Hello My Friend-Coffee And Cards With Celeste And Deb Collaboration
Hello, and welcome to the October installment of Coffee and Cards with Celeste and Deb. We have another fabulous guest designer with us this month as well as a fun and as well as a fun twist to our collaboration. Our wonderful guest designer this month is Jennifer Loftfield. We also have an additional surprise for our dear crafty friend Terri Burson. We all decided to create our cards using the brand new wreath stamp she created for So Suzy Stamps courtesy of Deb, who purchased them for all three of us! Thank you Deb!
To create my card I started with some gorgeous patterned papers from the Authentique Remembrance 6x6 paper pad and layered them onto my white card base. I then stamped the wreath onto a piece of distressed patterned paper from the same paper pack using Copic-friendly ink. I colored the image using my alcohol markers in coordinating colors to match the paper. I stamped the sentiment from the Winnie & Walter The Big, The Bold, and The Happy stamp set in the center of the wreath. I felt that the focal panel looked a bit empty so I went through my stamps and used the beautiful decorative scroll from the Simon Says Stamp Inside Holiday Greetings stamp set at the top and bottom. To finish my card off I added some Recollections clear rhinestones to the scroll and the berries on the wreath and popped the whole focal panel up off of the card using some 3M foam tape. I hope you like it!
As for my coffee choice I opted for a nice maple pecan iced coffee from Dunkin' Donuts. The calendar may state that fall is here but mother nature apparently didn't get the memo. It was 98 degrees here in southeast Missouri today and I was out running around in shorts and flip flops. I'm hoping it will cool off soon and we can start to enjoy fall. Anyway, be sure and pop on over to Deb and Jennifer's blogs and show them some love by leaving a comment on their posts!
