Bugaboo Stamps: Coffee Break | Espresso Yourself

Before I even get started I have to give a shout-out to an incredibly clever and oh-so-cool fellow Austinite - Lisa Spangler. I had lunch with her (and Libby, Lydia, Karen, Jimmie Sue, and Lori) last Friday at La Madeleine and she was enough of a darling not to punch me when I said that I was going to shamelessly CASE a card that she made for one of the Austin shoebox swaps for my tutorial today. Thank you Lisa. . .;)

Step 1: Gather your supplies - printed image, acrylic block, and ink (I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Spun Sugar because that's what Lisa used, and the way I see it, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. . .;)

Step 2: Promise your husband favors (sexual or otherwise) in exhange for being your hand model, and then have him dab the acrylic block with the ink pad. Saturate to taste.

Step 3:  Trim your husband's nasty, stringy cuticles, and then have him center the acrylic block over the images and press down firmly.

Step 4: Wave the image about, and then blow on it. Be careful not to spit. . .;)

Step 5: Ta-da!!!

Supplies: Bugaboo Stamps image, The Paper Studio card stock, Stampin' Up! card stock, The Paper Salon designer paper, Copic markers, Prismacolor markers, ??? ribbon, Making Memories embellishments.
