1 stamp 3 ways - coffee magic

i'm not the only one with barely used (or unopened even, lol) stamps in my collection right? well i have the cutest little background stamp from pinkfresh, this one...
i've only used it once so i thought i would challenge myself to take it out and use it for this month's 1 stamp 3 ways. 1 stamp 3 ways is just a silly challenge i made for myself because i was the kind of kid who asked for extra homework. i like assignments, even self-created ones, ha-ha!

inspired by my love affair with starbucks advertising (i don't even drink coffee) and my summer color palette, i create this card:

i created a background by masking stripes and applying distress ink with a blending tool.


i stamped and embossed the frappuccino from the essentials by ellen oh frappe set in white. then i colored it exactly the same as the one from this card with clean color markers.

inspired by this starbucks ad...
...to include doodles in white, i masked a triangle area on a piece of vellum using painter's tape. i stamped my pinkfresh doodle background and embossed it in white. then i trimmed the excess away leaving only the doodled triangle. 
my sentiment is my often used combo of stamp and die. and i think this might be the perfect card to send along with the starbucks gc for a friend who could use a little extra pick-me-up.
have a great tuesday!

xo,
carly
