Hello Blogging Friends!!

Glad you stopped by today!  Today is the start of another month long challenge on the Joy Clair Blog ~ Joy Clair November Challenge!!

For the November Challenge the theme is "Stencil It" and here is the Inspiration Photo to help you get started!

Here is my card:


Tea Dye distress ink
Black ink
Brown ink
Kraft card stock
Watercolor paper
Patterned paper
Scalloped die
Pop dots

For this A2 card I started with Kraft card stock for the base of the card.  I took some white paper and the Tim Holtz Splatter stencil and some Tea Dye distress ink and stenciled the coffee rings and coffee splatter on the paper, I inked the edges with brown ink and then added that to the card.  I took the Joy Clair Coffee Lovers stamp set, some black ink and some patterned paper and stamped the coffee cup onto the paper and then fussy cut it out.  I stamped the lid and the coffee band with black ink onto some extra Kraft paper and then fussy cut them out and added them to the coffee cup and I glued the coffee cup onto the card.  I took the Joy Clair Coffee Quotes stamp set, some white paper, some black ink and I stamped the sentiment onto the paper, cut it out with the scalloped die, inked the edges with Tea Dye distress ink and put some pop dots on the back and attached it to the card. I chose the sentiment "Coffee because adulting is hard" went along with the spilled coffee on the background!
