Blackberry Indigo Watercolor - Perfect Blend

What is your favorite stamp set in the current Stampin' Up! catalog? I think I've mentioned it before, but Perfect Blend is mine! This sweet little set is inexpensive, has this sketchy coffee cup image along with two great sentiment stamps and is so fun to paper piece and color.

For this card using Perfect Blend stamp set, I stamped and Heat Embossed the cups on Watercolor Paper and then flooded them with watercolor in Blackberry Bliss and Island Indigo. I used the Aquapainter with a lot of water and wet paper, lifting color from ink pressed onto a stamp case for a pallet. Then I stamped and Heat Embossed the lids onto Naturals Ivory cardstock, cut everything out and layered the pieces onto a Big Shot Embossed piece of Blushing Bride cardstock. Of course, the 'coffee & friends' sentiment was the perfect one for this card and I tied it onto the Chevron Ribbon with a piece of Early Espresso Baker's Twine.

This card was one of my swaps for a Favorite Stamp Set swap at a recent Excite & Unite Event Stampin' Up! event in Littleton recently. What a great group of ladies and a fun day talking stamps, Stampin' Up! and of course - swaps!
