This might be my last card for the fall bloghop. I do have another stamp set, that I don’t think I have ever used for these bloghops but time is running out.
This card came out of no where. I wanted to make a card with a coffee bean background that I had made with distress crayons, but by the time I picked out the stamp and sentiment, my mind went in a totally different direction. It was going to be a bit of a throw in card without much thought, but surprisingly, I ended up liking it a lot. I think it is because I really wanted to use the sentiment and it went well with the other elements I chose.
Skipping Stones Designs Funny Coffee Vol #1, Wplus9 A Pocketful stamp set, SEI canvas blue jean paper, Simon Says Stamp cardstock, Peerless watercolors,Simon Says Stamp card base, real coffee beans and Scor tape.
I usually have a new (to me) coffee stamp to use for each of these bloghops and this Fall bloghop is no exception. I know this stamp is new only to me, as it is in fact, a recently retired one from Taylored Expressions.
This stamp set spoke to me as it reminded me of my coffee meet ups at Extreme Bean with my friend MJ, who has now moved to greener pastures (literally, the greener and lusher Vancouver Island).
Taylored Expressions Perfect Blend stamp set, Reverse Confetti All Framed Up die, Memory Box Coffee Bean Collection die ( made a mental note that the littler beans in this set could double as mouse turds should I ever have such a need for a different card LOL), Color Burst watercolor powder, Judikins Microglaze, Tim Holtz Distress Markers, Simon Says Stamp card base, and Scor tape.
I didn’t intend to make another Downton Abbey card. I DID intend to use my What the Doodle Teacup stamp and die from Papertrey Ink. Why fight it though………..the papers in the Downtown Abbey Collection are a perfect compliment to the delicate gold embossed teacup.
