More coffee anyone?

Hello everyone, hope the week has started well for you.
This wasn't intentional but I appear to have a bit of a theme emerging with my beverage related cards of late!!


I was sooo pleased with myself and managed to buy just two stamps from the new LOTV range. I absolutely LOVE Jasmine (along with many other crafters apparently!!) and thought she deserved to be teamed with my "look only" Coffee in the Arbour paper pad.

She was coloured with Promarkers and I added a touch of white pen to highlight some areas. The pretty mat was done using a Sweet Dixie Circular die set, My Cheery Lynn Fishtail banner die set had an outing and I stamped the sentiment on a hand cut banner to sit on top. I cut the frantaged frame using little tags from my Tattered Lace Decorative Stepper set and the little sprigs behind the flowers were from the same set also. The banner does actually tuck in and out of the frame but then I went and covered it with flowers....doh!!

Some challenges

Sweet Stampin' - Paper piecing
The Ribbon Girl April Challenge - Anything Goes
Little Miss Muffet #135 - Anything Goes
In the Pink #91 - Dies and/or punches

Right, best go and get gorgeous!!

Have a good day xx

What a brilliant card Sarah, love the image and adore your design and colouring. So far I have resisted these stamps as I have bought so many stamps and never used them, but I do think I need them! Jx

Love the pinks and browns Sarah and clever use of the TL dies. Your blue card in the post below is also lovely, afraid I missed that one as we had a few days away.

Hi Sarah,
playing catch up with my comments yet again.
Now I do love a proper coffee, and take mine black with no sugar.
I also have a proper coffee machine too.
So this card really appeals to me being a coffee lover.
Great stamped image, and a super design also.
Wonderful use of very fab die cuts as well.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Sarah, this is so gorgeous hun! I love that new stamp. It's my favourite of the new LOTV release. It really is fabulous as it could be used for so many occasions! Love that you broke out the 'stroke only' paper for this one. I have several Maja sets that I break into a sweat cutting into, as they're just so gorgeous. LOVE the wee frantaged frame, what a gorgeous touch. I love everything about your gorgeous card hun. EVERYTHING! Big hugs, Wends xxxx
