Cavalcade of brown!

Happy Summer! A new season means a new Blog Hop & Link-up with the Coffee Loving Cardmakers and I always enjoy playing along & seeing all the gorgeous projects folks come up with.


I admit to having a pretty severe coffee-in-the-morning habit. And in the afternoon. And possibly the evening...! I used a Verve Stamps sentiment, character stamps from my stash, and an YNS die to make this hopefully humorous message. I stamped with QQ chalk ink directly onto a white cardstock embossed with a TE folder. I sponged the same ink onto the white "coffee" die cut. I used distress ink to stamp the coffee-themed rubber stamp onto a coffee cup sleeve.

The teapot & cups (Elizabeth Craft Designs) were backed with an adhesive sheet before cutting, to make them easier to adhere, and die-cut in my BigShot. All of the papers, except for the card base & coffee cup sleeve, are from a CTMH collection. They were just perfect! The delicate cups were cut from one double-sided paper. I finished the card with a bit of baker's twine.
