CAS82 Delicious

For a long, wordy essay on stamp buying, please scroll down. This is today's second post.

CAS82 this week is inspired by the word Delicious!

Now that's a challenge I can sink my teeth into.

I hear you groaning. Stop that.

Anyway, I went to my stamp drawer labeled Kitchen/Home and saw my giant coffee cup stamp from Hero Arts. Delicious, indeed.

How-To Tips: Originally, I had masked the bottom of the cup and stamped the A Muse large oval to create a table for my cup. This turned out to be a huge mistake. The cup is too low on the card, and the "table" looked squashed. Urg. As I stared at it, it occurred to me that if I cut off the bottom, while cutting around the cup, I could layer a kraft paper strip in place of a table. YES! What a great save.

stamps: Hero Arts
ink: Palette Dark Chocolate
paper: kraft, white
accessories: I don't see any.
