Coffee Talk

Ugh, yesterday was NOT a good day, but I'm hoping that today will be better.  I did manage to make a card yesterday though, and I inked up two more brand-new stamp sets!

The mug is from the set Nothing's Better Than and HOW did I make my first card with COFFEE CUPS and not the CHOCOLATE or the COOKIES?!  I don't even DRINK coffee!  But I thought they worked best with the color challenge I wanted to use.  I got Ornate Thanks on my first big catalog order as well; I didn't get the dies for it because I didn't think I would use them, but I love the font styles on the sentiments in the stamp set.

So three challenges for today!  Let's start with the Global Design Project sketch:

This was fun, I just stamped the mugs randomly on the card front until I liked it and thought I had enough of them.  Next up is the Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge:

It's hard to tell the difference between Pool Party and Mint Macaron on my card, but I promise I used both.  The solid stamp on the mugs is Pool Party (with some Wink of Stella because I love it), and the steam is Pool Party stamped off once; the cardstock strip for the sentiment is Pool Party.  The little star accents are Mint Macaron.

Finally, here's the Paper Players theme challenge:

This gave me the excuse to ink up Ornate Thanks for the sentiment, and I still had lots of white space to keep this card CAS.  I do have lots of friends who drink coffee (and think that me and my hubs are weirdos because we don't) so I'm sure I'll have a use for this card soon.

Hope your day goes well, kids.  Cheers!

I was on the fence about this stamp set, but after seeing your card, I LOVE it! I DO love coffee, but rarely use coffee-related stamps, but the retro vibe that this set has makes me want to get it right now! AND have a cup of coffee! I predict a winner with this sketch, too, it's perfect! AND so happy you shared it with us at the Players too!

I love this stamp set - my first card was with a cocktail (read into that what you will Christie!!) I love your little tumble of coffee cups - a perfect thank you! Thanks for playing along with my CAS Thanks challenge over at The Paper Players this week!
