set as it is one of the first one's I wanted from the new catalog.
I saw how to make "coffee" paper on Sandi MacIvar's blog.
It's super easy - mix up some instant coffee and a little water and paint your paper with a couple of coats - the paper smells like coffee!
The designer series paper is from Venetian Romance. The Tangerine Tango card stock features a new embossing folder coming up in the Holiday Catalog called Pretty Print. I did stamp the background before embossing with a stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and Crumb Cake ink. Also added a little Crisp Cantaloupe Ruffled Stretch Trim to the edge of the dsp. Always fun to get the sewing machine into action on paper!
