Thanks A Latte!


Good morning!  I've got a triple threat card for you today.  I'm using the sketch from CAS on Sunday, the coffee theme from The Card Concept (my card is Clean and Simple) and the theme of three from CAS-ual Fridays.  These Paper Smooches coffee cups are NBUS* and I have no idea why - I love the fun pattern on them and I think it looks great on colorful patterned paper!  I used a kraft card base because I thought the colours popped better off of it and also because it just seems like coffee themed cards should use kraft.  To finish it off I felt like it needed a little something to ground the sentiment so I used the saucer image with VersaMark ink. That's it for me now - have a wonderful day!




Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Kraft) Papertrey Ink
Patterned Paper:  (Snippets 6x6) Studio Calico
Stamps:  (Coffee cup & saucer from Cyber Cafe) Paper Smooches, (Letters from Claire's ABCs) Lawn Fawn
Inks:  (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko

Hi Jen, I'm visiting from the Card Concept and it says we have to comment on the card in front and behind of us - which I think is a FANTASTIC way of generating more comments and saying nice things to people. So, first "Hi" and I really do like the clean and simple look of your card. That is a cute coffee mug and I like it in all different colors! Happy Stamping!

Hey Jen, these bright and cheerful cups really do 'pop' with the kraft card base! and thanks for the feedback I totally agree that I should've used a darker ink for the sentiment. cheers Ange
