Simon Says Stamp | Make Me Tea…

Do you remember the “How To Make Me Happy” sentiment from one of Simon Says Stamp stamp sets? I love that it said “Buy me coffee, make me coffee, be coffee, coffee” – I used it for a funny crazy dog card I shared last Summer.

While I love coffee, I also love to drink tea and I actually drink way more tea than coffee. So when Simon’s Coffee & Tea stamp set came out I had an idea to create a similar card, but replace the word Coffee with Tea! Simple washi tape stamp masking did the trick and I made this card!

CARD DETAILS

I started working on this card by stamping coffee cup from the Coffee and Tea stamp set in Versafine Onyx Black ink onto Arches Hot Pressed watercolor paper. Next, I took the “How to make me happy” sentiment from the Choose Happy stamp set and masked off the word “coffee” using bits of washi tape. I inked my stamp up using same black ink and stamped this message under the coffee cup. This gave me a placeholder to add any noun I liked to customise this card.

I went with a simple “tea” from the Coffee & Tea stamp set and also stamped it in black. You can also stamp other words, like crafting supplies or stamps lol or maybe wine or something else like a tropical vacation? The options are really limitless here.

For my coloring I used watercolors. I picked Finetec Mica Watercolors for the coffee cup and colored it gold. The rest was colored using my Daniel Smith watercolors. I also created a diagonal striped paper to match my teal coloring on the card, trimmed it into a narrow strip and adhered onto my card base along with a strip of gold glitter tape.

Lastly, I added small clear droplets from Pretty Pink Posh.

Tell me, what do you prefer – coffee or tea? Or neither?

    1. I finally gave up coffee and just drink herbal tea now. I do know people who are die-hard coffee drinkers though!! Love this card and went back and checked the crazy dog card you made too. What fun. Missed this stamp set. Will add it to my wish list! Thanks, Yana!

    1. How lovely! Beautiful colour wash background and love how you incorporated a matching stipe at the side!

    1. The card is just wow! And the way you altered the sentiment is another wow. So creative!
