Coffee Time

Hello and Happy Monday friends!  Want to share some coffee with me?

I had so much fun with this month’s stamp releases at Flourishes that I made a number of cards that I still want to show you.  Today’s card is with the set  Grab a Cup.  Since I’m cozy in my warm house after a big snowstorm and I just finished a lovely cup of hot chocolate I had to use this one today.


Doesn’t this cup of latte look yummy?  I really wanted to give this design a cozy feel so I stamped the cup onto Flourishes Classic Kraft cardstock, cut it out with our Flourishes Perfectly Pierced Classic Window Die and then coloured it up with my prismacolor pencils.  I wanted it to have a dreamy feel with lots of steamy white rising from the cup too.  I paper pieced the napkin in the design with this great Echo Park Reflections Fall designer paper that I also used on the rest of the card too.  


The coffee beans are stamped in Memento Morocco and Espresso Truffle ink.   I think the coffee beans are some of my favourite parts of the set :)  Then I added a little Rich Chocolate Brown Seambinding ruffled along the edge and enamel dots as simple accents.  In case you were wondering the card is 5 x 5 in size.  


And lastly the inside of the card….a good card to share with a friend on any occasion!  

I truly love this set :)

Wow, fabulous card, love the colors and it looks good enough to drink. Love that stamp set, I was hoping to get it, but hasn't happened yet. I liked the other stamps sets too. A good release this month.
