Simple but sweet coffee plaque

I know March is a notoriously long month, but this one seems to be moving through at a good pace for me.  I have a cute and fast project to share with you...




And now, the instructions...




I had a piece of scrap wood (cause don't we all just have scraps of wood handy?), that I painted with white acrylic paint.  I left the very middle unpainted because I knew I was covering it.

I added my paper after cutting it with deckle edge scissors.  I used Hard Coat Mod Podge and rolled over the top with my brayer to eliminate bubbles and wrinkles.




For my cups of coffee, I used three clear stamps, and these three coordinating papers.  I used StazOn ink in black and cut them out.  To give them that three dimensional appearance, I glued them on with adhesive foam squares. 

I finished the plaque with four tiny white buttons in the corners.  The papers were in the Stella and Rose My Mind's Eye collection.  I love them so, I don't know whether to make a bunch of things with them...or hoard them!  Weird, right?

  1. Oooh love this. Those stamps are great!

    I think I have a thing about "C" foods...chocolate..check, cheese...check, coffee...check. While I decided not to do the Spring stashbust ( ssshhhh don't tell Mr. You Know Who) I have decided that if I come to choice of use it or hoard it, I'm using it.

  9. I also LOVE my coffee! And I love all my coffee-theme embellishments and paper. I even have little coffee bean buttons. I think I have those same coffee cup stamps. However, yours look larger. What is the finished size of your wood? I've just signed on as your 409th follower:)
