3 Cards Using BoBunny Cup of Joe Stamps
Happy Craftersday, everyone. Today I am excited to be using the Cup of Joe stamp set from BoBunny. When I saw this in Tuesday Morning I knew it was an instant buy. This set has 5 stamps to it all together but that small number isn’t going to stop us, my crafty friends. No, No! I am going to make 3 cards using this set and I am going to be using the same 12 inch by 12 inch paper on all of them. Check out the video below:

I Heart Coffee
For my first card I went with the On-the-run coffee cup image and the ‘coffee’ sentiment. I knew I wanted to do alcohol marker coloring with my Artist’s Loft markers so I made sure to stamp my cup with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. This ink is formulated not to run when used with alcohols markers. The sentiment is in Memento Rich Cocoa Ink which I felt like went with the over all coffee theme.
The strip of paper on the side is from the 12 inch Sunday Morning Paper pad. I cut it down and used some direct to paper inking. You don’t have to do this part but it adds extra visual interest to the card if you do. I never would have thought about using that inking technique on my own. I learned about it while taking the Irresistible Inking Techniques class by Altenew. The class was fun and filled with different ways to use our ink pads that we may mat have thought of before. There was even a section on using ink brayers! I never knew I wanted a brayer until then, lol.
Fueled by Ramen, er.. Coffee
I had a lot of fun with this next card. One of the BoBunny sentiments is “Fueled By Coffee”. One of my favorite bands is Fall Out Boy and their record label is Fueled by Ramen. I listened to “From Under the Cork Tree” the whole rest of the day.
Getting to the card, I stamped my image on some watercolor paper and let it dry a few minutes. Next I used my Tombow Dual Brush Galaxy Palette and Pastel Palette to lay color where my cup was going to be the darkest and then drew that color out using my fine watercolor bush by Jane Davenport. The base color that I used was 452 Process Blue then I went over it with 296 Green. Make sure you don’t color all over the middle so that the cup will look like it has a shine.
On the card I used gold washi and some clear sticky back gems to decorate. I also used a 1-1/2 inch scallop punch by recollections to make the little doily my cup is sitting on. To make the sentiment I stamped the image with Versamark and brushed it with gold Perfect Pearl.
Coffee Mug and Cup
Just on case you haven’t had enough, here is the last card using both cup images. I did some heat embossed resist techniques so that I could watercolor inside the lines without having to worry about messing my card up.
This card is pretty self explanatory. Just heat emboss the cups and sentiment and watercolor using different concentrations of Vintage Photo Distress Ink. My lighter browns were done with a drop or two of water on an acrylic block with the Vintage Photo while the dark brown was Vintage Photo at 100% strength. That’s it. Thank you for following along. Everything I used I add to my list below. Have a great day!
