A Morning Cup
My friend Sarah asked me if I would be willing to do some challenges with her this year to get her motivated in her stamp room. Of course I said yes and we spent some time talking on the phone deciding what kind of challenges we would be doing and even made out a mini calendar. So here's our first challenge, make a card using a coffee themed stamp. I LOVE coffee... So you know I would love coffee themed stamps and what better stamp set than this one from Verve called Delightful and Delicious.
Here's what I used.... the base is SU soft sky ... oh hear my plea SU and bring back soft sky... I then layered it with some dp from DCWV Linen stack. I added SU Crumb cake to the base too using the scallop trim border punch, my new favorite border punch. The notebook paper is also a Verve stamp from the set Blue Skies along with the little swirl peeking out the side. I stamped the sentiment (verve delightful and delicious set) on the notebook paper with expresso ink SU. I then stamped the cups in expresso and blue bayou ink and cut them out. It needed just one more thing so I added the flower, another verve stamp from petals and stems, to the side stamping it in blue bayou also.
Thanks for stopping by and Sarah I'll be checking your gallery to see what you created :) Have a great day.
