Coffee with friends

Good Morning !

For those of you who have met me, you will know of my love (for love - read addiction to) for COFFEE (especially Skinny Latté). Therefore when the stamp set called 'Perfect Blend' arrived in the catalogue, it was a MUST HAVE on my shopping list!

I have had great fun making cards with this set, and have been really pleased with the results.  By stamping onto some background papers, especially the Gingham Garden set, you can make some really cute pink and blue Gingham coffee cups.

In the sample to the right, you can see the coffee stains I made - using the plastic top off an old De-Icer can from the garage. I went around the house, looking for something round and of the right sort of size.... you would not believe how long that took me! Anyway, I know have a designated 'coffee cup' stain top safely in my craft room.

In the sample below, from the talented Deanna, she has stamped onto some background paper and then added the white label with the sentiment on. The little banners are created with the stripe from Gorgeous Grunge, just cut out with scissors. Also in the photo is Deanna's card made using the Six Sided Sampler stamp set, which has a matching hexagon punch.

On the right I have made a corrugated cardboard  holder for my coffee cup and added 'best friend' onto the designer paper behind.

We also made some 'tea cups' by adding a little string and a punched out tab attached to it. Sadly I have no photographs but I will upload some to my Facebook page in due course. You can visit my page HERE.  I hope you enjoyed my Coffee themed posting today.
