Magic of the season, but not before coffee ~ Rubbernecker Stamps


Hey All! The Coffee Lovers Blog hop is going on right now. I had to make a little something to show off the super cute Ethel with Coffee from Rubbernecker Stamps. I just love her!

I did use a couple well more than a couple more like a few of the coffee sets from Rubbernecker Stamps (sorry they are out of the others) just because I love the polka dot coffee cup. I actually have one just like it only it is grey with white polka dots.

I actually went ahead and made a whole sheet of the little background paper that I made for the coffee cups and the coffee beans. I got the word coffee and the coffee cup from the Coffee Set. I got the coffee bean from the Coffee Blanket set. I am really sorry but those are the ones that they will be out of until next Expo season in February/March of 2019 (wow!!! its already nearing 2019!)

I did do a little extra when I made the little tag to go on the stamp, as I wanted to use Ethel. I went ahead and hand wrote " But not before my coffee" I really think this is what I am going to be like when I am older haha! I will have my curlers in my hair and my robe on haha!

I really like the "Magic of the season" sentiment as well it was just to perfect not to pair these two up.

I actually wrote the "But not before my coffee" before I stamped the sentiment from Rubbernecker Stamps on the paper. After I did all of that I went ahead and cut it out using the Nested Banner w/stitch die cuts from Rubbernecker Stamps.

After I also colored the coffee cups and made the background paper, I used the walnut stain from Ranger. I used the blending tools that they have to do the sponging on the paper.

The background paper for the first layer of patterned paper I also made. I used the Splatter Stains stamp set from Rubbernecker Stamps as well to make that. I just changed the directions in which I was stamping in order to make it. I made a whole sheet of it, then cut it down to size.

I had originally just colored Ethel's robe red with a green color and a green collar. Then someone that shall remain nameless.. he knows who he is .... said that the robe looked plain.... ugh some people. So I went ahead and used YG91 and 93 to put some lines on it to make it look like a Christmas plaid instead. I do not draw very straight but for what I was doing, I suppose it worked.

The Copic markers I used are:

  • Skin: E000, 00, 04, 11, 21, R20

  • Hair: E50, 51, 53

  • Robe and background coffee cups: R17, 24, 27, 29, 46, 59, W4, YG91, 93, 95, 97, 99

  • Coffee beans: E23, 25, 27

  • Other: White Gel Pen, Black .05 Copic Multi Liner
