I think most often cardmakers decide what kind of card they want to make and start from there. They look through their birthday stamps, pick something and begin to form their card. Strangely enough, I usually start from a product that I want to use and then develop a card I need using that product. This is what happened for Day #3. I purchased the Lawn Fawn Swish n Pop Pull Tab and wanted to make something with it. I needed to make a coffee card to post for the bloghop, and so the two plans were combined into the card that you see here.
I sometimes find interactive cards easy to do, but hard to perfect. If I had more time, I would remake this one slightly differently, but it turned out ok.
I thought it might be fun to combine a coffee themed card with the oh so trendy right now flamingos. I have some great new flamingo stamps, but when I got looking at my stash it was this older one from Art Impressions that had the perfect image to go with the Crackerbox Palace sentiment that I wanted to use.
i watercoloured the background and used Copics on the popped up elements. The message is don’t spill your coffee no matter what happens!

I got an idea for another coffee themed card, so I decided to link it up for the Blog Hop.
I bought this frog stamp from Crackerbox Palace at the Mesa Rubber Stamp Show. I bought it to go with a sentiment stamp that I found at the show that made me laugh out loud. For this blog hop though, the sentiment I chose here went with the theme much better.
I think it turned out rather well, teamed up with the coffee themed patterned paper from Moxie/
