Thanks

For my third and probably final card for the hop I decided to use a stamp set that Ann Custer sent me as a winning prize from the last Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. I'm not much of a tea drinker but I love this beautiful image and thought it would make a lovely thank you card. I stamped the image using Memento tuxedo black ink.  I colored the image using Copic markers in shades of warm grey, pink, and light green. I added some clear Wink of Stella glitter pen to the teapot, cup, and spoon for some beautiful shimmer. I then added some pink Stickles onto the roses for some dimension and additional glittery shine. I cut my panel out using a Nestibilities circle die and matted it onto a piece of chocolate chip brown cardstock that I felt wasn't dark enough so I colored it darker with my Copic E49 marker. That gave it that dark espresso color I was looking for. I cut that piece of cardstock out using an MFT pierced circle die and matted the two together and added some dashed lines using a Zig writer pen in chocolate. I layered some gorgeous pink patterned papers from the My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Madison Avenue 6x6 paper collection. I cut the fish tail banner using a Jillian Vance banner die. I added a few espresso sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and that completes my final card for the hop. Enjoy!

So glad you got to use your new stamp. Your card is lovely. Beautiful color combo too. If you still have my address I would love to get a coffee card from you sometime. Since we are both in Missouri maybe we can pen pal. I am no longer blogging but still crafting and working on lots of projects. (My email in case you need it is nathansmom7@gmail.com) Have a great day.

Really a very lovely card. That flowery cup and pot are almost lifelike. The papers are pretty too; those stripes really draws the eye in. Love how you've framed it within a circle too. Great font on your sentiment. Bev
