Just some of My Favorite Things

Good morning everyone! I thought that I'd share a little bit of what I've been up to!

My friend Betty came over the other day and we actually got some stamping done. Each time she comes over we really don't get much done but sit and gab ~ well this time we got to stampin!!

I needed to make a card for an upcoming swap that I'm in and the theme is Coffee. For some reason I just love to make coffee cards! I knew what set to use (SU's Espress Yourself) until Betty brought this adorable set from My Favorite Things called 'hot stuff'. And the cool part, Betty did not like it! So I am the lucky recipient of this set!!! I have ordered her a TAC set to "replace" it.

The base card is Close to Cocoa. I stamped the saying 'thanks a latte' all over it in Close to Cocoa ink. I then layered on a piece of Pixie Pink that I stamped the coffee beans on with Close to Cocoa ink also. I stamped the image and colored it in, outlined it with my Close to Cocoa pen, layered it on to a piece of Pink Passion cs and then adhered it to the card. The card was still a little plain so I added some doodles around the outer edge of the Pixie Pink layer with my pink gel pen and made a photo corner and I was done. We also had to make an ATC to go with it so I basically made the same thing just on a smaller scale.

The jury's out on this card though. I might use it, I might not. It's still a little plain for me. I like to add more to a card ~ but we'll see. I still made another card "just in case" I don't want to send that one.

Here's the other card and (somewhat) matching ATC. They are different colors because I wanted to experiment a little. I like the orange, and I knew what pink looked like so I wanted to try blue too. I did not want to make another card ~ I'd have a huge stash of coffee cards laying around!

The base card is Kraft cs. I stamped the coffee mugs all over the card in Close to Cocoa. I stamped the main image and colored it in with my Only Orange marker and layered it on to a piece of Pumpkin Pie. I stamped the sentiment with Only Orange and layered that to a piece of Chocolate Chip cs and glued that to the lower right hand corner. I stamped a coffee mug from the set, colored and cut it out and used a pop dot to adhere it to the upper right corner of the sentiment panel.

For the ATC I used Brilliant Blue ink and Tempting Turquoise. I also stamped the sentiment "thanks a latte" and used my word window punch to punch it out and adhered it to the ATC.

I hope that they are well received cards. One of my favorite swaps is the coffee swap ~ and I really don't drink coffee too much.... Go figure!
