Coffee Cards

>> Tuesday, January 30, 2018

Hi Everyone,

I'm happy to share these cards today, because they celebrate my favorite hot beverage...Coffee!  

This first card features some new stamps from DRS Designs, and I couldn't wait to pair them up with this Paper Coffee Cup image that we've all been so eager to stamp with.  Paper piecing works great on this stamp, so I decorated it using the Shamrock Scroll (550F), and attached it to a die cut rectangle that was stamped using the new Better Irish Blessings Greeting (555G). 

I made my background by stamping a white piece of cardstock with the new Silhouette Shamrock Field (558K) stamp and covering it in a gold glitter with green tints.  While I drink my coffee black every morning, adding little Irish Cream to a cup after dinner, is a delicious treat for sure :)

I thought this little Ladybug Stack would be perfect, because part of this card sentiment mentions friends.  I stamped, colored and fussy cut it out and attached them to a die cut panel.  I also die cut some cups and decorated them using some background stamps, echoing the bug image by stacking them too.

Adding some sponging to the greeting, I attached it in between the two images and added some gems before adhering it all to a dry embossed heart background.  What friend wouldn't want to receive this as a coffee date invite around Valentine's Day :)

Here is the list of stamps used on this card:

Thanks for visiting today!

Karin, these are some awesomely fun cards. I love what you did with the new Irish sentiment and coffee cup on the first card - so great. The Valentines day card is so cool with the stacked cups done in fun bg stamps and the stacked up ladybugs. Fun stuff!!!
