You Mocha Me Crazy

Simon Says Stamp has two challenges each week.  This week on the Monday Challenge, the challenge was to make a card with a coffee or tea theme.  This was a category where I actually had a choice of what  stamp set and dies to use, as I have several with a coffee theme.  Because I had just received the Tim Holtz Scribbles and Splat die from Simon Says Stamp and there was no more room in my “new stuff” drawer it was the obvious choice for this project.  I am proud of myself because I also used some cardstock from my stash that came from Scrapbook Sally.  Now that is stashbusting at its’ finest because that store closed many many years ago.



Supplies:  Tim Holtz Scribbles and Splats die, Simon Says Stamp What’s Brewing stamp set, Papertrey Ink Friendship Jar accessories Stamp Set, Recollections Snow embossing powder, recollections card base, Tombow adhesive runner, Mr Huey Calico stain and Scor tape.


And in other news…………….Bunny has a boyfriend………………….and that means trouble.  She brought him around to meet me………………….I was not impressed!  Today, I went out to the resting spot, to point out that while she was “fooling around with boys” one of my pansies had managed to produce a flower that she had missed.  Well, the joke was on me, as out of the corner of my eye I noticed there was only a stem where my pansy flower used to be.  Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too!

  1. Wow! Clean and simple and stunning! Great Card. So that spatter is actually a die and you pieced all those tiny spatters individually? Thanks for the inspiration!


    • The main two spatters are a die. I simply placed brown cardstock behind the cream cardstock to make them appear as dark brown spatters. Then I added some Mr Huey Calico coloured spray to add some more spatters on top. Thank you for your kind comment and encouragement.


  2. This is such a fun card and I love how you’ve used the splats die to create the background, it just works so well! Thank you so much for sharing your project and for playing along with us over on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog… 🙂
